: You are an absolute idiot. Your point is obviously linguistically just as contradictory as "There are no absolutes". Carving out one exception doesn't save relativism. Like holding a mirror up to a mirror, you'll soon realize that absolute number 2 becomes "The only other absolute is that the only absolute is that there are no absolutes." You do the continuing math. I'm sure you'll find it creates an infinite number of absolutes.

: Joe, wondering where these armchair philosophers come from.

Jason, wondering why I and others find wonder in some ideas that others brush off as idiotic. The fact of the infinitely regressing loop doesn't interest you? The fact that no one can say what is reflected in one mirror when it is put parallel to another mirror doesn't interest you?

Jason, wondering how people without wonder can call themselves philosophers.
