Just some random thoughts that aspire to be aphorisms. If I had more time I could make them more concentrated and pointy.
Two things interest me: universality and certitude. Make that one thing.
There are limits to knowledge. Which is not to say there is no knowledge of the Limitless.
If reality is what exists independently of the mind, then we are sealed in ignorance. Conversely, if reality can be known, it is because the immaterial knowing subject is no less real than what it knows.
Sight is to touch as reason is to faith. Do you hear me?
Science is not equipped to answer the question of how science is possible. Limited to strictly scientific categories, neither science nor scientist are possible, and certainly not important.
Cynicism its the tribute narcissism pays to credulity.
Between intellect and reality is ether nothing or everything.
The most certain truths completely escape language, for example, experience. Boredom is the incapacity to be shocked by its presence.
The intellect sheds light on reality, as reality transmits light to the intellect. Thankfully, God sheds darkness on the intellect, without which we could never know what can't be known. Faith allows us to see into this darkness, or at least bump into things.
Certitude and truth are two sides of the same reality. When certitude is joined with falsehood, it is polite to yell fire in the hole!
Progressive wisdom begins with fear of the mob.
Being becomes knowledge that knowledge may return to being.
Believing the truth surpasses knowledge of its countless models.
Doing good presupposes seeing things as there are. Seeing things as they aren't is Satan's portal.
The left makes things so complicated. Why not just outlaw irony, perspective, and common sense?
As all reasonable people know, man is free because he is rational. If he isn't rational then he isn't free, and if he isn't free he isn't rational. Tell me again: how is it that man lacks free will?
Science is the discovery of necessity. It can't prove the existence of freedom because it presupposes it.
Sending every young adult to college will not raise IQ one iota, but that's not the point. Rather, it will contribute mightily to our collective stupidity.
Anti-gun legislation is weaponized defenselessness.
The most important things are not means to an end, but for their own sake. There's a name for useless people trying desperately to make themselves useful: Democrats.
