Re: What could make morality objective?

NOPE, framework of knowledge are not theories. That may be the way you see it, but the way I see it EVERYTHING is a theory. Theory of frameworks. Theory of theories. As Sculptor points out - a theory is a system. What's a system? Do you have a theory of systems? I do: * The informal version: https:...

Re: What could make morality objective?

You are taking too long to get to the point. Philosophy too is a framework. Framework for what? Frameworks are theories. Say we have a framework/theory of knowledge. What is knowledge used for? What are frameworks/theories used for? NOPE, framework of knowledge are not theories. Note the example, t...

Re: What could make morality objective?

OK, I can reconcile with 'descriptive context' but I insist 'Framework of Knowledge' is more critical and relevant. You are taking too long to get to the point. Philosophy too is a framework.

Re: The Existential Crisis

My thesis did not insist it MUST happen, i.e. the existential crisis/dilemma MUST lead to theism. My thesis is the origin and cause of theism is driven by the existential crisis/dilemma traceable to the DNA/RNA. Therefore a genuine-clinging [not pretending] to theism is traceable to the existential...

Re: What could make morality objective?

Very simply : we cannot know the future So we therefore dont know which facts that are true now will not be true at some other point in time New knowledge is waiting to be discovered but until it is discovered we wont actually know what it is A fact does not change. Anything that is a fact is a fac...

Re: What could make morality objective? 2

Your theory of frameworks doesn't do the work that you think it does. Agreed, any description - and therefore any truth-claim - is within a descriptive context, with a conventional use of signs. So what we mean when we say a factual assertion is true is what constitutes what we call truth - and the...

Re: The Existential Crisis

My argument and model can be tested [and verified]. Where we can manage and modulate the subliminal fears 'caused' by the DNA/RNA, the subject will let go of theism, as in Buddhist practices [mindfulness] and others who had converted out of theism. The above is already done in practice within Buddh...

Re: do people choose their religion?

If most humans live and die with the religion that they are born with from their family or society that they didn't choose, how come God rewards/punishes us for something that we didn't even choose? Of course we can choose our "religion." If we couldn't, nobody could change his/her mind, or convert...

Re: The Existential Crisis

Correlation is a link but not a cause. You are linked to your uncle but caused by your dad. So did you write link because you cannot demonstrate causation (which would be unusually perspicacious on your part) in which case your whole argument is worhtless junk with no strict conclusion... Or did yo...
