nichols_ml he wrote the history of western philosophy, which is a foundation for any first timer
sherimar he was agnostic wasn't he?
amishinternetco hi sheri
nichols_ml agnostic-atheist yes
smoke2jointzzz allow me father, let me swing the good ol sword against this enemies head
sherimar hey amish
amishinternetco hi smoke
user477 Yeah amazing work.
smoke2jointzzz I like Hitchens, the old philosophy especially old atheistic writers reminds me of people who were into introductory classes
Father Barnabas Smoke, well, I don't think that will be necessary.
coronaspinarum Hitchens' brother, Peter, is better
smoke2jointzzz I wish I knew more, I mean susskind, Krauss I love maths/logic/science(physics)
nichols_ml betrand russell is a pure intellectual, but not someone who was grounded in his own times....almost an atheist monk detached from reality
smoke2jointzzz Peter was alright, I loved Hitchens' ferociousness
nichols_ml hitchens was a front line atheist, you don't get let off easy....but, i love sam harris, way more Essene, naturalist experiencial folk
The Dark Flower I like you Corona
The Dark Flower You are a cool dude
smoke2jointzzz sam harris not only looks like a rat
smoke2jointzzz but debates like one
smoke2jointzzz i dislike that man a lot
nichols_ml i love him
The Dark Flower I look like a Flower
smoke2jointzzz i bet you enjoy peterson too
nichols_ml i think the contrasts between religious and atheist folk are defined well by him
smoke2jointzzz waste of skin
nichols_ml i guess i don't view humans that way
coronaspinarum Jordan Peterson is fighting the good fight for free speech
smoke2jointzzz peterson is alright, harris is going into a world he doesn't know
smoke2jointzzz and peterson is all pretend science
nichols_ml peterson goes into the wilderness and lives off the land for months at a time, its a spiritualexperience that i love about modern atheists
nichols_ml i mean harris, sorry
nichols_ml peterson stands up to intellectual nonscence
smoke2jointzzz i can back that up about himd
smoke2jointzzz There's really nothing positive I can say about Harris
nichols_ml he is the most positive example of atheism i know of
nichols_ml extremely reflective, and willing to experiment about his own existence
nichols_ml antonian monk like
sherimar goodnight all, God bless
nichols_ml night sheri
smoke2jointzzz goodnight, god bless
smoke2jointzzz i'll take another look nichols not today or tomorrow
Father Barnabas (((((((Sheri))))))))))))))
smoke2jointzzz sometime i haven't read or listened to new debates or people in philo in a while
Father Barnabas Abba hello.
nichols_ml sam harris is noted for his letter to a christian nation
nichols_ml but, i think you might like his adventures sense then
smoke2jointzzz i tried liking him about 10 years ago
smoke2jointzzz maybe he matured not a post phd student trying to fit in
nichols_ml that was his hey day of making college rounds, check him out now, he is doing some pretty tough spritual stuff for a man his age now
nichols_ml i will always enjoy the writings of jordan peterson, or michael schermer, but i think sam harris brings it all back around for an atheist like me, the right kind of realist
nichols_ml conservative who has adopted real ideas with religious and non religious common sense
nichols_ml sorry catholic room, i know its not yalls thing to talk about athiests
Father Barnabas Well, I do wonder about something...
Father Barnabas ...Nichols, I find it interesting that you, as an atheist, spend so much time in a Catholic room, and no doubt you are cordial and even supportive. But I cannot help but ask, "why?"
nichols_ml 10 years ago i would never be here friar b
Father Barnabas Okay... so...?
nichols_ml i think my kind of atheism and religious folk are way closer then my connection with what is happening in this country then it was 10 years ago
nichols_ml liberalism to me once once about social freedom, now liberalism is about hate and restrictions
Father Barnabas I am not sure what the state of the nation has to do with you frequenting a Catholic room, however, unless you are indirectly saying that you tend to be more conservative in general.
Father Barnabas Ah, as I thought.
nichols_ml i find cathlics to be more forgiving and understanding then the folk i once thought were
Father Barnabas Because being conservative is not about hatred and silencing others.
amishinternetco nite all be safe
smoke2jointzzz God be with you.
Father Barnabas Peace.
nichols_ml i think the first week i came here i got pretty drunk and said some pretty awful things to a folk here in a sexual nature, then you e-mailed me and told me about it, i felt pretty bad about it....
nichols_ml i apologized
nichols_ml and it was accepted
nichols_ml couple years ago
