Re: Contradiction Between Aristotelian Logic and Newtonian Physics

"For every reaction there is an equal and opposite reaction" which necessitates P = -P. However the principle of non contradiction states P =/= -P. A contradiction between Newtonian physics and Aristotelian logic occurs. The opposite of P is P in another direction. The -P is illicit. Aristotle didn...

Re: Impossibility.

Ignorance of the moral must be excusable. As it is wholly unjust to charge someone with a guilt about which they know nothing. Only the posative law does so for expedience. Ergo, the concept of the moral can not be moral, because when we don't known of it we are blameless. I’m an intelligent fellow...

Re: Impossibility.

just my two cents, but I'm blessed with some basic, but rock solid morals, and very glad to have them. and I do not understand your question...perhaps because of the saying above. I just can't imagine it otherwise, and again, very glad of this as well. Well, say in the case of a whole tribal people...

Ignorance is no defence under the law. It can be easily feigned.

Why is the thread called "impossibility"?
Good point. However, that's a reason of expediance or posative law as distinguished from morality proper.

In principle it could be overcome with, eg, brain scans.

Re: The evil of superiority.

So subjective Evil is meaningless. Shit happens then you die. You're just admitting you're bellow the responsibility to think. I love to bellow in the morning. It gets the yah yahs out. Something boring and common as hell. Why don't you run along and try to think about what "evil" might mean to you...

Re: The evil of superiority.

would you call an accident, causing great harm, evil? Say a person injured by a sink hole? What about a small child stabbing you with a knife? Is that evil? It is for the one it happens to.

I think you might want to do more than that.
Great harm can come on many guises, none of which you would necessarily call evil.
Why?

Re: The evil of superiority.

So you've already contradicted yourself. Alcohol is very harmful. You are not really saying anything here. There's lots that is harmful that is also good. Is evil more than an adjective? Let's take the title of the post as an unproven assertion, or provocation to an investigation. So what is "evil"...

Re: The evil of superiority.

I do, I take evil to mean very harmful. Though, it's not obvious to whom. If it isn't apparent who evil harms, then it is at most relative. If evil is relative, then this means that what is evil to some is good to others. In which case, evil is not an absolute concept. Case in point: Slavery is evi...
