In the modern world we are assailed each and every day by opinions disguised as fact. The talking heads from the realms of religion, science, politics, and the media claim to posses knowledge. In this gladiatorial arena of argumentation too often the victor is the loudest voice, not the strongest argument. The mob chooses the views that live and die on the basis of their heart, their fears, or their pain. Rarely do they include their head. Why worry about the great riddles of life when there are so many unwatched cat videos? Having grown weary of this lifestyle of panem et circenses, I long to journey back across the Mediterranean to a land of logos and arete. If you share this sentiment, I implore you, continue reading and aide me in this quest.
“The skeptic does not mean him who doubts, but him who investigates or researches, as opposed to him who asserts and thinks that he has found.”
I have created this site in pursuance of that goal. I wish to reinvigorate the project of Socrates and search for true, infallible, indubitable, knowledge. Each week I will post a new video to the Academy rigorously testing those beliefs that are claimed by some to be worthy of the title knowledge. If you have any beliefs you find defensible under such scrutiny please submit them below. If you have an argument that you wish to strengthen through debate, send it in. If you have an article that you find particularly convincing or distasteful and I shall do my best to find it's flaws.
