R.E.S.P.E.C.T-What it means to mean with regard to Religion.

This blog will be different for me since this one won't be loaded with facts, figures, cites and other drab blather that I normally write. This blog is about respecting religious views. Faith. An illogical belief that is devoid of proof. Where else in our discourse do we actually use this word properly? I don't mean the colloquial meaning, in sentences such as "I have faith in him/her". For instance, when has anybody (that isn't completely deranged) actually had faith in any material object?… Continue

Was Hitler An Atheist?

See for yourself.



"My feelings as a Christian points me to my Lord and Savior as a fighter. It points me to the man who once in loneliness, surrounded by a few followers, recognized these Jews for what they were and summoned men to fight against them and who, God's truth! was greatest not as a sufferer but as a fighter. In boundless love as a Christian and as a man I read through the passage which tells us how the Lord at last rose in His might and seized the scourge to drive out of… Continue

Artificial Intelligence

If the intelligence of the human mind is the product of the a physical mind, and thusly its actions dictated by physical laws, then it is reasonable to conclude that an artificial mind of equal physical capacity would be necessarily intelligent. This is the principle of multiple realizability (1). For any process that produces an affect, there is no reason to assume that said process is the only means of producing the very same affect. That a form produces or infers a specific action does not… Continue

Critiquing Descartes

When Descartes investigated the implications of skepticism, i.e., that because we can cast doubt on any supposition, we can never be certain that our supposition is correct, he proposed that doubting ones own existence necessarily affirms it and, thus, of at least one thing a person can be certain beyond any doubt; that they exist. In order for an entity doubt anything at all, even that it exist, it must first exist to do so. Descartes proposal is immune to the skeptics doubt because the very… Continue

Dualism Blurb

I wrote this for my introduction to philosophy class.



According to dualism, the mind can exist separately of the body and is not dependent upon the body to exist. The body is a physical entity that exists wholly in the material world. The mind, though, is analogous to the soul or the conscious and, unlike eating or breathing, is not considered a function of the physical form.



Descartes’ believed that our idea of perfection, which he assumed does not exist in the real… Continue

The mind-body problem

The mind-body problem deals with questions about the nature of the mind and how it is related to the physical world. Questions as to whether the mind is immaterial and distinct from the physical or an emergent property of a physical reality are of primary interest to the mind-body problem. I am of the opinion that the mind is an emergent property of a physical reality. Physical, in the context of this discussion, would include all forms of matter, energy, and the laws by which they… Continue

The Teleological Argument

The Teleological Argument



The teleological argument is an inductive means reaching the conclusion that the universe was designed by an intelligent entity. Essentially, if were to find a complicated machine in the middle of nowhere, we would not suppose it were there by chance or by whim of nature. Rather, we would suppose that the complexity and form, and perhaps function it is apparent, inferred that it was created by an intelligent being. In the same sense, though, we find that… Continue

2012: Apocalypse Not.

Written by Joel



THE WORLD IS GOING TO END DECEMEBER 21, 2012!!



Well, no, probably not. There is a good chance this is wrong. This 2012 Apocalypse hysteria is not a small nutjob movement based on fuzzy thinking and very little compelling evidence, it is in fact a very large nutjob movement based on a fuzzy thinking and very little compelling evidence. Need proof of that? An Amazon.com book search for "2012" generated 91,450 results. So one can conclude that there exists a… Continue
