Every piece of information in this thread (or anywhere really) lies somewhere on the BS scale 100% BS........0% BS... This is the (self proclaimed) Information Age... and yet most of the information we have is probably over 10% BS and very little other than basic information is 0% BS.... (I - is an example of a fact, in some fashion or another, I exist. I am Intelligent - is an example of at least 99% BS, because most of what we accept as knowledge is in fact BS.) What is the BS scale? It is the amount of absolute FACT there is in information... almost everything we know is theory - or is based on other theories... They have the "Scientific Method" to 'prove' theories, but almost always it uses other theories as a basis and use other theories to prove them. Facts, Beliefs & Opinions are not necessarilly BS... don't get me wrong... but some of them have no basis in provable truth... To say something is a fact, is saying a lot (to me)... because you're saying there is irrefutable evidence of it which you can show me if need be. Is this a fact: "a Magic Deck comprised entirely of 60 Forests cannot win a game"? Is this a fact: "I am agnostic"? Is this a fact: "God is dead"? Is this a fact: "I believe in lies"? The longer I live, the more I realize that most of what we know is wrong... the penultimate truth is that there is no penultimate truth. Only what we believe to be true - today. I really thought I knew everything 10 minutes ago, but now I see that I was a fool, just as 10 minutes from now I will see that I am a fool now. That is the circle of lies for us all.
