Philosophy 115 Regional Message Board
The foundations of rational beliefs rest upon the shoulders of those deemed irrational by their contemporaries. At least to my observations. Besides the term rational itself can be quite subjective in the hands of those with what one might term as loose morals. Sort of a chicken-egg thingy.
I am not sure how rational our society would seem to our descendants ,or ancestors.
Ask the average Catholic about the Bible and you won't get an informed response, whereas Protestants appear to cleave to the Bible as the answer to everything. Because of my Catholic background I'm still surprised when people put forward arguments based solely on what it says in the Bible - as if that's going to convince anyone.
In Catholicism, Dogmatic Decrees of the Vatican Council are all you need to know, but who pays much attention these days? Maybe in Poland. Elsewhere in Europe the majority have abandoned the church and those who are left use their discretion, i.e. condoms - you bet!
With all the rules stacked against them it remains a mystery why women and gay men stay around to be the day-to-day backbone of the church.
The analogy between homosexuality and paedophilia is interesting, but the former allows for mutual consent, whereas the latter usually does not - exceptions being in movies by Pedro Almodóvar.
Say more about that, please, T-T.
Especially for those of you who are relatively new to P115, note that I am using the term "rational" in the philosophic sense of a life characterized by logic and thoughtfulness, not as a common cognate for "reasonable" or the opposite of "hysterical." I'm not aware that Socrates, Plato, Descartes, Pascal, or other titans of philosophy were "deemed irrational" by their peers. Even were that true, are such things decided by majority vote?
Welcome to P115, Askos!
Dammit. There seems to have been an interesting debate(s) going on and I have missed it. Keep going with it so I can chip in tomorrow when I have time :) ha.

Well, I certainly didn't mean to trigger the debate by embassy posting like this. Oh well. Personally I disagree with lefties, but I respect their need to use tools and things designed for left-handed people. And don't even get me started on those disgusting ambidextrous! ;)
RLAA (Right-Left-Ambi-Artificial) Liberation! :D
I wish those ambidextrous people would make up their minds and just choose one hand, even if it is their left.
I wish the people who are ambidextrous and polyamorous would... um... have large beds. :)
