the value of truth

Half-formed posts, inchoate philosophies, and the germs of deep thought.

the value of truth

Postby Dan~ » Thu Oct 01, 2020 5:47 am

If it is a matter of your life or death,
who cares if the solution is true or false.
Life comes before truth.
Truth seekers are merely treating data with respect.
But many things are more important than data.

Truth that exists is humanized truth.
It has to do with human priorities,
which came from natural selection.

Are you saying that living is more important (similar to at any cost) than your spiritual health where your truth resides?
I AM OFFICIALLY IN HELL!

I live my philosophy, it's personal to me and people who engage where I live establish an unspoken dynamic, a relationship of sorts, with me and my philosophy.

Cutting folks for sport is a reality for the poor in spirit. I myself only cut the poor in spirit on Tues., Thurs., and every other Sat.

Does natural selection produce human priorities of evil or is there a teleology of evolution that works toward priorities for good?

Evil : Rape, Murder, and abuse.

In nature, these things are common place.
Randomly distributed amoung genetic lineage.

In Nature there are also peace and cures. The peace is a felt tranquility in Natures beauty and bounty--a spiritual peace available to anyone. The Natural cures or relief from pain are many--aspirin, for example. In any event the human race has not evolved into a predominance of the dark side of human nature--the rape, murder, abuse, etc. History does show a progress of ethical behavior and a human propensity toward moral behavior.

That is true.
But why must they be together?
The good and the bad, in the same sandwich.

Two things we will never know--the first beginning and the final end. Isn't it enough to realize that human morality, as we are aware of it in our middle state, is evolving beyond the dark side of human nature? There is more good in our world today than evil. Why do the two, good and evil, run together? You are probably right; they are all too human.

Giving truth a value, based on value creation, which is benevolence,
can mean that fact is beautiful, desirable, honorable, and generally good.
Using some brain, it is possible to create and give value generously.
