Even if it's against the rules i'm here to promote my lil g+ group Exhuman Inquiries, or "The Three Pound Brain reblog group" because that's mainly what I do. Y'all can join in if you like it. It's mainly a forum for me to show off my poseur grasp of complicated neuro sci and abstract philosophy stuff I don't really understand but know makes me looks cool as fuck to gesture to.

There are some smart people here so if anyone wants to join and post feel free.

Y'all wouldn't believe the mixture of hostility and fascination I've seen after dropping little Bakkerian hints and trails into online antinatalist and pessimist philosophy groups I hang out in... I'm such an evil reductionist scientism-ist asshole  ;D

This antinatalism stuff is a joke, right? Not being factious, asking without judgement. The link uses pictures as if it's being presented as humor.

In general, there are those that take it seriously, as with just about everything.

The wiki page, I'm not sure. Wikihow has a ton of stuff on there, its generally a kind of general help page for anything you can imagine. It always uses those types of pictures to go with its explanations. However, I too got the feeling that whoever put that together was having fun with it lol.

Wow. This sounds so appealing. A self-confessed poseur's invitation to participate in a downscale TPB. So I can read more rants against intentionality.

I'll pass. One "evil reductionist scientism-ist asshole" is plenty.

Cordially,
BFK

Did something get under your skin? I'm curious what you find so distasteful, as your post seems to indicate to me, BFK. What's up?

I don't follow, and you're probably over the line for personal attacks, or close to it. You're of course free to not visit the site as you will, or disagree with its contents here should you prefer, but do adhere to the rules.

Further discussion on what is or isn't allowed can be done over at the Building Better Communities thread :) .

Noted. Apologies to JamesA01 and the broader TSA Forum. I'm an inveterate line-crosser, and JamesA01's post raised my ire, what with the obvious delight he himself takes in metaphorical eye-gouging, if I may be allowed the small liberty. Again, if my sarcasm offended, apologies to all.

This is interesting - I took Jame's post entertainingly, but maybe I don't understand it - but then again, when he referenced the smarties in our forum, I know he wasn't talking about me.

I'm with ya, Beard - our "attacks" are misconstrued as other than love  :P

I got nailed for calling the Witches ( in Earwa ) the Bitches - all was meant as humor, making a little fun of the critics of PON for it's treatment of women ... anyways, didn't go over well, LOL! But I regret it, that was the last we've heard from one of my favorite posters, hope they know I was just having fun with them ( not intended at their expense ).

I don't think scientific reductionism and the attack on intentionality is a laughing matter, that's all. But I need to engage more civilly.

Clicked on the link provided by JamesA01. I learn that EFILism is a belief that all sentient life is best ended. No genocide, at least not yet; suicide is recommended to all.

I'll take a pass on that viewpoint.

ETA: JamesA01 notes that EFILism does not recommend suicide. That is true, and I regret the error. Life is viewed as an unjustifiable imposition on those who are born. There's more, but....life's too short, imho.
