"But so in ancient world we we cannot understand it without mentioning religion but we also cannot understand that without mentioning sophy and you are mentioning that our our hero of the of the story echoes. He lived at the same time as plato and aristotle and and you also have the scenes in your book where where these philosophers appear so would be exciting. You maybe share a little bit about those Those storylines in in the book before olympic games. Cenovate thirty on just Too which was the blaze were. Lotto's gymnasium was located on. They had them exhibition resting much. First alex against the abuse and then what was one of spectators and then he wanted to challenge alex unbuckle. He had a history of of competing in investing in infinite. Nothing olympic games but fee of this highly respected games in increase. So he was in real life also released. Strong restaurant denied. He was already sixty Sixty three years old so they they are they are having frosting matz with Afterwards having some wine. And i'm talking. I didn't bring any new philosophy of some kind of maine lies about his thinking. And then there's so so obvious double in young who'd think there are dates of seventeen or sixteen elected sixty couple of couple of years older than On spending about a pin. Im seven days long. Local mocha pick festival in offense. They're spending like going just the other an underground With wine about philosophy and so roaches or encounters with those two big names. And yeah you mentioned that. You didn't want to go into detail about the philosophy of plato aristotle. But i think it's quite a nice way of kind of tying in those historical figures which brings to the question that i didn't remember to ask yet was that did you have a character. All my historical character dot you draw inspiration from when you are building your your character aliko stories. He like a combination of different stories and sources. Or how how did you. How did he come to be as he is. He's for cirque combination of of different ideas. That are there must be bark of me. Thinking there is part of fiction My biggest hero in Cup all the up. His character person. I would say i have copied a face. He's characters he used in east books. So it's gonna fly combination of these three things. Yeah do we have any any stories that we have available about the athletes of those times. Do we have any sources about we know generally about sports than we know generally about the olympics but do we have any in his threes of those athletes. Who actually doing we do. Have something mostly bow. Stories out you know for some kremlin of millo. lexi's time a little bit cleaner. Howdy highly. it was like the cow in his shoulder and carried it for. I don't know thin stadiums and then drinking litres of wine after up on a leave some some rocks which sweater the weight of seven men at the start being reimbursing the time aura results in that time so interesting to compare results of Weekend we can do it just like fun. Sixers really absolute up spot At the start dates of or eight years something continued to adults for the mandela for fifty years old and For example tennessee. Something about pope sparked story about the guinness. He was a boxer and then also doing bankrupt and bunker weakened call. It's kind of a free fight. Which bills have the time. So he won't doing he sport cab your own or over. The only the big he had was due at one thousand four hundred together so if fast it's If he had liked wendy years don't carrier he had only hit the seventh beat the rockies three year so that was some kind of picture how how much they look a beating so totally professional athletes. Who train and then. They just pat time hopefully folk going for one competition to other. We must remember governor blames. Our cars drives up to use shapes.

"plato aristotle" Discussed on Psychedelic Salon
"To the originals or even listen to them here in the Psychedelic Sean. Right now I'm going to play a selection for for you of a Timothy leary. Talk from my podcast number. One seventy five which is titled the Intelligent Use of Psychedelic drugs and just north of Athens. Place go elusive and you. Well no no. The miseries for hundreds and hundreds of years re Practice Fair Air Plato Aristotle. Most of those great philosopher's went through initiatives there and recently Drug Ecology and scholars like Robert. Gordon Watson in later told us that the key to the mysteries was a ceremonial plant which is probably related to LSD. Now we popped up a we popped up through out history in France the Sheen's Baudelaire Gautier we popped up in England. Wordsworth Earth Colorado NICI nature has over there in Germany. You know he was very sickly this assay. When you went to see Nicci it was like going into a drugstore? I wonder why all those crazy ideas. Now you're never gonna read about the history you never gonna read about the history of brain exploration in the textbooks in institutions like this tax supported run by academics politicians to young people serenely and productively. Stupid the you have.
