Re: Vegan Gains on the Atheist Experience and most recent videos on veganism from or to Matt Dillahunty

No, only happy flourishing, which can either be understood through consequential interests, character virtues or prima-facie duties. Hedonism is a mistaken broken system. I can't keep walking you through moral universalism, you have to go away and do the reading yourself. I also can't see where you...

Re: Killing animals painlessly without witnesses?

Perhaps this WOULD be the greatest good for me? When the mind finds that negative or positive feedback doesn't vary based on its actions, it shuts down and enters a state of catatonia since mental processes are no longer needed. I don't think we know enough about consciousness to say if there is ne...

Re: I have a trait for "name the trait" to propose

I'd still like to hear if anyone finds the above trait compelling, or if they think its stupid, any thoughts! Name the trait is mostly trying to be a consistency check, so if this person agrees that severely mentally challenged humans also have no moral worth alongside animals, then he is consisten...

Re: Philosophical Vegan Discord?

Do you really think Peterson deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as great thinkers like Harris and Haidt? He has said some good things against the SJW movement but he believes there is an invisible man in the sky with whom one can telepathically connect. He has also said that vegans are lik...

Philosophical Vegan Discord?

Oh, how i've missed this place. I joined the r/vegan discord channel a while back and have been discussing things over there. I’m a big fan of people like Jonathan Haidt, Jordan Peterson, Sam Harris, and other logical centrists that focus on how both sides have blind spots and we need to have the ab...

Re: Crash Course Philosophy: Non-Human Animals

It's the single best video I have seen on this topic I was about to say the same thing. That was amazing. I wouldn't have thought it possible for someone who ate meat to be so unbiased and convincing on this topic. This was a previous video from him I was impressed with at the time. https://www.you...

Re: Concerning the Correspondence of an Ethical System to the Definition of Morality

Even if they narrow down to a range of two or three qualities, we can at least look at what they all have in common. In the overlap of the venn diagram of all of them, we can find unambiguous good The remaining ideas(maybe hundreds) that are logically coherent may have nothing to do with each other...

Re: Debunking the "vegan is too expensive" myth

you can see a photo on my instagram I want it... :cry: I keep hearing the "vegan privilege" argument, so I calculated the cost of one of meals I make most often. I grew up on food stamps and have never had a large food budget as an adult either, so you can imagine how it angers me when people tell ...

Re: Concerning the Correspondence of an Ethical System to the Definition of Morality

Rationality, reason, and logic, if practiced correctly, will never lead you to an unjustified belief, and given your empirical premises are correct too, will never lead you to a false one. Doesn’t this just push the question back further? Then it turns the question into "what should we count as jus...
