Re: Why is nazism popular today?

Nothing wrote: I prefer to stick to reading the doctrine of the ideology itself. Okay. But aren't all ideologies bad such that the more they are prescriptive the more bad they be? You quote from Genesis about The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. That tree is the tree that bears the fruit nam...

Re: Good Religion, and the Good It Can Do

Is it any wonder why the quality of human being (human perspective) is lessening as knowledge of facts increases? What on earth do you mean with this? You've herd that old expression: "he can't see the forest for the trees." The forest is representative of the realistic human perspective of wholene...

Re: Should 'God' be taught is school? (Non religiously)

What has this to do with if God should be taught in school ? What do you mean by teaching God? I kind of see 15 yos rolling eyes and sigh here... I love you man. Great direction for the topic. Ok, well consider this: People look for agency even when it doesn't exist. It is human nature. Coupled wit...

Re: Should 'God' be taught is school? (Non religiously)

I'm sure many remember the courts ruled against it. I argued on science forums in my youth that it should, but due to the attack structure of the forums administrators, I never got to explore the topic to say my peace. I feel atheist and religious individuals have both blundered, because they decid...

Re: Open Socialism: A modern capitalism alternative

Found this now. Followed links to a few levels, too much needed to form an opinion, to get interested. So, with 3-4 lines of text, and cut out the motivations, what is to be done, and what intitutions are needed? What will the more obvious objections be from current left and right, an what are the a...

Re: Individualism vs. Collectivism

One of the most important basic and avoided questions is if a person considers themselves essentially an Individualist or a collectivist. It seems more enjoyable to argue over techniques or good and bad. But the question of Individualism vs. Collectivism as desired method to improve human nature pu...

Hi, there, just wanted to know if Plato was an atheist. I tried searching on the net for the answer but did not find the answer so I came here. About plato, f*ck knows, since we only know what he let Socrates and the boys have their say in the dialogues. And having read most of them I would say tha...

Re: Rebuilding Notre Dame vs. Helping the Poor

I couldnt answer to that poll with a yes or no. Its both a naive and an interesting question. First of all, if a rich guy want to spend a couple on millions on the Notre Dame, better for me than if he buys a couple of Rolls Royces. And some of the rich and famous, with Bill Gates in the vanguard mak...
