Interview with psychology professor, author and psychologist, Dr. Jordan Peterson.
Truth is always subjective, there is no such thing as the absolute truth. Then again, there is no such thing as the absolute evil either, so I guess this professor may carry on staring at the stains on the wall. At least, until they stop staring back at him.
Truth is always subjective? So nothing is objectively true? You are using the name ZonkeyBalls on Amirite. Your avatar is wearing glasses. You are looking at these words on a digital screen. Are those statements not objectively true?
This is my third profile on the site, both of the previous two were also Zonkey -themed. Therefore, there could be a certain amount of confusion, if someone were to refer to one of my previous profiles, thinking I was a copycat of myself, instead of just thrice the human being I was born to be. That, itself, makes me a brand new holy trinity on its own.
I might be wearing contact lenses or perhaps I have had laser surgery on my eyes. The picture is merely a confusing arrangement of photons, now in digital form. I am looking at your words, but if so chose to, I could also use a synthesized voice to read them aloud.
Is this answer an absolute answer, the truth and all of that is holy or is it merely a conjecture based on what you think I'm saying?
:) You are using the name ZonkeyBalls on Amirite, and the name you used before doesn't change that. What you actually look like is irrelevant to the fact that your avatar is clearly wearing glasses, and you yourself acknowledge that you are looking at these words on a digital screen regardless of what other options are available. Face it Zonk, there are objective truths. I only presented 3, think how many there must be.
My avatar is using a mind control technique, embedded as an integrated part of the tattooed glass-imitation pattern within my frontal head area, also known as the human face. What you see is merely a psychological trick, studied both on wolves and bears.
I'm actually using SllabYeknoz as my username, but you are reading it backwards, as you were instructed in the beginning of this exercise. Triggering the hypnotic response is relatively easy, when you are already aMazed.
I am not looking at your words, in fact I'm currently looking at a remote control. Wondering, if I need to change the batteries soon... Can't remember, when was the last time I did...
You said "truth is always subjective," but if you really believe that, then you know that statement is also subjective and may or may not be true. Being certain that everything is uncertain is a form of certainty.
I reject the reality and substitute it with my own - one with no rules. Sopwith Camels and dragons vs Godzilla riding the Batmobile. I rule here now.
In other news, I'm uncertain about uncertainty. Heisenberg might have had a screw loose in his head.
"Should I watch all of the link before answering?"
Probably, it's only a few minutes long.
I'm pretty sure you're not, but thanks for participating. : )
I think the good professor uses a lot of words to make his point - but I think it's valid.
For our Humanist friends that contend that 'there is no absolute truth. Truth is relative."; Please note the logical inconsistency>
"Truth is relative." This is an absolute statement implying truth is absolutely relative. Besides positing an absolute, suppose the statement was true and "truth is relative." Everything including that statement would be relative. If a statement is relative, it is not always true. If "truth is relative" is not always true, sometimes truth is not relative. This means there are absolutes, which means the above statement is false. When you follow the logic, relativist arguments will always contradict themselves.
