To summarize my philosophy I would use a quote. "Nothing be good nor bad but thinking makes it so" Thats one of the most profound and easily understood axioms of our lives.

What have you, my good friends, deserv'd at the hands of

Guildenstern:
Prison, my lord?

Hamlet:
Denmark's a prison.

Rosencrantz:
Then is the world one.

Hamlet:
A goodly one, in which there are many confines, wards, and
dungeons, Denmark being one o' th' worst.

Rosencrantz:
We think not so, my lord.

Hamlet:
Why then 'tis none to you; for there is nothing either good or
bad, but thinking makes it so. To me it is a prison.

And you seem to be confident enough in your accumulated knowledge and decision making process to determine what is good and what is evil.


What makes you think it is so difficult to differentiate between good and evil?

Could I possibly have some examples of what made Crowley the most satanist(?) and evil man in history?


Surely I do not need to outline to you the wicked acts of this evil man, after all he is your hero no?

He was a 33rd degree mason who raped young boys for pleasure, even sacrificed children and babies in the name of satanic rituals. It is said that During a 1921 ritual, he induced a male goat to copulate with his mistress, then slit the animal's throat at the moment of orgasm.

Would you conceive of such acts as good? I certainly hope you don't.

@Ding an Sich,
Hi all,

To live and learn, to toss and turn
To dance and laugh and cry
To say hello to everything
And wave it all goodbye
To grow and reap, to rise from sleep
To dream, to scream, to fly
To be as me, to always see
Then settle down...and die.

Mark...

Then Crowley said to his mistress, "You see? I told you this magick stuff was only kidding."

Because metaphysical questions cannot currently be answered by man.

I wouldn't call him my hero, but I happen to agree with his simple philosophy.

Although rather imaginative, I heard the Pope does the same stuff, as do the members of the Bohemian Grove club, and the Montauk Project. Accepting wild stories as fact does not an evil man make.

Please spare me the patronizing chiding. How are you so positive that your moral compass is pointing the exact direction? Nothing but arrogance.

Demagogues who preaches good, will often commit immense evil

Medical drugs designed to do good, can often have really bad sideeffects, back in the 70-80'ies babies were born without arms because of the painkiller drug for pregnants.

GW Buch promised to protect us, but only caused more harm in the process.

Nobel invetor of dynamite with good intentions wanted it to end all wars, when it only enhanced the effect of war.

...so year, good and evil isn't always clearly defined.

@Soul Brother,
I find that, when all is said and done, ethics tends to be what is most essential to the philosophical mind. Personally, I believe that it is the intentions one has which determine the rightness/wrongness of their behavior. Of course, this makes it difficult to judge from an objective standpoint, but this series of quotes gives an excellent example:

apehead;169075 wrote:
That's easy. Take it away, Al!

"Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law" - Aleister Crowley


then,

Soul Brother;169088 wrote:
Wow, you seem to have staunch admiration toward the most satanist and most evil man in history.


It seems to me that the intention of apehead is to state his general philosophy in an enlightening manner. Evident by the phrase "take it away, Al!"

It also seems to be that the intention of Soul Brother's comment is solely to tear down the prior commenter. I see no other way, within the context of the thread, to interpret his comment.

Regardless of whether or not A. Crowley rapes young boys or engages in bestiality, I have a very hard time believing apehead's quote advocated such behavior.

Which behavior has the purer intentions? This is my philosophy in a nutshell. Smile
