Strawmen

There are times when you strongly believe in the concept of leap of faith. It is interesting how everything gets explained away under the broad umbrella of faith. But when do you take this leap? Retrospectively, everything makes sense. Anyway, that's just the basic line of thought that's been occupying my mind today.

Apart from that, I discovered the Strawman argument today. It is a weirdly happy feeling when one gets to finally define something which has happened to you so succinctly. In this case, it was wonderful to find that term that defines a person's style of argument. I am sure I've come across many people dishing out arguments doused in logical fallacies. Heck, I am sure I've dished a good many out on my own in order to win an argument. But this one person has forever taken words out of context, built a weaker, more vague argument similar to my position which was quite irrefutable and turned it against me. As I was reading the wikipedia entry (yes, you know, your go-to guide on all things new), it was almost like experiencing an a-ha moment after each sentence. As much joy as this whole discovery afforded me, I realised that it came a bit too late. But heck, next time I can call it when I see it! Or just stay away from people too friendly with the strawmen.

The ambitious return

I just noticed that my last post was on the 13th of July. Adding to the alleged horror of it having been Friday, the 13th is the real horror of it having been too long since I've written anything here. I've been trying to keep my FB notes section updated. But somehow social networking is not doing it for me anymore. The only preference for FB was because of my wish to not divulge too much of my personal life on a not-so-anonymous blog. But suddenly I find myself craving for the anonymity. I think I've even written a post about how it is nice to have a blog which mostly random netizens tend to read and keeping it cryptic sort of satiates the detective in me. In order to be good at piecing together a puzzle, I believe, one must also be good at coming up with a puzzle. Anyhow, to make a long story short, I've decided to update this page as frequently as possible. The overzealous being in me says it is going to be at least once a day. But the realist in me just scoffs at the idea. The winner will be announced in a few days or well, you'll just know from the inactivity and the silent scoffing!
