Re: #namethetrait and "trait equalizable"

Hi Priv, we don't normally allow links for new members. However, I assure you it isn't too long for a forum post. We have some very long posts here. Please feel free to copy it here as a reply. That said, there are different ways to interpret "trait equalizable", but the only thing that's needed is ...

Re: Greetings

Welcome Keegan, sorry it took so long to activate you on the wiki!

I look forward to seeing your contributions. Are you mostly sticking with directory stuff, or are you interested in working on some philosophy and science articles?

Re: Carnism in the animal protection field

I agree that such campaigns are troubling, I think it just adds to it that these are almost the opposite of effective altruism. Lives saves per dollar in these cases (where here it's in the negative) are usually at least very small. And more speculatively, they may serve as pseudosatisfiers for the ...

Re: Reincarnation

What are the arguments against it if: You can be reincarnated into any animal. There is no karma. It doesn't matter what you do in your lives. What animal you become is random. You can't remember past lives. How can that animal be you in any sense? The usual definition of a person in modern philoso...

Re: Are Renewables Cheaper than Nuclear?

Jamie in Chile It's an interesting notion, but I think we need to stress climate change prevention rather that what may happen if everything goes to shit. Ultimately, nuclear meltdowns aren't that dangerous, and cases like Chernobyl can't really happen with modern plants even if left to melt down. ...

Re: Veganism as potential religion in South Africa - legal debate

@DaedalusZA It's a pretty old topic, from a few years ago when the SJW vs anti-SJW stuff was really going strong.
It has probably been discussed in a couple threads but I'm sorry that I don't have links on hand.

Re: Hello

Adopted antinatalism about four years back. Studied Ethics under Prof. Benatar in 2006. In 2015/2016 I approached him for recommended literature as I was focusing on the emotional aspect of veganism whilst neglecting the cognitive aspect. Realised that society is already a cacophony of victim shout...

Re: Veganism as potential religion in South Africa - legal debate

Wow, interesting. Did not know this was being talked about. Because veganism clearly does not have a position on the supernatural and it doesn't preclude belief or lack thereof in any other actual religion, it would seem not to qualify by any reasonable definition. I could see the drive if you wante...
