  • Re: could boston attack on american soil been perpetrated by us government?

    You'd figure that they's be smart enough to create the FB page after they carry out the bombing. The Gov. could do it to antagonize conspiracy theorists in order to discredit them -after all how could it be the gov. if they weren't smart enough to create the FB page later? Yo dawg, I heard you like conspiracies. So I put a conspiracy in

  • Re: Asking about Nazi Germany Economy

    Hitler stopped war reparations payments which was one of the main reasons why the german state had to hyperinflate in the 1920s. With no hyperinflation any economy immediately receives quite a boost. I think that alone accounts for how he could both fund a socialistic state and keep output and employment growing.

  • Re: Quotes that make your skin crawl

    But if you vote the wrong way, Mitt Romney might happen, just like George W. Bush happened when 90,000 Floridians voted for an egotist named Ralph Nader. You want that? Then think about voting for Jill Stein. Obama/Biden 2012. Damn that's exploitative BS. It was no better with the conservatives and their "Vote for Romney because he's not

  • Re: God is subject to praxeology

    For one thing, as Mises pointed out, if God was perfect it would never need to act in the first place. If the universe as we see it is a result of purposeful action by God this would be evidence of imperfection because it means God is trying to undo some uneasiness IMO, an acting God can still feel "uneasiness" in the praxeological sense.

  • Re: God is subject to praxeology

    It is a contradiction to believe that an almighty being would create a universe with crappy qualities. Not saying that the universe itself is crappy, I'm glad the universe exists, just saying its not perfect. The very fact that everything in the universe, including inorganic matter, seems to be striving for some end shows evidence that God must

  • Re: karl popper on Aristotle

    Aristotelianism and related philosophies have told us for such a long time how important it is to get a precise knowledge of the meaning of our terms that we are inclined to believe it. And we continue to cling to this creed in spite of the unquestionable fact that philosophy, which for twenty centuries has worried about the meaning of its terms, is

  • Re: God is subject to praxeology

    Has anyone applied praxeology when it comes to God. Since praxeology deals with purposeful action it should apply as much to immortal beings as to humans. For a while I have thought that humans might be a means to an end rather than an end in themselves (most religions assume God made humans out of love and man is God's greatest creation). For example
