Re: What is Derrida Saying to Us?

As for philosophical understanding, I haven't read anything on this forum yet that I haven't already considered before. Almost the same for me, except for thoughts in heavily-laden theism. I don't outright reject their possible validity, much like I accept the tea-cup simile by Russel. But then aga...

Re: What is Derrida Saying to Us?

Why? I reject the 'law' of non-contradiction. (ETC.) (ETC) Atla, I found the only way to talk to TimeWaster is not to talk to him at all. After a brief exchange of futile brainstorming with TimeTaster (s/he stormed my brain in record time) I put TimeTeaser on Foe or iggie list. TimeTaser is a time ...

Re: What is the character of a woman?

Women are meek and mild, subservient creatures. Obviously you never met my mother-in-law. Or so we've been led to believe. Apparently no one had asked the Russians before they became communist... Actually, there were a lot of Russians that had been asked... a nation-wide survey had been conducted i...

I think this stuff you talk 'bout is too hard for us simple country-philosopher folks here.

What we like to do here is to ride our favourite hobby-horses and to incessantly talk about our own pet theories which patently make no sense and to call each other arsenokoitei once in a while.

1. Epidemiology: new virus outbreak, a mutated form of migrant rhesus monkey virus, carried in coconut husks by African Swallows to Europe, from where it will spread throughout the known world.

it's cheaper and easier to simply harness the energy raining down on us daily Politics may support this, and left leaning Marxist-Leninist liberal pinko pussies may support this but has anyone ever done a study on amount of harvested renewable power (wind, solar, tidal, biological (oxen and horse-p...

Re: tell the truth

Those who label themselves "progressive" are marxists hoping to instill more of Karl's philosophy into vulnerable heads, and paint those who reject communism as the radical reactionaries. Now, I'm goin' drink coffee, eat Ramen, and smoke cigarettes. Fuck you all & g'night Well, I am going to drink ...

Re: A Radical Cure: Hannah Arendt & Simone Weil on the Need for Roots

Our ultimate concern, being literally a matter of life and death for everything that lives on the planet including the oceans, is the planet itself. This is absolutely true, provided you and the followers of the quote outright reject the workings of the neo-Darwinist theory in practice. In my belie...

It all has to fit. Why? It has been resolved with the simple "yo momma sucks." K I S S. Keep it simple stupid. Anything else is too disruptive, biased, elitist and insulting to consider.

Re: Scientific Method and God

An elemental shape is a basic shape. If I say "elemental shape" do all trig mathemeticians know what shape(s) I am talking about? Or only art students / teachers know. Trigonometry studies basic shapes. Does trigonometry have more to do with science, or poetry, or philosophy? I'll let you decide th...

Fair enough. I still deem you to be disruptive, illogical, nonsensical, furthermore belligerent and nefarious.

From soon onward you are on my "iggie" list.
