I really, really want to know where all the Philosophy Defenders disappear off to when some loon comes in hear screaming about souls when IT'S THE EXACT SAME ARGUMENT as the "Hard Problem of Consciousness" that fall over themselves to defend the honor of like they caught it in the hayloft with one of the neighbor boys.

The stupidity of his utterances were annoying in the extreme. What was the cause of his banning however?

He was a sock.

But his utterances were stupid only in tone, not in message, or at least not more so then stuff we're browbeaten into taking as super serious philosophy.

Again "dA bAbY JEEZUS PUT A SOUL IN US and you can't prove otherewise!!" is exactly the same thing as the "Hard Problem of Consciousness" on an intellectual level. It's not better just because it isn't worded as "Latin word Latin word as said by the respected philosophizer the 3rd Earl of Bumblefart..."

Ricardo asked for his account to be deactivated. Then he started another one with the name Cris, which has been banned because multiple accounts are not permitted. He could still ask for the original one to be reactivated, but I doubt he will.
