Re: Happiness

I'm posting this article again because it covers 'happiness' as it applies to philosophical achievement. A STATE OF SELFISH CONTENTMENT Somewhere during my pursuit of happiness, I was freed from many things, and many people, about which, there could possibly be made strong argument against my ‘givin...

Re: A Fable For Everyone

post_id=388243 time=1545256003 user_id=12397] Could you actually say, I wish I was never born! Re. The last sentence, yes. I am an antinatalist/antifrustrationist to the core of my being. Having said that, I am not without happiness. But the preference is still never being born. Bit late for that, ...

Re: A Fable For Everyone

Not quite a universal moral. I despise (perhaps an overly strong word) life, or rather, consciousness. Mind, I didn't jump for it. Someone else did, and I got stuck with it, like it or not. I personally find it very difficult to relate to people that see life, and most specifically consciousness, a...

Re: APOLLO, TRUE GOD?

Mortalsfool: It was thru a simple revealing to one humble man, calling him, with his self admitted ignorance, ‘the wisest man in Athens’ … Actually, this was neither simple nor humble. The oracle said that no one was wiser than Socrates, that is quite different than saying he was the wisest of men....

Re: Books are meaningless

Hi,-1-, I think I got it! Modifying your quote, "Cars are meaningless. Cars only gain meaning if some one drives them. ETC ETC"

INANE! Straight out of the Troll's handbook.

Re: APOLLO, TRUE GOD?

I can understand those who believed and prayed to Apollo then or now [?*] would have imputed the qualities of Apollo in their life. * I think it would be very rare for any one to belief in Apollo-the-God in our modern era. Veritas, I'm sometimes led to believe that, people in a philosophy forum, fe...

Re: What is Belief?

Agree. Age's claims are; 1. He is not a human being [by implication] 2. He does not have ANY beliefs. https://forum.philosophynow.org/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=25589 He implied being human and having beliefs is foolish, i.e. an ignorant fool. Something is obviously wrong with Age rather than us humans. [...

Re: Books are meaningless

Books are meaningless. Books only gain meaning if some one reads them. ETC ETC I'm not sure if I'm being too harsh or not, but your post asked for it since its stated so empirically. I seems like you are saying our society would have somehow been better off, if the Gutenberg printing press had neve...

Re: What is Belief?

I think most of us can agree beliefs are an inherent quality of the human race. For philosophy, I like the word innate. One of Marion Webster's definitions for innate is, "originating in or derived from the mind or the constitution of the intellect rather than from experience". I say this, because m...

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

Is there something unimaginable to you now? Okay, because there is no doubt to the question IF there is some Thing that created all that exists, but WHAT is the name that we want to give to that Thing that created all that exists. Once that is agreed upon, then discovering the purpose for existence...

Re: What is Belief?

Recently I have this ridiculous encounter with 'Age' where he claimed; ' I do NOT have any Beliefs '. I BELIEVE the above statement from Age is delusional. I have argued the faculty of believing and its resulting beliefs are inherent within all human beings. uch thing as beliefs? Personally I belie...

Re: APOLLO, TRUE GOD?

Fair enough, though I do joke alot. Knowing thyself is good. But what does nothing in excess have to do with enlightenment? I smoke excessively, and still feel fairly enlightened on my chances of dying, which are 100%. Ahhh yes Dalek, you may well know yourself , but it doesn't take enlightenment t...

Re: APOLLO, TRUE GOD?

Zeiss was head God of the Greeks, not Apollo. And choosing one myth to have priority over any other random story is just cherrypicking, and naive anyway. Fuck, why not Sauron out of LOTR. Just as real as Apollo Look. Believing anything out of any book is just silly. And that includes any scripture....
