Re: Confession of a "Nazi hunter"

Was there anybody like that ever around and if so, who was it; when and where did it happen. There has never been a person who is omniscient. They all failed in spreading their religions including those who claimed to be omniscient. How an omniscient can fail? Do you even know what 'omnicient' mean...

Re: Confession of a "Nazi hunter"

I think we should submit to omniscient since S/He simply knows the outcome of our action, the best for us, whether we only know what would probably lead to the best for us. Almost the same rule applies to other people who know more than us but they are subject to our judgment since people with newe...

Re: Confession of a "Nazi hunter"

September 7, 2019 About the racist dachshund. All Nazis seek to poison others' minds. Dear Luxin Thank you for your kind words. I have written a little poem just for you as a token of my appreciation . It's called: "Tomorrow Belongs to Me." TOMORROW BELONGS TO ME The sun in the meadow is summery wa...

Re: Expressing Emotions

What comes more natural to the human heart the desire to express “positive” thoughts of joy, hope optimism and love, or the desire to express “negative” thoughts of pain, suffering, hate, rage and pessimism? My view is that people generally have a natural disposition to express more “negative” thou...

Re: One for the loons.

Not least, asking for proof to make a point, which is so common on philosophy forums, for conditions where proof doesn't apply only proves to someone with an iota of common sense that the one demanding it is a fucking idiot. You're pushing against an open door, mate. Actually it was a not so secret...

Re: One for the loons.

The term common sense is actually an oxymoron; in practice it's extremely elitist. I dunno. Seems to me that often enough, people who appeal to common sense don't understand the issue. ...except that common sense, if one really has it, would know that opinions are not facts nor are they theory but ...

Re: "if morality comes from God then why is there disagreement about it among believers?"

That would likely be true if he ever said anything. All we ever hear are humans pretending. I think if I were seriously lookin' at Christianity: I'd find myself the cleanest translations of the oldest books and go with that. I think I'd avoid preachers and congregations and folks keen to tell me wh...

Re: One for the loons.

Please don't ask me for details. I am hopeless in both quantum mechanics and formal logic. Well, there's a load of crazy shit we haven't worked out. The whole point of this thread is that anyone who thinks they've worked it all out is a loony. You must allow people their illusions. That's sometimes...

Re: Past, PRESENT--future?

Anything that can be said upon time rests on speculation. But if one just takes it at face value - if any such thing can be said of time - it manifests as the rate of change within a process. Would either time and space even need to exist if there is nothing which requires these fundamental precondi...

Re: Why America can never be great again.

Dubious If you say so; you have the right to create your mythical values if it makes life easier. But others may not feel the need to confront the great question of Being or in any way feel religious about it; neither does the scientific mind concern itself with values. Their values lie in what is ...

Re: Why America can never be great again.

If the universe is structured on the great chain of being... It's not. Again, what does the universe have to do with imagined constructs of hierarchies? It's a thoroughly human ancient/medieval construct overloaded with all sorts of theistic components and implications as common in those days. ...t...

Re: Why America can never be great again.

Am I right to say that if an asteroid hit the earth and destroyed everything on it including Man, the concept of value would no longer exist since we have invented the concept? Yes! If those who invented the concept no longer exist - which in the case of humans wouldn't be a loss - whatever values ...
