Re: Why is nazism popular today?

It is a circular idea - since the "fittest" is defined as "those who survive". "Survival of those who survive" is not a useful concept. By "fittest" I think Darwin meant best fitted to their environment. So the concept would be, survival of those who are best fitted to their environment. The truth ...

In here we discuss that the reality is made of two things, minds and ideas. Minds are not due to/subjected to ideas. Therefore, they have no location.
I don't know if minds have no location. All I can say is that my mind never seems to be very far away from the rest of me.

Re: Morality

I suggest that human beings are born with a sense of what we term as ethics and morality. No they are not born with either sense. A moral sense is learnt behavior, the sense is an artificially contructed imposed progamme imputed into the brain of the new life from another source other than their ow...

But that would require an inquirer, and you have already admitted you have no concern over where such an inquirer would come from, so you'd be wasting your time on inquiring into something that is not actually there to even bother about.
Yes, I would be wasting my time, wouldn't I?

I join this group of senseless sense makers because it's all there is to do on a philosophy forum.
Okay, you do what you gotta do, but it also means having your own "sense" held up to scrutiny.

Re: Morality

You claimed you can observe knowledge, and yet do not know where that observer comes from, but that's ok, it can come from absolutely no idea where, as long as it does not come from god...what a load of blah! I don't believe it comes from God. Is that more to your liking? I don't believe it comes f...

Re: Morality

I agree that humans are just another animal, but you can't have it both ways. You can't advocate that animals be allowed to follow their own nature, but deny that privilege to humans. I can. I am a hypocrite. I expect more of you than I expect from my pets. But we are both human. If we were both ca...

Re: Morality

Seriously, you claimed that morality comes from humans and no other source could it have come from. But that's just as crazy as saying morality comes from God. But in your example, you have claimed morality cannot come from God, because you are so sure it comes from humans, even though you have no ...

Re: Morality

Humans will not admit or accept that truth. And is why animals are luckier than humans, because humans are born liars, cheats and selfish to the core. They are the greatest pretenders, because they have an ego that desires to be protected no matter what the cost. Being human comes at such a great p...

Re: Morality

So tell me, where does human consensus come from? By "human consensus", I mean the majority opinion of a particular social group. Then where does the knowledge of ''human knowledge'' come from? Our knowledge of human knowledge come from being exposed to it, I suppose. All you are saying is that con...

Re: Morality

Then you need to examine more closely as to who's existence you are talking about here? I don't think I do need to. It's not really an issue for me; I don't mind whether people procreate or not. I would rather leave the matter to those who care. But you have started a discussion subject labeled ''m...

Re: Morality

Perhaps you are right, but I'm not sure our sense of moral duty is strong enough for us to put it above our own existence. Then you need to examine more closely as to who's existence you are talking about here? I don't think I do need to. It's not really an issue for me; I don't mind whether people...

Re: Morality

So back to the concept of Morality... ...knowing what we know about morality..it is our moral duty to stop procreating. And also is it immoral to carry on procreating, knowing what we know about morality....is imposing immorality onto the unborn by dragging their innocent ass-holes into a world of ...
