Philosophy





Alright guys, I know it has been a while. Blame it on the village and a short semester that is quite intense. However now I need help with my philosophy final. I know, ouch! That means, time to think. Some of us have been getting away for too long with out thinking and so this is it.

Anyway, I am looking for people's perceptions on the following philosophical questions. You can provide your own or second that of a philosopher you agree with, from Socrates to Neitzsche (And please don't hate on Marx!). I would also like to know in general whose philosophy you are most compatible with and why?


Here goes;


1. What is the nature of reality? can it be explained in material terms?

2.Are there Universal Ethical standards?

3.Is there a God?

4.What is the best way to run a just and peaceful society?


Looking forward to any responses.

Hey falone,

I know you just did Philosophy so you should have some idea on what this stuff is about.

1. When you go to the bank and can get money out of your account now that's reality in material terms.
2. The 10 Commandments are Universal Ethical Standards.
3. Who put the fishes in the sea? Who put humans on earth? I mean come on now.
4. Kick the unjust people out!
Grata did I pass? ;o)

Hey Norman,

LOL! Is this the same Norman I know?
As you can see I have been lazy on the study group. I should be posting something new very soon. To guide me through the Semester. I am taking French so I need tips on how to master the language.

I Love your response. Reality for you is going to the bank and having a healthy account?

The Universal ethical standards are agreeable to me.

"Who put the fishes in the sea? Who put humans on earth? I mean come on now".

Don't you know that the fishes in the sea out grew themselves and got to land and after many many many years they became monkeys then us?
Correction: Me then you?

"4. Kick the unjust people out!
Grata did I pass? ;o)"

You get an A not A+ coz you discredited the fishes.

Esse est percepi. But only on Tuesdays.

2.Are there Universal Ethical standards?

There are three: a) What's mine is mine. b) What's yours is mine. c) Whats ours is mine.

3.Is there a God?

Yes and no. Simultaneously.

4.What is the best way to run a just and peaceful society?

Eliminate those who disagree with you.
