Philosophy Wire: Sea level. Arrogance level.


Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2014-09-09]: A study finds out how much the level of the sea rises due to human activity. We are so arrogant to believe not only that we can change the sea (remember someone some time ago who lashed the sea? how funny did he look?) but that we can also measure the change we inflict on it! (we know all physical phenomena and we know how we can measure change without taking them into account) [1] We are Gods! We are the Best! (who pays attention to bacteria which are far more than we are and which affect the environment much more than we do?) We are Suuuuupeer... hmmmm. Let's leave it at that.
