Anybody else disturbed by atheist normies' moral nihilism? For some reason when a normie discovers that there is no God he immediately rejects moral and societal norms of Christianity and starts engaging in ungodly leftist cultism and decadence. The thought horrifies me, people really lack any inner moral integrity.

      so why is it okay for some guy in 20 AD to willingly submit to having his dick chopped off so that he can't overthrow a monarchy, but not okay for some person born with a penis to undergo a surgery so that their body is more in line with what their soul is telling them they are?

      Yes, because when you stand on nothing and believe all morality is just expressions of personal preference, emotion, you are left with only getting really emotional to make your case.

      Or you try to justify things in "pragmatic" terms which now means you need science to say certain things to make your morality work. Hence the histrionics over racial differences. If it could be suggested empirically that using race as a selection criteria was pragmatic, they have no ground for arguing against it, because they do not believe in the inherit dignity of the human person.

      They also end up in the cruelly ironic place where they want people in power to be paragons of moral virtue, tearing them down for small sleights (e.g. canceling over decades old Halloween costumes) but at the same time deny any objective good and claim that the Good is simply defined by power politics and social movements such that it changes over time.

      They fail to realize that in abolishing man's telos and natural law they have chopped through the trunk of the tree of morality and the virtues. They also tend to accept the absurd positivist standard of objectivity as a "view from nowhere," and then deny morality when it cannot be uncovered in this flawed lens.

      It leads them into incoherent and at times despicable behavior.

      No, their morals aren't from within, but informed by social and mainstream media. Which also happens to be a rebellion of everything that is Christian or perceived as "right-wing". They are literally the moronic population from Orwell's 1984, which is funny as the society of 1984 was based on Communism (which leftist Americans who have never been abroad, except for a carnival cruise of weekend in Mexico, love so much; people flee from Communist countries to America have a different view).

      >"Palestine (Muslims; being gay is a crime punishable by death) good."

      >"People who don't take this vaccine deserve to get fired, arrested, and not receive hospital care"

      There is no reason to be against people owning guns in their homes so long as they have a permit. There is no reason to support abortion except under the most extreme cases (incest, SA, high probability of death during delivery). There is no logical reason to support ILLEGAL immigration and pretend being against ILLEGAL immigration is the same as being against all immigration. There is no reason to fricking be against Voter IDs.

      Their "beliefs" have no logic behind them. These people cry about capitalism on apps that only exist because they are owned/run by billionaires; assuming they work (kek) their place of employment was likely created or is owned by a millionaire. They wear clothes made by people in sweatshops (don't most of us) while talking about human rights.

      All self-proclaimed socialists in a Capitalist society are Champagne socialist.

      Leftist is about gaining power, but instead of putting in the grind, they use emotional manipulation.

          There are people who really do have gender dysphoria and who honestly believe they have the wrong gender. But there are also many others who are mostly doing performative stuff to try to sound original and modern.

            I get all that but this is where my materialism comes in. A lot of the ideal conservative heterosexual couplings with strictly defined gender roles makes perfect sense in a largely agricultural society with a church in the center of every village, but doesn't make a lick of empirical or theoretical sense in a modern, highly urbanized, industrialized society. Even our entertainment in terms of video games allow people to play around with whatever gender they want to be. If you're walking around New York City and see guys who look like, there's a solid chance they'll be gay -- those guys are more likely to be the peak athletic bros unless you're an actual athlete who plays sports for a living. It's funny too that the adherents of queer theory now would write them out of the picture because they're not "interesting" anymore, like there's a weird queer thing now but it's... like... not even gay. It's... something else. But it's quite amazing that a distinct gay make culture has just proceeded to do its own thing without regard for what anybody thinks.

            Again, this is why you're unconscious of the fact you're shifting the burden of your beliefs onto others and deflecting away from the fact the onus is on you to justify your parameters.

Further, you have no scientific understanding to justify the claim you're asserting as demonstrated by your poverty of knowledge when it comes to the conceptual framework you're aping.

            I'm not. You yourself did via the assertion that one must adopt a materialist position in order to refute your assertion. You weren't conscious of this because you're not very good at dialectics. This is why you're stuck in a loop of deflecting the burden of your beliefs onto others and shift the onus for them away from justification. The shakiness of your platform is betrayed by your personal insecurity.
            >Rather, one must demonstrate or explain how one's biology is capable of harboring objective, universal, or absolute knowledge, to assert that it is.
            No. One can make a transcendental argument that we simply have limited access. The basis of the Abrahamic religions is accepting such humility and being prepared for failure due to the inherent limitations of being human. Such limitation is an objective truth no matter how much you want it to be a postulate.
            >It is not my responsibility to demonstrate or explain your position, it is yours.
            No, anon. The fact is you appeal to complexity and give a Fermi solution without an understanding of the Bayesian structure you're pretending towards. You then obfuscate the fact you're making an assertion that by its own logic cannot be objective. This is why you're stuck in a loop and don't understand when others have pointed out the fault in your logic.