"plato aristotle" Discussed on Talk Nerdy
"Maybe it doesn't right or maybe you know when you're a student so there's some randomness business and who gets the jobs and so forth but then when they've had their success they that's what they wanna do like this far too many professors who just keep writing their PhD thesis over over and over again for their whole lives and it's it's horrible Yeah No. That's that's that's there. You know ringing changes on that little thing and there there was a poignant moment actually in the movie particle fever. This is a documentary about particle physics these days and it came out at the right time because the large Hadron collider had just turned on we found the higgs bows on but physicists were really hoping and expecting to find more than just the higgs boats on when the large Hadron collider turn on and they have not and the fact that even now they have not is pretty begins to make us question what we're doing but five have years ago still like well when we we haven't found yet but there was this moment in the movie where two senior physicists are talking to each other and they were both people who had worked on super symmetry their whole lives super symmetry the idea that came along in the early nineteen seventies and it's now the two thousand teens okay no evidence for it has been found but still very very popular and one of them said like if we don't find super symmetry like how will you feel and the guy said now just work on something else was like no my career will have been waste my whole life life as a physicist will have been entirely wasted enterprise. How sad to view it that way. You know that like yes. Sometimes we have have a hypothesis that seems tenable and we spend a lot of time on it. I mean this is the case for people in their daily lives even if they're not scientists ientist you know you have a relationship for example and your hypothesis is that the two of you are going to really make it work and stick it out and in my view is that a successful relationship is one that begins is full of love is full of you know memories whether it ends or not has has nothing to do with the success of the relationship. If anything I think the very successful relationships end when they should end as opposed to like keeping ongoing wait but it's so sad to me when people have that perspective that because something didn't come to fruition in whatever standard that they've arbitrarily Charlie set to be like success that everything was a waste. It's like they just have to throw it all away. It's a tough one because we're in a realm of physics physics where the time scales our law right you know takes decades in between new particle accelerators takes decades for theories to be developed. Human human careers are measured in decades. That's it right so it's very very possible to spend your entire life doing an idea that doesn't work out and so it's a very good question. You know should you you. Try diversify your portfolio. She worked on a little bit of this little bit of that thinking. Something's GonNa work out or should you say like no. I think this is the most likely thing I'm going to bet all the chips. I'M GONNA push all in yeah because that's the thing that you know that guy who spent his whole life or I guess they both did on super symmetry. They may go down in history as the guy who worked on that one thing that didn't and ended up working out but still there in the history books. Do you guys take when you like. have an undergraduate. Physics Department is there a history and systems of physics certainly not physicist physicist. Don't WanNa hear about their own history. That's such an important right history because it's way easier to make up a fake history where everything is logical in in perfect rather than the messy reality of it all. That's so sad to do so much research for this book on the history on mechanics. Oh my gosh can we like can can we start some sort of petition to learn about history programs for you know history and philosophy of science sometimes right yeah but that goes back to that silo the problem it wasn't the physicists are taking those classes yeah yeah. That's a bummer like it. Just one required course where it's like. I want to learn how I know. The things as I now know you know this is a massive part of psychology. Everybody has to study Freud even if they think Freud is a total crock of shit because they know that in in the time when Freud did what he did it was a reaction to act and it led to why this is how we started to change the way that we view things. It's it's so important to understand that yeah and philosophy also you study Plato Aristotle Rate Even today but physics the opposite like we tell ourselves the story Einstein just just didn't understand quantum mechanics and that's completely false Einsteinian stood quantum mechanics better than anybody else right but he had objections to it which just never quite fulfilled and there's a lot Komo stories in the real history that are fascinating but visit you know to be fair. There's a lot to get into little young. People's brains the physics right so I would love it if they knew more about the history but I get why they don't carve out time for yeah. I mean and you know I'm again looking back at kind. If the curriculum for me at my undergraduate I was a psych major but as a philosophy minor so that helps those able to take like philosophy of Natural Sciences