Re: Objections to Minimal Moral Realism

Now, regardless of whether every academic philosopher uses the terms in this way, is that not a clear and commonsensical way of using these terms? Ok, so we seemed to have been speaking past each other on what we meant by “realism.” “Subjectivist realist” may seem intuitive to you, but to most peop...

Re: Objections to Minimal Moral Realism

If you believe that what makes moral propositions true are subjective states, then you're a subjectivist realist. If you think objective states make them true, then you're an objectivist moral realist. Simple. Moral realism - if the word is to going to be used sensibly - denotes all of those who be...

Re: What is an appropriate price for a multivitamin?

@brimstoneSalad Do you think programs like USP Dietary Supplement Verification are a good tool to rely on to avoid those kinds of scams?

Re: Would a naturalistic view of god be beneficial during our present animal extinction event?

It's generally difficult to interpret most abrahamic scriptures as teaching pantheist doctrine. What could easily be confused as pantheism is actually a statement of God’s alleged “omni-presence.” Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence? If I ascend to heaven, you...

Re: The Absolute Worst Video I Have Ever Seen On Youtube

brimstoneSalad and the others know more than I do about this, but the video was short and succinct. Nice job! I noticed you haven’t touched on energy ROI, which is key in demonstrating how and why nuclear energy is a more lucrative business than other sources. Not sure if anyone has seen this alread...

Re: B12 supplement questions

Hi Ishmael, You can check out ‪veganhealth.org‬ or the veganrd for evidence-based nutrition advice on this. Figuring out appropriate dosage of B12 can be difficult because of the way it’s absorbed by the body. Vegans typically take a vitamin because it’s convenient, but getting all of it at once thr...

Re: Nuclear Energy in 2019

Unnatural Vegan recently uploaded a great video on this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8_u5TqnznA I like that she addressed the confusion on relative vs. absolute risk of developing cancer from radiation exposure. Reminds me of the nutty vegans charging that people who eat processed meat have an ...

Re: Ecosia: Does it do anything?

I'm an active lurker on that forum and the Effective Altruism Forum. I haven't bothered registering an account because I've grown too accustomed to this site's interface (I know, I'm weird).

Re: Avoiding food obsession

Hi Hannah, Sounds like you’ve already made the appreciate steps toward recovery. :) brimstoneSalad’s advice in the other thread looks sound, and I’ll only add to avoid seeing veganism as a strict diet regimen and instead as a way to live and eat compassionately. Making the connection between sentien...

Re: My Actual Libertarian Experience

I'll have to read this debate from the start, but at least people are talking about Libertarianism. I mean, the American President is a reality star, Democrats don't seem to have a clear message about anything without infighting, but my party are the "crazy" ones. 😉 Good to have you back, I was afr...
