A consistent basis to meaningful happiness will lead to a meaningful life. The fundamental of life is driven by either pleasure [in degrees - happiness] or pain. Evolutionary and fundamentally whatever aligns with the purpose of life [whatever that is] will trigger pleasure, joy and happiness. Being...

Re: Theism is Analogical to "Dying for Breath"

Theism is Analogical to "Dying for Breath" The evidences and proofs for the above is very glaring. Note the extent* theists are willing to go to defend their theism. * extent of ranging from minor defensive actions [confirmation biases, irrational arguments, deflections, denials] to the extreme of d...

Theism is Analogical to "Dying for Breath"

Theism is Analogical to "Dying for Breath" Hypothesis; Dying for Breath triggers an existential crisis where one will do whatever it takes [even to the extent of 'evil' ] to get back one's breath. DNA wise ALL humans has an inherent existential crisis - Mortality is a Certainty. A God who can promi...

Re: Islam Means Peace?

You should do something about your obsession. It's not healthy. Why the fuss? This is only a discussion in a philosophical forum. It would be different if I carry a placard and walk around Times Square every day or shout about it in Speaker's Corner [London]. What I have commented and critiqued is ...

Re: Mind and physical

Are Yin and Yang something or they are illusion? Yin & Yang are things/elements i.e. as principles of substantiating the emergence of reality in one perspective.

Re: ALL is an Illusion

Time is an illusion and it persists. Let's say there are no clocks. Still there is morning, afternoon and night. Yes. But you need an experiencer who is able to cause the illusion that we perceive so called material. Are you saying that in morning there is no afternonn and night? No, but we have to...

Re: ALL is an Illusion

You missed my point. There is only one state of affair at any given moment thus the two state cannot coexist. Why not, a state of ice co-exists as a state of a cluster/bundle of H20 molecules at the same time albeit from different perspectives. By state I mean a given configuration of physical. Ice...

Re: The greatest imaginable is much less than the greatest possible -- Anselm fails

Your claim is no different from the schizo who claimed the gnomes in his garden exist as living entities because he had a direct conversation with them. But the gnomes in my garden do exist? Would you like some photos? Maybe he was mistaken about the 'conversation'. I doubt it was more than a monol...

Re: A Modust Proposal

It was you who deviated into commenting about the philosophical competence of others [me included by implication]. Thus my venture to point out what is 'philosophy-proper' to differentiate it from the incestuous academic philosophy, arm-chair philosophy, etc. You don't think what you are doing is a...

Re: A Modust Proposal

You think you can add "-proper" to the end of the word philosophy and start telling me what philosophy is? I completely disagree with your quote, in fact, I think it's just poetry. Philosophy renders our minds great like the greatness of the universe? It would be pointless of me to then tell you wh...

Re: Explaining Everything Explains Nothing

Since they are conditioned they cannot be absolutely absolute. Absolute = totally unconditioned. You say abso...
