How is his being israeli manifested in his writings, if it is at all?
Atheism, for starters.
Atheism is an extension of israeli propaganda
Yep. Atheism for the goyim.
That's not israeli. "Morality"/Noahide laws for the nations/goyim is israeli.
>"NOOO, any attack on my ancient retarded myths must be the work of the juuuz"
There's just no fix for stupid to this degree
All atheism requires is one miracle, that everything suddenly came from nothing for no reason at all. Or you could just be agnostic or a deist and accept that you don't know everything.
A miracle is a suspension of the natural order. For atheism to require a miracle, you would have to contend that the natural order was for nature not to exist.
Define nature, I would sooner call it reality.
Reality consists of time and space. The existence and ordering of time and space are what I refer to as nature. If it is in the nature of time and space to come into existence, it is not a miracle that we find that they have come into existence. Although, even the language of "coming into existence" is flawed when speaking of time, because "coming" denotes a change occurring in time, an impossibility when referring to time itself, since there was not prior time from which it to "come" from.
Sounds dangerously like taoism
>Reality consists of time and space.
Sure, but it's all in your head
So, time is eternal? That's not the standard view in physics today.
>So, time is eternal?
He's saying calling something eternal implies time exists. Time didn't come into existence because that implies there was a time before time existed. But that doesn't mean time is eternal
So nothing became something.
>So nothing became something.
Somewhat different question than asking about time."Became" implies that time existed before whatever popped into being.
There are two states, timeless and time. It went from the timeless state to a state of time according to our best observations. Or in theological terms that already square the circle of that superstate you can say the all and eternal beginning and end in it's timeless entirety with time being only an illusion of conciousness.
>It went from the timeless state to a state of time
It "went" again implies time existed prior to time existing. Nothing can be "before" time.
>with time being only an illusion of conciousness
And you're accusing me of being goofy
Again the current state is time. So either you believe in a superstate or you don't believe in reality.
>So either you believe in a superstate or you don't believe in reality.
Mystical gibberish. Of course since time is an illusion you already knew I was going to say that lol.
State a ‐ timeless
State b - time <---------- you are here
"Transition" between states again implies time exists. "Change" implies time. Talking about time not existing makes very little sense.
So in order for time to come into existence time must exist. Interesting take since time exists.
>So in order for time to come into existence time must exist
I'm not even sure I agree with this. All I'm saying is that it makes very little sense to talk about time not existing. I've never seen anyone talk about it without also assuming time exists by using temporal parts of language
Time is just measurement of matter in motion. Imagining a state with no matter or motion isn't that difficult.
>Imagining a state with no matter or motion isn't that difficult.
Not hard to make either any decent vacuum chamber can do it. But no, time does not stop in a vacuum.
And an ocean exists in a barrel of seawater.
Cause and effect are temporal phenomenon. A cause precedes its effect in time. It's literally incoherent to speak of a "cause" for the beginning of time, because by "cause" you reference an earlier time than the beginning of time.
>time didn't come into being because that implies that time is not eternal because in order for it to come into being there would have to have been a time before it. So it cannot have come into being
>but that doesn't mean that time is eternal.
You cut out the first part
>He's saying calling something eternal implies time exists
Prior to times existence nothing is eternal or transistory, those words don't apply since time doesn't exist. You can't even really talk about anything being "prior" to time's existence.
This is acutely succinct. israelites hate Christianity since Jerome burned the temple and Stephen was struck by the first stone.
Atheism is the solution for the Christian problem
Reminder that Christianity has just as much trouble with is/ought as atheism does.
In every system of morality, which I have hitherto met with, I have always remarked, that the author proceeds for some time in the ordinary way of reasoning, and ESTABLISHES THE BEING OF A GOD, or makes observations concerning human affairs; when of a sudden I am surprised to find, that instead of the usual copulations of propositions, is, and is not, I meet with no proposition that is not connected with an ought, or an ought not.
>we've le determined that suffering is a real thing, so like don't le cause it LOL
What if I want other people to suffer?
Conceivably, you could be deceived into thinking others are suffering, without them actually suffering. Thus the optimal outcome is for no one to suffer and for you to become delusional. Although I suspect you've already fulfilled your obligation in this regard.
What if he wants himself to suffer.
Any situation where you want yourself to suffer is an indication of pathology and should probably be investigated on those grounds. But generally speaking, people are free to make themselves miserable if they wish.
The first statement is an admission that you haven't breached the is ought gap.
As for the second, if a community of such people got together, would it be wrong for them to hurt one another?
I am referencing utility. To maximize well being, freedom and individual choice are good "rules of thumb", since any system created to regulate people too strictly will almost certainly lead to worse outcomes than ensuring freedom, even if some individuals use their freedom in a deleterious manner. If a person is operating under a pathology, it means they cannot accurately determine what they desire, in other words, they feel as though they desire things which will actually cause them real suffering and prevent them from flourishing. In short, I believe you have misunderstood my post.
>What if I want other people to suffer?
That's a desire imbued with ill will.
>le randomly assembled atoms
>also x is bad
? That's Ben Stiller.
It's actually trivially easy. All you need is to make it an if-then statement.
"If you want X, then you ought to do Y."

How does this NOT immediately provide sufficient material to derive an "ought"?
Because you can't OUGHT a fire out or OUGHT a fire into not occurring. Telling a fire it's bad and quantifying it is bad doesn't stop a fire from combusting.
Utilitarianism bridges the is-ought gap, because we are able to directly and immediately experience pleasure as good, and goodness by definition demands its own increase as an imperative for what is "better," so by our subjective experience of pleasure we are able to know it is an objective good with an objective "ought" towards its increase. Of course, from here we only need to consider that von Neumann machines (machines that utilize surrounding matter to replicate themselves) are theoretically possible, and then it becomes apparent that the ultimate "ought" of humanity is to utilize these von Neumann machines to transform as much of the universe into minds experiencing pleasure as possible, since the amount of pleasure so generated would completely swamp any other ethical concern or possible end to strive towards.
Pleasure belongs to the lower, animal life. Value is the good of the higher life of the human.
>Value is the good of the higher life of the human.
That's a gibberish way to say 'Pleasure extended over a longer period o time'
Sure, but that boils it down to one specific kind of pleasure and not pleasure in general. After all, as epicurus says, some unnecessary pleasure just entails more suffering
That does not bridge the problem. But your point about von Neuman machines is funny (aside from the fact that minds are not material). This is pure utilitarianism. Not even Mill would agree with this, who at least had some principles.
Define "value" in a way that can bridge the is-ought gap in the same way pleasure can with its immediately experienced goodness.
Value is that which is timeless. A statement expressing timelessness is experienced as good by a human being.
And could we say that this experience of it as good is a form of pleasure, making such valuation merely a subset of Utilitarianism?
Epicurean hedonism is misunderstood and not the same as utilitarianism
>uhhhh you can be an Atheist and a Buddhist at the same time :^)
I've always wondered how Buddhism without belief in the supernatural aspect of rebirth doesn't imply immediate suicide as the most efficient way to dissolve suffering. Atheist Buddhism, then, is either a suicide cult or a contradiction.

Do people really take this guy seriously?
he's really shown his true colors the past few years. high verbal iq midwit who's finally starting to fall off with his fanbase. you're not even exaggerating in the green text. he actually compared trump to an asteroid about to destroy the planet. i have two friends who have spent money to see this guy live unable to defend him.
He's deranged and mindbroken. All the people who used to have him on as guests talk about him in the past tense.
>We got unlucky that covid didn't kill more kids
So this... is the power of israeli moral philosophy...
Hegel already did this in a much more coherent way.
