Re: The Existential Crisis

What he is missing is that the human experience (qualia) is defining the bands. As far as physics goes its a smooth analogue of differential wavelengths and no colour exists in nature. What you are missing is that I am not missing any of that. My experiences don't come in boxes/bands - unlike yours...

So "red" is all the waves which have 625–740 nanometers wavelength, but this is the crux of it; and the crux of all human categori...

Re: What accounts for Western high death rates?

This thing aint done yet. Its a little early to ask this question since the virus is yet to start subsequent phases. But looking at the basic spread it might have more to do with the circumstantial factors. Air flights from China first brought the virus to Italy Spain and the UK who were caught with...

Re: What is a Fact?

I have stated glaringly over hundreds of posts and above, the moral facts as justified from empirical evidence and philosophical reasoning Once again what you are failing to consider is the value system which you inevitably have to insert BETWEEN the evidence and the moral code; the opinion with wh...

Re: What is a Fact?

You don't get the point. Yes, I do get the point. You want to impose your idiosyncratic moral code upon everyone on the grounds that you are "normal" and everyone else "ought" to comply with your wishes. You are 100% laughable. NOPE! You did not get the point. Yes, I am a 'normal' human being, i.e....

Re: Was Judas a hero and most trusted disciple, or a traitor?

Myths try to cover various themes. Who can say, with all the alterations and plagiarisations just what was originally meant? Regards DL Yes myths are retold and the intent is based on the moment of the telling. The myth is something selected for a purpose - to tell a story, or offer moral advice. I...

Re: What is Wrong with me (my malfunction)????

You are clueless. Look into what was happening in Manchuria. Russia had the largest army assembled in history and had taken the whole of Manchuria is two days. But obviously Japan was not concerned about Russia!!! LOL It was Russia that ended the war on Europe and it was Russia that ending the war ...

IF killing is not necessary for the purpose at hand, then the only reason you would choose to kill is for killing's sake.
I think the most salient point I made above it this..

Re: The Evolution of Religion

No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it. Albert Einstein ... It does seem that the evolution of religion has stopped due to collective attachment to technology. Imitating the living experience is far more attractive than living it. So collective consciousness r...

Re: The Evolution of Religion

It looks to me too that religion is not longer evolving. I hope and pray man is now experiencing pains of new birth not approaching death. Nick's quotation from Ecclesiastes is the sort of thing DontAskMe says. Cyclical time is undoctrinal surely? There is no room in here for two. There is only ONE...

Re: Was Judas a hero and most trusted disciple, or a traitor?

FTPOV, Jesus was too much of a coward to tell his Temple authorities to bite him when turning himself in. Nonsense! To be crucified and "resurrected" was the ultimate trick to fool the naive and gullible that how has echoed for 2k years, he only hung there for 6 h when you LEAST hang there for a we...

Re: What is a Fact?

So you don't care about the end-goal (purpose?) of killing. You think killing for killing's sake is useful. Strawman. You can't expect to be taken serious by employing such an obvious and childish strategy. I'm not surprised you love Trump. He's a idiot too. When you kill yourself for utility's sak...

Re: What is a Fact?

Yes actually. If killing is useful for a particular outcome, a world where that outcome is achievable without killing is better than a world where that outcome is achievable with killing. No. I said no and I mean it. So you don't care about the end-goal (purpose?) of killing. You think killing for ...
