False and Unlivable Approaches to Knowledge
INCOHERENT and UNLIVABLE Attitudes and Philosophies about Knowledge
1. There is no such thing as truth. (Is that true?)
2. It is impossible to know anything with certainty. (Do you know that with certainty?)
3. All I know is that I don’t know anything. (Now you are claiming a positive fact—namely, that don’t know anything)
4. I don’t know anything by faith, but everything by science and reason. (Do you know that you know this through science and reason, or through some other means? Do you recognize that science relies on presuppositions which cannot be proven empirically [that the world exists; that I am not a brain in a vat or all reality is a dream or all my memories were implanted in my head]).
5. I don’t need anything but science. (Science never told you this, scientism [the philosophy that puts scientific knowledge above everything] informs you to think this way).
