    Re: Biological determinism and Free Will

    I absolutely had no choice but to click on that link…I think that says a lot about determinism and free will. With but a few words you compelled me, long distance, and directed my actions to dance to...

    Re: In the genes?

    Well ok, everyone is welcome to their opinion, of course, but that piece seemed more compelling than the few tangentially pertinent studies you linked to support your assertion. Maybe you're right,...

    Re: In the genes?

    I have read through the various links you have posted. They were informative and your treatment of the r\K theory seems convincing. However while reading through your stuff I detected a pattern, I...

    Re: In the genes?

    Those are interesting links, I was aware of contradictory studies, some seeing the effect ending around 2001, but other later studies (like the one I referenced in my original post) see no...

    Re: In the genes?

    Sadly the short answer is yes. But it is vastly more complicated than this simple statement would lead us to believe.

    Have you heard of the Flynn effect?

    'The Flynn effect is the substantial and long-sustained increase in both fluid and crystallized intelligence test scores measured in many parts of the world...
  9. Re: Sheep. Are we sheep? Are they sheep? Am I a sheep?

    I have been good, all things considered.

    I have changed plenty, when I first came to this board, those many years ago, I did believe in free will, now I don't. If I had free will I would have...
  10. Re: Sheep. Are we sheep? Are they sheep? Am I a sheep?

    Damaged, broken sheep. Dangerous and needing to be put down, but still part of the herd.
  11. Re: Sheep. Are we sheep? Are they sheep? Am I a sheep?

    I am in the sheep camp...we are all 100% sheep. It is the human condition. Even our rebellion is proscribed by the herd. Some of us may be on the outer edge of the flock, but as an ultra social...
  12. Re: Where do you guys stand on capitalism versus socialism versus etc?

    Well, I would like to say finding a cure for cancer, or climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, or putting a stop to world hunger, you know, something meaningful, or at least exciting. In reality I am, like...
  13. Re: Where do you guys stand on capitalism versus socialism versus etc?

    Despite my changing and evolving worldview (much more of a determinist than I used to be), I still think capitalisms is the best system for matching needs and need fulfillment that has ever been....
  14. Re: Any of you bastards ever met in real life?

    Yea! I got a mention. I am not forgot! No offense, but I really wouldn't want to meet any of you IRL. Separate domains, and all of that. I still cruise by here from time to time to see if there is...

    Here's the problem right here, if she is the sole owner of the soul then it might take an exorcism to evict her ass!!!
  16. Re: Satanic Monument for Oklahoma state capital

    Well, if guises were intentionally instrumental your worry might merit concern. Not to retread old ground here, but the guise of intention is post-hock storytelling to explain decisions and behavior...
  17. Re: Satanic Monument for Oklahoma state capital

    All of us are hypocrites, every single one of us. It is just more readily apparent in the case of the religious, since their proclaimed source of beliefs are public record, whereas that is not the...
  18. Re: Satanic Monument for Oklahoma state capital

    That is only one conception of the icon of Satan, which I think may be the point of this particular absurd bit of theater. Others may ‘worship’ Satan as ultimate rebel against the caprice of inhuman...

    Re: The VR dream is over...

    In the short run it will be good for Oculus, it will allow them to produce better hardware, faster, and at cheaper entry point, making VR gaming more exciting.

    But in the long run it looks pretty...

    Re: Prophecy

    I was going to stay away…but I couldn’t. The opposite of free will is causal determination, NOT predetermination. Quantum Uncertainty and Chaos Theory pretty much rule out predetermination. As such...

    Actually, I believe it does, especially if you take my previous post on page 2 into consideration. This being America I bet there are quite a few people that believe that the rapture could happen...
