Contrary to some of the vacuous
bullshit you'll find on this page, philosophy
is a noble, no, possibly THE most

it, nearly everything we believe is predicated on someone's philosophical investigations. To debase the mother of all sciences
as a "waste of the taxpayer's money" is to admit barefaced ignorance.
Oh yeah, and philosophy majors
than any other majors
on the graduate exam; mathematics students come in second. Maybe they're doing
PS. I'm not a philosophy
Do philosophy, dipshit.
