Nice red herring. I'm well-enough read-up on the Limbic system and it's responses, which, actually, in order of priority, tend to be Freeze, Flight, or Fight. And in that case, the Limbic Response sounds much more like impulse number 2 than impulse number 3. Number three has to involve either the Frontal Lobe -- reason acting above Freeze/Flight/Fight -- or else something ABOVE the Frontal Lobe.SEG wrote: ↑Sat May 04, 2019 6:39 amWhat's "telling me" would be my own intuition or sense that comes from within. It is an evolutionary sense like our Fight or Flight response.Og3 wrote: ↑Sat May 04, 2019 12:41 amYou acknowledge the validity of my shipboard example -- the two conflicting impulses, and the third thing that determined the right path -- in that case, discipline, self-restraint, and training. So in spite of that, are you denying that moral decisions involve two moral impulses and a third thing that tells you which to indulge?
But I won't bore you with the workings of the human brain, especially since it is a digression from our point...
So, what was your source for that? I'm thinking that it wasn't any serious Psychological or Psychiatric literature, was it?What is fight or flight response?
This is the body’s response to perceived threat or danger. During this reaction, certain hormones like adrenalin and cortisol are released, speeding the heart rate, slowing digestion, shunting blood flow to major muscle groups, and changing various other autonomic nervous functions, giving the body a burst of energy and strength.
See, SEG? That's what I mean by "poisoning the well." You're painting any conclusion except the one you favor as "Wishful" and "Ignorant."Some Christians through wishful thinking or ignorance would place it in the hands of God.
I realize that Carrier does the same, and that you think he's clever, but really, SEG, emulating your hero by poisoning the well? You're above that, SEG. You can do better.
