Sam Harris: Science can answer moral questions [split]

Muffles, you can evade the question all you want, it doesn't change the fact that you haven't got a clue ;). If you had any, it wouldn't be so difficult to answer such a simple question. Instead you invest, laughingly, so much energy to evade, insult and accuse others of the very things you are guilty of. And you say others have fundamentalist tendencies...ROFL ::).
I defer to your far wider experience in these matters, O Evader-in-Chief.

Oh well, I guess we will never know whether you actually have a clue about what materialism entails or whether you even have an understanding, despite you "proudly" associating yourself with it and praising it for its "successes" lol.

Aaaw, come on muffles, be constructive, make a thread to describe your understanding of materialism/materialistic approach/materialistic conception etc.
Then give a few reasons why you are a materialist based on this understanding of yours.

Can't be that difficult can it?

(Emphasis added.) Not “we,” old boy. “I.” And the reason why you, and you alone will never know these things has far more to do with your various cognitive impairments than any neglect on my part. How many more times do I need to put it to you that I’ll not waste my time explaining anything to you? How long before that message finally registers and computes? Has the masochistic imperative so addled your brain that you forget your history here and elsewhere?

Putting the deductive cart before the inductive horse again, eh? With such defective understanding, it’s no wonder you are not able to follow much of anything.

Not nearly as difficult as maintaining that wall of pigeonholes – or keeping them all clean, for that matter.

Evade all you want. And yes, it is not only me that does not know whether you actually understand anything with regards to materialism/materialistic approach/materialistic conception etc.

Fact is, you are a materialist, you don't deny it, you defend materialism (whatever you think it is lol).
Fact is, you show n NO real understanding of materialism.
Fact is, you provide no reason for being a materialist.

So if it is not so difficult to be constructive make a thread to describe your understanding of materialism, why don't you?

I don't think you should accuse others of "evasion", "defective understanding", cognitive impairments etc. ;).

old tele has the innate gift of having everything he/she/it touches end up in flame wars.
