Debating: Beating Thoroughly. Why Convictions Can Be Worse Than Lies.

Con-viction is what comes with victory… Thus after the victory. A conviction is not conducive to debate, because it assumes victory has been achieved, whereas debate assumes the battle is on, and will be thorough. Convictions are by definition not to be debated… By the way, debate is how ideas, and thus intelligence arise…

Intelligence comes out of debate, and debate means to beat out thoroughly (de-battuere) [1]. The best science is best because it beats alternative facts and theories into total and complete submission, explaining not just the truth, but why the enemy is false, fake and erroneous (for example Euclid forgot about Non-Euclidean geometry established before him; Aristotle omitted the existence of friction; Galilean Mechanics did not know about electromagnetism and its speed of light, a local constant; Newton confused the impetus/momentum of Buridan with energy, as Emilie du Chatelet showed).

Fanatics Don’t Know Any Better. Liars Do.

All and any greater and bigger truth started as a violent war, and always will. This is why top thinkers are generally most hated (although half-top types can be loved by the authorities and thus the commons, as long as they are silly enough, and innocuous looking, for example Einstein…).

We can see this with COVID: all health authorities should switch to one shot vaccination, as it is pretty obvious that the mask masquerade is making the situation worse. All this can be easily scientifically justified, but those who confuse the scientific methods with yapping and howling as coyotes do, all together now, become immediately violent when this is claimed (and will not listen to the scientific arguments). Hey, it is a question of the (expert) establishment keeping the multitude under the most stupid form…

Want Better Thoughts? Prepare For A Bigger War!

    Truth thrives on the momenta of ongoing contestations, and wilts from the inertias of convictions. — SoundEagle

      Very nice… I would suggest not pluralizing (sic) inertia… I myself often pluralize some singulars, but it often just make people think I have poor English…

        Dear Patrice,

        Thank you for your compliment and suggestion. Is it not somewhat strange or inconsistent that momentum (p = mv) can be pluralized but not inertia (I = mr² or I = L/ω) cannot?

        I would be delighted if you could kindly visit my newest post and submit a comment there, as I am very curious to know what you think or make of it. The post is entitled “Misquotation Pandemic and Disinformation Polemic: Mind Pollution by Viral Falsity” and published at

        Happy New Year to you! May you find 2021 very much to your liking and highly conducive to your learning, writing, thinking and blogging!


        • Patrice Ayme Says:

          Will visit your site, but considering an unarmed woman who didn’t obey orders to fall back was shot in the neck in the US Capitol, I may write something on this first.
          Same to you about 2021…. Can’t wait for that vaccine…

          Wow Soundeagle, I am so impressed no quick comment can rise to the level of that work of art and thought… How do we fight bad information? By BEING RUTHLESSLY HONEST. And extremely well informed. But then, that’s a full time job… as is the case of yours truly. Of course, my own situation is (very) special, and hard to duplicate.

          However the first requirement is to learn to love the art of debate…

          I got nearly banned from Facebook because of a succession of articles I wrote, using the latest science (Fall 2020) to show that the mask masquerade contributed to the COVID epidemic. My references and reasonings were all scientific (2020 research from Nature, Science, CDC, etc…) In toto, I have 10,000 words on that subject alone… You should have heard the screaming… Aside from the validity and public service of what I wrote, the outcry per se was an interesting object of study…

          Now one can get banned from Twitter for quoting Trump… the vengeance of the plutocrats… Lies are the ecology plutocrats prefer and harvest… Hence the pandemic of lies…

          Anyway more later after I study more what you wrote…

        Please forgive my typo. The second sentence of the first paragraph in my previous comment should be as follows:

        Is it not somewhat strange or inconsistent that momentum (p = mv) can be pluralized but inertia (I = mr² or I = L/ω) cannot?


What do you think? Please join the debate! The simplest questions are often the deepest!
