According to the presiding court, which sentenced him to death, he had been teaching radical ideas to youth, including atheism, which got him the chair.

But in his defence, Plato said he believed in demi-gods, which is logically impossible to conceive, if there were no gods.

The jury did not buy this. He had to drink hemlock.

What Plato believed about gods was his own business. But if you want to know, he enjoyed praying, his belly-button licked, poetry, light housework (no ironing), knitting and putting away fruit compote.
Well, what do you know. I mixed up Plato and Socrates.

My ole' Philosophy teacher in grade three is turning in his grave.

I brought shame upon me, my head, my family and my nation - nay, upon the entire litarate western culture.

I shalt sit in ashes, and rent and tear my clothes and howl at the empty moon with darkened tongue.

your post of Platos fate was is the same as Socratis - i was not informed that Plato was executed.

maybe you error in the Plato/Socratise thing( diff men with diff fates and you error in equating them as the same prior man Socratise), or i'm just ignorant of Plato's fate?.which if what you say is true was the same as his mentor.

yep, thus the need for a counter argument/vision.

just saying "you are wrong" does not offer a supperior vision.

refer to my prior post - befor i read this one. owning up give you credit!

yes, shame upon you Sir! - now you have repented and humbled, and with contritness, can re-join us other mortals in disscussing Plato's fate.

.............is there a record of his death? - if not, i think we can assume he died in peace like Aristotle (they were contempories - i find it odd that there is no (AFAIK) of the other from either (prob likely were was - and works/mention of fellow disiples of Socratise were lost forever via alexander library burning.

i'm too fking lazy to spell check - bying dyslexic - you can figure it out.

I'm pretty sure we don't need that record to be sure that he is dead.

The only two people who survived their own deaths --- not via resurrection, but by simply not dying, in many people's fear, hope, and belief --- are Adolf Hitler and Elvis Presley.

and Jim Morrison.

but more to your point - negating those persons. i think your reply would be more apt of the names are Enoch and Elijah.

thanks for reply nonetheless.
