Re: Pyramids of the Ancient Pre-Socratics as a Physicalization of Abstract Philosophical Theory

Science is witchcraft in the modern sense as it is strictly just transmuting phenomena into other useless phenomena. Now tell me what science is exactly? What I am arguing is "definition"...nothing else...I am not arguing science or no science. I don't need to argue with you about the impossible de...

You have no objective standard for what constitutes "science" You are doing ineffective witchcraft. None of your work is even vaguely adjacent to science.

Re: Religion

Even experts in the secular study of "religion" can't make up their collective minds what the right way to distinguish a "religion" really is. If you look at the literature, you'll see that's true. So it's not just my say-so, it's the reality. What experts have you consulted, Immanuel? Religion is ...

Re: Religion

Religion is just another category which contains many distinct things. This is exactly what I'm saying...too many things, and with no distinction being made among them. ...the category is used because it is useful and it contains stuff. Not really. It's used because the people who use it are ignora...

Re: Religion

I gave an excellent challenge to you: IF the Atheist is so 'evil', AND we lack a belief in the delusions you want us to default some faith in, then WHY wouldn't it be MORE rational of an Atheist to PRETEND not to be 'atheist' but rather some religiously devout thinker imposing wisdom behind the per...

Re: Religion

What sorts of people believe in gods? Religious people. Not true. "Religious" is not just used to cover polytheists, but theists as well, and often other non-god religions, like Buddhism. Depending on how one defines it, even Atheism is a candidate, since it's a) an opinion about god/Gods, and b) a...

Re: Religion

Seems a bit excessive. There are only a handful of raging idiots who will describe themselves as simply "human beings"*, humans will typically say "i'm Hungarian" or "I'm an accountant". that does not in any way show that the label "human" was invented by ferrets or fish, nor that it is a dismissiv...

Re: Religion

Immanuel Can wrote: I would simply argue that the term "religion" is a term of Atheist artifice, not an accurate or informative one. There is a hint of truth in this . More than a hint, I would say. In fact, I think that you will find nobody of any ideological stripe who will define themselves as s...

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

The last part, which is the unclearest to me, is the future. It's a mistery. How can I tell things aren't going to change? People say "I'm going to do this" or "I will do that", but how can they be sure they're right? I don't see a way to tell if I'll be alive in the next few minutes, so how can pe...

Hi, I don't understand what flashdangerpants by format. could someone explain what he means by format? That was an inside joke, I wouldn't worry about it. What the dude in your video is on about for that second step is a test for completeness. So you come up with an proposed definition of a thing i...

Re: Does a pregnant woman carry a human being/person or just 'life'/meat?

You con't get an awful lot of consideration just for being a person, you get most of it for what sort of person you are, and in what circumstances. Want to test that? just look at what passes for a discussion of immigration round these parts. Prior to the viability point at roughly 26 weeks gestatio...
