>idolizing Charlemagne

One doesn't have to read the rest of your post to know exactly what kind of person you are and exactly how wrong you probably are. Even so, let's dive right in.

>[doing things that aren't aggressive is okay]

Yes. It is. If people aren't free to be as wonderful or terrible as they like, in what sense can they be considered free? Maximum freedom necessitates "do as thou wilt" but also "do no harm".

>racial equality under the law[, ]democracy

What law? What state, what governance? The advocacy is directed towards none.

>you're leftist[s]

Not even remotely. Leftists are the architects of thievery. We're more like the engineers of vaults. From your endorsement of the man who "shed the blood of four thousand Saxon men" alone I'd reckon you're some shade of brigand yourself. Either a Communist playing some gay long game (as they're wont to do) or, more likely, an authority-worshiping cuckold of a man who thinks all would be well if only great dear-leader father took the reigns of the world.

>>99186

>animals can't consent, violation of the NAP

Dumb, wrong, possibly fake and gay. The default position, the reasonable one I'd say, is that animals do not have rights. Ergo you cannot violate their rights. Ergo you can fuck them if you want. The other position would be that they do have rights and therefore must have agency. If that is the case they must also be able to consent. Once more legitimizing having sexual relations with animals, so long as it isn't rape. The only version of the world where it's universally wrong to have sex with xyz is one in which the universals are decided by some arbitrator (the so-called "taste police").

Foul? Likely. Wrong? No.

>gay is okay

We don't into state enforced homosexuality here, bruv. Also, physical removal. Also, I bet you had a poster of Milo Yiannopoulos until last year, didn't you?

>fucking animals is okay

Literally no ancap on this board has ever said that, some guys aside who were obviously falseflagging. Zoophilia is an abomination, people who engage in it ought to be punished.

>polygamy/polyamory is okay

Let me guess, you are still fine with fornication? I am not, but I don't want to punish it, unless it is adultery. In that case, it is a breach of contact, as well as against the natural law.

>freedom of speech/freedom to promote communism

Again, no. It is not that simple. If you merely play with the idea that maybe, communism isn't so bad, no problem. You are an idiot, and being an idiot isn't punishable. If you start organizing and agitating, things are different. In that case, an effective exercise of the right of self-defense may call for something as radical as a targetted killing. Far from in every case, but if someone had shot Abimael Guzman back when he was recruiting students into his guerilla, thousands of lifes might have been saved.

>freedom of religion

When did you last go to church, buddy?

>racial equality under the law

Literal anglo-tier bullshit, fam. Seriously, have you ever researched the history of scientific racialism? It was made up in the 19th century, by a guy named Gobineaux. Then it spread to Angloland, and from there, to certain over countries like Germany. Not unlike eugenics, really. There is nothing traditional about either, and in fact, men like Marx, Theodore Roosevelt, and Woodrow Wilson were racialists or eugenicists. And before you tell me about muh Founding Fathers, they probably thought that if you raised blacks in America, they would become white. That was a widespread belief at the time, that it was the climate that made you white or black.

I am not talking about scientific facts to do with race. There are clear differences between whites and certain races, no one here disputes that. Racialism as an ideology is yesterdays progressivism, on the other hand.

>fucking animals is okay

Disgusting? Yes. Bad idea? Generally. That being said, I don't really give that much of a shit - this kind of issue tends to sort itself out eventually.

>polygamy/polyamory is okay

Again, consenting people can do whatever with each other. Polygamy/amory is pretty stupid, but I think people should be free to make bad choices with their love lives.

>freedom of speech/freedom to promote communism

You take the bad with the good. Let them talk about communism, as long as I'm free to remind everyone there how fucking awful it is. The counter to "freedom to promote communism" isn't to clamp down on speech, it's to teach people how fucking idiotic and destructive communism is. By that point, anyone who STILL falls in with the commies was probably going to be a miserable shitcock to deal with in any event, and can be disposed of when they inevitably do something sufficiently communistic and stupid (but I repeat myself).

>freedom of religion

You saying this like it's a bad thing just cements your position as a shitbrained fucktard.

Actually, you can, as in any self defense situation, you are acting on probabilities. It's not because someone firing a gun in your direction is certain to harm you that you may resort to violence to stop him. If he's an extremely bad shot, you can still resort to self defense. Likewise, if a very bad driver is about to run you over, then you do not act in self defense, strictly speaking, if you shoot him before he can hit you. You may be in your right on it, but not your right of self defense.

It's intent to harm manifested in an action undertaken for the purpose of causing harm that grants you the right of self defense. When someone is shooting at you, you may shoot back. If he is only taking aim, you can still shoot. If he's buying the gun, with the full intent to shoot you in the next ten minutes, why should you not be allowed to steal his wallet before he can do so, so as to stop the threat? If he starts handing out his "Manifesto" which aims to incite your neighbors to lynch you, why shouldn't you be allowed to stop him with violence?

The first was never a thing anywhere in human history, and the second is a call to slavery.

>freedom of religion

Never worked out in human history. Religions where created to control large sizes of humans, they have to be enforced otherwise the lie of civility cannot be uphold. Atheism is the biggest religion, because the thousands of years of religious indoctrination made the ones who are not bound to specific idolatry, prime victims to fall for every false idol in the book (capitalism, money, status).

>racial equality under the law

Races self segregate in nature, because they can sense the danger coming from each other. It's instinctual. Human laws are just too profit oriented to let nature run it's course.

>democracy

Nonsense term to hide the political subversion by criminal organizations. Different groups can argue about topics all damn day, but a decision can only ever be made if there is somebody who takes full responsibility for it. Compromises have no place in politics.

Nigga, leave the christfagging to actual Christfags. If you think of marriage as a slave contract despite the tons of Scriptural endorsements for it, and the long tradition of the Church of endorsing it, then you're not a good Christian.

This proves what I said even more. If this is how you think of your religion, as a tool of social engineering, then I pity your utter lack of faith. So, do me a favor, stop using terms like "mortal sin" for now, until you've actually done your religious homework.

>marriage as a slave contract

You want to be together, have sex together, live together, create life together, raise children together, spend the rest of your of together…nothing is stopping you from doing any of this. A marriage contract does not exist in nature, couples stick together because of attraction, lust, procreation, protection, obligation. A marriage is a window to give the outside word control over your private affairs. It's been used as a status symbol, as a liability in law matters, and as a shackle to put emotional stress onto a natural partnership, because of added obligations. Why would anyone invite money, status, politics and laws into a relationship? Only humans can be this insane.

>religion, as a tool of social engineering

Religions are solely human creations to enslave mankind to the written laws in exchange for empty promises. The natural traits superstition, faith and morality were hijacked into a lie, all the religious scriptures are tales of morality based on natural law, and the principal of God describes nature itself.

That's a bummer for most, and a terrifying outset, but it is also a necessary evil. Let me tell you why…Good and evil do exist, and natural law dictates that they have to coexist. To control big human civilizations one has to force morality onto them, otherwise chaos erupts. The means to achieve this is violence, but that comes with too much collateral damage, so laws were created, which also needed violence to enforce. This is where religion was born out of the necessity to make mankind accept laws without rebelling. So the concept of a god was put forward to give them something superstitious to worship, they were thaught to behave by tales of morality, they were given symbols to put their faith into, and the cherry on top…lies about imaginary achievements that makes them content and docile, like promises of peace, freedom, prosperity, enlightenment, a place in heaven, or virgins in an afterlife paradise.

Now we are in the present and all of mankind has thousands of years of religious indoctrination inside their genetic make-up. That means we respond to symbolism, idol worshiping and the concepts of morality. Especially so if you're an atheist, because that means you would fall prey to worship literally anything that benefits you personally, like money. That is all based on lies, it's ultimately evil, but it is now deeply festering in our human nature. We can not ignore this to go a different way, we must incorporate this religious identity and twist it away from the written laws and back towards the laws of nature.

>I pity your utter lack of faith

Faith is a human misrepresentation of the natural instinct common sense, which is a navigational tool that allows anyone to judge a situation instinctively as right or wrong. The same common sense will trigger awareness towards an unknown situation, for example the first time a human heard thunder and was afraid. This leads to superstition aka believing in the unknown, which is naturally followed by the instinct to acquire knowledge. Fast forward and we have all the knowledge about thunder, so our common sense is now capable to be even more efficient to judge that particular situation.

>stop using terms like "mortal sin"

You just broke two commandments "vanity & idolatry", by glorifying a man made term to a religious institution, while scolding others for using it in a wrong manner. All the laws humans made are contradictions, misrepresentations or corruptions of natural laws.

As for sin…the origin comes from when mankind committed the original sin to not embrace the laws of nature, but instead exploited it for their own "alleged" benefits. This is the corruption you talk about, the punishment that is our existence, the consequences of our actions. Everything mankind created was corrupted by that ongoing sin. Nature predates us, it created us, we are part of it. If we attack it, we destroy ourselves. I also do not despise religion, but I know what it is (indoctrination to civilization control), and I also know that the side effects of that indoctrination are so severe that we all have in in us, which means there is no other way forward than excepting religion and steering it back to worshiping natural law.

Also, how old are you?

