Re: Infanticide

You forgot to add "eternal values" to infanticide as in Infanticide and Eternal Values. It seems to be your favorite phrase lately. If it's chicken soup being discussed, I'm certain you'd find something of eternal value there as well! The chickens sacrificed for our benefit would certainly hope so....

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

Sure: what goes up must come down. Sisyphus learned this the hard way ...and like Sisyphus some god of enlightenment must have condemned you to repeat the same BS incessantly; perhaps after having egregiously infringed some divine right of an enlighted one in a former life? You should get to "know ...

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

Plato’s cave is such that wherever attempts at aligning with objective quality take place there will be an equal effort to secularize and corrupt it. Is there a mathematical formula for that? Yes, the US policy gridlock formula is Republicans minus Democrats equals zero. R - D = 0. Paradoxically, d...

Re: God is testing us all

Hahaha! Well said, how could God refuse that! I would add though, um God, if you do reveal your existence to Dubious, please be gentle.. Does that mean I have to be in a car crash instead of falling off a horse to get the message? Besides my "appeal" was ecumenical not personal. If god reveals ITS ...

Re: God is testing us all

Dear God... ...it's time to turn the tables by reverentially asking you to confirm YOUR existence because WE obviously can't! Every time we try it ends up in some stupid philosophic quagmire, no doubt a source of comedy for you if you actually exist. So if you're testing us that implies your interes...

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

We've also learned that the estimated 1.324 billion Hindus in India are all full of shit for taking eternal values seriously. Among all the 1.324 billion Hindus who take eternal values seriously would that also include followers of these eminent gurus who definitely take their $eternal values$ seri...

Re: ~ Animals Deserve to Have Rights ~

I entertain the thought of extending empathy towards other living things. Especially fellow mammals. Why can't we extend empathy to other human-like mammals? Yes, why not indeed. Since we force most of them to feed us or use in research, we at least owe them respect and as easy a death as possible....

Re: Religious lies. Why do we knowingly accept them?

I think we will never be able to know for sure whether there is life after death, one way or the other. That uncertainty presents itself mostly as a formality of logic in the sense that the overwhelming probability of death as the THE final event is prevented by the rules of logic from tying its ne...

Re: ~ Animals Deserve to Have Rights ~

Being that these animals are lesser, does this entitle them to a different treatment by humans, e.g. killing them so that humans can survive? What right do they have to survive in competition with humans? Is it just you saying they have the right to survive? What is the authority that says they hav...

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

Going to sleep at night, you are not afraid to do in case you never wake up again, because you know you will wake up . This is far less certain than knowing that the sun will rise tomorrow even if death should unexpectedly preempt my seeing it. Anyways, thank you for the pep talk but frankly I'm mo...
