Wrong kind!

well a bit late for advice now - I went off to get one of them hybrid bikes, but came back with a Scott Scale 60. It was too tempting...Not what I wanted though, nor practical for plan, will need rigid forks, slicks and panniers.

Sacrilidge maybe, but the plan is to cycle round the perimeter of the south Island of New Zealand for a couple of months when there is a small break in study next summer.

Off to get fit (ter) !


shiny new bike in New Forest this afternoon.

You are right. You were created with a conscience. That conscience is there to help you make the right decision in times of uncertainty. However, what that has to do with facing reality before it is too late is beyond me. Too late for what?

Is it though? Surely conscience is not created but develops - it is not an absolute and does not pre-exist.

Also it is culturally conditioned. People in different areas and times have different 'consciences'.

As to what the previous poster was alluding too - is very confusing. If there is no God as he implies it is never too late for anything as there would be no comeback on anything you decided to do or not do.

Odd.

Well, I did not say it came prepopulated with default values. It definitely takes cues from those that raise you as to what is right or wrong. However there is an innate desire to do right versus wrong and as such, you are created with a conscience.

I wonder if this is true though? The conditioning can be contextual and inherited from millennia of religious teaching.

Many 'primitive' tribes such as the IK for example seem to not only have no conscience as we would describe it but actually follow social codes we would find bordering on immoral.

Quote:
Children by age three are at least sometimes permanently expelled from the household and form groups called age-bands consisting of those within the same age group.

The 'Junior Group' consists of children from the ages of three to eight and the 'Senior Group' consists of those between eight and thirteen. No adults look after the children, who teach each other the basics of survival.

Wiki

In any case, that is not what I was referring to though....I mean that 'right' and 'wrong' are culturally defined and so conscience, where it exists, MUST be a product of this and neither moral concepts nor any conscience can be related to any absolute.

Conscience is irrelavent when you realise that according to the latest neurological finding that thoughts and decisions are formulated in the subconscious mind up to 10 seconds before our conscious self is aware of them.

What fun! If I tell you to fuck off, its because I subconsciously decided to 10 seconds before I was aware of it - the rest is just the self-defence of the ego justifying that subconscious decision in order that we appear internally rational to ourselves!

Screw You Buddy .

Ok, well a conscience does exist. The desire to do what is "right" is there in everyone. The definition of such depends on the social training the person recieves.

This depends. I'd agree that a conscience does exist, but not necessarily that the desire to do what is "right" is there in everyone. In fact the whole sociopathic personality disorder is centered around the absence of a conscience.

We only have the desire to do what's right once we have accepted Jesus into our hearts. Until then, Satan's influence controls us. Noah, your heretical musings are really disturbing. Hold strong against the forces of the dark, brother.

shiny new bike in New Forest this afternoon.

I recently bought the cannondale Quick CX. I swore I would not buy a cannondale but they had what I wanted, intermediate priced hybrid with NO suspension (I think it's a waste of money) and disk brakes. The disk brakes it comes with are for shit but upgrading aint all that hard or expensive.

Too bad for me Honda EOLed one of the best bikes they ever made. I'll have to buy used if I want want one.

I believe that it is there in everyone, even the Sociopathic. The difference being that what is right only counts for them and nobody else. The conscience is there, but for some reason is completely turned inward.

very much love for the Cannondale Bad Boy Range - wish I had got one off the internet now - Im having a nightmare with this Scott, will be going back to the shop soon, (thought i would be good and support a local shop and get a better set up bike) and I hope im in a philosophical mood when I see them


Not sure what that Honda is, but I used to have a fun Yamaha FZR - apparently it was a classic but I didn't realize at the time, let it go for peanuts. Would be nice to go on a tour round Scandinavia with a bike...

That bad boy cost too much. I needed a "dad bike" that could also do a 100s miles tour if I wanted.


The FZR is not a true classic. The FZR is a classic like the datsun/nissan Z cars are classic. The bike above is the VRF 800. Honda doesn't know how to make motorcycles anymore. Form is no longer following function for them.
