I think as a preliminary exercise we need to perform a conceptual, syntactical and hierarchical analysis of the words "believe", "natural" "bothering" and "philosophy.

Nb. also "I" "to" "some" "are" and "with".

Nah, that's analytic shit. Continental philosophy is more fun.

Ahh, but you are now caught in the fundamental paradox of dispute. You try to evade the request for definition by narrowing the definition of "philosophy", one of the very terms I asked you to so do with.

But do the definitions "suffer"? Morality is about suffering.

I'm trying out a new hybrid concept of metaethics. I only believe in objective morality from Wednesday lunchtime until Friday evening. Nihilism over the weekend and subjective morals on Monday mornings.
