Actually, it is you who claim the supposedly infallible ability to discern the truth of assertions about reality, and you are calling me off my “high horse,” VictoriousTruther? Recall: “…the ability to ascertain what assertions about reality are correct.”
What I claimed was not some infallible ability on my part, but that if any human being ever had that kind of credibility, it wouldn’t be you or I, but it would have been Jesus. He would be the candidate I would put forward as having any kind of serious credibility with regard to the bigger picture of the meaning of life.
Oh, sure, you can invoke some kind of radical skepticism and rely on that “method” to proclaim every claim anyone makes to be uncertain, and you will rest in the assurance that no claim could ever be 100% correct, but in the end you have absolutely no claim to make with regard to anything meaningful. I’ll take my chances.
What do you mean by “beyond personal subjectivity?” Do you mean my personal subjectivity, or that the claims of Jesus were his personal and subjective claims, or that those around him were being personal and subjective? Every claim is personal and subjective – even yours – because, at ground, each is based upon the limited experiences and the extent of the intellectual ability of the subject making it.
Which, by the way, is not well-promoted by a misspelling of stupid. You really should check your spelling and grammar if you want your points to hit home with your reading audience.
You are very welcome. I always aim to please.
You didn’t take the time to watch the video, did you?
