With me the horrid doubt always arises whether the convictions of man’s mind, which has always been developed from the mind of lower animals, are of any value or at all trustworthy. Would any one trust in the convictions of a monkey’s mind, if there are any convictions in such a mind? — Charles Darwin

    Ah, but the monkey mind is all we’ve got, Mike.

    Actually, though, come to think of it I’d trust the convictions (to the extent that I could determine them) of my late black lab’s mind, and I hear primates are brighter.

    Hi Maiden,
    yep the mind is all wev’e got,but like Darwin was saying in that quote, if our rationality is the result of brownian motion plus lots of time then trusting to convictions based on the extent that we could determine them is still building your house in the dark.The dark is equalivient to: convictions outside of a rational process being just as likely to be true as those obtained through the rational process,as the rational process is not based on anything but selection pressure and chance.
    Cheers,
    Mike
