The Downside of Foundationalism

René Descartes is sitting in a café not far from the the intersection of Faith and Culture.

He’s just finished a cup of his favorite Surabaya Johnny Half-Caf Arabica-Cappucino Blend.

The waiter asks him if he’d like another.

Descartes says, “I think not.”

And he disappears...

The only thing frustrating about your blog is that you don't post often enough. I haven't yet figured out why I enjoy your rare offerings, but I do. Keep up the good work, and hurry every chance you get

I expect that real humor is hard to do. Making fun of your opponents is easy, but it doesn't really count.

I’m flattered to hear that anyone would wish that I would post more often to this blog. No one is more frustrated by my lack of ability to do so than I. But thanks so much for reading and commenting!

Ah, bad logic man, bad logic! Descartes would never stand for it.

I think therefore I am.
DOES imply
I am not therefore I do not think.
But DOES NOT imply
I do not think therefore I am not.

Logic, it's all logic: what DO they teach them in these schools?
