    Hey, great post – I love the gecko! lol The question is whether or not said gecko is licensed, though… =P
    Of course, in Star Wars, Obi-Wan says: “Only a Sith (aka – the bad guys) deals in absolutes.”
    But then – if you think about this, that statement in and of itself is an absolute.
    (Don’t have a clue what that had to do with anything, but there you go…lol)

    Hey Kez. Interesting observation. It’s been quite a few years since I’ve watched the Star Wars original trilogy. Which movie is that in?

    And you’re absolutely right, it is an absolute statement which is the beauty of it. Relativism is a self defeating philosophy. I think people tend to resort to it because it is the last option a rational person who hates his own rationality has. Yet he can’t even escape his own “mannishness” there.

    The ‘Obi-wan’ quote is from Revenge of the Sith which is the third and final installment of the entire sage released in 2005. Anakin – a sith – claims “If you’re not with me, then you’re my enemy!” To which Obi-wan – the Jedi – replies, “Only a Sith deals in absolutes.” signifying he has come to an end of reasoning with his former apprentice.
    So I guess what you said is correct. =D
    The irony of the entire Star Wars saga (and books) is the philosophies they teach – like the above – tend to be somewhat contradictory for the most part (and slightly wacko for the rest… lol)!
