      Daniel Dennett's contributions to philosophy were not only profound but also transformative, reshaping how philosophy interacts with science. His approach exemplified a critical yet constructive engagement with scientific disciplines, a methodology that has deeply influenced philosophical inquiry across various fields.
      Dennett was a staunch advocate for the integration of philosophy and science, arguing that philosophical assumptions underpin all scientific endeavors. He famously stated that there is no such thing as philosophy-free science; rather, there is only science that has not critically examined its philosophical underpinnings. This perspective highlighted the importance of philosophy in providing a deeper understanding and foundation for scientific research, urging that philosophical inquiry should not be an afterthought but a precursor to robust scientific methodology. One of Dennett's most significant impacts was on how philosophy grapples with evolutionary theory. He recognized that modern science, especially evolutionary biology, profoundly transforms the questions at the heart of philosophy. This acknowledgment wasn't just theoretical; it had practical implications, influencing fields as diverse as the philosophy of mind and the philosophy of physics. His ideas encouraged philosophers to reconsider and reframe traditional philosophical problems in light of scientific advancements, particularly those offered by evolutionary theory.
      Dennett's work extended well beyond his "home territory."

        His philosophical insights have had a notable impact on the philosophy of physics, among other areas. This influence is evident in how philosophical discussions about physical phenomena now often incorporate evolutionary principles, a testament to Dennett's advocacy for a cross-disciplinary approach. His ability to connect complex scientific concepts with philosophical discourse has made his work a cornerstone in contemporary philosophical and scientific discussions.
        Beyond his academic achievements, Dennett was celebrated for his ability to communicate complex ideas with clarity and enthusiasm. His writings and lectures have not only educated but also inspired many in and outside of academia. His approach made philosophy accessible and relevant, bridging the gap between abstract philosophical inquiry and everyday scientific applications.

            i don't doubt how anesthesia works or that it works but it's pretty far to assume that consciousness shuts off when the brain dies as we cannot account for the material origin of consciousness.

    Quite a loss. I agree with folks like Andrew Brook and Don Ross that Dennett (on whom I have written) built a full philosophical system. His last interview must have been a YouTube chat with Jordan Peterson, just days ago. Looking back now, I am even more annoyed that Peterson (on whom I have also written) spoke so much and listened so little… R.I.P., mister Dennett.

            well if your brain can't enable your consciousness it's basically "dying" from your perspective. you experience and collect those experiences. if that's broken no more experiencing for you. at least now/here.
            from what I understand, if we are enabled by our brains, after death we should insta travel to "judgement day" if there is such a thing. or whatever, next thing you can experience, which would have some justification for happening. this reality is kind of weird. so theoretically you should experience the most likely thing you can, after you "die" here/now. stands to reason you get out of sync with here/now, so whatever happens next should be in some other time/place.
            also excluding some quantum immortality thing.

            If you think of this universe as a sort of analog computer which computes us, then (if there's value to us) the most important state would always be the latest (our self state/brain state). if that's what's always "saved" by God, then your experience should be linear.
            if God (simulation architect, whatever) decides some earlier state is the best one, you'd continue from there in other time/place. but you'd forget anything else you experienced past that point, here.
            the most we're (sort-of) certain of is this life. so we don't know if we existed before, and how God could manipulate this reality to make it so (You) eventually form, at least .. at genetic level? I can't quite schizo my way into reincarnation. I tried but couldn't really find something that would make sense here. not saying it's not possible, just that I could find a way. for all intents and purposes this seems at most like a sort of "soul farm", we pop up here and *maybe* continue indefinitely (?) in a linear/serial fashion.
            so either there's a God having access to your information, either there's some quantum immortality thing, many worlds or weird shit like that, which also makes for you to pop up and have a long and strange experience based on what is ... possible I guess.

            Yeah, that sounds quite plausible. It sure is going to to be a wild ride, whatever it is that awaits conscious beings at large. Simple eternal oblivion sounds maybe a bit too simple, because that would require the observer (that just died) to exist in some form to be able to be in said oblivion.

        And no non-christians had rage in them? Don't want to turn this thread into theo-sociological discussion, but the fact that some cristians were asholes doesn't eliminate the fact that hatred is a sin in cristianity.
        We only humans, after all, so being cristian doesnt make you imune to sins, that just means you shold restrain them to live by precepts, that's kind of the point. So beliving in Christ and being a good cristian are two different things

          We have way bigger problems than this. Humans will start being replaced with AIs which make the same work for a fraction of a human price, and can seriously scale up. When humans are not needed for jobs, that's when humans + Christianity and other religions will go away. Well, most humans anyway.
          Religion was always a means to an end. Used concepts like free will for the "greater good". Not seeing reality for what it is is clearly a show stopper, sooner or later.

      It's not his philosophy, he was one of the many people having the same views. If you're not developing the atom bomb, somebody eventually will. He's more like an avatar, not the reason.
      Blaming him or Dawkins for your failures is shortsighted and childish. They are not "the reason" for your issues. It's not because of them that AI and other technologies are being developed. Even if you killed them long time ago we'd still be exactly here, in the very same state of things, and most likely others would have taken their place.
      When ideas of this scale start popping out it's not a matter of silencing certain people, the ideas naturally arise from the current state of things, at any time, in more people than one.

