Can we accept that things could go out of our control,please?
Yes, things could go out of our control because we humans are not perfect. Right,please?
“We can't accept some things are out of our control”
#4 Unveiled Artist,
I am of the alarming opinion that -- while philosophy is most often the wrong tool to use when attempting to answer questions about the physical world -- it is most often an essential tool to use when figuring out the right questions to ask. My view was insightfully expressed by Albert Einstein when he stated that figuring out the right question to ask was the hardest part of physics -- "The rest is easy". With that in mind, please allow me to tell you the scandalous and shocking tale of...
Often it can be seen that someone from a certain religion says something that triggers some other person who follows a different religion, and yes that is a normal reaction because we are all different.
But a question that comes to mind is: Does it really matter what others believe? Is it not most important to yourself that you are able to follow the religious/spiritual teaching you have chosen to follow?
If someone from a certain religion says something you disagree with because the...
For anyone who believes in one or another concept of evil, is evil an intrinsic property of a person or thing, or is it merely a quality of their behavior (or the consequences of their behavior)?
Put differently, was Hitler an intrinsically evil person, or was only his behavior (or its consequences) evil?
It is in the West quite popular to declare that evil is relative. Yet, often missing from such discussions is any effort to address how problematic such a statement might be.
For instance, consider this: If evil is purely relative, then it is possible that the Holocaust was not evil for everyone, but was instead good for some people. But if the Holocaust was good for some people, then we must consider the Holocaust in some circumstances morally justified. However, considering the...
Is evil relative?
It is impossible to define evil in such a way that it is not ultimately subjective because everything is ultimately subjective. But whether or not evil can be defined in such a way that it refers to something which is not relative but is instead absolute is yet another matter.
Certainly, if one defines evil as 'bad', then it is relative. But defining evil as bad is only one possible definition of the term.
So, is there some definition of evil such that the word does...
I didn’t know, when I came to these forums, how much the discussions would be about beliefs. I wasn’t thinking of religion as being about beliefs, because mine is not about beliefs at all. I’m wondering now if I’m the only one in these forums practicing a religion without beliefs. If there are others besides me practicing a religion without beliefs, that is with no beliefs at all about anything, I would like to know.
As a human I would claim that science has never learnt its lesson.
Less and son being the term of reference that humans say is the Teacher...the sacrifice of life, cell health and blood existing by its natural God, the core of binding.
Now if a scientist who is just a human the same as other humans can say to science, science is a liar. Then it is.
Yet that scientist has to also express lying in their owned circumstance to say and then accept I am a liar asides from telling the...
‘Dr Subramanian Swamy, a senior leader of the ruling party, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), and a member of India’s parliament, has said that Muslims are not equal citizens since they pose a threat to the world. He was speaking to journalist Isobel Yeung when he slammed over 200 million people of his own country; Muslims.
He was supposed to justify an ongoing human rights crisis in India, where Muslims are treated like second-class citizens. “On this issue, the country is with us,” he told...
