How do you think?

I am stealing this discussion from AC Grayling, renowned modern philosopher to make my point.

Science demands that every statement must be TRUE or FALSE. (E.g. that is how a computer works, that is how philosophy works and that is how all research works – disproving the null hypothesis.

But if you make this statement when there is no king of France, will it be true or false:

The present king of France is bald

You cannot disprove that statement because it has not been reduced to its core underlying assertions. In this case it would be:

  • There is such a thing as the king of France
  • There is only one such thing
  • That thing is bald

My questions to you are:

  1. How do you think?
  2. How confident are you in your own logic?
  3. Are your decisions habits or real thoughts?

This could be become a really long dissertation, but I shall assign that as homework to you.

The fun version of this is to get someone to answer this question?

Do you still beat up your wife?
