Re: Your brain hallucinates your conscious reality

Earlier I posted, “My brain hallucinates VA.” Apparently, someone doesn’t appreciate comments in strict accord with the OP and deleted it. If my brain hallucinates my conscious reality and VA is a part of that reality, then, clearly, my brain hallucinates VA.

Re: The Inevitable Nature of Looping

Holophany: The Loop of Creation (Free PDF download) Thanks, will look into, try Hofstadter when you have the time ("Godel, Escher, Bach" specifically as "I am a Strange Loop" is more of personal account of the author) it is worth the read and is a solid philosophical book relative to the "best sell...

There are no logic reasons to accept the idea of a god. Anything you can think of, can be explained! So atheism is most likely true.
Explain why there is something rather than nothing without appealing to promissory materialism.

My point with God is sufficiently represented in the Wiki article.
Anyone who believes that is 6 cans short of a six-pack.

Being a yank makes someone a moron. I've never seen any evidence to say otherwise.
Look in the mirror veggie-head.

P.S.:

Who gives a rat’s excrement what Hawking believed in such matters?

There’s nothing to figure out (except for said rules). Nothing is definite.
My goals and desires are definite.

And figuring out the rules (and even breaking them) aligns with my goals and desires.

Seeing my ideas become reality - aligns with my goals and desires.
That’s the problem.

Re: What if God is weak?

Consciousness is NOT an emergent property of brains. I The statement that consciousness comes from brains is nothing more than a flimsy metaphysical assumption that collapses upon further metaphysical examination. Of course most scientifically minded people ignore metaphysics which produces sloppy ...

Re: What if God is weak?

Re: What if God is weak?

Hypocrisy, as per the bold text. You offer nothing. Every thread it's the same - just your feeble partisan Republican Twitter posts (oh, and the occasional link that you don't even read first). Go. You do not belong. Note the edited version. You have some serious mental problems. Case in point. May...

Re: What if God is weak?

Not long ago you wrote this gratuitous political jab in the thread: You announce yourself as a tribal Republican, yet the link you bragged about posting as if it gave you credibility referred to "works of love, forgiveness and hospitality", which is antithetical to today's Republicanism. That's why...

Two links without any summary, explanation, or any suggestion that you understand the material you are posting. Your position would be more credible if you weren't such a hardline Republican, which hardly squares with: Where do today's Republicans have even the slightest connection with "love, forg...

Re: Alinsky's Rules for Radicals

. The OP is a fair summary of what appears to be rapidly growing right wing political correctness and retreat from reason. There is nothing interesting or philosophically relevant there at all. Just a political rant. You ideally should go to Facebook or Twitter if that's your game rather than screw...
