Random Observations

Philosophy. I have a real problem with philosophy. What did it ever achieve? Granted – it’s an excellent example of working through a problem logically but then – it never gives an answer to the problem. The early Greek philosophers were able to figure out everything that a ‘God’ would and should do; they were able to figure out what a ‘God’ would not and should not do. But they were never able to figure out if there is a God. Simplistic of me? Perhaps. But you’re going to have to convince that I’m wrong. Go ahead. I’ll wait …
