A real-size medieval castle built with feces is still just a big pile of feces

This is one of my sayings, although I don't usually say it out loud. It expresses how we shouldn't be intimidated by the type of arguments that try to make you look tiny, silly and isolated. Typically, it happens when discussing religion, but not only. When people say things like "but it's thousands years old !", "but people have written numerous books on the subject !", "but people have built cathedrals in the name of this religion !", "but some people have dedicated all their life to that subject !", "but it is taught in 236 universities around the world !", "but billions of people believe in this, and empires have been founded on it !", "but human beings have always done that !", etc..

No matter how well the walls and all the surfaces of the castle have been polished, it is still just a big pile of feces.

Not much of a fecalpheliac myself but I see what you're saying.

I used to be skeptical ... and then I 'saw' with every fiber of my being. One can't turn away from that.

Funny, I feel the same about socialism and most modern art.

Yeah, but it's our big pile of feces. Everyone's. None of "it" exists in a vacuum and there is "Nothing new under the sun". Everything in the #-pile is built on some of the other #. You can't remove a piece of # and expect all of the other # to remain as it was.

So, technically, it's a #-castle. That's more than a pile of #.

K?

Until one also understands that subjective observation is inherently flawed.

Objective observation is the only way to really verify anything with relative accuracy.

And maybe you're right. The important thing is to not let yourself be intimidated by how big it looks or how many people believe in it. Marx could be full of feces. And usually all it takes is to plunge your hand in it, and if it stinks it usually means it's made of feces.

That's easy for you to say. LOL

What has been seen cannot be unseen.

No, it's a pile of feces made to look like a castle.

I've never sculpted with poop, myself. I imagine it would be really messy and smelly. I do know somebody that microwaved poop and he said it got rock hard. The whole place stank, or so he said. Why did he microwave poop? I never said he was right in the head. But back to castles made of poop. Seems like flies would be a huge problem; unless you ate flies and then it would be a snack bar.

You stated:

Your first sentence is true, but no way the second line is true. It cannot be. At least not from human consciousness. It seems that quantum physics is getting toward proving that objectivity is impossible. Let's just say it is all relative....

Plenty of houses have been made of pooh

Go research how good they stand up to the environment

They use pooh for energy as well, to make the houses

I guess it's still a castle no matter what you think is the right building material or energy to build it

I wouldn't live in one but who am I to say what is right for others, sounds like you think your opinion is the only valid opinion

Go research poo houses, poo energy

Get off your high horse

Think your post is a pile

Mythbusters proved that you can polish a turd, so that is actually possible. But I don't think it made it smell any better.

You could bronze one, too, and hang it from your rear view mirror. You could also gold plate it and make a lovely necklace.

That was just a metaphor, you know ? Telling me that there exist houses made of feces to try to contradict me, means you've completely missed the point.

You saying "I have missed the point", is not a true statement

Your statement is false in such away that you place your value on what you think is right, demeaning my opinion over your opinion. Your opinion may not be valid

What if I listened to your argument and thought it was a castle of wee.
You and your opening rant are a castle built of piss, it's not valid

So effectively your opinion whatever it is is that same castle built of pooh to someone with a different opinion.
Nothing makes you right other than your own self righteousness, your righteousness is that castle built of piss to those with another view

Your metaphor is built on soft sand, you are that soft sand, you could be the party that is wrong, that's all I am saying

You don't understand because the world teaches you how smart you are, you are not.

I see. You're a believer in this or that religion and you felt offended by the criticism. But my OP was not directly directed at religion. The same metaphor could be applied to the theory of evolution for example, since you seem to disagree with the theory of evolution. This is why I say you have not understood the OP.

And my OP was not a rant, but an actual philosophical argument. A mod thought it was smart to move it to the rant forum, maybe because he himself is a believer in this or that religion and he felt offended, perhaps because he hasn't, like you, understood the OP. It has become perilous to criticize religion on ATS lately.

If you like

The truth is you think you are better than anyone else, your opinion is better than any other persons and your castle looks good, smells good, seems solid, to me its made of wee

You can say about me, You are all offended, You are fragile, You are bitter and seeking revenge, You are religious,You are an evolutionist.

The truth, you are standing on your own righteousness in a castle others may think is made of wee

See the analogy, better remove that tree from your own eye before removing the splinter from another persons eye

I am criticising you about your superiority complex, you threw a rock through my window, I am throwing them at your glass house

Evolutionists see creationist castles built of poo, creationiosts see evolutionist castles built of pooh

Thats called perspective, your rant held no perspective, you made your position the only correct perspective.

Thats my issue, Hope thats understood

as for the mod who moved it, they were wrong, you were ranting at others who have a different opinion to you yourself

Hmm should I feel bad that I wanted to see a giant poop castle?