Philosophy Vive psychology but even in my history and systems of psychology course basically it was a basic rundown. These are the behaviorists. These are the analysts. These are the whatever like therapy was a tiny portion because that's only clinical like there's so much other stuff and then in graduate school. I was my history and systems class was much more drilled down into a applied history and systems and I could definitely see there being just one fundamental you know these are the basics you know this was Newtonian Indian or pre Newtonian and then we've got Newtonian and now we're moving into you know relativity moving into quantum late just a basic because also one of the things that I've talked to a lot of physicists about about is that they feel like kids. Don't get excited about physics early enough because they're stuck on like the basic mechanics early in their training and if you took a class that surveyed all the cool stuff early you might go okay. I know I have to get through this stuff. Some people are like I love of Newtonian physics and I want to focus my career on it but other people are like and then they lose interest in they might even leave the program which is a bummer right so kind of giving a little taste of the of the weird that it's a little bit difficult to do because there's no prerequisites you feeling wondering it down but I you know I I think at the very least I think Caltech actually does this. You know have a have a course where all the first year students are required to take it and every week a new faculty member comes in talks about the research coach the lease ideal okay there is a little carrot pulling me for like you don't have to write some thirty page paper about the outcomes as of you know. Blah Blah if you don't understand it yet but just listen to somebody talking about what they do something cool at the end of it yeah. I think it's actually much more important at the high school level right now at the college level. If someone is an undergraduate physics major then okay teaching Newtonian mechanics work your way up through e n and quantum mechanics etc but if you're a high school student WHO's taking physics most of those people knocked to become professional physicist linked the what you teach high school students in physics or even what you teach non non physics majors in college doesn't need to be a watered down version of what he teaches physics majors. They're skip right to relativity and quantum mechanics and the big bang like you know. Let them have the good stuff why not it's just as true justice real more contemporary and as always. I agree. I think that the contextualized that you know for the non majors for example like guy used to teach a non majors anatomy and physiology class like nursing and kinesiology students and we would contextual is it in terms of injury and in terms of functional mechanics canucks instead of just like building block stuff and they liked that because there's like news you could use. I actually have an ex boyfriend who is much older and he went to to Cornell and told me that he took physics for poets from Carl Sagan very very good yeah so like the he he wasn't a physics major classics major but being able to take a course like that and at least get a taste of it. What a cool idea. I would love to see anymore multidisciplinary stuff like that idea that the way that we teach history major's physics is by having them do simple inclined planes in pendulum just makes makes me crazy like they've they'll go through forget about the Big Bang. They will never have never heard of entropy right because it just didn't. They don't get that far because you just take the physics curriculum in your water down. It's it's insane. It's a yeah it's absolutely you have to kind of match the mechanics with the with the application. I loved the idea you telling the human side of the story even physicists able we don't have time to delve into history but in a in physics for historians than the perfectly good reason and to have a lot of history in there well take a note from like the successful science writers out there right. We know that if you don't tell a story if there are no characters people are going to tune out and so what a smart way to just S- matter that in literally just to keep Interest Chris tells me this yeah very like I like I said I like writing hundred thousand word books that we've never had the name of a person in there could get away with it apparently in fact in this book Chapter Eight like right in the middle of the book there is I wrote in the form of a platonic dialogue between two characters like there's the the daughter who was a philosopher who has been studying the foundations of quantum mechanics and her father who is a grumpy old physicist. She's like why are you doing this. Why why are we bothering all these philosophical questions and it was a way for me a to put the objections to the many worlds interpretation which is what I pushing in the book into the mouth of someone who is respectable person who knows their stuff so I I love that okay so hold onto the many worlds repetition because we're gonNA come back to that. I want to take a really quick break to thank the sponsor of this week's episode. We'll be right back with Sean Carroll girl this week. I WanNa thank calm for their continued support of talk nerdy. Now I WANNA talk to you a little bit about sleep and how the Calm Hall Map helps me.
