Re: "In the beginning God created ...."

What does that mean? And if I am not mistaken, Jesus was the central character of that event... I can explain to you, VVilliam. The defining belief of Christians is that Jesus died and was resurrected from death.If you do not believe in the Resurrection you are not a Christian. Resurrection takes p...

Re: The Bastardized Definition of 'Objectivity' and 'Mind'

What is a quale(plural qualia)?

Is it mental or is it physical? Or both?

Re: What could make morality objective?

No. This begs the question. There's evidence for the existence of brains. What evidence is there for the existence of 'brain-minds'? That's just the same old deluded claim-with-no-evidence. What and where is the abstract thing we call an idea? And what and where is the abstract thing we call memory...

Re: What could make morality objective?

I suggest the standard phulosophical description of subjectivity as 'dependence on the mind' and objectivity as 'independence from the mind' comes from the metaphysical delusion that there are two substances: mind and matter (body) - and that therefore this distinction between subjectivity and obje...

Re: "In the beginning God created ...."

If the philosopher understands disembodied consciousness is possible through having direct experience... I do not believe mystical experiences are caused directly by Supernatural Order. Mystical experiences are real and are caused by natural, causal process. Like when Jesus was tempted in the deser...

Re: the limits of fascism

Are you not interested... Well, here's something interesting, B. You may find it interesting as well. It seems the "Alt-Right" does exist...it's very small and hard to find, apparently, and it has no political or media clout, and is probably a threat to nobody and nothing, but it does exist, perhap...

Re: "In the beginning God created ...."

We are left with one thing certain. That any type of enquiry first has to have something real in which the enquiry itself can be expressed from. In that, the only real 'thing' is that which is making the enquiry. IF 'things' didn't exist in which to bounce off [make enquiry of] THEN what would one ...

Re: "In the beginning God created ...."

Like so many other sayings attributed to Jesus you should look beyond the literal meaning to the metaphorical meaning. The metaphorical meaning of the quote is that you should put universal welfare and love over tribal welfare and love. Jesus was fairly adamant: "Do not think that I have come to br...

Re: "In the beginning God created ...."

You are advocating a popularity contest. No. A comparison. Just look. You'll see. I won't have to make the argument. The facts will make it for me. According to the Bible Jesus said: “If you come to me but will not leave your family, you cannot be my follower. You must love me more than your father...

Re: Is morality objective or subjective?

Does anyone have any evidence for the existence of any so-called non-physical or abstract thing? I'm indignantly assured this question is ridiculous; that everyone knows such things exist; that philosophers have been talking about them for millennia, so of course they exist; that if they don't exis...

Re: "In the beginning God created ...."

Therefore it must be that which is experiencing which is a 'place' That which experiences in this reality of physical and mental aspects is indeed a place. That place is the brain-mind. However for all we can know there are other realities besides the one in which we are conversing. Our brain-minds...
