Re: Time does not exist.

Time IS change. Saying that is like saying "Length is a pencil." You're confusing what you are measuring with the measurement. Change is what is being measured, and we use time to measure it, just as some object has dimensions and we use length to measure it. The fact is that the measurement of cha...

I would say that what she did is wrong because she doesn't own the medium in which she is using to make her art. National Parks are for all of us to enjoy and to experience the natural world without being exposed to someone's self-centered grab for attention. Why couldn't she just have drawn these p...

Re: the absurdity of the american voter, americans, america, etc. and etc.

If elections were viewed properly (as hiring an employee instead of installing a noble) then voters, americans, america might get the kind of practical, minimalist, public service (and servants) it needs. But, noooooooo... There seems to be an unattractive aspect of the human psyche that craves 'le...

Re: ~ Consciousness; the brain’s non-conceptual theory about itself ~

. Ultimately, Cleeremans believes that consciousness is “the brain’s theory about itself.” In other words, consciousness is simply being self-aware. But isn't this simply a result of how the brain categorizes experiences? A self is simply a category of certain experiences, just as trees, rocks, clo...

Re: should incest between consenting adults be illegal

Of course incest should be legal. We already have gay marriage establishing the precedent of "If you love each other and are consenting adults, then you should be able to get married." People who get married aren't under any requirement to have kids. Gay couples who get married aren't being restrict...

Re: Solipsism

If Solipsism were true, then why would language and communication be an idea or concept that the solipsist could even come to imagine? How would such an idea arise within it's solipsist mind? If Solipsism were true, then I am the solipsist and all of you aren't even human beings. You all are just te...

Re: Would you say the more assumptions you hold, the less open-minded you would be?

If you hold assumptions, that doesn't necessarily mean you don't have an open mind. If you are willing to be open to changing your assumption when provided with new evidence, then you have an open mind. You have to think about how an assumption is made and what it's origin may be. I don't think assu...
