Masturbatory Metaphysics
So I'm reading all the interesting threads we have around here on god and free will and morality and whatnot and I got to thinking (never a good thing). What if there was an oracle who could definitively tell me with certainty whether there was a god or not, whether there's a soul or not, whether there is free will or not, whether there's an afterlife or not, whether there's a heaven and hell or not, whether I am nothing more than a figment of my imagination or not, etc. Would any of that knowledge influence my personal behavior or actions and I come to the conclusion that it would not. That knowledge has no practical implications for me. It has no influence on me. It is nothing more than metaphysical masturbation spilling seed into the wind like a dandelion on a summer day. It is moot.

All metaphysics is masturbatory Drinking Beverage

The obvious question here is... How would you know to trust the oracle?

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

You can't. You assume it for the sake of the gedankenexperiment.

Thread title is redundant, not to mention repetitive.

The words of the prophets: from subway walls and concert halls, to nothing more that cum on the wind. My future as a prophet is looking... pornographic.

Let's not forget banal and inane and trite.
