Tidbits

Quote of the Day

Regarding the recent essay on the brain atoms collectively called Prof. Haggard, Mr. Chesterton chimes in:

Similarly you may say, if you like, that the bold determinist speculator is free to disbelieve in the reality of the will. But it is a much more massive and important fact that he is not free to raise, to curse, to thank, to justify, to urge, to punish, to resist temptations, to incite mobs, to make New Year resolutions, to pardon sinners, to rebuke tyrants, or even to say "thank you" for the mustard.
-- G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy



Syllogism of the Day

In a related vein

Major premise:
"You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free."  -- John 8:32

Minor premise:
"There is no such thing as the truth."  -- Scott Rudin, producer of The Social Network

Conclusion
Left as an exercise to the reader.
