This thread is for discussion of the validity of religion(s) and arguments for and against the existence of god/gods.

Any other new posts about this subject will be deleted, or locked and referred to this one.

New threads about religious concepts that play inside their own ruleset are allowed, and we kindly ask that you refrain from turning those well meaning threads into arguments about religion as a whole.

We interrupt your scheduled bickering for this important announcement: Understanding /phi/

  • What this board is:
    • A place to discuss epistemology, ethics, aesthetics, metaphysics, and logic, in a general sense, or in an applied sense (in sex, science, vidya, your mother).
    • A place where not only is being a pretentious, hubristic dickhead is allowed, but is considered the norm.
  • What this board is not:
    • It is not /b/, /x/, or /rnb/.
    • A place to spew incoherent nonsense and verbal diarrhea.
    • A place to make claims with no justifications (and "because I say so" or "because you're gay" isn't a justification).
    • A place where the global rules do not apply.
An inability to follow these conventions will result in a warning!
Repeat offenders will be banned!

Why are atheists so obsessed with aliens and other conspiracy theories? There is literally no credible evidence for their existence. Is it because they are immature manchildren?

For someone claiming use of DHCP is evidence of mental illness your IPs change with startling regularity. Almost like your botnet clients keep getting cleaned up, forcing you to move on to another one.

White Guilt isn't why Whites are distressed. Being extorted is. Anonymous 18/11/16(Fri)14:39 No. 13715 ID: d74134 [Reply]

File 154237559892.jpg - (6.93KB , 268x188 , aynRandTeaching.jpg )

"[I feel] the same as everybody else, only more consciously."
-Ayn Rand, Tom Snyder interview, 1979

The distress associated with Whites' acquiescence to extortion (Whites paying nonWhites to prevent them destroying) is
mistaken for White guilt, when the distress is actually proximity to minorities who coerce Whites.

While the emotion (distress) is the same, remedying this distress requires treating its actual source-- which is not White guilt, but rather proximity to nonWhites who coerce Whites.

Recognizing that White guilt cannot exist because guilt requires us (not have wronged another) does not free us from distress.
But recognizing the interplay (coercion and extortion) between Whites and nonWhites in close proximity does show us a rational cause of our distress, and the method by which to decrease it: more distance between Whites and nonWhites.

Funny how before 1965 social welfare programs were extremely popular, but as soon as nonwhites became eligible it's extortion. Funny how whites still receive the majority of social assistance but you only mention non-whites. Funny how you feel that you could get to choose who to share this country with when I'm forced to share this country with mush brained knuckle draggers like you. Funny how by the formatting I can tell this is copypasta. Sage.

>A conclusion that two (or more) genes or proteins are homologous is a conjecture, not an experimental fact. We would be able to know for a fact that genes are homologous only if we could directly explore their common ancestor and all intermediate forms. Since there is no fossil record of these extinct forms, a decision on homology between genes has to be made on the basis of the similarity between them, the only observable variable that can be expressed numerically and correlated with probability.

>Taung Child's skull not human-like

How can anyone seriously believe in "evolution" when it all is based on a incomplete fossil record, that proves nothing, and comparative genetics that's just conjectures.

Fedora tippers are grasping at straws.

even large movements like the moving of planets are things that happen one moment at a time. These are things that, as others, happen only in the present.
Planets dont worry about how they're gonna move tommorow or how they moved yesterday, there's only the present.

Let me ask you a question, how different do you think you are from other people?

How many people, do you see in life that makes you say, "this person is like me" ?

Don't just bring up any sort of ism, just discuss me the idea

Of you being whatever you are, and the others being them.

Let me know

At first, I didn't even think anyone would reply to my post, but...
>defend whatever they are implanted to have as a group identity
>choosing to fight for opinions not remotely their own

I am glad you brought up this, sometimes it seems like certain people deny whatever it may be, just because some figure on CNN or Faux News said some inflammatory statement that provokes either side on the political spectrum

Take into account for example, an individual who digresses from the general and popular narrative of the local population, whether they deviate from society by their political stance, or go against social norms present in that region (remember to not forget about cultural relativism, where something something may be the norm in region A but it may be considered inhumane to region B) ; life may be quite spiteful and as a result, that same individual may be very unhappy, helpless and hopeless, toxic or bitter in their life as they feel like a minority and thus an "outcast"

Fear Uncertainty and Doubt (FUD) plays a role in not only misinforming the people, but also dividing them with false and untrue narratives

>almost like waving a flag
Well, in the irony of humanity, people tend to gravitate towards certain imagery, symbols, representations, whatever it may be and they too look for people who happen to identify with the same "object(s)"

Either I am not human, or I am the only human. There are no other possibilities. The distance between myself and others, the way I see the universe, the way I think, the way I feel and process information, is so totally different as to be almost impossible to compare. More than the difference between a man and a woman; more than the difference between a man and a dog; more than the difference between a man and plant life; more than the difference between a man and a sentient shade of the color blue. More than any description a human language can possibly create, because it is limited by its scope in being a human language.

I'm not even really here. The self which calls itself me is like a lump of matter protruding into reality, projected out out some alternate somewhere where the "real me" actually exists. Sometimes when I close my eyes, when I concentrate, when I lose myself, I can feel it: this terrifying sense that I can just pull out of this body like a ghost and leave this plane of existence.

I don't belong here. None of this is rational. The only explanation that is sensible (aside from absurd ones such as involving souls) is solipsism. There is only me, and the rest of you are but fake shadows on a wall for me to see. Who put them there...? I don't know. Maybe I did, a billion years ago when I tired of being alone and decided to play God.

Maybe I'm God; or maybe I'm a soulless Antichrist. But it must be one of these extremes; there is no normal here.

If one prints out enough copies of them, compresses and heats the stacks of copies into a kind of plywood, cuts that wood into the right shapes and then nails or screws it together, they would have a chair.

Or if the monitor they are looking at this picture on happens to be a CRT, they could easily use it as a chair. Or a wrecking ball...