"plato aristotle" Discussed on Trailer Junkies Podcast
"You know, I don't want to so you're not an end get you, you're not into the marvel cinematic universe. All right. Thank you. Thank you. So I four say Jimmy to watch all of the marvel we didn't do this week, by the way. Nice to watch it like chronologically rather than when it like. Yeah. Rather than when they actually came out, we'll go rather than the release, you want to do the actual chronological, but I felt like I need to make conscious decisions d at some point. I think you know, in Jan, you know, just make a nears resolution or you could start it now. And by you know by twenty two end of twenty twenty you will have watched all of the marvel movies in. So then. So can I kind of answer your question there? Ted or your reply to your statement regarding gopher Arnold, in a cabin in the woods or whatever. So, my opinion is that he's not the Terminator who. And that instead, that's the guy that he was modeled that the Terminator was modeled after and it's actually, the human dude that well, yeah, it's like the human guy that his based on that the Terminator's look is based on. Right. So then that's kind of where they got the mold in a sense, was this guy and then somehow they're going to double up the guy. I don't even know. I'm just pulling this. But it just riffing off. Yeah. They're just gonna double up the guy screenwriting here. It's great to like impersonate, the Terminator, two freak out the other terminators, something even though he's like the human version that the Terminator was modeled after. Silence. I like the sell you know, hey, if that turns out to be the story, then you and James Cameron have a mind meld going. Oh man. I love it. I love it. I know. Well that's an that's through Spock. Right. So back, what do you what do you think? This is the this is the most like feminine. This feels like a post metoo Terminator. We have a we have a grace of extra MacKenzie Davis. Everything she does is such a powerful character. She has such a powerful presence. You know, I loved halted catch fire, which is a TNT series short lived, I think, but she has such a presence in power that. It's a great space to play against Linda Hamilton. Which is like, the, the Uber female prototype of hero. You know, do you feel like this is a is something that kind of Parkin's back to a spay? Well, it harkens back to space and it revisits hero with this new female heroine. I guess I, I mean, I think it'll be interesting to see what they do with. Sarcomas. Cartland Hamilton's Carter. I think she did that pretty bought us to salt went, so how, how far can it guy in this different ability? Yeah. Just been read interested to see what they do with the current of the end. I think that's to me where it gets. The most interesting is that you can show them as being ready, powerful independent as leading the way and equals, I suppose, but, but it's what you do with them the, to me, rainy, monsters. I'm right. So I think the fact that, that full grabbed it is exciting. It's really great that every needing the way in that respect. Yeah. Jury's out with a guy. What I love about this teasers that well for one, they love their big truck chases. You know. But the second thing though is MacKenzie Davis when it starts its teased almost as though it's the beginning of a young Linda Hamilton. So you're not sure where in the time line. And then you see kind of that abrasion on the skin, and you're like, well, what's that? And then all of a sudden, obviously here comes Linda Hamilton kicking ass like she always does. And then you're like, okay, cool. I see where this is going now. So you are bringing back a lot of a lot of the old characters old actors into the into the fray. And the MacKenzie Davis character isn't strictly just a young Sarah Connor, like that, that I first few seconds. Try and lead you to believe at least in my opinion. Yeah. Definitely. Yeah. You didn't know where we were. Exactly. And that's the beauty of the Terminator's, I think just in general, is it could be at any point from nineteen eighty three to two thousand. Because they always come back within that window of time. Right. Can I ask what why why is it could a teaser? Am I missing to naked? A teaser is because to me that trailer. It's doesn't need to have the web teaser in it. I couldn't agree with. I couldn't agree more. Yeah. Yeah. I think I think trailer junkies podcast is definitely in tune with the way or talking back in the green mentioned like this is called the teaser trailer. And it's emblazoned on everything they put out. But to me, teaser trailer speaks more to a time line and to expectations as to actual content tax. So another words, they're just throwing out stuff to get you tease a fast few. Yeah. And a teaser trailer can have as much or as little exposition, and as, as your as the studio wants to give or feels like they need to give and because this is such an iconic franchise. They kind of need to plant the stake in the ground and kind of a stab all the characters that are going to be in where we are in the linear. Especially when we're doing a sequel to something that is going to throw out the last two to three movies three movies put us into place where we're not a prequel not a sequel were intricate that it's like in the in the time line of the first movies of the franchise, we're going to go in the middle of it and just interject ourselves in there. And I think that continue with what Beck was saying, though. So to say, like why is considered a teaser, or whatever isn't saying, teaser trailer like redundant though, because I mean, isn't that the point of a trailer is teased? The movie. Yes. So then it's like well that looks cool. I'm gonna go see that regardless if there's exposition, content and time line. I