This reeks of romanticism, but I'll spare you the general rundown on why that's crap for now and focus on this:

>A marriage contract does not exist in nature, couples stick together because of attraction, lust, procreation, protection, obligation.

What's more likely is that in nature, when a woman leaves her man, he murders her. Monogamy was exercised throughout history, why do you think that is? Humans are monogamous beings. We do not enter spurious relationships, with no hope of them lasting long, perhaps an entire lifetime. In nature, as I said, "free love" wouldn't exist, because it is an unnatural institution for humans. Marriage carries a promise with it to stick together, that is why the institution exists. It doesn't even have to be legal, in that breaking this promise is legally sanctioned, but it at least affirms that promise, drawing a clear line between opportunistic flings and actual, long-lasting relationships aimed at creating a family. You can very plausibly doubt that our modern institution of marriage lives up to this ideal, but not that this ideal is the right one.

>Religions are solely human creations to enslave mankind to the written laws in exchange for empty promises. The natural traits superstition, faith and morality were hijacked into a lie, all the religious scriptures are tales of morality based on natural law, and the principal of God describes nature itself.

This view neither conforms to the historical evidence, nor to philosophical proofs we have for God. And my guess is you will not engage with either, only set up your own narrative and call it a day.

>Let me tell you why…Good and evil do exist, and natural law dictates that they have to coexist.

That is patently not true, not if you follow proper natural law philosophy, established by Plato and Aristotle, followed by the Patricians and then the Scholastics, and adopted by libertarians like Rothbard and Rand. According to all of them, the good has being of its own, whereas evil is a privation. Therefore, while good may exist all on its own, evil is largely parasitical of the good. They may be more or less explicit on this, but it's always, at the very least, implied.

This is not to say your conception is false. I assume it is, but that does not follow from my argument. What I intended to do was clarify that your conception of the natural law is actually a break with the long tradition of natural law in philosophy. You sound like you're embracing an ontological dualism of sorts, and while that is far from esoteric, it simply isn't where the philosophers of natural law came from.

>To control big human civilizations one has to force morality onto them, otherwise chaos erupts. The means to achieve this is violence, but that comes with too much collateral damage, so laws were created, which also needed violence to enforce. This is where religion was born out of the necessity to make mankind accept laws without rebelling.

Conveniently, as with most such anthropological laws, there is no hard evidence to either confirm or falsify this. I do not deny that religion has often served this purpose, but there are clearly other purposes, and the failure of your view is to disregard them all and focus solely on one of them. You don't consider that religion can just as well limit rulership (as Christianity in particular has done), that there are psychological motives behind adopting a religion (consolation, finding purpose, etc.), or - you know - that there may actually be a realm of Divinity, and that humans have a natural urge to get into contact with it. You claim that religion is a top-down invention, when it may just as well be bottom-up, or a middle class phenomenon. You give no argument for that. Same with all your other claims. It's a narrative and nothing more.

This passage presents a ton of new problems, too. For one, you blatantly extrapolate from Christianity into the past. Before Christianity, you did not have such a strong focus on soteriology and eschatology. Later, with its advent, every new religion, to be in any way appealing, had to come up with a view of salvation, the afterlife, and eternal justice. Sure, you always had the odd tale about an evildoer suffering for his deeds, or a good men being rewarded, but those were rather peripheral, and no attempt was made to make the promise of salvation in eternal. Instead, the focus was on charms, earthly success, and evading divine anger. In the Old Testament, you had some hints of eternal salvation, but not more than that. When God was angry with someone, like idolators or adulterers, the punishment got to them on earth. Especially the historical books make very frequent mention of that, and the view that bad luck is the evidence of prior bad deeds is explicitly criticized in the Book of Job, which shows that this view was very common.

With Christianity, eschatology and soteriology practically exploded. If your religion had no teaching on it, it was as good as dead. We know of hundreds of old gods, but most of them were about rather earthly things, from winemaking to pregnancy to fertility to warfare. They were charms, of the kind primitives in Africa have them. Compared to this, there is little to document the views of the afterlife. What we do have, both in Hinduism and in Germanic paganism, came well after Christianity, too. The further back you go, the more sparse do optimistic references to the afterlife become.

Nor was there much in the way of divine justice, or even morality tales. The gods are frequently portrayed as debaucherers, murderers, sleezy bastards, warfarers, drunkards, and so on. The old myths were a way to cope with the tragic reality we live in (if you do not believe in God), but they weren't happy pills. Do you think that people thought so much of tragedy, adultery and backstabbing because they were happy? The ancient tales are quite often fundamentally pessimistic, and there is not much hope in them. Oh, and they also completely failed in practice to pacify the populace. Life under a primitive religion was short and nasty. You were constantly haunted by evil spirits, witch doctors, angry neighbors putting curses on you, tribal warriors out to steal your soul, you may or may not have seen a neighbor get sacrificed and even participated in it… this is demonstrated by anthropologists who dealt with tribes, by prison wardens and foreign ministry servants dealing with African immigrants, by journalists who went to Africa, etc. The great consolation inherent in religion is, in truth, only inherent in Christianity and its derivates, a few isolated examples aside.

In all this, I don't wish to deny opportunism in religious myths. There is clearly opportunism involved. What I wanted to demonstrate is that your view does not conform to the evidence. You extrapolate from Chrsitianity, and you argue from the conclusion to the evidence.

Okay, we were religiously indoctrinated so bad it's now part of our DNA, over the course of such a long timespan that we can no longer really reconstruct the process, our very nature is ultimately evil, and despite being capable of rationality (as you wrote an entire post trying to convince me through rational arguments), we are doomed to live a lie.

This is Doolittle-tier of redefining and overdefining a term so hard that there is no way to engage with you without starting a debate that is ultimately semantic. Your definition of faith is "common sense but more stupid", pretty much. You do not engage with the etymology of the term, the history of its use, or even its use nowadays. You quite simply redefined it, with some pseudo-evolutionary hypothesis supposedly backing it, but ultimately just serving as a distraction. This kind of argumentation is incredibly boring, like all kinds of analytical philosophy, which is ultimately what you're doing here.

Yes, whatever you say. Can you just make a thread on your first principles or something, instead of annoying me with the conclusions of your autistic philosophy that you invented two years ago? And when I say autistic, I mean it. Your argumentation is extremely intransparent, you don't seem to know where I'm coming from, you seem to have gotten all of it from navelgazing. And yeah, evolutionary psychology is the worst form of navelgazing. It's game theory applied to hypothetical scenarios that may or may not have existed ten thousand years ago. It is not based on evidence at all, but neither is it based on a priori argumentation. Underlying it are always the ideas that evolution is both true and unguided, and that biological facts are all there is to the human psyche. The evolutionary psychologist does not so much deny as simply ignore all positions to the contrary, and that makes discoursing with them very, very boring.

>As for sin…the origin comes from when mankind committed the original sin to not embrace the laws of nature, but instead exploited it for their own "alleged" benefits.

The term is obviously Biblical, and yet you don't even look at any of the Scriptural evidence. You have appropriated the term for your own ideology, and you have done so badly.

I believe I have already established at length that your ideas are intellectually barren, and you cannot tell me that they give you much joy, either. So why not overthink them, look for a real religion, and become both a better philosopher and a better, happier person? You won't even have to give up all your intellectual progress. I used to be a hardcore atheist, but upon converting, far from finding all my former beliefs to be entirely worthless, I was able to put them to more fruitful use instead.

>Humans are monogamous beings.

The reason why life exists is to create new life, as seen plenty if you put any compatible species together. This process can only be interrupted by outside circumstances like in the case of the Panda bears, who reject procreation if the ecosystem isn't healthy enough. Humans chose monogamy because it's the the most obvious constellation of procreation (1+1=2). This is a constellation that is the easiest to defend against dangers, which is the natural principle of survival. Self preservation. More partners means more dangers, so it's only logical to stick with one. Marriage has nothing to do with any of this, and only put a corrupted layer of control over a natural law.

>long-lasting relationships aimed at creating a family.

You only need lust to start a family, everything else is for self preservation of blood and race. Why would anyone need a sanction for something any life form can do naturally?

>my guess is you will not engage with either

On the contrary I want to be contradicted by factual evidence, because I don't want to be wrong.

Every way humans describe God…be it the creator of all life, the entity that connects everything on earth, the power that can hear our thoughts and feel our pains, the god that grows his power through our worshiping, the god that makes us part of himself when we die, the one that tests and challenges us, the one that shows us all the wonders on this earth, the one who dictates the morality of good and bad, the one who puts his own existence into the hands of his creation, the one true God…all this describes unmistakably NATURE itself. Humans not only based their religions entirely around what nature teaches us, but they decided to claim the achievements of nature for themselves and hide it behind a superstitious entity. Why? Because they think they can can get away with defiling and exploiting nature for themselves.

Whenever I engage in discord with strong religious "believer", I can easily dissect anything they bring up as proves with referring to actual explanations under the laws of nature. Fast forward and every dialog with Muslims, Christians, Jews, Buddhists or Atheists, will end with them running out of material and bringing up the line "but you have to believe". Every time, and this is exactly what motivated me to find my own answers, because humanity is a broken construct full of never ending lies, and I merely looked for a constant to navigate this insanity. And it was such a simple process to see nature as the origin of all life, because it delivers nonstop evidence of it's doings. You can literally trace everything humans did right back to the fundamental natural origins. It's child's play to deconstruct civilizations, religions, science etc. if you just look behind all the paywalls humans put up to hide their crimes. So please bring on historical and philosophical proves for god, and I promise you nature will be the answer to all of these.

