Re: Jordan Peterson VS Cathy Newman

Here's what Jordan Peterson thinks of Cathy Newman after the interview: :D https://youtu.be/vXkLaZLSzgM I think he's accurate in describing Newman's interviewing tactics as 'barb with a bait' and that her response to his statements were conversationally irrelevant. Her choice of words was certainly ...

Re: Science and Morality

John Bunyan? The Pilgrim's Progress , right? I remember we talked about him ages ago. I read your post and took your points but I'm yet to do research on the info you provided. I'm sorry I'm taking my time here, Pilgrim, but I've also been so busy. I will reply in detail and our debate might come to...

Re: Science and Morality

I think those who fight about morality should study ethics, moral philosophy and deontology. And they should learn to communicate and debate, too. :ugeek: A good place to start would be Christian Wolff, for redefining philosophy as the science of the possible, and Immanuel Kant, as his 'categorical ...

Re: Jordan Peterson VS Cathy Newman

Apparently they are very much like us with their serotonin. :mrgreen: Did you see how Newman was not understanding the professor's statements about gender pay gap and kept distorting his semantics? That was cringeworthy. I think the lobsters were a red herring to hide the simple fact that she didn't...

Re: Jordan Peterson VS Cathy Newman

Jordan Peterson certainly came across as intellectually superior in this exchange. :lol: The strident Cathy Newman---who seems to assume most men are sexist---is nothing but a scatterbrain from the authoritarian political correctness camp of 'social justice warriors' (the 'offense sensitivity' under...

Re: This is why I support Genetic Engineering and Parenting training

Those critics really haven't thought it through, have they? :roll: First of all, people don't really choose anything. I'm a hard determinist all the way. The drive for survival maintains itself throughout much of one's life before Thanatos takes over (usually out of disillusionment with life). The d...

Yes, it goes without saying. I fully agree with your statement.

Re: Science and Morality

Hi and welcome back, Pilgrim! :D It is always good to have someone arguing from the opposition because it helps all of us to refine our discourse. :) I have many bones to pick with your post, Pilgrim, and very little time today but I promise I will address and impugn all your points---including misi...

Re: This is why I support Genetic Engineering and Parenting training

What I believe needs to happen one day is a world where no one judges based on appearance or a quirk to their brain they don’t like, but rather on how they can contribute in a positive way to society. I'm dismayed to discover that political scientist Charles Murray was attacked by so-called liberal...

Re: Thanatopsis

I want my thanatopsis to be accurate so I may ponder and expound upon this subject beyond what I will say here and now. I'm taking a physicalist approach here identical to RedKryptonite's. All the atoms in my body could, in principle, be rearranged to produce a lifeless and non-conscious conglomerat...
