Re: New Thread Required
Yeah, I already got consigned to the showcase forum years ago for things just like this. But it is not my fault. It is your fault by for example saying that you do not understand that creation is a free act. It is not credible to me, that you do not understand that creation is a free act. And if true such would be a horriffic ignorance in my opinion.

In any case if I would be consigned to the showcase forum again, we would have to make it convincingly clear that such does not mean that all knowledge about freedom and decisions is oppressed on this forum.

I do not actually seek out strange ideas, I just proceed on the basis that freedom is real. I take the logic about freedom from the most common knowledge, and very common religion, and for some time also from that single science theory which confirms it is all true.

For example I have been saying for a long time that decisions come from nothing. Now I read the abstract of a science paper by one of those anticipation scientists, which says that decisions come from nothing and are nowhere. While actually I had been arguing that decisions have a location, but close enough. It is all perfectly reasonable, and there is no good reason to oppress it.

I said by art of reasonable judgement we can find the spirit. It is an art, not a science, I did not offer proof, I offered judgement.

This is the moment where you stop following the scientific method and start practicing philosophy. Coincidentally, concepts like Justice and Free will actually do belong to Philosophy instead of Science, so perhaps you are simply conflicted or misguided. Your assertations would be better served as philosophical arguments, were they expounded and explained a little better. Probably the wrong forum for that, anyway.
