Philosophy Forums

The philosophy forums is a small community aimed at sustained engagement with philosophical issues. The forum assumes that conversation or dialectic is one of the best modes of inquiry, but only when participants are not hostile, but gentle and earnestly willing to seek. Having a good nature, therefore, is far more important to the community than any background in philosophy. If you wish to contribute to the forum, you may register (its free and only takes about a minute) and start posting your ideas. Consequently, if you decide to join the philosophy forums, we suggest that you introduce yourself in the New Member Introduction/Welcome Thread.

Hahahaha

I hate to laugh at Stephen Hawking because I have great respect for him, but the lego picture is hilarious.

Certainly. It is a bizarre mixture of feelings and thoughts.

I'm not sure what this has to do with 9/11.

In my opinion, this is only offensive because of the "owned".

I'm getting a 404 error from this one. I assume it's been removed.

I don't think any of them are unethical, or even that funny.

Well, maybe I am wrong, but under my interpretation it has something to do with the fall of the towers (I guess that is the relation).

Sorry, I meant that I understand how negroes could find that offensive, not that it is offensive.

The philosophical question is; is this type of internet activity ethical? Or should it be encouraged as just "fun", or "boys will be boys" behavior?
all comedy comes from anger. food for thought.

I know many jokes that have nothing to do with anger.
