You don't know shit!
    #2242291 - 01/14/04 06:50 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Whether you're a bible-thumping Christian, a New-Age guru, a UFO conspiracy theorist, or a hardcore skeptic, you know absolutely NOTHING.  You don't even know that you're reading this post right now.  Sure you could fall back on Descartes' "I think, therefore I am" argument, but I bet there's some ample refutation of that which raises doubt as to whether you're really even thinking.  There is absolutely no certainty in this universe.  Have a nice day.  :smile:

It takes knowing some shit to form such a thesis.

Knowing you don't know shit IS knowing something! :wink:

But how do you know that you don't know shit?  Maybe you do know something, but don't know that you know it.  Know what I mean?

Question: If these are all forms of insanity, is there such a thing as sanity? And if so, is sanity to accept reality as it is percieved? Must I accept consensus opinion of reality in order to be sane? Do you claim to be more sane than me?

what do you expect from a disharmonic tone of existence?

this reality = contradictions.

the reality of a pure subjective nature and contradictions, entangled with circumstances.

Because of its infinitely self-questioning nature, how can this type of thinking lead towards anything but chaos? If carried out indefinitely one could have no resolutions. While it is certainly good to never become concrete in one's ideas, how can one ever obtain some degree of balance? For sake of peace of mind, it would seem acceptable to acknowledge a certain amount of evidence as being a correct enough assumption, while at the same time remembering to be reasdy to reconsider said assumption in the light of new evidences.

You don't know shit. Shit in my book would be refering to waste, excessive waste. I know shit when i see it.

You know absolutely Nothing. Nothing would be lack of something. Something would be what holds us to this reality. For you to know nothing is just to know the opposite of shit.
