Re: The greatest imaginable is much less than the greatest possible -- Anselm fails

Well lets give it meaning. The Multiverse is all that exists. It used to be The Universe, but we are demoting it. For variety. But 'we' are NOT. ONLY 'you' are "demoting". Because you are TRYING TO deflect away from the issue at hand and the very FACT that YOUR so called "challenge" has already bee...

Re: The greatest imaginable is much less than the greatest possible -- Anselm fails

WHAT???? You are the ONLY one who came up with some totally impossible defining and meaningless word of 'multiverses', and then went on with this last nonsensical comment. Well lets give it meaning. The Multiverse is all that exists. It used to be The Universe, but we are demoting it. For variety. ...

Re: The greatest imaginable is much less than the greatest possible -- Anselm fails

Yes, but one must observe ALL of something to know that ALL of it exists. Or your KNOWLEDGE is incomplete. (The ignore list must not be working to well. Or, some one just could NOT resist?) But that was NOT your so called "challenge" Yes. I was surprised when I saw notifications from you. Seems I m...

Re: The greatest imaginable is much less than the greatest possible -- Anselm fails

One does NOT have to observe ALL of some thing to KNOW that It [something literally] exists. Yes, but one must observe a statistically significant part of of something to make useful general inferences. Not necessarily so. I can observe an atom and deduce, through reason (or without), that some thi...

Re: Taking Determinism Seriously

by Joel Marks https://philosophynow.org/issues/75/Taking_Determinism_Seriously Why are human beings so STUPID to even THINK that it is one or the other? Determinism AND Free Will both play an equal in part in the game of Life. One does NOT override the other. They are both equal in importance and i...

Re: The greatest imaginable is much less than the greatest possible -- Anselm fails

So you can observe the CONTENTS of the collective noun. But not the collective noun itself. Because it's just a category in your mind. The biggest category. One does NOT have to observe ALL of some thing to KNOW that It [something literally] exists. The one called logik put out a challenge, but whe...

The idea of a universe that is created by a god is not empirically possible.
The idea of the universe is not empirically possible. Full stop.
This sounds like another absolute.

Re: The greatest imaginable is much less than the greatest possible -- Anselm fails

YOU said that. You decided that on your lonesome. You gave me permission to decide for you. So I did. Surely you can NOT be this STUPID. I NEVER gave you permission to decide for me. This is what I said: First learn and decide the definition of the words you want to use, then the rest falls into pl...

Tell me when you have finished editing your post, then I will respond. I don't care if you respond. I do NOT care if you do not care. You are gauging everything everyone says against the law of non-contradiction. Are you absolutely SURE of this? This suggests you are still learning about classical ...

Re: The reality is indifferent

Everything that is alive will eventually die because immmortality is not physically possible And so the extinction of the human species at some future point in time can be predicted Even the Universe itself shall die when it acquires heat death through maximum entropy How CERTAIN of this are you?

Re: The greatest imaginable is much less than the greatest possible -- Anselm fails

But before you said: I am logik, and now you are saying: I am a phenomenologist. Particular vs General distinction. In general and always - I am Logik. In this particular context I choose to label myself as a phenomenologist. This is called "reaching people at the level of their understanding". And...

Re: Making Children Moral

True morality can not come from a belief system, it cannot come from rules or any other conceptual content. It can only blossom from true knowledge. Thus, as long as the knowledge that is being "osmosised" by the child stems from people acting and teaching from a perspective of separation, morality...
