There are no shortage of scams out there, and often, scams hinge people reading more to a situation than is actually promised or stated.
There is a huge difference between an logical argument and sophistry. Sophistry is fantasy. It sounds right if you (a) have no expertise, and (b) have no experience.
With theory, there are infinite possibilities. There are no boundaries.
Until you try to actually apply that theory in the real world.
Then that "no bo" theory goes right up in smoke.
Like it or not, it is the brave person who sees the boundaries.
It is the coward who thinks there is none.
There are limits. Not every explanation fits. Not every answer is the right one.
Those who deceive with sophistry try to constrict thought by first trying to sell the notion that anything is possible and has equal footing, and then tries to turn over logic to imply that actually, it is their version of thought which is the only one that is correct.
If we do not believe in boundaries, we are vulnerable to this feint.
If we understand that reality does indeed have boundaries, we can test theories and challenge sophistry.
F.R.E.E.D. is the method of testing facts and theories.
It finds context, not excuses or narratives.
Or sophistry in a bid to make lies seem true the way sophistry does...
