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!

In Theravada Buddhism, a person can become a god, and during godhood attain a state of enlightenment which results in ending the cycle of rebirth. Some of the final stages of this cycle involve letting go of the will to live, followed by letting go of the will to exist in any form. Losing the will to live or exist at all happens exclusively in god form. After losing the will to exist, conciet, restlessness, and ignorance go away too. Then, nirvana is attained and the person isn’t born again.

Talk about glorifying suicide.

I’m not sure what you mean by “stupid,” but Christianity promotes slave morality.

Anonymous 18/09/26(Wed)02:11 No. 13637 ID: 650f3f

alright you are not understanding Budddhism. you dont become a god you only realize that you never were seperate from G-d. (G-d as in that which gives matter its form and G-d from whom all comes) You realize that "your" mind, "your" body, and "your" ego is not you and that the essence of you is G-d. Because you realize that you are not the person whos form you inhabit you no longer are trapped by the desires that the person was because you are unattached to his existence. Once you fully realize that you are G-d and let go of all attachments then you achieve union with G-d (Nirvana). It's like this: someone once took a cup of water out of the ocean. The cup of water is you, the ocean is G-d. You were never different from G-d you only imagine that you are because you are seperated, once you realize who you are, the cup is dumped back into the ocean and you attain one-ness with G-d.

>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.

This must have started as a meme and gotten out of control. The premise is obvious meme-stuff: take an unpopular, incredulous point of view like denying decades of conclusive scientific fact, and (t)roll with it. Unfortunately I think the trolls attracted some actual luddites to who unwittingly hijacked their meme and now congregate in 7chan/phi/ to circle jerk in the little corner of the internet where their Jesus beat science.

Living in denial is a miserable burden, they shouldn't have to suffer such stupidity. Unfortunately being stupid is no longer a detriment to survival thanks to all the security measures and medical technology our highly evolved brains developed.

Nice assertions you've got there. Didn't really demonstrate anything, though. Appealing to consensus is, unfortunately, not an argument. Sorry...

Listen to yourself; you can't even talk like a human being any more. I'm just having a conversation, not a formal debate, and not even with you. Go outside, get some fresh air. Consider that you are one of many land-dwelling species to evolve after the Oxygen Boom.

How should emotions affect moral judgements? Anonymous 18/09/18(Tue)21:38 No. 13624 ID: 498c33 [Reply]

I have read in the Catholic Catechism which says emotions are not good or bad but should be controlled by reason and will. Emotions can help a person intuit good or evil, and are good only insofar as they help someone do good (not when the vices pervert them). When someone lives morally, emotions reach their consummation.

How should emotions affect moral judgements? The Catechism is just one example.

Anonymous 18/09/20(Thu)07:55 No. 13625 ID: a6dac9

Define morally, emotions, etc. Is logic an emotion? Moral judgement in what context? Aren't there a lot of exceptions to any ethical system?

Anonymous 18/09/20(Thu)09:26 No. 13627 ID: 4c89fb

I'm not sure that there any problems with my question. For definitions, you would probably already have an idea of what the words mean.

For adding context, I think you are saying to limit the thread to a particular instance (like can compassion justify stealing?). What I'm trying to do is learn more generally how emotions determine morality. Maybe with some yardsticks.

And not all ethical systems are filled with exceptions. Stoics and Kantians could answer my question more simply. To them, emotions go against reason-morality is performed by reason-so there would be no impact of emotions on moral reasoning.

But maybe my example is confusing? I could elaborate on the meaning of the Catechism-what Catholics think living morally is-though it seems unnecessary.

Do you feel that Jonas' characterization that Manicheism is a form of Gnosticism is more accurate that characterizing it as an offshoot of or influenced by Gnosticism?

so i have a sort of philosophy that knowing details as the oldest grass to exist in the world and the population of the first existing dinosaurs may lead to unlocking infinity as in we can take it as a specific sort of factor as in how we see Avogadro number and such since scientist believe that the universe exapnds at what seems to be 68km per sec would it be possible if this equation which is infinity=68xmc2 as in x represting the actual diamter length whatever you may wanna call it as a standard unit

basically i made a law called the law of infinite which states that anything that goes faster than speed of which infinity increases gives infinity a value.as in just suppose you are counting 1,2,3,4 slowly if a count tell ten the infinte numbers which u were supposed to count has values now as in 5,6,7,8

while the equation wont certainly give as knowledge of the whole universe we can know the exact required of speed needed which may be distance by time whatever you call it to discover the end of infinity.i know this may not be plausible but i need your guys thoughts on it

Anonymous 18/08/14(Tue)16:00 No. 13597 ID: b6c80a

sounds like a word-salad philosophy of pseudo-arbitrarily determined scientifically referenced conceptual terms noncoherently structured as to imply as a consequence a psychologically determined arbitrary-valued non-sensible proposition through the blurring of logic through ambiguous translation of symbolic sequences.

>speed of which infinity increases
you might be interested in reading about limits, fast growing hierarchies, transfinite sets and cardinalities/ordinalities

if you mean deriving a standard unit of measurement as a natural unit from the growth rate of the universe... eh its novel but there are problems, just use planck's.
