Re: P=P is a Contradiction

there is nothing wrong with appealing to authority. For example, every scientific organization in the world supports the proposition that global warming is real and we have facilitated it. Is that 100% proof ? No. But it makes the probability that global warming exists outrageously probable. Howeve...

Re: P=P is a Contradiction

http://www.nizkor.com/features/fallacies/appeal-to-authority.html If you had read Wittgenstein you would have seen that contradictions are always false. A and not A cannot both be true. Can you give me an example where both A and not A are both true? You are probably confusing truth with validity. ...

Re: There is No Distinction Between Appearances and Things in Themselves

according to you people rarely change their beliefs. That is according to you if you reread your posts. LOL You are joking right? If you want to make such a claim, then it is up to you to back up and support your claim with actual evidence. If you do NOT, then do NOT expect me, nor any one "else" t...

Re: P=P is a Contradiction

Absolutely NOT. If "Arab" has no commonalities then what does it point to? I said it did not point to a region. Are you saying that an Arab in the USA is not really an Arab? Are you saying that all Arabs are the same? Their ancestry derives from a common region thus a commonality occurs.

Re: P=P is a Contradiction

P=P is a tautology not a contradiction. Tautologies are always true and so say nothing. Contradictions are the opposite. They are always false. For example suppose I say, " It will rain today or it wont." True in all cases and tells me nothing about the weather. False a contradiction shows an absen...

And it is true that what is said is NOT necessarily true at all. Just like what you said before was NOT true at all.
And what did I say before which was not true at all?

Re: P=P is a Contradiction

... the syllogisms presented still are composed of assertions which are true.... Your phrases don't even make sense. You don't have anyone doing the "presenting" here, you're not referring to any specific "syllogisms," so Lord only knows why you use the definite article "the," and you don't know th...

Re: There is No Distinction Between Appearances and Things in Themselves

Your assertion here is correct. And to make this actually factually, or even more, true; Saying some thing does not make it, NECESSARILY, true. This is because just saying some thing some times does make 'it' in fact true. Therefore, according to your own "logic" here, whatever is said, no matter i...

Re: P=P is a Contradiction

No all those things are also unique. Just because you have no interest in the difference does not change the fact that they all occupy distinctly different places in space/time, and that each hairs is comprised of a difference number of molecules. To a higher being, maybe cat and dog are the same t...

Re: P=P is a Contradiction

Could you please put your remark into proper context? We're talking about the law of identity . For that, the mathematics don't even matter. They're an analogy, not a literal demonstration. Logic symbols are not mathematical symbols. Hope that clears that up. P=P and 1=1 both reflect a common bond ...

Re: P=P is a Contradiction

No, what would be the correct way of wording how circularity is a fallacy. Circularity only produces a fallacy if it is offered as the basis of a syllogism or argument, as you have done. Circularity, as a phenomenon, produces a truth...but only a trivial or recursive one. That's the right way to un...

The only two words you got right.
Then what would be the correct wording?
Sorry...I can't salvage for you an argument that doesn't even make grammatical sense. I wouldn't know how to do it if I tried.

Re: There is No Distinction Between Appearances and Things in Themselves

A false statement is as much a part of the Universe as a true statement is The important thing here is the fact that both types of statements can exist regardless of anything else A false statement is false in relation to the statement itself but not in relation to the fact that it exists A true st...

Re: P=P is a Contradiction

No two cats are the same. All cats are unique. "Cat" is just your subjective convenience. Yet the same forms of hair, tail, teeth, etc. repeat so there are common factors. The cat is both equal to a cat and not equal at the same time. No all those things are also unique. Just because you have no in...
