Re: Infinite Regress of Causality

Ignorance with regard to the "causes" of quantum activity. Activity which appears random; probabilities instead of certainties. It is my contention that this "randomness" is due to human ignorance. With regard to the wave/particle duality, it seems that matter is in fact formed by energy organised ...

Then how else can you account for breaks in an infinite, causal chain???

Would you not agree that the Christian is ignorant when he breaks this chain with God???

These are your own arguments talking.

Re: Infinite Regress of Causality

@realunoriginal: Materialists cannot account for this QM discrepancy. Thus the Causality argument lingers on. I would prefer to regard this as ignorance, rather than an actual lack of causative processes. Me too. That is why I brought up Human Ignorance as relevant to the Causal-process in our earl...

Re: Beer makes you stronger, cleverer and more attractive

This thread is a perfect example of why faggots should not be trusted and should be exterminated...

(from philosophy forums that is)

If Psychofag was a "smart" fag then that would be a different matter...unfortunately that is not the case here.

Re: Infinite Regress of Causality

...the idea of a First Cause sounds somewhat fishy in light of the modern theory of quantum mechanics. According to the most commonly accepted interpretation of quantum mechanics, individual subatomic particles can behave in unpredictable ways and there are numerous random, uncaused events. (Morris...

Re: Beer makes you stronger, cleverer and more attractive

Beer inebriates you: "liquid courage" as we call it in the States...

Nothing more, nothing less. It does not make you "stronger", "cleverer", or "more attractive".

If anything, alcohol makes you less of a coward.

Re: Infinite Regress of Causality

I think my opinions would seem rather redundant on this topic, but yes, typical of this forum for the idiots to be incapable of any kind of philosophical argument. They are best-suited to bitch & moan about great men they never really-know anything about.

Re: Uncaused Cause

Well, I don't know if light forms are directly analogous to causality. I do not know if can be analogous as well. But I did want to make a point of it because the thought and comparison came-to-mind. The uncaused-cause *CAN* exist in a limited/finite (reality) set. This limit is set by human knowin...

Re: Uncaused Cause

Do you realize that you just presented a philosophical version of the fundamental Quantum Mechanic problem? What is this, exactly? Quantum Mechanics, and Science in-general, as Physics, tells us that Light-energy exists in two modes... a duality . There exists a light-as-wave function and a light-a...

Re: Uncaused Cause

The way I see it, the universe may have came about in one of the following ways. 1) It was caused by an uncaused cause; 1st cause, "god", primal chaos etc. This, in my view, is not causation because the chain of causation has been broken by the inclusion of an uncaused cause. Calling causation limi...

Re: Uncaused Cause

Re: Uncaused Cause

1) There is causation within the universe. Really? Where? 2) Therefore, it is hypothesized that the universe itself was caused. Who hypothesizes this...except Christians and Western Dogmatists? 3) This "1st" cause being an undefined value called "god". That is how the hypothesis goes, yes... 4) Thi...
