Then why did you post an incomplete sentence with no context? Hobo

Perfectly reasonable in terms of the question in the title of the thread...

No, we think you are delusional and possibly mentally unstable.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Possibly? Rolleyes

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Regarding this, my fucks have long since been exhausted. When I see these topics pop up, I instantaneously think, "it is a TRAP1!!"

Reality.

Have a theory about how the universe works? Check it against reality. Have a theory about whether something exists? Find some way to test to see if it's anywhere in reality. Have a theory about antigravity? Check to see if it works in reality. Have a theory about an awesome bearded dude in the sky? Find a way to check if he's there in reality... and I mean actually check, not staring at our navels and pontificating from our armchairs. If he isn't, then he doesn't exist as described, and if there's no way to check, it's unknowable. Whether our experiment plays out in reality the way we guessed it would, or whether we find what we expect to find when we go looking for it, that's how we know our guesses and hypotheses are true.

EDIT: And yeah, it's getting really difficult to take anything Diddo posts seriously.

My parents visited from the UK and gave us a big lump of cheddar. We can't get it here in Germany nor can we bring any back with us overwise it melts on the plane. So I get to eat it once or twice a year.

Just simple cheddar but it's like the food of kings to us.

Ah, cheese.





Ah ha. Thumbsup Cheese Rolling Race in Gloucestershire.




Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
