Re: First Believe, Then Understand.

I can't believe someone wrote this as a true assessment. I can't understand how it could be true.

Re: I dont fully understand how to apply the second step of the socratic method, PLEASE HELP!

Your personal life's purpose is not to be discovered by the Socratic Method. Socratic Method is a tool for finding principle truths, not personal purpose. Your personal purpose is important to know, and I suggest you figure it out for your sake. But Socrates would have more asked what is the good, ...

Re: What do men and women actually really want from each other?

If the psychosocial demands of people were immutable, then the government would not waste so much time encouraging the demand to be instructed. I.e. modern schooling. This is true, but do people learn anything before a post-secondary education? In my opinion they learn the letters of the alphabet, ...

Re: gaffo

When a life starts, and when personhood is established are SOCIALLY defined categories. Unless you want to say that there is nothing to distinguish a virus from an elephant because they are all "life", you will have to accept that individual lives have a beginning and an end. No. Calling a child an...

Re: Does a pregnant woman carry a human being/person or just 'life'/meat?

-1-, Veggie suffers from chronic emotional impulsivity and severe emotional lability. This is why she loses her temper all the time on the forum and blurts out so many disgusting expletive-laden posts (most of them are enough to make a sailor blush!). I think she has a congenital frontal lobe disor...

Re: gaffo

"e plurs unim(sp). is a good thing pregmatically, and something i support - Why do you support it? It means "out of many, one". This is a complete non sequitur. It means nothing in and by itself. Out of many whats? One what? Or one who? What the fuck does this mean? It has no meaning, because it ma...

Re: gaffo

until all of America ends up "brown-coloured" with an average IQ of 86. (Although it is very vulgar and absolutely not PC for me to actually say this , it is what a SHIT LOAD of native,white European Americans are actually very worried about right now !)

Re: gaffo

Usual ignorance. The biological machinery for life is in place at conception. The timeline is therefore arbitrary. Personhood is when the baby is born and named. The biological machinery for life is in place always, and the only time the biological machinery was started was the formation of the fir...

I don't know why I bother--so I won't :cry:
You're right. You are mixing up your own emotional responses by considering them as logical arguments. And when you are shown that the two are separate and different, then you collapse.

Re: Does a pregnant woman carry a human being/person or just 'life'/meat?

Shallow thinking. Completely ridiculous and unenforceable (from both perspectives). A foetus is not dependent on the male for it's survival. As far as nature is concerned, after impregnation the male's job is done (and nature doesn't give a flying fuck about human opinions or habits). Why don't you...

Re: Evolutionary reason for consciousness?

Eventually every person, reasonable or not, smart or stupid, fat or lean, old or young, rich or poor, realizes that Skepdick is precisely that. He is impossible. Not to argue with; he is just plain impossible. A real waste of humanity. His parents now think he'd be lucky to amount to nothing. But to...
