  1. . I expected the self-identified graduate of Berkeley to defend Antifa. . . How about Capeesh? . . Have you read the book? I recommend you think carefully before you answer. I await your answer.
  2. . . Let us begin...to "separate the men from the boys." (I will post, later, some detail on the error of "you are what you eat" so-called truism.) The first thing is that I change the "2+2" part of the "claim"; let's allow "2 + 2" to be substituted with "1 + 3" (or 3+1). The reason is to remove the irrelevant (and erroneous) impression of symmetry between the operands. The putative logic that is associated with the appeal to "2 + 2", must apply generally--no one would assert that the logic applies only for the natural number '2'; therefore, we can use x + y = z, where all are of the se
  3. You did it!!!!! You are now on my ignore list! Congratulations!! (That's pretty funny...
  4. . If you want to tackle Philosophy, then you begin with Plato's Republic and work from there. While there, you meet Aristotle. If you want to get aquainted with Philosophy while pursuing Physics, then you start some other place. Perhaps, someone else can recommend that starting point. I do believe this to be a better answer than my previous. Good luck to you in your decision. (I did the first route.)
  5. Reading and comprehension are two very different things. . Thank you "Farming guy". You've given an example of what I meant by this: . . I thank you.
  6. . The first thing of which I approve, actually second. I was going to move that here myself and I thank you for relieving me of that. Further, I had no intent and wish to "hijack" to other. Isn't that funny. -------Added---------- I just took a comprehensive look at what you moved. I had not intention of moving my recommendation to the new member of reading Nietzsche for HIS explicit philosophical interests. You should be relieved of your responsibilities I am now going to report your actions. ---------Added--- Here is the exact text in my "Report" submission; "this post"
  7. . The Nunes document linked below and linked in posts above and which you have hung your hat, precipitously, does not mention the name "Powers". Before anyone views that document, again or for the first time, notice the list of names on the top-left margin and the two names on the top-right margin--26 name, I think. One must assume that they all have given their imprimatur with respect to the contents of the document. Our very own Admin "Buffy"--yes, that's the name she uses, does not find this adequate. Ok. From page 2 of the Nunes document . . Further, I think that I read above in her
  8. . Do you even know what actually happened? Did you assert in the above that Powers' requests were approved? I thought they were requested but not approved. Do you know differently?
  9. . I had the post of yours you deleted in it's entirety--for good reason--but I deleted it and went back to find it gone. Lucky you; prudent decision--and I don't have to type a response, praise the lord. The Agnostic "speaks."
  10. . I do recall, though I'm having trouble finding, your post in which you comment about the pencils into my ears. When I read it, I thought, how ridiculous! if I stick them into my ears, then I will still see the repetive fatuity: I ought to stick them into my eyes! . . In my defense, I forgot the monumentally inappropriate name for the "stiff-arm", bust-heads operatives of the modern Democrat Party--not dissimilar to the well-known Brownshirts whom Hitler employed to such great result--except the mid-20th century infamous version showed their faces. I acknowledge my mistake and you may
  11. There is one other thing that one most definitely needs to know about USA politics, present-day, is that of the two candidates nominated to run, in fall of 2016, by the only two parties that had a chance of winning, both candidates, Clinton and Trump, were under Federal investigation!: Clinton for the server/email accusations and Trump....for what exactly?, that is the subject of the previous administration's use of Samantha Powers to unmask hundreds, the subject of the OP and, we all should believe by now, in an attempt to derail the potential Trump Presidency. This borders on insane and m

  13. . Yes, I understand. It was with that understanding that I gave the 1 through 4 summary of the possibilities and it was with that understanding that I gave you my reasons for not being inclined to speculate about far-flung possibilities: stating them in a list is not speculating about their truth-value. Now, I hope, you understand my position and reluctance to participate in speculation that requires monumental assumptions about tentative and tenuous evidence. If you wish to address such things as the profound implication of finding our solar system devoid of any life off-earth, then I w
