Re: What is a right action?

Btw, morality-proper is not about deciding what is morally right before taking the actions. One can deliberate what right action to take, but that is not morality-proper. Morality-proper is about developing one's moral competence so that one's actions will flow spontaneously in accordance to the ve...

Re: What is a right action?

Yes we cannot eliminate the inherent evil potential that is "programmed" within ALL humans. This is why there is the inherent moral function to inhibit and modulate the inherent evil impulses. It is thus critical that we establish [verify and justified] what are the moral facts within the inherent ...

Re: Evolution Is Just an Emergent Property of the Action of Consciousness

There is no strong emergence. I discussed this here . I tend to agree that there is no Emergence. Even the classic example of Wetness being an emergent property of water molecules is a fraud. What is Wetness? Is there even really a Wetness Property? Can Wetness be measured? Humidity can be measured...

Re: What is a right action?

Generally ALL humans are "programmed" with the potential for evil and for good which both are necessary for survival under various conditions. In the absence of food, it may be necessary to be cannibals and eat the weakest, note the case of the plane crash in the Peruvian mountains. It is evident e...

Re: Things-in-Themselves Exist as Real?

"Since there is no strong emergence"?? You have no basis for this argument especially when you have such a low understanding of what is going on inside your brain. The question of strong emergence will also be resolved reasonably when the human brain is fully [or mostly] mapped. Is a mouse consciou...

Take a look at what he says in the context of Matthew 10. You'll see exactly who He's speaking about, and when, and why.
There is a gap between 10:20 and 10:21.

Re: The tree of knowledge

Ahan, so that is your interpretation since I cannot see anything about red guard and nazi there. No, the Nazis and the Red Guard are just examples of "unity." And not of any good "unity," obviously. I only refer to them to make the point that "unity" is not an automatic good, or an end-itself. One ...

Re: The tree of knowledge

I am talking about this: “Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I came to turn a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; nd a person’s enemies will be the members of h...

Re: The tree of knowledge

So you will be one of those who hate each other. You didn't read very carefully, I fear. The hatred's not coming from Christ, or from those who follow Him, to the world...it's coming the other way around. It always does. As you rightly say, Christ taught his followers, "Love your enemies, and do go...

Re: The tree of knowledge

The last blue part is really wrong from a God who is Love. It is Evil! Well, be very careful what you say. These are the words of Jesus Christ. When you propose to judge Him, you judge yourself. So you say the last part is good. So you will be one of those who hate each other. Is that good? If yes,...

Re: The tree of knowledge

How do you imagine it is possible for another person to ALSO know - what you YOURSELF believe you know about God? His offer of relationship is to everyone. Take Him up on it, and find out. For all you know, another person might believe in a different God to you, There are many false views of God, a...

Re: Things-in-Themselves Exist as Real?

That is the reason why you must not jump ahead to insist there is a "mind" of your definition. I would not predict the hard problem of consciousness will be resolved with certainty in the future, but it is promising and we are progressing steadily to understand much about how the components of our ...

Re: Continuous limit is discrete

Bahman, I came across a source which discusses much of what you seem to be attempting, seemingly with little to no clear resolve, you may find it here: https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/continuity/#1 Much if not most of it went over my head, but you may find it useful. But, I think you will find y...