The reason I'm writing this again before engaging your slide is that the unfounded assertion you're making is that everything is material; as such you'll reframe everything according to this without even realizing you're being disingenuous. This is why Marxist materialism was used as an examplar of something that is unfalsifiable by Popper. You assert that others must adopt your framework in order to refute it when this simply isn't the case; it can be rejected (especially since its logic is self-refuting anyway).

            So, you'll want to argue that all understanding is just brain states and in the end it's all we have access to in order to understand the world. However, the external world I'm interacting with isn't simply a manifestation of my brain state or else I could cause whatever I wanted to materialize (I also have the benefit of interacting with other minds that will deny hallucinations). You can then retreat to solipsism but the fact is I can accept limitations on my understanding without framing them as materialistic (i.e. your assertion doesnt have a monopoly on the concept of human limitations be they physical or otherwise). There's also arguments toward the idea that something like colour doesn't exist and it's just the way one's brain interprets light waves but we still have a concept of color even if it isn't a fundemental aspect of physical reality (whatever is meant by "fundemental aspect"). Basically, by your own logic you have no means by which to objectively compare one brain state to another so you can't make a Bayesian style argument or pretend toward a Fermi solution that defines consciousness as material.

            So anon, if you want to argue there is no objective foundation to human knowledge outside of materialism that's one thing but you can't take it to be self evident and then pretend you're engaging in a dialectic. That's just dumb.

            All things are received in the manner of the receiver. The problem you are referring to, how the finite can know the infinite, isn't something you need modern science to understand. It's been a going issue in philosophy from the very begining. However, there are also many good answers to this, see Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, and Aquinas.

            But surely we can trust mathematics to get us correct or correct enough answers since otherwise you couldn't believe in science. Yet then it seems we can be "correct enough," about infinite things, and so perhaps we can be correct enough about God.

            Bullshit, Freud and Jung are still referred to all the time, and the role they played has had a lasting effect on psychology. They're largely the reason why psychology is often referred to as pseudo-science.

            But this isn't the end of the argument. Trannies (not including the ones who make attempts to biologically change themselves into women) define women in a metaphysical sense, not a biological sense, hence why they refer to the female "gender" as opposed to the female "sex." They dislocate gender from sex like the metaphysician dislocates words from experience until his sentences refer to nothing with an experiential or biological basis.

            the sex-gender distinction goes back to beauvoir, preceding the conception of trans people by decades. it’s also an increasingly outmoded concept in queer theory circles, with butler criticizing the idea of strictly defined biological sex as far back as the 90s. if you’re going to make a high-iq philosophical attack on trans people, do some fricking reading first you moron.

            The lineage of CBT can be traced to psychoanalysis and it's currently being replaced with a paradigm dependant on psychopharmaceuticals (i.e. patient centered therapy by way of Rogers has been diminished).

            >Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) is the first of the modern cognitive behavior therapies (CBTs) and was developed from 1953 to 1955, after I had abandoned the practice of psychoanalysis, which I had been doing since 1947. I was therefore a neo-Freudian—and more of a neo-Adlerian—who followed the procedures of Karen Horney, Erich Fromm, and other analytic revisionists. I also used the humanistic-existentialist teachings of my training analyst, Dr. Richard Hulbeck. I decided in 1953 to stop calling myself an analyst and became much more active-directive and behavioral than I had previously been. During my teens, I devoured Asian, Greek, and Roman philosophy, especially that of Confucius, Lao-Tsu, Siddharta Gautama Buddha, Socrates, Epicurus, Epictetus, and Marcus Aurelius, and started formulating my own rational principles. Unfortunately, my psychoanalytic training and practice sidetracked me somewhat. So when I largely abandoned psychoanalysis for more cognitive-behavioral methods, I reread considerable philosophy and came up with REBT, which combines behaviorism with philosophy.

            No they're not. Freud initially wanted to ground his theories in materialism but recognized the technology didn't exist for him to do so. I'd have to look up the exact theory but Freud's concept of how the brain stores memory/experience remains one of the foundational heuristics of psychology/neuroscience (his relationship to "psychoanalysis" just overshadows else).

        That depends entirely on which ones you are referring to, the Stoics thought the whole cosmos was some kind of rational force(logos) but they didn't really think it was some incorporeal being, as everything was material. They also held the view that we have natural preconceptions to be good but that it gets corrupted.

          Fear of punishment is not why you have to follow God's will.

          The Stoic philosophy was very theological in nature. Virtue, for the Stoics is to conform yourself to Divine Will. The Sage would be someone with knowledge of divine and human matters who follow the Divine Will "consistently"

            christian anglo translators mangle all kinds of words to imply that a belief system is just christianity wearing a hat. they did it to the chinese “mandate of heaven,” to confucius’ “rituals,” to the greek “logos,” to plato’s “realm of the forms,” and so on and so on. it’s the equivalent of an arab assuming everyone who mentions anything even resembling divinity is talking about allah, or an atheist dismissing all religions as fundamentally the same. by participating in this willful ignorance, you’re watering down your own faith.

            obviously not. the point is much more basic. to the greeks, there is no one divine will; there are many gods with contradictory wills. to act in accordance with logos is simply not to resist your nature, or your position in the universe. a hymn to zeus isn’t an act of submission to a monotheistic god who decrees right and wrong; it’s a pledge of allegiance to the most powerful god among many, remarkable not for his virtue but for his strength. keep in mind that this is the same zeus who regularly transforms into animals and rapes women while in animal form. the virtue isn’t in following zeus’ ethics, but in knowing better than to resist him, just as one knows better than to resist any other force of nature.

            There is no possible way of translating the Stoics where they didn't have a religious view of their philosophy. This can be seen in Pagan commentaries on Stoic philosophy, for instance.
            Also, Modern Stoics are mostly atheistic. They don't disagree that Ancient Stoicism was religious in nature. They just "throw away" that part and try to get the therapeutical one. In my opinion, it doesn't make sense. But anyway, they don't deny that Ancient Stoics were religious.

            >sarcasm aside, treating a non-philosopher as your primary source for understanding stoicism is silly. that would be like listening to christian rock to understand theology.

            What I'm going to say is very basic knowledge.
            Cleanthes was one of the most important Stoic philosophers.
            He was a direct student of the founder of Stoicism. The 2nd Head of the Stoic school. The master of the most influential Stoic philosopher. The man who coined the Stoic motto of "Living in accordance with Nature".

    Morality is the sum of all value-judgments of a particular group with a cohesive, unified view of the world. You can't not have morality because everybody has views that they hold to be ideal or at least better than others, and everybody also has views about people and groups besides themselves and their ingroup.

      There's probably a reference point in Ancient Greek history (albeit recorded in their myth/history hybrid). Maybe also the Hittites? I don't have enough background knowledge here but other anons probably do.

        No, I’ve looked. There are analogues but only in relation and not degree. The late Roman Republic was lacking in moral virtue by Roman standards but not to the degree you could say our civilization lacks moral virtue by Western standards. That’s the enormous irony. The pre-Christian pagans are ironically better Christians than we are.

    >Anybody else disturbed by atheist normies' moral nihilism?
    Not really. Most people do not nor have ever developed their own morals. For most of human canon people outsource their morality to the group consensus, they do not think 'is this moral' they think at conscious and unconscious levels 'what will everyone else say or do if I consider this moral'. It is why people get taken in by trends, propaganda, and dumb pop-political movements. This is, to some degree, a smart thing to do. If you are surrounded by 99 people who say something is black, when it is in fact white, it is not necessarily a good idea to fight that battle.

    I'm disturbed by the fact that they have never truly had a re-consideration of all values. You might say "But what about the m-m,uh lefties". No, a true. Harsh. consideration of all your values. That's the problem. These people don't go through with it rigorously and most of them just have this vague rejection of whatever their parents liked. This sign of weakness goes both ways. Rejecting your parents in the pure act of rejection is moronic. Following them in the pure act of following them is moronic. Truly re-consider everything.

    Most people won't do it because it would break them.

    I think people inherit their morals from their civilization to a huge degree. In that sense, they don’t arrive at morals philosophically, but only attempt to defend them philosophically. If the status quo is one that affirms moral nihilism, that is what many people will accept as moral and they will only take any interest in philosophy in so far as philosophy it is useful for defending that status quo and if it’s not useful, they won’t engage with it or introspect at all.

      Existentialism is a sort of religion too. Unfortunately, it leads to dogmatically pushing bad philosophy of science. There really is not good empirical support for reductionism but it is assumed to be true until decisively proven otherwise? Why? Have we had a whole ton of successful reductions? Nope. Even basic quantum phenomena show emergence and chemistry hasn't been reduced after 100+ years and vast leaps in computational power.

      But the existentialist needs something like reductionism to be true so that the world is absurd, meaningless, and valueless. They can't have the possibility of a natural grounding of value, and you see this even coming up in the EES debate in biology. Despite all the evidence, evolution has to remain absolutely mindless and about only genes, and so you get dogmatic enforcement from on high and handwringing about teleology somehow coming back.

      But this stuff is basically the substitute for religion for many in the academy, and so the problem is similar to when research challenged the foundations of Christianity.

      Since Camus and Sartre's day the positivist vision of truth as objectivity has been BTFO, while relationality and context has been shown to be essential to the concept of information (which in turn is huge across the sciences), leading to their asking for "inherit, objective, in-itself meaning," looking like a strawman. Basically, it finds no meaning and value in the world based on a broken definition of what "objective" would mean. Now objectivity tends to be grounded in intersubjectivity, because the positivist view led to incoherence.

    this doesn't happen. in fact, when you look at a list of countries ranked by "certainty in the existence in god" you tend to find the safest, highest quality of life, most stable countries have the lowest rates of belief, and the higher the "certainty" rate is, the more of a shit hole that country is. you seem to be inventing things in your head to be afraid of.
