Re: Ad hominem

There seems to be an element of confusion here. Whilst it is true that many use the accusation ad hominem when they suffer a personal attack or some insulting remark. There is a strict difference between an insult and an ad hominem . If a person says something stupid and are met with insults, that ...

Re: Ad hominem

"Ad Hominem" was labeled to particularly make one notice that the challenging argument of another is focussed on attacking the person rather than the argument. The person COULD be a justified challenge if their motive is signficant to the position of the arguer. As such, it may not be a fallacy. For...

Re: Ad hominem

More time is wasted on Latin phrases that are not understood by the people who use them than is thinkable to serious people. Usually the abuse of the phrase ad hominem involves conflating a "personal attack" with a "logical" error, that of genetic falacy. Very commonly it involves immunizing onesel...

Re: Castration of less evolutionary fit males

Before I address any of your arguments, I need you to be aware that the concern of abuses BY these people calling themselves, "Incels", is absurdly a trivial concern compared to the problems that occur on the opposite end of the spectrum. Those who abuse are more often those who normally HAVE what t...

Re: Castration of less evolutionary fit males

This is NOT about me, you stupid fuck! You introduced this arrogant thread to which I am responding only. Whatever, regardless you are very emotionally invested in it. Why? Because I empathize for these people as victims of some social factors that many are BLIND to notice. The fact that society to...

Re: Evil Right Wing Fascism will eventually win

Why do evil right wing fascists always win elections - if not now, then in the near future? What is it with Right Wing Fascism that makes it so much more popular than say left-wing liberalism? ...., why is Fascism so popular? Because animals normally are limited to LOCAL phenomena rather than GLOBA...

Re: Castration of less evolutionary fit males

Most of this is just dreck and wallowing in self-pity. There of course is no exact "science" to such a thing, however generally it's a no-brainer that more "positive" qualities and fewer "negative" ones would be beneficial. You're blaming "society" or "the world" as a whole under the pretenses that...

Re: Castration of less evolutionary fit males

The point is that it is not 'stupid'. If is it, then why do most people think it 'normal' to WANT anything at all? How is "society" to blame for you being non-sexually satisfied? You aren't entitled to sex "simply because you exist" or imagine yourself to be a "nice guy", "good girl", or "super dup...

Re: What is Truth?

I think you don't recognize that 'values' are themselves concepts and how I interpret them. The value 'assignment' is just a type of relationship classification that is linked to other concepts . We are not likely disagreeing here but talking past each other due to the confusion of the subtleties o...

Re: What is Truth?

I can't determine what the alternative you have in mind is other than to permit apriori concepts that are complex, like 'god', as one example for why they assumed the least input (premise) has to be about science. Alternative to what? There is no such thing as the Kantian nonsense, "a priori," know...

Re: What is Truth?

Dogson was a polymath: religious, mathematician, writer, poet, politician, photographer, and more. I would not consult him on any philosophical questions, but do recognize his keen intellect. He dabbled in cryptography and symbolic logic, which was, in his day, still innocent. It [symbolic logic] h...

Re: Castration of less evolutionary fit males

P.S.S. "Narscist" is a flawed term to use. The original 'god' of the Greek who fell in love with his own reflection was understood to be actually desirable but flawed by having TOO much love that got his head too big for himself. How the use of this term is perverted to demonstrate some ugly peron t...

Re: Castration of less evolutionary fit males

This is a polemical post, regardless I believe it raises a valid point regarding the so-called "incel" subculture (and the assorted freaks and degenerates who comprise it). As far as evolutionary psychology is concerned, only men at the bottom of the evolutionary hierarchy have to potentially resor...

Re: Castration of less evolutionary fit males

'Incel'. I've never heard that term. I suppose nature just takes care of those who are so repulsive to the opposite sex that they never get to pass on their unappealing genes. "Incel" is "involuntary celebate" and came to be popularized by some forum or subforums that many similar people wrote on. ...

Re: What is Truth?

If what you intend by the word, "Totality," is that which, "includes the class of things that are Absolutely Impossible," it is what everyone else means by the word, "nonsense." Your philosophy sounds like it was written by Lewis Carroll, (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson), "I daresay you haven't had much ...
