Re: Pleasure is the only thing that makes us good people

Well MozartLink, read through that bit of text you provided. Your "proof" has a fundamental flaw...you never defined what suffering really is. What is pleasure? Well most people would say pleasure is mindlessness. Drugs, sex, videogames, action. Mindlessness. Emotionally centered. Well, some would s...

Re: Richard Dawkins

Richard Dawkins is a good scientist but a remedial philosopher, Daniel Dennett is his best friend, I magine if they combined forces to make the Dennetkins? Hmm...combining two minds...an experimental force. Hmm, but the best way to boost power in this way is just to tell your friend the truth, thou...

Re: Why are people scared of philosophy?

It is just blind leading the fools. It is better to be a fool than to be blind. Foolishness is a state of mind, retardcy is a state of mind, but it takes a miracle to heal the blind. By retardcy I do not refer to clinical retardation. That completely went over my head. Would you please explain it? ...

Re: Wood and Chair question

No, because wooden chairs are just as organic as the wood they were created from. Many chemicals are toxic, but are organic chemicals. What should be labelled as a hazard to health, should be labelled as toxic, no more no less. The current state of labeling just adds untruth, double-meanings, and c...

Re: Good day all

I think that it makes him a brainwashed ninny. I took some philosophy classes; they were about as rational as the mud is clear. It's not just about rational, it's about how relaxing they are. Are the classes day-dream fodder? If so, perhaps they have some value after all, helping to soothe and reju...

Re: Wood and Chair question

Hi all, This is my first post :) I have been wondering this for some time. My question may be badly formuated, so apologies! Is there a word to differenciate two objects, one which is 'natural' and the other which has been constructed. i.e wood and chair? Although wood has intrinsic existence, a ch...

Re: Richard Dawkins

He is a thinker. He performs no real action other than cheap entertainment. He offers no scientific investigation on the nature of life and death, no experiments concerning the metaphysical, or scientific experiments on what occurs after bodily death. Extraneous thought is the stuff of dreams, one ...
