  1. The Problem With Socialism

    I think we've had a few anti-capitalism threads lately and want to balance out the perspectives. First I'll place myself. I'm an anarchist. That makes me more "right" than "left" but I have no intention of trying to tell anyone how it would be better than the current system. So, Socialism:...

  2. Was Primordial man Conscious as we are conscious?

    The more I look at Primordial Man, the less I see them as having a consciousness that was even similar to ours. I think they had physical brains, and highly developed instincts, but I do not view them as being conscious beings. They stayed stagnant far too long; stayed the same literally, with...

  3. After life? Or another time around....

    Forgive me if this has been done before but I would like to know what everyone thinks happens to us after we pass.... We have a lot of new members and I am on an opinion gathering mission. I'll start......I believe the soul leaves the body to return to another one and work on another issue it...

  4. Poll Poll: What if there was an anti-gay vaccine

    What if there was a vaccine for homosexuality. What if there was a shot a mom could get that would reduce the likelihood that the children she bore would be gay. What would the social, moral, religious, ethical and political impact of that be? And, more to the point, would you get the shot? ...

  5. "The more civilized we become, the less individual liberties we get to keep."

    "The more civilized we become, the less individual liberties we get to keep." This was a quote from a member of another forum. He actually wrote it with an air of "of course, so what?" What say you? **I'd like to add a poll, but that option is apparently gone. **

  6. What's wrong with atheism?

    We have a "what's wrong with religion" thread over there in the religious section but it didn't seem appropriate to discuss this there so here it is. I hope there isn't a move to kick it out of the philosophy section. Okay, what's wrong with atheism? Not a lot in my view. Well, nothing...

  9. Aphorisms

    I realized that there's really no 'right' place for this on ForumGarden. there's no 'philosophy' forum, and these fall under philosophy, after a fashion - not specifically religion. but anyway. aphorisms are 'nuggets of wisdom'. typically brief, pithy little bits of information pertaining to...

  10. September Scholar

    I am a retired engineer with a good bit of formal education and twenty five years of self-learning. I began the self-learning experience while in my mid-forties. I had no goal in mind; I was just following my intellectual curiosity in whatever direction it led me. This hobby, self-learning, has...

  11. Are people good or evil?

    Do you believe that people are essentially good or essentially evil, and why? I believe people are essentially good. That is why we have a conscience. If we were evil then our conscience wouldn't weigh on us so heavily when we do hurtful things or see others being hurt.

There was a time when genocide was considered a valuable and lawful option for migrants, a time when women had no equal opportunity protection, a time when slavery was just a profitable business...

  15. The problem with capitalism

    It seems to me that capitalism by its very nature is evil. Its very essenced is "survival of the fittest, every-one for themselves, I'm alright sod every-one else". I know it's out of favour at the moment but the nature of communism (true communism, not fascist Stalinism) is that everone helps...

    Do you believe you are here for a purpose? Or just to exist in bliss? Does your definition relate to your religion or to other factors like your job/business etc?

  17. My programme for a more masculine world

    Women are no longer necessary; they are obsolete. We could inject all preteen girls with masculinising hormones: by the time they reached adulthood, they would be indistinguishable from men. Yet they would still be biologically capable of producing offspring. We must start this programme...

  18. Compulsory Euthanasia

    We all know the classical discussion about euthanasia. What I find interesting though, is COMPULSORY euthanasia. Should there be compulsory euthanasia on psychiatric units? A lot of mentally unstable people are contributing less to the society than they recieve. For instance, a schizophrenic...

  20. Anti-intellectualism inhibits learning

    Anti-intellectualism inhibits learning A large percentage (studies suggest over 90%) of the meaning we derive from communication, we derive from the non-verbal cues that the other person gives. How does one communicate with an unseen audience that can be anybody in the world? In face-to-face...
