Re: Kant: "The Universe Has a Beginning is False"

How to resolve the above impasse; In each of these antinomial conflicts, reason finds itself at an impasse. Satisfying the demands placed by our rational capacity to think beyond experience, the thesis arguments offer what appears to be a satisfying resting-place for explanation. The antithesis cha...

Re: God and COVID-19

After reading about some of the horror stories going on in New York and other places in the world from COVID-19 right now--people drowning in their own blood-filled lungs, medical personnel getting sick while trying to help others--it really makes me wonder what kind of "god" presides over such hor...

Re: Observation or undergoing, two sides of an "absolute"

You are exsesivly abstract. Or, merely inteligable, rather than reasonable. The accuser is the accused: you are drawing from your own nature. Stick to content, not ad hominem - once ad hominem starts I know they have nothing left. Belief in god is unreasonable : thus unreasonableness begins there. ...

Re: Observation or undergoing, two sides of an "absolute"

The division of "hard sciences" from the rest is historical. Based on the doctrine of werfrei or value-free philosophy or science, the so called " natural sciences." It affected a split. Judgments about good and bad were removed from the sphere of knowledge or the scientific fact. This doesn't work...

Re: Observation or undergoing, two sides of an "absolute"

The period called the Enlightenment consisted in European science coming to take over the world after hundreds of years of development and propaganda in European countries. Its final stage was the claim of factual knowledge as distinguished from wisdom or values. The basis of your claim. There neve...

Re: The emergence of expeirnce

Western science is right to some extent. They miss mind however. The mind to see right-side-up instead of upside-down. "Belief" is the inversion factor such to ever believe down is up, up is down, wrong is right, right is wrong. Thus expect "believers" to be approaching, near, or at: upside-down wa...

Re: Observation or undergoing, two sides of an "absolute"

The power of, now planetary, European science religion is seemingly due to the general belief, not held by many individuals, that the land or country must survive. Even at the cost of the esse delendum, or, the others are to be obliterated. I don't see the connection to anything European: one can j...

Re: The emergence of expeirnce

You cannot use weight as a unit because it changes. Mass changes, not weight. Western science has that upside-down. Weight is fixed as the constituency of the "gravitating" body itself, whereas mass is only relative to the body to which it is accelerating. Gravity is a one-body acceleration as in t...

Re: People want to be their own gods. Is that good or evil?

People want to be their own gods. Is that good or evil? The real Original Sin, then and today, to most Christians, is based on this quote. “For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil" (Gen. 3:5). The Original sin ...

Re: The emergence of expeirnce

Mass is not analogous to weight in motion. Weight is a property of something massive. Other way around: weight precedes mass, weight moves to produce "mass" but is only relativistic mass, not absolute. Mass is relatively meaningless. Modern-day stellar evolution is similarly precisely backwards as ...

Re: Trump Derangement Syndrome is Real - A Confession

The root of it is deep. We are in a war between 'believer' and 'unbeliever'. The hatred for Donald Trump is solely the employment of political Islamic jihad. The House of Islam infiltrates/infects non-Muslim nations from within by weaponizing them against the citizens of the same: utilizing the reso...

Re: Knowledge is Dynamic

This expansion and contraction necessitates knowledge as circular where what has been known in previous times will eventually be revealed again in future times. An example of this would be that Rome was the height of information. It dissolved into the dark ages with less information. It steadily in...

Re: 90/100 are political

The few who can think do bear great responsibility: the people who can't think can't stand the one who can and the hatred grows so great they imagine naught but cutting other people's heads off. That is the mark of intolerance: can not stand others using their head so simply remove the head. Such i...
