  • Re: The epistemological status of Praxeology.

    Yes, the analogy is a bit badly chosen. And proofs for the existance of God are usually far more elaborate. Sometimes they are kind of a tautological or axiomatic nature and use introspection. Human action could be disputed by claiming that humans are just automatons that act upon stimuli, which can...

  • Is the human fetus a parasite according to science?

    this is what i saw on yahoo: THIS IS SCIENCE: FETUS IS NOT A BABY (GOOGLE THE HUMAN DEVELOPMENT CHART), but a parasite because the classification of the biological relationship that is based on the behavior one organism (fetus) and how it relates to the woman's body: as a zygote, it invaded the woman's...

  • Libertarianism, Theology, and Religion

    Personally, I'm not a libertarian in the non-aggression sense (in principle my views could vary from "laissez-faire statism" [a more essential definition of ancap IMO] to totalitarianism depending on the exigencies of history), but I'm a Catholic and I would say that I believe that...

  • Re: Were any of the authors featured at the Misis Institute Christians?

    @ MaikU " After all... where can you put "god" when you talk about economics???" I could answer that but I think you meant it rhetorically. Please people spare me the rhetoric I asked a simple and precise question.

  • Robert P. Murphy's main problem

    I was listening to introduction to anarchy by Murphy which is an hour long podcast. I thought that it was okay but he relies to much upon god. I'm an atheist so all arguments that use god i automatically dismiss. I'm not trying to be anti-religious but im just not convinced by religious arguments...

  • Can god have ordinal preferences?

    Let us investigate a claim on God and ordinal preferences. A thought experiment Preferences are ordinal, we rank them in terms of greatest benefit or least cost. We cannot claim that we love oranges 2.3 times more than apples, since the claim is without merit. It may be true that a utility function and...

  • A dilemma for Christian anarchists

    I'm a Christian and currently a minarchist, but I suspect I may be an anarchist soon once I continue to follow my beliefs to their logical conclusion. I believe taxation by the state is theft because those who pay have not given their consent and have no choice whether or not to pay. However, I came...

  • Re: God Proven to Exist According to Mainline Physics

    [quote user="liberty student"] James, a couple questions... 1. Why are you posting this here? It doesn't appear to be relevant to Austrian Economics at all. 2. Why are you cramming all of these links in here? Also, your signature doesn't meet the community guidelines for links. You...

  • God Proven to Exist According to Mainline Physics

    God has been proven to exist based upon the most reserved view of the known laws of physics. For much more on that, see Prof. Frank J. Tipler's below paper, which among other things demonstrates that the known laws of physics (i.e., the Second Law of Thermodynamics, general relativity, quantum mechanics...
