The Force is Strong With This One
This sounds like a trained philosopher. Very interesting. Of course we may challenge the validity of the premise---is evolution true, is there a God?---but I think this way lies the intellectual illness, paralysis of analysis.parallel said:The trouble with this form of thinking is that it's not really considering the premise being a false dichotomy, ...janosabel said:Forge asks, in his/her signature, "How to reconcile the irreconcilable"?
My suggestion, as a born (but untutored) philosopher, is go Meta---the superordinate level of meaning where contradictions dissolve.
Example: Evolution versus Creationism. No problem: Evolution is God's way of creating.
...Though I'm not sure what you mean by 'go Meta', but the control system is betting that we somehow seek out the golden middle ground between two extremes. Whether one extreme is lying and the other is not or both are lying and wrong, making an average of that will result in a wrong either way.
"Meta" as in mathematics a la Godel's theorem. Or. in layman's terms and reversed, islands look separate things but they are one on the seabed.
I also agree that these difficulties of reading "reality" is well exploited by the "control system" (if I guess your meaning right).
