Re: Best Ways To Read?

This might be completely off-topic, but do you guys experience any sense of paranoia insofar as your reading investments go? For example, I experience a level of paranoia whenever I read a chapter from a book that I intend to learn a good deal from. I think to myself that the knowledge that I have g...

Re: Cosmic Skeptic's video on veganism

That sucks. I mean, the way he was presenting his case, like saying how eating meat is 'morally bankrupt' kinda lends itself to thinking there are objective morals. Can he cope with this double standard? That's what I thought, especially in regards to the language that he was using when he talked a...

Re: Cosmic Skeptic's video on veganism

That's great! Does he agree now that morality is objective? Nope. He's still an ethical subjectivist, I don't think he's convinced of moral realism. His attempts to resolve moral issues is to simply bank on the fact that his interlocutors hold an overlapping norm (i.e. maximising well-being), or pe...

Re: Objections to Minimal Moral Realism

I think Avi fell off the internet, maybe for good this time. He has, I think it might've been due to some issues that he was having in terms of work and whatnot. It's a shame, though. He had some good influence on Ask Yourself's NTT shtick, and he was one of the three people (other two being JHC an...

Re: Zycron's Defense for Eating Meat

As always, brimstone did I better job than I could have at addressing this. Thanks for the post, I'm well aware of that Slaughter House Server (I think I was one of its first members before it exploded in popularity), and the owner, SD seems like a nice guy, but he's kind of a dick when he says he ...

Re: Zycron's Defense for Eating Meat

This might be slightly off-topic to what Red proposed, but I want to gather some input on this particular objection that I came across. If you guys do not mind sharing your thoughts on the matter I'd like to read what you have to say. The following objection is from a user known as "Wlof25", and I j...

Re: Objections to Minimal Moral Realism

brimstoneSalad Found this video where Dr. AVI discussed minimal moral realism with a guy known as "Realistic Nihilist". Pretty interesting discussion, to say the least. Feel free to watch if you're ever bored and have the time to do so. I think this is one of the only few times I've found an in-dep...

Re: Objections to Minimal Moral Realism

brimstoneSalad I was initially doing comic and concept art as a course because I wanted to strive for a career path that would be relatively relaxed/best suit my skill set. I do enjoy creating the illustrations within that fashion, and my peers told me I should push towards that path and create som...

Re: Objections to Minimal Moral Realism

In that video I thought the "scientific" understanding of "objective" was the standard interpretation of what it means for something to be "mind-independent" in philosophy, no? That is something is objective (mind-independent) in the sense that it is independent of one's personal beliefs, attitudes...
