Re: The observer cannot be observed

Some people identify for instance with their profession, with their familial role, or racial category (more so now). Which is why when someone loses that particular role, for instance, their job, or their children leave home, they feel lost and in a sense don’t know who they are. I don’t know of an...

This is indisputable.

Re: Moral Supervenience

There are no moral facts - supervenient or otherwise - but only moral opinions held by people, some of whom think their own moral opinions are facts. For example, VA thinks 'homosexuality is morally wrong which is a moral fact'. Behold the twattish stupidity - and cruelty - of moral objectivism. Ye...

Re: Moral Supervenience

I've shown you patience. Asked nicely, and all you give me is this regurgitation. The most simple question has been ignored, and you seem to have no clue what you are saying Who the F..k should consider your patience? If you don't get the given clues, that is your business not my responsibility. I ...

Re: The observer cannot be observed

Tell me, what do you feel your identity is? I identify as a homo sapiens. I regard all subcategories of this as divisive and potentially dangerous the health of humanity, and suspect all who promote other forms of group identity, which is most often damaging, as failing to see the solution to ident...

All over the Islamic world there are also a bunch of racists asking the same sort of question about Christians.

Re: The observer cannot be observed

In saying The “observer is the observed” does not imply the “observer” can be observed. It just means there’s only OBSERVING and that this “observing” cannot then observe this observing....OK? No not okay at all. You are squirming. In future you need to say exactly what you mean. So really - WTF ar...

Re: Moral Supervenience

The principle of moral supervenience states that moral predicates (e.g., permissible, obligatory, forbidden, etc.), and hence moral facts attributing these predicates to various particular actions or action-types, supervene, or are defined by and depend, upon non-moral facts. It will clear up the c...

Re: Moral Supervenience

One example is the moral principle, "torturing babies for pleasure is morally wrong" What makes this a principle? and this moral principle supervenes on non-moral facts arising from being human being. So supervene is some for of verb. what does it actually mean? Obviously there are loads of moral p...

Re: The observer cannot be observed

That’s right, the observed cannot observe. There’s only Observing ..as the observer and the observed are inseparable one unitary action. The observer is the observed means the observed is a known concept known only within this immediate knowing non conceptual observing. A concept known does not kno...

Re: Moral Supervenience

Provide one example of a supposed moral fact, and show how it's 'supervenient upon' an actual, natural fact. Or are we supposed to just take your word for it that such things exist? Hint: if your example is 'people must breathe or they die - therefore it's morally wrong to prevent people from breat...

Re: Moral Supervenience

Note [to the moral-facts-deniers] the mentioned of 'moral facts'. I don't agree that non-natural facts (e.g., divine commands, Platonic truths) exist. Discuss?? My view is that you, yourself do not understand the relationship between moral, natural, non-natural facts. Supervenience, and what is mor...
