On Hunger 2

June 5, 2012

P: Ignorance is evil.

Q: Hunger is evil.

R: Ignorance is the hunger for Wisdom

S: God is Wisdom.

The fear of Ignorance is the beginning of Wisdom. (My reinterpretation of an old proverb. Why would a loving parent want you to . . . )

In the Apology, Socrates pretty much says the same thing.

Satan loves prejudice

P: Prejudice is evil.

Q: Racism is a form of prejudice.

R: Homophobia is a form of prejudice.

S: (Racism and homophobia) are evil.

And what about the other fruits of our genetic inheritance: speciesism, anthropocentrism, tribalism . . .

CJC: Atheism is a prejudice against metaphorical reasoning. Test.

A Parable

March 2, 2011

A well-dressed priest, followed by an acolyte with censer, steps up upon a podium to address his congregation. He begins to intone:

There is no truth, only persuasion. And at every occasion I will remind you that:

there is no truth, only persuasion. And without provocation I shall remind you that:

there is no truth, only persuasion. And as justification I hope to remind you that . . .

After five minutes of this, his voice begins to break. He leans back and asks the acolyte “Can I get some water? My throat is parched.”

To which the acolyte responds “Can I persuade you otherwise?”

(From the 13th Book of Relativisionism)
