should deniers be punished?

is it important if they are right or wrong?

is the treatment the deniers receive justified, is there actual harm caused by denial?

please keep conversation away from actual debate about the existence of the Holocaust and keep it about the ethics of creating laws to make certain points of view punishable by imprisonment

Calling out childish people for being childish is perfectly acceptable here, since we don't want it. Eliza didn't enter into a "logical debate", he's just speaking his mind and pointing out that he's got no source for a commonly repeated claim.

Yet that apparently threatens you so much you have to whine impotently.

I never was intending to debate anything with you. I gave my opinion on why you were acting childish. I don't even know if you're a holocaust denying loony or if you really, really do want to make the total figures for the holocaust more accurate but fear you'll be put in jail for making such an honest historical enquiry.

Can you at least explain what you believe here? Or is it like a reflex for you to avoid posting about your own opinion because you're so used to people picking it apart? maybe because you're denying reality

Do people really hold grudges against another PERSON for their JOB? Can you not separate a person from their duty?

What do you think, /pss/? If a person does a wrong thing because that was his duty, is he a bad person in general?


Let's look at examples:
Lawyer defends an obviously guilty man
Cop sees kid smoking weed in the street and arrests him
Army man has orders to launch missile into house with "suspected terrorists" in it
Surgeon performs life-saving emergency surgery on child rapist after the raper tried raping a little girl and was almost beaten to death by girl's dad

(Assume that these people can't just simply QUIT their jobs and get hired elsewhere on a whim; this is 2009, full recession mode)

It's a crossroads between one's own notion of self-worth and their ideals/beliefs. From what I can tell, it's just another extension of our need to survive and the fear, adrenaline, drive, etc that may come with that.

One assigns duty toward some particular focus or goal (if one has been conceived), then that individual fragments and abstracts that duty to collect the materials needed to solidify the root goal of survival. That can be so abstract to include destructive or creative elements. I've known plenty of people in business and the work force who carry a cold outlook on other humans because they are committed to their own survival, or their family's survival, etc. because '[They] don't care, [they've] got bills to pay and mouths to feed.'

Duty to me is like a physical extension of one's personality and the life they think they ought to lead to best utilize themselves in their own situation (whether that be for one's self, others, religious devotion, lack of, and so on).

>>204632

I suppose that brings us to the sort of solipsistic idiosyncratic nature of everything. I always think in metaphor of a feedback loop that gets decorated with a new coat of paint every so often. Everything's basically all the 'same stuff,' but it's constantly being reconstructed due to all the varying vantage points. A constant repackaging and flourishing of the utterance of some past signal; much like the evolution of music (or any activity, really). As we see and digest information to regurgitate it in our own way, we are constantly modulating any signal we get our hands on (whether it is simply shared with one's self in the mind or outside in the physical realm) because we can not be identical to any other possible thing at any given time. It always comes out different but it is never-the-less still rooted in the same input signal that throws it into motion.

But I mean, that's just one possibility. I don't really know shit.
Sorry for the rambling! :)

We never want to face our problems and learn from them.
We would rather act like we were better, or like we didn't deserve it, or like we are hopeless; when in all seriousness were just so young that when something happened right in front of us and we couldn't do anything, we were too slow, too weak, too hopeless.
And so, when we became adults, something bigger, something that kids look up to, we image ourselves on these moments.
You can choose one way or another:
the way you think is easiest is the way you will feel worst with
the way you think is hardest is the way you will feel better with

Maybe resolving all conflicts and contradictions until there no longer are any (so there would be no outside force to destabilize any of the "agreements" already reached)? Is that the point?
But why did contradictions and conflicts exist in the first place? If something caused that to happen, then can it be caused again through some mechanism that is extrinsic to our understanding of physical causality? Unless it's literally always been this way.

The point behind learning from your problems is digesting them as an avoidable thing, and when not avoided, and manageable thing. That's not to say everything is avoidable but everything can be managed unless you are tied up and being held against your will. Once you begin to realize that problems are a good thing for human development you can begin to change yourself. The change you wish to see in the world needs to be reflected by the mass majority of the population but that means you need to be the change you wish to see the world become. if you or someone else makes a mistake then think about it. Think about why it happened. Think about how you could have handled it better, and remember to think back to this situation in the future if it happens again. Also realize that without your faults you cant enjoy your positives, without displeasure we cant feel pleasure. It's a perceptual thing to me; would you rather just accept you made an error and beat yourself up over it or forget it and act like its either never going to happen again or it will inevitably happen again creating a cycle of self destructive thoughts or actions, or would you rather take everything good and bad as a lesson of life and experience life in the full beauty it is. Do not distance yourself from your emotions, but think mechanical. You don't want to be a sociopath but you may want to take some tips from one.

