Where should you turn when faced with a big, philosophical question? The internet, of course. Half philosophy, one third “jokes”, one twelfth science, one twelfth politics, and 100% carefully calculated fractions. That’s the Deep Fought Promise!

Episode 56: Prove It

April 18, 2016

Kia ora, and welcome to an ungodly examination of our potential atheist biases. Yes, in that respect it's classic Deep Fought, but this time we might actually have fulfilled our ostensive goals of philosophical debate, which is definitely not classic Deep Fought. So, making progress then. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Occasional, uncharacteristic meanness from Nick for reasons not fully understood by either party.
  • Part of it could be tiredness, but is that really a fair excuse? You can't get away with murder because you were tired. You should have just seen it in yourself and taken steps to prevent further unconscionable action.
  • I guess a small part of me enjoys feeling a degree of superiority over Michael because he's now experiencing some of the isolation and ostracisation I felt upon first moving to New Zealand. Not merely an 'I was right' sentiment, but a small but legitimately vindictive desire to emphasise to him some of the distance that he innocently and non-vindictively demonstrated to me upon my departure. Isn't that awful? To allow myself to reciprocate hurt with hurt?
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.
