Re: What is P and -P?

If you have to P so bad, why didn't you go before we left the house? I can see you are resorting to jokes and skip any mathematical argument on your part. You're misusing and equivocating '=' multiple times. When you say P = P, what is P? Is it a number? Then the statement is an instance of the law...

Re: What's wrong with Hilaria?

Unfortunately, it is now accepted and taught that feelings trump reason. This is the result. But it's not. She's getting near universal scorn. Compare and contrast. Caitlyn Jenner, née Bruce, is universally lauded and applauded for claiming to be a woman when he was born a man. Vanity Fair cover an...

Your jokes only point to a lack of argument on your part.
Reflect what you are, in case you don't know

So what is your answer to the question? Yes, no, maybe, non of the above.
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind. The answer is blowin' in the wind.

Re: What does it feel like to be Enlightened?

One day in the Zen monastery a monk became enlightened.

His friend asked him: "What does it feel like to be enlightened?"

The newly enlightened one replied: "Just as miserable as ever!"

I insist there IS a backward causal chain. That's empirical and obvious.

I'm showing you it's mathematically impossible that it's an INFINITE backward causal chain.
How interesting. Then you'll have no trouble identifying the first integer with no immediate predecessor.

Re: Numbers, what are they?

Here's the question: if you do that, then when will you get to write "4"? Right after you write 3. Your argument assumes that which you're trying to prove. You're saying, "There can't be a backward causal chain because ... there can't be a backward causal chain." Even the most casual forum denizen ...

Re: Numbers, what are they?

But I can do logic very well...certainly well enough to know that if time is linear, as all the actual, empirical, scientific data attests it is, and as our ordinary experience tells us it is, then the universe has a beginning. That's rationally and mathematically inescapable. How does that follow?...

P.S. -- It occurs to me, after the fact, that I may have to point out (or perhaps explain for the first time, if you didn't happen to know already) that "P" in logic stands for either "premise" or "predication." Thus it is not at all the same as a mathematical placeholder like "X" or "Y." It refers...

Re: Continuum

But recursion is **NOT** late binding. They are grammatically different. I don't recall saying anything to the contrary. But clearly you went out of your way to entirely miss the point of what I was saying to you, just so that you could continue to grind your many axes. It would be better if I stop...
