“Non” Non-Stamp Collectors

Should Appeals to Unreason Be Used in the Defense of Reason?

secretstostampcollecting.com “For the first time since the flower series began, Canada Post decided to take a different approach to securing images of the sunflowers that appear on these stamps.(…) Ottawa AAFC’s Central Experimental Farm in Ottawa (…) graciously set aside a plot, and planted and raised the sunflowers you see on these stamps. This is quite possibly the first time in Canada that flowers were grown specifically to appear on a stamp, which makes this Sunflower stamp issue not only brilliant and beautiful, but one that marks a first in Canadian philately.” Source: Canada Post Collecting stamps by subjects is a such fascinating hobby! …………………………………………………………………………………………… Learn how to create video like this one: www.janicedugas.com

    @Anekantavad First off nice video, is it ok to use appeal to emotion or reason. I cinserely believe that depends on the matter at hand. If it would have stopped Hitler of killing lots of people, I hope it goes without question that it is the right method to use. However in religion that issue lies a bit complicated there are a lot of people in religion that both use it as a beacon of morality but also immorality. Next to that, the vids are also just funny, maybe even for a theist who handle it.

    @Numinous123 “You’re trying to play the old straw man gambit. You did it very badly, I might add.”
    Now I have to laugh. You think I am religious, do you? Well, here’s news for you, I am not. I am not a theist, and I am not an atheist. I am an unbeliever. I am not really an anythingist, apart from maybe a skeptical secular humanist. Who is stramanning whom here? You’ve got the wrong guy, my friend.
    I say, this was probably the most fun I’ve had on YT for a while!
    Thanks!
    :-)

    @Numinous123 “Just because we’re not buying what you’re selling and telling you why, does not mean we’re ‘dirty'”
    What am I selling? And who said anything about dirt?
    Strawman, no?
    :-)

    @Numinous123 “Actually, since you don’t offer and actual belief in your magical man in the sky, we have no reason to believe in him”
    My magical man in the sky? Which one would that be?
    “you’re trying to get people to believe in something for which you offer no proof,”
    No I’m not.
    That was easy!
    :-)

  5. Numinous123 says:

    As for the atheist experience. You know you can call them, right?

    Do it. Tell us when so we can listen.

    Just because we’re not buying what you’re selling and telling you why, does not mean we’re ‘dirty’.

    If that’s not dirty on your part, I don’t know what is. You know what they call people who say things for which they offer no proof? Liars.

    As for ‘getting in people’s faces’. Just because we call you on your nonsense and lies, does not equal ‘getting in your face.’.

  6. Numinous123 says:

    Here’s the other thing. Karl Marx does not equal atheism. I’m not a Marxist, and yet, and many other people, I have never seen the logic of believing in an invisible man in the sky. You’re trying to play the old straw man gambit. You did it very badly, I might add.

    I could just as easily say: “You support the Catholic Church… You must support pedophilia”… although, I would probably have more of a right to say that, than what you say.

  7. Numinous123 says:

    Actually, since you don’t offer and actual belief in your magical man in the sky, we have no reason to believe in him… or any of the other thousands of religions currently being practiced.

    As for Atheist appealing to emotion… you’re trying to get people to believe in something for which you offer no proof, with only the promise of eternal punishment if you don’t believe in it, and paradise if you do believe… after you die.

    You got a response to that? Because I’d love to hear it.

    @earthboy21 Without axia, nothing is true, and nothing is false. Attack the axiom, and everything is a house of cards.

  9. earthboy21 says:

    @Anekantavad Infinite regress is just how it is. It doesn’t make a fool out of anyone, and it doesn’t mean that all explainations are equally valid. Some explanations (for things) are false.

  10. Anekantavad says:

    @Yahweigh I disagree. If you think a Libyan thinks like an Englishman or a Japanese thinks like a filipino, you and I must agree to differ.

  11. Yahweigh says:

    @Anekantavad We do make sense to each other but our languages are different.

  12. Anekantavad says:

    @Yahweigh ???

  13. Anekantavad says:

    @earthboy21 Well, what I am saying is that infinite regress ends up making fools of us all. I could ask:What’s a substance, and then question the building blocks of that explanation ad infinitum.
    The point I am trying to make is that one explanation is ultimately as good as another, as Stephen Hawking admitted in the first chapter of A Brief History of Time.
    :-)

  14. earthboy21 says:

    Still very interested in hearing your response to my last comment :)

  15. Yahweigh says:

    @Anekantavad Yes. but languages dont

  16. Anekantavad says:

    @Yahweigh “we all percieve the same things because we wouldnt make sense to eachother else”
    We don’t make sense to each other. Does a Libyan make sense to an Englishman? Does a Japanese make sense to a filipino? Does an African-American make sense to a White American?

  17. Yahweigh says:

    @Anekantavad yes… BUT that is PERCEPTION, we all percieve the same things because we wouldnt make sense to eachother else… no matter how differently we might see things.

  18. earthboy21 says:

    An element is the word we use to describe one of a class of substances that cannot be separated into simpler substances by chemical means. For example, you cannot break down an atom of helium with chemical means. Space-time is a little more difficult to explain, and I don’t have the space on youtube to copy/paste a science textbook. What point are you trying to make?

  19. Anekantavad says:

    @earthboy21 What’s an element? What is space-time?
    And I didn’t ask for a description of certain aspects. I asked you what they were.

  20. earthboy21 says:

    @Anekantavad Matter is the term that describes that which consists of elements and that which occupies space-time. It can take various forms depending upon the conditions of the environment. Matter and its various states can be observed and manipulated to suit whatever we fancy…to an extent. What did you think it was?

  21. Anekantavad says:

    @Yahweigh Why do you say it is improbable? Let me explain it this way: If “you” could somehow see all of “your” reality, but with all “my” prejudices, interpretations, categorizations, value judgments etc, would it be something “you” could recognize at all? In a sense, we all actually create our own entire universes, and if we could (as it were) peer into each others’ minds, we would probably be shocked at its utter alienness and incomprehensibility.

  22. Anekantavad says:

    @earthboy21 “Gravity is a concept science has developed to explain what we observe; matter’s attraction.”
    Fair enough. What’s matter?
    You had to see this one coming.
    :-)

  23. earthboy21 says:

    @Anekantavad Gravity is a concept science has developed to explain what we observe; matter’s attraction. Science does not posit absolutes, and you appear to be asking for an absolute answer. Gravity is warped space-time around matter. Also, the difference between faith and science is that faith is not based on demonstrably observable events, and are clearly the concoctions of fantasy.

  24. gulbirk says:

    I could answer this easily. There are different degrees. You have week atheist, strong atheist, agnostic atheist, anti theists, etc. I dont think it exist anyone who is spreading atheism. I have yet to see someone go around telling people to not believe in god for no reason. What most atheist promote is skeptecism.

  25. Yahweigh says:

    @Anekantavad it is gravity.

    @rozfruchtman Thanks! Greatly appreciate your taking time to comment and happy you enjoyed the video.
    To quote the American Topical Association : “A topical collection is not a hodge-podge of empty spaces in an album separated by a few stamps; it is always complete. True, you will be missing stamps pertaining to your topic, but others will never know that a species or two are lacking from your flower bouquet – if, as an example, you decide to collect flowers on stamps” . All the best! Janice
