Which board is best for discussing philosophy?

Real philosophy, like Socrates and shit, or personal philosophy, like my own personal thoughts on life?

Okay well, you know how it's pretty basic knowledge that Jesus was a carpenter? I was thinking, what if He wasn't, and the only reason people think He was is because that's how they translated the word for what He actually was? Because the word in question was "tecton", and that more literally translates to "artisan" which can mean a number of various trades. In John 2:19, Jesus said: "Destroy this temple, and I will rebuild it again in three days." He was referring to Himself, and how he was destined to be killed and resurrect in three days. So if He said He was going to metaphorically rebuild a temple, then perhaps people started calling Him a metaphorical "artisan". And then that got mistranslated to carpenter, presumably because His dad was one.

Yeah, makes sense. The bibles full of symbology and askewed translations. Never take anything in the Bible literally. It's fun to analyze it, especially stuff like Genesis and Exodus.

Exodus is probably my favorite. Growing up, the story of Moses was the one I was most educated in and the most entertained by.

what do you want to discuss? Do you have a theory? Because I'll gladly listen to it.

Social, I guess. Sometimes there are subjects on that.

I've never expected anything from FJ except mild amusement, and discussions just intelligent enough to keep me distracted from the disheartening reality that I have no life.

But... you were the one that wanted to talk about philosophy... I dunno how to help you then, man. Kids are everywhere. Try social. There is no else place for that.
