    Rehabilitating Logical Fallacies

    My above post doesn't require a precise meaning. In maths, your reasoning must have steps, that you can follow and explain to anyone, in such a way that each step follows the other, where everyone agrees that if the previous step is true, then the next step is definitely true as well, for every...

    Rehabilitating Logical Fallacies

    Nothing is very useful, that reveals how to objectively detect desirable qualities in people. Like being logical. Before people saw being logical as being desirable, people were happy to say that only INTPs were logical. Once people perceived being logical as being desirable, it seemed as if...

    I'm gonna work as a cashier for a while, any advice?

    Make sure you don't take over from someone who pilfers the till, or you might find that your till is short at the end of your shift, and you can get blamed for someone else's light fingers.

    It’s the end of the world as we knew it

    The "books" that we read, are the sources of information that we have access to. A deity's "books" that it reads, are the sources of information that the deity has access to. If the deity is omniscient, then it knows everything. Even if not, if it's a deity like Athena, the goddess of the hunt...

    Being an INTP lawyer seems like a pain in the Ass, now I'm not sure what to do.

    Ti requires a lot of sustained mental effort. As Edison pointed out, there's no shortage of things that people will do to avoid sustained thinking. So high-quality Ti is very rare. Same for programming, in that 90% of it is about crossing the Ts and dotting the Is. In that case, become a...

    It’s the end of the world as we knew it

    Modernism is non-religious idealism, the belief that non-religious things like science and democracy will solve all of our problems (science curing lack of food and disease, and democracy ending war and violent conflicts). It began with the French Enlightenment, when non-religion became very...

    It’s the end of the world as we knew it

    There are plenty of people following other philosophies. However, the entertainment media keeps showing men following hedonism in relationships and in the workplace, or men being cynical about relationships and the workplace. So it's more the case that if you're hooked on getting your...

    How to make a hit flick?

    Because you have watched them before. Either them, or a film that is incredibly like them. If you eat chocolate chip ice cream 3 times a day, after a month, you'll get sick of eating chocolate chip ice cream. 1) Now that TV is 24/7 with 150 channels, and with Sky, etc., advertising a new film...

    As a conscientious religious person, I think my generation is losing a great, deep heritage by embracing secularism

    Knowledge is power. The more knowledge humanity has, the more power humanity has to better humanity's lot. The knowledge of the ancients is a lot more than the knowledge of only what we know right now. So I think we should read it, and learn what we can from it. If we ditch previous knowledge...

    The end of woke

    Under the law, if you are in receipt of stolen goods, it has to be returned to its rightful owner. If it's previous rightful owner died, then its current rightful owner is his inheritors.

    Most people go through this. They realise that in order to do something like have kids, they have to sacrifice most of their free time, and most of their money, and in addition, have to earn so much on such a regular basis that they need to stick to their career choices. However, if an angel...

    Humans are Inherently greedy

    If economies are about self-interest, is it really in our self-interest to keep spending our lives just focussed on having more?

    On reflection, having read your post, I agree. @BurnedOut said "when used properly". So in theory, and if the world was an ideal place, he'd be right. In practice, looking at the world the way it is at the moment, you're right.

    Wow. That's a huge list of things you're blaming on a generation. My generation is Gen X. They weren't even alive when the State of Israel came into being. So you can't be talking about my generation. Even the oldest Boomers were only 2 when the State of Israel started in 1948, and the rest...

    I had some life coaching a while back. The life coach gave me a self-hypnosis process to get me to think more positively. Something like "think of a beautiful beach.

    I agree that enlightened people aren't going to make trivial statements. Having watched "The Greatest Showman", not sure that Barnum was not an enlightened person.

    Is the term 'ditto' offensive?

    If you saying the same insult to the other person would be offensive, then yes. If not, then no. No, because "c*nt" is an offensive name for a woman, not an offensive name for a "man". You could have called her a "b*stard" in return. OTOH, she could have decided that would make you a...

    I saw those on the film "Toys", in 1992. Anyway, I just read that they were being deployed in the Ukraine war. Great for the USA. They get a new battleground to field-test new weaponry. AIs can be programmed to be Malthusians and then save humanity from over-population by killing billions of...

However, I doubt they'd agree to a boxing match, because they seem to be mostly over 70, and so the fight...

    One advantage of drones, is they're small, and thus, you can make LOTS of them, and send LOTS of them into the battlefield. Another advantage is they're small, and so much harder to hit. Another advantage is they're run by computers, and so can react and move much faster than most humans. One...
