Is "justified true belief" a good definition for knowledge?

STMannew
lol101

To say "justified true belief is good definition for knowledge" is a conflation of belief and knowledge, as all "belief" is believed to be true and as such its justification is implied in one way or another. However, not all knowledge is known to be true. Therefore, "justified true belief" is a good definition for belief instead....

Careers Should Not Require Prior Schooling

Sulfur

Instead of schooling to be required for jobs, an entrance exam should be given to people along with a series of post-tests which can only be passed if a persons intelligence is high enough to do so. Therefore, many taxes would be shortened, student debt would be non existent, and a persons wealth will not be a factor when it comes to getting a job.

As we all should know there are many religions, with many different gods. So what makes one god more real than another? Religions merely provided a simple and unexplained answer to our creation. The only 'evidence' given to us are believers stories and a book from many years ago. Time and time again science has disproved such cases that were publis...
