Re: The problem with religious critique, logic, reasons, truth-seeking, argumentation, and debate.

Also it is not necessarily the case that all life and knowledge learnt will be gone as by that stage we could have spread to other solar systems. space is empty - the nearest stars are too far to get too. no technology will make a spaceship mulitgenerational for a 60,000 yrs to get to the nearest s...

Re: Neoliberalism is good (or at least ok).

Then we got mostly the same system. Party affiliation (in registration) isn't a requirement unless, as I say, you wanna vote in party-specific things (dems voting on a nominee, for example). That sounds odd to me, so you can just declare yourself a republican or democrat or whatever and have a vote...

Re: Neoliberalism is good (or at least ok).

Ah! I get what is meant now, yes we have what's called an electoral role, or register, for each council area that we sign-on to if we wish to vote in local or general elections but there is no declaration of any party affiliation just ID of who we are and generally some kind of proof that we current...

Re: Hate Unlimited

... If you do, you're wrong. So why, in your opinion, did the the US/UK prosecute the Gulf War ? ... For the US? 1. Because Iraq was getting too chummy with the Russians as they were beginning to understand the value of American promises, ask the Kurds about this. 2. Because Iraq attacked the oil c...

Re: Intuitionist Double Negation --> Aristotelian P=P --> Double Positives

I'm not sure of your point here, as for sure if pears don't exist then its false that pears exist and the proposition "Pears exist" will be false? This is a proposition about pears: P1: Pears exist P1 is false. This is a proposition about another proposition (P1): P2: P1 is false P2 is true. ... P2...

Re: Intuitionist Double Negation --> Aristotelian P=P --> Double Positives

In classical Propositional Logic(PL)(which I presume is what you're mangling) there is no 'If P exists'. The standard semantics are True and False so the formula is read as 'if P is true'. What do you mean by 'if P exists'? Propositions are types ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curry%E2%80%93Howard...