>proper natural law philosophy, established by Plato and Aristotle

It's a human interpretation of natural law. Today you would call it the "buy my books" fallacy. Let me prove good and evil to you. The boundaries of nature are two opposites…birth and death, yin and yang, 1 and 0, to be or not to be. All life exists in between those two, and the "good" path is the struggle to survive, while the "bad" path is the easy way towards death. This also proves that life itself is a test because temptation exists and lures everyone towards death. A great example is the sun, which offers nurturing vitality to all life, while also tempting you to forget the looming dangers of getting killed by it's rays. That's how nature rolls…a never ending test of survival.

>religion is a top-down invention, when it may just as well be bottom-up, or a middle class phenomenon.

If you follow religions back to it's origins you can see that it was more and more based on nature, which means humanity chose to let religions stray them away from nature. You also have to understand that the more you go back, the more primitive the knowledge was. So why would a primitive culture stray away from nature? What would make more sense? That humans committed the original sin of exploiting and destroying nature for their own benefits, and started to reject any blame that common sense told them about the consequences of their actions, which later gave them the self justification to exploit others by creating a form of mass control that puts human laws over natural laws OR that they just started believing in something bigger that conveniently can't be questioned and must be believe unconditionally (a superstition)?

>>100591

Let me refute all your statements by explaining the afterlife to you with as much evidence as you want…I already told you about how life and death are the barriers to our existence, but there is something I withheld from you. The circle of life. It was actually hidden in the word coexistence, but that's another story. Anyway, when you die you dissolve into the fragments of your ecosystem (atoms, particles of life or whatever modern science will call it). What these parts are doing is becoming part of all life around it, literally food. Hence the circle of life is established, death became part of new life, and we dug right into another fundamental natural law life lesson…balance, which humans so spectacularly fail at. Everything needs to work together in unison to establish a healthy infrastructure. Now if you have the human race not adhere to this law, you create imbalance, humanity becomes a parasite to it's ecosystem, and natural law dictates that the host will fight the parasite to death.

>we were religiously indoctrinated so bad it's now part of our DNA

I wouldn't say DNA because it's a zeitgeist term that has no meaning in nature, but the idea is based on subconsciousness, which can be found in nature.

>over the course of such a long timespan that we can no longer really reconstruct the process

No, reconstructing the truth, while deconstructing human lies is what I do. The whole redpilling process, as it's called today, is based on that. I can endlessly take out all the lies surrounding us today (like MSM), but the problem is and always was your inability to stop lying to yourself when it comes to accepting more and more fundamentals truths. That's a really fucked up side effect of indoctrination; natural self preservation can be tricked into accepting lies as truth (again temptation). A natural example would be the fata morgana, it's a lie that temps you to die, but your consciousness will hold onto the hope of survival by following it. You have to understand that not every human can handle all truths, it can literally drive them into suicide to to get their worldview broken, which is why the self preservation instinct is so hard at work, and why humans are so easily fooled into following the way of least resistance.

>our very nature is ultimately evil

No, we made a mistake and are now suffering the consequences for it. We can change at any time, but that doesn't mean the consequences of our actions will not destroy this ecosystem and end our existence. Death is waiting for all of us, but we can struggle against it reaching for us. We do this by living.

>This is not just pessimistic

Truth hurts. I don't make the rules.

>As for your lack of evidence

Ask me for anything you want to know more of.

>analytical philosophy

Have another natural example of common sense then…fire. Put a baby or small dog near a fire a see what happens. They will instinctively be curious, then be warned by the combinations of visuals (red) and sound (crackle), and finally physically warned by the perception of heat. Both creatures have no former knowledge about any of these things, but common sense will tell them to be aware of dangers. After that it becomes the struggle of choosing to not fall for the temptation of it, for which they will be instantly punished. Then in comes human faith, a lie that tells them that they only have to believe what other humans are telling them. What could possibly go wrong? But there is a natural component one could attribute to faith, that is the "believing in yourself" model. You know, the story about the mother who pulled up a burning car to rescue her children by believing in herself. But that's just another example of overcoming self preservation to secure the existence of your bloodline. This is the "good" way of struggling for life which was rewarded with success.

First, I don't believe in evolution theory, because it's nonsense. I believe in cause and effect, actions and consequences, and I firmly believe that when there is an answer, that one does not accept human believes as an end of inquiry. Nature explains everything we do, because we created it out of it, and if we go against the narrative it shows. You only have to accept that natural laws are the foundation of our ecosystem and then use them to prove if humans are lying or not. One cannot create out of nothing. Everything humans did can be taken apart this way, and you will be left with a logical explanation based on natural evidence. Stop pretending that not all humans are liars, who lie to others and themselves. Because I can easily disprove that as well.

>the term is obviously Biblical

Of course, and I couldn't communicate with anyone if I didn't use the most logical terms available to me. Sin is just a perfect explanation for a wrongdoing, and original sin fits perfectly with just that…the original wrongdoing of humanity. Also what do I care about scriptural evidence, when the laws of religion were created out of the laws of nature? How else do I describe something that came before humanity, without using human terms?

>your ideas are intellectually barren

I stated nothing but logical facts based on natural evidence and your only offering is to tell me that I have to believe in something humans made up. I won't. I believe in truth and humans are not offering it at all. But if you like lies, then humans can endlessly entertain you. And don't get me wrong. I don't intend to discredit your religion, because I understand that it's needed for humans to justify their existence. I just want you to question the human narratives, so that we may get a chance to actually move forward instead of running headlong into death.

Actually, the most "obvious constellation for procreation" (weird wording) would be several women for one man, if we look purely at the numbers. In fact, this is also what has existed historically almost as often as pure monogamy. That you cannot defend all your women, or all their offspring, shouldn't matter if it's all about procreating as much as possible.

>Marriage has nothing to do with any of this, and only put a corrupted layer of control over a natural law.

See, it doesn't, if we consider that humans are naturally monogamous because they have certain emotional needs that compel them to stay in a steady relationship, not because it is a good reproductive strategy. If they do have these needs, then it would be against the natural law to reduce the promise to help those needs to a mere whim.

>You only need lust to start a family, everything else is for self preservation of blood and race.

It's the precise opposite To propagate your race, you only need to have as many offspring as possible. To start a family, you need to stick around, not leave as soon as your wife starts puking and hysterically crying. You need love for your wife and for your children, and you need commitment to them, because pure emotional sentiment cannot be the basis of any stable social relation whatsoever.

Because humans are not bacteria or rabbits, maybe? Of course the natural law has different provisions for us.

Alright, "nature" - let's define it as the aggregate of the creatures around us, and leave it open whether we will also count the environment - is the following:

>the creator of all life

Semantics aside, we can say that we are all products of nature.

>the entity that connects everything on earth

We can also accept this about nature.

>the power that can hear our thoughts and feel our pains

This is where it obviously becomes wrong. Not a single entity in nature can hear our thoughts, or feel our pain. Even other human beings do not experience our own experiences directly, they don't share our thoughts directly, and they have no direct access to our feelings. To say that nature itself somehow does any of these things is a baseless claim.

>the god that grows his power through our worshiping

Not only does nature gain nothing from our worship, it's also not an entity that necessarily rewards cooperation and reverance. On the contrary, we can frequently destroy whole patches of forest, kill predators, domesticate wild animals, and only gain from it. Besides, none of the religions that are still relevant teaches that God is in any way dependant on our worship and prayers. The Aztecs believed they had to keep their gods alive through sacrifices, other pagans protected their idols as if the gods were capable of dying, but the Abrahamic religions in particular explicitly deny that we are capable of diminishing or increasing the power of God. Frankly, if you fail so hard trying to characterize religion, it makes me suspect you just have never understood it.

>the god that makes us part of himself when we die

That is true enough to say concerning religion, but not nature. When we die, we die, unless there is an afterlife. Decomposing and being incorporated by some other creature into its body is the opposite of living on. Your experiences, feelings, thoughts, emotions, those are all lost in the process. That is, unless you superimpose some kind of divinity on nature, but you have denied doing so, and claimed that you are only looking at things as they are.

>the one that tests and challenges us

>the one that shows us all the wonders on this earth

Fair enough.

>the one who dictates the morality of good and bad

Also okay, if I interpret this charitably.

>the one who puts his own existence into the hands of his creation

Here, you are losing me again. This is only true of Christ, and that's it (I'll simplify the theology here, for the sake of argument). Such an idea would be foreign to most other religions, and that is if you give what you said a veeery charitable interpretation. A Muslim would not subscribe to what you said, neither would a Jew, nor one of the followers of the ancient religions, as far as we can tell. So, once more, you extrapolate from Christianity to all other religions, showing me you have not actually looked at the evidence.

Have to cut this short before the post gets too long: Not only are several of your parallels severely overdrawn, and not only have you shown yourself to be utterly ignorant of religion, you have also shown that your reverance of nature is not at all realistic. You worship nature, attributing several religious aspects to it which, if we observe it coldly and without an eye for romanticism, it doesn't have, and then - without any argument - declared this worship of nature to be the proper origin of the worship of God. Again, absolutely no argument given for that.

