Enlightenment Defended
Politics • Spirituality/Belief • Culture
Enlightenment Defended will repel the dark nihilism of “post-truth”, woke culture, identity politics, and political correctness. It will catalyse the bright flame of the enlightenment —liberty, reason and progress.

Enlightenment Defended will create an open realm of vigorous philosophical debate through animation, documentaries, poetry, humour, music and myth. People are many-sided in both apprehension and enjoyment.

On Being "Mildly Repressed". Part 3.

The phrase "fact-checking" suggests some arcane art or method for settling what is and what is not true. However, there is no method of provably and systematically sorting true from false accounts. You can’t even assert of candidate news items “this item is probably false” and “that item is probably true” without invoking surreptitiously conjectural assumptions that aren’t themselves probabilistic. The much-touted Bayesian inductivism relies on hidden background conjectures about populations. As Xenophanes said: "All knowledge is but a woven web of guesses". So, despite their arrogant pretension, FB and Google are no exception to this epistemological limitation.
