Sometimes listening to JP is tough man. Reality can be a bitch.
You know, I clicked on one video on Youtube about him the other day, ONE!
And now half my fucking Youtube feed is flooded by this guy.
Bwahahahah! JP will consume EVERYTHING....
Pseudo intellectual gerrymandered to suit a conservative narriative. He' big time hit and miss and loved by mental hot messes.
If you're looking for free will thinkers read Shoepenhaur or at least Kant ya looser
True philosophers aren't compromised by the drama of current bi-partisan thinkings ofnthis and that.
Be quiet Berg, Men are speaking.
Haha you call yourself a man? I call you an over confident juvenile imp. Go back to jerking off in ma's basement to hentai.
There is an undercurrent of GAWD in a lot of his talks that I don't like. In this video he says, "there is a moral order built into human beings" and he mentions "the soul" and other fluffy, religious mumbo jumbo. That doesn't mean he doesn't have anything important to say, but hearing those little seeds irks me.
Would it help if everyone changed the word God for Mr Sprinkles?
Or changed the word bible for smooth songs from the 80's?
I'm not a fan of the quaran personally. Yet it doesn't make me cringe when there are discussions and references to it. I even managed to cherry pick a value or two from it.
Like any book, you don't have to take in any of it. It doesn't mean there isn't one or two good lessons in there.
Take what is useful. Discard what is useless.
He's a philosopher who philosophizes on topics. If all of your thought is primed with an undercurrent of Loving Sky Fairy is Judging Us, then it gets a bit foolish. I am wholly familiar with the Bible, and I can say with confidence probably moreso than most people here on SpikedNation...so that's not the problem. The problem is assuming there is a God in charge with absolutely no evidence in favor of it while demanding evidence on all other fronts.
To those who take your position Peterson says just substitute "the unknown" for "God" and both sides can move forward constructively.

You were a "devout" Christian once, right?
It's typical for the newborn atheist to swing hard the other side so any talk of god irks them.
Take the middle ground, don't think you know the answer because no one does. Otherwise, you'll just end up creating a new dogma for yourself.
Yet in the same talk he clearly identifies the "worst aspects of religious dogma" as being particularly bad and frightening in their dark application to a nihilistic philosophy - just as bad as when they pervert Chrisitanity. It's by porting the poison of religious dogma into the postmodern philosophy that they manage to make it nihilistic and totalitarian at the same time. Ideologies are parasites on the substructures of religious principles. He's talking about applying a critical mind to burn away what you can no longer deny is untrue while continuing on to work and improve that which seems to endure regardless of what we learn about the material world.
It's really hard to do this, even in private, because it's embarrassing, sometimes humiliating, and it really hurts a lot. Whatever you think of this film and this particular brand of evangelical Christianity, the following scenes depict a man having his "soul" burned away and reconstructed in real time in front of a crowd of people. For me this is gut-wrenching to watch, but there's something hyper-real about this kind of transformation - Peterson would like us to have updated, modern versions of this for people who are suffering like Billy Bob in these scenes (Sam Harris as well). I would have cut the radio dude out of the second scene - makes it more hokey than it already is:
You're a fan of zome super duper secret gnostic belief called "THE QUARAN?" wow sounds so esoteric that Ive never heard of it.
