A brief introduction. I am a freethinker, going to be 60 next year. My interests are philosophy,
science, computers and the humanities. I have been listening to the audio podcasts at point of
inquiry lately and found them to be thought provoking. I enjoy a lively discussion on any topic.

Welcome, I too am fairly new here. I love going over all the older podcast and am going to be a little sad when I’ve heard them all.

Welcome, kkwan.  Glad to have another old fud here.  We and our experience are needed to keep these youngsters thinking more clearly.  LOL

Thanks, Occam. We old fuds need the young and their bright ideas to keep us sharp!
When I was young, there was no internet or CFI….only books and good books were
not easily available. Reading about Occam’s razor in one of Russell’s books was an
Eureka moment 40 years ago. Applying it to cut off superflous entities in arguments
is devastating.
:grin:
