This is interesting.

What do you think. This is somethiung like The Old Seers encountered into in our studies. I thought of yis the other day and thought I would look it up. It's an insight that shows why we aren't understood very easily. I looked up "legal definition of human" to see again see what the worlds idea of human is. I'm not trying to create an argument or debate, and submit this for interst. I don't know if the URL will work.

The only possible thing the world needs saving from are those running it.

Knowledge trumps faith

Lies are nothing more then falsehoods searching for the truth

Even if this wasn't filled

Even if this wasn't filled with logical fallacies, I don't understand the point he's trying to make. And yes, I realize it says "satirical" at the top.


I understand the point you're trying to make, but not him.

Yes, communication is important, and it's hard at times. What I really want to conclude from that page, however, is that it's far easier for us to understand each other if we are making an honest effort. However, if we are, instead, intentionally trying to be confusing and engage in mental masturbation, like this guy. And, go on a lot of unnecessary tangents, committing various logical fallacies, and not addressing the real issue, like this guy. Then, it'll obviously be harder for us to understand each other.

Our revels now are ended. These our actors, | As I foretold you, were all spirits, and | Are melted into air, into thin air; | And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, | The cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces, | The solemn temples, the great globe itself, - Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve, | And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, | Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff | As dreams are made on, and our little life | Is rounded with a sleep. - Shakespeare
