I started watching that video you linked. The author either doesn't understand what claims JP is actually making OR it's clickbait. I know the positions that JP holds and the fatal error that the author of the video makes is saying that JP is arguing for a Darwinian truth when he is not. JP explicitly says that irt spreading your genes is the top priority for life that is a Darwinian claim and not necessarily the claim that JP is making.I did not derail because that is his position and in the context that rationality is not real, it is the same as saying what Peterson has said on truth. If evolution is all we can go on which is our bias then that is also how rationality is not real. It's not a matter of denying bias it is a matter of saying reducing rationality to only bias makes evolution the only option. Do you wish me to like the video again where Peterson denies truth the way rationality is hypothetically being denied in this thread because truth and rationality go hand in hand.I don't believe JP holds that position and has never actually talked about passing on genes as a priority. He's not a Darwinian, he's a pragmatist.
I'd appreciate if you didn't try and derail the thread any further, thanks.
