Re: Life is boring and meaningless, and most humans are ignorant & stupid. What is the meaning of life?

. I believe your association to me as being monk-like is spot-on, in a modern type of way. I appreciate your perspective in that regard. As you say, I am not lazy. It's just that I have reached a point in my life, because of the present circumstances that I find myself in and because of my proclivi...

Re: Consciousness and free will.

Hi David, well, to be more precise and to put simply, ‘thinking’ is not possible, but ‘experiencing thoughts’ are. Thinking (the ability to knowingly construct one’s own thoughts to then experience) is not logically possible due to ‘infinite regression’. Where do my thoughts come from? Do I actuall...

Re: Consciousness and free will.

RG1, as you well stated thinking and thought are the same thing, there is no thought without thinking, and there's no thinking without something thought. But if our thoughts cannot dictate what we think, our thinking is to dictate our thoughts, as if I don't think of "X", how could "X" dictate to be...

Re: Why did God create so many idiots?

We all have seen them. They are all over. In government, in military, in business, in the citizenry at large and even on forums. So why did 'god' create so many idiots? Damn if I know. I ask myself this question every single day. Never any answer, only more and more idiots! :cry: Especially on the ...

Re: Did you know that the “Fall of The Roman Empire” is a myth?

No, I don't agree Mel, sorry. We have nothing of them. Roman law, names of the months, and many, many customs, quite a few directly or indirectly through the church. Our debt to Rome is enormous, but you don't see it because it's part of our daily lives. Yes, I'm not saying you are wrong, for these...
