You seem to know a lot about Gettier, Kant and Godel. Have you had any formal philosophy education? Would you say you agree with the conclusions of Gettier? if not, why not?
Firstly, no I've not had any formal schooling in philosophy though I do tend to read alot. With respect to Gettier I agree with him on the concept of justified true beliefs since this goes back to epistemology i.e; the study of knowledge a belief can be logical yet unjustified, since it cannot be falsified for any practical reasons, this is going back to the ideas of Karl Popper. So in short I do agree with Gettier.
Here is a post I made for further reading on this:http://www.councilofexmuslims.com/index.php?topic=12881.msg359099#msg359099
I like Kant's ideas of predicates and his critique of pure reason, with respect to Godel his incompleteness theorems established limitations of all but the most trivial axiomatic systems capable of doing mathematics. So even theory dependent truths have a limitation.
If you are in a hospital, and desperately need something from friends or family. And you call them, they say, you are bluffing and hang up. What will you do?
I don't keep non-dependable friends - assuming that did happen and they thought I was bluffing, I would get the nurse/doctor to talk to them I would ask them to ring into the hospital and confirm it. All else failing, I would ask a visitor in the hospital by giving him/her a financial incentive.
Why do you sometimes try to provoke one or two of the female members on here? Is the Q right in that you get some kind of masochistic pleasure when they retaliate?
Sometimes I do it for the lulz, other times it is because I am genuinely annoyed by them. I only get masochist pleasure from some of the ladies on here.

You do seem really well read. What courses have you studied at uni (I remember reading somewhere you've been studied a few courses over the years)?
In the early days I studied law, though dropped out and never completed it - I was about 19 - 20 at the time I was young and having fun. Then I did IT (CG) Text Processing - distinction. Then I did courses here and there, and finally this year I was hoping to get into university to do Psychology with Criminology at a degree level but I applied too late, wasn't accepted was told to do a year 0 foundation just to brush up on the basics. Now I am looking to go back to Uni in Jan 2013.

Do you really find rich people superior to others or do you just state this opinion because you find the outraged reaction to be funny?
Superior is not a word I would use, but I do believe in a class system.
^^ Related to this, do you really think poor people should be prevented from having children, like you once said?
Yes, those living in abject poverty should be prevented from breeding until their situation improves. Also I think incentives should be offered to the poor, i.e. money given to them if they opt into a program where they become infertile, and don't have children, we are living on a finite planet with finite resources, and we need to deal with this problems.
And if you're saying these things to just create controversy as z10 asked, is there any chance you can reign that in? You don't do yourself, or your reputation, any favours when you do make the occasional comment like this.
I don't believe in popularity contests - if someone can give a viable and logically sound argument against any of my controversial positions, I am happy to concede.
Is KT going to reply to any of these questions?
