What do we know? I mean, really, truly KNOW?
For to truly, 100% know something you have to experience it yourself.
Being told something or reading something and believing it to be true - we'll, that's second hand knowledge. You're not really sure it's true.

The bible is knowledge written down by thousands that one believes to be true. All those thousands could be wrong...or right.
The school books and scientific magazines - also knowledge written down by thousands of people. In reality there is no difference.

Unless you actually tested every single theory, every single physical law (and used your own tools for it) then everything you have to go on is assurances from other people.
"but there's the scientific method, the peer reviews" ..."But it can be tested!" - you might say
Unless you did the test yourself, then it's nothing more than believing some people who say that that other people are right.
If it has the property that it can be tested, but that property isn't used, then for all intents and purpses it is as if that property never exists.
After all, if I make a cake, and tell you it's delicious, but you never get to taste it..why should you believe it is delicious?

All of this kinda makes sense tough, since we all HAVE to take some things at face value, either believe them to be true or not, at some point.
you got to have some initial values, opinions to use for filtering and analyzing others.

It's hard to believe how easy it is to insult some people these days. Is it just me or are some people REALLY sensitive? Just a few days ago I had a discussion on a forum about womans right and I used the term weaker/fairer sex. Turns out one woman was very much insulted by this. I can somehow see how can the word "weaker" be found insultive (regardless how true it is), but she was also insulted by the word "fairer"???
Apparently to her it references the paleness of women who spent their days in the house. This political correctness is getting downright redicolous. You can't even question some things or tell jokes without being accused of racism or antisemitism or things like that.
Now I've always been a rather blunt person - I speak my mind and generally don't sugarcoat things. I call em as I see em, and while I like jokes that make fun of others(up to a point), I also like making jokes on my account - equal treatment, right? So WTF? Why don't these people get a sense of humor and remove that 10ft poll from their behind, cause I sure as hell won't be walking on egshells simply because they are way too sensitive.
One thing I figured out a long time ago - there are people who go out looking for a fight. there are also people who go looking for thing that could offend them. Either way, the best way to deal with both is to steer clear of them, since reason only rarely works.

Teško je povjerovati kako je lagano danas uvrijediti neke ljude. Jel se to meni samo čini ili su neki ljudi postali previše osjetljivi? Evo prije par dana sam na jednom forumu raspravljao o ženskim pravima i upotrijebio frazu slabiji/ljepši/nježniji spol, i to je uvrijedilo jednu ženu. Pa nekako i mogu shvatiti da bi izraz slabiji mogao uvrijediti nekoga (ma koliko istinito to bilo), ali je ona bila uvrijeđena i s ovim "ljepši". Njoj to vuče reference na blijedi ten koji su žene imale kad nisu gotovo nikada izlazile iz kuće.
Ova politička korektnost postaje totalno poremećena. Nke stvari se više ni ne mogu dovoditi u pitanje niti vicevi pričati bez da te netko ne optuži za rasizam ili antisemitizam ili slično.
Ja sam uvijek bio jako izravan osoba - kažem što mislim i obično se ne trudim to lijepo pakirati. Iako volim viceve na tuđi račun (do neke granice ukusa), isto tako se volim šaliti i na svoj račun - jednako ophođenje, zar ne? Pa koji K? Bilo bi vrijeme da ti ljudi razviju smisao za humor i izvuku tu štapinu iz stražnjice, jer ja ne namjeravan hodat po ljuskama jaja samo da ne bih njih uvrijedio.
Jedna stvar koju sam odavno shvatio - postoje ljudi koje izađu na ulicu tražeći borbu. Isto tako postoje ljudi koje samo traže nešto što bi ih moglo uvrijediti. Najbolje je izbjegavati obje grupe, jer razum na njih rijetko djeluje.

Eto, ne da mi se ponovo pisati stvari koje sam govorio milijun puta, pa bi bio red da ih jednostavo postavin na blog..da ne bi zabioravio, da se lako podsjetim a i da lako referenciram neke stvari... pa i na forumu linkat samo blog.
Al pitanje je oću li ga pisat na hrvatskom...znam ogroman broj ljudi oz svijeta...vjerovatno na engleskom.
Živi bili pa vidili.
