Libertarian Ann Archist : Tabula rasa: When you were a child, your mind might have been more of a tabula rasa than it is today. This Latin phrase means “clean slate” and denotes something or someone not affected by experiences and impressions.
Or after an event kicks your ass an your world falls apart. That can make you tabula rasa again too, and it is AWESOME! 5 hours ago - View -
Michael-Alexander Gomez : So yeah, here is a situation if anyone has any advice to give. I have an older friend who owes 100k dollars in backed up child support for 20 odd years of payments. His green card expired and he can't apply for a new one because of the child support that he owes. His 2 children are natural born American citizens. Any advice on what options can possibly be available to him? Questions and comments please... 5 hours ago - View -

Carleton College Philosophy : A recent alum wrote to express concerns that the recent posting suggests that one should pursue philosophy for merely instrumental reasons (i.e. what it can do for you professionally), instead of for its intrinsic value.
This voices an excellent concern and raises the following questions: In these times, where humanities education seems threatened across the board, what is the best way to convince people of philosophy's value? Discuss. 1 day ago - View -

Michael Smith : Since the passing of a gracious neighbor blossom beyond my comfort zone so quickly, I’ve allowed endless sophist to reduce his pain of a love lost.
Garbage is now being left on my gate and within my yard,,, I’m blocked into my own driveway; which is forgiven, (since her passing) etc,,, of the other offenses; but now you’re going to throw and hang garbage in my yard and display upon my fence, your callous contempt of my gentle nature,,, IT’S a FUCKING PROBLEM NOW… I shall think upon the matter of a solution… Empty cups upon my gate, bottles lay waste upon my place, miscellaneous objects I dare not touch,,, having such patients thus truly suck…
Just off the cuff, I shall wait until they all gather, then approach them as a group and state, respect my land or do not land!!!... Maybe to subtle?.... 2 days ago - View -

Alison Sailer Bennett : Finishing up the very last paper of my undergraduate career on Berlin, Rawls, and Nozick. If there is one thing I have learned about paper writing in college, a well-organized paper is the key to academic success, not necessarily its brilliant content. However enlightening or disappointing this fact may be, it is true. Now that I've nailed paper organization, it's time to dedicate the rest of my life to content. 2 days ago - View -

Kaine Diatheke : Since the information highway is so incredibly wide these days, you would hope that people would lose their faith, i.e., concerning myths, but unfortunately, pastors continue to use creative processes to keep the myths couched in different terms, methods and practices. This is one of the reasons why I question the integrity and honesty of the emergent church and their rock star pastors, i.e., those who manipulate herd instinct for the gain: they simply reshape faith, i.e., in the context of a journey, and then sell it to those grasping at emotional straws--it's a circling technique with a much larger circle. Unfortunately, the fans actually think that they are going somewhere.... ~michael w. jones 2 days ago - View -
