I think think is just another buzzword with no actual meaning.

Much better words with associated, substantive meaning are -- compare , assess, measure, appraise...

You're absolutely right, of course.

But when one starts a thread that's meant to be satyrical, a certain amount of cliche and buzzwords totally without meaning are de rigeur and used advisedly.

@Lustig Andrei,
I need to think in order to survive. Pretty good justification.

@Ding an Sich,
If we were observing the whole Galaxy species and debating with "Vulcans" about compared interplanetary species how would we agree who is surviving further and getting extinct first ?

@Fil Albuquerque,
Given that we are familiar with no extra terrestrial intelligences, about whom shall we debate?

@Fil Albuquerque,
Survival is within the context of an individual. It is never within the context of a species. "Species" is a concept, while individuals are particular concretes. Darwinism is, imo, defunct, and needs to be recast in terms of something else.

ding an sich, are you truly so obtuse as to not realize that this thread is supposed to be a satire on all those "what is your justification for thinking . . .[insert favorite philosophical cliche]" threads that were proliferating at the time this one was started?
