hi . ok
why one ought not to hurt animals for kicks?
So do you disagree with chain reaction of kindness? :)
why one ought not to slap a baby for kicks
well im asking why one ought to create a chain reaction of kindness
why is the world better off with kindness than with cruelty ?
why one ought not to be mean and cruel?
It is not nice. It is inhumane. Hitting others. I think if the world had kindness it would be a better place. And I believe in causing a chain reaction. Even if you really don't want to. You have to be the better person and be "good".
why one ought not to be inhumane?
Ok...what makes it false?
i didnt say its false
Not you, Fermat. Lol's
What do you think about my ways, Fermat? :)
well im curious why one ought not to hurt animals or babies
this is the problem of ethics, by the way. justifying ethics is very difficult
why one ought not to commit suicide?
Well babies are not really fully developed. And they don't really know any better. They have to learn. Animals well they are like babies in a way. They don't know any better.
You keep asking questions. Could you give me time to reply? :) Lol's
ok can i ask next question? why one not to commit suicide
Lol's it's ok. it's just hard to answer and post while you add another question. :) Ok, for that well... I think you are wasting your life. You could help to construct/ make the world a better place or at least help one more person. You commit suicide if you're heart is not strong enough to continue. Or if the situation calls for your life over another I think you have a big heart. But I wonder if there was anything that could have been done to prevent ones death. I depend on the situation and the type of person you are I think. :)
why one ought not waste your life
just coz life is too beautiful to be wasted
why one not ought to appreciate beauty and not waste it
Because life is precious not only to the individual. But to those who think that the person is precious/priceless as well.
why should one ought to save what is precious
Because life is a gift. It is valuable. as thousands of loved ones are lost day by day, you still survive and are granted another memorable present..a day in this world. Make it useful. Its not something to waste
why one ought to waste a gift , a valuable gift
i mean, why one ought not to waste a gift
Let me ask you. Do you throw away any gift that you get as apresent? lets say its a birthday?
It's like meeting a person who in your opinion is "good". They are precious to you like family or close friends. Maybe even a place. To me my people are also precious to me. They have lost a lot and I want to help them get back what was stolen and help.
i dont, but why one ought not to throw it away?
You can only understand the meaning of life once you lose it.
And for a place, Hawai'i is my treasure. My family, friends, and even places are precious to me.
but youre dead , so you cant understand it once youre dead
Because you build a determination to survive another day that others dont.
but why one ought not to die , waste the valuable gift of life . or just end it
Wait and listen!!!!!!
why one ought to survive?
Shut up and listen!!!!
Are you planning on comitting suicide Fermat?
i have contemplated it , yes . but i have no reason to do it or not do it
Not everything has its reason. You have to think with an optimistic mindset. A mindset desirable to survive, to see the perspective of achieving something when your alive and well. Tkae it when you have an opurtunity. Think of all those who loose one more day to do something they loved to do..
so im undecided
why one ought to have an optimistic mindset?
I guess you can say, if you are going to live or choose to live you might as well make it easier on yourself and have optimistic mindset. but why one ought to make life easy? why one ought to avoid pain?
THIS IS PHILOSOPHY! enjoy ;)
im agreeing that being optimistic will probably lead to a less painful life, less depression. but why one ought to avoid pain?
Optimistic mindset is what keeps you encouraged. You can always have the easy way out of things..But take the challenge..Take the challenge to endure through the situations. I don't think anyone who has attempted suicide has been so proud of doing it.
Avoiding pain allows one to have less pressure among themselves. It will reduce the urge to comit suicide.
jess, youre from hawaii?
katrina - and now you are back to the question of why one ought not to commit suicide
so there are two schools of opinion. some hold that moral facts exist, objective moral facts (moral objectivist) . then there are those who believe moral facts do not exist (relativism)
No i was back to the question on why one out to avoid fain..
you said avoiding pain helps avoid suicide or pressure to commit suicide. And i asked why one ought not to commit suicide
Already answered. As life is a percious gift..You must have a determination to survive another challegnign day. You could just have the easy way out of things. But you must have a challenge for your self and promote yourself that way. To take something more to life and doing something "useful" with it..
why one ought to survive?
that seems to be your basic assumption, can you justify it ?
I already answered that. Its determination that promotes one to survive what others don't. Take the challegnge to do so. Life comes with challenges. Accept them..and overcomming is your goal.
!!!!!!!!! I send you cyber hugs Fermat!!!!! Lol's this is kind of a weird topic btw. Be happy. ^___^ Oi!!!! You and your stupid questions????!! Because if "you" chose not to live I'd be miserable and sad and wonder wth is Fermat?!!? You are important so live for others at the very least if you choose not to live for yourself!!!
katrina, you didnt answer why one ought to survive. you explained what is involved in survival which i did not ask
You don't need to survive. But you need to build the "want" to survivla.
you answered what promotes survival, which i didnt ask
if you already assumed one ought to survive
if you dont need to survive, why would you need to build the 'want' to survive?
No. I think you assumed that you NEED to survive. Its yourself who promotes them. You want to surve because you want to take a challenge of another day with its own troubles.."Take life with what it throws at you" Life is a suspense..Have the courage to take a risk with another day that is lost from others.
when did i claim i want to survive? thats what im asking, why one ought to survive
i never assumed i need to survive either
Its all already answered..repeadetly..
oh did i miss it
ok you said life is a precious gift. so what . why must one ought to value what is precious
Don't you ever value what someone gives you? Don't you appreciate them for it?like that, we appreciate what life presents with us. and our will of surving derives from that.
but thats not a reason why one ought to value what someone gives you
just because other people do it, or just because ive done it in the past .
my answer to this riddle is that humans simply dont need to justify why one ought to do anything. humans act on instinct. justifying behavior to someone else is not necessary to act, and humans act on experience, impulse, instinct, etc
we justify things in order to get agreement , though. However, we dont need agreement to act. i dont need you to agree that i ought to survive (instinct)
this is a tentative solution. it also sort seems to take away the whole free will thing because we behave on instinct without justification. I dont think we use much free will, and im not sure if free will exists. but im on the fence with that
the standard solution , from an atheist or skeptic point of view, is that humans have preferences. so people prefer to survive, but dont have a reason why they must. people prefer to be kind towards animals, but cant justify it ultimately.
however, many people are uncomfortable with this nihilistic point of view. but it does make sense in terms of evolution. your preferences are in fact your instincts and experiences , social conditioning
This is will take a lot of reading..Glancing and skimming through this..Your remarks do seem straight and accurate..Though its hard to accept and acknoledge.
thanks. i got all this after talking to a philosopher and then i did some thinking about it. and now i feel like the floor has been pulled from under me so to speak... things i took for granted before are not so sure to me anymore. but im ok with philosophy inquiry, why i do what i do... i just tell people i behave on instinct and whats shaped from experience. id like your critique , not sure if this is an answer. But then you can ask why one ought to behave what is instinctual or from experience? now the question can be answered (i think). i never claim one ought to behave anyway, all i can say is that i behave instinctually, and i base this on what i know from science. I look at monkeys and i dont see much evidence that they can justify why the monkeys ought to survive or swing from tree to tree. im in a similiar boat, i cant justify most of my behavior. but i can ask why should we behave the way we do, and as far as we know monkeys cant .
Hmm I seem to comprehend what your trying to connect here..However..there is some gap..I guess confidence would be a factor that allows us to do what we do? But then again, you wouldn't be able to answer the tremendous amounts of other qustions left to answer. Its like always wondering.. "What is the meaning of life?" its unanswerable..and has a variety of answers depending on each individual and their situation.
meaning to life is a loaded question, and is ambiguous. but i know what you mean. philosophy is good at categorizing the possibilities
Yes but those are only the possiblities. There is no accurate answer.
not at the moment, no
But it also depends on the person on how acurate it is and how accurate it isn't for them..These philosphical remarks differe person toperson..
Pardon for the spelling mistakes..I am just typing in a hurry.
