Gideon Jagged replied to bongani muthwa's discussion 'Is marriage still relevant, even towards the era of post religionism?'
"The urge to pair-bond, whether it's formally initiated or not, is almost universal. I think that something like marriage will continue. The religious mythos of the conjugal union is undergoing a purge and I think that's a good thing."

Gideon Jagged commented on dr howard davis's blog post 'Nazareth did not exist arguement'
"The name "Nazarene" hung around the neck of the figure who became the Christ of the gospels by the end of the first century. It has been suggested that this referred to his skill as a healer. "Nazar" being a title given to such…"

"I get the impression you haven't done a lot of philosophical speculating. —Gideon"

"I think you would be surprised at how many would choose to make that kind of sacrifice for their fellow Britons. —Gideon"

Gideon Jagged replied to Arcus's discussion 'Greater good or individual right (Bentham or Rawls)?'
"The 'what-if' scenario you've described is just the kind of thought experiment that tests ethical theories.  In this case, without being able to read the future, you (or Churchill) would have to go with the best information you…"

Gideon Jagged replied to Arcus's discussion 'Greater good or individual right (Bentham or Rawls)?'
"I gave you an answer: appropriation without consent is wrong. The either/or individual or society IS a dichotomy.  I maintain that is a false one as, apparently, do you (from your last reply, anyway). Ideology is the problem, IMHO.…"

Gideon Jagged replied to Arcus's discussion 'Greater good or individual right (Bentham or Rawls)?'
"If I am robbed of choice, that is neither justice nor a manifestation of Utilitarianism.  So, in answer to your question: appropriation without consent is wrong. Justice, in isolation from the culture in which it manifests, is nothing…"

Gideon Jagged replied to Arcus's discussion 'Greater good or individual right (Bentham or Rawls)?'
"The individual does not exist in isolation from the culture she or he is a part of.  What does this individual owe to the society that afforded her or him the great benefits that such structures bestow? (shelter, sustenance, protection, the…"

Gideon Jagged replied to Arcus's discussion 'Greater good or individual right (Bentham or Rawls)?'
"The right to confiscate land is called "Eminent Domain".  There are three things to say about it: 1) it is very rarely used (an offer for the land—usually very generous—would be made before recourse to it); 2) the…"

"What you say is true, but that is NOT Utilitarianism. —Gideon"
Mar 23, 2013
Gideon Jagged replied to Arcus's discussion 'Greater good or individual right (Bentham or Rawls)?'
"The two positions are not incompatible.  The first statement is of utilitarian ethics.  No one can be forced to give up their rights under this system.  A utilitarian would consider it unethical to remove rights from individuals…"

Why you left your religion.
When answers to my questions about important subjects (life, the Universe, and everything) went unsatisfactorily answered by the priests who taught in my high school, I looked for answers myself.

What I learned and how I learned to think clearly led me to the conclusion that the god of Abraham was a physical and metaphysical absurdity. No god = no religion. I've concluded that religions are man made institutions with no relevance to the lives of humans anymore. What's more, their influence is almost universally bad.

We need to educate people so that religions fade in influence as quickly as possible.