1) Feminism at its core is simply the idea that women are people, not just defined by their 'womanhood,' whatever that might be conceived to be.

Yes there are a lot of 'feminists' who have all sorts of crazy ideas, but that doesn't mean we should ignore the core truth most of these people are trying to get everyone to acknowledge.

2) Pure capitalism isn't good for flesh and blood human beings. Pure capitalism is essentially a nihilistic philosophy, with no ultimate values except abstract numerical ones. Sure, individual pure capitalists are seeking worldly power just like the rest, but the economic system they seek power through only gives them abstract power. The fact that the whole real earthen world can actually be effectively organized and run by a fully abstract numerical system is astonishing, when you think about it, but also explains why everything humans do nowadays is so stupid and fucked up-- pretty much the complete opposite of how anyone would sketch out a functional and basically happy community of human beings.

There's nothing particularly wrong with capitalism balanced with something close to true democracy, by the way. Seems like a decent arrangement could be made.

3) There are a lot of problems with the human world, and there are endless specific things we need to change, fix, and work on getting better at. But the multiplier of all these problems is out of control population. The only peaceful way into the future is if most women in the world decide of their own accord to have at most one natural born child. We will also need to carefully consider how to reorganize society around a condensing population. Endless expansion always leads to collapse. Could be war, could be pandemic, whatever. Sounds boring to me.

4) You know next to nothing. You are a human being. You are a baby in this universe. You've just been born, you're about to die, and you know nothing for sure. Yes of course I know this applies to me too.

Strangely, we're not totally in the dark. Language does work, somehow. We can understand some things, a little.

Hey, I resemble that remark! I haven't seen this other thread. I just popped in on my lunch break the other day and saw this one at the top, without much time to browse further.

I'd be interested to read if you can link it, I don't see it on the first couple pages. I've already stated that I'm kind of riding the line with feminism, and it makes me uncomfortable when people hate on it; I won't even watch TheAmazingAtheist or Thunderf00t on youtube, they rubbed me the wrong way the first time.

I'm not totally against feminism, but I can understand why people are fatigued by it, given all the bad examples running around. It changes so much from generation to generation, and even many feminists now can't agree on the same goals, so is it really protected by its textbook definition if nobody acknowledges it? It seems impossible to convince those who are against the dreaded F-word to consider the good aspects of it, so I'm just done with putting that label out there before someone gets to talk to me. I bring up my ex because she started out as one of the cool ones, but got progressively more and more SJW while doing nothing with her life to back up her high-and-mighty claims. I put up with it and tried to see things her way, but after it was all over, I was able to relax a bit and step back for a look at the bigger picture.

The difference is the people arguing and sharing their opinions in this thread seem to be doing it with logic and reason. The other thread was full of monologues that just ignored criticism and didn't make any sense.

>the Universe is an order of things

No. 'Order' as a concept is entirely human in its origin. We apply order to the Universe in order to understand it. We think we see hierarchies and classifications, but those are merely mental crutches to help us survive in a chaotic but somewhat predictable world. Take cells for example, their 'orderly' machinery is in fact a carefully concerted chaos, and depend on the mostly random movement of individual proteins and molecules for anything to happen.

Scientifically, a completely ordered universe would be entirely uniform. In other words the exact same energy constant everywhere.


>This leads us down two avenues of thought: Either the universe gets created inside your mind, or you must believe that an omnipresent God (the required consciousness) generated the order of an external universe.

If the universe is actually 'orderly' it would be ordered with or without us. It require no consciousness at all. From my perspective you're anthropocentric in your view of this, consciousness has no magical ability to 'assign' or 'create' order to anything. It merely detect and predict patterns that are already there.

Correct. It's origins lie in the human mind, to be more specific. That's sort of been my point all along.

We create the order, and use it to construct the universe in our minds, to be more specific.

>We think we see hierarchies and classifications,

Without heirarchies and classifications, what is there? Noise? Chaos? How can you say there's a "you" or a "me" or a universe of any kind at all, if there's nothing but chaotic randomness?

How so? God mode: you can't use human terms. That would require an "us" to define it.

Ah. I got a bit confused as you seemed to claim it was both our creation and inherent in the universe.

>We create the order, and use it to construct the universe in our minds, to be more specific.

