A Philosophy Story

Once upon a time, a biologist, a physicst, and a philosopher were going for a walk on an island. All of a sudden they saw a black sheep.

"Ah, look at that!" exclaimed the biologist. "We can infer that the sheep on this island are
black."

"No, no, no," said the physicst. "All we can infer is that at least SOME of the sheep on this island are black."

"No, we cannot infer even that," said the philosopher. " All we can infer is that on this island, there is a quantity, not less than one, of beings with the appearance of sheep, of which at least one appears to be black on at least one of its sides!"

To priya joyce: You are so kind I'm quite sure I don't deserve it. I will tell u the truth, about the picture, I looked on Goog for black sheep but all ther was only from some kinda hozza movie, of sheep turning nasty, and I thought, this is got 2 be a joke. If u look on YouTube ther's one realli old movie even funnier about some rabbits that take over and rule a town. Imagine flopsy bunnies going fierce lol! x

To surjit: You are kind when you compliment my random scribble blog, when your blog is so amazing. I want a million people to read your work.

(Btw thanks for rescuing me when I was been overwhelmed by dogmatists on BC) x

Great story if you wrote it you're obviously a proper philosopher..unlike me! I saw that Black Sheep movie it's pretty funny but a bit gross.

To anadroid: ah no I didn't write the original story, but I adapted it because I thought my version is better. :)

To harneet singh: yeah that is true, so much depends on how we see things...
