Re: Islamic Rationalism

You started a whole thread about the applications of hermaneutics a couple of weeks ago. Have you already forgotton what it means? I did not claim I agreed with every aspects of hermeneutics, especially where Rorty stated it can extend to 'anything goes' even mysticism and religions. What I stated ...

Re: Conversion of Opinions and Beliefs into Knowledge

The point is you questioned how opinions and beliefs can be converted to knowledge when it is institutionalized. Oy vey--no. You said that it becomes something other than belief. Since knowledge is a type of belief, I'm not wondering how you're saying it becomes knowledge. That wouldn't be explaini...

Real Physical Moral Drivers are Independent of 'Moral' Judgments

Real Physical Moral Drivers are Independent of 'Moral' Judgments, Decision, Opinions, Beliefs and related views. Here is a discussion to support the above; When someone expressed an opinion or belief, there are corresponding real physical brain matters and processes that enable the opinion or belief...

Re: What could make morality objective?

Okay, I understand your distinction between 'in a mind' (subjective) and 'outside a mind' (objective). And, as you know, I think that minds, like all abstract or non-physical things, are misleading metaphysical fictions - so that your account of the subjective/objective distinction is incorrect. I ...

Re: What could make morality objective?

Both 1 and 2 are real physical things related to morality proper. Since these are verifiable and justifiable physical moral things which are universal in all humans, therefore morality-proper is objective, i.e. independent of anyone's opinions or beliefs. Aside from disagreement about how to use th...

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

What the hell does "in the ultimate sense of reality" even refer to first off? As usual you are unable to infer what is common philosophical knowledge because you are dogmatic and don't bother to reflect more deeply and widely. 1. When we look at rocks, common sense of reality will represent them a...

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

There is a specific framework and system to science is specific in the sense that science cannot be theology, history, arts, and others which are considered non-science and to the extent science-proper can be differentiated from pseudo-science. I believe philosophers and scientists will agree with ...

Re: Why Moral Realism Is Almost Certainly True

The above is a VERY STRONG inductive inference that there are real moral things that are inherent and natural in all humans. It would just be a contingent fact of it were 100%, but that it's not 100% means that it is not inherent or natural in ALL humans. It's just contingent of the case in the vas...

Re: Why Moral Realism Is Almost Certainly True

Where do you figure "what is inherently and naturally moral" obtains or emerges from? Where is it found/what is it a property of? The above is not from DP Martin [he did not 'quote' properly in the above], they are my views. I have discussed that with you before. 'Killing humans' is a moral element...

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

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...