mean you just see a bunch of cool scenes and some trailers, I mean, they do kind of follow a linear path that you that, that appear to be linear and other trailers, just, just quick jump cuts all over the place. You have no idea what they are. But they're not considered a teaser, you know. And so. Then decide whether or not you're gonna go see the movie based on the trailer that came out Eck when you were cutting trailers, or trailer city have cut have you been told that this is it might be a language thing might be an industry. L A industry versus London industry. But have you been focused on sells like when we focus on something we'll say, like we need the kids sell on this. We need the, the comedy cell or who's the audience. Yeah. Like who's the audience? Right. And like with, with reissues it's kind of a different thing. But what does this hit you as a specific cell? Yeah. So you will ways established from the distributor of the film maker, I'm taking a watt that as what we know you have to be on the same page with your demographic. And so what my demographic is what that demographic is may defer. But I have to be on that page pretty much. We always stopped, not any on. Otherwise, you'll end up building something for the wrong market in. Coming start again. So I think that's quite an important things stopped radio is who is this, who's the cell? Yeah. Definitely. And I think that I think the, the, the my issue with that is that it becomes this internal dialogue, and they say this is not consumer facing like we're not going to say that this is the female cell of this of this of this movie, but I think, in the internet world it kind of does a disservice to the, the trailer editor and won the trailer end the, the executives are all on the same page, but it goes out in the world. And then a fan boy picks it up. You know, like a fan by picks up something that was meant for the family sell their obviously, going to hate it, because it wasn't meant for them. You know, then you got these things where like these editors in Twitter sphere. People are like railing on, on specific trailers that were never meant intended for them as the audience. And then they say, well, this move is going to be horrible because look at what they put out his marketing for it. And when we're marketing in niches, they're seeing every. Anything because they love it so much. And then they take you know, they take these things that aren't intended for their viewing as the intention of the overall film. But we're just trying to win the demographic. And I guess that's why the online platform, maybe the industry in the online film, haven't quite caught up with each of the is that if that was going to be for TV spill all cinemas, bolts, or cinema trailer. That is very restricted places that you would play the within very restricted audiences. Very restricted times of day even. Yeah. And so you'd be much more likely that sent node incidentally, see them. Whereas now, online is disciple of the I'll say it's Matija see any kind of content for feature whereas before it would be much more controllable, is I love a tweet. I read this week about sonic, the hedgehog sonic, the hedgehog got pushed to February of next year, February twenty twenty because there is a huge backlash to the design of the actual edge hog and a tweet came across saying, like, I'm, I'm glad they're redoing the sonic. But I'm very sad that the people that complained about it aren't going to see the movie anyway. Well, and I think backing up to what we were talking about with the releases of older movies, you know, the Terminator twos. And so on. I mean really the reality is only the fan boys. We're going to go see those anyway, I mean, so you're not even I mean that's already who you're speaking to buy rereleasing it. Well, the fan boys and their children, if they're lucky enough to have them. Well, okay. Sure. But what I'm saying though is the driving force behind that is the fan. Boy, you're not gonna get somebody who's like, oh, maybe I'll go see that I never saw before that distributes public disagree, or the who have is behind the film. They will always be appetizing to, and you will instill aways. Come to me. It will try to house and say, look, we want to try and reach new people say, oh, okay. I live in hope. Okay. I mean, I suppose you need to because that's you know, you wanna make the most money possible, and you want the most, you know, the broadest audience. But, I mean, my opinion is if you haven't seen it by now you're probably not going to see it. You know what I mean? And if you have seen it, and you've loved it either through, like a home medium, whether that's DVD's VHS laser discs, back in the day and all that stuff. And you didn't have in. Maybe you were too young to go see it in the theater, and you're like, whoa, that's cool. I wanna go see in the theater now. I mean but it's still speaking to that fan. Boy audience. I have a feeling and that's where yeah, you're always going to get the fam- boys angry at you for some reason, you know because that's just what they are their families. You know, it's like when a new product comes out, you could have the greatest camera in the world. And then a new camera gets released and then all the people who love their cameras are like, oh, but it doesn't do like whatever video fail. I think you have to go all the way back to Plato Aristotle to say that, you know, the, the idea of the chair, you know, the idea that chair is perfect, and that when you send a craftsperson to make a chair that share that is in our world, and functioning as chair is never going to meet the conceptual space of chair, you know, so I think all what do you say fan? Boy, it kind of does a disservice to them that, that they are just like railing against things..
