Re: Castration of less evolutionary fit males

'Incel'. I've never heard that term. I suppose nature just takes care of those who are so repulsive to the opposite sex that they never get to pass on their unappealing genes. "Incel" is "involuntary celebate" and came to be popularized by some forum or subforums that many similar people wrote on. ...

Re: Castration of less evolutionary fit males

This is a polemical post, regardless I believe it raises a valid point regarding the so-called "incel" subculture (and the assorted freaks and degenerates who comprise it). As far as evolutionary psychology is concerned, only men at the bottom of the evolutionary hierarchy have to potentially resor...

Re: What is Truth?

If Absolutely Everything is possible in Totality, this includes the class of things that are Absolutely Impossible. If what you intend by the word, "Totality," is that which, "includes the class of things that are Absolutely Impossible," it is what everyone else means by the word, "nonsense." Your ...

Re: What is Truth?

Now you can DENY that other universes exist. I do not deny. There are many things which I know do not exist, things others make up in their own heads or believe that other's have made up in theirs, but I do not waste my time denying them. [Gods, angels, supernatural beings, other universes, come to...

Re: Coronavirus Craziness

Viruses are relatively inescapable. The Coronavirus is a unique type that survives longer than most because it has three general layers of protection that allow it to exist outside of a biological system longer. They are not 'living' and so these types that survive longer are prone to easy contagion...

Yeah Scott, I am not disagreeing with you.

Okay, I see. I don't know how I mistook your accent. (??) My mind is a bit distant lately.

Re: All Assertions are Simultaneously True and False

Example: The sun and moon are both equal through having color and round shapes. The sun and moon are unequal as having different colors and different surfaces to the shapes. The sun and moon are simultaneously equal and unequal. Nice and simple for an OP. I agree to what I believe you mean. I know ...

Re: All Assertions are Simultaneously True and False

True or false always depends on the applied framework of thought. Its as simple as that. So... why do people argue? Because they believe their framework is the only true and correct one... The framework is always right and wrong given context. For example: 1. (Einstein is alive) =T/F 2. (Einstein i...

Re: What is Truth?

If any X is in some U , and some Y is not in U , then X is said to be true of or to U ; Y is said to be not-true of or to U . Truth is just an 'agreement' of comparison between at least two classes where one class is properly inside of another. Set theory uses the word, ' comparable ' to describe t...

Re: Fun with logic, Peano and Constructivism!

I have no idea what you are talking about. The use of symbols is hardly being, "stuck." It is the method human beings have discovered to from concepts by which all knowledge is held. The rest of what you said seems totally irrelevant to the point. My original statement to which you responded was, "...

Re: Philosophy of Morality Different From Philosophy of Politics

I didn't miss your points. I disagree with them because you are not adding anything new but altering HOW you approach morals in a way you WANT them to exist universally. I understand why many do not want to permit a nihilisitic interpretation but can assure you that any depression that it may appea...

Re: Fun with logic, Peano and Constructivism!

Think of reality as merely abstract pieces or bits based upon nothing at all. Why would anyone think of reality in terms of a bad metaphor. Reality is not, "made up," of anything. Reality is simply all that is (exists) and has the nature it has, indepenedent of anyone's consciousness or knowledge o...
