Re: Why Thinking Is Over-rated

Time only works for a single point in a single moment . Prevarication. What do you mean by "moment"? What do you mean by "time"? You should notice that while you are reading this very sentence some time passed from the time you started reading it till the time you got here. You didn't read it simul...

This is equivocation. Time is a social construct for measuring change, duration between events etc.

Re: Why Philosophical Realists are Dogmatic in their Views?

ONE is not an intellectual thing. It is merely asserting that the splitting of Reality into infinite parts becomes possible when you add time into the equation. If you take a step back and look at this outside of a single reference point, then all things are going on simultaneously [our intellectua...

Re: Recommendation for History of Western Philosophy?

To do good philosophy one has to search every nook and cranny related to a topic to ensure one do not miss out any critical points. To do good philosophy one first has to do some meta-philosophy. Ask the question "What is the point of making points?" You are going to be aimlessly wandering about th...

Re: safety v. compliance

As an individualist I do my thinking for myself. I may not know with certainty what to think, but I know when government statements sound like lies and when so-called “conspiracy theories” sound like they are more believable than the propaganda. What? Like all the individualists who are flat out co...

Is just the liar's paradox all over again.

Is choosing not to choose a choice; or not a choice?

Re: safety v. compliance

How am I to know that? You can't tell who doesn't have an ounce of critical thought? Who can't falsify their own reasoning? It's becuz morality is objective that Joe ought leave Stan be. Morality mandates you allow people to make poor decisions that will harm them in the long run? That's what assho...

Re: safety v. compliance

You have a choice. One of those choices is really dumb (here's reasons) - don't choose that one. The other choice is pretty good (here's reasons) - choose that one. The end. The rub: reasons sometimes aren't clear. Facts can be subverted. Best, then, to leave each be as he assesses and chooses. And...

Re: safety v. compliance

In light of all the success governments have been throughout history, do you really believe there is a problem that can only be solved by a government telling people what to do? Why do all individualist nutters keep insisting they are being told what to do? Unresolved issues with authority or somet...

Re: safety v. compliance

It's pointless arguing with the religiously minded. He "beleives" that COVID is some kind of conspiracy, He can't account for 2 million excess deaths in the time of pandemic so he blames it on a vaccine, because all he has to do it "beleive". Skeptic and veggie are flat earthers. :lol: :lol: :lol: ...

Re: safety v. compliance

What is it that correlates with organ failure in people infected with Covid? Is there anything else that has a stronger correlation? It was a facetious comment :roll: Correlation is not always a correlation. Sometimes it's just a terrible coincidence. There's positive and negative feedback loops in...

Now that's some hard bullshit. There's not a single verified fatality from COVID either.

They all die from organ failure.

Correlation is not causation. Nananananana!
