It is bad enough that so many people believe things without any evidence. What is worse is that some people have no conception of evidence and regard facts as just someone else’s opinion. -Thomas Sowell
We only have one life to live. We have one life to make the best sense of the world and figure out what is real. I for one, do not want to be intellectually dishonest with myself. I do not want to create a reality in my head independent of experience or evidence. As such, this blog is dedicated to critical thinking, intellectual honesty, and reading comprehension. Truth is the goal.
When I deal with people talking Negative Theology, they seem to discard reading comprehension (such as the fact that language is ambiguous and a phrase without context can have a large variety of meanings). When I talk to these people, I think to myself “What are you doing? Do you just want to be right or are you seeking truth? What evidence do we have to validate your belief? Does your evidence pass critical thinking tests? Or are you fashioning a reality based on what you want to be true.” It boggles my mind.
I see all these stories about cancer and death. It is scary stuff. Any one of us can die at any time. I would rather have truth than winning some debate. When I am dead, the truth will matter, winning debates will not.
