Re: What or who caused this Covid -19 virus?

Everybody please spare a thought in these difficult times for our overworked conspiracy theorists, they tirelessly juggle so many competing explanations of events on your behalf, I fear DAM may die soon of mental exhaustion.

Re: Neo-classical-neo-liberalism (UK edition)

As your resident Neoliberal, I would like to point out that during all the Coronavirus stuff, neither I nor any other neolib type, has gone anywhere near these conversations about choosing who should die for the sake of the economy.

Re: Coronavirus Craziness

Shouldn’t a common threat promote a sense of we’re all in this together? Aren’t common goals conducive to the creation of teams? So, why are we divided into 2 opposing armies? There are those who feel threatened by the Coronavirus, and those who believe the response to this virus is over the top. T...

Re: Coronavirus Craziness

In hindsight wouldn't it have been cheaper and less economically damaging to have told all sixties and overs to totally isolate themselves right at the beginning until the virus had passed through the rest of the population. That's about 20% of the population who would have to register with the sta...

Re: Coronavirus Craziness

The modellers found that, were the virus left to spread, it would cause around 2.2m deaths in America and 500,000 in Britain by the end of summer. In advanced economies, they concluded, three months of curve-flattening, including two-week quarantines of infected households, would at best prevent on...

Re: Bidon is Senile

Hmmm. You forget...I'm not a Trumpist or a Democrat. I'm not even American. What I'm trying to say is only that I have genuine sympathy for this man who is being set up for abuse and humiliation by his "handlers." I wouldn't want that to happen to anyone. I know you are fond of saying such things. ...

Re: Bidon is Senile

Biden isn't senile... Well, what's very clear is that he's a man way, way past his cognitive prime. I've got a genuine feeling of sympathy for him; I think he's a victim here. The Democrats are pushing him into the spotlight, and he's a obviously man not strong enough to stand at a podium, or to re...

Re: Bidon is Senile

This is just the usual shit. 4 years ago republicans were saying that Hillary was about to die of something. Today, Bernie has just recovered from a heart attack and has reversed a previous promise to disclose his medical records, so he has his campaign pushing stories about Biden's declining menta...

Re: All Philosophy is bullshit

You gave it that appearance. As i said, you wrote out a statement with the grammatical form. The P and the Not P you actually evaluated was, by sleight of hand actually (not(not P)) You cheated. And the reason you had to cheat was because ruby wouldn't give you the true you wanted if you actually h...

Re: All Philosophy is bullshit

You used a fraudulent grammatical representation of a contradiction Fraudulent? I am using the exact same syntax as the formal definition!!! You gave it that appearance.

Re: All Philosophy is bullshit

Then you are left with a contradiction. You don't know what a contradiction is - the definition of 'contradiction' is arbitrary. True vs True is not contradictory. There is no spin you can put on it. Your P was turned into Not P BEFORE you tested it against Not P. That's why your test of Not P == P...

Re: All western/analytic Philosophy is bullshit

It evaluated true == true. It did. It evaluated P and ¬P. Only by setting them to the same value so that they weren't contradictory. Which is a useless way to test a law about contradictions. They weren't contradictions. They weren't a valid counter to the LNC. You tested (P ∧ P) ⇔ True and you jus...

Re: All western/analytic Philosophy is bullshit

Your code did not assert a contradiction. It evaluated true == true. Bullshit. My code asserted/evaluated ¬(P ∧ ¬P) as False. It evaluated true == true. It did. In fact, all it takes to break your code is to evaluate p and not p in a different order. $toggle = false def p $toggle = (not $toggle) en...