And now, a brief word on this:

>On the contrary I want to be contradicted by factual evidence, because I don't want to be wrong.

Evidently, you don't care very much for facts. You superimpose your worldview on them before you draw any conclusions from them. Your methodology is whack.

>Whenever I engage in discord with strong religious "believer", I can easily dissect anything they bring up as proves with referring to actual explanations under the laws of nature.

Make a convincing argument before you gloat, will you?

>Fast forward and every dialog with Muslims, Christians, Jews, Buddhists or Atheists, will end with them running out of material and bringing up the line "but you have to believe".

I have never in my life said this, not in a debate like this. Thinking about it, I also cannot remember any Christian bringing it up during an apologetic debate. What I do remember is hearing it constantly as an atheist. I suspect it is the same with you, frankly. I have thrown more than enough evidence your way, many concrete examples of religions not fitting into your worldview, and you have ignored most of it.

>Every time, and this is exactly what motivated me to find my own answers, because humanity is a broken construct full of never ending lies, and I merely looked for a constant to navigate this insanity. And it was such a simple process to see nature as the origin of all life, because it delivers nonstop evidence of it's doings. You can literally trace everything humans did right back to the fundamental natural origins. It's child's play to deconstruct civilizations, religions, science etc. if you just look behind all the paywalls humans put up to hide their crimes.

Misanthropy going hand in hand with romanticism, imagine my surprise. Tell me, why do you see humans as broken, and not nature? Or why see any one of these two as broken? Why not see humans as acting perfectly in accordance with nature if they destroy it, and ignore its supposed lessons?

>So please bring on historical and philosophical proves for god, and I promise you nature will be the answer to all of these.

Do I have unlimited time? If you must ask me for this, then you haven't done your homework. Look up the Five Ways, Anselms ontological proof, the argument from finetuning and its derivates. They are basic knowledge in religious philosophy. Like with the historical evidence, I am not too keen to write an entire post detailing them if I have two more of your posts to deal with, in which you have apparently ignored entire passages of mine, like my entire critique of overrelying on anthropological evidence:

>Conveniently, as with most such anthropological laws, there is no hard evidence to either confirm or falsify this. I do not deny that religion has often served this purpose, but there are clearly other purposes, and the failure of your view is to disregard them all and focus solely on one of them. You don't consider that religion can just as well limit rulership (as Christianity in particular has done), that there are psychological motives behind adopting a religion (consolation, finding purpose, etc.), or - you know - that there may actually be a realm of Divinity, and that humans have a natural urge to get into contact with it. You claim that religion is a top-down invention, when it may just as well be bottom-up, or a middle class phenomenon. You give no argument for that. Same with all your other claims. It's a narrative and nothing more.

>Let me prove good and evil to you. The boundaries of nature are two opposites…birth and death, yin and yang, 1 and 0, to be or not to be. All life exists in between those two, and the "good" path is the struggle to survive, while the "bad" path is the easy way towards death. This also proves that life itself is a test because temptation exists and lures everyone towards death. A great example is the sun, which offers nurturing vitality to all life, while also tempting you to forget the looming dangers of getting killed by it's rays. That's how nature rolls…a never ending test of survival.

>The boundaries of nature are two opposites…birth and death, yin and yang, 1 and 0, to be or not to be.

Well, awesome. Death is the absence of life, 0 is literally, well, zero, and yin and yang are symbols for dualism, and bringing them up to prove dualism is like pointing to the existence of textbooks on Keynesianism to prove that Keynes was right. So, yin and yang aside, of the two genuine dualities you mentioned, both pairs consist of one word for being, and one for the absence of being. Death is the absence of life, zero is the absence of quantity. Both examples, then, point to ontological monism being true, not ontological dualism.

>If you follow religions back to it's origins you can see that it was more and more based on nature

See, this is where it would have come in handy to read what I said about anthropology above. We do not have proper evidence on the ancient religions. Yes, many of the gods we know of have aspects of nature in them. Many are also anthropomorph, however, and many are also embodying concepts that have, on the face of it, nothing to do with the physical world (unless you superimpose your religious views on the world, that is - which I maintain is exactly what you did). So, with the evidence we have, it is actually hard to say if the religions started from the worship of nature (with anthropomorhism imposed on them later), the worship of humans (with aspects of nature given to them to embody men's dominion over nature), or the worship of more alien or abstract concepts. What we have are pictures, temples, and so on. What we do not have are any theological treatises from the ancient times, or recordings of their worship, or discussions of the content of the worship. We simply don't know if a worship of nature existed before the religions did, or if it was one religion of many, or if it competed with the worship of famous kings who were made into gods, and so on.

>You also have to understand that the more you go back, the more primitive the knowledge was. So why would a primitive culture stray away from nature?

Well, maybe because they had no appreciation for it? You know, just like many primitive cultures nowadays have no appreciation for it? Nature is out to kill you, it has you hunted down, inflicted with diseases, and possibly worse. For civilized men, it is easy to see only the nice aspects of it all, the flowers, the warm rays of the sun, and to ignore the diseases and the hunting, the periods of starvation, all that. There are primitive tribes hunting fish by throwing dynamite into seas, and records of them hunting animals to extinction and destroying entire forests. The Aborigines used to set wildfires. When you live in a concrete block, you obviously - and rightly - learn to appreciate nature, but savage men are not so inspired. Not the least because they are kinda assholes.

>What would make more sense? That humans committed the original sin of exploiting and destroying nature for their own benefits

As I said, even supposedly natural peoples exploit the environment. Perhaps nature is all about animals eating plants and other animals?

>and started to reject any blame that common sense told them about the consequences of their actions, which later gave them the self justification to exploit others by creating a form of mass control that puts human laws over natural laws OR that they just started believing in something bigger that conveniently can't be questioned and must be believe unconditionally (a superstition)?

I go with Option 3: Man has the desire to get into contact with the divine, that is why he invents false religions if he has no recourse to the real deal. Makes the most sense, if you believe in God for independent reasons.

>that they just started believing in something bigger that conveniently can't be questioned and must be believe unconditionally (a superstition)

Also, nice strawman, there are plenty of believers who don't think you have to cast aside the use of your reason.

>the consequences of our actions will not destroy this ecosystem

>Underlying it are always the ideas that evolution is both true and unguided, and that biological facts are all there is to the human psyche. The evolutionary psychologist does not so much deny as simply ignore all positions to the contrary, and that makes discoursing with them very, very boring.

Would you care to elaborate on this? Specifically, your beef with evolution? It has its flaws, yes, but I've yet to see a plausible alternative explanation for species differentiation. Your criticism of evo-psych is very relatable, however, and I say that as someone who first got interested in economics because of the game theory chapters in the back half of the selfish gene–you can find some interesting tidbits here and there, but there are no greater implications that stem from these.

>Look up the Five Ways, Anselms ontological proof, the argument from finetuning and its derivates

A question about Aquinas' five proofs: I've never doubted that these are logically sound arguments, but it seems to me that they are only proof of a first cause generally, and not the Christian God specifically. I'm very sympathetic towards religion and especially the Catholic and Orthodox churches. While I outwardly identify as part of the latter, I can't say that I've ever been blessed with faith–while I'm certainly cognizant of the many positive effects faith has on a man's psyche, and the innumerable benefits the church has on communities, I've never been able to believe in a god.

That's what an ecosystem does by itself. If humans weren't so busy being parasites, we would be creators who would use our surroundings to create for the benefit of the entire system, which in reaction benefits us.

That's a freedom you have to first earn, by creating and sustaining life, by building civilization and acquire enough knowledge and protection to create individuals that are capable of contemplating.

>build a society

Again you need life for that, and since it's a circle, you need to make more of it.

Magnets, anon. Two negatives will always repel each other. Billions of men can teach you the mistakes about having multiple women competing with one man. It ain't pretty.

>To start a family, you need to stick around

Nope, you only need to stick it in to start a family. When the kid arrives you maintain the family unit, as a means to protect your bloodline.

>You need love

Love is a social construct. It's a word that has infinite meanings, which makes it meaningless. There is no "power" that connects partners spiritually in nature. All the reasons why they stick together are purely circumstantial, and humans merely made the spiritual connection up to feel better for themselves, while ignoring the natural answers already in place. Millions of humans spend their lives together simply for money…it's all just self preservation hiding under a human lie.

>Because humans are not bacteria or rabbits, maybe?

All life works together in the same ecosystem. It's about sharing purpose. A flesh eating bacteria acts as parasitical as humans destroying their environment, and if you think rabbits are stupid and horny all the time, you should visit Africa (or wait until they dump it in your backyard). Once again humanity made the error of lying to themselves about their superiority over all species, without realizing that they commit suicide by destroying them. A good example are all the animals who can't control their eating habits, until they run out of food and die out. Nature using greed to tempt towards death.

Why? Everything has a purpose. Our environment sustains us and even a stone offers life sustaining protection (shade or shelter) for smaller creatures.

>Not a single entity in nature can hear our thoughts, or feel our pain. Even other human beings do not experience our own experiences directly, they don't share our thoughts directly, and they have no direct access to our feelings.

