    Have u ever done a nazi salute

    I probably did once, as an interjection to a comedic situation. Something like trying to invoke a fidelity in a dark-humor way.

    Scientism: Belief & Assumption

    It was more of a epistomological debate and an attack on the social sciences to be exact. Scientism died out in the 50s, it's not really something that's contemporary. After this people had nothing to talk about which is why postmodernism came about. I mean putting it very loosely >>...

    What do you think more defines humanity: our will or our ability to rationalize?

    If we didnt compare ourselves to animals, what's more us, our will or our wit? I guess what I'm more asking is what the essence of humanity is.

    Scientism: Belief & Assumption

    You know there was a whole philosophical movement in the early 1900s about this (logical positivism), which was pretty much obliterated by Karl Popper and Thomas Kuhn.

    What do you think more defines humanity: our will or our ability to rationalize?

    What do you think sets us apart from other animals more? Our wills- a desire for dominance, power, grit and glory, or our ability to rationalize- to plan ahead, strategize, contemplate and scrutinize? What is more us, will or wit?

    Avengers: infinity war

    So I watched the movie when I was sick using.. non-theater means, but the impression I got from the movie wasn't completely positive. Maybe it was due to the fact that I was sick and that I was in a shitty mood, but I didn't really enjoy the movie as much as I should have. There was a lot of...

    The stupidity of the theism/atheism debate.

    The stupidity of the theism/atheism debate.

    To be fair sexual misconduct in church, any church, is a meme now and not something thats actually pervasive. I mean out of the millions of priests what percentage do you think theyve actually done something? My guess is probably not a lot, though its certainly alarming that people youre...

    The stupidity of the theism/atheism debate.

    Are concepts like 'humanity' 'beauty' and moral concepts such as 'justice' and good and evil also bound to material objects? How about belongingness? What determines citizenship to a country or allegiance to a certain ideological group or creed? Is it 'bound' to us materialistically?

    The stupidity of the theism/atheism debate.

    Hrm I think saint aqunias 'five ways' are pretty good arguments for a 'god' existing. Whatever we find that was the 'first cause' or the 'first mover' is 'god' though this wouldn't entail that he is personal or even intercessional. Since we're talking about the western tradition of who 'god' is...

    How would you define pride?

    I was reading some Augustine and he defines pride as "the assumption of self-sufficiency". This struck me a bit because I always had imagined that pride was a positive, as in a thriving and existing emotion, rather than an neutral assumption. Pride I had always thought was something that was...

    humor me for a moment

    Whewt I finally got around to reading the thread, so I'll add on from here: What could we surmise what this source is, and to what extent should we pass onto the next generation our current values and existential judgments? For example, would it be apt to say that finding meaning in life is...

    Eastern versus Western Philosophy

    To add on to what Serac said, historically I think the East never "killed their Kings" so to speak, like how the Parliament usurped power from the English Crown and how the French guillotined theirs. The Russians practically did the same too, later on. In the East, the "West" did that for them...

    How valid is the Malthus trap today

    Overpopulation isn't really a problem because whenever the quality of life goes up the birth rates go down- drastically. Take Japan or Korea for instance. Japan used to have riots because of a shortage of rice due to overpopulation during the late 18th century and early 19th (around the setting...

    Friendships

    I find that trying to practice "a technical empathy" a great way to avoid isolation and a good way to exercise your knowledge and intelligence. What I mean by technical empathy is that, ask what a person is made up of, not physically but in turns of goals, motivations, personalities and...

    First off its really welcoming to see this kind of topic and secondly I'll try to read everyones posts, but to just quickly jot my thoughts: I think it would have a huge impact on language and that "religion" or theism most likely in this case, would be replaced by a philosopical humanism which...

    Has anyone read Sapiens?

    What are your thoughts on the book? A lot of the students on campus seem to reading this book lately, so I was wondering if anyone on this forum has as well. Did you like it? Knowing that a lot of us already know a lot of materials related to evolutionary psychology, religion and philosophy, did...

    It’s my birthday

    I like this one: It is the way I can relish a line of poetry, laud it like a teenage girl in love, and have missed that the rhymes aren't right. The prose is deep purple. This "poet" has no; idea what a semicolon is or when to break a line--and it becomes readily apparent that...

    Last movie you watched

    The biggest problem I think in The Last Jedi was that there wasn't a coherent overarching theme. Like in Rouge One (good movie regardless of what people think) had a theme of sacrifice in it, while something like Revenge of the Sith had something like mistrust. In TLJ the theme isn't so cleanly...

    About to see The Last Jedi. Will write about it later. Don't have too much high expectations for this movie. *MAJOR SPOILERS* Okay well.. yeah it was... not so good. Nothing about the movie was compelling at all. The scale of the story was bad too. Basically the entire film revolves around...

    Dietrich Bonhoeffer's letter against facism, excerpt

    That part I think is more awaking the spiritual, moral side of the human being, and not trying to sign up someone for bible study to recruit them into certain political rallies and so on. The catchwords and slogans themselves mentioned there lack the very substance Bonhoeffer thinks will lead to...

    Dietrich Bonhoeffer's letter against facism, excerpt

He was actively against the Nazi party and eventually he was captured and...

    How much would you kill for?

    It probably depends on the method of killing and whether or not I'll have it on my conscious. If it's like knifing someone I'd probably nope out of there. If it's like shooting someone like a quarter mile away and not seeing the corpse hmm maybe. Realistically I'd probably do it for a grand...

    Incest

    Hmm I read somewhere that incest doesn't cause as much defects, but a quick google search says otherwise. The rate of defects is to the point where abortion commonly comes into the question, meaning there actually is another moral obligation to not commit incest or not.
  37. onesteptwostep

    Incest

    There's really no moral obligation for objecting incest other than the fact that humans have a natural, offending disposition to it, called the Westermarck effect. We're just following our natural (non-)impulses in that regard.

    Thinking in another language

    The subject object verb order really doesn't change the way you think at all, nor do kanji readers or alphabet readers. The way you think in another language changes because of the cultural contexts that come with the language. For example, I would say that if you think in Korean you become more...

    New way of tackling teleology, ontology?
