So you are saying that the green line is not shorter then the red, blue or yellow lines. READ YOUR OWN ARTICLE!

Re: P=P is a Contradiction

OK, I am not 100% sure that the universe is not made of chocolate. I am "only" 99.99999999999% sure. Good grief, first you believe that square circles exist, that Einstein"s relativity is bunk and now the universe is made of chocolate. This "debate" is getting too silly.

Re: P=P is a Contradiction

You wrote,"What the fuck does it even mean to "contradict reality".
if I say that the universe is made of chocolate that contradicts reality.

Re: P=P is a Contradiction

Suppose someone says, " It is raining here and now and NO water is falling from the sky." I do not have to go out and check the weather. I already know he is incorrect because reality cannot contradict itself. The IDEA " It is raining here and now and NO water is falling from the sky." can contradic...

Re: P=P is a Contradiction

Suppose the cat is actually on the mat and I say the cat is on the mat and it is not on the mat. That is a contradiction even tho the cat is actually on the mat. The reality cannot contradict itself but one idea can contradict another IDEA. That's not a contradiction. That's just an incorrect descr...

Re: P=P is a Contradiction

I already answered that! Ideas can contradict each other. Reality cannot. And yes, ideas exist but not in the same way that actual objects do." I can say that vampires exist" yes that idea exists but that does not mean that actual vampires exist.

Re: P=P is a Contradiction

You wrote, "I am saying that the idea "contradiction" doesn't exist."
So 2 ideas cannot contradict each other. I disagree.

Re: P=P is a Contradiction

Ahh now I get your confusion. When I say that contradictions cannot exist I mean that only noncontradictory statements reflect reality. When you say that contradictions cannot exist you are saying that no two statements can ever contradict each other. Of course 2 ideas can contradict each other. But...

Re: P=P is a Contradiction

Good grief! I never said that the idea "vampire" doesn't exist. I implied that the "vampire" does not reflect an actual reality. Bye, enjoy your anger!

Re: P=P is a Contradiction

You wrote, "if "contradictions" don't exist - then why are we even talking about them?" I already answered that! I said that it is important to classify fallacies. That's a non-sequitur. If contradictions don't exist, they are useless towards your goal. Anyway, when you calm down and actually keep ...

Anyway, when you calm down and actually keep track of the conversation I will be back.
