Philosophy Pet Peeves by Zach82 on June 17th, 2009, 10:43 pm
It never fails. Start discussing the possibility of objective morals and someone chimes in with the argument "I don't think there is objective right and wrong- lots of people have done horrible things in the name of good." This dense argument is peddled by philosophers and non-philosophers alike. Of course, this argument is an unsound one. I hardly deny that knowing those objective morals is difficult. However, our pet peeve argument presumes that there are no objective morals simply because people have been greviously wrong about their moral judgements. How is it that confusion implies non-existence? Even these folks presume objective morality the moment they say "People have done horrible things..." Honestly.

Bastille Day: rated "R" for violent content by Zach82 on July 14th, 2009, 6:59 pm
I learned something today: Don't mess with the French. Those who know the French National Anthem, which I looked up today for the first time, know what I am talking about.

Let's go children of the fatherland,
The day of glory has arrived!
Against us tyranny's
Bloody flag is raised! (repeat)
In the countryside, do you hear
The roaring of these fierce soldiers?
They come right to our arms
To slit the throats of our sons, our friends!

Grab your weapons, citizens!
Form your batallions!
Let us march! Let us march!
May impure blood
Water our fields!

Things You Learn About Yourself by weakmagneto on March 13th, 2012, 1:29 pm
Sometimes, in life, you are challenged. You will never know what you would do in a particular situation until it happens. You discover many things about yourself and your true character may be revealed, good or bad.

One such event happened to me. A group of us ladies (4), along with my daughter, who was in her late teens, were going to an isolated graveyard located in the wilderness to visit the graves of our loved ones who had passed long, long ago.

We had to walk a ways in the bush to get to the graveyard. As we got there, I had the feeling we were being watched. Just as I caught sight of the family graves, I seen a bear, standing on its hindlegs, staring at us. The bear had no fear. It was a young bear, probably a few years old, almost full-grown.

I immediately alerted the others of the bear. I calmly told them to walk back toward where we had parked the boat. I kept my eye on the bear, it walked parallel to us, it was observing us. I observed it, I was prepared to fight...

Understanding Human Behavior and Personality Types by AKH on April 13th, 2011, 9:35 pm
Ever wonder why your husband, wife, kids, friends, bosses... are acting the way they are? Well then you have come to the right place. The Wakefield Doctrine (the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers) is a unique, useful, helpful, beneficial and totally fun way to look at the way the people in our lives behave. Not just a clever categorization of personality types, but a perspective that, when adopted, will let you understand why people behave the way they do and predict how they will act in any situation.

With a basic understanding of the characteristics of each group (clarks, scotts and rogers), anyone can understand everyone else! You will know how those around you will act in virtually any situation. Finally you can understand what has never made sense to you about the people you work with, live with and/or are friends with. You will have the answer to the question, 'Why on earth would you do that/say that/feel that way?'

The Wakefield Doctrine is predicated upon the idea that everyone...
