PHILOSOPHISTRY

Letters conspire
Words end up sentenced to death
Reality slips the noose

——————————————————————

Sophistry

– A plausible but misleading or fallacious argument.

Philosophy

– Investigation of the nature, causes, or principles of reality, … based on logical reasoning rather than empirical methods.

      • But you craft the words!

        (I didn’t get very far reading your blog last night – a bad storm rolled in here and I had to shut things down quickly. Will try again today. 🙂 )

      • I hope you come across something worth reading. 🙂 We’ve had some pretty stormy weather here too; high winds have taken down many of the leaves and also a branch or two, while walking to the shops has been a bit of a gamble. Stay well. 🙂

      • Oh Ben, EVERY thing you write is worth reading – and more than just once! 🙂

        Sounds like we’re having similar weather. Half the leaves are gone with the wind, lots of drenching rains, etc. A few days ago we had an ear-splitting thunder storm (exciting – gets the adrenaline going!) But best to stay inside, especially with the high winds, so you take care also!

      Well that is my hope and intent, but then we are not all the same. We have different interests, beliefs and viewpoints.
