Re: LATEST SHOW: Mystical Christianity - Father Peter Bowes

why did you remove those "unattributed quotes"??? If you wanted the links I could have given them. Seems to be a case of insecure censorship. I grant that if we were created by some kind of alien being, it could just be that they simply re-used the same parts in making different animals, because the...

Re: Empiricism vs. Logic

I have no idea what you mean by "personal science". There is either science, which is about things which can be objectively measured, and which are verifiable by others, or there is philosophy, which is a personal thing and which concerns only one's own observations. Science is uncertain whereas ph...

If Faust's "yardstick" for women is their crying - he'd be stuffed - for they joyfully cry when sad, or happy, or frightened, or tired, or hurt, or lonely, or jealous, or excited, or hormonal, or...! ?

Women had increased blood flow to the limbic system, which is also associated with a more nurturing and friendly response.

Re: Enlightenment Finally

Also it is a serious mistake to take thought separate from feelings and the body. Further most thought is not creative/truthful but reiterates its hidden/faulty assumptions. Thought has created much disorder in the world and is single handedly responsible for much of human misery. I would refer you...

Re: Enlightenment Finally

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. I can't think of a single example of a person who damaged his mind from thinking too much. I do not think it is an extraordinary claim. Thinking is a physical process, and putting too much stress on the brain can lead to formation of pathological ha...

Re: Enlightenment Finally

Nietzsche most likely had a brain tumor or maybe syphillis. You can't "go mad" from thinking too much, and lose your ability to speak, read, and write. I'm sure he still had alot of important things to say, and he isn't going to stop himself from reading, writing, and speaking, simply because he tho...

Re: Expedient Devices

It goes to show that much rambling metaphysics and Eastern sophistry reveal their mostly substanceless and worthless musings about nothing. They all talk of form and the nature of things, but seem very empty and hollow when you ask them for the content of such things, the real meat of things that ac...

Re: Who wants to kill the elderly?

There is no such thing as an objective benchmark, in the sense of God-given rules or commandments existing independently outside of the mind, that one can call upon. However, as subjects, we can access a form of objectivity by uncovering what is ultimately true in life. Indeed, objectivity is nothi...

A=A the law of identity is only an empirical fact, you can empirically verify it by saying, "whatever the universe is, that's what it is" this is empirical, where's the "logical" in it?

What are the chances of me ignoring it because you can't be bothered thinking for yourself? I have thought about it but I don't see how you can't have sex without the ego, or without dominance/submission, or other "myths" of woman. You're claiming that all sex must involve some of this but without ...

You gave an example where science used to think that we were about 99% genetically the same as the apes, but now are moving towards thinking we are only, say 80% similar. That is an example of how the scientific view changes in accordance with the facts. That's not how religion works. Religion does...

Show me the religious bias Dan

Is it in the science? no it's not, and that's the important part that you blatantly ignore. You can't argue the science so you dishonestly evade the whole issue. I'm an atheist yet I'm using the same scientific arguments, now what?
