Re: Do you believe in miracles?

It is no co-incidence that the more we understand science, the instances of reported miracles has declined. We understand the foundations of the natural numbers completely. Still, inexplicable truths are a fundamental part of true arithmetic. No amount of better understanding of arithmetic will mak...

Re: The Democrat Party Hates America

Here's the magic of the Milton Freidman economic transformation. In the last 45 years, the poor are poorer, the rich are richer; job security has been replaced by the zero hours gig economy, inequality is massive. Home ownership has risen and fallen way out of the reach of young people, who toil in ...

Re: Conspiracy Theories and Narcissism.

There are a few on-going conversations here where this interview , and the extremely important issues discussed in it, could be posted for general review. It will suffice to post it here. Lydia Brimelow talks about the extreme consequences of the attacks -- open and concerted -- designed to destroy...

It is my view that Professor Errol Briwn has had all to say on the subject that is of relevance....

And has truly appraoched the subject with all the seriousness it deserves.

Re: What is Fact is Intersubjective

3 The whole point of objectivity and facts - what we mean when we talk about them - is that facts are independent from beliefs, judgements and opinions - individual or collective/consensus. For example, the fact that the universe began billions of years ago has nothing to do with intersubjective co...

Re: Do you believe in miracles?

A miracles is by definition an instance where the laws of nature are transgressed. It is no co-incidence that the more we understand science, the instances of reported miracles has declined. In Hume's time miracles seemed to be reported as happening everyday. When anyone tells me, that he saw a dead...

Re: My Hope

There is an aspect to reality that must inspire the great religious traditions. That I accept. I don't know what it is or much more than there is uncertainty and movement in the mind and the universe. However, I cannot admire a "heavenly father" who drowns his "children". If the...

Re: Trump

This pretty much explains everything about Trump. I do not align myself with Scaramucci politically, but he's admirable for speaking the truth as he sees it. I've always been puzzled by how Trump was ever in the running for POTUS, but the answer is all here. How Trump does it, and exactly why Trump ...

Re: The USA and Israel

But yes, it makes logical sense that sociopaths who want to appear 'good' would feel nothing for the slow torture of babies and toddlers. There are a lot of child-haters out there. Such a shame, because children are the most brilliant and awe-inspiring beings in the universe. So why is Israel killi...

Re: The USA and Israel

Netanyahu has got to go or else become realistic, if Israel wants any form of long-lasting peace. His latest proposal for post-10/7-invasion arrangements is simply kicking the can further down the road and worse, it's just going to incite Gazans. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/netanyahu-s-day...
