And on a more philosophical level, I disagree that spreading your genetic material does not keep you alive. If your genetic material lives on, so do you. Your consciousness dies, but that's just your lived experience, not everything you are.
Having children is cheating death.

Being schizo is ok and is actually the default setting from not drinking all the shit the government puts into drinking water. How come nobody questions what's in there but happily chugs?
I drink inhuman amounts of unfiltered tap water and I'm still a schizo. Can the government do ANYTHING right?

The current food crisis is planned by the elites, but its a stealthy health program to fight obesity and heart disease
I disagree of course with most of what you said (it is an unpopular opinion thread) but I don't want to argue with them... however I am genuinely curious about this point about the fighting obesity and heart disease. What led you to believe this?

  • If you believe in a concept of authority, if you see any human - living or dead - as a reputable source of wisdom including me (and you)- you should be ashamed of yourself.
  • Thus, philosophy is a bunch of bull. If you see philosophy as a legit science and think bored old rich people with an itchy tongue and a great feeling of self-importance are worthy to spend your time reading/listening to them - you should be ashamed of yourself as well.
  • Tradition as a concept is enormously dumb and should be dead already - it's like homeopathy, religion, astrology - someone said something at some time, so we need to follow for don't-ask-why reasons. Because it's a tradition.
  • People who play videogames should be sent to concentration camps.
  • Porn shouldn't even exist in the first place.
  • Reading books won't make you smart.
  • A person who happened to be born on a certain area of the Earth shouldn't be forced to fight and die for said area. Treason is fake. Nobody owes loyalty to random people who happen to be born at the same place you were.
  • Moreso, nobody owes loyalty to those who are blood related. Unless it is your child, because, obviously, it was your deliberate fault.
  • People who want to have a child should be tested for basic child-raising knowledge, mental stability, financial conditions.

For the world to be at peace the west must be counterbalanced by other nations.

premise one is agreeable. premise 2 "all philosophy is bullshit" is bullshit. the whole point of philosophy is to question things. What's practiced now in academia is mostly scientism apology and political correctness, sure, but just because the department is labeled "philosophy" doesn't mean the people there are actually doing anything reasonably considered philosophical. If you accept premise one, extreme skepticism of all authority, this should in fact drive you further into philosophy, since any position taken on a political matter is going to have some sort of opposing perspective, thus demanding a philosophical analysis of the two points of view. In fact, by even stating these beliefs in the way you have, you have taken multiple philosophical points of view: anti-traditionalism, anti-family, etc. (a position Marx, someone who is often claimed to have been a philosopher, has advocated for).

furthermore, you first bullet point is itself a position, called "philosophical anarchism" https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/authority/#ConLegPolAut not to be confused with street punks trashing a neighborhood.

so while im sympathetic, your point of view contradicts itself.

Some of what you said was based but a lot of what you said was cringe so for that you're a dead man.

The oligarchs """predicted""" the food shortage in a simulation, just like they """predicted""" the pandemic in Event 201 and Operation Lockstep.
The oligarchs constantly want to ban meat and governments all around the world warn about tobacco and alcohol, medicine gets developed and we get access to that medicine (altough much later usually) In research meat eating has numerous times been strongly associated with mortality and everything that is leBad basically, the opposing Keto and Carnivore side cannot support itself with clinical research and just rests on theory and criticizing the SAD diet and study design (Not ALL cholesterol, they didn't go down with carbs enough, there were carbs together with the meat etc) So i conclude, that the oligarchs are actually somewhat concerned about the health of their cattle, like actual farmers would be too. (They present themselves as "philanthropists", something good is likely to come out of the fulfillment of their messiah-complex)
Society today is too libtarded to cage fatties in an abstinence chamber to sober out (fast. Surgical treatment has many side effects, pharmacological too and both don't work too well over time.
Since the problem is not solved by self-discipline, a food crisis is created which financially forces you to fast and get in shape. The people most hit by the crisis are the poor, the people most hit by the obesity pandemic, are also the poor. It's quite genius tbh

Well, if someone can place a nametag on things I believe, that won't make me believe that the system of tagging is valid, so I don't see how it's contradictory
(thinking of asexuals who somehow belong under the lgbtabc umbrella, while being irrelevant to sexual orientation by the very name)
Those - philosophy schools I mean - are mostly obvious things, should be studied within sociology and psychology, biology maybe - since it's about how human brain perceive reality. Don't think the latter is possible now, but in the future, maybe. And maybe there are specific chemicals that make a human believe mind comes first!

Oh I want all people who are not entirely agree with every word in thier chosen religion, all postulates, everything - to be excommunicated, just banned to call themselves a follower of a certain religion.
You just can't be an adept if you don't believe in it entirely.
"Yes but", "good ideas but", "something is right but" - that's not how you approach a religion! If you call yourself, say, a christian, I should expect you believe all things christians believe.
If you choose to accept only some of them - that's normal, in fact - we all do in a way (any religion, I think - I'm sure there a couple ok ideas here or there anyway) But that doesn't make you a christian.
As for your point - I'd say it was pretty much always about culture. Feeling of being together, sharing mostly basic ideas, being connected within your community and find connections out of it, away from your birth place - expecting compassion, shelter, help from strangers who happen to share your religious beliefs.


>The death of The Simpsons didn't happen by season 9, but rather after the Movie in 2007 (season 19)
Also have this, you all: Simpsons are not dead. :mad:
I don't think someone perceive season 2 with the rules of season 9, why then you should see season 25 in terms of season 9 or 10 or whatever.

How do you respond to these allegations, @Jessica3cho? Are you a pedo, a creep, or are you sexy?

I disagree with this one, i found my fiancé online, we start just chatting, then we start meeting in real life, and now we have plans of marriage in about 6 months, so, i think that would be better if it was like "Every relationship can be long lasting if you both sides are willing to put their part" always do your best, have good communication, trust and love, and you can have a lifelong partner no matter how.

i think the real issue is that is highly likely they are putting on a persona or don't even live in your country

Might or not, there is not an actual investigation on catfishing, so the best thing you can do in that regard is try, life always reward the brave and the wicked, so, if she ended up being a scam, well, keep going with your life, learn from your mistakes and found someone in real life, i don't think that the medium is not important, but the interaction itself, tbh.

i meant less catfishing, which im sure happens to people, more just that people generally put on a different personality when they go online - but yes i agree less people should be pussies, just do it, what is there to lose, its more of an anglosphere thing to have 'crushes' i've heard, every friend i have outside of anglosphere tells me story like "i realised i liked her so i asked her out after the lesson"
