...Bertrand Russell Bertrand Russell [Institute’s Bertrand Russell Bertrand Russell was a very famous atheist philosopher. Once he was asked how he would face God on the final, judgment day if He asks him why he questioned His existence. To this he gave the very famous, but obnoxious, reply: “Not enough evidence, God! Not enough evidence!” This kind of atheism is called evidential atheism. Although Russell talked about there not being enough evidence it is not clear what it is not enough for – whether to convince someone about the existence of God or for some other reason. There are people around the world who might actually think this way. They have no concern regarding God, religion... ?Running head:...

What, if anything, do you find respectable or virtuous about this? Viewpoint of Russell: When an individual articulates that he is only the thinking machine, individuals like Bertrand Russell arrive at the horizon of this Planet Earth. He hails laziness and that according to me, is rubbish. The life of a lazy individual is like the existence of a filthy pool with its water stinking.

...Bertrand Russell’s criticism of direct realism Introduction It would not be a mistake to suggest that one of the major differences between human beings and the rest of the living world can be seen in the fact that people question every aspect of their lives. Indeed, animals accept the world as it is, but the mankind has been thinking about fundamental questions almost since its very beginning. That is why to a certain extent philosophy reflects this essential part of the human nature. This paper will examine ideas of one of such philosophers, namely Bertrand Russell, and his criticism of direct realism, proving that he makes both strong and weak arguments...
