Why does every idiot human think that whatever silly value judgement they have is somehow proven by science or inherently true?
Why do you think they call them value judgements? Because by their very nature, they’re not true. But they’re also not false. They’re neither because their truth or falsehood is not a scientific question. Science just butts out of this stuff. By the way, many qualitative and comparative opinions, especially about people, fall into this category.
Is that guy over there nervous or calm? This guy here says he’s a nervous wreck. The Clinical Psychologist over here says he’s actually fairly calm. The guy himself, having experienced a lot of anxiety, thinks that, comparatively speaking, he’s calm as an ocean.
So what is he? Nervous as Hell, fairly calm, or placid as a Zen priest?
None of the above!
It’s all a matter of opinion. It’s amazing how few human adults can actually figure out that very basic equation. You would think some 5th graders have probably already figured that out.
