Re: Morality: The Fact/Opinion Distinction

But it wasn't Peter's definition? It doesn't matter. How you define a "fact" is immaterial if I just showed you a fact - ostensively. I've done that. If you agree that it's a particular example of a fact - then it should satisfy the definition you have for it. And if the ostensive example I've give...

Re: Morality: The Fact/Opinion Distinction

Yep. Here's his definition: A fact is a thing that is known to be consistent with objective reality and can be proven to be true with evidence. Peter, please show us how that works. Here is a fact -----------> The color of this sentence is red. Please show us the evidence to prove that the above fa...

You know this how ? Because you have SWAT squads. :roll: You know this how ? Which bit of the logic didn't you get? Which I disagree with. ...

Re: Sick until proven healthy

I did. Based on your comments: nope. Point out what I missed? The vast majority of your police are ill-trained in the use of firearms in a combat situation. You know this how ? Because your police force does not train the bulk of your gun-carrying officers in combat training, its why you have SWAT ...

Re: Sick until proven healthy

Play with words... act as if there will be a vaccine around or some medicine to soften the sickness. Delay it might result in being, good enough. Just as long as one take the responsibility not to be infected or infect. Not really sure what you are saying but over here the reason for the lockdown w...

Re: Truth and Consistency

This is a prime example of Quine's criticism of analyticity - it's circular. Any contingent statement X can be turned into a yes/no question: "Is X true?" Don't see how? It's been a very long time since I read Two Dogmas but from what I remember is that he objected to the analytic/synthetic distinc...

Re: Sick until proven healthy

You need to read what I posted. I did. The vast majority of your police are ill-trained in the use of firearms in a combat situation. Those who have such training will not have squads trained to the same standard so will not be effective. This idea that your guns keep you free from an oppressive go...

Re: Sick until proven healthy

Trump reluctantly went along with some of the left's proposals, while rejecting others. It's primarily the left that's pushing for this shit. Look at populist president Jair Bolsonaro of Brazil, he completely rejected their bullshit. The response will vary by country and Brazil can afford to I gues...

Re: Sick until proven healthy

And I'm bettin' a goodly chunk of those well-trained, well-armed, experienced folks will be fillin' out the already swollen ranks of the militia. Military (current and former), police officers (current and former), Sheriffs and deputies (current and former): not all are robotic follow any order giv...

Not to do with numbers but better training, better firepower and combat experience along with squad loyalty. I'll bet on two full squads of US infantry against a much larger number of unregulated militia men any day of the week.

You can't avoid this disease this will only happen if there is a vaccine. All you can do is to try and delay the spread so your health services dont collapse.

Re: Truth and Consistency

For a formalist mathematical system where truth is analytical (truth is based on their logical form), would you say that X being consistent means X is true (i.e. truth = consistency)? Or would consistency be a necessary/sufficient condition of truth (i.e. everything that's true must be consistent, ...

Re: Sick until proven healthy

The left or establishment has created a new class of people, the sick . The sick have less rights than the healthy . They can be forcibly quarantined and treated . And assuming everyone is sick until proven healthy, is every bit as insane as assuming everyone is guilty until proven innocent. The po...