All actions have consequences and all live is connected in the ecosystem. Take our consciousness for example. How can nature tempt us to lie to ourselves, if nature couldn't understand our thoughts? And it is temptation because it can easily lead to fatal real life actions, when you made up lies in your head. Same goes with feeling our pain, because the damage you have to endure is the result of how nature tests your survival ability. Maybe the term "entity" is the problem here, because humans use it to describe god, but also add human attributes to it. You can call it supreme being, or maker or just "it just is". Nevertheless natures existence can be proven everywhere, while the human concept of god stays a superstition, which characteristics describe nature 100% What a convenient coincidence.

>nature gains nothing from our worship

When we worship nature by keeping the balance intact and creating for the benefit of all life, then our ecosystem will grow, spread and sustain more life. Our natural ecosystem literally put it's existence into the hands of it's creation, because if we destroy our ecosystem, we both will die. That is why life needs to be a constant struggle, because it's a test of loyalty.

>we can frequently destroy whole patches of forest, kill predators, domesticate wild animals, and only gain from it.

The difference between short term gains and long term consequences. Of course you can kill all the wildlife for food, but then you starve to dead. The whole reason why our bloodlines and races are getting destroyed is because we rebel against nature. So now we have the unfriendly jews using race-mixing, incest and degeneracy to destroy other races, while not realizing that they are also destroying themselves in the process. The problem why humans cannot understand this logic is because they are seldom capable of understanding history in a flow of time, instead of just seeing dates, names and events. There are long term consequences for everything we do, and all "bad" actions have a very distinct goal nature loves to show us all the time…death.

>none of the religions teaches that God is in any way dependent on our worship

Because that would put the leaders in demand to prove that god received the worship and is getting stronger. Kinda hard to sell this lie long-term. Just believing in something is so much easier to sell. A great lie needs to be so big that nobody would believe it could be a lie, while also as simple as possible to make it hard to disprove from many different angles. This is why the holocaust narrative has to be oppressed by international laws. Too many holes create cascading problems.

>Your experiences, feelings, thoughts, emotions, those are all lost in the process.

Your bloodline transfers anything worth keeping; it's all about characteristics, but also deeper level instincts and traumatic alterations.

Let me tell you about another highly important natural law that was corrupted by humans to control others. Individuality. Nearly every human being has the false believe that the world revolves around him. That he is important, that having a consciousnesses is giving him the right to act like his own god. That is a lie that's been promoted by jews since forever and it's why they're succeeding with their crimes. Individuality can only exist if the collective is healthy and strong enough to create the freedom needed to become an individual. Individuals are the fruits of labor, created by a hardworking, stable community, and they are the means to reach out and uplift the entire collective with their unique actions. This collective is based on blood, race, culture and upholding morality. When you have an honest look at the history of mankind you see that only a handful of true individuals ever existed. The rest is white noise in the history books. The jews learned about this early on and used it to promote the false hope of becoming individuals to the gentiles. It's always about standing out, chasing the dream, being your own boss, yada yada yada. All this has nothing to do with divinity. It's all logic.

I didn't even bring up other religions, you did. Anyway, Muslims believe in submission to Mohammad, Islam and Allah, the almighty. So let's talk islam. Mohammad took like over 20 years to narrate his political tool of power acquisition orally, and it took another 20 years to put it all in writing. That's over 40 years of human meddling into a religion based on what he knew about Christianity and Judaism. then came countless different interpretations of this material until the 3rd caliph Uthman destroyed all of them and made his version the only existing translation of Mohammad's Islam. At this point it's complete and utter nonsense, that has nothing to do with it's highly questionable origins. Fast forward and we got jews getting their hands on it as well and now we have not a religion but a self destructive weapon, controlled by inhumane laws. As for jews…they are the parasite that acts parasitical to us being a parasite to nature. Call it divine retribution. All these are just symptoms of the corruption that cascades throughout humanity, the lingering side effects of going against nature.

>utterly ignorant of religion

I know enough to understand that specifics don't matter, only the fundamentals. Just look at the Torah. It's drivel so big that they have interpretations of it that are 18 volumes long. Meanwhile the average jew has an IQ of like 90, and often calls himself religious. Christians had no problem doing pilgrimages in Africa to an audience of 60 IQ retards, and here you are telling me I have to look deeper into scripture to understand religion. There is a reason they call it opium for the masses.

That's a lazy way of making me do all the work but fuck it. Let's talk commandments. "Thou shalt not steal" That's a lie inside the construct of civility. We all steal all the time. We rob nature of it's resources, we use tax loopholes, we use the works of others for our own benefits (like memes), we steal a look down a cute girls decollete, we steal each others land, we steal freedom away from animals and humans and so on. I can disprove each and every one of the commandments this way, and your only defense will be interpretations, which I will call lying to yourself about why you didn't listen to what common sense is telling you. You know it's wrong, but you make up an excuse anyway. This sentiment is what religions are exploiting. They give you the justification of committing the sins, for the small price of being obedient to their laws. Superstition, faith and morality is what religions are based upon, and the human laws within are the corruption that gives the creators the power to control you. Imagine what this simple knowledge can give you over believers who don't know it? It's brilliantly evil.

>I have thrown more than enough evidence your way, many concrete examples of religions not fitting into your worldview, and you have ignored most of it.

No, you use big words to tell me little to nothing. I use little words to tell you fundamental truths. I have prove in nature for anyone to understand, you are hiding inconsistencies behind human constructs and buzzwords. How does saying "philosophical teachings of so and so" proves anything? It's just another form of "you have to believe". And i tell you again…I don't have to believe anything if I can come up with a logical truth, and neither should you.

>Tell me, why do you see humans as broken, and not nature?

Because nature cannot commit a sin when it's testing us, and it would also be laughable to divert the consequences of our own actions onto our creator. Do you blame god?

>why see any one of these two as broken?

We were born into a fully functioning ecosystem and we are destroying it. Me realizing this proves that we have the ability to not not do this, which also proves we are at fault.

>Why not see humans as acting perfectly in accordance with nature if they destroy it, and ignore its supposed lessons?

Common sense. A parasite that chooses to be a parasite is by definition suicidal. Common sense tells me that's a non-no, if I want to live.

>humans have a natural urge to get into contact with it

The way of least resistance aka believing the lie instead of facing the ugly truth of dying. There is a reason humans are so perverted when it comes to handling their dead. Making the corpses look pretty, making an industry around fancy caskets, using dying flowers as decorations, and building hedonistic temples for the worshiping has nothing to do with respecting the dead, or acknowledging the truth of nature…it's just another despicable lie to feel better about themselves, while trying to hide the fact that death is waiting for all of us.

The same can be said about them and their ancestors, and when we follow that logic back we will arrive at very dumb people living in a very rudimentary civilization. On religious scale we would be somewhere around animism by some tribesmen. That's about 100k years ago if you believe science. It's all irrelevant to me. What I need is the understanding that they didn't have the knowledge to understand the nature around them. So a good ol fashioned blizzard storm is like entertainment by gods. So naturally everyone pisses his non existing pants and hides under a rock. Then some fucker realizes that the odds of getting killed by it are pretty bad, and so he had something other didn't have…knowledge. So what do? Sharing or being a cunt and exploiting it? That's btw humanity in a nutshell in 2019 as well. You don't need any historical evidence to understand simple concepts as these, you can just look at what nature offers as evidence. In this case the existence of haves and have nots aka hierarchy. Almost all animals have these hierarchies, which are mostly based on power over others. Like the the leader of the wolf pack who uses physical dominance to rule or the ant queen who dominates by breeding power. See, all natural, no superstitions.

>no appreciation for it

How can you not appreciated what sustains your life? No, humans fully understand the importance of nature, but they chose to ignore the consequences to gain short term profits out of it. It's why hedonism rules mankind, and why we are in this sad stage of existence.

>Nature is out to kill you

So you think is somehow intelligent to ignore something that unmistakably will claim you at the end, while doing everything it can to get you before it? Only humans can be this stupid. That's an insane level of self deception. But guess what? It's just a lie on the same scope as accepting racism, while walking into a group of blacks wielding machetes to prove that you're not a racist.

>civilized men

It's a lie. You're not civil. You only pretend to be until nature catches up with you, which it naturally always does. You ignore your natural instincts because of human lies. Why? Because humans promised you that this is the way survive. Then you die anyway or make up excuses as to why you keep pretending to be civil, while the world around you falls into violent madness. I mean the Vatican is raping children. How civil is that?

And we are still paying for their sins, while still following their ways. Or no wait…we're actually even more destructive to nature then they were.

>Perhaps nature is all about animals eating plants and other animals?

Perhaps the ability to have a consciousness and using common sense puts us into the position of maintaining the balance of it? I mean we know we die if we don't do it? What's the holdup? Do I miss something?

Do they look behind god tho? And if yes, why doesn't nature come up more often? I mean sharing all these similarities is kinda coincidental, isn't it? Kind of a dick move to claim the creator of all life title without evidence.

>Don't tell me you believe in anthropogenic climate change, but not DNA?

