Re: Verbal abuse and cyber-bullying on Philosophy Now forums

... If you are a kid lurking I will now introduce you to I, Libertine even though it could be dangerous for you. Never let the educated progressives know you are aware of it. It is too insulting for their image. But when no one is looking, if you read it you may find yourself having a good laugh. S...

What do you mean by 'open to more'?

What is it you are actually proposing to teach them?

Re: Verbal abuse and cyber-bullying on Philosophy Now forums

You have convinced me that one of the most essential techniques to teach is how to avoid the psychologically damaging effects of radiations from the irate secular progressive personality. So basically you'll be teaching them to avoid answering questions about what they believe or what they would do...

Re: Verbal abuse and cyber-bullying on Philosophy Now forums

Christianity is part of a perennial philosophy and this philosophy always was. ... Always was what? The essence of Christianity didn't begin with Jesus: he actualized it. ... I think you'll find the clue is in the name. The very thing which is now called the Christian religion existed among the anc...

Er!? if it is a reality then you will always be getting somewhere, that's the point. You don't seem to understand the concept, is this because you just wiki stuff rather than go study or do it?

When we compare St. Paul’s description of himself with that of the modern educated Paul it becomes obvious why why the essence of religion devolves into secularism. ...
Are you mental? St.Paul created the 'secular religion' you deplore, his sect was the winner in the West.

Re: Verbal abuse and cyber-bullying on Philosophy Now forums

Why is it that the distinction between "I' and the self, so well known in the East at least theoretically is so condemned in the West as it is here. ...

Re: Verbal abuse and cyber-bullying on Philosophy Now forums

So it becomes obvious why the idea that "I am not I" cannot be discussed. ... It does, you refuse to discuss exactly what it is you are proposing?

Re: Verbal abuse and cyber-bullying on Philosophy Now forums

Greta, you seem to have a strong emotional rejection of Christianity. This is normal because over time Christianity has devolved into sects of Christendom or man made Christianity into society producing mixed results. Many here have had bad experiences with these mixed results. However, St. Paul pr...

Re: Scapegoats for Secular Progressives

Marx describes secularized religion. ... No he wasn't as you are just making up a nonsense term. If you are not then explain what a non-'secularised' religion is and what it would involve?

Re: Scapegoats for Secular Progressives

You think in terms of collectives. ... Actually no, I think in terms philosophical. It's you who is collectivising others. Science says 'We must live,' and seeks the means of prolonging, increasing, facilitating and amplifying life, of making it tolerable and acceptable, wisdom says 'We must die,' ...
