My Quotation Of The Day

Sun Jul 04, 2004 4:13 pm

Perfect for a forum:

"...philosophers have to regain their nerve to trust in the use of human reason. It does seem intellectually dishonest, even cowardly, to refuse to make distinctions in the name of tolerance. While accepting that people may disagree, we need not treat every position as equal, every argument as valid." Richard John Neuhaus

Frankly I think it's sheer brilliance.

Discuss.

Who decides what arguments are valid? Who decides what positions are equal? The quote, although a good one, is not something that a truly intelligent person would live by.

My quote for the day
"Ryan, how about you stop hitting on girls that look like they have eating disorders?"
(I like skinny girls)
