Refraction (Bent Thinking) #71

Meaningless / Self Defeating Questions: Questions that are semantically vague, logically self-defeating, or would require a committing a category error to answer.  Refutation: These questions do not need to be answered. They need to be re-asked or ignored.  Examples: “How high is up?” “What was there before time?” Side Note: A very common question that is asked when discussing ethics and a moral position is, “Well, who gets to decide what is morally right?”  When asked that, respond by asking them what authority they use and why. If they refuse to acknowledge any moral authority, there is no reason for them to ask questions about morality authority.
