>If a supposed god is said to be a perfect being, that is to say, free of wants and needs, then why would a god create or do anything?

You're thinking of Him in a distant metaphysical way. His goal is the exact opposite of that.

No, god doesn't want to be an unknowable mystic deity, he wants to be a friend to you, hence "Heavenly father" being one of his names. That's who Jesus is really. The physical incarnation of God, and since we can see Jesus we know exactly who God is.

Why does a father want to have children? You tell me. also

Your definition of God is wrong

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!

>Overpopulation and dysfunctional families.
Most adults, especially nowadays are influenced by events in childhood. If the excessive nostalgia and "adulting" woes doesn't tell you, I dunno what will.
This is relatively objective but then you started projecting, hard...

>Their parents never spent any time with them other than to yell and beat them for doing wrong or making mistakes.

>Gen X, Y, and Z need reincarnation to an alternate timeline to where boomers didn't ruin things with stranger danger and outsourcing.

Anti-natailsm has been around since the BC's. To pretend it's a product of boomerism is narcissistic. By blaming Boomers you're draw an imaginary line in the sand for your convenience when, under your own logic, Boomerism itself is the result of the prior generations and so forth. You have a choice, you can either blame the human condition, where nobody is at fault, or blame your self for refusing to take control of the life you're given.

Solomon says in the Bible, better is he that is born dead than he that lives a thousand years twice over and sees the evil done under the Sun

For though his life is long, yet hath he seen no good.

It's implied those born dead still have the afterlife or rest to enjoy

How were they projecting? It's pretty fucking obvious. Why do you think so many of them rage about "normies"? Because those normies had parents who give a shit and they're jealous.

Some questions about skepticism and the principle of knowledge? Anonymous 20/04/15(Wed)02:32 No. 14461 ID: 4af815 [Reply]

What about this principle? ("if K (P - > ~ Q), then ~ k (~ Q) - > ~ k (P)") (if you know (P implies non-Q, then you don't know non-Q implies don't know P)

I learnt about that Nozick gave an anti skeptical argument based on this principle from Jesper Kallestrup's "Semantic Externalism "(New Problems of Philosophy),but I think his argument confused the image (electrical signal) of our "foot" in the brain in the vat with our actual foot (if we have one).

I entered the Faculty of Economics because my boyfriend went to study there. I didn't really understand where and why I was entering, but I followed him. Passed all the exams, entered. The study went smoothly until the moment when a huge number of written works began to be asked. Here https://assignmentmasters.org/economics-homework.html/ I found detailed information about where and how to find an author who can help me write. The result satisfied me, I will apply again.

Friends, I'm dying for direction. What I want is Solipsism as a topic handled from an Existential standpoint, not epistemologically. I want to learn about how Hollywoodian Solipsism effects our mentality and turns us into self-serving drones. I know that might be too opinionated and specific so I am also fine with anything that touches it tangentially. If you have any thoughts on the issue yourself I'd love to hear it.

Does anyone talk about how neolib education is largely a racquet and way for owners and managers to screen out stupid and lazy applicants?

Nobody talks about it this way because it's not this way. There is no basis for your claims. You are looking at the entirety of the education system through a distorted lens fitting to your (what I assume is your) anti-establishment/anti-neoliberalism/capitalism/whatnot rhetoric. I'm going to assume you didn't do very well in school either, which leads in part to the poor spelling (it's not the education system's fault you can't differentiate between homophones, it's your fault) and biased view towards to anything education related. My question is to you: If education is just a big neoliberal scheme and blah blah blah I ask you one question: What does a perfect education system look like? One that does not prepare student for jobs, because you have obviously shown a negative stance towards job preparation. A school favored towards the stupid and lazy? One that holds everybody's hands and makes sure every single student has a jolly merry old time throughout their studies? It's very foolish and I request that you think twice before shitting up the board with d-tier stoner thoughts.

I'm sure there is quite a bit of marxist social theory as well as perhaps some Durkheimian sociology that deals with this very topic of school shaping people in order to meet the labour demands of the economy.

Everything that is needed for a good understanding of the academic discipline can only be achieved through a long and detailed study of educational materials, because no one but you will drive this into your head. For example, not too long ago I was looking for the best college preparatory courses for my child, and this helpful comparison article https://edureviewer.com/prep-expert-vs-princeton-review/ helped me a lot. I am not going to overpay and it is important for me to know that the process of preparing for the tests will be really successful.
