Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

Spheres of Balance wrote: the only thing I see as eternal, is change. Thus no particular combination of matter is eternal. Of course if entropy is true, then not even that, may be eternal.

Re: Infanticide

SoB But still the composition of the brain is the master of all bodily functions. This is simply not true. The spinal column handles its own unique bodily functions like reflex reactions. Incorrect! The brain is the major processing unit of the nervous system. Major/master, take your pick? I agree....

Re: Infanticide

SoB Don't tell me that you're actually stupid enough to see the heart as anything more than a blood pumper. Really?? And so then where does this "heart thing" actually exist that you refer to? The mind you, "would be fool," you, the mind! Yes, the intellect has a great deal to do with it. I feel so...

Re: You have no image of yourself.

I have many images of myself, they're called photographs! They duplicate an exact copy of what the sense of sight reveals. It's all about light (electromagnetic energy) being reflected off any particular surface, where that portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, that is reflected, know by humans ...

Re: Is Christianity compatible with Determinism?

I don't know why you crazy people think that you can seriously consider speaking of anything that you can't prove. That you assert things about unproven entities, as if you could possibly know these things about them, as they've never been written by their hands, rather simply the hands of those anc...

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

Certainly values can never be seen as eternal, as they are not of the universe, only ever in the minds of humans What if.......there is no such thing as a human mind....what if....the mind is not human? Why do you always come up with silly ideas. You are you and I am I. I see through these eyes in ...

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

SpheresofBalance, despite the truths in your post there is more to be said for eternity than you give it credit for. OK, I'm game. Thoughts of what we fancy to be eternity but are probably analogies are nevertheless ways to be sceptical about the ontology we are closest to. It's good to be permanen...

Re: On the issue of "harm"

You already nailed it when you wrote: "an act can still be an act of harm regardless if the victim knows about it or experiences negative effects... it is harmful regardless of awareness. It devalues the human being as nothing more than an object of self-gratification or personal gain." Most people...

Re: Infanticide

SoB Don't we create our own reality? In our own minds! Some of which are megalomaniacal. Ignorance of self motivation, the psyche, still makes one ignorant. I'd say, even more so than most things. But then there are many that only know a world of ignorance! Though in truth it's never really blissfu...

Re: Infanticide

You still haven't explained what is wrong with infanticide if there are no eternal values. Infanticide should be one of your eternal values being fully accepted, found perfectly reasonable and completely justified by Plato himself, one of your chief enlightenment gurus and expounder of Eternal Valu...

Re: Infanticide

That you try and frame nonsensical ideas as intellectually sound doesn't legitimize them as being so. All ideas can be very confusing until that is, you realise where ideas are actually coming from, only then will sense become clear, all confusion is lifted in that moment of realisation. . Sorry bu...

Re: On the issue of "harm"

Firstly, I think that you'd have to ask yourself if you'd consider it harm if those things were done to you in the same way as you describe. That could be relative though, so regardless of what I might answer, it would really address the nature of harm . Someone could believe that as long as there ...
