Truth is just a word that attempts to create legitimization by submitting to 'authorities' when in reality 'truth' is only something that individuals themselves can come to understand.

Who you are is contingent on the culture in which you live.

If you were born in a tribe 30,000 years ago, you would not be the same person, and you would not have the same truth.

If you were born into a present day Brazilian tribe, you would not be the same person, and you would not have the same truth.

We don't create anything without shared ideas. We don't create anything that works consistently without a shared truth. That's how science and technology evolved over time, after climbing out of trees.

If you don't need to do anything, you can believe whatever you want. If you don't need help from any one you can do what you want.

If that's the case for you, it sounds great, but people in the world need to share absolute truths in order to survive.

Absolute truths like: if you don't eat, you die, and the general desire to live.

We're not a hive-mind. Culture is still the conglomeration of individuals interacting with each other. But go ahead and do what you continue to do.

You are not on Raddle for positive reasons.

Don't tell me what I'm doing, when you couldn't argue your way out a paper bag.

You are not an authority because you say you are.

Block me if you don't want me calling out your bullshit. Be a good sport.

You're the one acting like an authority and trying to dictate what people should think.

no. asking people to explain themselves is authoritarian. It's common sense in a forum.

What planet are you on?

You disregard anything you don't agree with. You keep doing this and will continue to do this.

You have no idea what to say about anything, now that the jig is up.

You bullshit all day, won't you?

You'll keep up the charade all day, every day. Wow, what a life.

I see you

Greetings conrade!

I am the man behind raddle, he who hath created all of this using my immense fortune, and I am so thankful for your service to the cause!

You are truly a grand example of a radical free thinker! You are the only one who understands that we must shape the next generation to overcome the brutal reality that curses our generation!

Everyone pay attention to this great social justice activist! Learn from them!

Calling out bullshit is what rational-skeptics do.

Mkay?

So get used-to it. You might as well block me, because I don't play this shit.

you haven't said a thing. It's tough shit that I called out your bullshit.

If I see you post bullshit, I'm going to call it.

Don't troll me any more. I'm asking nicely.

Don't even respond. Just ignore me. I don't have time for children trying to find a group identity. Your's is bullshit, and I will call it out every time, so stay away from me.

Be a good sport...with your bullshit.
