I just witnessed this lawls-worthy conversation. What are the thoughts of you /sci/entist?

Person 1 : But, anyways, comparing education sizes is like comparing penis sizes. It's cool that you're doing the physics scene. All the cool kids do math or physics. The wanna-be cools ones do chemistry, and the lame ones do biology.
Person 2 : I do psychology because being a psychology student is fun
Person 2 : math and physics are for masochists
Person 2 : engineering and bussiness are for people who like money
Person 3 said to Person 2 : i was gonna do Psychology at uni
Person 2 : and english is for lazy people
Person 3 : then i found that i hated it at A level, so i decided it wasnt for me :snap:
Person 1 : purity.png
Person 2 : OR people who can obsess over REALLY OLD AND BORING THINGS
Person 2 said to Person 1 : purity eh.....
Person 2 : *sigh
Person 2 : yep how to tell the difference between people who know what engineering is and people whose egos are too big
Person 2 : also
Person 1 : Big egos!
Person 1 : YAY! :twins:
Person 2 : philosophy is the most 'PURE'
Person 1 : No. You have to say "mathematics is just applied philosophy."
Person 1 : That's how that comic works.
Person 2 : I'm not a hipster
Person 2 : so I will never say that
Person 1 : :ohyou:
Person 2 : that said, every one of those schools was created by the human mind. Psychology is the study of the human mind
Person 2 : ergo all of them are applications of advanced psychology
Person 2 : which is an application of language
Person 2 : therefore every degree is applied latin
Person 2 : <broke his logic somewhere.....
Person 1 : No. Psychology is the study of the behavior and mental processes. Study of the human mind and brain is a completely different science.
Person 2 : see there is actually some debate on that issue

>> No.3602713

Person 2 : brain-neurology, mind-mental philosophy/philosophical application of scientific knowledge as to mental processes, psychology-study of mental processes
Person 2 : mind is still psychology, just taken one step up or down
Person 2 : brain is neurology
Person 1 : OMG. You're right. It makes perfect sense! -sarcasm-
Person 2 : but the brain is a mental concept

>> No.3602722

I personally think Person 2 is a complete retard.

>engineering and bussiness are for people who like money

He got that much right.

>> No.3602729

These make me believe he doesn't know what he is talking about:

>> No.3602736

>Ph.D. in mathematics

>> No.3602738

>Physics is applied Maths
>Mathematics is applied Philosophy
>Philosophy is applied Sociology
>Sociology is applied Psychology
>Psychology is applied Neuroscience
>Engineering is applied anal lube

>> No.3602754

there's something interesting about this debate, but not enough for me to reply

>> No.3602774

Wher's that story with Feynman who didn't know how to get some liquid nitrogen, he had to call a teacher from a community college from Brooklyn. He said he was a theoretical physicist so he didn't know. It must be painful to know so much physics and not know shit about using it in real life.

>> No.3602776

At least we can agree that biology is not a science.

>> No.3602778

retards everywhere.png

math is subdivision of philosophy.

science is a separate subdivision of philosophy, which uses math as a tool.

physics is an experimental science whose causes can by speculated on by philosophy.

chemistry is an experimental science whose causes can be informed by physics

biology is a science whose causes can be informed by chemistry.

psychology is a science. Occasionally its causes can be speculated on by neurobiology, but generally it stands on its own based on behavioral experiment, like physics.

sociology is a science which uses the science of psychology as a tool.

More proof of retardism of Person 2:

Thanks, but it's more like normal /sci/ when it isn't summer.

Why do people get bent out of shape over this stuff?
