>>613221 Nobody misunderstands Harris. Neither the American Taliban nor his fanboys misunderstand him. They know what he means and wants.
And everyone else with a functioning brainstem knows what he wants, because he has claimed "misunderstanding," "straw man," and "regressive leftism" every. Single. Time. Someone accused him of spreading irrational warmongering propaganda. And every. Single. Time. His clarification reaffirms exactly what people have accused him of.
>>613558 I'm still astounded that this evolved so solidly here on 4chan. It's like all the bix nood and shitposting started attracting real actual racists and cuckoldry fetishists, who mistakenly believed that 4chan is a "safe space" for their circlejerks. Now they are entrenched deeply in several boards and feel like they own the place, I've heard some of them explicitly declare that 4chan culture is rightwing, kek. It would be one thing if they just stayed in their warren, but they feel the need to spread their ideology to every other board using the most transparent forced memes.
>>613601 >I would think all but /his/ /lit/ and a few other hobby boards lean right/libertarian. /b/, /v/, and /a/ are non political and have no need to buy into racist memes unless spammed. Then you have all the porn boards, can you say those are "right leaning"? It's really when you have a clash of culture/nationality do the rightwingers immigrate from whatever weird forums and message boards they dwell in arrive here at 4chan and start throwing down with infographics. Same thing happened as /x/ became popular, kids from tvtropes and youtube started showing up. "Board culture" is one thing but "site culture" is another.
>>613577 >spread their ideology to every other board using the most transparent forced memes. How do you know they are going around doing such and its not just people on each board having different opinions? Boards are not one person. >>613735 See above.
>>613877 >Neuroscience Yeah, no. It's a PhD in *Cognitive Neuroscience, which is a branch in Psychology. Operating an fMRI doesn't make you a Neurosurgeon, which I think you're confusing this with. It's basically brain theory, which he conveniently wrote his dissertation about with regards to religious beliefs and spirituality, among other things. >Philosophy Just his excuse to look credible when arguing against religion. Like I said, he wouldn't really want to end religion because that's his current primer for financial stability.
>>613920 I'm not saying hes any better really, he's just a very good speaker. 90% of arguing is about looking right not being right. And his debate with Harris was shit because he actually thoroughly defeated his arguments and all Harris could do was >muh evil god >muh dead children Despite them being irrelevant to the topic
>>614099 He's from a rich family and went to Tibet to trip on LSD in a lake surrounded by steep mountains and such, I'm sure he doesn't give a fuck about what some poor retard on 4chan thinks about how long he took to get his degrees.
His philosophical ideas are pretty lame; they are not unique, nor nuanced, and lack any real depth. It's really just fluff that backs the basic ideas of GOD BAD NOT REAL RELIGION SUPER EVIL, but when confronted with actual philosophical, moral, and ethical dilemmas of his ideas he has nothing to say. He rode off of his initial popularity on the New Atheist wave and fell flat on his face when attempting to prove his merit.
He got a degree in Neuroscience and the only work he's done was his brief thesis on how religion affects the mind. NOTHING ELSE, HE PAYED WHO KNOWS HOW MUCH FOR A DEGREE HE USES PURELY FOR CREDENTIALS. Someone should post that Webm/video of the room of real Neuro-scientists laughing at the very thought of calling Harris one of them. It's a textbook case of pseudo-intellectualism.
Now I think there's nothing wrong with being an Atheist. But from a philosophical stance the inability to prove Moral Objectivity and reliance on existential nihilism is a pretty big dilemma in the world of philosophy for Atheists, and Harris hasn't contributed anything to solving this dilemma. He tried to use a Logical argument, but even he admits this is extremely half baked and useless. Furthermore, him claiming to be a Skeptic then sperging over Eastern Spiritually all the time is pretty fucking hypocritical imo.
He has his little cult of fedoras still, who like OP and others in this thread are convinced that he is eternally right. And after every criticism he takes he runs off to his podcast and assures his little cult followers that he is just being misrepresented.
