Re: The discomfort of truth


You need to acknowledge the difference between humans and machines.

The discomfort of truth

Christians seem to argue that if there is no soul, or no god, or no "ultimate morality" then there is no meaning to life. If we are just "here", then we are animals without a purpose, and life is meaningless. Meaning is important, [more]

In a universe where there are more than binary outcomes, why reduce the complex functions of the human brain to binary solutions? [i.e. we're either built to act a certain way, or we're not] or [a stimulus acts the same way on many

Khalou, what is your native language? It seems you are taking many words literally that are in fact being used, at best, loosely.

When people say Phelps was evil, no supernatural component is being inferred. They just mean he was a nasty

Free will

Imagine a simple circuit that provides a pulse depending on the input. An "and/or" gate. It would consist of two inputs and one output.

If there is a 1 on one input and a 0 on the second, then it would produce a 1 at the output. If [more]

Obviously. But I don't "win" no matter what happens here.

In the real world I can choose to do something one day and something else the next. And I find it completely reasonable that society holds me accountable for that exercise of my free will.
