"The Galileo gambit, or Galileo fallacy, is the notion that if you are vilified for your ideas, you must be right. It refers to Galileo Galilei's famous persecution at the hands of the Roman Catholic Church for his defence of heliocentrism in the face of the orthodox Biblical literalism of the day. People use this argument repeatedly in response to serious criticisms that more often than not they just don't understand." #rationality #logic #pub
"is the philosophical idea that only one's own mind is sure to exist. As an epistemological position, solipsism holds that knowledge of anything outside one's own mind is unsure; the external world and other minds cannot be known, and might not exist outside the mind" -- Though the word is a deeper, it is a good word for the wrongness of the idea of "let_people_do_what_they_want_is_the_nice_and_proper_thing_pattern". Just because it is your thought and you feel a certain way, doesn't make it right. #let_people_do_what_they_want_is_the_nice_and_proper_thing_pattern #philosophy #arguments #logic #references #pub
