Re: Back to Infinity

What is a shared border? Can you please give me an example. The white cup, blue pen, and brown desk is a good example by having a shared border that is the air/space between them. We can't have shape without color and we can't have color without shape. Yin cannot be yin unless yang is yang and ther...

Re: Back to Infinity

It has nothing to do with mind. One atom is aware of another atom and it does not have a mind. "In your mind" is only a saying - I thought you would understand the meaning I was trying to convey... Anyway, no, atoms are not aware of anything - just like you are not aware OF anything. There is aware...

Re: Back to Infinity

Anyway, I don't think this is going anywhere so let's agree to disagree. It's not going anywhere because your faith cannot be moved. See above regarding logic. People are robots and whatever ideology they happen to fall into, they will defend it to the death and even kill their own children on the ...

Re: Christianity's Immoral Foundation

Serendipper, please be careful, with inconsistencies; they are easy to spot, and some other debating opponents of yours may even mine it for more than you can bear: Serendipper wrote: I don't see a difference. Potentiality = eventuality. (-1- subsequently showed that the above results necessarily f...

Re: Christianity's Immoral Foundation

There is a difference between potentiality and eventuality. If you can't see that, then you are logically blind, so to speak. If potentiality IS INDEED EQUAL to eventuality, then we are, each of us individually and not collectively, all murderers, fathers, mothers, gays, straights, doctors, janitor...

Re: Back to Infinity

Reality IS relativity. Only the reality you made up in your mind knows of subject and object and is as such relative. When I use the word reality it is meant to point to that which is before mind-made reality (I call mind-made reality objective or relativistic as it is based on the idea of separate...

Re: Back to Infinity

I didn't specify what thoughts are made of, but that they are containers. Since no such containers were ever found, you are making them up. Containers and the meaning they contain are two distinct elements you speak of. Then how do you know what I'm talking about if nothing is contained in my text?...

Re: Christianity's Immoral Foundation

But you're right, it's not fair to say "everyone here", so I'll go with 99% ;) What I should have said is "seemingly everyone" since that's how it seems. Does it, to you? I don't come here all that often anymore, so I don't know what the percentages are now. By "here", do you mean planet earth? Hum...

Re: Christianity's Immoral Foundation

Anyway, have you ever seen anyone change their mind? Everyone here is practicing religious faith in whatever dogma they currently fancy. I don't need you to change your mind. One or both of these two things is enough for me: 1. Your admitting that you are logically wrong, and your faith is based on...

Everyone here is practicing religious faith in whatever dogma they currently fancy. or not Have you ever said "You're right!" ? If so, congratulations; you're a philosopher! If not, you're either religious or much smarter than everyone else. But you're right, it's not fair to say "everyone here", s...

Re: Back to Infinity

Sorry, forgot this part... Alan said "If the game is not worth the candle, you may as well commit suicide." Of course, he was talking to the atheists who believe they are machines, but from his point of view, he's just an actor in a play, so either way, it doesn't matter what people do: dying is no...

Re: Back to Infinity

That proves everything is relative to our means of detection. We have 6 means of perceiving the world and nothing can exist beyond that. It only proves that there is *that*/reality/whatever we agree to call it. It doesn't prove relativity, perception, not even that there is a world. Reality IS rela...

Re: Back to Infinity

Either thoughts, ideas, concepts contain something or they're random nonsensical noise, in which case they still contain the noise. You don't seem to understand what thoughts are. You are saying they are made of two distinct elements, which is directly refuted by neuroscience. And the same idea, co...

Re: Christianity's Immoral Foundation

A reminder to Serendipper, Skip and Walker: This is a philosophy site, not a Christian theological website. Here, arguments based on logic win. Your faith may be important to you, but strength of faith is not a currency here; only logic is. Please remember that. Your girlfriend may see your bossine...
