Re: A ROLE MODEL FOR WOMEN

There is no reason to accuse anyone of anything. I believe in ideals. I can wonder what the ideal Man is and realize that it isn't me. It inspires humility and the desire to better oneself. The point is that I may not know what the ideal Man is but it doesn't stop me from contemplating what it is a...

Re: MUSLIM SENATORS IN THE US...WTF !

... Yes, Know that. The problem I have with Muslims is that they believe Islam is the only true religion. They believe that all other religions are false. This, in itself, is not too different from most religions. Where you find the difference, however, is that Islam teaches all other religions and...

Re: "THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS SOCIETY" (Margaret Thatcher, 1987)

And how do I weigh off, say, my child's desire for new sneakers against the call of others to donate to cancer research? Immanuel, Here is a very basic thought experiment, I created it because (unlike most thought experiments in philosophy/Ethics) it is inspired by a real-life situation I actually ...

Re: A ROLE MODEL FOR WOMEN

Feminism set a very bad example for women. The instigators of the movement in the academy were very bitter and twisted, screwed up human beings.And as for the countless reams of gender feminist theory they produced, the verdict of empirical science today is that it was all BULLSHIT, that is, gender...

Re: "THERE@S NO SUCH THING AS SOCIETY" (Margaret Thatcher, 1987)

I live in a house...it's my house...I paid for it...I pay for its upkeep...it's my house. Yep, good. But the personal side of the question returns: in ethics, how do we draw the boundaries between people we owe an ethical duty, and those who are outside of it? Dear Immanuel, The only people we can ...

Re: RE: TELLING HOLMES WHY SUBJECTIVE MORALITY IS NONSENSE

Fair enough. I think the great danger of moral objectivism is that people can think their own moral opinions are facts and therefore undeniable. It leads to inquisitions and persecutions, abortion practitioners being murdered, homosexuals being thrown off tall buildings, and so on. Would it be fair...

Re: "NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS", HERE'S THE SIMPLE TRUTH ABOUT ABORTION

Dachsund If you disagree, please focus on one moral claim - one example of what you think is a moral fact - and show why it describes a feature of reality correctly, independent of judgement, belief or opinion, without begging the question, and without appealing to intuition - which also begs the q...

Re: Pete

"Your argument seems to be: people don't want to die, so killing people is morally wrong." Well, if 'morality' is subjective, has no grounding in reality, is just consensus or is just majority-determined: then 'morality' literally is what the majority sez it is, yeah? If the majority choose to resp...

Re: "NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS", HERE'S THE SIMPLE TRUTH ABOUT ABORTION

Instead, moral assertions express value-judgements, which are subjective. A thing's value is determined by its relationship to some end, purpose, goal, or objective. If a thing supports, furthers, or favors some particular end or purpose it has a positive value, such as good or right. If thing unde...

Re: FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION

Dear Admin/Moderators, I would just like to say that I am impressed with the respect you demonstrate on this forum for the "right" to freedom of expression. To explain.
