Re: Is philosophy going extinct?

thinking is becoming extinct. thanks to the hive mind of facebook and smartphones While I applaud your hatred for facefuck, and high-IQ phones, I think thinking is becoming more and more rampant. People are out-of-work, more and more people. They have to do something with their time, and after watc...

Re: Privacy

I worked at the lab of this paint manufacturer. One day the manager called the head office to say he fired one of his workers because he figured this worker was planted as a spy to report on what was going on at the factory. I find it interesting that the owner didn't trust the manager to give him ...

Re: Is philosophy going extinct?

I think this site is definitely the ultimate proof for that. Seems like every discussion has become about politics and culture, which could be aided by philosophical truths but not what you probably mean. its all good - the AOLification to all internet - to the walled garden of facebook - where all...

Re: Why is racism so villified in the West?

This is maybe a controversial topic, but it is a philosophy forum, so I hope we can discuss this reasonably. There isn't a clear unambiguous definition of racism, but for the same of the argument, let me define it as a preference, that is, you prefer some people based on their race. Now, if you hav...

I think you mean 'genius', which is far more prevalent in males. I can't even think of any female ones off the top of my head.
Not genius (imaginative yes such as MC Escher who created impossible figures).

oh love Escher's work ;-).

Re: Can women judge beauty the same way men do and vice-versa?

There seems to be a male dominance in the arts as I indicated which I attribute to male hormones as I don't recall any prominent female artists in painting and music. It seems that women don't have the ability to judge what would interest men and women in music and painting and possibly other areas...

Re: Can women judge beauty the same way men do and vice-versa?

I don't think so. In the arts, I don't recall running across mention of prominent artists such as Da Vinci, Michaelangelo, Picasso, Bach, Beethoven, Mozart. I'm unable to account for this gender difference. Do you have anything to add? 🇺🇲PhilX🇺🇲 lol. you trying to be a troll sir? i'll add. women ha...

Re: What is a solipsist?

Nobody has a clue about what solipsism is. Except me. If I was a male theist I could run for POTUS. i doubt if you are a female theist (are you?) why throw sex into it? i have nothing against theists. one's character is outside of theism/sex. and i think i know your character enough from being here...
