Quote
When the mind's eye rests on objects illuminated by truth and reality, it understands and comprehends them, and functions intelligently; but when it turns to the twilight world of change and decay, it can only form opinions, its vision is confused and its beliefs shifting, and it seems to lack intelligence. (Plato, 380BC)

Quote from: "Ludwig Wittgenstein"
Philosophy is a battle against the bewitchment of our intelligence by means of our language.
I haven't read anything by him, but what I've read about him has sparked my interest; he talks about an issue near and dear to my heart: how our language confuses us.

Quote from: "bennyboy"
I'm really just trying to see if a new post in this section will reset the thread/post count correctly :)

From Nietzsche:
-A casual stroll through the lunatic asylum shows that faith does not prove anything.
-There is not enough love and goodness in the world to permit giving any of it away to imaginary beings.
-Plato was a bore.


G.E. Moore
Theology is the finding of bad reasons for things we are going to believe anyway.
