Susan Stanko replied to JR's discussion Applied evolutionary psychology in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Can't speak for others but, no, that didn't make any sense to me."
Sep 15, 2013
Dr. Wolfgang von Khaos replied to JR's discussion Applied evolutionary psychology in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"I think you're making a mutual division where one doesn't exist.  I can't see where experience and truth are mutually exclusive.  Of course, there's different ways to divide the pie re: truth, but for science to be what…"

Susan Stanko replied to JR's discussion Applied evolutionary psychology in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"exactly!  If our perceptions were always correct we wouldn't have optical illusions."

Dr. Wolfgang von Khaos replied to JR's discussion Applied evolutionary psychology in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"I'd reply if you'd give me something to reply to."

Joseph P replied to JR's discussion Applied evolutionary psychology in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Many of our experiences are flat-out wrong, as I've said elsewhere.  That's why we study and test this stuff.  You're trying to use free will as an argument for other things, though.  That requires a demonstration, not…"

Joseph P replied to JR's discussion Applied evolutionary psychology in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Many of our experiences are completely illusory.  The mind does screwed up things, sometimes.  Strangely, I put more weight on experimental science than I do on the way people perceive things to be, instinctively, since our instincts and…"

Shaun Johnston replied to JR's discussion Applied evolutionary psychology in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"I define free will as the experience of being able to initiate changes in the world that would not come about if everything about me functioned according to today's physics. My experience of having free will is logically prior to my knowledge…"

Susan Stanko replied to JR's discussion Applied evolutionary psychology in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"What is your definition of free will because, despite being told the determinist's definition, I don't think you actually understand the definition being used. "

Shaun Johnston replied to JR's discussion Applied evolutionary psychology in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Proving that some children don't have free will (though you merely assumed it) doesn't prove that you don't have free will"
Sep 14, 2013
Shaun Johnston replied to JR's discussion Applied evolutionary psychology in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"I experience I have free will. That's my choice. You choose to regard yourself as determined. Fine. I see no problem with that.  I don't have to persuade you against your will, anyway I see no way to resolve the issue.. We are free to…"

Joan Denoo replied to JR's discussion Applied evolutionary psychology in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"I worked for twenty years with dysfunctional families and troubled children. It didn't take very long to realize that individuals with foolish, stupid, irrational, dyslogic (my term) thinking have few rational ideas why they think and act as…"
Sep 14, 2013
Joseph P replied to JR's discussion Applied evolutionary psychology in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Demonstrate that we have free will, don't assert it.  I deny that we have the libertarian free will that theists tend to believe in, as almost all atheists and some theists deny, as well.  What evidence do you have that demonstrates…"

Jim DePaulo replied to JR's discussion Applied evolutionary psychology in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Have you not heard of prenuptial contracts?  If women see you only as a gold mine maybe you should reassess your limited view of women or your own self image.. "
Sep 14, 2013
Shaun Johnston replied to JR's discussion Applied evolutionary psychology in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"The examples you give, in a car, would correspond to repairing what goes wrong. But how, in the same terms, could you account for someone driving on a certain day to Albany to see a friend? What evolutionary psychology can't account for is our…"
Sep 14, 2013
JR replied to JR's discussion Evolved mechanisms that facilitate religious belief in the group Richard Dawkins
"I read a study about altruism showing that people were more likely to be altruistic if others were watching. So, there is a social dynamic operating in "just doing the right thing," as well as one operating (as you observed) in simply…"
