My apologies. I mistook you for a philosopher. It won't happen again.

Re: Time to say Hi!

continuation 13. Has anyone read Dr. Ian Stevenson's work on reincarnation? Is reincarnation possible? Nope and very doubtful. If you have not read the work, then why are you responding? Do you have another authority on reincarnation? Is this a religious conviction? Or are you responding in ignoranc...

Re: Time to say Hi!

[quote="Arising_uk"]Gee, 1. The difference between life and AI. Is it mostly about "want"? I think so. What AI? Any AI (artificial intelligence) This is what I'm asking you, what AI? Let alone "any". Please point me towards an AI? This is going nowhere, so we will not discuss (1.) 2. Levels of consc...

Re: Internet Pornography

Images of the man and the woman having sex were discovered by his "real" wife. This man's marriage collapsed because of this unreal yet real sexual encounter. This is nonsense. Sex in a marriage is many things. It is passionate and innocent, it is dominating and submissive, it is angry and joyful, ...

Re: Time to say Hi!

Arising_uk; Thank you for your responses and for taking the time to investigate further. I hope that this means that you have a sincere interest in the subject of consciousness, and that it does not mean that you are simply trying to pin down my thoughts so that you can find a way to refute them. Co...

Re: Internet Pornography

Felasco; As usual, it is a thought-provoking pleasure to read what you write. I would add to your words another perspective. While we are working to understand and tame this virtual world, what is happening to our skills in the real world? Every family that I know spends between $100 and $300 every ...

Re: Connecticut School Massacre - pass the ammunition

What I would like to know, is what changed? And what caused this change? What change(s) would improve the situation? Because we can never go back to the way it used to be--as that is a hopeless romanticism. So when did guns go from being personal protection to power? I think that this started in the...

Good people die all of the time, and stupid people die quicker.

A sound statement not diminished by television news teams and mass media.

Re: Connecticut School Massacre - pass the ammunition

BTW - the owner of those guns was also a really decent person, now she is dead. Do you know this? As far as I have heard, no one saw the actual attack on the mother. Are you sure that the son got a gun and shot her, or could she have gotten the gun because she was afraid of him. Then he took it awa...

Re: Connecticut School Massacre - pass the ammunition

Is it true the Bill of Rights legally only protects white men? If so, is this Bill not antiquated? So it would have included American Indians, African Americans and women? In the 1700s? Very liberal for the time. First I would like to talk about the Bill of Rights as there seems to be some confusio...

Re: Time to say Hi!

Nice rant Gee, your views basically agree with my own solipsistic interpretation of consciousness, it all seemed to take form with the word. It's ironic that I should quote from the bible, -- In the beginning was the word --and then introduce the post-modern field of semantics as a guide towards ma...

Like everyone else, the NRA is capable of having really bad ideas.
