Not everybody

Not everybody is the same – jeez I know it’s obvious. So – why are there people who are called weird? I’m not talking about looks. Some people think differently about things, so they are labelled as weird. This is because they have some ideas that are pretty different toRead More

Some people do not know what social media is

Often times I make assertions based on my experiences. Social media occupies a lot of my time. I can observe how the humans think and react. I gather a lot of evidence, but I don’t often have the time to show what I gather. Well today provided a classic. SomeRead More

Starting over with belief

Belief and believing (etc) have been a big part of my attention for many years. Having read a lot on this, I decided to start all over. What I mean is, I’m going back to the roots of belief. There are things that determine beliefs and I will go intoRead More

Comprehension is dead

In a previous post, I had reason to conclude that ‘Reading is dead‘.  Of course one can read and understand nothing! The social media era has seen a destruction of both reading as a physical act of moving the eyes across the page and decoding words – but also peopleRead More

The nature and danger of belief

I should have been spending time on Netflix – but over the last few hours (near midnight on 22nd Jan 2022), I came across the video below (which could disappear). It’s about Dawkins among a panel and a bunch of people in the audience. This triggered me to explore –Read More

Arrogant again

Oh well, here we go again. Another social media conversation ending with me being called arrogant. The outline is below. So it made me wonder again what is the definition of ‘arrogant’ – and by extension condescending. There’s a wide open information superhighway where anyone can find the dictionary meaning.Read More

What’s in the head and not

I amuse myself on various forums; observing how the humans think. After all, the human race is gifted with a kind of thinking ability that has allowed them to split the atom and fathom quantum physics. They’ve even created quantum computers. So – you would think that this species isRead More

Lord Sumption

The  things I’ve heard about him are of the following kind, ‘he’s weird’ and ‘he’s spoken some nonsense about [blah blah]’. Some people only remember a headline that went like, Lord Sumption tells stage 4 cancer patient her life is ‘less valuable’ – which was spread across several tabloid andRead More

How the humans are driven

Humans are driven by various things. Some will again be jumping on the net to Google everything, instead of thinking. Those who read pop-psychology will be about to lecture me on ‘needs’ which drive people i.e. things like primary (as per Freud) and secondary needs (as per Maslow). I haveRead More

High IQ and thinking skills

I’ll try to keep this short. Intelligence quotients are fairly well correlated with abilities to reason. But it doesn’t mean that if your IQ is 130 that you will most times make much better decisions than everybody else. How? Because intelligence and thinking skills isn’t everything. Emotions can cause theRead More
