Objective truth.

People go to university or college and they pay maybe £30,000 or maybe $100,000 dollars and they do these courses where they’re taught there is no such thing as objective truth. Yeah, exactly: If it’s true that there are no objective truths then it must be objectively true that there are no objective truths, but if it’s objectively true that there are no objective truths, then it is not objectively true that there are no objective truths and so there must be objective truths. The statement “There are no objective truths”, thus refutes itself.

That’s your expensive tertiary “education” shot down. I find myself………..how have we………..Why do we do this to our children? Why do we allow them to off and pay tens of thousands to some pseudo-intellectual quack to teach them things which refute themselves? How did we get here? Why do we allow this? I’m laughing now but I find that the more people I come across with these kind of asinine epistemological positions the more I pity them. These people have been conned out of so much money and also they’ve been let down by an educational system that is supposed to teach them to think critically on some level.