"plato aristotle" Discussed on Stuff To Blow Your Mind
"Sort of a host of competing theories that I would say aren't even always. Totally contradicting of one another this. They sort of partially overlap and partially contradict one another right. Yeah. There's not really a theory of everything per se, but like each one feels a little bit right? Like each theory is is kind of fondling the elephant, exactly. So a brief run through a few of the toppling. There's no way to explore all the theories of humor. But if you were the most commonly cited and most popular ones one would be the superiority theory, and this is propounded in some classical works like a in the works of Plato and Aristotle. This one is actually he's kinda nasty. But sometimes I guess humor is kinda nasty. It proposes that we laugh when we noticed someone is less fortunate than us in one way or another and the laughter comes from our feeling that we occupy a place of superiority, we sort of deployed as a form of scorn on somebody else and Plato in his Phillipus dialogue, which is discussing the nature of pleasure and different kinds of pleasure. Like why? Why pleasures of the mind might be superior to pleasures of the flesh Plato has Socrates claim that we laugh at people who do not recognize their own misfortune. For example, when people are stupid, but think themselves brilliant, or when people are ugly, but think themselves, very handsome, and I would say this clearly doesn't cover all types of humor. Like, you know, what about self deprecating humor when you can laugh at yourself? But there there's something there that is clearly present in some humor. Yeah. Well, you know when it comes to self deprecating humor and laughing at yourself. I think it does make sense that you consider our abilities to sometimes step outside of ourselves and see ourselves as a character in a story through the in infectious nature of narrative there, but then also in the way that we use theory of mind way too much to try and imagine how others see us. So maybe like if you're trying to roll with this theory, you'd say that self deprecating humor is almost win. We pretend that we are ourselves someone else and you step. Back, and you scorn a different version of yourself. Yeah. Basically late or you're just kind of imagining how scornful other people are being to you. Because of something you did or said or thought. Yeah. I mean, another thing I would just say that unless you're a horrible person. And maybe, you know, Plato Aristotle or in some ways, very smart, but also very horrible people unless you're really bad person..

"Wow. That's a that's an incredible. And that's a heavy weight on me. Responsibility. I don't know that I want that position. I'm not that sure of myself and my philosophy of my beliefs. I they're good for me. And I'm not sure they're going to work forever, buddy. So I'm thinking, that's a heavy responsibility. And then I think we'll Jerry was a really good book though. It was a really really good book. Well, I finally got to come to some peace with Jim by saying, well, it's not me. It's coach Lombardi I'm talking about Costa Mbarga principles and his philosophy and his belief. And then I think about it some more. Well, it really wasn't even coach Lombardi. It was Plato Aristotle was an ancient Greek that was the philosophy. So I got comfortable with myself that is awesome. Jerry Kramer's, my guest book. We're talking about is the Green Bay Packers diary instant replay. And I've told you the story million times I'll say it again right now, it was the first sports book I ever read as a kid, and it was just absolutely amazing. The book is timeless, and I could see where somebody like Bill point might even say, that's the reason I want to get into football that that book not only holds up today. Jerry was so far ahead of its time for you to talk about what was going on. And then you've got Lombardi your point is it's not about me. It's about Lombardi. It's even about Lombardi. It's about Aristotle. So I mean you, and I have also talked about this getting his approval. It was great. But getting his criticism can be pretty harsh. What was it like to get negative feedback from Vince Lombardi if very painful? Depending upon the where you were if you've never experienced it. And it was the first time it was the first time. But if you've been there awhile, and you're busting your pump trying to make things work, and you got like he got on my tail one day after a scrimmage goal-line scrimmage against our defense.

