As an Axiological Atheist, I wish for Human flourishing

Eudaimonia (commonly translated as happiness or welfare; however, “human flourishing” is likely more accurate. It is a central concept in Aristotelian ethics and political philosophy, along with the terms “virtue” or “excellence”, and “practical or ethical wisdom”. In Aristotle’s works, eudaimonia was (based on older Greek tradition) used as the term for the highest human good, and so it is the aim of practical philosophy, including ethics and political philosophy, to consider (and also experience) what it really is, and how it can be achieved. One of the central concerns of ancient ethics involved discussion of the links between virtue of character and happiness (eudaimonia). As with all other ancient ethical thinkers Socrates thought that all human beings wanted eudaimonia more than anything else. seems to have thought that virtue is both necessary and sufficient for eudaimonia. Socrates is convinced that virtues such as self-control, courage, justice, piety, wisdom and related qualities of mind and soul are absolutely crucial if a person is to lead a good and happy (eudaimon) life. Virtues guarantee a happy life eudaimonia. For example, in the Meno, with respect to wisdom, he says: “everything the soul endeavours or endures under the guidance of wisdom ends in happiness”...

The only thing that causes rape, is a rapist.

The only thing that causes rape, is a rapist.   Some people say that how a woman dresses or acts causes rape. No this is wrong and is victim blaming.   I get it people own their bodies they at any time can say I don’t want this, stop I changed my mind or I don’t want to Finnish all times the person can stop any sex they own their body.   Here is a personal story:   I one time was having sex with a woman I did not know well and just to set the scene I can at times go 30 min before cumming and at 15 min of having sex, the woman said, “can you hurry up.” I said, I can’t. Then she said, “well then stop now.” So without cumming, I stopped. I was pissed but stopped. It was her body and her right. I said, cool but I don’t want to see you again and that is all that happened. No force. No rape.   Just because you don’t get your way does not mean you get to hurt or violate people.   Thus, to restate the fact, Rape is ALWAYS caused by the rapist violating the body sovereignty of the person being...

What is a gOD but a Theistic Mass Confusion of Reality

Theists like to confuse the understanding of atheism to lessen its obvious reason. So here’s a definition of atheism: all offered claims of god(s) are baseless and devoid of a shred of testable or provable evidence and the claims of or about gods either don’t represent in reality or claim to represent things contrary to reality requiring a conclusion of atheism (lack of belief or disbelief in...

I am an Axiological Atheist?

I am an axiological atheist   If you wonder what that means here is a little on that:   Axiological Atheism, axiological (value theory and or value science) atheism, also considered a constructive form of atheism. Axiological Atheism not only rejects the existence of god(s) it favors things with real meaning and value like humans and humanity as well as the science of value in formal axiology.   This form of atheism favors humanity as the absolute source of ethics and values, and permits individuals to resolve moral problems without resorting to mythical things like gOD(s).   Marx, Freud, and Sartre all used this argument of axiological atheism whether they knew it or not to convey messages of liberation, full-development, and unfettered happiness. Axiological Atheism answers or offers a different thinking to one of the most common criticisms of some forms of atheism, that they have no bases of or for morality and or value.   Axiological atheism can be thought to believe in “good” utilizing the understanding of value theory and formal axiology holding that there can be truth in objective morality or universal ethics holding that life can be meaningful showing to that denying the existence of a god(s) does not have to lead to moral relativism, leave one with no moral or ethical foundation, or somehow must renders life meaningless and miserable.   I thus as an axiological atheist believe good or basic morality seeing it as natural and evolutionary such as all mammals seem to express or display elements of morality such as compassion, empathy, altruism, group bonding, shame, etc. but we human higher reasoning...
