Chat show stand up philosophy


Here's the latest episode of London Real, with Tim Freke. It's thought-provoking, which is not to say I am endorsing all or part of it. Much had me tearing my hair out (see Believing Bullshit). Tim Freke describes himself as a "stand up philosopher" website here.

He could have picked a better title than "Stand up Philosopher".

From Mel Brooks' History of the World Part 1:

(Comicus is at the ancient Roman Dole Office.)
Dole Office Clerk: Occupation?
Comicus: Stand-up philosopher.
Dole Office Clerk: What?
Comicus: Stand-up philosopher. I coalesce the vapors of human experience into a viable and meaningful comprehension.
Dole Office Clerk: Oh, a *bullshit* artist.
Comicus: *Grumble*...
Dole Office Clerk: Did you bullshit last week?
Comicus: No.
Dole Office Clerk: Did you try to bullshit last week?
Comicus: Yes!

Why did you post a video of three people repeatedly admitting they're not quite sure what they're talking about but it's something they find terribly interesting? Do you suppose they might find it less interesting as soon as someone else figures it out? (because they don't seem to be too interested in making much progress themselves) Aren't these guys just mysterians?
