Trump - a puzzling enigma

Do yourself a favour and just spend a minute looking at this link. https://twitter.com/lumi_1984/status/1290547622219063296 What is going on here? 1 Trump actually believes his own lies. 2 Trump thinks he is so smart that he can bamboozle a moderately intelligent reporter. 3 Trump is just stupid and...

Re: Marx and the Labor Theory of Value

Was watching this video on Marx and the labor theory of value. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dEvnq6y5sIQ At about 7:30 into the lecture, the professor says that every human society in history that has produced a surplus of goods (more than what is needed for the simple maintenance of the economy)...

Re: How are humans different with other species?

Animals are in tune with what they experience in the present and react to present conditions. If an animal sees a strange light in the sky, the animal may be temporarily startled but will go back to doing what it was doing if the light has no immediate effect. Humans will ponder the light and specu...

Re: How are humans different with other species?

Humans are known to have a consciousness and common sense and traits, these traits are known to be passed down in the DNA. We get all biological structure from DNA, and so does every other species. However.. You do not get to understand the Mona Lisa by looking at the chemical composition of paint....

Re: 'Speech Acts' Relevant to 'Is-Ought' Problem.

The concept of 'Speech Acts' is relevant to the 'Is-Ought' Problem. In Searle's derivation of 'Ought from Is' argument he relied on the concept of 'Speech Acts' to support his justifications. https://forum.philosophynow.org/viewtopic.php?p=462615#p462615 Re what is Speech Act , The concept of speec...

Re: The Whole Story

I agree that Advocate's project is unrealistic, and probably of not much use. I also agree he needs a good grounding in what already exists, like Copleston, which is not philosophy itself, but a history of it (with a very Catholic prejudice) and a bit heavy, or at least a History of Western Philoso...

Re: Defunding Police

Please refer to the remarks I made about you earlier. The remarks you made about me are a projection of your own internal state of being. The same is true with 'stupid racist moron' as only a stupid moron can possibly "believe" that Islam is a race, let alone a religion. Dividing humanity on the ba...

Re: Defunding Police

The entire 'defund the police' movement is but one component of Islamic jihad. Stupid moron. Lol we know you are - it is called drawing from your own nature and scapegoating it onto others because one can not account for their own internal state of being (Cain, tiller of the soil). This same condit...

Re: Defunding Police

Hmm. Maybe a bit like calling someone a "shit-turd" or a "dick-penis" or something. However, when you're really foot-stomping angry, sometimes it just takes more than that one expletive to really capture the feeling in a way that adequately inflicts the desired amount of emotional pain, I suppose. ...

Re: How to deal with a friend who thinks COVID 19 is a hoax

What do you care? If you choose to swallow the popular view that we're all going to die unless we all wear a half-bra on our face and never hug anyone we love, Childish exaggeration does not become you. No one is saying that; no one beleives it. There are some of us who are likely to die were they ...
