Re: Kant did NOT (!) say "God is an Impossibility"

Subjectivists ar those who insist that their own arguments are necessarily right. The word "own" already stands for this. Additionaly, subjectivists have more reasons to insist that their own arguments are necessarily right, because they lack objectivity, at least always more than objectiv...

Re: Who discovered North America ?

If the semantics of the word "discoverer" or the word discovering" has to meet two conditions - (1.) to be the first one who has arrived and (2.) to know for sure what exactly has been discovered -, then nobody has ever discovered North America. :P

Re: Subjectivity versus Objectivity

The problem is that it is very difficult to tell about a non-existent "world", thus a about a "world" without any object. If one tells about a subject, then it is already an object. Therefore I said you should imagine to be a brain or a thought as a singularity in which it is imp...

Re: Who discovered North America ?

The first who discovered America were the Vikings under Leif Eriksson who lived from 970 to 1020. They discovered it around the year 1000. http://www.ilovephilosophy.com/download/file.php?id=3229 https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/b/b3/Christian-krohg-leiv-eriksson.jpg/1280px-Chri...

Re: God is an Impossibility

So, I am right: Kant did not say "God is an impossibilty". See my reply to JSS above. To clue you in, in the Critique of Reason, Kant raised a detailed chapter [N K Smith] regarding; Chapter III . The Ideal of Pure Reason .... Section 4. The Impossibility of an Ontological Proof of the Ex...

Re: Who discovered North America ?

You get me .... wrong. :lol: I was going by your premise Arminius, so I think I get you right? ;) Feel free to make me think otherwise... I'm listening. When you came to England, did you discover England like the Vikings when they discovered North America? :) http://www.ilovephilosophy.com/download...

Re: What is an emotion?

Just a thought: If it is allowed to speak of a dualism between heart and brain, between blood and nerves, thenit should also be allowed to speak of a dualism between emotion/emotionality and reason/rationality.

Re: God is an Impossibility

Kant did not say "God is an impossibilty". If you read the CPR carefully, you will note [read carefully] Kant concluded [not in exact] words, "God is an impossibility" within an empirical-rational reality. Here is one clue [ mine ] where the idea of a God is illusory without emp...

Re: God is an Impossibility

How do you come to the false conclusion again that it would be "ridiculous" to define "God as a non-living without agency"? The default is; God is the creator of the Whole Universe. It would be ridiculous if such a creator God is not living and has power of agency. It is not rid...

The problem is that too much consideration of subjectivity can lead to extreme subjectivism, thus solipsism. Accoding to a solipsist, the subjective I (self, ego) with its conscious contents is the only reality. The problem is that creating disagreement is the purpose (obfuscation, misdirection, an...

Re: God is an Impossibility

"Being" is the equivalent to the Ancient-Greek "ὄν" ("ón") whick led to "ontology", the "science of being". Therefore I used the word "being(s)" instead of the word "thing(s)". The other reason was the succession or the chronology...
