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

Build me a house – sanity check

Sometimes in life you question your own sanity. I’m talking about me of course. But it I don’t cause this. The idiots surrounding me cause this. Here is a situation which is an analogy to an underlying matter. Developer: Give me a quotation to build a house for me. Builder:Read More

Uncomfortable ideas

It’s the name of a book! In the event that you don’t know Dr Bo Bennett, you are expected to jump on the net and start Googling madly. After all, you don’t know who’s who in this world – and everybody out there is a guru of some sort –Read More

Proved: Social media turns people into idiots

Oh dear – in the last week the meme factory has been in overdrive after Nicky Minaj tweeted as below.   This sparked side splitting laughter all over the net! Minaj is such an expert that, the Minister of Health in Trinidad had to fact check what she said onRead More

Dogs and lower animals may solve complex problems

Yep. That’s what I was told in a real FTF conversation tonight 2021-09-04 between 20:00 and 21:20PM. Some must wonder why I even engage in those kinds of discussions. Well, I discover how the average human being thinks. It’s stupid basically – the patterns of thought – and the grossRead More
