Re: The words we think as opposed to what we experience

Firstly I don't know what you're arguing against when you draw distinctions between words and feelings. That's the heading of your post but realistically, I don't know anyone who argues that thinking about suffering and suffering are the same things. There is an intellectual aspect to emotions, how...

The words we think as opposed to what we experience

I've struggled with many miserable moments in my life and my emotional experiences were something powerful and profound. This experience has led me to a conclusion that I'm desperate to prove. I've been trying to prove it time after time. But all those attempts have failed since I didn't present and...

Why emotions and value are the same thing

Note to Reader: I support my view with as many arguments I can to make it thoroughly convincing. If I just said a simple statement or paragraph, that would leave plenty of room for objections. So, I attempt to address all the objections I can think of. I attempt to explain why my positive emotions ...

Re: My new support for hedonism

Here is my opinion on your theory of value. Emotions are quick and dirty signals we have, which are, as you say, a pat on the back, or a slap on the wrist. Beyond that, they also engage and prepare our body for potential future events which are predicted to occur. Value is not the same thing. Value...

Re: My new support for hedonism

. You use a lot of words. In this medium, that usually doesn't bode well. I'm not trying to prove you wrong or right. Your experiences and the subsequent interpretation you have committed to are perfect for you. If the point of this thread is to fish for support of your opinion, I hope you find it....

Re: My new support for hedonism

. All due respect, think you are a bit confused on knowing yourself and labeling your functions as a human. I am, in no way, discounting the horror that you must have felt at one point. I think I understand you. Connotation of a few words only - perhaps separates you & the responses that you have h...

Re: My new support for hedonism

There is no support for the idea that our emotions determine what is moral. It should also be noted that there is the proper use of biological science and an improper use, which is becoming increasingly common these days. I can find numerous so-called public intellectuals who claim such things as i...

Re: My new support for hedonism

Mozart: You are just repeating the naturalistic fallacy, which Hume pointed out centuries ago. Just because something is natural does not mean it is moral. For example, naturally speaking, humans are likely not monogamous with males naturally having more than one mate at a time. Does that make poly...

Re: My new support for hedonism

With all due respect, any moral system that takes the position child rape is moral if a child rapist gets an emotional thrill from raping children, is not one that I see as having any merit whatsoever. All you are doing is engaging in the naturalistic fallacy and anytime someone gets a good feeling...

Re: My new support for hedonism

So, if a child-rapist feels good emotionally after raping a child, then this makes child-rape moral? Isn't your claim that morality is derived from emotions simply the naturalistic fallacy? It would be a good thing, according to my worldview. However, just because my worldview sounds absurd and fal...

Re: My new support for hedonism

. Couple of things I would like to review you upon. First: In essence, your views are in-line with the vast majority of humanity. Humanity agrees with you. So, I strongly oppose your assumption in that. Thing to keep in-mind is that emotions are immediate. Waaaaaay faster than the intellectual func...

My new support for hedonism

Proof That Our Emotions Are The Perception Of Value: I talk about how our emotions allow us to perceive value. Many people would disagree with this idea because many people think that emotions are just simply emotions (i.e. how we feel about things) and nothing more. But I think this example I am g...

What god's holy light really is

Most people would think that god's holy light within us would be something such as repenting our sins to Jesus and being saved. This is just to name one example which would be a fundamentalist Christian example. They would say that, without god's holy light within us, then our lives are truly empty ...
