Re: Hypocrisy against women

He was once capable of discussion and was occasionally responsive to reason. Now he has become an extremist, seeing the battle against the irredeemably evil "Left" as a kind of desperate holy war that must be won at all costs or disaster will follow. I would be concerned to hear a Muslim speak of w...

Re: Hypocrisy against women

Leftists are dishonest. Such statements reveal a profound level of stupidity. There's the shame. He was once capable of discussion and was occasionally responsive to reason.

Re: Hypocrisy against women

I don’t really think it’s up to me, to refute my view of the insane Left. For example, abolishing the electoral college is insane. Know why a wall was put up before you tear it down, Leftie. Walker, what happened to you? It is you who appears to have gone insane. You were weirdly single-minded befo...

Re: Do you believe or do you epoché?

When it comes to things that seem to be beyond all reasonable ability to know or verify--for example such as whether or not there is a God or whether or not there are "dimensions" to the world and our existences which transcend our average, every day experiences--do you have a belief one way or the...

Re: What is the purpose of computers?

The first brain would have been a relatively small collection of glial cells, although all dynamic entities, living and nonliving, ultimately perform calculations. Remarkably accurate. According to the latest research, the first brain was developed upon the sense of sight. It saw a food or a predat...

Re: What is the purpose of computers?

And what is a human brain a reflection of? The simpler brains of other species. Simpler brains denote prior brains, so go back to the very first brain. Assuming there is such an idea as a prior past. What was the very first brain a reflection of? A Computer can never be (imprecise) for it wouldn't ...

Re: Who has more control of our thinking; God or Satan?

I see very little difference between other animals and human animals. What do you see, other than our intelligence, that is so different? We mostly have the same traits as the other higher forms of life. Regards DL Generally I'd agree that humans are very, very similar to other species, despite wha...

Re: Who has more control of our thinking; God or Satan?

What is Original Sin if not ignoring a stupid command to not gain the knowledge of all things? Regards DL According to some simple people a few thousand years ago. As I say, I think Original Sin is an analogy for human capacities that, not only bring us empowerment, but also suffering. The way I se...

Re: WHY DO YOU THINK WE ARE HERE? WHY DO WE EXIST?

Atto, you have to make piece with entry. As the Hindus noticed with the construction of the deity, Shiva, that destruction is needed for regeneration. Why are we here? Let's follow the breadcrumbs leading to us: - Star ignition and planet formation - Evolution of rocks and organic chemicals to state...

Re: Why humans can't get rid of their egos ?

I wonder if you are as capable of the same violence, or might you feel shattered afterwards because you could feel empathy with the victim/s? Clarity: I mean "same" as in "I have no reservations with taking life". So from an empirical/consequentialist perspective it's same same but different. In re...

Re: Why humans can't get rid of their egos ?

Yes, I personally find reason and science to be grounding. Even as a young adult I was nervous about ghosts and whatnot. The issue with ego is keeping it under control. The trouble with being proud is that, in a way the puffed up person taking the credit was not the same person who did those things...
