Re: The Science of Philosophy?

To argue a science of philosophy is to argue a philosophy of philosophy given science is rooted in philosophy as it is a way to define reality. With this in mind philosophy becomes a recursive loop.

Re: Concepts

Most of the supposed problems of epistemology are due to the absurd philosophers have explained concepts concepts including Plato's mystic "real" essences, Hume's view of concepts as fuzzy little images in one's head, Kant's abomination of concepts meaning their definitions and Wittgenstein's asser...

Re: Religion is Man- Made

There's god existing and there's the thought of god existing . The contradiction is your conflating of the two as if they were somehow equivalent. Most of what happens in the mind never happens externally. False all our interactions occur through memory of empirical events. We react with the world ...

Re: The A=A

I'm not. WHy are you so stupid as to confuse a statement in which I say that no two things are the same with not sharing traits? See above And all cats are unique gibberish 1. Because the sharing of qualities necessitates sameness between phenomenon. The ability to quantify or group phenomenon nece...

Re: The Concept of God

All abstractions are real as abstractions, they act as the filters through which we move and interact through reality. The concept of God, as a filter for our actions, necessitates God as affecting the world empirically thus is empirical. God is just another concept for nothing which is the same as...

Re: The Existence of God

The negator cannot be negated. The negator is 'Nothing' appearing as 'Everything/Something'. Knowledge therefore, is a zero sum phenomena, it's a fictional imposition upon the real. Sensation is the only reality. Pain is here to stay as long as sentience is a reality. No God can wipe away pain, unt...

Re: The Existence of God

You cannot know you do not exist - you can only know you do exist through thought which is an illusion, and so you cannot even know you exist except in this illusory conception. If thought is an illusion then your statement about thought is an illusion and you contradict yourself. No god is the onl...

Re: The Existence of God

Yes... the same applies to God. It applies to all abstractions. Freedom. Justice. Morality. Fairness. All abstractions are real as abstractions, they act as the filters through which we move and interact through reality. The concept of God, as a filter for our actions, necessitates God as affecting...

Re: The Existence of God

If thought is an illusion then your statement about thought is an illusion and you contradict yourself. Contradictions don't exist. If contradictions don't exist then nobody can contradict themselves. If nobody can contradict themselves then I am not contradicting myself. What you think is a "contr...

Re: Mathematics is less precise than Programming

1. The totality of being as one event. You can't observe that unless you sit next to God. 3. Yet in identification we use variables which are sweeping generalizations that requires one phenomenon to exist relative to another through its similarities with the other. So what? 4. If you cannot define ...

Re: The Problem of "If/Then"

No you are just expressing "if A then B" in a new form with f(), you did not define the internal workings of f(). So what? You can't define the internal workings of an electron. It's a noumenon. The statement "If I put my hand over the fire then it will burn" does not Express why it will get burned...

Re: Religion is Man- Made

Since when can a concept have existence except as a concept, that is, only as a mental image? I can imagine dead people alive and talking to them but they're still dead so obviously I'm only talking to a mental image of someone. Imagining it, conceptualizing it is not in the least unusual. Believin...

Re: The Problem of "If/Then"

The if/then dichotomy does not clarify why if A then B. "If/then" observes if one phenomenon occurs then another follows. If A then B . Obviously it doesn't specify WHY it follows. It specifies THAT it follows. If you re-write if A then B in functional notation then you get: f( A ) = B When you def...

Re: Mathematics is less precise than Programming

1. Any thing identifies as any one thing from the multitude of all things. It does? Which one thing does it identify? It points to all things. So it doesn't identify any one thing. 2. Yet in identifying the one cat you are using the variable of "cat" in defining it. I am not identifying the one cat...
