Feel me now? If not, research those subjects some, and once having done that, return and talk to me about judgement and perception...... maybe someone
in some other multiverse thinks your identity did the same
I never cease to be amazed at how irrational some people can be.
So, I should begin my reasoning from this premise: that multiverses exist - an irrational, improbable, impractical, speculation of a small number of
physicists. And from this unlikely starting point, I should base my moral judgements?
WOW! That is spectacularly unreasonable, and actually a little creepy.
Have I put it in terms, yet, where you understand my point of view? And please respond, for I absolutely do not accept nor tolerate child molesters or
murderers or torturerers of humanity or any other form of life, and if you do not answer, that is an answer unto itself...
So then, I guess I'm not understanding you. Forget multiverses; they're an unprovable assumption; '___' trips will never get us any closer to
proving it. If, perhaps, one day, it's scientifically proven, I'll take it into account. But till then, it's SCIENCE FICTION, and no rational
person with their reason intact should admit this speculation into their moral reasoning.
Also, there is still a contradiction in what said. If you do not approve of con-artists, molesters, or racists, then you are in effect judging that
behavior - and the people who committed it. Furthermore, we can't exactly do nothing about it. To say "oh, in another multiverse you may have done
the same thing" is the most outlandish and frankly insane reasoning one could make in such a situation. Most people are aware of the laws; the
murderer and molester understood that by engaging in this activity, they were deciding
on a future course of damaging behavior. Did they
properly consider the consequences? Both for themselves, and in particular, for their victim? Or were they selfishly over-weighing their own
This thread isn't about free will so I don't want to derail it any further. But society acknowledges - and so does neuroscience - that people have
the power to choose what to think about. Barring a psychotic episode, the murderer was fully able to remind himself and reign himself in before he
murdered; same with the child molester C.W Ladbeater.