I'd rather say we create a representation of the objective universe. What we see is heavily modified for our consciousness to extract useful information. Most of the noise is filtered out(for example we only see a tiny part of the electromagnetic spectrum. If we saw it all we'd be effectively blinded by noise).

>Without heirarchies and classifications, what is there? Noise? Chaos? How can you say there's a "you" or a "me" or a universe of any kind at all, if there's nothing but chaotic randomness?

There are rules and patterns to chaos. They are simple, but give rise to extremely complex structures and systems within said chaos. Emergence in other words. Take for example an ant-hill. We could see it as one organism, but its complexity and structure arises from the simple actions and decisions of individual ants. There is no central agency in it, but the chaos is concerted by simple rules such as pheromone tracks.

Right, and so how is it ordered, do you think? By the Quark or by the Adam? By the black hole? Maybe it's just a bunch of Newtons? Nobody can say how the universe is ordered, but you're very sure that consciousness has nothing to do with it.

>There are rules and patterns to chaos.

All of these rules are concepts, and your mind changes the patterns that it sees in the noise according to the rules. "Our" universe looks vastly different than it did less than a thousand years ago. The universe in your mind looks vastly different now than it did since you were 3. Did the universe change, or did your mind?

Call me edgy if you like, but I've started to look into (and appreciate) LaVeyan or Modern Satanism.
Funnily enough I was only reading up on it as I was designing a mask for Halloween and wanted to add some symbols onto it.

First up, LaVeyan Satanism is an atheist belief system, so to call it a religion would be incorrect as Satanists don't believe in the supernatural. Baphomet (creepy goat headed dude) is nothing but a symbol of our carnal selves. Unlike most religions who abhor this, Satanists just accept it and move on. They believe we are nothing but animals, but not only that that because of our "philosophical developments" that we've developed an ego over other creatures on this earth, and such we are to be regarded as the most vicious and degenerate of all the creatures.

It's very much the anti-thesis to Christianity (and quite possibly Buddhism), but with a clear absence in the supernatural of any kind.
Where many religions deplore materialism, Satanism encourages it, but only if it betters yourself and those that you care about, otherwise it is a waste of the worldly resources. Following this train of thought Satanists are natural epicurists; drink, drugs, sex and all those that exist in this earth to make oneself happy, why not use it to its fullest? "Cursed are the gazers toward a richer life beyond the grave, for they shall perish amidst plenty"

Satanism is intrinsically equal. Feminism does not need to exist as true satanists see each others as animals. LBGT doesn't exist either, as Satanists see love in a purist form of "union" in which gender does not exist.

Satanists encourages philosophy and science. Satanic sins include stupidity, lack of perspective and herd conformity.

That all said and done, while a fascinating religion (seriously considering buying the satanic bible just to read more) it's also a rather harsh view on the world. Literally, quotes from the satanic bible: "Cursed are the poor in spirit for they shall be spat upon" "Cursed are the weak for they shall inherit the yoke". Also satanists believe in an eye for an eye, just vengeance is revered. They believe in total destruction of your fo…

OP here, wow alot of feedback, really appreciate most of it, others not really, but this is a chan so what do I expect.

I'll reiterate: I am an agnostic. I personally see all formed religions, especially those that believe in deities, as farcical but I am open to the social constructs that they convey.
For example, I would not believe in Jesus but I would respect the symbolism and meaning that was based around him.

Which is why Satanism stood out to me in that regard. It is the anti-thesis to Christianity, one might suspect that such a philosophy would be chaotic (some might argue it is) but it's rather whole and formed. I was expecting sacrifice and evil but instead I got some quite wholesome values, which surprised me. You need to understand that I come from a once very christian country (ireland) where christian values are still intrinsic in daily life.

Satanism is flawed, but I believe it is no more flawed than any other religion. A lot of you attempted in vain to point that out to me, even though I pointed it out in the OP. It is a cruel (some might argue valid!), edgy and unforgiving way of looking at life. But it's a perspective none the less, which is my key point. I've yet to find something that stands as an antithesis to a religion that is so formed as satanism.

>"When walking in open territory, bother no one. If someone bothers you, ask them to stop. If they do not stop, destroy them."
It touches on this later, where it says as long as no harm would come to you, obviously it would not be revenge.
Absolute destruction if able.

>it's also a rather harsh view on the world. Literally, quotes from the satanic bible: "Cursed are the poor in spirit for they shall be spat upon" "Cursed are the weak for they shall inherit the yoke".

