Episode Info: Question 1: [2:45] – “I am currently into the ‘autopsy’ of the new-testament, and doing it for a decent amount of time, but I doubt that I can ever say ‘it is finished.’ Today, I firmly think that Christianity is a brilliantly crafted artificial religion, created only to deliver a pure self-building, individualist philosophy, without the constraint of the IQ threshold. I had the opportunity to discuss some of the results with some great thinkers, but since it is a highly abstract topic, it requires a very experienced critic.”“So my specific (3) questions: 1. What do you think about the philosophical role of the concept of afterlife and the initial sin? 2. Do you think, that there is a way to somehow merge the current path of Atheism and the self-conscious Christianity, as a religion? 3. What can we do to overcome the IQ threshold of philosophical thinking, to reach all layers of society?"Question 2: [46:45] – “An old friend of mine has been on a self-destructive path for the better part of a decade, with no signs of stopping.

Do you think there is any way to avoid being dragged into the main conflict by choosing this route, or will I inevitably be sucked into the gravity well? By extension, do you think that there is any merit in my friend attempting to intervene at all?”Question 3: [1:20:32] – “I engage in conversations with people with different views/beliefs/opinions on a fairly regular basis (though not nearly as much as Stefan). My dad, for example, believes that some government involvement in the free market is necessary and he always uses Rockefeller as an example of a greedy "robber baron" who used underhanded tactics to eliminate his competitors without the aid of government. I still can't seem to be able to explain to him how government intervention is bad, even though it seems like such an obvious, simple matter to me.”Question 4: [2:08:47] – “I dislike children. I often don't like being in the same room as children as they genuinely annoy me. I really don't like being around toddlers and babies and I never offer to hold or console them. Do you have any advice to work through and get past this personality flaw?Read more »
