a word about philosophers.

when you`ve finishing reading all that you can bear of the ideas of all of the philosophers, what are you going to do then?

impress everyone about how much you can regurgitate?

or are you going to claim that these are your thoughts?

or are you going to think for yourself eventually.

the philosophers think the way they do because thier minds operate that way. they don`t have much choice but to question, synthesise and espouse.......

like hockey players skate and birds fly instead of walk.

and they have the audience of readership or students to support thier position......in fact many eminent philosophers were iconoclasts and gurus to many in thier time.

because people want to know how and what to think.

it saves them the bother of having to do it themselves.

it`s an interesting game.

the position of the philosopher in modern society has seen a decline in popularity because of the rise in the popularity of the new religion......consumerism.

the new preachers make infomercials.

Oh, I didn't know your kids lived with 'her'.

What makes a philosopher is his problems with women the lack of nooky.

He, he, he.

yes they do. she treats them well, for the most part.

your statement about the nooky is a valid one but not entirely true.
