Re: How I Solved Hume’s Problem and Why Nobody Will Believe Me

My take on Hume's: Factors 1. Consistency and coherency (deduced from Descartes' Meditations) 2. The sum of natural laws (the usual consideration of our beings in nature) 3. Logics and mathematics are necessary aspects of nature and our minds (I hold the view that logics and mathematics are for real...

Re: Refutation of Time Travel

I don't believe in time traveling, but the demonstration is not valid, because the first premise is false. According to the first premise, all I have to do is to claim that I'm a time traveler or that I have seen one to prove that there's time traveling, but stories of time travelers do not imply t...

Re: Refutation of Time Travel

If only awareness without baggage can travel through time then there is no way of knowing if a Time Traveler isn't just pulling your leg with his or her tales of adventure. So you assume that Time Travellers are pulling your leg all the time? Isn't that an unreasonable story? BTW, stories of the fu...

Refutation of Time Travel

Claim: If Time Travel would be true throughout the history of human kind, at any point in time whether past or future, time travellers would be "all over us" in telling about the future or past or whatever. However, there are no stories of either such people or common stories of such being...

When will Atheists learn to accept and love Democracy?

When will Atheists learn to accept and love Democracy? I have this worry about Atheists that when they form states they tend to be like Soviet Union, Cuba, North Korea and others, not really that cool! So what is it about Atheism and statehood? Are they capable to maintain human rights and stay away...

Re: What is truth? Truth is Simple

"Truth is Simple" by Leon Horsten; Graham E. Leigh Abstract: Even though disquotationalism is not correct as it is usually formulated, a deep insight lies behind it. Specifically, it can be argued that, modulo implicit commitment to reflection principles, all there is to the notion of trut...

Re: Scientific Paradigms are NOT true

I've identified a mark of stupidity in history of science in that Galileo Galilei's superior has failed to commission/make the order for building, let's say, 10 Galilean telescopes when in fact his opponents and contemporaries alike have been in need of one! This is remarkable because it shows that ...

Re: Scientific Paradigms are NOT true

If two lessons can be drawn from history of science, they are these: accuracy and added description . Not scientific revolutions, not cognitively new worlds! The telescopes of history can be viewed in combination by the focusing telescope that's able to go from the view of the naked eye to the starr...
