  • Atheists, do you believe people can have false beliefs about what is right or wrong or do you believe that it is all subjective and that if?

    someone believes it is right then it is right for them? For example, many religious people believe gay people should die? Would you say that because they believe this, that it is a subjectively morally right thing to do? I don't think many of you would say it is ever right to kill someone for being gay. But... show more

Would you say that because they believe this, that it is a subjectively morally right thing to do? I don't think many of you would say it is ever right to kill someone for being gay. But when you say this YOU ARE stating that these people are wrong for believing this. Evolution is an objective fact, however many people don't accept it. Does that mean that evolution is only subjectively true or does it mean that some people have false beliefs? I contend that it is the same case with morality. There are some acts that are objectively wrong and harmful, however some people don't recognize this. This does not mean morality is subjective because these people have different beliefs, it means they are wrong or have false beliefs about what is right or wrong.

  • Is truth a democracy?

    They say the truth is the truth no matter what the majority believes is the truth, but does that even matter if the majority believes the lie is the truth? We will base our whole lives on that lie.. How do any of us even know what the real truth of anything is? It seems like most of life is actually just... show more
    They say the truth is the truth no matter what the majority believes is the truth, but does that even matter if the majority believes the lie is the truth? We will base our whole lives on that lie.. How do any of us even know what the real truth of anything is? It seems like most of life is actually just perspective.. Even how we see is different from how an insect sees.. Some see in infrared, we see in color... To that insect, the entire world looks a certain way, and to us, it's completely different. I might be digressing.. If the majority of the world believes something is true, what, exactly, makes it false? I keep thinking freedom of speech means rational thought and truth will prevail, but when I see irrational thought prevail, and I think about the past when irrational thought was the prevailing thought, when I see that it teeter totters back and forth.. which perspective is the rational truth and which one is irrational?? Does it just depend on the majority's consensus?

Lankavatara Sutra - Mahāyāna Buddhism There is no greater mystery than this; that being the reality we seek to gain reality. Sri Ramana Maharshi December 30, 1879 – April 14, 1950 Plato’s cave analogy. Inprisoned inside the cave (Us), prisoners see the shadows on the wall and mistakenly view the shadows as reality. Every now and agian someone awakens to the truth and tries to tell others (Us), but the others respond with anger.

  • Do you agree with my theory on free will, and free agency?

    I have a theory that says that basically, you always have to do what you want most, given the sum of all of your desires. I have a thought experiment, where you go to an ice cream shop, and they have two choices, chocolate, and vanilla. You have the free will do pick the one you want, but you don't have what... show more
    I have a theory that says that basically, you always have to do what you want most, given the sum of all of your desires. I have a thought experiment, where you go to an ice cream shop, and they have two choices, chocolate, and vanilla. You have the free will do pick the one you want, but you don't have what I call "free agency" because you HAVE to pick the one you want most, every time. Say, your taste buds are arranged a particular way that makes you like the taste of chocolate more then vanilla, then you will always pick chocolate over vanilla. The only way you could choose vanilla over chocolate would be if a new desire came along. Say, there is a special, and vanilla is half off, so then you have two conflicting desires, you want chocolate more because you like the taste, but you want to save money. My theory is that the stronger desire always wins out, and determines your choice. And I did an experiment in my daily life, and found out that this is true for every choice you ever make. The choice that you believe satisfies your desires the best, is the one you will always make. You still have "free will" in the sense that you are free to do what you want, however you lack "free agency" because you are always determined by your desires, that are chosen for you.
