LOL LOL LOL a hundredfold!!!!:D:D:D

....are you playing Jeopardy? :confused:

Did you mean double jeopardy?

This is what I call living way beyond your means. Asking ten more questions when the other ten haven't been satisfactorily answered. Sometimes even ten unanswered questions can be enough to start a global depression. Go and consult your local psychologist for more advice.:D

Another foreclosure is on its way. That's the default response to people who ask too many questions.
 
@ Salty

Check out the first question: "What is truth?".... Pilate asked that to Jesus PBUH didn't he? The funny thing is, even Jesus PBUH just ignored him (lol).

If you're referring to John 18:38, I'd say he wasn't recorded as having given an answer. Instead Pilate goes out to tell the crowd that he has no reason to convict him.

But assuming he did ignore him, I'd like to say . . . typical politicians . . .

Jesus was always a bit of an enigma.

1. What is truth?
2. What is a fact?
3. What is evidence?
4. What constitutes no evidence?

Evidently, these things hold different meanings to different people. Even some "scientific" types of my acquaintance have at times shifted the meanings of such as these as it suited their needs of a moment. So I can only speak for myself, knowing full well that not all agree in principle or practice. Truth to me is reality. If it is real, it is true. A fact is a reaction to or a causal agent of truth / reality. Evidence is that fact that can be recreated or demonstrated. "No evidence" cannot be proven because as we know absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. Having said this, it is also imperitive not to abuse this axiom.

5. What is a delusion?
6. What is ego?

Ego is evidence of the self, the personality. In Freudian terms, the ego is bookended by the SuperEgo and the Id, the SuperEgo roughly equating with the moral center and the Id roughly equating with the animal or hedonist desire center. The Ego is informed by both and draws its conclusions and acts accordingly. Delusion is when these (SuperEgo, Ego and Id) are deliberately misinformed either by disease process, injury or outside influence resulting in an inaccurate subjective assessment of reality.

7. What is an archetype?
8. What is social conditioning?
10. What is indoctrination?

Indoctrination is another way of saying "training" or "teaching." Social conditioning is training/teaching/indoctrination that is culturally and societally based. Archetypes are those symbols that hold "generally specific" (or "more-or-less" specific) meanings to all within that given culture or society.

9. What is a placebo?

Placebo is used to demonstrate the power of one's mind to impact on one's perceived reality, it demonstrates the power of belief as applied in one's physical "universe."

It's good to have you back around, TAO.
