Re: Somatic Behavior Choice Hypothesis

You're right, I left the tics off the first "morally", which was an oversight, not an admission. But I explained earlier that I don't talk about 'morals' since religious folk have overloaded the...

Re: Somatic Behavior Choice Hypothesis

My quote was 'not ultimately responsible'. They as social members, comprising everything that was given them by their genes and environment, ARE responsible. But they are responsible as persons for...

Re: Intellect & emotions---Choice

This [yours Fred] is such a ridiculous statement that I hate to even acknowledge it. But, since Margaret is ignoring you, I must: we all understand that humans have intellect, the question that...

Re: Somatic Behavior Choice Hypothesis

You're right. I did not make the correlation between Summers' attackers and the left. My bad, I'm sorry.

I AM in the middle though. Economic R and social D, with the exception of gays. And I...

Re: Somatic Behavior Choice Hypothesis

Yikes. To say this and then go on to partisan observations is not exactly what I would do. You might have included more of the dems faults to make it more balanced and much less partisan.

I...

Re: Somatic Behavior Choice Hypothesis

Re: Somatic Behavior Choice Hypothesis

Yikes, you really didn't get my point. Well, as long as we talk it over before you waste $20 (!!!). ;)

BTW: My point is that those who agreed with the incorrect answers of the other 7 were...

Re: Somatic Behavior Choice Hypothesis

I would suggest that you would have invalidated the experiment by mentioning the possibility that others would get something so easy so wrong. In fact, you would be planting the expectation that...

Re: Somatic Behavior Choice Hypothesis

Yes, that's my point.
Just to offer some balance: people forget that Saddam flouted many UN resolutions, acted like he had WMD and probably thought he did. Enough of a reason to oust him regardless...

Re: Somatic Behavior Choice Hypothesis

I obviously disagree. If those with the better instincts do not get a handle on human behavior, those with the worse instincts certainly will (again!). Unless we accept that 'immorality' is possible...

Re: Somatic Behavior Choice Hypothesis

I'm sorry, but this gift-horse has crooked teeth ;): we can not be ultimately morally responsible if our will is not free, but controlled by our neurons and chemicals in the same way as is fear.

Re: Somatic Behavior Choice Hypothesis

I really liked your example of the university, it is a great analogy. It's too bad that you just copied it from Wikipedia without giving them credit. Of course, that does make you sound smarter...

Re: Somatic Behavior Choice Hypothesis

No one's arguing that we aren't conscious or do not have choices. It's whether there is anything outside our brains that affect those choices - that would be something free of our brains and a...
