Re: Logik's guide to successful detox from Philosophy Now

...I may add that Logic has no logic or reason issues, but he is also influenced, it seems to me and this is my personal opinion, by some psychologocial imbalances. Then again, who isn't. I believe that it is only in the amount and type of imbalance that we differ from each other as psychological b...

Re: Poetry here.

I wrote a poem about money recently... https://www.deviantart.com/doolhoofd/art/Posh-Dosh-770553945 Holy crap - that was really f'in good!! It pretty much summed up what I was quizzing about that long journal entry of yours! I got one in a similar vain called 'Twork' - a lot shorter and nowhere nea...

Re: the Sun is God

No worries. I created another thread the same day, in the General Philosophical Discussion section. https://forum.philosophynow.org/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=26685 Ok, so you wrote a massive entry there - no time to read that, and on a brief skippy speed read not really sure of what point you are making....

Re: "NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS", HERE'S THE SIMPLE TRUTH ABOUT ABORTION

Interesting footnote to the discussion on abortion and sex-selection. Last night, a friend of mine gave birth to a healthy baby boy. The thing is, the ultrasound technician told her some time ago that it was a girl. So until last night, she and her husband were expecting a girl. If they had "sex-se...

Re: Light reflecting colours from surfaces

RCSaunders: - Thanks for the info - really interesting will have a read of the Wiki article when I have spare time! To the 'further' part, I'd reverse that: the different atomic structures DEFINE what the light's source came from. One created, its wavelength fits with the kinds of atoms and/or the s...

Re: "NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS", HERE'S THE SIMPLE TRUTH ABOUT ABORTION

Bit of an oxymoron that one. If there were no BOLLOCKS, there certainly wouldn't be a requirement to ABORT! I was alluding to the title of a famous "Sex Pistol's" album that was released in 1975 (the "Sex Pistols" were an English punk rock band) "NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS - HERE'S THE SEX PISTOLS !" ...

Re: Einstein's train. All change, please.

Fuck it, given up on that other thread. Anyway, here's a couple of quotes to remind us what that was supposed to be about: “I am among those who think that science has great beauty. A scientist in his laboratory is not only a technician, he is also a child placed before natural phenomenon, which im...

Re: Light reflecting colours from surfaces

Ok hopefully someone can answer this! So as far as I am aware, when we see an object that is red this means all the wavelengths of light (assume from the Sun) have been absorbed by the surface of the object apart from the wavelength of 'red'... This may be true for a pure red, but most colors are u...

Re: Plato was an atheist?

To me, it just seems this convoluted entity has been banging away at some message to us - perhaps while self constrained, for aeons. For all I know you're right atto, me old mucker. I've no idea whether Jesus the son of god walked the Earth; I don't think the evidence is very compelling, but I can'...
