Carl H replied to Sabrina's discussion Does anyone here have any tattoos?
"Lots of people seem to get ones that are meaningful to them in one way or the other. I am totally the opposite; only a few of my tattoos are significant. Not sure if I can even say I have distinct tattoos anymore since most of my body is covered…"

Carl H replied to Michael Kirk's discussion Truth
"This is in reply to abreo. Lets see if I can make this coherent. You stated earlier that a consciousness must exist. I was agreeing with you: 1 conciousness = something 2 something != nothing That is all I was saying. And moving on... So if a…"

Carl H replied to E_Lewis's discussion Is Being Gay a Choice?
"I do apologize. Reading that page plus a lack of sleep has made me rather cranky so please don't take it personally. And like the studies I am drawing correlation, this one between non-secular sites and these behavioral correlation studies, a…"

Carl H replied to E_Lewis's discussion Is Being Gay a Choice?
"First. It is not widely sourced. It is hosted on one site with no almost no page hits, and on the entirety of the internet it is only referenced in  a few religious sights and forums pertaining to those site and other forums like this one. Not…"

Carl H replied to Michael Kirk's discussion Truth
"No i didn't say that nothing outside of my conciseness existed; I said that nothing does not exist.. for the very reason that consciousness itself must exist. And our knowledge does not stem from sensory experience. Belief stems from sensory…"

Carl H replied to E_Lewis's discussion Is Being Gay a Choice?
"It wont let me reply to your last post, so I will do it here. Unfortunately I find that it is really less of a political issue, but a religious one that I have with the study you gave me in particular. Not only have I been unable to find a…"

Carl H replied to Michael Kirk's discussion Truth
"I would disagree. The question could be: do mathematical principles exist without a consciousness? I would think so. After all, there can not be nothing."

Carl H replied to E_Lewis's discussion Is Being Gay a Choice?
"The LeVey study is also more than 20 years old. I never contended that scientific research can, at the moment, give us a definitive answer, nor do I think that deviation in sexual orientation is genetic in nature. However I would like to see some…"

Carl H replied to E_Lewis's discussion Is Being Gay a Choice?
"I would hardly say that ascribing "biology" as a causative agent is simplification in anything but a linguistic sense. Behavior is the choices you make to differentiate them is just semantics. Also I would postulate that you cannot make a…"

Carl H replied to Michael Kirk's discussion Truth
"I would disagree with you. Mathematics is not about validity of empirical observations, insofar as it deals with abstract concepts like quantity, space, change, etc then it is not falsifiable. Perhaps when dealing with theorems it is, but theorems,…"

Carl H replied to E_Lewis's discussion Is Being Gay a Choice?
"I guess I am not communicating well. To address your second point first: I really must stress the distinction between choices, i.e. behavior, the conscious decisions we make, and the brain the those behaviors arise from. All I am postulating is that…"

Carl H replied to Michael Kirk's discussion Truth
"In my opinion you have struck on something useful here, mathematics, because it is arbitrary and not based in sensory experience. In all possible worlds 1+1=2 whether or not an intelligence is there to experience it. Because 20 is abstract and the…"

Carl H replied to E_Lewis's discussion Is Being Gay a Choice?
"Spatial awareness centers do not exist. The posterior parietal cortex does help localize the body and objects in space, but I did find the article to which i assume you were referring and it really has nothing to do with the premise of my argument.…"

Carl H replied to Michael Kirk's discussion Truth
"I agree that to argue like that would be ridiculous, if not an interesting thought experiment. I just found that asking if there was an immutable truth was rather begging the question. A true truth is true! "
Nov 27, 2012
Carl H replied to E_Lewis's discussion Is Being Gay a Choice?
"Interesting but rather irrelevant question, since a modern understanding of neuroscience has established, pretty soundly, that all mental functions are a result of biological processes. From a reductionist approach we have derived an answer! I…"

Profile Information

What Kind of Nerdfighter Are You?
The kind.
About Me:
Not sure if a blurb on a website is the best way to describe, arguably, the most complex consciousness in the solar system (homo sapiens, not me in particular).
Favorite Books, Movies, Music, and more
At the moment I am reading E.O. Wilson's The Diversity of Life and a book on organic synthesis, both are interesting; conflicted on what book is my favorite overall.

Not big on movies or television for that matter, sorry.

Black and death metal. Baroque, classical period, romantic, etc classical music. Classical and flamenco guitar.
Not even going to try and make that into a coherent and correctly punctuated sentence.
What's your favorite thing to put on your head?
Not sure.
If you could do your happy dance with anyone who would it be with?
My girlfriend.
When did you start watching the Vlogbrothers?
2012
Make up your own DFTBA initialism!
No thanks. I like yours.
