Re: Where is the sanity?

I got trump to the right of me, faggot liberals to the left. Where is the sanity? Don't ever wonder why no one seems to love you, one has to love in order to be loved! One has to know what love is to see it in their life. This is not the future I wanted or pictured. Shit movies like "Call me by you...

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

... Only the modern educated western mind will call it shit. Others not so educated can appreciate how the ancients understood the reality and importance of eternal values. http://www.bbc.co.uk/religion/religions/hinduism/concepts/concepts_1.shtml I think there're a few reasons why such stuff is po...

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

Largely I see Dontaskme as a lunatic. Such are all that believe in things they can't see, smell, hear, feel or taste, with their inborn sensors or those that can be manufactured with elements. You know, invisible imaginative things like leprechauns, faeries, gods, the loch ness monster, bigfoot, tro...

Re: Which physics theory is hardest to believe?

As far as the topic is concerned, I don't know where to start. Today I take the strictest of views before believing in any particular scientific proposition. When I was younger, like everyone, I took that which I read and was taught, on faith alone, especially if it seemed to be reasonable. But thes...

Re: Which physics theory is hardest to believe?

...neither you, nor I, nor anyone else, can say for certain, that they know the actual case. Funnily enough I was just saying as much to Atla. All that you can say with any sort of truth on your tongue is that you chose to buy into the most accepted theory on what is the case. Spheres, me old China...

You do not even know if someone else has died...you would have to be there in that persons death to confirm it to be true...truth is you have no idea what death is...it's just an idea...it's a belief. ...

Re: Religious lies. Why do we knowingly accept them?

Greatest I Am, When you write that, "Yahweh is a genocidal son murdering p****, that they adore and see as good, has them placing their moral sense into dissonance as well. No?" you are basing this on a literal interpretation of those ancient writings, which the authors never intended. Nothing pers...

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

There is no other place beyond what is here right now...it's not like you can step out of the now. This is what eternal means. You're out of your mind as it was used by the OP. Pay attention to context! You said yourself that values are not certain. Here today, gone tomorrow, there is no eternal. A...

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

No values have ever been or ever will be eternal. They are because what and who you are is eternal. Not a chance! The value is placed there by you, Exactly! or the value is of no value...it's a matter of choice. Universally speaking, correct! Which do you prefer in order to evolve? I prefer what th...

Religious lies. Why do we knowingly accept them? People, I hope, are not foolish or gullible enough to really believe in the talking serpent and donkey of the bible nor the 72 virgins ot the Qur’an.

Re: Which physics theory is hardest to believe?

Well, ya gotta distinguish between the ontology and the epistemology. Take the Ptolemaic model of the universe. We all know that the ontology is wrong-the Earth is not the centre of the universe. However, in epistemic terms, you can use the model to calculate where a particular planet (at least the...
