Re: No Safe Spaces

Bahman The feeling is emotion. Faith is the state of believing in something. Hope is about our positive antisippation of the future. What is the meaning? Actually faith IN something or someone is an emotion. However the quality of faith which enables a person to remain conscious of the forest and no...

Re: No Safe Spaces

Bahman Can you even define meaning if it is not feeling? There is no offense in what I wrote. Moreover, I didn't write that duty is an abstract feeling. Emotions are animal in nature and can be either positive or negative. Mother love for example is a positive emotion while revenge is a negative emo...

Re: No Safe Spaces

That (the bold part) is the duty rather than meaning. You cannot know your duty until you first accept what gives you meaning and inspires duty. Yes, you can. People do their duty all the time but due to feeling rather than meaning. That is close to being a reportable offense. Duty is no longer an ...

Re: No Safe Spaces

The meaning is that there is no such thing as meaning. The new Great God has provided your meaning. Your meaning and purpose is to serve the whims of the new Great God. You have the right to remain silent. Nothing else is tolerated. Disobey and you will be canceled. Society must eliminate the troub...

Re: No Safe Spaces

You guys don't get it. God is dead so there is no objective meaning for human life. Philosophy and the need for meaning is dead since advanced technology discovered through science provides all the meaning one needs. The day a scientist proves we can overcome the ever onset increase in entropy, the...

Re: What are the Benefits of Theism?

Tillingborn Nobody, and certainly not me, is arguing that anyone believes a thing they already believe isn't true for aesthetic reasons. Men do it all the time. It is the foundation for the cosmetic industry. They enjoy believing in what women pretend to be for the man's aesthetic belief in beauty a...

Re: No Safe Spaces

Finally young minds who demand for your own good that you have the right to remain silent are being supported. Now the creation of a "Reality czar" is being contemplated. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/02/02/technology/biden-reality-crisis-misinformation.html Several experts I spoke with recommended t...

Re: Love and Liberty

Love and Liberty The folly of modern morality is in binary thinking, and supposing that Love and Liberty are the defining values of a moral society. Love is opposed to hate, and this is not a value, but a decision that everyone must make about what they apply it to. An ‘evil’ person may indeed love...

No Safe Spaces

Nietzsche wrote that God is dead and we have killed him. Stephen Hawking said that Philosophy is dead. Science has killed it. Speaking to Google’s Zeitgeist Conference in Hertfordshire, the author of ‘A Brief History of Time’ said that fundamental questions about the nature of the universe could not...

Re: Religion without Ethics

V A I am optimistic humanity will be able to rewire the average human brain in the near future to facilitate moral progress and enable morality and ethics to be independent from religions. Along the way, all religions will be weaned off and replaced with fool proof self-development programs to deal ...

Re: Was Marx Right

Quite true. If the universal meaning and purpose of human life on earth were understood, it would be earth shattering. Machines could serve Man rather than Man serving machines in Plato's cave. We don't have to worry about it since the educated would never allow this quality of understanding. So the...

Re: Were The Byrds Right?

"There is a time for every purpose under heaven." is an entirely meaningless statement. Is there a time for that song to be logically inaccurate? All life follows the cycles of life. It is born, matures, reproduces, and dies. It is considered a meaningless statement. Who can find meaning in somethi...

Re: Was Marx Right

So which is it? Does our consciousness determine our existence or does the quality of our existence determine our consciousness? If Marx is right mankind is the Great Beast which must be conditioned by society with the goal of producing utopia. If Plato and the essence of Christianity are right, Ma...
