Dealing with Sophists: Proving Your Argument vs Proving Yourself

Have you ever been caught off guard by a person who was attempting to debate you, rather than attempting to engage you in a fairminded conversation?  They ask for proof of your position, which on the surface seems to be a reasonable request, and they may even veil their position with words such as “science”, “reason”, or some altruistic motives, but since it is a debate against you and not […] Read more »

Twitter and the Reign of Chaos

Twitter is a great place to “cherry pick” from, as well as to employ the “biased sample” fallacy. See the following video to see how these fallacies are used to manipulate the masses, to justify a malicious course of action, and to claim somebody or some group is a victim, when in reality they are not. “Cherry picking, suppressing evidence, or the fallacy of incomplete evidence is the act of […] Read more »

Balkanization is Collective Mind Control

Balkanize: 1) to break up (a region, a group, etc.) into smaller and often hostile units 2) DIVIDE, COMPARTMENTALIZE ~Merriam-Webster Dictionary Balkanization is a mind control technique used on a population rather than an individual. In mind control, they fracture the personality into compartments so that they can program in an alter personality that will obey them, such as an assassin personality, a sex kitten personality, and a top secret […] Read more »

The Immorality of Mandatory Vaccinations and Compelled Speech

Why are mandatory medical procedures, such as mandatory vaccinations, immoral? Here’s one reason: The scientific method is based on inductive reasoning, which is different than deductive reasoning in that the conclusion is not certain, but rather a generalization and probability based on the collected evidence. The conclusion of deductive reasoning can be certain, even if the conclusion is wrong (because it was fed incorrect premises), however, the conclusion of inductive […] Read more »

On Stupidity, by Dietrich Bonhoeffer

One becomes stupid when they abdicate their will over to an ideology or collective; while they retain their intellect, their will to think independently, and to question their beliefs, is forfeited. “This was taken from a circular letter, addressing many topics, written to three friends and co-workers in the conspiracy against Hitler, on the tenth anniversary of Hitler’s accession to the chancellorship of Germany.” ~Dr Cliff “DK” Kelly ‘Stupidity is […] Read more »

Circular Arguments, Emotional Reasoning and JADE (Justify, Argue, Defend, Explain)

The government, the media, universities, and progressives all seemingly use techniques perfected by narcissists and those with borderline personality disorder, as they use ridicule and their fabricated victimization to get us to “JADE”. I highly recommend this video to learn more about this tactic, and what can be done about it. Read more »

Intellectual Self-Defense and the Four Circuits of Being

There are four primary circuits of being, and each circuit transcends yet includes previous circuits. physical → emotional → rational → moral A moral person has fully incorporated their rational, emotional, and physical states of being. The emotional transcends and includes the physical, the rational transcends and includes the emotional and physical, and the moral transcends and includes the rational, emotional, and physical states of being. A moral being is […] Read more »

The Politically Expedient Hoax of Climate Change

“It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.” ~Mark Twain “I want to pause here and talk about this notion of consensus, and the rise of what has been called consensus science. I regard consensus science as an extremely pernicious development that ought to be stopped cold in its tracks. Historically, the claim of consensus has been the first refuge of scoundrels; it is […] Read more »

Moral Relativists Masquerading as Moral Absolutists

Many people mistake multilogical reasoning as moral relativism, and think that monological reasoning is moral absolutism, because multilogical reasoning takes a complex multilayered view of the world coupled with the humility to know there’s always more to learn, while monological reasoning is much more black and white, and appears sure of itself. However, monological reasoning (see definitions further below), which is black and white logic, is often informed by emotionally […] Read more »

Vaccine Injuries, Aluminum Adjuvants, and Aluminum Poisoning

I’m against mandatory vaccinations for philosophical reasons, namely because they have toxic side effects as noted by the list of side effects in the vaccine insert, and because it prohibits the patients right to informed consent, and coincidentally violates the Nuremberg code too.  However, there are also medical reasons for many to choose to abstain from vaccinations, one of which is the aluminum adjuvant used within most vaccines to antagonize […] Read more »

Jordan Peterson: Psychopathic Traits, Antisocial Behavior, & Hedonism

“If you’re not doing very well and you’re around someone who is doing very well, it’s very painful, because the mere fact of their being judges you. And so it is very easy to want to destroy that, to destroy that ideal, so that you don’t have to deal with the terrible consequences of seeing it embodied in front of you. And so part of the reason people want to […] Read more »

“Settled Science” is a Thought-Terminating Cliche Meant to End Rational Discussion

“The science is settled” is self-contradictory, as the whole point of science is to test, dissect, work through, and re-evaluate in an ongoing effort to gain ever more knowledge and understanding of the world around us. Such a contradiction is a red flag revealing biased science. Settled science, which is a thought-terminating cliche meant to end all attempts at meaningful discussion, especially with topics such as vaccinations, global warming/climate change, […] Read more »

Intellectual Self Defense Example #1

Here’s another intellectual self-defense post with accompanying screen shots. This was a conversation I was having with another somewhat fairminded individual in a philosophy group, where the main topic of the group is liberty. An ideologue jumped in and decided to laugh at and ridicule my main two comments (that contained reasonable questions) without actually engaging, formulating an argument, or saying anything else. I chose to call him out for […] Read more »

Putin Responds To Elton John: Respect Majority! Liberals Invented 5 or 6 Genders

I can get behind the main message of leaving children alone, and letting them decide for themselves when they’re old enough, and reasonable enough, to decide such weighty things for themselves. However, there is a subtle distortion coming from Putin’s view, which is the “respect the majority” aspect, as this is mob rule (also known as democracy). The Gnostics saw Jesus as a metaphor for the Divine Logos, also known […] Read more »
