Black and White

Right and wrong. Left and right. Up and down. Hot and cold. Fire and water. New and old. Happy and sad. Fish and fowl. You get the picture……

Last week was a great debate on absolutes. When are they real, if ever? If there are absolutes, when and how do you apply them? And when you apply them what do they really mean? It seems we did agree on certain absolutes—morality and ethics. So I take those off the table for this discussion. Although in one of my college philosophy classes even that was challenged. Do you recall a professor who said “morality is the venue of the victor?” However, that’s a discussion for a beer and a long night…

The bottom line (the real absolute that I see) is there is none (beyond what we agree on). Or maybe there are….
Think on this…

“Color television! Bah, I won’t believe it until I see it in black and white.”
Samuel Goldwyn

And, there you have it!! Show me the absolute in black and white and I might believe it…

What do you think?
