Re: An Answer to Pilate

Is it true that being an amoralistic alethic deist means never having to say you're sorry ? Daphne rides again. The start of a Truth Trilogy ? First paragraph: “What is truth?” Pilate asked. (John 18:38) What if anything would be lost if we stopped talking about truth? This question has come to the ...

Thanks for all time and energy spent - real good of ya' :) prof, any chance of you - or anyone - venturing forth to comment on the PN article: Moral Law...

Re: Building a good Ethical theory

I know the discussion has moved on; however, I feel Skip deserves a response. So, here goes: Current reply is in bolds and quote boxes. S: The people who make a fresh start will need to co-operate more .... M: Doesn't that rather depend on what resources are available. If scarce, then there will be ...

Re: Moral Laws of the Jungle

The author: You see, in the jungle, the way I reconcile my interests with those of other people is not for all of us to pour everything we care about into a pot then see which of the combination of satisfied wants would generate the most happiness (benefit). If we did that, I could be completely out...

Re: Moral Laws of the Jungle

The author: Empathy is one-to-one, since we only imagine ourselves in the mind of one other person at a time. Even when I empathise with ‘the people’ here – for example when I hear about the difficulties all the women face finding clean water – I am really imagining what it is like to be just one wo...

Re: Moral Laws of the Jungle

Thanks for posting. Had a quick read; felt quite sugary. The 'Help Principle'... This leads to a principle which is simple but central: Help someone if your time and effort is worth more to them than it is to you. This principle, let’s call it ‘the Help Principle’, is at the core of ethics – in Brit...

Re: Is religion guilty of moving the goalposts?

That's not what you stated at the beginning, IC: Quite true. I confess I was a little to willing to "play ball," so to speak, and therefore did not reflect sufficiently on the implications of joining the game. Mickthinks has pointed out to me my oversight. I should, perhaps, have been more reluctan...

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT OF NEW EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY

Seems prof is the same person as "deepthot/thinkdr" He provides a similar babble ethics writing, with his nonsensicle S I and L values. He makes comparison to concepts and objects unlrelating to ethics and moral, too long and too talkative. I don't know who 'deepthot/thinkdr' is; however, there are...

Re: Building a good Ethical theory

Yes, yes - we all know about this pamphlet; some have even read it and offered criticism which you ignore. Pretty sure I did at some point; and got nowhere fast. So, no - I will not be re-reading, thanks. { The continual repetition of threads - seems to be a favourite ploy of some on this forum - si...

Re: Why there can't be peace in this era

WL's OP: The reason why the world cannot have peace is because of globalization. I doubt there has ever been peace in the world. I doubt that the world will ever know peace. Recent globalisation is not the cause of war. Humans are. WL: Will there be peace in the future? Maybe. But as of now, it can ...
