Re: is/ought, final answer

Your internal understanding of morality can be anything you want it to be. As soon as you start talking about murder, it's not an internal problem any longer and external variables are obviously necessary to consider. Yes, but you have to be pretty first, and do a crime sufficiently of interest to ...

Re: is/ought, final answer

OUGHTS are fact contingent. If we want world X, behavior Y is appropriate *because it's most likely to get us there*. If your priority is X and you're faced with situation Y, you OUGHT do thing Z. That's what morality is. There no fallacy whatsoever. Morality is entirely pragmatic in nature. What i...

Re: Fact [re Analytic] [re Morality]

The word "fact" is used many ways depending on context. But when the question is "what can make morality objective?", we are dealing with " objective moral facts", which expression has a pretty clear-cut, singular meaning. 1 more point goes to PH et. al. I guess, the score is about 167:0. The refere...

Re: Schizophrenia

Most schizophrenics are excessively paranoid, to the point where they can think that the picture on the wall or the gnome in the corner of the room are out to get them. But this is usually caused by very serious brain functionality problems. But the thing with conspiracy theorists is, yes 80-90% of ...

Re: Is morality objective or subjective?

A conscious mind is needed for any change. I am not saying that human consciousness is the only one. So you just want it to be true, but have no argument. I have an argument for that: Consider a change in a system, X to Y. X has to vanishes to leave room for Y if there is a change. There is however...

Re: Is morality objective or subjective?

You cannot deny consciousness. It affects what we experience too. Our experiences change since there is causation after the experience. You can even experience a decision in such a reality. The point is there is a fantastic correlation between what you experience, the decision you make, and then ca...

Re: Is morality objective or subjective?

So you are talking about block universe. Is everything in this universe is decided or it is open? What is the use of consciousness in the decided block universe? What makes you think that consciousness should have such a use? You cannot deny consciousness. It affects what we experience too. Our exp...

Re: Is morality objective or subjective?

A) Any change requires a mind Proof for A: Consider a change in a system, X to Y. X has to vanishes to leave room for Y otherwise there cannot be any change. There is however nothing when X vanishes and nothing cannot cause Y. Therefore, there is a mind that experiences X and causes Y then. That's ...

Re: Is morality objective or subjective?

Facts are defined to be independent of FSKs. Can you point to dictionaries which claim otherwise? Dictionaries meanings are useful for common use but what is more critical in a philosophy forum are philosophical definitions of a term and its ultimate implications. Can you point to philosophical dic...
