Re: Kant: "The Universe Has a Beginning is False"

How about this: The reality is coherent, ontology. The idea of eternal past is incoherent, epistemology. Therefore, eternal past cannot be real ontologically since it cannot even be true epistemologically. How about this? "The reality is coherent, ontology of independence" is incoherent. The realit...

Re: Kant: "The Universe Has a Beginning is False"

The universe is either eternal (has no beginning) or has a beginning. It cannot be eternal therefore it has a beginning. Note Kant argued both claims of 'the Universe is eternal' or 'Universe has a beginning' are false. Kant went a few layers deeper from common knowledge to argue his point. You nee...

Re: The Unavoidability of Belief within Reason

You are too narrow, shallow and off target on the above. What is held to be true lies on a continuum of truths from .01/100 to 99.99/100 and each of the below has its own range of degrees of objectivity. 1. opinions - high subjectivity with very nil or low objectivity 1/100 2.

Re: What is Truth?

Most of your statements are baseless statements. If you think so, just ignore them. That's right! Just anyone with a computer may write whatever they like, which also means anyone who chooses to may ignore them. Freedom of speech means freedom to say anything, but includes freedom to only listen to...

Common sense presupposes we know what we are. And where. Thus, fouling the question.
I had critiqued common sense in the OP as inferior, thus useless for philosophical arguments.

To stay above the "foul", the point in the OP need philosophical reflection.

Re: Kant: "The Universe Has a Beginning is False"

It must logically have a beginning, but it's much much older than what we think, it might be trillions^trillion 'Beginning' is just a word in the linguistic perspective. The term 'beginning' is merely a convenient term to represent a phase of reality. Do you have any idea of the philosophical quest...

Re: What could make morality objective?

Did you read the summary, RC? If you didn't then we've got a basic problem. You don't know what "contingent" means in philosophical terms. Oh, yes I did (read the article) and recognized the scent of Kant immediately. I know exactly what "contingent," means in that corrupt version of philosophy. Th...

Re: Kant: "The Universe Has a Beginning is False"

How to resolve the above impasse; In each of these antinomial conflicts, reason finds itself at an impasse. Satisfying the demands placed by our rational capacity to think beyond experience, the thesis arguments offer what appears to be a satisfying resting-place for explanation. The antithesis cha...

To Insist there is an Independent Reality is an Oxymoron.

From the vulgar [common] sense, it is obvious there is an external world out there that is 'independent' from the individual human person. There is no need to dispute this at the 'vulgar' level. But is reality-as-it-is really and absolutely independent of the human person? The ultimate gambit thrown...

Re: Evil Right Wing Fascism will eventually win

Why do evil right wing fascists always win elections - if not now, then in the near future? .... No wonder why fascism persists even to this day. But I do wonder, why is Fascism so popular? I believe the "evil right wing" are winning because the evil left wing are relatively MORE evil. There are al...

Re: What could make morality objective?

According to Hume, there is no such thing as causation. No. According to Hume, we do not have the means to prove causation. That's quite different from a claim it doesn't exist . We can't prove the size of the universe. That doesn't imply the universe doesn't have a size. We can't prove how much wa...
