Re: I'm a Theist

How many times do 'you' have to be told that if God exists or not, this is testable, thus verifiable AND falsifiable, BEFORE you can comprehend this FACT? And your notion of nature is very churchy. How Christian of you to believe that the term god is related to the human intellect. Or how dumb........

Re: I'm a Theist

Do you believe love exists? If yes then "belief" is a nonsensical application to the term god. It contradicts. Love exists as an emotion that can be empirically inferred via structure of the brain, the chemicals, the human behavior, etc. Love is a justified true belief. Belief [personal conviction ...

Re: I'm a Theist

[some wierd assumption that religious folk even understand the topic. Please show some proof they actually do understand the topic So your "I don't believe" is predicated on what exactly? Some fool who has no clue? Does that make you even intelligent? A topic can be both factual and not understory d...

Re: I'm a Theist

Ok so you want to theologicalize nature intellectually and narrcisistically. My degree is theology btw it's self deluding behavioralism. I poke a sea anenome it reacts predictibly. Since you need predictibity I ask what is love you predictibly state neurology. Of course every thought including your ...

Re: My computer is sentient, you can not deny it!

Yes it is. So now we are locked into a small singular region the intellect, of a particular type of brain homo sapien using a communication system writing that works only in that region we have about what 95% of the brain n unaccounted for. Further more the intellect rests upon about 4.5 billion yea...

Re: My computer is sentient, you can not deny it!

Your statement is a physiological process like a sea anenome you poke at it and it responds predictibly physiologically. Thus your responsibility new is simply reactive behavioralism. Predictibly. It's not actually any thinking involved beyound itself simple base behavioralism.

Re: I'm a Theist

So do you still believe God exists as real? Do you believe love exists? If yes then "belief" is a nonsensical application to the term god. It contradicts. Love exists as an emotion that can be empirically inferred via structure of the brain, the chemicals, the human behavior, etc. Love is a justifi...

Re: I'm a Theist

More specifically a Lutheran but I listen to a lot of Atheist programs and call-in shows. Mostly I agree with the Atheist as they demolish the Theist who tries to prove the existence of God. I look at the old testament as parabel since Jesus had to learn the practice somewhere. So do you still beli...

Re: My computer is sentient, you can not deny it!

What if I say a PC becomes conscious the moment you connect it with a monitor and it displays some content. Then I can say, look, there it is its qualia right there on the display, that's what it thinks, that's what it feels. It does not feel like we do in terms of pain and desire, but in terms of ...

Re: A Philosophical Illumination or A Delusion?

The philosopher who forgot to breathe. Delusion...... In a sense some of of his sharper ideas are already expressed in Emerson and nothing new there. I will say this though, Nietzches delusion is far far better than most folks intellectualized illusions. And that's why we still talk about him. Yes h...
