Deep Puppy Thoughts (Part 158)

I can only assume that the CA/A’s trying to hack into my website disagree strongly with the following:

…Rationalism… is a secularized form of the belief in the power of the word of God…”

“…The separation of state and church must be complemented by the separation of state and science, that most recent, most aggressive, and most dogmatic religious institution…”

“…Unanimity of opinion may be fitting for a church, for the frightened or greedy victims of some (ancient, or modern) myth, or for the weak and willing followers of some tyrant. Variety of opinion is necessary for objective knowledge. And a method that encourages variety is also the only method that is comparable with a humanitarian outlook…”

Paul Feyerabend, ‘Against Method’

‘Hagakure’ and ‘Against Method’: two invaluable reads.

Some things in each may contradict the other. Hopefully, that is.
