deepity

“Deepity” is a term employed by Daniel Dennett in his 2009 speech to the American Atheists Institution conference, coined by the teenage daughter of one of his friends. The term refers to a statement that is apparently profound but actually asserts a triviality on one level and something meaningless on another. Generally, a deepity has (at least) two meanings; one that is true but trivial, and another that sounds profound, but is essentially false or meaningless and would be “earth-shattering” if true.

Autumnal Equinox

With day and night being about the same duration yesterday, we witnessed the sun’s passing of the celestial equator once again. In ancient times, this was called the First Point of Libra, because back then, the sun was just entering said constellation as summer ended. Times change and stars drift (see precession), so today we would probably name it The Second (or Third) Point of Virgo.

Round these parts, though, we just call it fall.

“Ernest Hemingway once wrote, ‘The world is a fine place and worth fighting for.’ I agree with the second part.”
