Re: Why Moral Realism Is Almost Certainly True

So you are right that what is morally good [to be defined precisely] should not be related to what is preferred subjectively, loved and liked by anyone. My view is what is morality is for every and each individual to recognize, understand, realize the nature of their inherent morality, then develop...

Re: Prove An Independent Reality-in-Itself Exists

Ventas Acquitas: "What I am stating is the emergence of the existence of reality [creation of] is inevitably entangled with the human conditions. As such, humans are co-creators of the reality they are part and parcel of. If anyone claimed otherwise, one cannot prove there is an existing independen...

Re: Conversion of Opinions and Beliefs into Knowledge

I wonder why it is so difficult for anyone to understand how opinions and beliefs are converted into knowledge via specific institutions or framework and system of knowledge [FSK]. That's not difficult to understand. What's difficult to understand is why you'd think that knowledge isn't belief. It ...

Re: Conversion of Opinions and Beliefs into Knowledge

I wonder why it is so difficult for anyone to understand how opinions and beliefs are converted into knowledge via specific institutions or framework and system of knowledge [FSK].

Re: Conversion of Opinions and Beliefs into Knowledge

The standard bearer of the highest credibility at present is the scientific framework and system [FSK]. I have claimed and argued for, my moral FSK has similar [not exactly] to the scientific FSK. People try that trick all the time, have you learned anything from their mistakes? Marx argued his ana...

Re: What could make morality objective?

It's a fact that water is H2O. Objectively speaking, water is H2O. It's true that water is H2O. Those are assertions with a demonstrable truth-value. They claim something about reality that is or isn't the case. And because it demonstrably is the case, these factual assertions are true. Now do the ...

Re: What could make morality objective?

The expression 'a true objective fact' is a complete mess. Could there be a false fact, or a subjective fact? It's because what we call truth, facts and objectivity are what we say they are - that our saying an assertion is true doesn't mean it must be true - or even that it's factual at all. On my...

Re: What could make morality objective?

When you write stuff like that you come across in the vein of someone like Rush Limbaugh or Alex Jones. (Or at best, like, say, Ayn Rand writing about Kant.) He is a big fan of Dinesh D'Souza, so a bit of the old Rush Limbaugh is sort of to be expected. I wasn't familiar with D'Souza, but I just lo...

Re: What could make morality objective?

Here is VA's claim: '...everything that was, is and will be the case in the universe CANNOT exist independently of the human conditions.' VA thinks this justifies the claim that morality is objective - that there are moral facts. Perhaps this is the argument: All facts - all features of reality - d...

Re: From Scientific-FSK Truths to Legal-FSK Truths

It is a legal truth within a legal FSK, J oseph James DeAngelo [aka Golden State Killer] was convicted of 12 homicides, 45 rapes, and 120 home invasions in the 1970s and ’80s in California.. Each case of conviction itself is a legal-FSK truth within the specific legal FSK. Investigators had collect...

Re: From Scientific-FSK Truths to Legal-FSK Truths

So step by step. (1) You'd say that the evidence either (a) doesn't exist independently of our minds, or (b) at least can't be known or observed as something independent of our minds, correct? I did not state the above as unqualified. As qualified, I stated [as in another post to you]; 1. Common an...

Re: From Scientific-FSK Truths to Legal-FSK Truths

So what exactly is an FSK? Is each bit of knowledge part of one or many of these FSK things? Please explain properly how they work. It's just a narrative/model/paradigm/philosophy. People take their favourite axioms, stitch them together and pretend they've solved a problem they've made up. As a mo...