  14. . I can tell you that I've read all works that were published prior to his death--this excludes the posthumous Will To Power--none in German, only English and some in multiple translation and none that can be called second-party analysis, which would be considered somebody's comprehension of the originals. I gave a hint as to whether I comprehended in a post to pertogoogalog-aba-daba-doo regarding the three types of history enumerated in the essay that goes by the title translated by Adrian Collins, The Use And Abuse Of History, link to ==> post in "History Is Bunk
  15. If I understand your OP, then a summary might be: 1. All life on earth--each and every element and instance of it, all the matter associated with it--has been "converted" into a form that can be stored elsewhere in the solar system 2. There is and are "systems" outside our solar system--let us call them planets--which are "capable of Darwinian life"--(your words, the asside question being, what is "Darwinian life" and how does it differ from any other life?)--and such planets host reproducible organism which may possess congnitive abilities not dissimilar to the type we possessed--we are
  16. . I recommend that you begin by reading the original works of Nietzsche, preferrably in German, which I could not do. I can recommend which English translations I found better than others and which books you might find benefitial. The general benefit at tackling his treatments of the subjects of philosophy and science, among others, is that it trains the mind and reveals the perils of prejudices (in thought) that hinder free-thinking.
  17. . Do you expect everyone to deny what's in the document written by: .
  18. I had been preparing a response between your recent responses, but didn't yet complete. I have read your reference to "2+2", which I presume you intend to be equated with 4, "=4", and I'd like to point you to my thread on this subject, to which I am attempting to write follow-ups when I get time. ==>The 'logic' And Certainty (And Perils) Of '2 + 2 = 4' . I am continuing to work on my response to this thread and your entries. Yes, your replies were worth reading and I will make reference to "worthiness" in my reply. ---------------Added hazelm, the only (singular) question I ha
  19. . All I meant by my references to Berkeley is that I know the difference those who participated in the events of the late mid-late 60s, early 70s and those who participate (and support) "Antifada" Do you? I have a B.A. in Computer Mathematics from Marist College, Poughkeepsie.
  20. . Do you realize that this thread was started by a member of the admin/moderator team and was continued by myself? Do you think it would have follow-up posts had I not decided to continue the thread? Can you be so kind and point to the content in this thread corresponding to your sentence?: .
  21. . Do you expect me to believe that the about 260 unmasking requests during the end of the Presidential campaign and the final months of Samantha Power's tenure at the United Nations has something to do with "bogeymen", Islamic, Presbeterian, Methodist or otherwise? Do you smoke crack as well as sipping booze when you type? Do you understand either of those questions?
  22. . I'm quite sure I'd prefer to stick a pencil into my ear,... both ears. Thanks for the offer. When I read that you had attended Berkeley, and particularly at that time, it was all I needed to know...with respect to an explanation.
  23. . Samantha Powers, former Delagate to United Nations, it is asserted by evidence requested about 260 unmasking requests in the months--I don't know how few months--of the previous Administration. That role--never mind the preposterous, obscene numbers--her role as UN Delegate has never been abused in such a fashion, and she was "following orders". The entire thing, all those involved could be locked in Federal prisons for very long times if the US government weren't dysfunctional to a frightful degree. This last underlined part is another topic.
  24. From the USA, an example of the beginning of traversing the road to being "written off" (over the cliff). Capice? Further, it is the insane contingent of the American Left that will be responsible for causing USA being sent over the edge (Sharia compliance at the expense of the pre-existing civil norms) while it will be the "armchair" passive observers and the American Right who will have allowed it to occur. Capice? From the link: . . Let the record show that UC Berkeley, Berkeley, CA (USA), is the very same insane place that Admin "Buffy" told us owas her college. I presume that I
  25. Germany Seyran Ates, preaches a genuinely "moderate Islam" but needs around-the-clock police protection. .
