How to always hit your target: shoot first, and whatever you hit, say it was your target.

And that, brothers and sisters, is the kind of foolishness you get people who insist on denying biblical theism. A good illustration of any as the length people will go to avoid acknowledging basic truths.

According to Boethius (Topica 6): “[argument from] authority is the weakest kind of proof."

She deletes posts quite a bit. Must be that whole "women have the right to change their minds" thing.

It's kinda disturbing that though I've deleted alot of posts, I still managed to rack up 2000 posts within 11months of being here :shock:

I have no idea what this even means. But somehow I find the post hilarious! Is it some kind of philosophy geek joke?

That seems like a "might makes right" argument. Which is true that it is a weak form of legitimacy.

Also Boethius is now the coolest Latin name I have heard.

It is -- I stole it from Aquinas. It showed something of a very dry sense of humor on his part. He's appealing to the authority of Boethius to prove that arguments from authority are very weak. :)

Sort of - might makes right is a very specific subset of authority, in which you are appealing to force. The vast majority of time, that's a logical fallacy. An appeal to authority is far less likely to be a fallacy -- just very weak in terms of proof. It may be the best we have in some case, and it's better than nothing at all (and certainly better than a mere objection from incredulity), but of all arguments, it's the weakest. And we know that's true because Boethius has an awesome name and he said so! 8)

Saturday, June 4

Tell jokes to entertain yourself, not others. That way, if no one else is laughing, at least you are enjoying yourself.

That's my motto.

At least I can make myself laugh.
