I just realized
That sentience is a death sentence
reality is configured by how we percieve
and since we're aware and ect we're devolving getting almost dumber
our brains smaller
and we process less
autism used to not exist
until society developed
we're becoming a species of that to our own doing is "Evolving" and having less kids, Sentience
is almost a deathbed and since we have
we're doomed we devolve because lower birth rates are tied to evolution
human evolution so,...

Why do people say Socrates was the first philosopher when there were plenty of pre-socratic philosophers. Both in Greece and abroad.
Pre-Socratic philosophers weren't really philosophers because they didn't think about things in a systematic and cohesive way that we would recognise as philosophy. They were 'thinkers'.
Socrates was the first philosopher because he established the foundations of the discipline by pointing out how flimsy the intellectual foundations of the pre-Socratics were, and in doing so asked the fundamental questions that form the basis of philosophy.
I'm from /fit/ and was wondering about ancient Greeks and their's training methods.
What was their's training methods, how did they prepare for warfare and the Olympic games?
Did they trained mainly with their own bodyweight?
Also general history and fitness/sports thread.
(sorry for my English)
they had stone free weights called halteres
Are we sure this guy's the real pope? I refuse to believe that the leader of my church and God's mouth on Earth is a Muslim sympathizer and a socialist.
Benedict is still alive right? Maybe he's still the true pope
The Pope is an elected official, famalam. You don't have to like it, it's just how it is.
But as someone who is Christ on Earth, don't you think it'd be a little odd if Christ wasn't a "Muslim sympathizer?" (i.e. has empathy for displaced people)
>were the nazis bad guys?
>was the british empire good or bad?
What the fuck /his/? What is up with these questions? I would like to remind you there is no good or bad in history, judging the past with modern morals is stupid.
How would Iran have turned out if he didn't get coup'd by the CIA?
Mussolini's quote in pic related was made years after he'd made disparaging remarks about Slovenes and publicly endorsed the idea of an Aryan race.
Did Mussolini ever relax/change any of Italy's repressive policies toward minorities after making the statement in pic related?
What is the philosophy of memes /his/? What makes a meme a meme and a dank meme a dank meme?
>You can find men who have gone so far as to profess wisdom and yet maintain that one should not offer violence to one’s own life, and hold it accursed for a man to be the means of his own destruction; we should wait, say they, for the end decreed by nature. But one who says this does not see that he is shutting off the path to freedom.
What did Seneca mean by this?
HE MEANT THAT THE CONSCIOUS BEING, BY BEING ESSENTIALLY AGAINST NATURE, MUST STRIVE TO BECOME ITSELF VIA CONSCIOUS DIRECTION OF ITS OWN BECOMING, RATHER THAN LETTING HIMSELF BE DRAGGED BY THE BECOMING OF THE NATURAL, WHICH WOULD BE TANTAMOUNT TO RELINQUISHING HIS CONDITION AS A CONSCIOUS BEING TO THE TORRENT OF NATURE; TANTAMOUNT TO BECOMING AN AUTOMATON.
TRANSCENDENCE OF PRECONDITIONS, BOTH, ONTOLOGICAL, AND NATURAL, IS REQUISITE FOR ACHIEVEMENT OF FREEDOM.
Why Brasilia wasn't as successful as United States? Is that because United States stolen valuable goods from North American natives?
Is this the world's largest and longest-lasting LARP game?
Any reason for Evangelist Christians to support Israel?
I know they are God's chosen people and he did promise them the land, but whenever they would stop worshiping him or go degenerate he would punish them and sometimes even kick them out of the land.
Modern day Israel do both have a big non Religiously Orthodox Jewish population nor does try to limit homosexuality and other stuff that isn't really well liked in the OT.
Can we get an art thread going?

Why aren't the "skeptic" atheists of /his/ solipsists? Are they dishonest?
What was the identity of Vlad the Impaler, I mean in a "National" sense?
He's memed as a Romanian figure but looking at the damned map, Transylvania was under the rule of the Kingdom of Hungary, which was fuckhuge at the time.
Shouldn't he be seeing himself as a Hungarian Noble as opposed to a Romanian one? Given that Romania wasn't a thing at the time?
He saw himself at the "Lord of Transylvania." Applying nationalities at the time would be useless.
Transylvania is under the Hungarian Kingdom alright, but is the home of Szekelers, Hungarians, Romanians, and the odd Saxon. It's pretty multiethnic.
In case anyone cares.
