I was going to make a black joke, because everyone else is going to do it anyway

But I can't really come up with anything

So my joke is going to be nonexistant
like a black father

Metaphysics would be more like looking for a black cat in a dark room by figuring out how the room would look if you could see, and then searching the most likely places.

Theology would be saying "I know there is a cat here somewhere, and these are the things I perceive that point that out to me - I don't need to find the cat to know it is here."

Science would be groping in said likely places and making a mental tally of "here" or "not here." for future reference of finding cats.

In order for analogies to be actual analogies they need to keep all variables the same save the manipulated one (the belief system in this case). Adding that there is a flashlight ruins said analogy.

Also, science, metaphysics, and theology are all branches of philosophy, so there is technically philosophy answers the with the other three rather than by itself.

'Science is like being in a dark room and looking for a black cat using a flashlight.'

Without a comma this has a totally different meaning

Cats can't use flashlights

Thats because they don't need flashlights when they can use eye lasers.

Science philosophy and metaphysics all go hand in hand.

If only you could use a flashlight and find a metaphysical cat. I think this post was more about each of the three individually, than whether they go hand in hand.

science and philosophy don't, the only real thing they share in common is the predominant use of logic in forming ideas. Philosophy and metaphysics are essentially the same thing though

mfw reading this. Philosophy is science and nobody gets it.

Philosophy is not all about smoking pot and sitting in drum circles. You gotta go to class SOMEtimes...

I went to a lecture yesterday titled "philosophy and quantum physics" and the philosophers understood the **** out of the lecture and the scientists didn't.

Yep people should stop judging out of asses...

Philosophy and logic are nothing like what the average Joe thinks about them, they are hard boiled science.

Agreed.    
   
People think philosophy is really easy because a phil 101 class was the easiest class they ever took and the teachers said "there is no one answer, all your ideas are good."   
   
And then phil upper division classes are the hardest on campus and the teachers say "these are not good answers, all your ideas are crap."

Exactly.

And thank god that i am studying psychology and not philosophy or logic(only passed them in 1 semester), i still don't a thing about them except that math is easier and if i had to chose between math and logic i would chose path. At least there is right or wrong and its not like.. well i can't compare with anything but i still am horribly confused like i just went out of spin cycle.
