Spirited: The differences between those on one hand who have actually done the hard work of digging into, unpacking, and analyzing the underlying meaning, logic, and purpose of philosophies, ideologies, and evolutionary scientism (what passes for science these days) and those on the other hand who have not must not be understated.
The former seek truth, whether pleasant or unpleasant, while the latter most generally seek self-gratification, self-glorification, power, and/or entry to inner circles.
The latter affix labels to themselves such as Ph.d, scientist, and Progressive and sport them for the same reason as they wear designer label clothing, jewelry, etc.
Being high on conceit and hot-air but very low on real knowledge, they must pretend to know what they really do not know.
Excuse me, but what gives you or anyone else the right to claim you know what I believe?
Just because you know that I am a scientist doesn't mean you know ANYTHING else about me. You don't know my faith. You don't know my political leanings. You have no right to label me as a Progressive, an atheist, or an adherent of any other belief system. Nor is it moral of you to label any other scientist that way.
“Just because you know that I am a scientist doesn’t mean you know ANYTHING else about me”
Spirited: Faux moral outrage will get you nowhere. And as for not knowing anything about your inner workings and about what you imagine is true how can any of us not know when you’ve been determinedly broadcasting both?
” Nor is it moral of you to label any other scientist that way.”
Spirited: The invented ‘morality’ of autonomous natural-man is not moral law but rather arrogance and selfishness passed off as morality.
