    I am willing to bet you lunch at Peggy’s in Philly that Miz Bama can not even tell you who that is, much less even pronounce “Wittgenstein.”

  • Anderson says:

    Miss Alabama was just echoing Wittgenstein:

    “The temporal immortality of the human soul, that is to say, its eternal survival after death, is not only in no way guaranteed, but this assumption in the first place will not do for us what we always tried to make it do. Is a riddle solved by the fact that I survive for ever? Is this eternal life not as enigmatic as our present one? The solution of the riddle of life in space and time lies *outside* space and time.”

    — Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, 6.4312.
