Doxastic Openness

DOXASTIC OPENNESS “If you are a person of the same sort as myself, I should be glad to continue questioning you: If not, I can let it drop. Of what sort am I? One of those who would be glad to be refuted if I say anything untrue, and glad to refute anyone else who might speak untruly; but just as glad, mind you, to be refuted as to refute, since I regard the former as the greater benefit.” —Socrates in Gorgias


St. Paddy’s Day Wisdom

Just remember that the things we deserve can most likely be traced more to the things we didn’t do than the things we don’t deserve can be traced less to the things we did.


Or is it the things we don’t deserve can most likely be traced less to the things we did than the things we deserve can be traced more to the things we didn’t do.

Or is it both?


Another thin line?

That thin line between believing in what you don’t believe and in believing what you do believe.


Needing it…

You always need it right before you know it.



I think anonymity would be a great superpower to have. Imagine saying anything you wanted and not having to answer for it? 🙂


Second heaven

Janet while cutting up a nice canteloupe: “Eva would be in second heaven right now.”

Ralph: “You mean first heaven? I don’t think it’s second heaven but I could be wrong.”

Janet after 30 minutes: “I just figured it out. Would you like to know?”

Ralph: “Yes, please.”

Janet: “Seventh heaven!”


Babble-on ian thoughts

Is it more or less righteous to get what you deserve for the things you do? Maybe we need to stop asking what we did to deserve what we have and start asking what we didn’t do to deserve what we have.


Size versus time

Ralph: The weight could be worth it.
Janet: The weight should be worth it.


Coulda versus Shoulda

Ralph: The wait could be worth it.
Janet: The wait should be worth it.

Babble – on – Again

In response to a Positive Energy meme

Alma Hammond Jeffers I think the truth needs to start spending time on the wrong people so they will become the right people!


Ralph-Uwe Scherer Therein lies the rub.

While said truth is spending time with the “wrong” people what will become of the “right” people. I mean, “the” truth can’t be in both places at once, can it? 😕

Richard Meyers Bartender? Hey, yeah, I’d LOVE a big cup of black coffee if you’ve got a sec…


Ralph-Uwe Scherer <babble>I think we all may have different “truths” in need of acceptance. And while we all accept these “truths” at different times, I was simply referring to “the” truth, which I believe is much harder to swallow.

There is a thick thin line between “the” truth and the “truth” and the “right” and “wrong” people.</babble>See More

Alma Hammond Jeffers Ok that’s enough. You win Ralph! Lol

Ralph-Uwe Scherer I’m not sure I want to “win” this debate on what constitutes Positive Energy.

I think the “truth” might just have a better chance of being “the” truth coming from the “losing” side.

Also, sometimes Negative Energy is what it takes to get to the good stuff.

I “promise” not to say another word….. Lol


Babble-on Again

If when you start determines when you finish does that mean not starting means never finishing? They say you should always finish what you start. I like to start what they finished.


Negative > Positive

Sometimes it takes negative energy to get to the good stuff. —R-U.S.


What Price Attention?

The price one must pay for paying attention can never be too high. Or is the price one must pay for not paying attention not high enough? After further babbling I believe there is a thin line between the price being too high and the price being too low when it comes to paying and not paying attention. I guess it all depends on what one is paying attention to? 🙂


Where’s Lucifer?



Always remember that one man’s pundit is another man’s ignoramus and vice versa. Too many of today’s premises are being surmised out of existence by those who don’t understand the premises while at the same time too many of today’s surmises are being premised into existence by those who don’t understand the surmises.


Discretion being…

Discretion today helps tomorrow’s misconceptions remain uncommon.


An in progress babble….

I would rather be happy with being unhappy than trying to be happy with being unhappy.

Or trying to be happy with something I don’t know. In other words, being happy with a known has the potential be be far less stressful than being unhappy with an unknown. And in even other words, a man has to know his limitations. 🙂


These days


Just a thought


Truth versus non-Truth

Why is it so easy to disguise the truth as a lie and so hard to disguise a lie as the truth? Or is there a difference?

There is a thin line between disguising the truth as a lie and disguising the lie as a truth.
