BoogieMonster, don't be fooled. He posts quote-mined screeds, sometimes without attribution, in an apparent attempt to fool others into thinking he has some understanding of said screeds, but, when questioned or asked to explain, all he can do is be rude and evasive.

Don't worry, you won't generally find me in those discussions because I've long since stopped believing he can rationalize anything he says. It's hilarious to me that he accuses me so harshly of misrepresentation and staw men, then sets about doing the craziest amount of ad-homs... substance abuse? lack of intelligence? doesn't get out much? man oh man.... He's like a schizophrenic who can't decide which personality is the pot or the kettle.

EDIT: Oh, don't sweat the karma stuff. If you wanna plus me great, but I don't need em to measure my worth.  Wink

Do you struggle with language?

Stop projecting your own inadequacies.

Now, to try to unravel that strange thinking of yours, I'd appreciate your answering some questions, in the interest of understanding, mind you:

1. Do rocks have reason?
2. Do rocks have a reality?
3. As per 1. and 2. for trees.
4. As per 1. and 2. for ants.
5. As per 1. and 2. for cats.
6. As per 1. and 2. for humans.
7. Does reason have any kind of existence independent of a "mind"? If so, please describe.
8. Does reality exist independent of a "mind"?

Boogie, pick a topic to discuss so that we can look at the depths of your ignorance.

I never indicated I wanted to discuss anything with you. I said I'm THANKFUL I don't.

I didn't.
I really love this Teleo/whatever-his-name is guy. He always ignores me, that's one reason I love him, because me having an argument with him would drive me batty.
Then stop mentioning me in your boring BS posts ok... I mean it is not like you have something interesting or meaningful to say.

I'll mention whoever I want thank you very much. I'm not big on censorship, or being told what to do by random people out on the internet.

Already two people in this thread have expressed explicitly that I do. I'm not here merely for your benefit. There are other people here too.

Yep, definitely a narcissist.


1.has a grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements)
2.is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love
3.believes that he or she is "special" and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions)
4.requires excessive admiration
5.has a sense of entitlement, i.e., unreasonable expectations of especially favourable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations
is interpersonally exploitative, i.e., takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends
6.lacks empathy: is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others
7.is often envious of others or believes others are envious of him or her
shows arrogant, haughty behaviours or attitudes

Just my two cents worth....

Do you really expect them to be critical here? Lol man, critical thinking towards fellow forumites who just happen to share the same views as you here is not exactly cool man. But kudos to you that someone actually thinks your tripe is worth their while.

Hold on, weren't you the schmuck that said this:
So that's how you deal with criticism, name calling and personal attacks? I might not have said anything relevant to the OP (which I thought made for an interesting discussion),but at the same time, personal attacks such as that comment, and others, are unnecessary and don't add anything to the discussion.
Mmmm, guess I was right. but you are one of the more reasonable and civil interlopers here  Shocked.

You consider the drivel you post as a contribution? You derail every thread that gets posted, and then you resort to insults and name calling.

I figured you'd duck the questions as usual. But I'm not the one making wild claims about "the belief that our reality exists because of reason". I was going to ask you the same questions, or some of them anyway. Be a good boy and back up your claims, and elucidate what you understand "the belief that our reality exists because of reason" to mean. Or are you just trying to gooi out a bit of "sound and fury, signifying nothing" again LOL!.

Well, if you open your eyes for one second there, you will quickly realize that I am not the only one that does that and that it is a normal thing to do here (remember... when in Rome...). Damn man, you should really get of that high horse of yours, your hypocrisy stinks a bit.
