Re: To whom and why is god necessary for morality?

have you perhaps misapprehended something? Quite possibly, my apologies if so. Religious autocrats and ill-educated/indoctrinated subjects are not exclusive to Islam, it seemed unfair to me that you should single them out. Is that what it was! I understand. I should have included 'communist' autocr...

Re: Meanwhile...

I disagree. Colours are just one sort of sensation. Throw in taste, touch, smell, sound and any emotional or intellectual state; any personal experience you care to consider. If it is not those that you are trying to make meaningful, logical, reasonable and sensible, what are you talking about? Wha...

Re: Condition of women is a measure of morality

Also pets and other animals Well, I don't think personality of pets and animals force human to control them, beat them, subjugate them, sexually and emotionally torture, like that of women. Women have greater ability to test men's and society's morality and intelligence. I am sorry, but are you com...

Re: Meanwhile...

Seeing a range of colors has absolutely NOTHING whatsoever to do with what is meaningful, logical, , reasonable , and sensible . I disagree. Colours are just one sort of sensation.

This is because you do NOT want to SEE the Truth of things. You are AFRAID of what this would REVEAL about 'you', specifically.
lol
So, ACTUALLY some times you do ACTUALLY read, what you call, "shouty" posts.
Only one liners

Re: L'Age B'Or encore.

I KNOW I AM. I do this on PURPOSE NOW so that you will NEVER SEE that what I am saying and pointing out about 'you' is thee ACTUAL Truth of things, and of which you could NEVER even refute. This is because it is OBVIOUSLY just a plain irrefutable FACT. You are STILL being a bit shouty. I never read...

Re: The Evolution of Religion

Your comments are groundless. All comments are groundless because they are purely objective, NO. All comments are grounded in the subject, obviously. None are objective. Comments are just reflections of some other thing. and have no real ground on which to stand in and of themselves. Have you ever ...

Re: L'Age B'Or encore.

I might NOT be shouting at all. I might just be, quietly, emphasizing, and doing it in another way of the four or five ways that I use to emphasize. You would obviously have to LOOK AT a post FIRST, before you could make the assumption/interpretation, "it is a shouty post". If you are just looking ...

Re: L'Age B'Or encore.

Just as I was implying, if you decided to CLARIFY with me first, then you will SHOW that you are actually trying to understand what I am communicating, to you, and then you will have learned some thing. Why did you make the assumption that I was "getting so hysterical"? Now, you have made the other...

Re: What is the stupidest thing Trump has said?

I think I can see what is happening with Trump; he might well be dyslexic. People are too stupid to understand that presidents read their speeches off teleprompters. He obviously improvises all of his, filling up what would otherwise be complete silence with anything that comes into his head. How t...

Re: The Evolution of Religion

DAM has it right. Political power either invents a religion to serve its own ends, or political power hi-jacks an existing religion for the same purpose. Religion is a system of political power. What planet do you come from? You have the cart before the horse. You think that because what 'religion'...

Re: Interesting to see how this forum devolved into practicing cannibalism

That statement self-contradicts. No it is not. Sure it does. If you know it to be true, then it's false...because you know it to be true, which means there's a truth. If you don't know it to be true, then it's just an intuition you happen to have, and may well be false, since you don't have reason ...

Any system can be exploited for power. Academia. Philosophy. Science. Take your pick.

Knowledge is power. Knowing how to game systems - even more so!
And it all stems from religion.
