Title: HELLo There :)
Post by: Notthesun on February 14, 2017, 09:39:44 PM
Hey guys! So I'm not sure anyone remembers me but I am back! I haven't been on here for 2-3 years if I am correct. I got busy with my last years of college and then just completely forgot about this website. Which is crazy because when I was here I fucking loved this site and most of you (and barely lol). Well, it's nice to be back!

Since then I got my Bachelor's in Philosophy and will be going to get my Master's soon. I also came out of the closet June 2015 after I graduated. I'm still an atheist. Although I dabble in Buddhism and Taoism. I just call myself an atheist tho. Damn, it has been long.

Anyways, I made a youtube video about how I became an atheist and I thought about this site and realized I want to come back and be a member again. It'd also mean a lot to me if you guys watched my video below and even subscribed to my channel.

I'm happy to be back. Let the good times roll!

Welcome back ... and don't spam, it is non-kosher ;-)

I am one of the few philosophers here.  So there are two kinds of philosophers ... early Wittgenstein and late Wittgenstein.  Which sophist are you?

I spammed? Is it by posting my youtube channel?



Late Wittgenstein.

Late Wittgenstein.

I didn't mind, I give you thumbs up for your video.  But yes, people have been banned for less.  Burned at the steak, with A1 sauce ;-)

So, the late great Wittgenstein eh ... the one nobody knew about.  What do you think of ...

Dennett is a POS.  Epiphenomenalism is woo.  The Turing Test met its match.

It's considered spam even if it's a video related to who I am? I mean I have other videos but I chose to use that one because I felt it was related lol. I hope I don't get banned! I don't remember things being that strict around here.


Also, I'll checkout your vids later!

I am pulling your leg .. they only eat babies and former Christians ;-))  So is your leg tender enough for BBQ?  Oh, I think if you check me out, we can have a lot of fun ... and boor the eye balls out of other people's sockets ;-p

That's a poor analogy.

Oh, boy! The more the merrier!

Hey, if someone has a bachelor's degree, can they still get married? I've always wondered... :headscratch:

Bem vindo!

I like alot of what Lao Tsu said, he offered a great deal of good and pithy advice for living in general, of which I frequently as much as humanly possible.  And the "Tao" is a fairly neutral entity--a couple of forces mingling, supposedly, though there's a fair amount of confusion to it.  Japanese and Chinese Taoism, for e.g., are sometimes at odds with each other as to interpretation of Yin and Yang.  But at one point I realized he kept making reference to "The Mother of All Things" that "created the Tao" and I'm like, "how is this not like every other religion?  A "Creator".  So, I usually skip over those parts.  Meditation is a real endeavor, though, and requires no religion to practice it.  It's more of a technique.

Anyway, what do you plan to do as a philosopher?
