Re: Common Courtesy

When it comes to space travel I'd rather do it through a-state-of-the-art virtual reality device sitting in a rocking chair than the actual experience of traveling through an endless void until the next rock is reached. The boredom would be intense, perhaps even to the point of suicide in spite of a...

Re: The Dualistic Mind

Opening to the inner vertical psychological direction reveals human conscious purpose in addition to animal purpose. Balancing the two is not so easy. ...inner vertical psychological direction , or whatever you wish to call it, has so far revealed virtually nothing of human conscious purpose , thou...

Re: The Dualistic Mind

Secular intolerance is a most dangerous expression of the dualistic mind. Spoken like someone who is spinning in his spew. This just proves how small your scope of understanding is. People like Nick cannot come to terms with the awareness of their own creations. He is convinced that his projections...

Re: The Dualistic Mind

Why would the deity of the entire universe - billions of worlds in billions of galaxies over billions of years - be so concerned about the reproductive behaviour of particular hominids on a particular world at a particular time? I guess, if the "third dimension" of thought is one where people convi...

Re: The Dualistic Mind

There is obviously no such thing as what Nick and other evangelists believe - a universal-scale controlling masculine spirit that is greatly disturbed by the sexual behaviour of one particular species of hominids on one particular planet in one particular galaxy. Let's face it, we don't like to be ...

Re: What could make morality objective?

The one of us who does not believe in objective right and wrong... ...says I am wrong. ...says I am doing wrong. ...says I am being the wrong kind of person. ...says I have wronged him. ...insists he is right. ...says I do not respond in the right way. ...says that it is not right of me to be what ...

Re: What could make morality objective?

According you your theory, it couldn't be. I never made a theory out of it. Facts don't require theories which is one reason why you confabulate so many of them, as intentional distortions of what others mean and say. By now, everyone who reads your posts understands your methodology. But you're a ...

Nick is a sprinkler - the stuff sprays out in a fairly arbitrary way in all directions.
That makes it sound as if he's got a mental bladder problem with the respondees having to wipe the floor!

Re: The Dualistic Mind

Re: What could make morality objective?

It's not "what I think." It's that you use moral terms of condemnation (hypocrite, coward, etc.) and apparently expect us to receive them as objective. In other words, it's your own argument you've undermined by so doing. Let's go to an extreme example because you refuse to acknowledge simple logic...

Re: Music

No! I'm not a Brit though my origins are European. I remember a few of those...Danger Man, the Prisoner (both with Patrick McGoohan); Elizabeth R (Glenda Jackson); iClaudius, all great stuff when turning on the tube was worth it. Even some of the old American westerns weren't bad. I agree, there's h...
