Hello and welcome.

Reason is only a tool.
if constructive debate is allowed to progress, better ideas will ultimately supplant worse ideas.

HI there,

does your reasonable reason include emotional reasons? When do emotional reasons reasonably become bad reasons to reason from?

I find your intro reasonably reasonable.
Perception of reality results in interpretation of reality which results in a deformation of reality.

Is it reasonable to be unreasonable, and if so, for what reason?

Welcome Josh - I have my reasons for my reasoning.

I'll raise you a "Why are you here?"

Not meant to be facetious, mind you.

Depends on how you define reasonable, I suppose........
There is still light in the 'Earthly' darkness. Finding light in the darkness can be more satisfying than merely seeing the glaring light of our sun. It gives us a better understanding of light and a deeper understanding of our universe.

I'm not beating around the bush.

One can take reasonable steps toward an unreasonable goal.

One can take unreasonable steps toward a reasonable goal.

One can take reasonable steps toward a reasonable goal.

One can take unreasonable steps toward a unreasonable goal.

When I state that it depends on on how you define reasonable, are you talking about the steps or the goals? What one group of people defines as reasonable another group (in the same society) could define as unreasonable.

So how are you defining reasonable? In terms of steps, in terms of goals, or in terms of the overall picture?

Are you using an utilitarian form of reasonable? A pragmatic form of reasonable? An idealistic form of reasonable? How do you determine what is reasonable and what is unreasonable?

you actually demonstrated it perfectly now, you were being way too reasonable to be reasonable..
one can only be too reasonable to be reasonable if one uses reason to scrutinize the unreasonable.. such as my stupid question :mrgreen:
