Re: What is philosophy?

Thanks for your reactions but I still don't see any contributions at all that are indicative of cognitive instead of emotive orientation. The challenge is for people who claim to know what is philosophy to bring forth what they know from their very own personal thinking with their own mental cogniti...

Re: What is philosophy?

Thanks for your reactions, though they don't add to the concept of what is philosophy, and we are here all keen on talking about philosophical matters. You see, today's scientists take to bashing philosophy as irrelevant altogether. But I guess you and I we know better, namely, that they are not see...

What is philosophy?

Here is my idea on what is philosophy:

Philosophy is the continuous unending search by reasoning for the programming that exists or might exist or should exist in everything.

What about you colleagues here in this net forum?

Here ya go: https://forum.philosophynow.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=19209&p=258630&hilit=how+to+prove+god+exists#p258630 Sorry, but that link does not lead to any thread on How to prove God exists. So, at this point in time, I still have not seen my thread which was for me a way to find out whether the...

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

They exist in the realm of eternal values! But they also go into brawls like with Buddhist monks fighting over who have control of the money in their monastery. So, they are no different from you and me, and you just say something painful to their eternal values realm, like, "Man, your fly is not zi...

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

Well.. yeah I was wondering about that. Maybe the fall from innocence refers to the advent of the hallucination of the seperate "I". According to my very rudimentary research, the separate "I" roughly emerged around the 2nd millenium BC, in several cultures, but maybe even sooner? I tend to believe...

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

At the risk of hypocrisy, I and my family, we don't subscribe to sexual liberalities of all kinds, period. That is our choice, period. I and my family we stick to conservative traditional Christian morality. But when it comes to philosophy, I am into what I might call free thought and free behavior,...

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

It's not about being acceptable or not acceptable, it's a fact that all values are created by humans, societies, religions, dictatorships, people in power etc. The universe doesn't care, so making up values and trying to agree on them was overall still the best attempt to avoid total chaos. So it b...

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

Dear colleagues here, this is a philosophy forum, so we want to be really into philosophy. Now, at no time in the history of mankind, does man know so much of the physical reality, which is in the realm of science. Scientists judge everything and they claim to be off-limits to any other humans judgi...

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

Dear Belinda and all posters advocating eternal values:

Your advocacy against prostitution is because it is contrary to an eternal value, scil. prostitution is evil, period.

Now, let us all think about whether there is an eternal value which is evil, namely, answer this question:

Does evil exist?

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

Okay, everyone here, let us do philosophy as behooves this website, https://forum.philosophynow.org. Now, from my stock knowledge, philosophy is the endless search by reasoning for the programming that exists or might exist or should exist in everything.* So, we ask ourselves, in regard to the exist...

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

From Dontaskme "Are you suggesting that if the earth were destroyed, eternal values as universal truths would no longer exist?" From Yrger If the earth were destroyed we would not be anymore existing, so no need at all for us to ask the question about eternal values existing - as we don't exist, ho...
