Re: the limits of fascism

Heh. :D Nothing of the kind. It isn't "gaslighting" if you ask somebody for the evidence of what they claim. That's just good sense. Gaslighting is the devious act of feigning that others are the one's acting out of the norm by staying in character as though you sincerely do not notice the truth. I...

Re: the limits of fascism

But maybe I'll ask you: whom do you regard as "right wing"? All the Neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and OTHER supporting supremists are just simple examples. Great. Where are they? Can you point one out? What are the media sources that are supporting them? What's the name of their political party? W...

Re: On assumptions...

So, you said and claimed that I "cannot 'argue' without some initial assumptions existing when dealing with two or more different people" , and now that you have provided how you are EXACTLY defining the word 'argue' here, we will have to wait to SEE if I can or cannot 'give reasons or cite evidenc...

Re: How can we know... "The Universe"

Note regarding my prior post on use of set theory at the end: The concept of 'order' is described by asserting a set that contains some X with another whole set that contains both that same X and some Y as follows: {X, {X, Y}} to mean that "X is followed by Y" To state that "Y is followed by X", yo...

Re: How can we know... "The Universe"

How can we know if the universe was created or that it created itself? 1) The act of creation is impossible ( the argument ) 2) There is a beginning ( the arguments ) 3) Therefore the universe popped out of nothingness or the universe just existed at the beginning I've already commented on some of ...

Re: Who Sinned First?

Could the story of "eve" and "adam" just be a story about HOW and WHEN human beings came to evolve? That story after all is about HOW from 'earth' came, or evolved, "adam", from "adam" came, or evolved, "eve", and when through evolution, itself, a species called the 'human beings', themselves, came...

Re: the limits of fascism

I was about to ask you the same thing. Nazism is National Socialism. my point was that we both konw history and so more left fanatics murdered than right ones. I'm having difficulty getting anybody even to locate these "right ones." Nobody can seem to tell me where they are now. fantiatic are a fan...

Re: Who was responsible for the original sin ?

I WAS repairing my screens before but found now that the new screens have found proprietary means to prevent this. It only costs me 30 cents for capacitors before to do simple repair of a blacked out screen but now the only means of repair requires to directly deal with the manufacturer who would c...

Re: On assumptions...

Is there any possible 'fact' that can be universally assumed to which all arguments initiate reasoning from? Yes. State our intentions and the fact our desires. Why do want to engage in argument? What are you trying to achieve? e.g I want to defend position X (even though I am not committed to it) ...

Re: On assumptions...

I assert that you cannot argue without some initial assumptions existing when dealing with two or more different people. Okay GREAT. First, when 'you' say 'argue' here, how EXACTLY are you using that word? Definition of 'argue' from Google: argue 1. (to) give reasons or cite evidence in support of ...

@Age If you expect me to respond, I cannot without you being able to take one step of response and one PIVOTAL question at a time. If you cannot get into one's castle through its default openings, you can't expect to alter its interior complexities. How about you provide an example of an 'argument',...

On assumptions...

assume (v.) early 15c., "to arrogate, take upon oneself," from Latin assumere, adsumere "to take up, take to oneself, take besides, obtain in addition," from ad "to, toward, up to" (see ad-) + sumere "to take," from sub "under" (see sub-) + emere "to take," from PIE root *em- "to take, distribute."...

Re: How can we know... "The Universe"

The Universe was neither 'created' nor 'created', Itself. If that is the case then we should see evidence of that. What we do see is evidence that it had a beginning. LOL Are you joking here? What, so called, ACTUAL "evidence" do 'you' see that the Universe "had a beginning"? And, who and/or what a...

Re: Who Sinned First?
