Re: I am the Walrus

In the spirit of gk's post, can I say that I absolutely loathe John Lennon's "Imagine"? From the whiningly banal tune, through the equally banal sentiments, to the way it's always touted as some great inspirational "humanist" (with a small "h") anthem... :sick: :sick: :sick: And it's "no religion EI...

Re: Are you a humanist or what?

I am also coming to the conclusion that "nihilism" is a fairly accurate label for a lot of my thinking. The following is from dictionary.com. Just looking for some clarification about which nihilism you're thinking of:ni·hil·ism " A doctrine holding that all values are baseless and that nothing can...

Re: Dogs are cruel, Cats are cool

You make a good point here, although my own "ad hom" against Milan and his methods is not that he's a Mexican, but that he's a short-arse. I suspect his concern with dominance is to do with his feelings of inadequacy regarding height (maybe he was bullied as a child?) You figure because he's short,...

Re: Are you a humanist or what?

Thanks for your response, Hundovir. My grandma had a calender she liked very much on which the caption read "I love Mankind, it's just people I can't stand". I know what she meant! I'm sad you take such a gloomy view of the world. Not the world, Nick - just many of its human inhabitants. Just becau...

Re: Dogs are cruel, Cats are cool

I read the article but I'm not overly impressed with the writer or his style of writing, however, it is the NYTimes which certainly caters to the more conservative. Why is this important? The very first line reads: "WITH a compelling personal story as the illegal immigrant made good because of his ...

Re: Do you believe in god?

According to my limited understanding of Zen, the only thing that is really transcended is not the physical universe, but our language and concepts about the world. What with your username and interest in Japanese poetry I'm sure I don't need to tell you who Ryokan was (to everybody else: he was a ...

Re: Atheist morals are irrational?

the thought that I ought to obey god's commandments because otherwise I'll go to hell, is very rational and not at all spiritual.

Thank you Ikiru, that name's new to me; I shall investigate. "Enough to be in a crowd, in order to feel that you side with all the dead planets." That is superb ! I often feel like that.

A question for Hundovir, :) In your introduction, all those months ago, you wrote: I'd say that I'm now settling into a "philosophical naturalism" as a world view You have also said a couple of times you do not consider yourself a humanist. What do you consider the points which distinguish one form...

Re: Do you believe in god?

I'd be interested in seeing more theistic interaction with non-theistic ontologies such as Buddhism. Hi Hundovir! What effect do you think this interaction would have on either ontology? That's a good question, and I'm not sure of the answer. To be honest, I'm not even sure what I meant! :laughter:...
