I think humans do the right thing by coming to conclusions when forced to do so.
Your acquaintance with humans must have been a very different experience to mine.

Re: Philosophy

I've seen people, including myself, be SO SURE of the truth...only to realize that's not what happened. At a "training course" I was on yesterday. The instructor showed a diagram of three vehicles involved in a traffic accident that was developing. He asked the class which vehicle was at fault. A c...

Philosophy

I became interested in philosophy a few years ago and made a casual acquaintance with some of the characters who have played a part in its progression since Socrates wandered about the market places of ancient Greece, annoying the locals. I can’t say I am any wiser because of it. I thought that lear...

In other words, you're just writing bullshit.
I suppose so.
You are not a contributing member of this forum.
Well it's not like anyone else was taking any notice of you.
You're a troll.
I'd like to think there's a bit more to me than that.
Go away, please.
Okay, bye for now.

Whatever it is, it's probably more interesting than your post.
Why/How? Care to explain your opinion or are you just going to spew out some nonsense bullshit?
Only kidding. I didn't read your post so I don't even know how boring it is. :D

IMO you've invited a larger question Simone Weil touched on.
In your opinion everything invites the inclusion of Simone Weil in some way or other.

Why are you against me?
Because the three posts of yours that I've read indicate you have a very simplistic view of the World. You appear to see only in black and white.

Please provide an argument against this definition, if you disagree.
I don't disagree with the existing definition. I'm saying let's give it a new definition so it no longer applies to us.

I've noticed the lack of scientistics (adherents of Scientism, that is reductionist at core) on this forum. Why is it that Scientism is frown upon here?
I don't know what scientism is but if you are advocating it, that's a good enough reason to frown on it.

Humans are evil. No doubt about it.
Well humans invented the word along with it's definition. We could always change the definition so the description doesn't apply to most of us. Fixed.

Re: Orwell vs. Huxley

Well the unmoved life living itself doesn't have to move or do anything, but when it does move and do something, it will be because it was meant to move and do something, and it will not move or do something one nano second before it is meant to do it. And that movement will be known as knowledge. ...
