Discuss situations where you've seen this occur (can be about yourself, can be about other people.) Let's try and keep it civil yall; keep your hands to yourselves.

I don't think owls are real because I don't know if I have ever actually seen one for real.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

opinions are overrated


Gozd in gora poj,

uboga gmajna, le vpup, le vkup,
le vkup, le vkup z menoj,
staro pravdo v mrak tulimo,
da se pretulimo skozi to zimo

Any discussion involving art, literature, film, music, etc. Apparently going 'well it's subjective' actually passes as intelligent conversation/analysis these days...

Isn't that to be expected when you're discussing subjects where the subjective values are significantly more important than the objective values?

Come into any discussion in the film thread. We've realized the rhetorical power of appealing to subjectivity all the damn time.

yeah but subjectivity doesn't mean that anything you say is protected by the magical orb of opinion island. It's just an acknowledgment of the fact that your personal experiences throughout life affect how you view the material. In essence, everything's subjective.

Quote by caeser1156

Abstract values are not always so subjective.


The way I've always explained it is by equating it to linguistics. There's no real objective barometer, but it's subjectivity doesn't mean that you can construct a sentence like "Hallo name is, my: Peter" and not be called a dick.

of course it doesn't protect you the reason I responded with that is because he was specifically referring to art, lit, film, music, etc. which is unavoidably subjective in many ways (and in ways much less existential than "everything is subjective.")

anyway it was mostly just a fun play on subjectivity as an objective part of certain experiences

Well, no because I believe exactly the opposite of that.

Essentially, all I'm saying is this: not all opinions are valid, some opinions are in fact, better than others, by virtue of being grounded in reality, based on evidence, and well thought out.

It's one of the reasons I hardly post there anymore.

Right, but we can through the powers of reasoning, logic, knowledge, etc. come to a closer approximation of the truth.

IQ tests done by a team of multiple professionals on me determined I belong to the top 8.5% intelligent people.

this story is only tangentially related:

one time I was in the car with my oldest brother and dad and we were discussing something when I mentioned that dolphins are potentially more intelligent than humans. my dad and brother flipped out. my brother was all "yeah but that's impossible because dolphins can't take IQ tests" and my dad was all "yeah if dolphins are so smart why don't they have cell phones??"

Do you think I should take your word over theirs?

I think you should know that 'dull' has many meanings.

I was implying 'boring' and 'tedious'.

It's a fact that that author is stupid, not my opinion, and clearly any other view is just an opinion, and opinions are wrong, just like skepticism.
