Re: A discussion of the criteria you believe an ethical theory is supposed to have

I'm not sure I'm catching on too well with your work, but digging through of chunk your paper it seems you follow a sort of utilitarianism that determines a base level of quality from definitions and descriptions of things. I won't put words in your mouth, though. Maybe I haven't read through enough...

What do you think of Good-Samaritan laws?

I've been seeing a lot of debate about this on facebook because of a case that recently happened in florida. If you're not aware, the gist of it is two teens basically recorded a man drowning and didn't call anyone to help, or even reported the death afterwards. No charges were brought up since the ...

Re: Important notice to everyone

The higher, humanistic standard of perceptual good value/worth would, in fact, be pleasure (good moods/feelings) and pain (bad moods/feelings). The mechanistic standard simply means a no quality standard that would give no real perceptual quality of good value/worth to a person's life. Now, continu...

Re: A discussion of the criteria you believe an ethical theory is supposed to have

What you request has already been done ... by the ethical theory known as the new paradigm for Ethics, the Hartman/Katz theory. See - http://tinyurl.com/mfcgzfz In that same paper,for the definition of the term "morality" and how it can be translated into real-life conduct, see pp. 29-35. The first...

Re: A discussion of the criteria you believe an ethical theory is supposed to have

Another thing is defining 'morality' in accordance to way that the person you're discussing it with is. If you don't, you're not talking about the same thing. Not necessarily the pragmatics of everything they believe in their moral theory, just the actual, grammatical definition. Though this is a bi...

Re: A discussion of the criteria you believe an ethical theory is supposed to have

State the definition of what morality is and show how said definition has been or can be objectively accomplished in reality. If you're claiming that an invisible basis exists which assigns an intrinsic good/evil to something in the world, show how that basis has existential quantification and can a...

Re: Freedom or Freedoms as values

I sort of agree that to measure the legality of something, freedom should be viewed in the context of other things we have freedom to. For example, the US constitution is suppose to grant us protection from unreasonable search and seizure, so civil forfeiture and the war on drugs should not be a thi...

Re: Important notice to everyone

One might easily say that I have no evidence for this and that this is all just my opinion. But there could be a way to discover this evidence providing that there really is evidence for it. It would be through neuroscience. I think we know through neuroscience why pain is painful and why heat feel...

Re: YOU CAN'T GRAB THE FUTURE IF YOU'RE HANGING ONTO THE PAST

It's not always just for the sake of nostalgia. Many times, people hang on to what they currently use because people are famously bad at predicting the future. Many people are hesitant to install solar panels into their house or pool because, well, right now it just doesn't work very well. More impo...

Re: Are sexbots an intrusion in a relationship or an enhancement?

Would you be ok with child 'sex-bots' Yes, for the same reasons I would differentiate lolicon from actual child pornography. Or rape porn from actual rape. It's far enough away from the real thing and could mean something entirely different. More on point, there's not really any such thing as a 'ch...

Re: Are sexbots an intrusion in a relationship or an enhancement?

Do you think every perverted revoltingness that men fantasise about should be indulged and catered for? I think your concerns are sound, but I don't think they're logically valid. I don't believe there's a thin line between indulging a fantasy and that person acting it out in reality. I think indul...

Re: a surprising situation?

The problem with attributing an event to something religious or supernatural, is there is usually (as far as I'm concerned, always) another explanation that fits in perfectly fine with what we already accept. In science specifically, evidence is collected with correlation + a plausible explanatory m...

Re: Are sexbots an intrusion in a relationship or an enhancement?

I mean I worked at spencers and it's a little too kinky even for my blood. But no, I don't really have any moral problem with it. It's not much different than using any other sex toy. Robots have no capacity for consciousness, and I doubt they ever will within humanities existence, if even possible....