Climates change, humanities doings are not the main motivator. It's just another test in an endless line of survival situations. I can't say anthing abut DNA tho, because modern science is ruled by money and oppression of thought, so I see everything coming out of that direction as a flat out lie until proven otherwise. But using the laws of nature again I know that bloodlines equal health and that they also can be corrupted, which makes me think the idea of provable genetic make-up is a logical assumption. I'm not gonna give em my blood tho. Ever. Fuck 23 and me and the jewish police state behind it.

>Would you care to elaborate on this? Specifically, your beef with evolution?

Oh, I actually don't have that much of a problem with the theory of evolution. I have some objections, but those are mostly on details. For example, epigenetics have been ignored for too long. We already know that Lamarck was not completely wrong, but scientists, it seems, are slow to catch on to that. What I don't like very much is just evolutionary psychology.

>A question about Aquinas' five proofs: I've never doubted that these are logically sound arguments, but it seems to me that they are only proof of a first cause generally, and not the Christian God specifically.

You are correct about that, they don't eliminate among the monotheistic religions. Going by the Five Ways alone, you cannot determine if Allah, God, or any other "First Mover" is the right one.

From an academic standpoint, the next step, after the Five Ways, would be to eliminate among the alternatives through historical analysis. I would say that the Old and New Testament are the only historically accurate religious books, with the others - like the Quran - being derivative. When you read the New Testament as a historical source, you have to conclude that it does, in fact, describe the events that happened in it, notably the miracles that Christ worked. If He did that, then He must have been the Son of God, as He claimed to be. We have no one comparable to Him in the entire historical record, no one of His might, and no one who lived such an untarnished life at the same time. The only way to deny this conclusion from the historical evidence is by declaring it to be impossible a priori, and this is where the Five Ways come in very handy.

What's more important for the spiritual life, however, are our personal experiences. If you have not made them yet, then I hope from the bottom of my heart that you do. They are not very useful for most apologetic discourses, but for myself, and many other believers, it is hard to overestimate their importance. At the top of my hat, I can think of no less than five events in my own life for which I have a strong feeling that God was directly interfering. Dreams coming at just the right time to give me a wakeup call, crippling back pain ceasing for the first time in two weeks after I applied holy oil and prayed on it… it's very easy to chalk this all up to selection bias, but such it is with almost all personal experience.

Then there are the documented miralces in the past, and in our time. My patron saint, St. Charbel, is credited with perhaps a dozen confirmed miraculous healings. There are many more that aren't documented well enough to be accepted by the Church as definitely genuine. I personally know people who swear to have seen Him. Of course, that could be chalked up to schizophrenia or epilepsy or something if you wanted to, but then we eventually reach the point where I'm suffering from selection bias, the people I am very close to are all undiagnosed schizophrenics, and every single historian from before the 16 century was mentally ill, yet showed no symptoms of any illness other than documenting the occasional miracle. And then the whole case against Christianity starts to resemble the ramblings of some conspiracy nut who believes the mailman is out to get him, and everyone but him is insane. Not convincing.

I have chosen to ignore most of your posts, because I already wasted two hours on them today, but by Allah, this is too much for me to ignore:

>Yet again the "you just have to believe" excuse.

This bullshit right here. Anon, can you read?! What you quoted was this:

>if you believe in God

What I actually said was this:

>Makes the most sense, if you believe in God for independent reasons.

In other words, I implied very strongly that you believe in God FOR REASONS. As in, you don't believe without evidence. First evidence, then belief. I have no explanation how you could read the above sentence as "you must believe in God and then everything makes sense", or - even worse - as "believe without evidence". No explanation, Anon. I am at a loss of words here.

It's exactly as I said, you are trying to hear what you want to hear. My bet is, in no other discussion you had did people tell you that you must believe, and then everything makes sense. They probably told you that belief in God is the best way to make sense of the world, or - the converse, in a way - that what they say makes sense if you accept that God exists, from which it doesn't follow that there are no reasons to believe in God.

I did exactly the latter. You told me there are two ways to explain the ancient religions, I gave you a third hypothesis, meaning that I reject the two you came up with. I explicitly told you that for my hypothesis to be plausible, you have to first believe in God, but FOR INDEPENDENT REASONS. Again: My hypothesis is plausible ONLY if you have first established, one way or another, that God exists.

No, because God is by definition the source of all that is good, and only of the good. You, on the other hand, have, to my knowledge, explicitly said that nature is both good and bad. At the very least, you have heavily implied that the bad is just as much a part of nature as the good.

3. Only what is in existence can confer existence

4. The chain of contingent beings conferring existence on each other cannot go on endlessly, but must terminate somewhere, as otherwise, we have no explanation why things exist instead of not existing

5. A being with necessary existence must have conferred existence to the contingently existing beings

6. This necessary being, everyone understands to be God

Yeah, funeral rites are disgusting, except, I suppose, when it's elephants burying their dead, then it's suddenly proof that nature is godly. Anon, do you hear yourself talk? You need to think less, and go out more, to talk to actual human beings. You're highly misanthropic.

Not for me. I'm perfectly capable to judge any statement on it's own merits without having any associated believe system. I also clearly proved that the concept of god exists, but that humans misinterpreted it. Nature created humans, humans made up religions, humans claim god created nature. Meanwhile nature is creating life all around us, while humans still hold on, to a concept that can't be proven and strangely aligns with all the other human lies. Anyway, answer me this…what would you as a religious believer lose if you replace god with nature? Also who would be more offended? The follower or the controllers behind religions?

>none of the religions teaches that God is in any way dependent on our worship

See that is incorrect, because they don't say that gods depends on worshipers, but the entire principle of religion is build on having followers keeping it alive. A god is forgotten without his worshipers.

>Because that would put the leaders in demand to prove

A law is a lie when it can't be upheld naturally. Everyone steals. All commitments are corruptions of natural laws, that are designed to hold you hostage in the loop of being a sinner and repenting your sins. The perfect, docile slave class.

>"natural law" is full of lies, as we humans break it all the time.

You can't break a natural law, it will always be there to punish the ones not following it. It's an unshakable truth that connects your existence with the ecosystem you live in.

>This isn't some forbidden knowledge.

Yet our entire global education, media, and political systems are based on controlling people with lies, and the masses buy into it wholesale. Or do you brush this one off as a theory too?

>you have heavily implied that the bad is just as much a part of nature as the good.

Absolutely. One cannot exist without the other. Life and death are a circle, 0 and 1 create together, positivity and negativity are natural opposites, up cannot exist without down, silence can only exist in world of noise etc. If you make the error of assuming that God stands for good only, then it means that you also equally believe in an anti-god (Satan). Now your religion has two equal gods, that is nonsense. Meanwhile nature creates equally for every life on earth, and never holds back in showing us the beauty of good or the horrors of bad. All in harmony, all logical, all based on evidence everyone can see. Where am I wrong, anon?

How about the necessity to exist inside an ecosystem? As far as I know god doesn't threaten to kill you, so the priority ranking about necessity goes right to nature. And everyone understands the treat of dying.

>Begs the question.

>elephants burying their dead

They put a naked corpse into the ground where it rots naturally away. that is literally cleaning up after themselves in accordance to the laws of nature, while also keeping the balance of not interfering with their ecosystem. They literally give back to the earth what they don't need anymore. It's as good as it gets.

>You're highly misanthropic.

Life is never absent only your perception of it (your consciousness). Reread what I wrote about the lie of individuality. You are not an individual, the history books will not remember you, your death will mean as much as the death of a fish in the natural flow of time. The only thing that matters is what you did for your collective, that's your bloodline and your race. Both of which are fucked all across the human species, because of our ongoing sin against nature.

You can say there is nothing inside a glass and it's a lie, because there is air inside the glass or you could say there is nothing inside the glass of water, which only describes the absence of water. Nothing doesn't exists in nature, because you cannot create out of nothing. And before you ask…the big bang is utter nonsense.

>Show me a zero in nature, then.

Now you are contradicting your own statement when you ask for proof that nothing can't be nothing. I give you proof anyway…before you were born your parents carried the genetic material that would create you. That is you being the 0 that isn't 1 (born) yet.

>This has nothing to do with what I said.

But it describes a word you used.

That is the difference between learning by useless facts, names, and dates like the jews are forcing into the school curriculum, and learning by understand history in the flow of time. Once you understand that everything is connected by nature, you realize you can simply travel through history by the knowledge how live works, how societies are constructed, how behavior plays out etc. I know how a chicken is born, I don't need the to know it's name, the birthplace, the date of birth, or the political climate surrounding it.

>Anyway, answer me this…what would you as a religious believer lose if you replace god with nature?

Nature isn't God. I have established that several posts ago. You gave me a catalogue of things that God and nature have in common, I pointed out exactly where and why you went wrong. You have not really engaged with that.

>BUT I stick to it because you made a tactical error

>tactical error

Perhaps one of your first errors is to even think of online debates this way, as a battle to be fought and won. I don't do it that way, not very often.

>I should not have brought worshiping into it. That was a mistake.

Alright, acknowledged that there was no contradiction in your belief then, but how was it a "tactical error" of me to point your contradiction out? You really ought to be more humble, not act like you have won some major battle because your vicious enemy pointed out you worded a sentence badly, when you actually meant the right thing.

>I have nothing against higher learning, but the topics I discuss here are fundamentals.

They really aren't, you're just describing your own theories here.

>A law is a lie when it can't be upheld naturally. Everyone steals.

