Is this supposed to be a joke? Philosophers throughout the histroy of mankind didn't try to teach us us anything I guess.

It's all about having interest in whatever you're trying to think about. Do you have any personal stake in it or not? Is it worth your time? These instincts are instilled in you at a young age, by your progenitors and educators. I think nearly anyone is capable of tackling any task they set out to do, as they say, 'if you put your mind to it.'

I think the biggest challenge is realizing my own bias. I am aware when i'm calm, but sometimes theres something that rubs me the wrong way, it takes someone else to point out to me that i'm going with the flow instead of thinking for myself.

Out of curiosity, what specifically is your issue with Krauss and what do you feel he is an "acolyte" of?

He's an acolyte and deep believer in the delusional worldview known as scientism, and the belief system which has grown up around it.
