    Common sense

    People tend to use this term rather loosely. Does such a thing actually exist?

    What is your definition? Because as you have shown the notion of "common sense" is subjective.

    In most instances- COMMON SENSE is not SUBJECTIVE

    COMMON SENSE says 1+ 1= 3 is INCORRECT.

    Is that SUBJECTIVE or a FACT?

    Not common for those in indigenous populations. It is common to our standards because it was widely taught.

    But you assume that the person was taught mathematics. What if the person was never exposed to math at all?

    Are you guys serious?

    Is that your rational as to why there is no COMMON SENSE?

    COMMON SENSE - SOUND AND PRUDENT JUDGMENT BASED ON A SIMPLE PERCEPTION OF THE SITUATION OR FACTS

    That sir is collective experience...not "common sense". How can you have sound and prudent judgement if you haven't been exposed to said situation or facts?

    I do not have to assume anyone has taken math to know that one plus one doesn't equal there. Anyone who doesn't know this fact, you're not of this planet or wasn't born with a cranium or has a brain cell defect

    So a newborn baby knows 1 + 1 = 2 as soon as it's conceived correct? Hence the entire flaw with the notion of "common sense".

    Because I have COMMON SENSE, I know that I meant THREE instead of there.
