Re: Footnotes on Nietzsche

True evil, which should not be confused with good, is both a question of degree and a question of desperation. When minimal harm is done, that is usually not evil. When harm is done without recourse, that is usually not evil. Otherwise, great harm is usually evil. Selflessness, as it harms the self...

Re: Where does a priori knowledge come from?

It seems to me that all knowledge that we have is through experience since a person who does not have any capacity to experience from his/her childhood cannot have any knowledge. Therefore all knowledge is a posteriori . My Latin/English dictionary says it comes from the former. But, joking aside, ...

Re: What is the character of a woman?

Systematic --- Congratulations, your question assumes sex differences in character -- otherwise there would be no men’s and women’s characters, just human character. I assume, therefore, you are a man. It would be unwise to ask a woman: they are the ones who often deny sex differences (“I can do an...

Logical thinking requires Intuition

I realize that I have made a counterintuitive statement as the title of this topic. But it makes perfect sense. Give me a moment to explain. Logic, by its nature is eliminative, but intuition gives plenty of thought options. So let's say that, like Socrates, we know that we do not know anything. So ...

What is the character of a woman?

Women are meek and mild, subservient creatures. Or so we've been led to believe. Apparently no one had asked the Russians before they became communist... What are your women like? Are they domicile like our women? Do they blindly believe or do they think? Nietzsche's fault lies in his sexism. Did th...

Alternative Explanations of Experiments

Present belief: The speed of light is the absolute speed limit. Nothing usually goes faster than the speed of light if ever. Alternative Explanation: Visible light travels at the speed of light where time stops. Meaning that it impinges for no time, bouncing right off of opaque matter. Also making i...

Re: Witchcraft

I'm an (materialistic) atheist, but I do have to say that if something were to convince me of the supernatural, it would probably have to be a more personable experience. Like encountering a 'ghost', or something to that degree. When I was younger, I specifically seeked out things like that; I play...

Re: Witchcraft

What are some of the things that you've seen achieved with witchcraft? I'm guessing you practice it yourself? I believe that the trade center bombings of 9/11/01 were caused by witchcraft. It was enacted by a Christian in my youth group. Not that all witchcraft has to hurt people like that. Ironic,...

Witchcraft

Had I the choice between atheism and christianity, I would choose atheism. But if you are an atheist, consider this: How many things do we know about in science that cannot be seen. I know that witchcraft exists the way that I know that nuclear power exists. It's as simple as this, it works. Like nu...

Re: What can be done to increase humanity’s conscience?

I don't know what world you're living in, but I can't get anyone to help me fight for our rights because of their own conscience. I am observing options, which is why the brutal dictator approach (as I an subjectively agree to your circumstances) will be inevitable. What about fairness and equality...

Re: IoT and Computer Science

It seems that computers are taking over our world, making it more automatic. I think that is a good thing except for one point: In order to automate, you must program. You might not have to break out the C++ primer, but you must usually get out your terminal bash commands for Linux. It seems there ...

Re: A scientific definition of good and bad

So, my friend, are you denying the truth of the conclusions of George Edward Moore as explained in his book, PRINCIPIA ETHICA -- and thus refuting the Naturalistic Fallacy? I would suggest you are not. Moore shows the weakness in your argument. Your definition of "good" is full of holes. Sorry! Are...
