"I completely agree that what you deduce and what actually happens may be completely different...but I don't think that means we shouldn't attempt to understand where we are coming from just because we could be wrong. What happens when you…"

Jason Woolsey replied to G's discussion 'Is your trust in science based on faith or based on science?'
"I think you are confusing an argument from Authority with positions that are purposely refutable. It is a mistake to assume that credentials are the important thing here.  The PHD doesn't mean nearly so much as you seem to think it…"

"They most definitely are against each other or at least can be.   Consider this:  You have just met someone and you instantly feel an attraction to them.  You know you like this person but you also know that if you come on as strong…"

"I might argue that even if "I feel" is used as a stand in, that situation would then be interpreted as the speaker backing emotion over logic because the logic itself isn't enough on it's own. It is interesting that your emotion…"

"@Unseen I'm aware that the phrase isn't always literal.  I should have said that this went on for several days of my visit and was not a one time occurrence.  Even then you are correct to say that the meaning of a phrase…"

Unseen replied to Jason Woolsey's discussion 'I feel vs. I think: Basis for decision making'
"In many contexts "I feel" is simply a colloquial way of saying "I think" or "I suppose" or "It seems to me that" and really makes no particular reference to emotion. The word "feel" itself is not…"

"First, don't assume a person using the phrase, "I feel that/like..." has reached their conclusion through feeling-driven thought. That's just a phrase. "I feel like" is a stand-in for "in my opinion," "I…"

Jason Woolsey commented on Elizabeth Williams's blog post 'Losing my friends.'
"2 Thoughts The first is that I think I do this too.  I think I become more militant as time goes on and perhaps I choose not to associate with people who are too religious.  I have many friends and family who are religious (unfortunately)…"

I feel vs. I think: Basis for decision making

Emotion vs. ReasonI once had a conversation with my cousin where she started a lot of her sentences with, "I feel like..." so for instance she would say, "I feel like that answer should have been accepted."This really bothered me and I had to stop her and say, "No one is going to care how you feel in a general conversation especially if reason and rationality are the topics at hand...personally I'm only interested in what you THINK."  I made it clear to her that how she felt was important too…See More

"Haha, I'm a straight guy stuck in Grand Junction Co.  I can relate with a lot of your feelings though I think you win in the difficulty department. Sometimes it helps to just know you aren't alone in the world, you aren't."

Jason Woolsey commented on Joseph Martin's blog post 'Atheism requires a leap of faith?!?!'
"Joseph Martin:  We may have to agree to disagree.   Every time I see someone do something crazy for religious reasons rather than logical ones it serves to reaffirm me.  It may not be a mantra but I remind myself where I stand in…"
