This has nothing to do with atheism, but I have become fond and familiar with the community here and I would like your collective opinion on a sensitive matter with which I am faced. I know a little girl at a chinese restaurant I frequent; she is the owners' daughter and she eats with me when I come in. Recently she mentioned that one of her parent's employees creeps her out, so I asked her why. She said "he tickles me," which immediately sent up red flags to me. I asked her if she had told…

These 9/11 conspiracy videos are worth a look, "but don't take my word for it..."

Posted on January 5, 2012 at 2:36pm 30 Comments

Let me first say that until this year, I fully beleived that 9/11 was the work of al-Qaeda and Bin Laden...because I had never bothered to look at any of the conspiracy theories. This year, I finally got curious as to why people were still going on about the attacks being a government job, so I spent a few days looking up videos and reviews. Quite a few of them were sketchy and I was able to dismiss the claims because I could conceive of alternative possibilities to many of the allegations.…

Obama signs the NDAA and ends American Democracy: RIP America (1776-2011)

I had such high hopes for this man when I voted for him. I was so tired of seeing white men in office, even being white myself, that I wanted him to show people that they needn't conform to societal stereotypes. But he was a Trojan horse, and has now done more harm to this country than anyone President before him. I can no longer call him my president, as he has sold me into bondage. He has transformed the home of the free into a military dictatorship. It is now perfectly legal for him to…

The "Good" of Moral Relativism

I began this exchange in the midst of another thread, but as it was developing into its own discourse, I decided it should be moved to its own thread. If you'd like to see the comments that lead up to this reply by my friend Glen Rosenberg, they are here.

John,

No matter your philosophical bent,  ideas of strict determinism, it is only human to be peeved with the Z's of the world.

Greetings, John! I think human beings do create purpose and morality, but good luck on your moral philosophy. I'd like to invite you to a group where we talk about anything on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D

John –

 

Aha there is already such a group here in Nexus… looking forward to some interesting discussion  - come and join me…

 

Have a look on my page for the group if you can’t find it through a search.  I’m the 7th member and they could do with some extra discussions in there – they’ve only got 2 going.  You and me babe… let’s do it! : )

The longing for purpose I've always felt is a direct consequence of religiosity. I have never had purpose and do not desire it! LOL As you mentioned somewhere else, no amount of future digitalisation of humanity will provide us with satisfaction on that point. We are already in the Matrix, our brains create the illusion of a purpose driven life, when in fact reality is all simple biology. I am a wayward ape. And if it can be said of some extinct species whose oversized appendages directly led to their evolutionary unfitness for life, I believe the same of humans, our enormous pompous brains will eventually be our death. Homo sapiens have thrived on this planet for 500,000 yrs without causing global catastrophes and extinctions, yet in the last few centuries, Homo sapiens is single handedly accomplishing what the rest of earth needed millions of years to achieve. I expect the near future of humanity has two options: extinction due to lack of resources or a significant change in the definition of "human" as you remarked with your earlier "definition of a leaf" analogy. I have many friends who are singulatarians and they anticipate with glee a future where humans are completely synthetic and we all live in massively overpopulated little manufactured biospheres, stating ants and bees as examples of human society. I dislike that analogy at the most fundamental level, are we closest to apes or to bees/ants???? Which society therefore best describes our true nature??? I think the answer is pretty obvious.

It not about right or wrong, but I for one to not aspire to a bee or ant life, I prefer ape life.
