Re: Legislating Human Decency

Wow, this is a relatively old thread being 'bumped'. It's an interesting and very revealing OP, though. I never saw it before but the OP is also very depressing to read. In the end, agonizing enough that it is, I think tragedy is only tragedy. It can't be fixed; it can't be remedied; it can't be tur...

Us and Them.

The human delusion.
No "delusion" when it comes to the power relations between psychiatrists and their "patients".

Re: Supporting Evidences and References are Critical

Nb: in this case we are relating specifically to religious related evil and violence only, NOT ALL types of evil acts. Yes, but note, it is SOME Muslims are more violent than most other religious [not all] people in the world as driven by the loads of evil elements in their core holy texts. General...

Re: Supporting Evidences and References are Critical

Veritas, maybe it would help the argument between us along if I try to relate what I think I hear you saying. (Please correct me if I am misrepresenting your views): You believe that Muslims are more violent than most other peoples in the world AND it is because of what the Quran says that causes t...

Re: Why Did Jesus Die on The Cross?

Answer: Because that's where they decided to kill him. If you actually read the passage closely you would know he only hung there for ca 1h and was taken down! .....EVERYBODY else will hang there for least a few months!!!!!!!!!! It was a scam! If that were the case, then I could almost somehow envi...

Re: Supporting Evidences and References are Critical

From your answer I take it you don't understand where I'm coming from. That's fine. You do you. Just don't try to tell me what I should do or believe. I'll go with what my conscience and mind tells me based on my experiences. We all seem to have different experiences in the world that guide our bel...

Re: Supporting Evidences and References are Critical

Don't give those excuses. My approach is to critique the evil and violent elements from the ideology of Islam because it is so evident such elements has and is inspiring SOME evil prone Muslims to commit terrible evil and violent acts on non-believers as evident below; https://www.thereligionofpeac...

Re: Supporting Evidences and References are Critical

I have to say the above is a very stupid judgment and view. I have already stated, do not blame the Muslims but rather on the ideology of Islam. Note I deliberately raise this thread to explain; Do Not Blame Muslims! https://forum.philosophynow.org/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=24842 Surely in context [in t...

Re: Supporting Evidences and References are Critical

You are engaging in bigotry against an entire group of people based only on their shared ethnicity, many of whom have done nothing to you and what's worse is that you are trying to spread your bigotry to others here on the forum. That, is evil. I have to say the above is a very stupid judgment and ...

Re: Supporting Evidences and References are Critical

Unfortunately, it is human nature [for survival sake] that ALL humans has the potential to be evil and violent. Fortunately only a percentile [say 20% conservatively] are born with an active evil tendency. Including you, apparently. Yes, but I have done my best to be excluded from the 20%. I am not...

What would be this research into Neanderthals, should it continue?

Gazing at bones, or cave art?
Bones, artifacts (such as cave art) and DNA, I imagine.
