really not sure where this belgons so please move if appropriate
I've become quite annoyed with many here on ATS, as im sure many have become quite annoyed with people like me. I wish to seek an understanding
between the inherent seperation of "pictures or it didn't happen"(i realize this phrase is used often as a joke on here) mentality and the "I know
that i know this something, but not by modern scientific standard" mentality. The latter mentality is harder for me to paraphrase.
What i want to know from you guys and gals has to do with why some people want to base all their ideas and beleifs on "fact" and some people want to
base all their ideas and beliefs on "imagination, creativity, and previous and present moment experience."
Im not going to state in this post my personal stance, but if someone replies, asking me to tell them, i will than state which one of these i tend to
back to the point, i want to know why YOU PERSONALLY choose to subscribe to either of the afformentioned schools of thought or anything relatively
close, or if you think a different way let me know as well.
i just chose what i thought to be 2 of the most obvious archetyps here on ATS as an anolougue for the question.
