  • Re: Stefan Molyneux responds to David Gordon.

    Sat. 12/07/07 14:04 EDT . post #208 Just a tangential note here: I suggest editing your tags and separating the tags words with semi-colons. This will create multiple tags and hence multiple opportunities for people to find this post. As it stands, your (single) tag is just one long string of words,...

  • Stefan Molyneux responds to David Gordon.

    'So it appears that I have been thoroughly called out by David Gordon at, ridiculed for my "preposterously bad" reasoning, told that I should learn how to construct basic arguments, and been loftily informed that I have failed miserably in my philosophical goals. The article is...

  • Is there such a thing as a ‘necessary’ evil?

    It puzzles me how many people say this or that thing or particular action is a ‘necessary’ evil. Didn’t you just say it is evil? If it is evil then how is it necessary? How can you do good by doing something evil? Necessary evil seems pretty much like an oxymoron to me. This happens...

  • 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...

  • Mass murderer targets family-less, friend-less, homeless people. What can be done?

    I am struggling with Rothbard's idea of justice in as much as he seems to require the presence of the injured party.

  • Re: Is Stephen Hawking the Paul Krugman of Physics?

    unlapped_dog in reply to z1235: "Would you agree that any attempt to understand or explain aspects of reality requires the creation of a model?" All reasoning is creating models (which consist of sets of assumptions) and deducing what logically follows from them.

  • Re: Atheist Meta-Ethics: Neo-Nihilism - what do you think?

    No comment on the content, but I'd like to point out that even if you are simply refuting bad theory, these days it seems you have to label yourself with something in order to be taken seriously. I don't know if that is the case with neo-nihilism, but in philosophy in general I think the biggest...

  • Re: Is Stephen Hawking the Paul Krugman of Physics?

    unlapped_dog in reply to z1235: "this is THE all encompassing question we are dealing with here, this is absolutely key. are we searching for truth or are we searching for rationality? you are asking me what the true nature of reality is with that question, and i am saying that it is not rationalizable...
