Re: Are You Enjoying You Life?

Of course you do not have to think that. I think most people do not believe there is a direct connection between what they believe that determines their choices and the consequences of their choices and actions. If someone is not living, "to the letter of their philosophy," they must believe their ...

Re: Those Who Justify Genocide

Interesting how few posts relate to the article. We have someone raging about Israel and someone else claiming the Poles are traduced and even claiming that betraying Jews who stole food was justified. The facts (that Israel is a modest oasis in a sea of backwardness and hate,... Yes. A safe haven....

Re: Are You Enjoying You Life?

I seriously do not think that these two things are connected necessarily, since we rarely live to the letter of our philosophy and its rightness in terms of reason and logic may well not lead to a happy outcome. Of course you do not have to think that. I think most people do not believe there is a ...

Re: L'Age B'Or encore.

It's not an assumption at all; it is demonstrably the case that you do not understand that the same evidence can support different hypotheses. Do you at least understand that evidence and proof are not the same thing? The cause of greatest confusion when trying to make distinction between matter of...

Re: L'Age B'Or encore.

See, this is the bit you don't understand. Wow that is one HUGE ASSUMPTION you just made, based on just a very few words of mine. It's not an assumption at all; it is demonstrably the case that you do not understand that the same evidence can support different hypotheses. Do you at least understand...

Re: Are You Enjoying You Life?

If you are not enjoying your life there is something wrong with your philosophy. People can have marvelous philosophies and never follow them. The angst of living is most often because of a series of duties and obligations that people accept through social and peer pressure that often fly against t...

Heh. :D

You know nothing. Not only don't you know what Jesus said, or what feudalism etc. mean, but most remarkably, not even anything about Karl Marx.

I see I'm speaking into a hollow vessel. I shall desist.
Take your ignorance of Marx with you.

Re: Portrait of an American Hero

And tell me, where is it that Jesus was put into practice? Wherever He has been, it's always been a benefit....social betterment, prison reform, anti-slavery initiatives, medical missions, charitable causes, business ethics, children's rights, women's rights, and human rights generally, hospitals, ...

Re: Portrait of an American Hero

That's the funniest thing you've said yet. :D That is only because of your crass ignorance. No, no...inform me more. I need to be taught.
