SO, WHY STUDY PHILOSOPHY OTHER THAN FRAUD OF SELF AND OTHERS?
—“So are you saying that rigorously interpreting a text is by definition pilpul and therefore bad? How do you read philosophy then?”— postmodernist.
(a) Is that what I am saying? And (b) Why would anyone read either theology or philosophy in the age of math, logic, sciences, economics, law, history, and literature – each of which is less vulnerable to fraud and confirmation bias, than sophism (philosophy) and magic(theology)?
(c) because the only reason to do so is to justify perpetuate a fraud, commit a falsehood, justify a bias, or admit one’s incompetence at developing sufficient mindfulness (agency) to leave fantasy fiction literature behind.
(d) the reason to write philosophy and theology is precisely to avoid math, logic, science, economics, law, biography, and history. …
(e) There is no other reason to do so – which is why Abrahamic Theology, Platonic(literary) philosophy, their conflation in the medieval era, and continental reconstruction after anglo empirical falsification of it, was constructed.
