I am very strongly outspoken.

That being said I am just into providing valid and reliable information or seeking valid and reliable information. I don’t treat people bad even if I did think they or their ideas where or seemed insane. I also strive to attack thinking and not people. And as long as people say the things are true to them and not probable facts in the world they expect me to agree with or believe, What I am saying about “they think it is true” is their delusion, as its only true to them when in reality its actually false..I don’t challenge what they wish to believe as to me people own themselves and this includes their beliefs. However this is not extended to behavior as in I will attack bad or harmful...

“metaphysical involves a philosophical naturalism not just

Many here “metaphysical” and think only of new age religion or ideas.   But this is wrong as I am a metaphysical naturalist and am vary atheist, antitheist, and antireligionst rejecting all superstitious, supernaturalism or magic thinking.   Metaphysical naturalism, also called ontological naturalism, philosophical naturalism, and scientific materialism is a worldview which holds that there is nothing but natural elements, principles, and relations of the kind studied by the natural sciences, i.e., those required to understand our physical environment by mathematical modelling. In contrast, methodological naturalism is an assumption of naturalism as a methodology of science, for which metaphysical naturalism provides only one possible ontological foundation. Broadly, the corresponding theological perspective is religious or spiritual naturalism actually a branch of larger supernaturalism as both think their versions of so called “religious or spiritual naturalism” to them involves the addition to supernatural concepts as if they deserve to be classed under their pseudo naturalism. More specifically, metaphysical naturalism rejects such supernatural concepts and explanations that are part of many religions or spiritual thinking.   Moreover, meta-physical, the prefix meta- is used to mean about (a category that comes after) such as concepts like “meta-cognition” (i.e. cognition about cognition), “meta-emotion” (i.e. emotion about emotion), “meta-discussion” (i.e. discussion about discussion), “meta-joke” (i.e. joke about jokes), and “metaprogramming” (i.e. writing programs that manipulate programs). So metaphysical is physical about physical or what is or can be classed or understood as physical. It is wrongly used as magical thinking which is demonstrating philosophy...

Superstitionism is the Mother of Supernaturalism, thus Religion is its child.

Supersessionism is the Mother of Supernaturalism, thus Religion is its child.   How does superstitious and magical thinking conform or limit how faith introduces religious and sacralizing thinking particularly on the concept of gods?   Faith hurts itself as it desires to build on its self which only serve to topple the stack of cards it invents to shore it up trying to create more faith. Thus faith will always involve a willingness to not understand and offer this as a kind of evidence. True believers are utilizing faith as a product to conceive the true concept of gods are then left saying “faith is beyond reason thus with such reasonless faith in god nothing is impossible”, “you must trust in faith and believe even if it contradicts reason in order that you may understand”, Or the believer will say something like “I believe in faith in order that I might understand and make sense of god.”   Let’s look how that plays out in the bible: 1 Corinthians 2:5 your faith might not rest on human wisdom; Proverbs 3:5 don’t lean not on your own understanding; Hebrews 11:1 faith is the substance of things hoped for, evidence of things not seen; Proverbs 1:7 fear of god is the beginning of knowledge.   Gods need to be well defined to be understood however the more they are defined the more problematic abilities come into thoughtful challenge because there unattainable complexities comes into play defying reason. Yet on the other end if gods are simply left undefined they are meaningless or cease as being able to hold reason as be...

I am also a Rationalist, valuing and requiring reason and evidence to support beliefs or propositions as well as am against all pseudohistory, pseudoscience, and...

Virtue, Kindness, and Human flourishing?

Virtue, Kindness, and Human flourishing? “As an Axiological Atheist, I wish for Human flourishing so I value Kindness”   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” Ref   I agree in a general way with Socrates, that “human flourishing” (eudaimonia) and the standard of virtues, such as self-control, courage, justice, kindness, wisdom and related qualities of mind and inner self are absolutely crucial if a person is to lead a good and happy life....
