    Now its time to nuke this thread....

    as R.A.W. said:

    "I DO NOT BELIEVE ANYTHING

    This remark was made, in these very words, by John Gribbin, physics editor of New Scientist magazine, in a BBC-TV debate with Malcolm Muggeridge, and it provoked incredulity on the part of most viewers. It seems to be a hangover of the medieval Catholic era that causes most people, even the educated, to think that everybody must "believe" something or other, that if one is not a theist, one must be a dogmatic atheist, and if one does not think Capitalism is perfect, one must believe fervently in Socialism, and if one does not have blind faith in X, one must alternatively have blind faith in not-X or the reverse of X.

    My own opinion is that belief is the death of intelligence. As soon as one believes a doctrine of any sort, or assumes certitude, one stops thinking about that aspect of existence. The more certitude one assumes, the less there is left to think about, and a person sure of everything would never have any need to think about anything and might be considered clinically dead under current medical standards, where absence of brain activity is taken to mean that life has ended."


    Read the rest here: The Robert Anton Wilson Website - Cosmic Trigger Volume I: Final Secret of the Illuminati

    If you havent read cosmic trigger yet....pick it up now! lol

    dude changed his life game by removing the word "Is" completely from his vocabulary. Instead of saying "the grass is green", you can say "the grass appears green to me" and it eliminates the whole argument of certainty.

    solid post... my problem with the whole "believe in nothing" shit is that its really just a way to be agnostic like the rest of us intellectuals but in the process become an annoying faggot and correct everyones common usage of "is" by ranting about the shortfalls of science and current perception.

    hes basically saying "well.. i dont believe anything to be 100% accurate at any time so im going to just note that every chance i get by forsaking commonly used terms to describe understood occurances for the more pretentious "appears".

    i would get unbelievably annoyed with someone like that.

    "this burger is fucking delicious."

    "no chris.. it only APPEARS that way."

    yea, fuck that.

    nah, it was written back in the 70's with some revisions during the 80's/90's. Wilson covers everything in 1 book. Its basically an autobiography of him.

    It covers some crazy shit like:

    Why humans instinctively remember and where they came up with the idea for:
    Leprecauns
    Spock from star trek
    fairys

    Effects of drugs on perception:
    Caffeine
    Weed
    LSD
    Opiates
    cocaine
    etc

    Self induced mind change

    Language, and how we use it.

    Alester crowley

    Aldous huxley

    Religion

    Government conspiracies(briefly) who shot jfk? shit like that

    Syncronicities. odd coincedences that he tries to find the meaning for like the #23.

    His job as an editor at playboy. dealing with timothy leary's lsd shit with the government

    his own family life.

    But the book has to be one of(if not the) best book ive read

    Nah, in that case you have vegetarians saying "why are you eating that shit?"

    edit*** or you could say "this burger tastes fucking delicious"


    lol, you know its more than the word you replace it with. its about the fact of claiming certitude over something that can be interpreted in different ways. in that case, just explaining how you perceive it is better off than saying something "IS" something else.

    ^^^Fuck, I just merked myself by using "is"...removing "is" from vocabulary is FUCKIN IMPOSSIBLE :funny:

    This is on point as fuck


    And John Gribbin is a G. I read his book "The Scientists" a few months ago, which was an excellent run down on all the past great scientists, that actually kept it real.



    I couldn't agree more on the fault in the on dimensional belief system. I have also expressed it many times on this site, arguing with people like Eyerate, who wishes to think I am a Socialist simply because I strongly agree with the bailouts of the banks.

    It's counter intuitive to follow an ISM as if it is a religion in itself.

    When a belief system begins to dominate your logic and common sense, which happens more than not, it becomes a problem.
