  •  OK, so what do you do with art? (0+ / 0-)

    Paintings, music, fiction, dance, etc.

    A purely rational description of any of these would render them unappetizing, or at best, anthropological curiosities that cater to irrational urges and emotionalisms.

    What say you?

    "Minus two votes for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.

    •  Art makes no false claims. (0+ / 0-)

      It is simply expression, and no more false than a statement of personal emotional state.  Religion is the harnessing of emotion to serve lies - art is the opposite of religion because it is emotion operating on its own terms.  Art and science are two sides of a whole humanity.

      Live by the certainty that nothing can kill you. You'll only be wrong once.
