Lol. Satan?

I mean no offence to Satan. But nazi occultism was quite a bit more potent. Its what tore them down, too. Hitler knew that all too well. His invasion of Russia was a showdown with other Vikings - but the Ruskies are the real ones, which after January '43, Stalingrad, Hitler admitted and then decided Germany had to be destroyed. The Amerikanistas however were not so inclined, needing it as a buffer against said Viking nation.

You don't shit. You're talking about the great WW2 loser, the great "villain" in Western eyes (maybe the entire world's). Once a great man of history like that is thrown to the dogs, they'll invent all kinds of hearsay and folklore around him; come up with real convincing "evidence". That Hitler dabbled in the occult is just as likely to be a hoax that some desperate socialist/democrat at the time thought he could get away with knowing that Hitler had lost anyway... as much as it might be the truth.

We're living in the "confusosphere" (as I like to call it, and as far as I'm concerned). No information you get from the media (which is all the information you get) can be trusted. Thus, we are not surrounded by information, but by (potential) misinformation--and we can't tell the difference!!! INFURIATING!!! :angry-screaming:

Welcome to the next dark age, America!!! This time, blinded by too much information rather than not enough!

This is why I will always say, stick to your hands-on immediate experiences, tend to your local surroundings, keep a scientific atttitude, and maybe try to find connection with the friends and loved ones around you. At least that feels a bit more real.

(Sorry... ILP members might have to forgive me today... 3 tabs of acid. Will apologize for any embarrassments tomorrow morning.)

What we take ourselves to be doing when we think about what is the case or how we should act is something that cannot be reconciled with a reductive naturalism, for reasons distinct from those that entail the irreducibility of consciousness. It is not merely the subjectivity of thought but its capacity to transcend subjectivity and to discover what is objectively the case that presents a problem....Thought and reasoning are correct or incorrect in virtue of something independent of the thinker's beliefs, and even independent of the community of thinkers to which he belongs.

No, the wolf has evidently found lots of love!

Yes, she's awesome.

The difference between the age of the two kids seems to be only about one year. :)

It reminds me of the fact that the difference between one of my brothers' age and my age is one year.

Nope, bought them. And they're REALLY cheap! Not just price-wise. The left knee pad on my son's DV costume was sown on backwards. So he had the knee pad on the front on the right but behind the knee on the left. :doh: Luckily, the material is sticky enough for us to twist the left leg around and bring the knee pad to the front.

My daughter's the storm trooper doing the bad-ass pose. Normally, as a parent, I'm supposed to discourage attitude in my children, but I can't help it. I love that she's developing a sort of "bad ass" attitude. I just remind her not to be rude or insulting to people. She's only 9 but she's already acting like a teen. She calls her younger brother 'bro', and I overheard her doing facetime with her friend the other day saying "...that's so dope!" She's starting to remind me of Summer Smith.

I think it's a result of moving into Piaget's concrete operational stage of cognitive development.

Well, since I dropped them off at their mother's afterwards, I didn't really get a chance to. Can't speak for their mother though. But I did go home and opened the box of Halloween candy I bought and had a few. :D

      Aw, beautiful - and this is why love evolved.

      Maybe that there are other reasons too why love evolved (if it did at all [because: perhaps love was, is and will always be there]), but this one belongs to them - in any case.

      By the way:

      My children are adults now. If they were not, I would not publish any photo of them.

      My first child was born when I was 21½ years old.

      I think that love evolved (if we can use that word) as a way to not only perpetuate the human species but to save it.
      There are different forms of love. I think that love is like the ocean, it ebbs and it flows

      Your daughter was beautiful. It also says something about you that you would not insert your children online when they are young. I can never understand the human's need to show off their children rather than to protect them.

      You are also loyal to your friends I have found.
      SAPERE AUDE!


      If I thought that everything I did was determined by my circumstancse and my psychological condition, I would feel trapped.


      What we take ourselves to be doing when we think about what is the case or how we should act is something that cannot be reconciled with a reductive naturalism, for reasons distinct from those that entail the irreducibility of consciousness. It is not merely the subjectivity of thought but its capacity to transcend subjectivity and to discover what is objectively the case that presents a problem....Thought and reasoning are correct or incorrect in virtue of something independent of the thinker's beliefs, and even independent of the community of thinkers to which he belongs.

      Thank you very much.

      You are right.

      The evolution (if we can use that word) of love is not only a way to perpetuate the human species but also to save it. We can observe this process in those families where parents protect their children as much as it is necessary for the children’s development.

      Love is needed for both phylogenesis and ontogenesis. Without love there is no evolution, at least not for "higher“ living beings. The "higher“ the living beings are, the more love they need.

      Here on ILP are many (too many?) members who are saying that the will to power is the only aspect when it comes to evolution; but that is only one side of the evolutionary "coin“, the other one is the will to love.

      We should have both a realistic and an idealistic interpretation of evolution. Power is always present, but love is not. So, it is more necessary to support, to demand, to premote love. How should we do this? - [1] By practising love; [2] by enlighten others and clarifying what love means; (3) by fighting all enemies of love (how? => [1] and [2]).

      You can find the most lack of love in materialistic/hedonistic times where the individual coolness is a fashion and mostly nothing else than hidden weakness because of the lack of love.

      Why do you consider power and love to be antagonistic?
