Re: Critiquing the "Skeptics"

I believe that looking deeper into these things ("psychic/paranormal phenomena and homeopathy") may actually give us a deeper understanding of ourselves and how the world works. It's only because modern science relies too heavily on empiricism that they are simply dismissed as "quackery" or "crackp...

Re: Karl Marx (1818-1883)

But I have a question for CL and uwot. CL claims above that workers are being exploited. That seems to be a basic assumption in his, or in Marx's, belief system. It's not really a question for me, but since you ask: I think it is worth remembering that in 1848, when the Communist manifesto was publ...

Re: Law enforced by nincompoops

School stuff is only having good memory, and doesn't equal having high rationallity, why Rain Men can do brilliantly in school, because there's no abstract viables, to be actually intelligent requires high rationallity why seemingly less intelligent people who flonked school, do well in buisness li...

Re: Karl Marx (1818-1883)

You are like a religious person devoid of reality, how the holy scribtures has been interpeted, and you selectivly interpet the scribtures in the most idyllic way possible. Then you accuse everybody else of being misinformed, misunderstanding everything about your interpetation and you live in the ...

Re: SCIENTIA!

You are again still ignoring the fact that Richard Feynman still didn't answer any of the questions regarding magnetism, whether it be "why it works" or "what are its interactions". On the contrary, WanderingLands. Not only have I ceded that Richard Feynman doesn't know why magnetism or QM work, I ...

Re: Why do Conditional Semantics matter?

My question then is the following: why should we care as philosophers what the true semantics for indicative conditionals are, especially given that we can always mitigate ambiguity/logical issues with natural language (in particular, by specifying our our own semantics for the conditionals we utte...

Re: SCIENTIA!

No, it is really you who missed the point, which was that the fact that the scientific establishment is run by individuals who can't even answer what magnetism or energy is, let alone even understand what Quantum Mechanics is, WanderingLands, do you understand the difference between these statement...

Re: SCIENTIA!

This goes back to my point about Feynman and the scientific establishment: they are merely just dogmatists You have completely missed the point of all those quotes: science doesn't know; it does not give dogmatic answers; it does not pretend to tell the Truth. The truth about science is that it can...

Re: SCIENTIA!

Why yes, it's about showing but it's also about telling, as in explaining the logic of it, which is what the people of the scientific establishment, like Richard Feynmann and others, seem to have a real hard time about. Which books of Richard Feynman have you read, and where did you struggle? Perha...

Re: SCIENTIA!

I'll read it in its entirely Good luck with that, Ginkgo. I gave it a go, but didn't get far before I started skimming. It's vaguely plausible, but the problem is, WanderingLands, that like you, the author doesn't understand how physics works. Roughly speaking, in any theory there are three element...

Re: Karl Marx (1818-1883)

The written word is what he said, everything else is hallusinations that allows it to be interpeted by madmen in all kinds of weird ways, which is very dangerous, and you still denies the devestating results. You are in sever denial of the tragic consequenses. People are like that, Mr Hammer. Madme...

Re: Karl Marx (1818-1883)

LOL! Let me try say this as delicate as I can ..you are a fucking retard, I have made specific quotes, linked to articles, yet you are still in denial. Not really, Mr Hammer, I have acknowledged the article by Ronald R. Cherry. That appears to be the only source you have read; in which case you can...

Re: Karl Marx (1818-1883)

I have proven my point, it's just you who are in denial. Well if you can't manage the entire works of Karl Marx, this thread should be more manageable. Show the point you think you have proved and the proof for it. You havn't pointed out where or why I don't know what I'm talking about... Here you ...

Re: Karl Marx (1818-1883)

Then it should be easy to disprove, if I am so wrong about it. I'm not sure what you think I need to disprove, Mr Hammer. The issue is that you are pretending to know what Karl Marx said, despite it being quite clear that you have no idea what you are talking about. As proof of that, I offer the en...

Re: Karl Marx (1818-1883)

Thanks for the link, Mr Hammer. It appears to have been written by a right wing nut called Ronald R. Cherry for a fringe publication called Right Side News. Do you seriously think that is the place to discover what Marx actually said? Read the last part of my former post again, I really tryed to be ...