And everyone ruins the environment for his own gain, and considering we live past sixty these days, I'd say we get away with it just fine. Sounds like the natural law cannot be upheld naturally.

>Everyone steals.

Also, no, I actually don't steal. I don't even take leftover coupons that don't belong to me. I used to steal in the past, but not anymore. Look, not everyone's fully corrupted. There are people who don't steal, who don't masturbate, etc. Everyone is bound to sin sometimes, but no single, specific sin is unavoidable. What you're criticizing the Church for is acknowledging that people aren't perfect, and giving people a way out of sin. Not a good thing to criticize, doesn't quite have the punch of "The Church turns you into sinners so you go to confession!". No, we are already sinners, and confession is an option we otherwise wouldn't have.

And furthermore:

>All commitments are corruptions of natural laws, that are designed to hold you hostage in the loop of being a sinner and repenting your sins.

Doing penance for your sins is not a universal religious thing. In fact, it is something we know mostly from Christians. Muslims don't have confession, neither do many protestants. You will be hardpressed to find something like penance in the Greek or Germanic myths, in Hinduism or Shintoism. You can shoehorn some religious rites into the category of "confessional booth", but at that point, you're making your whole theory surrounding religions controlling the population by making them out to be sinners worthless, because even atheists apologize to each other and have a guilty conscience if they do wrong.

See, you cannot even deal with established terms! I suppose my argument was pretty bad,

<There are things that exist contingently

>Chance is simply prove that the perfect balance can never be established, and that eternal struggle always stays the main motivator for life to move forward.

It isn't about chance. Its about things that can either exist, or not exist, as opposed to things that exist by necessity. Chance or probability has no place in this discussion. Something can exist with a 100% chance, and still be contingent. It can exist with a chance of 0%, and be contingent. Chance has nothing - nothing! - to do with this. You sound like you don't know what contingent even means, and that brings me, once more, to you being a major sufferer of the Dunning-Kruger-Effect. You cannot even understand the language used by the Scholastics, how would you criticize their theories?!

<For contingently existing things to exist, something must confer existence on them

>That's nature testing life.

It isn't. What you said has no relation whatsoever to what I said. I brought in metaphysical categories, you bring up "that's nature testing you dude". This isn't even a bad response, it's no response at all.

>Irrelevant statement because nothing doesn't exists. Nothing is always something.

Which is a highly controversial premise, and one you haven't even attempted to prove.

<we have no explanation why things exist

You misunderstood that, too.

>We exist to create, we were given the tools to do so, the material to do it, a set of rules to follow, and a environment that tests us endlessly. How is this hard to understand?

I could ask you the same thing. I was bringing in complicated categories, but they are not any more complicated than they have to be. You are ignorant by choice, it's as simple as that. In fact, you didn't even quote me in full:

<The chain of contingent beings conferring existence on each other cannot go on endlessly, but must terminate somewhere, as otherwise, we have no explanation why things exist instead of not existing

In other words, to say "X exists because Y created it, Y exists because Z created it…" does not cut it as a response, unless, somewhere down the line, you end up with some creator who existed necessarily, and was not in need of being created. Otherwise, you end up with an infinite regress.

>Just no, fuck you. Nobody speaks like that.

Kek, that's really how I speak when I explain the proofs of God. I did not even look up the terminology first. There are plenty of people who would have understood my sentence perfectly, no doubt experts, but that should just prove my point that you are no expert.

<This necessary being, everyone understands to be God

>How about the necessity to exist inside an ecosystem?

Using the same word in two different contexts, nice.

>first way

>prime mover bollocks

Nothing in the Universe's ballet of interacting forces would suggest that it had to be set in motion.

A sufficiently large cloud of gas floating immobile in space, for example, will coalesce into a solar system spontaneously.

The universe wasn't set into motion; it existed in a state of high potential energy and is forever falling towards lower potential.

>second way

>causality bollocks

Causality is a feature present in most of our universe. It does not hold in some circumstances (singularities).

At most one can say the causal regions of the Universe must have at some point emerged from a non-causal fabric.

To say that this caused or preceded the universe is a misunderstanding of what non-causality is.

To attribute the existence of the universe to a single cause is unfounded. Saying that cause is God is an asspull of collossal proportions.

Natural bodies move inexorably towards a state of lower potential energy because that is what causality _means_.

This argument is just a series of assertions with an irrelevant metaphor about archery thrown in for good measure.

also i think it's similar to how gluons can turn into quarks when they are stretched ie color confinement

and the holo principle is essentially pointing out that entangled particles must be communicating hyperdimensional so everything is linked somehow at a higher dimensional level

>first way

You are thinking of the First Way as describing a chronology of how the universe came to be, when you don't have to look at time at all for it to work. The cloud of gas you describe only had potential existence, and would have to be actualized by something to exist. What actualized it must exist in actuality, but for this to be the case, it must, in turn, be actualized by something, and so on. You will probably see the parallels to the argument from contingent and necessary being now. Both arguments talk about the same thing, just by invoking different (but related) categories.

>Causality is a feature present in most of our universe. It does not hold in some circumstances (singularities).

The only singularities I am familiar with are those in the middle of black holes, and those actually do have a cause.

>At most one can say the causal regions of the Universe must have at some point emerged from a non-causal fabric.

This just supports the Second Way, if anything. If the universe emerge from a "non-causal fabric", then it was caused by an uncaused cause.

>To say that this caused or preceded the universe is a misunderstanding of what non-causality is.

Sure you're not looking at this in terms of chronological causality again, instead of hierarchical causality?

>To attribute the existence of the universe to a single cause is unfounded.

It isn't, Aquinas' went on to show that the uncaused cause has all the attributes of God, among which is unity. There can be only one uncaused cause, not several.

>Saying that cause is God is an asspull of collossal proportions.

Actually, no, not if you think the argument a bit further. Think of of this as the second stage of the argument. You show that the universe has a first mover/prime cause/etc., then you look what attributes it must have (timelessness, immutability, and so on), and looking at those, you can only conclude that it must in fact be God.

>third way

I would say that being is as straightforward a concept as it gets, I really don't understand why you would get hung up on this.

>Nothing in the Universe's ballet of interacting forces would suggest that it had to be set in motion.

Everything about those forces suggests that. First, if interpreting your statement in the most literal way, analyzing those forces and the motions they produce suggests that they all originated from a single point. The fact that the night sky isn't a uniform blinding white implies the stars haven't been there forever, but had a distinct beginning. The anthropic principle further suggests the universe had a distinct beginning, a certain number of years ago. Even if we ignore the all of the a priori arguments—the fact that infinite regression of causality is philosophically unsound—empirical evidence alone suggests that a first cause must exist. I will agree that it's presumptuous to declare that this first cause can only be some kind of God. The core of the argument, however, is plenty sound. The other guy covered the conceptual justifications well enough, so I won't repeat them here.

Regarding singularities—black holes themselves have a cause, and causality still exists even within the event horizon, albeit on an asymptotically high delay. Only at the unreachable center does causality stop, and once again, the singularity itself has a cause. The only singularity in which the laws of time completely break down is the the one which encompassed the entire universe, which is to say the Big Bang. And wouldn't you know it, the Big Bang is the first cause, the thing which is not explained by causality but is the initiator of it.

<At most one can say the causal regions of the Universe must have at some point emerged from a non-causal fabric.

>This just supports the Second Way, if anything. If the universe emerge from a "non-causal fabric", then it was caused by an uncaused cause.

It goes much deeper than that. Just take a gander at the Leonard Susskind videos >>100668 posted, or read the wikipedia page on m-theory or some of the weirder quantum mechanical effects like the spontaneous creation and destruction of fundamental particles in vacuum, or entanglement, or how the weak and strong nuclear, electromagnetic and gravitational forces may merge at high enough temperatures. Singularities are downright straightforward compared to some of the stuff that's out there.

The causal universe didn't pop out of the cosmic asshole of a prime mover like a clock that's winding itself down; it isn't a separate entity from the non-causal. In all likelihood it existst as the 3-D surface of a bizarre reality humans cannot even begin to imagine, an emergent property of a Christ-knows-what with too many dimensions and no concern for a human understanding of logic. Imagine existing as a speck floating on the surface of a pool, or a shadow in Plato's cave.

>I would say that being is as straightforward a concept as it gets, I really don't understand why you would get hung up on this.

>>100671

>Even if we ignore the all of the a priori arguments—the fact that infinite regression of causality is philosophically unsound—empirical evidence alone suggests that a first cause must exist.

The isue here is that we are operating under the assumption that causality is a hard rule in the universe and that therefore in order to break it we need to invoke a first cause that set it in motion. It is more likely, as I said above, that causality is only applicable in a limited number of situations and does not represent the fundamental nature out of which the universe emerges. The universe wasn't created, it emerges.

>The way I see it, the First Way is a failed attempt to equate motion and causality.

That's being pedantic more than it is addressing the argument. When Aquinas (or Plato, for that matter) says "motion", he means what you or I would mean by causality. Besides, I don't how distinguishing between motion and causality would invoke any holes in the argument.

>The isue here is that we are operating under the assumption that causality is a hard rule in the universe

Why wouldn't it be a hard rule? Causality is the most basic precept in not just formal logic, but the very way in which we intuitively understand the world. If it isn't a hard rule, we may as well throw up our hands in despair and stop trying to understand anything, because neither we nor any machine that we create is capable of operating outside of causality.

