Every quote from this site:[url:2bur566s]http://www.kbuxton.com/discordia/discordianquotes.html[/url:2bur566s] this one is my favorite: "The truth of a proposition has nothing to do with its credibility." view post


I'm confused... posted 07 Mar 2006, 15:03 in Philosophy Discussionwho should determine what is "right"? by mr nobuddy, Candidate

Are you asking who determines what's right, or what should determine what's right? The first can be explained, but the second is a matter of opinion and of argumentations. I can do my best with the first one, but I am unable to decide on the second. I like to compare new ideas to mutations. According to the evolutionary theory, the species that is more adaptable to changing circumstances, or the mutation that makes a species more adaptable, will survive. The others will wither and die. Meaning that when ideas compete, the one that has an advantage over the other, be it providing evidence for it (evolutionary theory), or providing certainty in life (religion), or because they are more adaptable to a changing society, or because of other reasons. Slavery used to be accepted by society, but a mutation came to be, according to which slavery should be illigal. The mutation had the advantage over the traditional belief that people no longer saw blacks as "animals" or "inferior", but as normal human beings. And as is stated, in a way ideas are passed on like DNA. If you grow up in an environment where a certain idea dominates, you are likely to accept it rather than reject it. I wish I could add more, or make it a better explanation, but I can't. :? There is something missing in here, but I can't lay my finger on it. Tear this one apart if you wish. view post

You got me. And I seem to have killed this argument before it even had a decent launch. :? I'll try to give a countering argument, but I'll have to think on it. If I ever find one. Gods I suck at this. I fear that I can't find a countering argument. Sorry, it seems you win. :? :) view post


Nuclear Power posted 14 Mar 2006, 11:03 in Philosophy DiscussionNuclear Power by mr nobuddy, Candidate

I'm not sure wether or not this should be here or in the off-topic forum, but anyway. What do you think of nuclear power? Should all power plants be shut down, or should cars run on them? Personally: If there is one source of energy that's clean CO2-wise and still has exellent energy output, it's nuclear power. I wasn't around for Chernobyl, so I have never been a part of the mass-hysteria, but in 50 years of nuclear power usage, we -meaning humanity- have only had 1 explosion. Granted,that one explosion created enormous damage, but that's why we have safety measures. I feel like nuclear power is the big boogy man of environmentalists -apart from global warming, which is a serious problem as well, but no part of this discussion.- It has exellent revenue, but people seem so scared of the accidents that can happen that they want it out, no matter what the positive sides it has. And, no. I don't feel like cars should run on nuclear power. It's too unsafe for that. But power plants? Why not? view post

I didn't know that there had been in the US as well... As to fusion, perhaps this is interesting: [url:1et155bl]http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap060313.html[/url:1et155bl] [quote:1et155bl]the unexpected powerful contained explosion, the Z machine released about 80 times the world's entire electrical power usage for a brief fraction of a second[/quote:1et155bl] If you can somehow storage that amount of power, we'd have a major breakthrough! Then again, if this energy was converted into an explosion ... view post

Pretty much... -by the way, is the general consensus that this is the meaning of the title? I had a slightly different idea about it.... A suggestion (I do suck at this, but I gave it my best shot -it doesn't change much, but it seperates the spoilers from the introduction, and you can write a short summary after this): "The Thousandfold Thought is the third book in the Prince of Nothing series by Scott Bakker. It was published in January 2006. The book is the final chapter in the trilogy "Prince of Nothing", and documents the fate of the Holy War and the Warrior-Prophet. *Spoilers Below* -Wikipedia has such a tag, I believe? The title, Thousandfold Thought, was also envisioned and set into play by Anasûrimbor Moënghus. It is the union of the warring faiths of Inrithism and Fanimry under the rule of the Warrior Prophet and Aspect-Emperor of the Three Seas, Anasûrimbor Kellhus, in order to better prepare for the resurrection of the No-God Mog-Pharau by his Consult and the Second Apocalypse he shall bring. view post


posted 30 May 2006, 15:05 in The Thousandfold ThoughtHoly war goals - Consult and Kellhus by mr nobuddy, Candidate

Murrin already answered most of it, but an addition: who says that the Cishaurim are completely destroyed? If I were the supreme commander of the Cishaurim, I'd send a few of my teachers and scholars who are good at educating their pupils somewhere remote, where they can train new members and keep their knowledge intact. Or did I miss something while reading? view post


posted 30 May 2006, 19:05 in The Thousandfold ThoughtHoly war goals - Consult and Kellhus by mr nobuddy, Candidate

I doubt the Inrithi would allow it. Being of an opposing religion is one thing, if you actually hate the opposing religion, you wish to give a face to that religion. Otherwise it's just a concept 'out there'. The Inrithy gave face to it by linking the population of Shimeh to it, but more importantly, the people in charge in Chimeh. Who were they: the Chishaurim. Link this to the idea that sorcery is blasphemy, and you get the perfect potion for pure hate. Unless Kellhus manipulates his legions into accepting Cishaurim, I doubt that they'll even allow any blind men to convert. I could be wrong of course. You never know what will happen in 20 years time.... view post

Now that Mystar is here, I really hope for Mr Bakker to come back. An exchange of ideas between the two of them would certainly be interesting. view post

*begins to gather all knowledge in the world* now, Kellhus, if you spare me, I will give it to you. Goddamn; he'll just kill me afterwards. HELP! view post