    He is in paradise now because NDEs are actually irrefutable proof that heaven really is awaiting us all because (1) people see things during their NDEs when they are out of their bodies that they should not be able to under the assumption that the brain creates consciousness, and (2) anyone can have an NDE and everyone is convinced by it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U00ibBGZp7o

    So any atheist or materialist or agnostic would be too if they had an NDE, so pic related is literally irrefutable proof of life after death. As one NDEr pointed out:

    >"I'm still trying to fit it in with this dream that I'm walking around in, in this world. The reality of the experience is undeniable. This world that we live in, this game that we play called life is almost a phantom in comparison to the reality of that."

    If NDEs were just hallucinations then extreme atheists and neuroscientists who had NDEs would agree that they were halluinations after having them. But the opposite happens as NDEs convince every skeptic when they have a really deep NDE themselves.

I think if you try to put quotation marks around a patch of your visual field (e.g., by gesturing at ‘that patch of red in the lower-left quadrant of my visual field’), some of the core things included in your implicit intension will make the gesture non-referring. Asking about ‘but what am I really subjectively experiencing?’ is like going: ‘but what is my deja-vu experience really a repetition of?’ The error is trickier, though, because the erroneous metarepresentation is systematic and perception-like (like a hallucination or optical illusion, but one meta level up) rather than judgment-like (like a delusion or hunch).

        >Like Luke said, believing I’m a zombie in practice just means I value something functionally very similar to consciousness, ‘z-consciousness’. But ‘z-consciousness’ is first and foremost a (promissory note for a) straw-behaviorist, third-person theoretical concept. Thinking in those terms — starting with one box, some of whose (physical, neuronal, behavioral…) components I sometimes misdescribe as ‘mind’, rather than starting with separate conceptual boxes for ‘mind’ and ‘matter’ and trying to glue them together as tightly as possible — has been a really weird (z-)experience. It’s had some interesting effects on my intuitions over the past few years.

    >Big Boys of English Speaking academia
    >Singer
    The philosophical equivalent of Judge Judy, Singer's self-contradictory pap ("abortion and infanticide are acceptable because these immature humans are incapable or rational preference" vs. "rationality is not a requirement for ethical conduct. Any irrational being will avoid pain, which is why cruelty to animals is unethical", which are flatly contradictory positions). Makes money by writing books that tell Liberals 'doing what you want is A-OK"
    A buffoon.
    >Chomsky
    A decent linguist, his work in every other field is no more (or less) than self-serving rent seeking which he publicly admits that he, himself, does not believe.
    Darn good at making a buck of gullible college students, but (unless you are speaking of linguistics, where he is very good) not a big academic.
    >Dawkins
    A mediocre-at-best scientist who will leave exactly zero mark on actual science, he became popular as a writer of PopSci books. When that income source dried up (because his theories were soundly thrashed by scientists) he switched to a series of popular books trashing what he thinks religious people might believe.
    Never was a great thinker, never will be.
    >Rorty
    A man who counted on his readers having never heard of Gorgias, Rorty took facile rhetoric, relabeled it neopragmatism, and sold it like snake oil.
    >Chalmers
    About time an actual academic appeared. although, to be fair, while he does a fine job of reminding everyone of the hard problem, he has no answers. Which is no one's fault.
    >Dennett
    Refuses to use proper terms, mainly to hide that, deep down, he he knows any clear statement of his theories leads to eye-rolling
    Not a serious academic.

    This list is a list of "People that stupid people think are smart"

    Science and Atheism are utterly moronic and super easy to debunk like a trumpian-russian fake news: you have atheists who claim that immaterial math formulas they themselves invented run the material universe every millisecond across billions of light years, since 13 billions years ago LOL. how is this not moronic.
    Oh and by the way, when they are asked to say where do those immaterial formulas live and where they come from and how they act on matter, they can't fricking answer, can they?
    If the universe is uncaused then why does it have physical laws that it must follow? Clearly those laws are actually imposed on the universe.
    Ask an atheist how a photon, stemming from the annihilation of an electrons and a positron , knows that it has to follow Maxwell's rules, as soon as the photon comes into existence whereas what they call ''physical laws'' are not found inside their tiny particles (inside particles there are just other particles lmao who scripted this crap).... Just ask him. And I can tell you what you will observe, because it's true cause and effect: the atheist will be in his most vulnerable state, drymouthed, sweating profusely, hands trembling, in a state of intense anguish, because he knows he has no comeback. Zero. Jack shit. At this point in time, the atheist is consumed by a fear that is darker than the terror of death, which will never leave him until he dies.

    You know how atheists say a bunch of deformed illiterate inbreds rolling in shit, beating their children and women anthropomorphized Nature when they said gods were an amalgamation of the base fears of early humans. Well since the day a few atheist bugmen created computers, they are saying the universe is like their high-school calculators too, but bigger lol. That's their big brain idea and that's how dumb atheists are lol.

    >Your brain is like a cult leader, and you are its follower. If your brain tells you it's conscious, you believe it. If your brain says there's a special "what-it's-like-ness" to experience beyond mechanical processes, you believe it.
    So I am separate from my brain? Like some kind of... conscious entity separate from the physical structures of my body?