>The universe wasn't created, it emerges

That's still causality, though. The universe still has a first cause from which it emerged.

not against homosexuality, it's just none of my business. i'm asexual myself, though that unfortunately meaning me being part of the LGBT agenda, i find the in-your-face, im-so-gay-and-proud individuals pretty obnoxious.

>fucking animals

/cracks knuckles

i'm not a practitioner or advocate of beastiality. it is also none of my business, nor the governments'. though somehow killing animals without consent is overlooked while having sexual intercourse is prohibited.

i think that, IF:

- the animal is willing and showing signs of being ready

- not being injured in the process,

there is no harm done by allowing both sides to satisfy their urges.

it is also natural and has been going on for thousands of years prior.

zoophilia should not be considered a full-blown "crime", rather a victimless crime.

citing Lexxi Stray: "We spend millions of dollars trying to stop people from bending over for their dog or taking a puff of weed while men beating their wives or people drinking themselves into comas hardly get a second glance." and that we should "stop wasting more tax money trying to stop people from engaging in actions that don't harm anyone else."

>Wanting to fuck animals is just not good from a hygienic point of view

fair point, though some zoophile owners keep their pets in a really good overall and hygienic shape and show them lots of love that some animals even in non-sexual ownerships would never recieve with the majority of pet-owning people.

(also looking at people who think that drowning unwanted sucklings/abandoning or even worse, throwing in the trash for example dogs/pups they can't afford to own or train is okay)

keep in mind there's still people who enjoy scat and other disgusting stuff, though.

What part of those statements says "killed"? It clearly says physically removed, which can be done kindly in a diplomatic fashion before the use of force is necessary. For example, if you have property such as a house, and you don't want me in your house, you would ask me to leave. If I don't leave, you have the right to use force because it is your property. Similarly, if a small group owns a bunch of property and agrees to not allow certain undesirables onto their property, they have the right to do so. Violence is not necessary for the removal of undesirables unless they refuse to cooperate with the property owners.

Firstly, blacks are not the majority in the US, so even if ancap had to benefit the majority it wouldn't matter. The only reason there isn't revolution right now is because the majority is uneducated on the topic. But ancap in reality does benefit the majority, so that's not an issue. The only people it doesn't benefit are those leeches who can't provide for themselves, but with no taxation and the lower cost of goods and services that will come from free market forces there will be more charity.

A forest has the right not to be burned down. A river has the right not to be polluted with chemicals, etc.

Of course you can be a child and say "It's my private property so I can destroy historical monuments or pollute rivers if I want, because I own the land and everything in it so I have the right to destroy it all if I want". You can try and make that argument. But no one will take you seriously IRL. Bottom line: animals don't need agency to enjoy rights. That's a non-sequitor.

Absolutely wrong. Children and the infirm don't have any rights. They are considered property either of an institution or of their closest kin. It isn't said as such because that would be "dehumanizing" but it is de facto true. Furthermore your insistence that property has rights is just baffling. A forest does not have the right "not to be burned down". Imagine if it was so, would those rights be violated by brushfires started by dry storms? Would the violation of those rights be meaningful? Where are you getting any of this from? Your definition of "rights" are clearly so broad as to be meaningless. Not that "rights" aren't a spook anyhow.

No, children and the infirm absolutely do have rights, and cannot be agressed against. The guardianship contract for such people may be traded, but the people themselves see not property and cannot be traded.

No one has any right you neckbeards. The goverment you so much hate and its mindless white minions are what give you rights. Remove that and nothing keeps people from going back to the natural "might makes right" mindset even if they work together and talk.

No goverment = no major cohesion = collapse = no police/laws = you liberal faggots gonna get murdered like you deserve.

Once all subhumans (like you) get killed people will calm down, self domesticate and tame themselfs in goverment and the cycle repeats.

Rights are necessary constructs which let us play together in a way in which the greatest benefit is achieved for the greatest number of actors, and where no one actor can reliably improve their position by violating them.

They emerge out of repeated interaction, like an iterated prisoner's dilemma. It doesn't matter whether rights really exist or not (whatever that means); they're natural, and we can clearly identify a number of them.

Children and the incapable have rights because they have the potential to be actors, or were actors in the past. It is in the interest of other actors to protect their rights because they may find themselves in that position.

It's ridiculous to say animals or objects have rights because they're not playing the game. They're not actors and never will be.

>>102331

Ancap isn't "noone enforces your rights", it's "rights are enforced in a distributed manner without a monopoly on violence".

You are clearly mistaking rights with agency and treating the latter as a precondition to enjoy rights. You can dispose of property at will, save a few exceptions like fly dumping etc., but you can't dispose of children or the infirm in the middle of the street. You have to leave them at the care of someone. That's a right that they have, among all the others.

>Furthermore your insistence that property has rights is just baffling.

You are a poster-child for the Dunning-Kruger effect.

In places like New Zealand, Ecuador and Colorado rivers have rights of personhood. There have been cases of "rivers" suing companies for polluting them, for instance.

https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/rivers-get-human-rights-they-can-sue-to-protect-themselves/

Just because you're not familiarized with the concept of natural reserves, it doesn't mean you have to act like a retard.

"WATCHU TALKIN BOUT??! I NEVAH HEARD OF ANY OF DAT!!"

>A forest does not have the right "not to be burned down". Imagine if it was so, would those rights be violated by brushfires started by dry storms?

I'm going to assume you are arguing in good faith and that that retarded question is borne out of ignorance. Intent matters. And you clearly know this. If you fall down the stairs due to an earthquake or because you tripped on your shoelaces that's not a violation of your rights. But if someone pushes you down the stairs, that's a violation of your rights.

Intent matters.

>Would the violation of those rights be meaningful?

They are meaningful. If you pollute a river or burn down a forest, you're going to prison.

>Where are you getting any of this from?

LOL. Being this boastful of one's unaware ignorance…

>Your definition of "rights" are clearly so broad as to be meaningless. Not that "rights" aren't a spook anyhow.

Your argument makes a bit more sense. Less edgy, more pragmatic. Of course everybody knows rights are "spooks" like the other retard said. Your explanation of how they came to be is very effective. However, I have to say that "being an actor" is not a precondition to enjoy rights. You mentioned the potential to be an actor in children or having been an actor, in the case of the dying, for instance. You are saying that only humans can and should be able to enjoy rights. I think humanity as a whole is moving away from that notion and expanding it even beyond sentient beings:

https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2018/apr/01/its-only-natural-the-push-to-give-rivers-mountains-and-forests-legal-rights

Animals have rights too: You can't abandon dogs and cats, it's against the law. Most people are not okay with eating dogs and cats. A growing number of people think someone who tortures / fucks animals should go to prison, etc.

You disagree with these developments, I assume?

Your conception of justice is drenched in authoritarianism. There is no such thing as a crime without a victim. When you say "a river sued someone" what you really mean to say is the government arbitrarily decided they had an arbitrary right over a plot of land they had neither homesteaded nor traded for. It's the government that is the actor here, not the river.

> If you pollute a river or burn down a forest, you're going to prison.

<if the government enforces the law, it must be good!

What are you? Are you a libertarian? You sound like a democratic socialist whinger.

Do you have any actual arguments beyond banal waffling?

Because so far you've argued that mistreating animals is wrong because of

<muh society(that we live in)'s feelings

<muh statist laws

>You disagree with these developments, I assume?

I think its a cause du jour for bored teenage girls and anti-humanist eco-crusaders, and you have only made me more certain of that opinion.

>animals can't consent

Oh? I think you need to not make such false generalizations. What is important is that, in any given case, to examine whether all involved parties consented. If the animal that you fucked consented to you fucking that animal, then anyone else forcing you to stop would be the aggressor.

There is, of course, the other question of proof. If someone violates you, and claims that they were justified because they were protecting the animal which you fucked (or tried to fuck, as the case may be), which they claim did not consent to you fucking them, and you claim that they were not justified in violating you, because the animal did consent, how is the question of who is reponsible for what restitution settled? I'm inclined to go for 'innocent until proven guilty', which would mean that the person violated you would have to prove that you were violating the animal, but then, what if the proof of guilt is too great? Of course, being a careful person, whatever I do, be it fucking an animal or otherwise, I ensure that I have proof that all effected parties consented, but that's me being a careful person.

(Not that I fuck animals or anything. It's all hypothetical here.)

>racial equality

SO. (Ahem.) What is important isn't racial equality per se, but that all discrimination is legitimate. There may be cases where discrimination based on race is legitimate. Of course, >>99186 a government that promotes racial equality is the antithesis of libertarianism, but it's not because that government promotes racial equality, but because it's a government.

[Age of consent]

>Are 14 year olds that different from 15 year olds? Are 13 year olds that different from 14 year olds? Where does it stop?

The point is that you don't look at the arbitrarily chosen property of 'how long has this person existed' to determine whether they are capable of consent, and you don't even look look at whether they are capable oc consent, but whether they did consent (!!), because that's what we care about here. Sure, if they have no ability to consent, then they didn't consent, but that doesn't mean that the question is about whether they can consent. Get your head on straight next time you wake up.
