Choice theory is a tautology of the observer, as such free will exists through laws which govern it. The laws of physics govern the observer. The laws of logic are not laws - they are false gods. Do you believe in progress by means of the dialectic thesis-antithesis-synthesis except there is no kno...

I suggest if you want to see the actual Truth of things, then you start by speaking the actual Truth first.
The Truth is that there is no Truth.

how so?
When you are using a ruler to measure a table, you are also using the table to measure the ruler.

Re: Why is nazism popular today?

IvoryBlackBishop, I agree. As we have seen whole societies might be under the rule of a gang. Mafia, and ISIS, are small players compared with gangs whose rule depends upon unrestrained capitalism.

Re: A Stoic Response To The Climate Crisis

Henry it was was up to me to make myself clear, so I will try again if I may.

Youths don't spend their lives secluded from other youths and from other social contacts many of whom they respect. These social contacts are how youths learn what to believe and trust.

Little babies don't believe they react. Believing is an activity that accrues through experience. Growing youths experience immersion in particular cultures.

Re: What could make morality objective?

Lovely piece of written prose from Einstein thanks for that Skepdick. As for Bohr, and his love for the Yin Yang symbol I love it too because change itself defines existence itself. I wonder if there is any philosopher who can deny change itself defines existence itself. Even Plato did not deny rela...
