Re: If God Exists, Is It Our God?

Replace “humanity” by “porpoises” or “cocker spaniels” in the topic re-titling, and the new being may not care about the fate of humanity. I thought this was the most interesting part of your opening post. There is a very strong bias to see ourselves, humans, as the center of everything, and this i...

Re: An Artist's Dilemma

Interesting.... Perhaps this is relevant. I once heard the author Salman Rushdie make this comment in an interview. He said when a writer is young, the tendency is to measure one's work against that of other writers, to compete, to compare. He said that as a writer matures, these comparisons fade aw...

Please redirect all discussion of The Typist Circus to this wonderful new thread that Nikolai has kindly created. http://forum.philosophynow.org/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=8454 Please observe how you are far more interested in me, than you are in violence against women, or violence in general. This is one...

Re: Is Violence Against Women Acceptable?

Ok, as you wish. The solution I have in mind will address the problem of violence against men too, in an even more effective manner.

So, is violence acceptable?

Re: Is Violence Against Women Acceptable?

This is the thread that Typist has created in order to get himself banned. He needs it to be controversial. That is why he has singled out women. To question the acceptability of violence in general is too reasonable to secure his banishment. It seems I personally am far more fascinating than all w...

Re: The Most Important Thread of 2012

Dear Hysterical Ninny, If you wish to have access to my time, the only way to get it is to start a new thread where all this moral superiority fantasy gibberish can be consolidated. That way readers won't have to wade through it in every thread that you and I participate in. You have very little to ...

By the way, my real name is Phil Tanny. And, if it's me you wish to discuss, please start a new thread on that topic and I will join you there. You've completely ruined this thread, so I'm going to abandon it and start a new one on the original topic. Here's the deal, I will respond to you in a new ...

Re: Is Violence Against Women Acceptable?

Bill, instead of endlessly clogging the forum with white space and vague emotional drivel, how about getting around to actually making some kind of intelligent case which you are prepared to defend. What is your thesis exactly? State your proposal in clear terms, articulate the reasoning behind your...

Re: The Most Important Thread of 2012

The same thing Rick Lewis is trying to accomplish with this site.

Make a living.

That is, not be a sad sack pathetic victim of evil employers, the 1%, and all of that.

Re: Is Violence Against Women Acceptable?

So we could talk about violence against women. But you prefer to talk about me. Ok then. To address your fascination with me, here's some biographical information. Your posts serve as a great example of why I don't see getting banned as being any kind of problem. ...How are those for intelligent que...

Re: Is Violence Against Women Acceptable?

I welcome challenges Bill, really I do. Insults are ok too, no problem. Really, go ahead, kick my ass, it's ok. I deserve it.

But really, put some frigging effort in to it. Think it through, say something intelligent.

Not the lazy blabber you are blurting out here, just not interested.

Re: Is Violence Against Women Acceptable?

Well, ok, I'm kidding you in that it's sort of a trick question. You are going to climb up on your self righteous moralizing high horse, and say "OF COURSE IT'S NOT ACCEPTABLE!" I predict there will be lots of white space involved somehow. :-) And then I'm going to demonstrate that you do in fact ac...
