Opinion is the lowest form of human knowledge.
Yup. That's what we have to work with.
not too concerned with truth as long as i have ice cream
Often, I run into folks that claim there is no absolute truth.
I ask them if that statement is true, and their brains short-circuit.
Just keep looking..You"ll find it eventually
Then why is it that if you have a High Speed Clock in a jet and one on the ground, you can fly the jet 3000 miles and more time passes on the stationary clock than the one on the jet?
This is too philosophical for me. I don't even understand Schrodinger's Cat.
Truth exists, it's in the pudding and I can prove it.
just don't exactly know which pudding.
For truth not to exist, it must be truth that there is no truth. It’s a self defeating argument.
There is truth...and there is provable truth.
I'm a big fan of the latter.
Are you certain?
Deep down, people know the truth, but it can be a damaging truth. So they close ranks and respond with a big lie. You tell a lie enough times and it functions like an alternate truth.
The answer to that lies in this simple truth:
Math and science are things conjured up by eggheads hoping to impress chicks
I'm not sure, to be truthful.
Unless one is born with a built-in B.S. meter (which personally will argue that we do if we listen carefully), experience accrued in life will help guide your choices.
Being bombarded with advertising tactics by repeating at least 3x within the context of the thing that is the point of sell, doesn't make it true.
Some common sense is needed throughout life.
The do unto others...true
Karma has a long memory...true
Walk a mile in the other person's shoe...true.
Judge not as so you will be judged...true
Many paths you will encounter in your journey. So have a code you can live by. Your word is the most valuable thing you possess.
Ah, all of our armchair philosophers waxing rhapsodic here in our little patch of the InterGoogle.
Try reading Rene Decartes. He covered pretty much everything that's been raised in this thread so far. Kindle book is .45 US.
"The appearance of "Meditations on First Philosophy" in 1641 marked a dramatic turning point in the history of Western thought.
In "Meditations on the First Philosophy", René Descartes delves into epistemology, or the theory of knowledge. He asks questions such as whether there is such a thing as knowledge, and if so, what distinguishes it from opinion. However, in order to answer these questions and to validate knowledge, it was necessary to raise the fundamental questions of being."
Some seem to think only hearsay and opinion matter.
Verifiable or not?
