Welcome. This is the first post from the rationalbrain.

Rationalbrain is dedicated to discourse in the areas of rational and free thinking, and the associated concepts of discovery leading to knowledge.

Should be done in a half a dozen posts or so.

    Yep, commenting on my own post. A bid sad, eh?

    “Rationalbrain”; what a charmingly quixotic notion! Like “Mountain of gold” it seems to have a meaning but in reality it doesn’t exist. Brains might be capable of logical thought but they are not rational; at least mine isn’t and I see no evidence that other human ones are much different. Indeed, peaceable social interaction between humans is only possible because of our instinctive understanding of this fact. I’m pretty sure I’m no more rational than my dog.

    Not meant to be literal, more aspirational, but with a twist. I aspire to it for other people! Especially those who display a total absence of rational thinking (typically not all the time though – only when they are awake).
    I feel I have sufficient of that quality to safeguard me from the obvious bs like religion, alternative medicine and various pseudo-sciences.
