Re: Silence, Reflection and the Golden Rule

I don't follow, but welcome discussion (we may have to agree to disagree). for full discloser(sp) - though an Atheist, i am more Judiac than Christian in viewpoint BTW conduct, and do tend to value Reciprocity Rule over Golden Rule in the real world.

Re: Silence, Reflection and the Golden Rule

If you think about it, the golden rule gives complete moral freedom while maintain morality as truly existing in itself. I don't follow, but welcome discussion (we may have to agree to disagree). for full discloser(sp) - though an Atheist, i am more Judiac than Christian in viewpoint BTW conduct, a...

Re: Silence, Reflection and the Golden Rule

Golden Rule is Golden - as long as you know who starts the fight and you are not the one starting it. then Reciprocy is the less Goldren rule (no fan of turn the cheek on enemies that start the fight - loving my enemy is bullshit as long as they start the fight). return the favor given you - as lon...

Re: Silence, Reflection and the Golden Rule

That golden rule provides the foundation for how we interact both with ourselves and other's and in these respects acts as a form of structuring both ourselves and other's by allowing us to do whatever we want. We are judged by the judgement's we apply, the structures we build are the structures th...

Re: Free Will As Determinism

Well I can reason pretty damned well, my logic is impeccable. And I never take anyones word on anything unless I fully understand it's truth factor. So you'll never see me parrot anything. As far as exceptionally bright, no, just a B average, so not especially. My IQ was closer to genius than avera...

Re: Scientific Method and God

You are beating around the bush again and introducing new perspective and contexts from the one I am asking from. And one perspective or context does not branch into another? If your argument is correct under one perspective or context, but is proven wrong by another....is it still correct? I would...

Re: Observation of the All in All.

If only a point existed, if would be viewed as a field considering a point alone its its own field, with this field having infinite limits as no limits. Hence a theoretical 1d point as pure being in which everything was contained, could only be observed as a field without limit. Good stuff! Classic...

Re: Observation of the All in All.

The point as outside everything with everything inside of it effectively observes being as a point itself ... Yes. the principal principle of existence is a dimensionless point. A location. The location is 'all around' everything else. This might sound like nonsense to most, but it just may be that...

Re: Scientific Method and God

Consider that: A circle is an elemental shape. A square is an elemental shape. The name square-circle suggests a compound of the two elements, like water is a compound of two elements. Because compounds need not resemble their constituent elements, folks may be looking at square-circles all the tim...

Re: Morality as Function and Form

You are beating around the bush again and avoiding my question, which is; My point is if you know A saw a mirage and insist it is a real oasis when you know there is no oasis at location X, would you agree with him there is a real oasis at location X? Would you agree? A mirage of an oasis is still ...

Re: Scientific Method and God

That is my point, a woman can be both young and old at the same time but not in the same perspective and senses. In terms of the same chronology and age, a young woman [20 years old] cannot be an old woman [80 years old]. Actually through picture and "memory" (as memory is composed of sensory knowl...

Re: Free Will As Determinism

The old: 'If you say you can or you say you can't, you're right'? Or your comment on my capabilities? If the latter, many have sold me short and lived to regret it. If the former, point well taken! I am selling you short...give me regret. You're not very bright are you? Are you bright?

Re: Failure of "I".

Oh...I thought you actually had an argument about the subject...not you trying to justify your life to me. The site wouldn't allow me to respond in the usual way, the message nesting was too deep. So I chose to only respond to your dumbassery. It seemed to be the most fun. ;-) It's no surprise that...

Re: Failure of "I".

If it was so self-less than why rub it everyone's face. Selflessness has nothing to do with it, though it could be a lesson. Oh that's novel. Then some shall never understand it! ;-) The USSR says the same thing "selflessly protecting you from the U.S. Of course, we each probably had submarines whi...
