We live in an era of skepticism. Skepticism which targets one specific way of thinking: The Christian way of thinking. But how can you differentiate between doubt and dogmatic denial? wondered William James.

How can one deny the logic behind the idea of someone designing the cosmos due to “skepticism” and yet accept as highly probable and “logical” the idea of a universe being without reason at all or the idea of people being simple sets of lifeless matter? The more you use specific axioms (e.g. materialism) as the basis of your thinking the more dogmatic you become. And the most definite characteristic of dogmatic people is their shouting so loud against dogmatism.

Deep inside you know. Deep inside you are certain.

Otherwise you could not live at all.

Start being skeptic with skepticism.

And all darkness will come to light…

In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He is the creator of Huo Chess, one of the smallest micro-chess programs ever that is perfect for educational purposes. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy, as well as the philosophy of the irrational. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. Since our thought is dictated by our assumptions, the only way to free it and know cosmos as it is, is to think irrationally and destroy everything we have built. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans. We should stop thinking in order to think. Credo quia absurdum!

One thought on “Skepticism. Garbage.”

  1. Very good points. As to James, did he not (as a pragmatist) see the pragmatic value of religion, as helping us to have a more virtuous society?
