American Nihilist Underground Society
"Nihilism, Futurist Traditionalism and Conservationism"

I have found this to be a great positive influence on my life, not just philosophically/abstractly or in practical life matters, but also in the other things the site introduced me to. Got me into Nietzsche, Burroughs, and some pretty awesome metal bands I'd probably never have had heard of.

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!

I shouldn't have to remind you, but if someone is posting something against the rules, please report it.

>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.

True, but it still doesn't explain why they cling to methods that are practically useless.

Anonymous 18/03/18(Sun)17:22 No. 13459 ID: d18aab

It kind of does. They use it because it tells them what they want to hear. If that sounds retarded, it should. That's why its a logical fallacy.

...I don't think they understand the concept of natural selection...

Learned from experience.... terrible ones, people were just not meant to live together.

Never, ever ever ever, pursue a relationship. It is never worth it.

nah, like, love exists, ive experienced it firsthand. but it fades. ive also experienced this. with a lot of work from both partues or maybe some really special connection it may be able to work but in general yeah its a thing but life long love is exceedingly rare.

Love, from what I've read, is a biological construct meant to last 2 years (although I suppose the time could be greater or less), meant to last long enough for the father to gather resources for his mate. There is, however, in my mind, a transcendental love, one like agape. Agape doesn't really depend on external constructs for its existence. It's unconditional.

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?

It's hard to believe there are people that actually think there are aliens that will invade Earth. To everybody else this is just schizophrenic ramblings.

There isn't enough tin foil in this world to protect them from these imaginary threats. So sad that these people won't get professional help.

Morality is subjective. I think the only right and wrong is how well you do you in life. If you are a depressed lolcow everyday that bitches then are most likely in the wrong and if you live life well and have fun they you are in the right. Ya dig?

> Is there really a right and wrong?

Morals derive from needs of your "tribe" versus needs of you.

> personally I believe that there is none, life is pointless.

You are not currently part of a "tribe" and feel alienated. Join a group of like-minded people to resolve.

Do you think people inherently deserve things just for existing?

What I believe:
That you exist doesn't mean I have to buy you a cake or do anything else for you. A favour is a privilege not a right.

The first asserts without evidence, so the second dismisses without evidence. I would be interested in hearing >>13325 argument for respect and generosity.

>you live in a complex society
This. While I agree with >>13310, the term 'right' is misused. One does not have inalienable rights; one has only been protected by a piece of paper which has established certain niceties. Every thing I consume, from oxygen to houses, (the sole exception perhaps being the digital (but not really, see: Slashdot Effect)) deprives another of something else. While I would like to live in a society that preserves me in a pleasantness (See: Rawls), the code of Omerta has always fucked with me:

"Whoever appeals to the law against his fellow man is either a fool or a coward. Whoever cannot take care of himself without that law is both, for a wounded man will shall say to his assailant, 'If I live, I will kill you. If I die, you are forgiven' -- such is the rule of honour"
