re: Alabama vs Auburn Position Comparison - rbWarEagle
[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...

[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....

[quote]I have free will within confines[/quote] Ah, but what confines? We're on the way to agreeing. My thoughts are that, for one, the universe is deterministic in nature. I'm sure you know what that entails, so I'll move on to my next point. Your brain is the product of several things tha...

[quote]It isn't, because we control our thoughts. [/quote] Do we? I completely disagree with you. [quote] But to say that our brains run everything without influence of the mind is to say that we aren't really people. We're automatons, controlled by some larger physical force with some plan or...
