re: A question for the liberal posters on this board: The culture of offense - rbWarEagle
[quote]With this being a college related site I would expect there to be a lot of liberals on this board.[/quote] This board has a concentration of folks in the South East, that's why there are a handful of actual liberals....

[quote]That was in fact quite solid. Hence, why my original post said that I didn't care which side we're talking about, there has most certainly been a HUGE sea change generationally [/quote] Well, you can claim it has to do with generational differences, but I believe it is a by-product of the...

Roger Klarvin had the best point in the whole thread: [quote]The modern western phenomenon of taking offense and crying persecution over every little perceived slight is a ubiquitous problem not isolated to just progressives. It stems from a larger problem: The belief that the best way to score p...

re: Official: Auburn Football team reports August 3rd; Fall practice begins August 4 - rbWarEagle
No way. If Barber was the best, he'd be getting the most reps, period. I'm all for Barber and I've said in the past that I thought he was our best RB talent. The dude runs with a chip on his shoulder and destroys people. If he's good enough, he'll get the reps....

[quote]But yet Johnson couldn't beat out Nick Marshall who currently does not play QB anymore. Sims actually plays QB for someone right now.[/quote] This really represents why it's hard to take your OP seriously. This regurgitated line has been explained over and over again. Marshall was a home r...

[quote]I don't believe they necessarily apply to each individual, no. [/quote] Holy cow, I'm intrigued by what I think you're saying here. I've got a ton of stuff to do tomorrow, though, so I'm out. Next time you see me on here, try to remind me if you can. I want to know specifics on this quote...

re: I Could Never Be a Liberal - rbWarEagle
[quote]I believe in a God that created a "best morality", and it's our job, as time goes by and we grow and learn, to etch out that humanity and see it writ large across the global population. [/quote] Ahh, I understand that idea. I disagree, but I think we essentially land on the same path....

[quote]We might have different definitions of free will. Taking up ones plight in a set of predetermined routes willfully is free will to me, though I see the other viewpoint. [/quote] Then you don't believe in the colloquial notion of free will (I think)....

re: I Could Never Be a Liberal - rbWarEagle
[quote]There's one morality, and people fit on various planes or steps of that morality.[/quote] I tend to agree, but this belief usually stems from a belief in a god-given morality. I tend to agree because I think there is a best way to maximize human flourishing and that is the best "morality"....

re: I Could Never Be a Liberal - rbWarEagle
[quote]I see all morality as wholly subjective, and as more or less what's good for the herd at a given time. [/quote] I'm cool with that. I just think that some are better than others, objectively speaking, if we reduce it's importance down to the well-being of humans....

[quote]We can absolutely survey our surroundings, review our history, listen to the drumbeat of our species, and make an informed decision.[/quote] And I'm saying that none of that has to involve "free will". I also completely believe you can do those things which you mentioned. ...

re: I Could Never Be a Liberal - rbWarEagle
[quote]Morality is wholly subjective. [/quote] It can be viewed that way. But I think that, like most other things, morality is on a continuum. On that continuum there are better and worse moralities. That is to say, for instance, that the morality which motivates you to kill someone for backing...

[quote] It's hard to discount the force of will, though[/quote] My friend, I'm saying that "force of will" is also a function of the brain. Your force of will may be unique, but it isn't something you've constructed on your own. We are not the thinker of our thoughts....

:lol: Fair enough. One day I'd like you to participate in a sustained debate on the topic, though. [quote]Let's move on to morality. [/quote] Lovely topic. I think the sciences can determine the best morality. :popcorn:...
