    Binary logic propositions applied to non-atomic elements

    If you're right or wrong, that won't hurt someone else. But if you're an ahole, it will. Being an ahole all of the time is like going up to bears and stabbing them in the toes. Sounds exactly like haggling. In many cultures, people ENJOY haggling. If you haggle, the seller will give you tea...

    Then it means that whoever you date would be always acting like an ahole. 50% of the time, she'd be an ahole, and 50% of the time, she'd be acting like an ahole that was also wrong. How long would you stay with such a person? If a Big Mac is worth $5, then you're claiming that there are 2...

    Gaming shops. You can go there, hire a PS4 or Xbox360 with whatever games you want to play: new games, old games, whatever. You can go with your friends, hang out in your own little booth and play together. Like Laser Tag but for video games. I'd make them also like coffee shops in Holland...

    There's a scheme like that in the UK, that could be imitated. You can hire a bicycle very cheaply on your credit card. You can ride it where you want to go. Then you leave it on the pavement. It's fitted with a GPS (lo-jack). A van is sent out to pick them up each night. You could use a more...

    Matriarchy

    There are matriarchal societies ALREADY. It's a question of WHICH societies would be better if they were matriarchal, i.e. what properties of a society would lead to more improvements under a matriarchy than a patriarchy. You already outlined one: strong and forthright women. A society where...

    Sure. There's no pride in thinking that women are against you, not as long as you want women in your life. So for gay men, there might be pride in this type of thinking. But not for heterosexual men. Of course, there's pride in it IF those men wished to blame women for their relation ship...

    One male can impregnate many females. So you could kill 75% of the males in a war and still repopulate the nation in 1 generation. But a woman can only carry a few kids at most, and usually only 1 at a time. So if you killed most of the females, it would take several generations to repopulate...

    There are plenty of people who want to make a ToE of physics, but don't. So I don't think that the desire to make a ToE of physics makes you become extremely religious. Rather, those who are extremely religious and thus have a strong belief in G-d anyway, have a strong belief that G-d will help...

    Scepticism just means that I don't assume you are right just because some humans say so, and want to check it out for myself. I'd read what you wrote, and analyse it for myself. I might even repeat your experiments for myself. Peer review means I ask the guys who you went to school with, if...

    The science delusion

    This is easily demonstrated by Newton v Einstein. The data that Newton and Kepler worked with, the precise measurements of Tycho Brahe, were still not exactly matching Newton's theory of gravity. Einstein's theory is much closer, by billions of times. Even so, 99% of the time, Newton's theory...

    Science doesn't have the answers yet.

The theories themselves...

    Ignorance is when you don't know anything, not when you know stuff, some of which is wrong. Sure. But Maimonides doesn't deny that you have to be Meizid (intentional) to be punished fully for something. To be an apikores, you cannot be ignorant, because then you wouldn't be intentionally...

    The science delusion

    One of the big problems with science is precisely this. According to science, if someone tells you that the Sun goes aroung the Earth, or the Earth goes around the Sun, you're supposed to tell them to go to Hell until you see clear, consistent evidence that proves it beyond any reasonable...

    Yes. Bound to hit your Fe and Si. So get some. However, the INTP version of external validation is auxiliary Ne, which isn't at all like the Te-aux for INTJs. In a nutshell, Ne looks for patterns in data, by cross-linking (observering the same phenomena in several disparate topics). E.G. to...
