​Maybe because ​
Mortimer Adler
​ ​
never produced one bit of original philosophy in his life
​, or because​
Mortimer Adler
​ ​
was a creationist


​Or maybe because ​Mortimer Adler was a creationist who thought that the
Catholic church had a right to execute heretics


I've heard it said that the word

philosopher" comes from the Greek and means ​
lover of wisdom
​, if so then I am a philosopher and I do not love
Mortimer Adler
​ because
Mortimer Adler
​ was not wise.​
