Re: A Muslim is one who had Entered into a Contract with Allah.

Imagine a world where EVERY one was a 'muslim', or a 'follower of' PEACE, and submitted solely to PEACE? How GREAT and WONDROUS that would Truly BE. Yes! If they are all Sufis. If the word 'muslim' means follower of Peace , then what does the word 'sufis' mean? I can't be doing with all this monoth...

Re: There is No Distinction Between Appearances and Things in Themselves

No you can apply the context by pointing to where I said it. You said 'it' in the quote, which I replied to. But I just read what you wrote, again, and now take back what I wrote. But, to reply to your statement; What you claim is NOT true at all. That is an assertion. Your assertion here is correc...

Re: There is No Distinction Between Appearances and Things in Themselves

Provide the context of the statement. You were the one who made the statement. Therefore, AND OBVIOUSLY, you are the one who ALREADY KNOWS the context of the statement. So, if you like you can provide the context of the statement, and/or then clarify and answer my clarifying question. No you can ap...

Re: ethical suppression of speech

Scientists are usually more aware of their own conscious or unconscious bias than the general population I would actually say that the human beings known as, or who call themselves, "scientists" are just as susceptible to their own biases as "other" human beings are. The ones that are called "scien...

Re: earned citizenship

All individuals are entitled to justice. Very few individuals are entitled to be arbiters of justice. If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their ...

Re: earned citizenship

I can't concur that mere existence has value. I didn't say diddly about mere existence . I'm talkin' about personhood . People's desired ends typically require some kind of integration, so one's own-ness is normally a balance of socially desirable and necessary compromises. No. Ownness: being one's...
