Conspiracy of intellectuals to not define crucial words in their writings.
#1
There is a Conspiracy of intellectuals to not define crucial words in their writings, that is my observation.

Do you anyone have this impression?

Read this thread,* and you will see how the intellectuals there are all into hook and crook with avoiding to define crucial words or just their concepts of things they bring up, in discussing the topic of thread - even when challenged to do so time and again by the author of the thread.

And see or examine yourselves, are you also instinctively into avoiding definitions of crucial words in your writings?

The impression I have Troll, is that you've been thrown out of every respectable board you've weaseled your way onto, and it'll happen here too.

Sorry mate, you make no sense whatsoever. Your thread links show nothing about definitions and seem to be an attempt to ask if god exists.

No doubt, such asking is done in a way that will enable you to go "checkmate atheists!" at some stage. I've yet to see an atheist bothered about definitions or evidence when it comes to gods, because the idea is so preposterous as to verge on insanity and not be worth the price of discussing.

If you want to clear up what you're asking, I might even respond.

I regret bringing in my thread in another forum.

But to my observation, that is the general in a way attitude of writers, not to be concerned with the concepts or definitions of crucial words in their even popular writings.

Start with a little English Composition Troll, then try again.

I don't see any honest intelligent productive thinking and writing from your part at all.

Sorry mate, but that's a load of crap.

I'm a writer, and nothing's more important than precision, which demands concepts be defined.

If you have an actual point, feel free to tell us what it is. If you want to whine about your opinion of some unknown writers, you're probably wasting everyone's time.

Sure is.

As long as you make the effort to say what the hell it is you want to say.

Right now, I'm finding it amusing ironic that you're complaining about lack of definition, but giving nobody any idea of what your actual subject is.

My intention is to discuss the feature of critical thinking with anyone who is keenly interested in critical thinking and writing, the feature namely which has to do with authors defining the crucial words they employ in their works.

I came across this thread when I was looking for a site that is into the subject of critical thinking.

OP:
I've never actually seen the "rules" for it,  I thought  all this stuff was done out of being super critical and cynical?

There, let us talk about one essential feature of critical thinking which is that thinkers/writers must define crucial words they use, for example, the word evidence.

Authors are not compelled to define the words they use Troll. Presumably they know the definitions of the words they use and so do their readers. It's an unwritten agreement between writers and readers. As new words enter the lexicon, they go into this big book along with the definitions and common usages.

It's called a Dictionary.

Now, one of those won't help you with composition. For that, there are other books. Pick some of those up and read them.
