Re: Is the Critique of Islam Islamophobic?

No. "Islamophobia" is a projection of the fear within the House of Islam twofold: i. Irrational fear by Muslims of Allah (being a concoction of Muhammad) ii. Rational fear by leaders of Islam who are deliberately covering up problems with Islam: the Qur'an (ie. so-called perfection is actually a blo...

Re: Conscious Knowledge of Ignorance

(As an aside, my preference would be to use the word, “testing”, where you have used “trying”.) It's a good point to make: the theorem takes "trying" and "testing" as the same overall function (despite being distinct operatives) - like a teeter-totter of give/take between trying/testing. It may be ...

I Think, Therefor I Am (confused!)

I think, therefor I am. -Descartes I see two fundamental problems. i. one can not think less they exist, and ii. one could not even begin to think less having knowingly been born in the mind as a thought: "I think, therefor I am!" It is comically absurd to me. But it highlights a fundamental proble...

Re: Conscious Knowledge of Ignorance

Free will is the ability to choose between any alternative position that exists outside of any self imposed boundary conditions Everyone has such conditions so while free will is restricted by them it is still something that can be exercised to some degree Does free will not imply the absence of su...

Re: Conscious Knowledge of Ignorance

I usually just ask the question; WHY believe or disbelieve any thing? I neither believe or disbelieve any thing. I also do not like to assume any thing, but I sometimes do fail at this as I sometimes fall back into the bad habit and have not consciously been aware of making an assumption. I neither...

Re: Conscious Knowledge of Ignorance

My philosophical speciality, which is not a good way of putting it but will do nonetheless, is circularity. I observe cycles within arguments. You can look at the majority of any post or thread I made and see this as present. So that is the angle I am coming from. Interesting - I can't help but sen...

Re: Knowledge is EVIL

The 'original sin' was eating from the 'tree of knowledge'. That is the real sin, the 'original sin' was eating knowledge, and now that apple is stuck in every ones throat. Sin has nothing to do with your acts, moral, or immoral. Sin has something to do with a Knowledge that has been misinterpreted...

Re: Conscious Knowledge of Ignorance

All knowing is belief, but not all belief is knowing. to be further begging of a modification of belief: All belief is ignorance, but not all ignorance is belief. This should be obvious to anyone who understands what knowing is and what believing is. Most would express the following, in their own w...

Re: Knowledge is EVIL

If so-called satan *requires* "belief"-in-and-of-itself would that any/all "believer" "believe": i. evil is good / good is evil ii. satan is god / god is satan iii. "belief"-in-and-of-itself is a virtue(???) ...would it not follow that any/all knowledge must include any/all *not* to "believe" on the...

Conscious Knowledge of Ignorance

Hello, greetings. First and forever foremost: let there be peace. This is my first post thus as a forewarning: please forgive the unorthodox style owing to the author having absolutely none. I am currently working on a theorem that I would like to have falsified (if it can be, so it must be). It pre...
