MCT replied to scott martins's discussion IS EVERYBODY 100% POSITIVE THERE IS NO GOD?
"The law of identity, one of the most basic fundamentals of existence and cognition, is enough that additional proof is not necessary. As if I need to somehow prove that I am not currently on Jupiter. My presence here proves I am not as any essential…"

"Thank you Glen. And I might add that I think reason leads to the NAP. I am against non-retaliatory force when dealing with other people within society, for good reason. It is irrational and counter-productive."

Someone Tell Stephen Hawking That Magical Creation Is Impossible, That Nothingness Cannot Have A Characteristic, And That It Is Not Science That Tells Us With Certainty There Is No God

Posted on December 15, 2011 at 6:47pm 11 Comments

Stephen Hawking is great and happens to be correct about there not being a god, as we all know (or think we might, for all you 99%ers), and he is an excellent example of why physicists need to be reminded that they have necessary epistemological foundations to their knowledge and the ability to obtain it. We do not live in one universe of many. There is one universe. It consists of distinct and possibly overlapping expansions. This expansion should be called a sub-verse or mini-verse or…

I Think Therefore I Am: Not The First Of Three Valid And True Axioms

Posted on February 8, 2011 at 11:00pm 68 Comments

The first bit of awareness is not that you are thinking. It is of something. Something in reality. You sense first, then you think. It takes a multitude of sensations before you can have thought, or the manipulation and integration of concepts. As such, the very first statement, if you will, or thought you can make or the base of all cognition, epistemology and therefore philosophy is not 'I think therefore I am', but 'there is something I am aware of'. This entails an existent with identity… Continue

Socialism Sucks!

Posted on February 1, 2011 at 2:30am 62 Comments

Socialism, or collectivism, is a consequence of a more fundamental philosophical mistake. This mistake is the opinion that you do not have a moral right to your own life, that you owe part of your life to others. This idea is called altruism, which is mistakenly thought to be a moral position. Well, the principle of altruism, if you wish to actually think about it, is one of self-sacrifice, that it is moral to sacrifice your life to others. This should be clearly distinguished from benevolence,… Continue

Immortal Volitional Robots Need Morality.

Posted on January 27, 2011 at 11:58am 16 Comments

Immortality would not necessarily preclude the need for morality. There is no logical need for the futility of morals for an immortal. Why can an immortal volitional robot not choose that breathing clean air, while maybe not necessary, feels better than traveling to the moon without a space suit? Maybe reminiscing by the beach on a yacht on a sunny day is worth the money earned while providing medical care to mortals or teaching philosophy and better than hanging out in a trailer while watching… Continue

Michael - you being a physician are you open to helping me with a problem I have?  It's regarding autoimunity, diet, aching joints and sensitve teeth... : )  I don't want to have a winge - LOL - I just am really interested about what's going on with it, in a physiological way - I know that biochemistry is really complex - but I'm having some strange results that I don't understand - I have a theory and wondered if you might be knowledgable about it?
