    Why a waste of time?
    Well it's maths. As soon as you get past addition and subtraction there's no point in it.

    According to that source, not all STEM subjects are superior, history's figure is slightly more than biology's and only £39 less than chemistry's

    Well, philosophy invented and developed logic and many logicians have also been philosophers. IE, Russel, Liebenitz, Quine etc

    Even Godel dabbled.
    So what you're saying, is that the STEM greats are so clever, they dabble in non-STEM subjects, just for thrills? :holmes:

    There you go. Who the **** needs Theology? It's basically English literature - just over-analysing pieces of fictional text.
    :u: I think I outdid myself coming up with that :laugh:
    Bar Christianity ofc you're completely right

    Non-STEM students will have a lot more fun at uni too. And will have jobs that are more fun. And will generally have better personalities.

    Damn I wish I could do something else.

    Actually the opposite

    Apart from Godel; but his ontological argument has a shakey axiom in it, so I could make the argument that he tried philosophy and failed, and then I would have to make the argument that pretty much EVERY philosopher/logician/mathematician who tried philosophy failed.

    Because philosophy is just so goddam alpha nobody can even do it right.

    Shaky axiom

    Unless by shaky you mean borderline but still plausible

    I wanna drop it next year I'm bored to death of writing essays and drawing diagrams. I thought there'd be more maths in it to be honest :laugh: How wrong was I?
    (Original post by Robbie242)
    I fell into the same trap, and then realised PED was about as mathematical as it was going to get :lol:
    I too, thought there was going to be more maths.
    I think I might have had to add up two numbers a couple of lessons ago, but I can't remember now.

    Needless to say, that dirty social science is being crossed off my list of subjects come next September, and I will only be studying glorious STEM subjects from then onwards.

    STEM is the master race
    Beta arts students should praise Principia Mathematica on a daily basis
    Why thank you

    I haven't done any maths since we did Index and that was months ago :laugh: I want to only continue with STEM next year too and drop the wannabe. No more essays :woo: not worth my time

    Pretty much. It always struck me as wrong, but I haven't been able to refute. Not that I've thought about it for more than ten minutes.

    Looking at the argument again, I cannot bring myself to try and refute it.

    Lol, people, social sciences are STEM, because by definition a social science is a science. You share a master race with sociology, there is no escaping that.


    And don't dismiss economics either: it gets very mathematical at university apparently.

    Lol it barely gets past A-Level.

    The only proper maths is in finance which none of the economists can do.

    No. If some people do hate it, it stands for massive waste of time.

    Hey, I'm just repeating what I heard.


    Is that a level maths, or a level econ?
