On the Nature of Value (axiology)

On the Nature of Value (axiology)   Do we need to value and is value a limited thing humans have or simply create? Is value a thing we find or a thing we add, can we avoid value? Are we too close to value to be able to evaluate value? Is the problem with value is that humans are nearly inseparable from value? But suppose we gather distance, what would we see— would we find that all value is contingent on the one observing it? Multi-modality of morality, or Nonlinear moral reasoning, is not the norm or usually not happening in repeated sets of moral reasoning. Because when looking at a group of exhibited moral choices, there is a standard line of similar moral reasoning to some extent, even if unacknowledged. This argument seems to hold support because if not adhering to a liner moral reasoning of some kind, ones moral behavior would unpredictably fluctuate, though most do not or not much, thus exhibiting a standard even if its a multi-modality. I in fact intentionally employ a multi-modality approach to moral reasoning and thus moral behavior.   To me, I feel all cognitive aware being have or set value and values not only humans. But then we can say that this is a part of our basic needs? Value does not seem to be something that we can avoid any more than others basic needs; unless of course, we have stopped valuing our continued success, well-being or existence. But to stop valuing seems to me to actually still apply a value of or to nonvalue. Thus, as I see it we are still...

Interview with Courtney Connatser

Interview with Courtney Connatser I wanted to have a good recorded chat and hear about her life, thoughts, anarchism, humanism, feminism, and atheism, all of it, as she is an interesting person. I think Courtney Connatser has ideas that people need to hear, her voice and thoughts matter, as they are so wonderfully authentic. Moreover, I wanted to let people hear other voices, to hear from unique women, or other communities that are marginalized, subjugated or oppressed, and thus I give you an interview with genuine and passionate, artist, activist, and creative writer Courtney Connatser. “I want to change the world still, but I also want to stay in and only face myself most days. You just need to accept your weirdness. I’m a recluse, sweetheart, with no friends. I do embrace my weirdness. Your looks aren’t important, Your popularity isn’t important, and Your intelligence isn’t important. Anyone who makes you feel like a lesser person in one of those three categories, you can ignore.“ – Courtney Connatser Courtney Connatser would say she is between Ignostic Atheism and Antitheist Atheism. I am a firebrand atheist. I’m an anti-accommodationist to organized religion, she would be more accommodating to personal spirituality. Her personal held belief is that evidence shows a dissemination of traditional organized religions. Especially the monotheistic (Man-o-theism) religions, one of which she grew up in. Christianity. So, she finds them easier to combat and to ridicule. Her personal experiences with that religion as far as discrimination against other races, religions, sexualities outside the norm, lifestyles outside the norm leads me to the conclusion that it is more important to combat because through the texts...
