Re: Are philosophers psychopaths?

Nowadays, philosophy serves the very useful purpose of thought-exercises for lay-people. So practicing logic/thought? Learn to program! It's free. It's useful. You get instant feedback when you make errors e.g. you get to iterate much faster than if you were to converse with a human. A lot of philo...

Re: Are philosophers psychopaths?

Indeed. So many people have been led to believe that philosophy is useless. The term itself has a stigma attached to it now-a-days.... Sad... Orwellian... Machiavellian... Such is what happens when one draws conclusions about all of philosophy based upon inadequate knowledge. On the other hand - ph...

Re: Are philosophers psychopaths?

A psychopath doesn't care about others. That's what makes them what they are. Many philosophers care about others. Many philosophers are not psychopaths. I think psychopathy is more common among people than what we're told. This includes philosophers as well, there is no difference here. If I had t...

Re: Are philosophers psychopaths?

Yes, it actually does change it. You put the word "particular" in quotes, which is a statement that this problem exists in a single philosopher, as opposed to being pervasive throughout the discipline. How dumb can you be not to understand what you have written? No it doesn't, she said 'a philosoph...

Re: Subjective morality

Stop making any more humans! For ever 1 death (death comes to all, even in utopia) human population is allowed to increase by 1. Get equal to or below this rate, and the over-population will be solved. The thing is, in most of the westernized cultures, birthrate is declining. In third-world countri...

Re: Subjective morality

A liberal, peaceful and safe (in all aspects of life, including welfare) society should become the standard of the world. Instead, most of the world is either in war, under authoritarian rule, over-populated/crowded or under pressure from other sources of infectious authoritarian pro-war anti-peace...

Re: Subjective morality

But a dystopian hell - like our current world - has poor healthcare, sanitation problems, education system collapses as well - combined with destruction of commerce and infrastructure and corrupt, sadistic narccissistic leaderships. I definitely prefer the peaceful utopian society above this world!...

Re: Subjective morality

It may be argued that some peaceful Utopia would breed very substandard men who were fat, lazy, and apathetic. So be it. If fat, lazy and apathetic men are the only side-effects of a peaceful utopian society, then I'm willing to take that side-effect. The alternatives (all of them) are far worse an...

Subjective morality

Morality is subjective but this subjectivity should not limit a true moral society. Here I will argue in favor of a moral just society with as much personal/individual liberty as practically possible. Morality in theory: If life is only about survival - and gaining more and more power is essential t...

Re: Re:

So belief in logic is better than belief in a deity? OK. So logic is the authority you bow to? That is another way of saying logic is your God. I thought a deity is defined as an omniscient, omnibenevolent, omnipotent (?) being. By these standards, God does not equal to logic, and logic does not eq...

Re: Re:

That's right. I believe in the right to speak against religion/god(s), because nobody knows if God exists or not and therefore it would make no sense to ban blasphemy, as we have no evidence of God's existence. A theist can no more provide you with evidence for God's existence, than you can provide...

Re:

"I was morally, ethically and logically/philosophically entirely wrong about everything I wrote." Now you're tiltin' way over to the other side. Just stop a moment and 'think'. Stop reacting.

Re: Pro-blasphemy law protesters deserve death penalty!

Are you TRYING TO back up and support this statement that "humans are naturally evil" by using 'evidence' such as coming across as being "naturally" evil yourself, especially with statements like this: "Problem is, I'm getting angry at the angry mob, wherever it may be. I hate the angry mob and I d...

Actually, Philosopher, if you can just avoid postin' hyperbolic nonsense like this...

Nobody should be allowed to say "There should be blasphemy laws". It should be a capital crime to say any such things!

...you'd go far here.
I will do my best to avoid such nonsense from now on.
