Re: Is God necessary for morality?

I almost died one day due to a heart attack by reading the incredibly stupoid posts here by incredibly stupid people. Well that was a stupid thing to do wasn’t it. Why would you be so stupid as to do something like that? Finally I can agree on something with someone on this laughing stock of philos...

Re: Is God necessary for morality?

Straw man! The authority we need and should aim for is neither supernatural nor human dictator , but is the authority of reason with universality of reason. Universality of reason must be accomplished by quality education for all, which in turn requires basically happy living standards for all. Rea...

Re: Is God necessary for morality?

Actually, that is the impossibility that we can rule out with absolute certainty, mathematically. An infinitely regressed chain of causes has no starting point. And that makes it certain that if such a thing were posited it never started. It was never started, because it has gone on since time infi...

Re: Is God necessary for morality?

If you go say 100 numbers a day each day then in inifinite number of days you can cover the entire length of the number progression This is false because even with an infinite number of days you would still never get to the end And so there is no such thing as the end of infinity because if there w...

Re: Is God necessary for morality?

A divinity or other incontrovertible authority such as a dictator or a dictatorial regime is still necessary when there is no democracy. For democracy to bite the electorate has to be sufficiently educated to resist inefficient or immoral politicians. What you wrote is a bit of a circular reasoning...

Re: To whom and why is god necessary for morality?

Leaving aside the question of whether Jesus really existed (he didn't), does anything he said amount to any more than 'be nice to people'? I mean, it's a great message, but do you need the son of god to convince you? At the time of the life of the alleged Jesus you did need to be the son of god (or...

Re: UPLOADED

To me the poem made sense. It just reads tiresome. My brain got tired two lines into the poem. It is a good poem, though, if you like this style and content. Art is not to be judged. I wouldn't read or write a poem like this, but I don't think it's a hodge-podge of words. It does have a meaning, eve...

Re: Is God necessary for morality?

{1}Really there are only two things one has to know: firstly, that time is linear, not cyclical; and that's empirically evident, so that part's easy. The second thing you need to know is the idea of causality...and of chains of cause and effect. Again, the evidence of the existence of such is empir...

Re: Democracy

The most liberal progressive democracies have a very short life. 100 % of all liberal progressive democracies end up being right wing populist dictatorships. This is a statement of fact. A false fact, in fact. You name your source, or the statistic you found this in, and we believe you. Until then,...

Re: Free agent cannot be created

What is it with most people on this forum not knowing the difference between themselves and others? Of course I realise you are completely full of shit. The ontological determinism or non-determinism of reality is epistemically non-determinable because superdeterminism is currently untestable/unfal...

Dear Diary Moment 6/18/2020: I think one of the main log jams I’ve had as concerns Deleuze and Guatarri’s (via Artaud (Body w/o Organs (the BwO (is my failure to recognize what they meant by “body”.

Re: Existence

Barbara Smoker probes why there is something rather than nothing. http://philosophynow.org/issues/102/Existence So there is this "thing" that has complete knowledge why there is something and not nothing. All we have to do to make the "thing" spit out the knowledge and confess the truth, is to prob...