"plato aristotle" Discussed on The BreakPoint Podcast
"You can fast forward to the, you know, eighteenth and nineteenth century, and we can we we run into folks. Like, Charles, Darwin in Karl Marx and Frederick Nici. Maybe Sigmund Freud. These are also all people that have tried to create alternative worldviews to Christianity. And once again, we discover that the world the consequences of their ideas. Are much much worse than Christianity. You're absolutely right and Warren. This was the I think the the most difficult part of my book unimaginable derived, because I I wanted to read firsthand the works of mine comp and other terrible works the communist manifesto, the writings of Charles Darwin Sigmund. Freud the big the fab five as I call him beginning with Ludvig Feuerbach Feuerbach of courses famous people use the quote, all the time report is due otherwise. And they don't realize it was Feuerbach who originated at saying that God did not excuse me. Man did not make God. And she's me God did not make man in his image. Manmade got in there emerge. So God is this figments made in the really in the image of man and not the converse. And so when we look at that world, we can actually study it, and when you think about and you were you were alluding to this in the last sixty eight years, we can actually study countries societies political regimes were more than one half of the world's population turned its back on. In God in the last seventy years. We can study what what what is the legacy of those countries in those communities and those belief systems, and there's I can make it very clear classical racism existed before Christianity, and I had the time to get into this. In the book Plato Aristotle these were deeply racist individuals. We actually talk about the emergence of racism in classical antiquity, and then all the sudden Warren, it's fascinating. Because in the thirds excuse me in the fourth century racism begins to recede, and for a thousand years, there's not a single thinker. And I don't mean just in the Christian world, I mean, anywhere who has spouses racist ideology, but when is racism taken up again, it's taken up in exactly the time period. You just mentioned the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries where we have this atheist philosophy that provides the ethical framework for mass murder in my opinion. And we see people like Hitler and the Nazis these atheist regime. Seems who appear completely to love violence. They love murder they love imprison imprisoning people torturing people, and what do we see Hitler? He he he drank deeply from the will of nature. I mean, remember it was Hitler, presented Stalin and Mussalini with writings of Nietzsche. And we see that these again, what does that tell us worn? It's why what you do is so important. That's why this broadcast is. So important ideas matter. I mean what we're discussing and teaching in universities. What is being talked about in the in the in the marketplace today, these things are very important. They can be powerful. And so what do we see in the quote, unquote enlightenment? We see these atheist thinkers from the enlightenment, they take up these racist themes, again, based in of course, ethic a framework of ethical what they call scientism. So there's actually a scientific framework for mass murderer now and for racism things that now Theus are embarrassed about like, poly Genesis and whatnot. And we see that then all the sudden people. Like, Hitler and other Stalin, you you mouse, a tongue put the mass murderer in fill in the blank. They actually feel justified in license to do this based on their damaging philosophical and scientific beliefs. That's why this is so important this conversation that we're having today. Yeah. Well, I don't wanna go down too much of a side trail with this, Jeremiah. But I can't resist pointing out that you cite a book that that I have found very helpful. And that's a James Spiegel's book, the making of an atheist, and it's a book that doesn't get cited very much whatever I saw that. You had mentioned it in your book. I was I took special note, and one of the things that you say is that a lot of these people that we've mentioned that have, you know, have propagated these anti-christian ideologies, Marx and Hegel and others..

