Re: Bias Against Transgenders

Nick_A You are saying that instead of relying on the senses, you relied on other peoples' and your own intuition? Indeed it may be meaningless to describe spirit killing to someone who doesn't understand what you mean by the spirit. I just wonder that if you described exactly what you meant whether ...

Re: Bias Against Transgenders

Nick_A It is nonsense for a secularism which maintains there is no above and below. There is just existence in the world revealed by our senses so opposes whatever questions this blind belief. How did you come about the knowledge of what lies past our senses? We can only know that our senses are lim...

Re: Is A Universal Language Possible?

Logik No actually, I was consciously trying to avoid playing the blame game because I don't care. I was happy to share around some blame so that you might be more willing to accept your share. Since whether or not you could improve yourself is not something I care about, I have decided to try to tak...

Re: Bias Against Transgenders

Nick_A I think you are taking Plato's cave to mean something other than what was intended. The allegory is really promoting philosophical knowledge as being more fundamentally true than what is gained through the senses and this is of course among some other things. What philosophical knowledge is b...

Re: Is A Universal Language Possible?

Logik I'm tired of this kind of talk, this is going nowhere. I could have made a better effort to rectify the misunderstanding, you could have made a better effort to read what I was saying and not jump to conclusions, we're both making things more difficult than it has to be, I think we both want t...

Re: Bias Against Transgenders

Nick_A I don't think I would be able to satisfy Jacob Needleman's challenge of being able to explain your ideas back to you in a way that you'd be able to think are correct. I am not averse to talking about this topic with you but ultimately I am set against your ways of talking about the "society o...

Re: Is A Universal Language Possible?

Logik
Read the long post, acknowledge the mistakes of the past, show intent to see them not happen again or don't talk to me again. I won't play any more games with you.

Re: Is A Universal Language Possible?

Logik While I admire your desire to turn everything into an argument until you admit the problems of the past and show desire to ensure they don't happen again then I can't really think anything other than the past repeating itself will occur. Which is to say, my words will be ignored or misconstrue...

Re: Is A Universal Language Possible?

Logik The question was supposed to be rhetorical. I can't pretend that which I am not aware of will be incorporated into my understanding, whether this has actually caused any problems or not we'll see but only when I can think that you will actually make the effort to understand what I am saying be...

Re: Bias Against Transgenders

Nick_A I tried googling psychological secularism, is it your own personal term? Couldn't find anything. However, I will say that I only accept earthly influences and the mechanics of the human mind and the various structures which operate within our society like capitalism, democracy and so on. I do...

Re: Is A Universal Language Possible?

I am acting like utility is subjective. But our tools (logic) are the same. And you are abusing them. Umm, why discuss this with you? You continually call me a mental invalid who has no idea what he's talking about while I just gave you a detailed post about how you were never arguing against a pos...

Re: Bias Against Transgenders

Nick_A I still don't really understand, what is universalism? You are saying that secularists are concerned with what a man does but don't you also consider yourself a pragmatist? My understanding of a secularist is someone who believes in the separation of church and state but let's forget that, ac...

Re: Is A Universal Language Possible?

Did you just take a 3k word post that took about one hour to make, quote 12 words which you thought you could easily refute and ignored the rest? Did you just jump to another conclusion? I am dismantling your post piecemeal. I'll get to the rest on my own time. But now that you feel "disrespected' ...

Re: Bias Against Transgenders

I could not give a rat's posterior about your virtue. Probably best to deal with what I actually said than imaginings. My point was that you ignored Nick's continued attacks against a disempowered group that went far beyond the issue of fairness raised in the OP. Then you worry about a broad brush ...
