This seems like a distorted version of science.
Though i'm a bit confused by the wording, the part about 'no life' doesn't male much sense to me. Whether there's no life or not has no impact on the rate at which one or the other will fall. It's just a matter of aerodynamics.
Or did I interpret it incorrectly?
I'm assuming he means "isolated from reality."
Oh. Somewhat the same as the "If a tree falls in a forest..." question?
Here's a place that could possibly exist.
I think what he was saying is that somehow our body of knowledge exists only in a vacuum, which wouldn't make any sense because science will discard an idea that does not correspond to the natural world.
Lovely picture. Just to provide context on this statement, it was made during a class on rhetoric. Isn't this a requirement if you want to become a lawyer?
Presumably if you can answer the question about whether rhetoric is required, you don't need the course on rhetoric?
Is that a rhetorical question?
Does this person think that we consider cannon balls and feathers to fall in the same distance in the same time, outside of a vacuum? It is mentioned, and this person states it himself, that this is what occurs in a, "vacuum." I have to mention that we do study things that happen in the real world and things that happen in a vacuum.
The author of that quote does not see the need for studying anything that does not occur visibly in his daily life? That's the best I could do.
Be thankful this guy never learned about special relativity...
