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!

>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.

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?

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.

it is the most used example in philosophy to explain examples or the example itself. Therefore, its a metaexample

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...

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.

Sure, that pretty much sums up the "in the image of God" that Christians have, but I don't see the metaphorical dumping of the glass taking place in any material sense.

I see that coming to realize one's part in the whole--that one is the part of the one in some sense--is good for the spirit, but I don't ever see you getting dumped back into the ocean until you're dead.

The ego will always continue to exist in the world, as we are all separate entities in the world.
Once you've come to the realization that you are part of the whole, you don't feel bad when the ego is poked, and that's one of the differences between someone with a more mature spiritual outlook and a person that's an ego maniac.

"Talk about glorifying suicide."

Yeah, I get some nihilistic vibes from buddhism.

It sounds like the beliefs of >>13637 are based on the notion of God and possibly the immaterial soul.

Anonymous 18/10/18(Thu)01:37 No. 13674 ID: 694780

There is no "dumping back" because we never left the ocean,the waves affect everybody even if you don't see it.After having this realization you will treat the ego as it really is,an entity that has it's own desires.
And in the end all your problems are cause by that same desire.
