to Ecclesia National Gathering. Knowing the people who will be there, there should be much to blog about when I return. Frankly I’ve had alot to blog about, just no time. So I look forward to getting back to blogging next week. Before I go, Jason Weaver tagged me on this 1-2-3 meme thing. I am supposed to pick up the closest book, turn to page 123 and copy the first three sentences after the fifth sentence. This is embarrassing, but the closet book to me by about 3 inches (I’m in my office library) is Richard Rorty’s edited volume The Linguistic Turn. Boy I wish I had done this yesterday or early this morning, when my Bible was closer. Here goes:
When the philosopher supposes that his paradox is literally true, it is salutary to refute him. The fact that the authors of the paradoxes nearly always fancy themselves to be right and comon sense to be wrong, and that they then need to have it proved to them that their statements are false, explains Moore’s great importance to philosophy. No one can rival Moore as a refuter because no one has so keen a nose for paradoxes. (Norman Malcolm
I have just been convicted of the way I sometimes waste my time on certain books. After undergoing this humiliation, I shall inflict this on anyone else by tagging 5 more people.
Peace, and Jason… nice to meet you over the internet.
