General Submission

Empathy and Charity

I have lain down my universal doctrine, and for the rest of my life I consciously understand at the most basic levels who I am, and what I stand for.

The Truth About Atheism

It seems to me, in America, we seem to have names for everything. If you can describe an idea, and another person can understand what you are talking about, then it is time to give that idea a name. Behind the billboard that is the word, there is the true breadth of the idea known as the definition. What it takes to truly define an idea, it seems will always be debatable, as much diversity of ideas that there is, there is even more diverse approaches to developing the definitions of the ideas. To paraphrase Spinoza, that which contains the most reality, is the most difficult to define.

Categories, Section 1, Part 6

Quantity is either discrete or continuous. Moreover, some quantities
are such that each part of the whole has a relative position to the
other parts: others have within them no such relation of part to part.

Instances of discrete quantities are number and speech; of continuous,
lines, surfaces, solids, and, besides these, time and place.

Freedom, Education and Discipline

The universal calling to limit human suffering in that fundamental authentic and sincere human empathy is there in the basics of the system, but if the goal is to limit human suffering in a Utilitarian Consequencialism, then we have to not only look at other options to limit suffering, but we have to embrace them and move forward with their consequences without falling into an infinite debate. Our collective lives depend on it.

The Universal Universal is Beckoning

It starts with the fundamental universals, and can be understood in my Fundamental Doctrine of Universal Humanism, and it trickles down as if constructed like a pyramid. The tip of the pyramid is the most simplistic law that is understood clearly and easily, and can be acted on by feeling. To be clear, when called on to answer for yourself, you should know this simple guiding principle. There is no such belief, based on the belief of knowing.

Meditations #1

SEVERAL years have now elapsed since I first became aware that I had accepted, even from my youth, many false opinions for true, and that consequently what I afterward based on such principles was highly doubtful; and from that time I was convinced of the necessity of undertaking once in my life to rid myself of all the opinions I had adopted, and of commencing anew the work of building from the foundation, if I desired to establish a firm and abiding superstructure in the sciences.

I Dropped the Religious God By Choice

I want to make this clear, because religious people, for their own convenience leave a significant amount of details missing from the story of life. Here is a perfect example:

There is No Real Atheist, and No Real Theist

Every time I think about the implications of my Universal Humanism, I find support constantly. I understand people of the past, and present, and it becomes easy to see morality as it is, and as it should be. The relations between ideas do not become certain to an instant, but, you come to an understanding that they are not supposed to be. You take the step forward that allows you to see that metaphysical ideas grow out of duration, proportional comparison, and consequencialism.

Meditations #2

But, to this end, it will not be necessary for me to show that the whole of these are false--a point, perhaps, which I shall never reach; but as even now my reason convinces me that I ought not the less carefully to withhold belief from what is not entirely certain and indubitable, than from what is manifestly false, it will be sufficient to justify the rejection of the whole if I shall find in each some ground for doubt.
