    Nietzsche believed in purpose. And his purpose was to overcome syphilis while giving it to women who wouldn't matter.

    Ah yes, May 6th has rolled around again: Random Arbitrary Comments Day.

    Thanks to very controversial local legislation, the only non sequiturs I can contribute to the celebration are items like "Tom Boles has an asteroid named after him" and "Susette La Flesche Tibbles was born in Nebraska in the year 1854."

    Philosophy's main export is nonsense.

    The best philosophers were known for their nonsense.

    More. Their ability to make educated people scratch their heads

    Hmmmm... Time as a social construct. An intriguing concept. In which first off I believe all concepts are real because the mind which creates them exists in reality.

    To say social reform belongs to history just as well as today's concept of time. A statement which is resolved in ipso facto logic. Which has already been stated in the original post

    Of course philosophy gets people to scratch their heads . Because philosophy questions .

    And yet BB ( big-bang theory of our Universe is based on a philosophy of nothing ) .

    Nonsense of course .

    Philosophy is in all science , P.H.D , doctor of philosophy .

    It seems that many have forgotten the importance
    of philosophy involved in the ologies of science .

    ...and how much of what you were taught is actually true? How much stands the test of time? Are you telling me what you were taught will remain true FOREVER? Can you really tell me that in 1,000,000,000,000,000 years a theory will not come along to disprove it??

    Evolution of the theory of evolution confirms evolution.

    Isn't advocating rape on social media a crime in U.S law?

    Then I presume you are uneducated.

    Why would Socrates defend a murderer?
