Right?One person's approach to a certain issue might be wrong but the same approach in different situations can be correct?

I think you can even go as far as to take the "almost" out of that rule.

"In life, there are always exceptions to every rule." Sounds better, heh?

So what is the exception to this rule? That it doesn't have an exception?

Just watched the movie "Knowing" with Nicholas Cage, and it talks about the two opposing ideologies of determinism and randomness.

In a purely deterministic world, there would be no such thing as exceptions. Any anomaly is simply the result of an undiscovered law or flawed science.

This post is arguing in favor of randomness, which is portrayed in the movie (maybe unfairly) as being a world void of purpose.

Maybe the purpose is surprise, Adaptation (another Nicholas Cage movie), evolution etc.

Is the search for the ultimate formula to describe the world a futile pursuit? There will always be exceptions. Can we ever really know what will happen Next(Nicholas Cage)?

We're all just Ghost Riders looking for National Treasure.

Seriously, check out Knowing I liked it a lot. Psychics, aliens, and destruction of the world.

I agree. You can without a doubt, take "almost" out. It is all about perception

If a person sees something, what does the blind person pick up on? Same can go with the deaf. But, I know first hand deaf people, one side of the family is deaf, can pick up vibration.

Actually, all the senses are interpetted differently by each person.

Mental health, may take a roll as well. As will different speices. Dogs see only black and white, no wonder why they don't stare at the rainbows.
