A Game Theory take on the question of God’s Existence.

In an earlier post, I explored What I feel is a more sensible application of Pascal's Wager to God's existence. Now I am attempting one founded in game theory. Goes like this: I like what someone said: I am an apatheist. But my version is: God does not need my belief to exist.

Free Speech is Downstream from Territory. 

REBLOG HERE. I have pondered for a while what Soren Kierkegaard talks about.

Post-post-modern-modernism: The Mistake of Irony; Or, The Ironic Mistake.

Perhaps a little bitty on postmodernism and the, what could be labeled of our current situation, post-post-modern-modernism. Here are a couple links that roughly define the conventional problem I will address in this essay. The first is a little less ridiculous than than the second. The first offers us an argument for why postmodernism is… Continue reading Post-post-modern-modernism: The Mistake of Irony; Or, The Ironic Mistake.
