Someone on xanga made a pulse and linked to an article titled “Bertrand Russell’s Greatest Paradox was His Faith”. If you don’t know bertrand russel was a very well-known philosopher and is perhaps equally well known as an atheist, so this is a bit of a dig. What was his faith?
To quote the article:
“He was a man who placed absolute faith in the doctrine of uncertainty.”
He had blind faith in skepticism. Of course, that makes perfect sense.
I just had to blog about this briefly, as it is (as I said on the pulse comment section) a prime example of how people can spin and distort and twist anything into anything else, even the exact opposite (and some people will still swallow it whole – I didn’t say that but I was tempted to).
Here is the BS article if anyone wants it (though I don’t know why you would).