"They do not eat meals that you and I would enjoy and in fact, th they're they're notorious for the sort of simplicity of their fair. But when you move into the sphere of sports, it's a kind of exciting life that they lead, and it's a life of leisure that that the upper classes elsewhere in Greece envy, the Spartans for that's another thing. We have trouble with we admire Athens, but the Greeks generally admired Sparta much more than Athens. What would they admire about it? They just mired their pursuit of excellence in van marred their accomplishments on the battlefield. So when Pericles. In the funeral oration that through cities lays out that wants to make the case for Athens. The foil is always Sparta and the deciding factor, you know, the thing that decides that Athens is superior to Sparta is Athens wins on the battlefield you've got to that's the standard, and it's the accepted standard even in Athens. So the Spartans success on the battlefield is envied. Their leisure is envied. That's that's what everyone would like to have not to have to work their use of that leisure for horse racing for hunting that that is also admired and the the role of music in their lives. That is also admired the people in Greece. Who are most critical of the Spartans are people like Plato Aristotle who intimate that the Spartans raised their children like peace? Sts? But if you look at at the at the well to do throughout Greece throughout, you know, thought SOS, and fitness and so forth. What they admire is is this way of life, which of course, is based upon a very large subject population. No one in Greece. Feels any shame about enslaving other human beings. That's another thing. We have trouble getting our minds around it. It's it's just an accepted institution. Aristotle in his politics raises the question whether or not a lot of the people who are in practiced in slaved are worthy to be free men with the implication that perhaps a lot of the people who are free men are worthy to be enslaved. So he sets another kind of standard, but you've got to keep in mind. The philosophers are on the margins here the. Mainstream of people are proud of their domination of other people's mentioning that the other Greeks upper-class, Greeks and other city states admire the Spartans didn't some of them actually, send their kids to Spar negoti. Well, yes Xenophon did for example on Athenian. There wasn't a whole lot of that. And it may not have happened in the fifth century, it certainly happens in the fourth century because we begin hearing about it in the fourth century and the Spartans open up a bit in the fourth century because after the Peloponnesian war, which they win they established an empire throughout Greece. More or less in imitation of the empire that the Athenians had had and in establishing an empire, they have to they have to open themselves up to the larger world and that that is consistent with bringing people to Sparta and putting them through the Spartan ago gay one. Consequence of this. By the way, is our best information about Sparta comes in the fourth century when they're forced open up in this way in the writings of Xenophon Plato Aristotle..

"You. Yep. And so there's that view of things Tony wants facts. And a lot of folks have problems with someone who just wants facts, they say, oh, dude, you have to have faith. Why who says you have to have faith? I can't get over the idea that again. Creator would expect us to abandon. The need for proof, which is one of the very things that has made humans, but they are today. Science. Why abandon that? We're expected to just abandon it. So there's God saying, okay. Gonna give her all this ability to figure out about this planets, and how things work and how science works. But when it comes to understanding me, I want you to just have faith. I'm not gonna give you any proof doesn't that seem weird? And kind of conflict. Yes. Hi, doing Ralph. Hey, Bradley, Ralph good good. Jesus christ. No, he was a philosopher rally. He studied degree Plato Aristotle. He studied in Rome. The philosopher Cicero he studied that Rome was a big influence to Jesus. When he he he used to say from dust to dust when as far as the turn ity. And you know, that's very profound because this earth we are. Flings was created from the dust of the comments that went by for billions of years. And then the moisture the ice from the comets deposited on the earth created the the lakes, oceans and stuff. And when that spa kit in life formed tell you from dust the dust we came from the dust, and we'll go back into the ground is dust. And that's what Jesus said he didn't say anything about Evans or anything. He really didn't. He was a very naturalistic nature. You know, I mentioned mother nature and on your Facebook blog. The beatles. Mother nature's child or song. Okay. Paul did. Okay. Great song right song. Mother nature that that's you ruler earth's solar system. The comets. That's where we come from. Religion is a sidebar. It really this. This thousands of religions on this. Let me ask the question that a lot of folks would ask so okay. Where did the comments and all that stuff come from, well, the founding fathers, we're very profound. They said our creator now that makes more sense than a God, our creator, or which I believe is mother nature. It's Jesus also used to said, the the always was and always will be when he talked about the nature. Always was always will be that's quite a quite profound meaning forever and ever and ever and that stat is one of the mysteries now. Yes, the creator it probably is one. But is it a God? Well, it's just the word more of a philosophy. I think you know, one of his Jesus is. Most interesting thing did was the church and state decree that he said that. If you're going to be. A follower of me. And and study. My philosophy. You still have to pay taxes to Rome Rome has to has to be a state, and I have to be spirit, and that was a big divide where government is cannot be religious or it'll destroy it. Self cannot be you know, it has to be this. There is a divide for. For spiritual spirituality and then governmental, and he did that. That was quite a quite a thing. Church and state. Okay. I'm going to. Thank you very much. Thank..
