Re: What is art?

What is happening when my brain converts the sound vibrations of a Mozart sonata or Maria Callas aria into electrical signals and experiences them? Why does it generate a nice feeling, pleasure? Also, the sensation of joy does not need anyone else to be present, not even the performer. Other than e...

Re: What could make morality objective?

What you offer humans as a right you deny to the humble eelworm. That is so stupid beyond common sense. All you have here is a series of half baked opinions. There you go again, abusing the term 'opinion' [as defined] whereas I have provided empirical evidences supported with rational philosophical...

Re: What could make morality objective?

It is obviously not an opinion as defined and as accepted generally. That is shifting the goal post. If you are insistent I would say "the need for oxygen" is critical or else it is death. There are loads of moral facts and oughts other than the need to breathe. I derived the moral fact from the Mo...

Re: What could make morality objective?

" ALL human[s] ought to prevent other humans from breathing till they die ." How can this be an opinion [as defined]? That opinion is not more valid than the converse. Let me show you where you are going wrong. It is obviously not an opinion as defined and as accepted generally. You have stated tha...

Re: Sick until proven healthy

The left or establishment has created a new class of people, the sick . The last time I looked, it was the RIGHT that is in charge right now; Trump, Boris, Scott Morrison in Australia. Last time I looked, in fact everytime I looked, even when the left had people in power the RIGHT - the establishme...

Re: Science Is All Lies: Prove me wrong

Hi. I believe that the sciences are purely human inventions and when we impose upon them the status of 'truth' we falsify them with our oversized egos. They can't really exist outside of our little heads. I think you overstate your claim. And since you have not asserted a thing that offers a "proof...

Re: What is Wisdom in Atheist Philosophy?

"Atheist Philosophy", is whatever philosophy a particular atheist has. Could be almost anything as long as it includes some kind of skepticism enough to have thought about the idea of god and rejected it. It's not the rejection of the god-idea that makes atheists stupid. By rejecting the God-idea t...

Re: What is Wisdom in Atheist Philosophy?

And since we are discussing the thread, it's not only me that has pointed out that there is no such thing as "Atheist Philosophy". O Is it just philosophy? a love of something? Certainly not Wisdom as defined ONLY by: reason, knowledge, information and experience. "Atheist Philosophy", is whatever ...

Re: What is Wisdom in Atheist Philosophy?

Chaz - don't matter wot we want or need, ultimately it is what is an ultimate result that matters - I've experienced HELL not crossing that ledge again. The very fact that as an atheist you are aware of such matters, means you too are owned by the judgement. tuff tits - atheist\theist it matters no...

Re: What could make morality objective?

As I had stated earlier; The empirical and moral fact is; "ALL humans ought to breathe else they die." The objective moral absolute in this case is; "No human ought to prevent another human from breathing" The above are the moral features of an empirical moral realist. Name me one if you disagree. ...
