Re: What is Wisdom in Atheist Philosophy?

Yes, more than one place isn’t necessary. It just has to be real to be real. No, it just has to be anchored unconditionally in your mind to be real. Extreme examples of that are insanity and theism. Anchored in your mind = real? What are delusions if not fade, fixed beliefs? Insanity and theism = r...

Re: What is Wisdom in Atheist Philosophy?

I believe there’s a spiritual or immaterial world. I just don’t know whether there’s a God ruling over it. It only has to be in one place to be real. Yes, more than one place isn’t necessary.

Re: Jordan B. Peterson - hero or villain?

Just another boring chapter in the enlightenment business with nothing outstanding to say; just more regurgitation of the stupid crap albeit spiced somewhat differently to make it look original.

Re: Trump - a puzzling enigma

No puzzling enigma just a loathsome decrepit buffoon who borders on treason. Makes friends with the likes of Putin and Kim Jong-dung while disparaging the fallen. If that fucker's nose grew an inch for every lie he told it would be over 20,000 inches long. Trying to find a single redeeming feature p...

Re: What is "worldly wisdom" according to God?

1 Corinthians 3: 19 stated : For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written: “He catches the wise in their craftiness” If so, does that mean all worldly knowledge are wrong? Didn't God gave man the ability to think and have common sense? If non-believers wisdom is fool...

Re: What is Truth?

Christianity hasn't improved the world by one iota; the opposite is true. It was fraudulent to begin with maintaining itself purely through lies, subterfuge and coercion. Those with the morals of a Trump would have reached high levels in its hierarchy. The horrors Christianity imposed on others, es...

Re: What is Truth?

If Plato is right, isn't the acquired results of humanity worthy of compassion since it isn't natural but just mechanical reactions to natures laws. If we have become abnormal Man who has lost the capacity for conscious choice and become like a beast, isn't that worthy of compassion? Who's going to...

Re: What is Truth?

I doubt if humanity will make it to the next century. It certainly won't matter! The present crop of terrestrial humans is so despicable and vile, all the other intelligent beings in the universe have evaded them. There is no Fermi paradox. Earth is shunned because the rest of the universe does not...

Re: It's about time.

I realize it's more complicated but being simple-minded it always seemed that on the whole as space measures distance between objects whether they be stars, planets or quarks, time measures the period between events, accelerated or not, whether they be intra-process or inter-process causing time & s...

Re: What is Truth?

Eternity is not forever but is a cycle following the cycle of our universe or what the East calls the breath of Brahma. We don’t know if the universe recycles but if it does it’s simply a statistic with each new version being different from the last. Even if it repeats endlessly in exactly the same...

Re: What is Truth?

Meaning is our God. Whatever is our primary psychological purpose is our God. For some it is fame, fortune, sex, prestige, or other sources supplied by the world. You must have something, even denial, that offers meaning. Those like Simone have felt a deeper need for meaning that originates at the ...

Re: What is Truth?

The Socratic axiom "Know Thyself" suggest that there is a self and a quality that knows it or observes it. You refer to the limitations of the self and its senses. But what are the limitations of that which knows thyself? To Know Thyself may not be the best advice When showing less of virtue and mo...
