Re: What is truth?

For the wise, Truth is self evident, and supports all things equally! Yes, even relativists! Truth is never self evident. It takes a lot of analysis and careful thought. The a-priori level of proof defines what is self evident. Then the a-posterior level of proof must proceed analytically from ther...

Re: What is truth?

...Obviously empiricism is NOT great NOR does it makes the most sense to other people. You cannot legitimately speak for others. You can only speak for yourself. Therefore you should have written it the way I wrote it. With more information of where the red herrings are and what and how the strange...

Re: What is truth?

It helps to do a complete survey of what it out there before you decide on what to embrace yourself. That's basically my decision model for everything. The "complete" word needs to emphasized here. I wonder how much of everything you have actually completed before you decided what to embrace? Empir...

Re: What is truth?

Most if not all the philosophy books I have read condemn relativism as immoral and valueless. That is why I also condemn it. It is nothing more than Sophistry. And none of these arguments condemning relativism are false, misleading, unsound, nor invalid in any way, shape nor form? Let me guess all ...

Re: What is truth?

There are some people who believe truth is relative and subjective. These are now called relativists. Others believe truth is absolute and objective. These are now called Empiricists. They'll never agree. And that is the reason they will never agree. The power of beliefs will always prevent people ...

Re: String particle –--> LHC –--> multi-D

I don't see any relevance of these physics models with Philosophy. The “philosophical stone” in this post is hidden in the question: Is “string” physical or only mathematical searching? The answer can be one: “ String” is only mathematical not physical searching because practically is impossible to...

Re: Do you see the power?

Sod that, mate. I'll just carry on taking it for granted, if you don't mind No one takes it, it's what you are already. It takes you. There is no you without it. It takes you as a body form, but the you is only ever an energetic idea that thinks it is a person inside a body, but all that is false, ...

Re: What is the purpose of God?

So in my world view, there are no rights or wrongs. There are things which are good for the species and detrimental to it. Paedophilia is detrimental to the species and should therefore be prevented by those who understand this. Our ultimate aim is survival of the species. If we can maximise the be...

Re: SIR Roger Scruton

“Nothing upset me more than the award of Companion of Honour to Eric Hobsbawm in reward for a lifetime of unswerving loyalty to the Soviet Union” rued Roger Scruton, about the time in England “when honours and praise go only to people on the Left.” 20 years later, Scruton has been knighted on the Q...

Re: Philosophy & Food

This article would have been a whole lot more relevant to Philosophy if it had mentioned Epicureanism as well.

Re: What is truth?

I'm such a child, always lying, misquoting people, because I fear actually formulating a valid argument, that stands on it's own, something that I can feel secure supporting, as if I'm actually a capable fully functioning human being. I think I'll just kill myself, I'm such a loser, a poser, a moro...

Re: What is the structure of uncertainty?

I would take two ways of defining uncertainty. Logical and "emotional" uncertainty. To define, a logical analysis is a breaking down of an observation or conclusion into steps. Logical certainty would be a logical conclusion that one has not missed any logical steps in their analysis. Logical uncer...

Re: The task awaits us !

Let's get ging. If objective, universal morality exists – and (as I have explained in my other posts here) it does - then there is no reason why we ought not get busy constructing a science of Ethics (to parallel a science of Physics, and a science of Medicine) which would overlap and intersect wit...
