Re: Music

Was never particularly fond of Pavarotti's voice. Corelli here though much older is far more virile imo.

What is the difference between nothing and something?
Nothing! If nothing is considered as something. In that case, nothing is the root of ALL somethings. The situation couldn't be clearer! :mrgreen:

Re: THE IMPENDING DEATH OF THE AMERICAN NATION

I think Canada might need a wall to keep out the hoards of gun wielding morons, when the shit hits the fan. Didn't think of that! It looks like we're forced to build The Great Wall of Canada and have the Americans pay for it! :twisted: Ask them to point to Canada on a map. If they know, let them in...

Re: THE IMPENDING DEATH OF THE AMERICAN NATION

....not a problem! Canada being in the neighborhood will be happy to take over. Many Americans will also be happy! They won't have to cross the border to get cheap insulin.

Re: Locked Mind Thought Experiment

Theories have always been judged by probability enhanced by its correspondence to observation and experimentation; never by certainty. A hypothesis is viable only to the extent it can become a theory; it has to begin somewhere.The point being that any objective toward definitives remains bogus and i...

Re: How can I reach certainty about some things and obtain peace of mind?

Being certain about some things would probably cause the opposite to peace of mind. When they say that ignorance is bliss, while not being true is at least partly true.

Re: Science Philosophy

Anyway, as the article you linked to points out, it is entirely possible for world class physicists to have a 'mystical' side. As above, anything goes, but if you have a job to do, arguing about the meaning is a distraction; several of the physicists mentioned have been credited with the phrase 'Sh...

Re: Science Philosophy

Tell you what chaps, if you could just do me the courtesy of reading the article I wrote, you should get a pretty good idea of what I think about quackery and telos. If having read it you still have questions, by all means ask them in that context. https://philosophynow.org/issues/133/Philosophy_of...

Re: Science Philosophy

Dunno which claim of Jung's you think qualifies as science, Dubious, so if you want to make a case, who knows? You might persuade me. I'm not saying it's a science nor can it be denoted as one in the normal meaning of the term. But does everything have to be considered as such so not to be deemed q...

Thanks in part to Popper, 'proper scientists' have the theory to dismiss Freud, Jung et al as quacks.
Do you yourself believe that Freud and Jung are in fact quacks? What theory would "proper scientists" have to dismiss them as such...especially Jung!

Re: THE FOUR HORSEMEN OF AMERICA'S APOCALYSE HAVE ARRIVED

I like the Prince of Whales one. Current events in the U.S. makes clear it takes only one confounding father to undo what the founding fathers did. A new nation is about to be born! Watch out world! :x :twisted:
