Description

This podcast is about the many ideas in the world of philosophy, psychology, and spirituality that are popularized by our society and culture through books, movies (Blade Runner, The Matrix), TV shows (Rick and Morty, Westworld), and the public figures all around us.
Insightful ideas are everywhere and I'll be taking a deeper dive into those ideas presented to us in cultural and society. In working to understand those ideas, I don’t mean just understanding, instead, applying various insights to our lives. Even if you disagree with various ideas in society, there’s always something to learn from them and be applied to your everyday life. This podcast will take you on the journey into the deeper ideas of philosophy, spirituality, and psychology while giving you just a touch of helpful existential dread! Tune in.

Morality exists. And it will continue to exists. That's the reality we face. Is it subjective? Is it objective? It doesn't matter, as the story of morality will continue to provide justification, purpose, meaning, insight, and a uniting force for groups of people to live by that's the point....maybe.

Today we discuss some insights from Naval Ravikant. As we look to understand who we should surround ourselves with, you’ve probably encountered the phrase: “you’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” But what principles should those five people hold? What are you the average of? Let’s try to examine these questions.

Is Morality Objective?

Is Morality Objective?

2019-10-0300:29:10

This is essentially a post-debate solo discussion about morality. Is morality objective or subjective? I wanted to explain my points more here. However, I'm still not completely happy with how I presented it, so I'm open to your thoughts. I wanted to post it anyway because I think it has some value. As always thanks for listening.

In today's episode, I address Capturing Christianity's (Cameron Bertuzzi) video about, who created God? I contemplate the question, who created the universe? And maybe a better question, does the universe even need a cause? Addressing some points made by the cosmological argument. Maybe something always existed. Check out the end of the podcast where I put forward a more abstract explanation.
