I am very interested in philosophy. I strongly believe that questioning everything is not only necessary for understanding, but is also a great exercise for the mind. That being said, I not only enjoy the writings of philosophers, but anything that instigates thought.
Philosophy greatly sharpens your creative, intellectual, writing, and persuasive wits.

4.I was just pondering if we truly exist or not. To be more clear, if anything exists. Some people will say an apple exists because you can touch it. But what IS " touch" or " apple"? Are they not merely concepts to give some amount of understanding to something that doesn't really exist?

What exactly did you mean by wont shove things down your throat ?

Was it in terms of forcing your beliefs on sinning non believers or something more sexual ?

Religious beliefs are like your cock. Don't wave them around in public, and don't force them down people's throats. However, if a good natured, intellectual, polite, political conversation about religion came up, you wouldn't be considered an asshole for stating your beliefs and making a few good-hearted arguments.

Exactly. And i'm female.
I have no interest in doing that(shoving my beliefs down peoples throats), but if someone wants to talk about God with me, i'd be happy to.

It is rational to be irrational given the imperfect nature of man.

Well the rationale behind anything is subject to the beholder.

The wonderful nature of reality is that we can participate without fully understanding.

So, my question is: Does existing as we do entail the impossibility of true freedom from ignorance?

I think so. It would seem to me as if if one knew and experienced EVERYTHING that one would cease to be included in subjectivity and would transcend this existence.

Aren't we, or at least isn't life, wired to find everything rational? It seems that we deliberately do not excogitate anything for the sole purpose of survival. Nothing can survive if we spend our days pondering why we're here. By that standard is rationality just a standard concieved by the human mind, like anything else? Linguistics?

Rationally, can we understand rationale with any language or thought outside of our perception?

That's what I'm getting at, but the beautiful part is I had to look up what that meant.

I love linguistics.

Yes that was Latin. I believe that the Latin phrasing and pronunciation conveys the meaning of the quote much better then a translation could.

I enjoy thinking about life in general, especially issues pertaining to religion (is there a god, can there be morality without a god, etc). I look foreward to discussing philosophy with all of the other members of this crew!

4.I made it because I wanted to share intellectual ideas with people.

I guess thats it, enjoy!

Other then the many STD's and Degenerative Brain disorders caused by cannibalism, not much it would solve a lot of problems. If you're really curious about things like that read " A Modest Proposal" by Johnathon Swift. It is a satirical essay written in the 1700's to the British version of congress (can't thinks of actual name) pertaining to a way to make better use of poor Irish children.

Morality is arbitrary and cannibalism is still practiced in many parts of the world. Namely New Zealand.
