Hey look everybody!! Blinken's smarter than Descartes!
Tom's like the Henny Youngman of the board: always there with a one-liner. They never inspire laughter, but it's consistent, and that's worth something.
Anyway, I already had this Descartes/God discussion for like five pages in some other thread once and I don't want to do it again. Tom, get me out of this.

I get what your saying, and Descartes is saying. It was the christian aspects of his writing that really got under my skin the same goes for Kierkegaard, they seemed to me to try stuff Christian ideas into their works. Like they couldn't detach from the Christian belief structure to begin with.
I just read this whole thread. I'm going out for a smoke now.
Tom, I think your one liner's are entertaining.
so it's not intellectual to question someone else's philosophy?
The differance is, it has been a long while since i read any Descartes, but he started by saying he was starting from nothing. And worked his philosphy from the ground up. But he didn't start with nothing because of his christian beliefs.
pseudo = fake
fake = not real
this is not a real intellectual conversation.
It may have sounded like I was refuting it, but that was just an artifact of my writing.