This isn't a harsh stance. LaVey was stating observations in the Book of Satan chapter V. He noticed that the world always tends to work out this way, with people at some point getting their just deserts or "reaping what they sow." The poor in spirit will be spat upon, because that is literally what happens. The weak shall inherit the yoke, because they lack the ability to collect themselves and become responsible for their own advance. Satanists are neutral on these things (usually) and just accept them as how the world works.

>Also satanists believe in an eye for an eye, just vengeance is revered.
Yes we do but this also means different things to different people. We don't think you should run out and murder someone for embarrassing you at the office christmas party.

>They believe in total destruction of your foes with little to no mercy.
This is a metaphor. What some of the interviews with LaVey or Gillmore on youtube. They talk about what this actually means.

>I don't agree with those philosophies as I feel they're inherently self destructive.
You don't understand how we apply them then.

There are innate differences between the sexes and races (subspecies to be more exact). Belief towards the contrary is not based in reality.

I believe you're talking of epigenetics, and I agree; it's a much required field considering the global socio-economic climate.

>one is born "tabula rasa" (behavioural psychology)
>genes are present in the environment (archea/bacteria/eukaryota)
>genes define oneself (phenotypes)
>one is born of the environment (evolution)
>the environment affects oneself (epigenetics)
>one affects the environment around it (ecology)
>repeat step 5 - 6 ad infinitum

ftfy

There is no "tabula rasa" except when describing in the beavioural sense. It's a component of the "beaviour = learned" mantra

>hooking up on tinder

I did the test just out of curiosity and don't remember seeing that question.

But maybe they figure that because Tinder is all about looking at pictures of people and deciding whether you want to bang them or not that its indicative of the superficial attitudes someone with theoretical Dark Triad traits would do.

But then most dating and people are superficial like that anyway. So much of our perception of someone comes from appearances. Its a proven fact that people with more attractive faces are just assumed to have more attractive qualities in the eyes of a beholder.

That would have to be a first as far as quizzes go. I always thought my result of 'Snape' in the 'Which Harry Potter Character Are You?' quiz was really accurate due to my seemingly dark personality but that on the inside I'm secretly heroic and caring for the people I pretend to despise.

Two Systems by Isabella Blasslestock - Sun, 22 Nov 2015 16:46:35 EST ID:3HmCier0 No.204256 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I have a theory of two types of systems based on their structures.

On the left in the diagram is the "Authority" model in which a Central node facilitates and controls communication between subservient nodes (nodes can be individuals or organizations). You can think of this in terms of how the internet works with all of us sending information to a central server (the site) to be passed on to each other. The result is that the central node may intercept, view, alter, or block any information we attempt to send.

On the right is the "Community" model in which all nodes are in communication with each other on an equal (or trust-based) level. This allows for un-monitored interaction and free exchange, as well as allowing those in the network to do a "reality check" against multiple sources instead of just having to accept what the central node says. On the downside, this introduces the threat of "bad nodes", aka nodes that (purposefully or not) create Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt (FUD) among other nodes.

Bad nodes may exist in either system. In the Authority system they are only a threat when made the central node. In the community system they are a threat by simply existing in the system. When a good node becomes embroiled in connections with bad nodes it passes on the FUD and inadvertently becomes a bad node.

Anyway, that's what I got so far.

BTW, ignore the text on the diagram for the most part. It's a little overly-simplistic.

Ya know, its been prohpesized that THIS was the missing link for humanity. Einstein and Sagan, among many other brilliant minds who dedicated their lives, expanding what is called "perceptual trajectory" realized that when humans got together like this, we could really start doing some amazing stuff, including the end of war. And so, we are slowly reaching this point. Slowly, because the economic systems are both bolstering and hindering this growth on human connectivity. It gets deeper though, do you know why more people arent using video chat? Because it uses unholy amounts of data. And just so you know, there are big powers at play, that see these links forming, by the tens of thousands, and they are scared. they will no longer be that powerful center. They wont have it, it must be stopped. What can they do?

My question is on the subject of music. Why does music have such a great effect on us? Why do a selection of chords, instruments and melodys effect our emotions and moods so strongly? Also please post a piece of music that moves you personally.

I've been very interested for quite some time as to what music is?
I have varied musical tastes and play instruments, I know definitions of it.

But what are notes? The change from A432 to A440 is very minimal, 8hz.
How do we recognize A or D#? Some people are almost born with perfect pitch.
This suggests that it is an inherent quality of either reality, life or humanity.

WHAT THE FUCK AM I LISTENING TO?
