Re: A question of philosophy?

If we can ignore (for the sake of the question) the certainty/probability/possibility that biological factors influence things, could you agree with the following statement? "If I'd experienced exactly what you experienced throughout your life, I would feel/believe the same way that you do." Great ...

Re: A question of philosophy?

"If I'd experienced exactly what you experienced throughout your life, I would feel/believe the same way that you do." No, by saying this would suggest you lack basic knowledge about psychology, intellects etc. An IQ 115++ would find it dreadful boring doing stuff what an IQ 90 find amusing, people...

Re:   We know.

concur, i think there is too much hubris in man myself, some humility- do not know or will ever know is apt. I don't think man as a collective knower of things across the species and man's belief in its own abilities is hubris. I think it is more a case of "I calls them as I sees them". agreed, per...

Re: Why is nazism popular today?

Found the Goethe quote: “Beauty is a manifestation of secret natural laws, which otherwise would have been hidden from us forever.” I found the quote prior, to be honest i think the quote is gobly-gook. disagree with it, though not dissparaging Goathe. i know nothing about him, just think that quot...

It shows, and a affirm your method/s onthis forum is a-ok by me. I note your "snarkiness" (sp) as fine (just your personality) - and note your me...

Re: Science vs. Meaning

Faith (ie. religious faith) tries to answer the meaning of everything. Science tries to answer the workings of everything.
