    Were you born dumb, or did you acquire this trait along the way somewhere?

    Liberal Arts and Humanities: philosophy, the arts, the fine arts, languages, history, literature, abstract science, religuous studies

    As opposed to natural process studies (the sciences): physics, chemistry, biology, geology, mathematics, astronomy, astrophysics, nuclear physics, biochemistry

    Go to the nearest school to where you are at right now - an elementary school, junior high school, high school, preparatory school, college, or university - and ask them the same question, i.e., "Is philosophy a science?"

    Logic is taught by rote memory and practice - no scientific methodology involved. In aesthetics one learns how to best appreciate beauty and works of art - expanding the perceptions and horizons of the mind. In ethics one learns about the various moral belief systems - similar to learning history. Metaphysics is concerned with the perception of what constitutes reality, ontology, teleogoly, cosmology, and epistemology.

    Da! Since when did Wal-Mart start handing out PhDs?

    I made a thread about the topic of 'is philosophy science' here:
