With all due respect to Isa's children, I thought getting a globe for Christmas was one of the best things I ever got. I played with it for a long time, memorizing all the different countries, charting out voyages and wondering what dot of an island I wanted to live in.

I don't understand all this emphasis on rationality to define personhood. Maybe there's some special RC-only definition of it that is being used here (the RCC tends to have its own way of talking that is inscrutable to those not with it), but it strikes me that this placing the rational capacity of man on some sort of pedestal whereby it forms the totality of what could described as "human"
Yes, the reductionism and determinism of the Scholastics have given us such lovely things as separation of chrismation from baptism and its redefinition into "confirmation," which in turn gave us the anabaptists and "believers baptism," along with withholding the eucharist from the young and mentally infirm.  It also contributed to its mandated celibacy and all the problems that came with that: the loss of reason was seen as very dangerous, even for a moment (and those who pursued this line of "reasoning" shuddered at the thought of lovemaking lasting any longer than the moment it took to deposit semen in its "natural and rational" end).
It's part of the whole root rot of natural law taken over from the Stoicism of the Roman, particularly Latin, pagan aristocracy.

has dangerous or at least disconcerting consequences. After all, isn't it by reference to some imagined "age of reason" (I think it's about 7 or 8 years old, right?) that they deny the life-giving body and blood of our Savior Jesus Christ to their own children? As though there is some magic switch that is flipped at 7 or 8...if that's the case, then where is the line between the "rational" animal and the irrational? I have certainly met more than my fair share of people who hold down jobs, publish in academic journals, and are generally successful in life and much, much older than 7 or 8, and yet seem to me to be completely irrational in many ways. Can I kill them because they may not in fact be people according to the almighty "rational being" standard?
papist will take out his Vatican approved hair splinter to deflect his presuppositions from reaching their rational conclusion.
Again, there is no connection here, as we do not say that the ability to reason makes one a person. We say that the natural potential for reason makes one a person.


So I guess we can't trash the old lab tops, given the natural potential for reason in artificial intelligence makes them a person.

Izzy
who?
are you not reading the thread?
Yep.  And unlike some Roll Eyes, I am understanding it as well.
And as for reductionism, nope, we are not reductistic. You are, Izzy.
who?
You are the existentialist, who denies that there is such a thing as human nature.

you are too busy imagining what something can be rather than paying attention to what it is that you don't know what existentialism is nor reductionism.  But then a fish doesn't know it is wet.
This reduces man to nothing more than a material object.
Like I said, you don't have a clue.
If you're recommending it, I know where it goes:

Yes, in my view the potential for reason is there, but defect or injury may be prohibiting the person from actualizing that potential. Yet, the potential remains, and consequently, the dignity of that person remains.

I have a bit of trouble understanding how the potential can still be there, it seems like you are separating the potential from the infirmity, although the infirmity is precisely attacking the potential. How can the potential still exist? It seems downright contradictory or at least confusing to me. Also, just for kicks. Evolution leads to certain species becoming more and more intelligent, and it is very possible that the great apes will someday exhibit intelligence on the level of humans. Would you say that we should not murder great apes since technically they have the potential to become like humans are because of evolution?

Alas, the scholastic debates continue ad aburdum. The focus should be on spirituality. You will never be able to tie down what 'person' is because personality is a mystery. That is why Gautama Buddha refused to answer on the question. Such philosophizing is profitless...

Wow, amartin. That's deep, maaaaaaaaaaaan. Groovy.

Isa...all of Papist's attempts to give you a nickname has got me wondering: Are there diminutive versions of names in Arabic? I have known Mohameds who go by "Mo", but I mean more like how in Russian Dimitry becomes "Dimka", Alexander "Sasha" (I never got an explanation for that one in my 6-7 years of Russian study...), Vladimir "Vova", etc.

Just going from the names of people I know from church, it seems unlikely. There would of course be theological problems in calling Nabil "Nabi" or Maria "Mari"...

No connection there. We recognize all human beings as persons, becuase they all have the potential for reason, even if they cannot at a given moment actualize that potential. Thus, children, injured persons, persons with mental diseases, etc. are all still persons.

What is required for "reason" though?  It seems to me that many animals act with a great deal of reason, often in ways far superior to most humans.

Acts 10:13

Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)



13And there came a voice to him: Arise, Peter; kill and eat.

Christians are not trapped by the old law anymore. If you don't want to eat pork, no one will force you to, but Christians are neither Talmudic Jews, nor Muslims. Christ set us free.

The Acts of the Apostles were written by Luke who was the personal secretary of Saul of Tarsus. In reality, its all mostly about Saul and not the other Apostles. I do not trust what that book says about the Holy Rock Simon bar Jonas.

Who is that? I am not aware of any reverends after the great apostasy occured.

Lol wow. What cult is this? Can you link me to the website please? I would like to join them...

Murder is the killing of a person. Dogs aren't persons.
What is a "person"?
A being with a rational nature.

Does that include the mentally disabled?

Absolutely. Many mentally disabled persons are far more rational than the mentally-abled, from the real, spiritual point of view.

Wow, amartin. That's deep, maaaaaaaaaaaan. Groovy.

Isa...all of Papist's attempts to give you a nickname has got me wondering: Are there diminutive versions of names in Arabic? I have known Mohameds who go by "Mo", but I mean more like how in Russian Dimitry becomes "Dimka", Alexander "Sasha" (I never got an explanation for that one in my 6-7 years of Russian study...), Vladimir "Vova", etc.

Just going from the names of people I know from church, it seems unlikely. There would of course be theological problems in calling Nabil "Nabi" or Maria "Mari"...

(Eh, why not...this thread can't get more off topic, right?)



Folks, I am locking this thread until further notice as there are couple of issues that I plan to discuss with the moderator team. Second Chance
