Atheism vs Religions put to the test - Quantum Computing

By Quantum Computing, let's put Atheism to the test! 1. Are the religions more true than Atheism? True or false. 2. Are the religions more helpful than Atheism? True or false. 3. Are religions more valuable than Atheism? True or false. My belief: Hah-hah-hah! Atheism out the window! 8) :mrgreen: Yo...

Atheists everywhere, hurry to hide or else I will prove this:

New to Atheism and Its Followers Atheists everywhere, hurry to hide or else I will prove this: "Atheism by moral blindness can cause death by stupidity, the breakdown of the nervous system!"

Re: The Modern Institution of Psychiatry as a Mental Illness

. You're failing to separate the corrupt psychiatry from the scientific, ethical psychiatry. Medical treatment can mean a World in difference for those who truly require it. You seem to lack the knowledge of the magnificent effects of medical treatment in psychiatry. Though, I agree. A new History o...

Re: Humans are fundamentally evil - according to Science

Now what if the Lead Scientist for The Stanford Prison Experiment was corrupt or evil and dishonest himself?

To throw Justice on the scrap heap can prove very costly and throw a nation into chaos and barbarism!

Re: Can there be such a thing as a "Liberal Dictatorship"?

"Can there be such a thing as a "Liberal Dictatorship"?"

No! N-O ! (What would such a thing do extra as opposed by the further development of Democracy, Human Rights (UDHR) and the legal systems?)

Re: Make your grass, bushes, trees, fishes and animals happy and pleased

. Further: Crazy experiment for trees (crazy!) Now let's try to see what MRI scan of a tree's central core roots system may bring. Let's correlate with substances' radiological signatures. Then, can we prove that a tree is doing telepathy? I said CRAZY! MRI for trees: an MRI-radio beam directed at t...

Re: Justified True Belief and Hypothetico-Deductive Method

Perhaps if you state where your uncertainty lies and be transparent of the evidence you require for me to falsify JTB I can do better? For a start, I have absolutely no trouble formulating a winner strategy by B, T and JTB and you go directly against it. Therefore, put simply, you are wrong! If not...

Re: Justified True Belief and Hypothetico-Deductive Method

Time for a paradigm shift, maybe ? ;) Let me end this exchange by saying that you have not proven that B, T, JTB (Plato Tripartite Definition) are junk. My scientific experience says that it is true, although in a more elaborated version today, in 2018. Ok? Enjoy! (Welcome to the Philosophy Now for...

Re: Justified True Belief and Hypothetico-Deductive Method

Cool story. How do you study the properties of an object without taking measurements e.g acquiring information? How do you represent this information without reducing it into a LANGUAGE that you can parse (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kolmogorov_complexity ) ? Sure, you must acquire information, b...

Re: Justified True Belief and Hypothetico-Deductive Method

Of course I see the connection. It is just that the practice of science (and scientific epistemology) is grounded in probability theory[1] and Bayesian inference (ET Jaynes’ principle of maximum entropy) which is grounded in information theory. So I don’t need the JTB (or any other non-mathematical...

Re: Justified True Belief and Hypothetico-Deductive Method

The question is not catch-all. The answer is. JTB has no utility criterion. That's why it's junk. It's also why the "law" of excluded middle is junk. That's not correct. Hypothetico-Deductive Method-Justified True Belief has indeed utility criterion. Problems translating science into Hypothetico-De...

Re: Justified True Belief and Hypothetico-Deductive Method

JTB is fundamentally broken. The following claim meets the criteria for knowledge: Soon the human race may or may not become extinct. The probabilistic nature of this claim requires a bounded confidence interval on the meaning of "soon". The sentence "Soon the human race may or may not become extin...
