Hi Greg, big fan of Ivory Tower Metaphysics and your show here.  One thing I was always curious about was your opinion on Less Wrong.  I can get on board with the heuristics and biases stuff, but what's your opinion on the singulatarianism, what looks to me to be pseudoscience (at least their physics are, their argument for MWI is atrocious), etc.?  You're someone whose opinion I'd consider extremely valuable, because I really don't know what to make of the whole anti-philosophy/transhumanist/SIAI/Oxford FHI etc. package.

I can't say enough how much you and your podcast have improved my grasp on so many important aspects of life! I've went back and listened to nearly every episode over the last couple months. Obviously you're guests are hugely responsible for spreading knowledge but you're podcast is an invaluable platform for these important ideas that is sadly lacking in our culture. Also, you do an excellent job of asking provocative questions and are extremely courteous in your interviews. Keep up the great work and I look forward to many other shows in the future as well as any other personal ventures you be embarking on. Alright, I'm done gushing :D

Hi Greg! I just started listing to some of the new shows on the new site. Quite an improvement from 5 months ago when I last listened to the show. I am a new fan. : )

Normally I wouldn't do this since it is poor form, but I realize that the way I structured the thread was so unclear that nothing meaningful can come as a result.  If two people in a row misunderstand like that, I have to take the blame for poorly expressing myself.  I'd rather scrap the thread than let it build into something pointless.


 


Thanks for your reply.


My apologies,


 


Kris

Hey, the fix for copy and pasting the black text is highlight the whole copy and pasted text. Then click the Tx (rich text) button and it will format it to the white. I sometimes seem to have to do it twice, likely because I'm an idiot at times. If it causes you grief still, let me know and I'll show you a more complicated solution in HTML. It frustrated me for a while and Johnny helped me out. I'm 36 and getting tired of learning new tech tricks. I love tech, but the rooting of the phone and so forth does nothing for me, much like learning HTML.

You asked me about Muslims in Sweden.

I have tried to stay outside of it and not get too engaged in it.

It is both true and propaganda.

What is certainly true is that Somali Jihadists do try to and do succeed to get Somali born or those who have parents from Somali and also other Swedes to support them financely and also by going there and fighting.

Also a few that go to Pakistand and join the Talibans and other groups.

It is also true that some Wahabists??? does try to have total control over young muslims in the suburbs to not dance or be wearing western clothes and they are behind a vogue to use nicab and other such veils.

What is false is the right wing propaganda, they try to describe it so it give them more voters and to recruit young frustrated guys to be "patriots" and they do succeed with a few. Too many. Maybe they get into the parliament next year. But compared or Norway and Denmark and the rest of Europe we have very few such right wing hard core. So it is bad but not as bad as the propaganda says. But I am not very knowledge about it. I try to stay outside of it all. I have been very left wing myself but find the Political Correctness to be a kind of back lash or failure because it goes very wrong due to being too crude and not nuanced enough to be reliable.

So it all depends on the details. the devil is in the details as you know. :)

So that is all I ahve to say on the topic.

You must know that I blame you for Nelson and doone arguing against me! It's fun and a first in over a year. It's pretty good times for me. Thanks. Much better than arguing the same stupid points over and over with a theist in circle jerk fashion. I might actually learn something.

Thank you. My girlfriend stumbled upon the site tonight while looking for info about atheism and science. Looks like a good group to be a part of...

I think if we keep getting members from a grassroot levels, they eventually won't be able to ignore the group

Ummm.... I'm "banned from the computer for the weekend" because of a fight over religion and atheism I had with my family... but I'm breaking the rules while they're all out a church worshipping their invisible man in the sky. lol! ;)

forgot to write about "honor killings". Swedish Left wing politicians denied that it existed despite that Left wing politicians from Persia and Kurdistan had for years told us that it actually did exists in their homelands and now also in Sweden.

I tell this as an example of how "Political Correctness" totally fail to be based on reality. I have been PC from say 13 years old up to me 50 years old but it doesn't work. I see me as social liberal but we have to find better versions of PC because as we do it now it only support racism and xenophobia by being non-realistic idealism.

Fred, is all that jazz about muslims in Sweden true or is it right-wing propaganda?

I don't know what or which jazz you refers to.

Generally I would say that right-wing propaganda always try to make things looks worse than it is but sometimes they maybe do describe things that are troublesome and which the Left wing propaganda defend.

I felt very "righteous about my condemnations of how racist other people where for some 30 years." Then I realized that some of it was actually true.

Muslims do actually force their daughters to marry cousins from their homelands so they can more easily get legal papers to move to Sweden. The girls are lured into this thinking they just go on visit to Grandma but in reality they are forced to marry somebody they don't want to be marry to. Why Left wing politicians accept this has to be because the "Political Correctness" is a too rigid system to learn from reality.

PC makes you look racist and xenophobic and islamophobic when you are not.

And our security analytics do say that some terror organizations do use Sweden as a base. But that is going on all over Europe so don't think Sweden is exception but we have very many muslims here in relation to how few we are.

One small town here in Sweden has taken in more immigrants from Middle East than the whole of USA during same time. 1970 to now. IIRC.

But I know too little about it all. I prefer to stay outside of everything politics because you be seen as a racist regardless of how wellmeaning you are.
