Re: Do chimpanzees believe in God?

Again from Wikipedia :"Non sequitur (fallacy), an invalid argument whose conclusion is not supported by its premises" I don't see how you my statement could be regarded as a non-sequitur. I am not using the common definition. I have invented my own. If you are inventing your own definitions for wor...

Re: What do people want from philosophy?

What has survived falsification is knowledge . For now ... True and absolute knowledge can really only be arrived at through falsification So you are saying that something is either not true or it is false? I take a rather pragmatic stance on truth. Truth is whatever works. Or rather - if it doesn’...

Re: Comparing philosophies, creationism is the best.

Have you answered the question already? If so, then was that with an objective True and Right answer, or was that just with your own personal subjective answer? Or, did you answer it for me by assuming that that would be my answer? Probably, but I will repeat it again. Your 'perfect universe' is tr...

Re: On moral disengagement

Even though I have told you so already, You are still under the ILLUSION that I BELIEVE some thing. You are still under the ILLUSION that I am a THEIST. You conflate belief with theism. In the common meaning theism is a subset of belief. subset.png Atheism is another kind of belief. Liking marshmal...

Re: God is an Impossibility

I NEVER said that I can improve 'absolute perfection' at all, nor did I even say to begin with. You just assumed that that is what I am saying I also said to you BEFORE that I could NOT improve 'absolute perfection', when you accused me of that BEFORE. I explained simply what could be improved upon...

Re: God is an Impossibility

What do you mean by 'ad hominem' here? You are claiming that I am "unable to see" anything outside of my own "belief". When it seems to me that I am seeing quite a lot more than you are seeing. So you are attacking my skills of observation without any actual justification or evidence ;) Just show m...

Re: What if God is weak?

When I say the Universe is an observable phenomena I do not mean in any absolute sense Obviously it is impossible to observe it in its entirety so I mean in a [ very ] limited sense You mean it in the sense that you can observe the CONTENTS of the universe. But not The Universe itself. Because The ...

Re: What if God is weak?

The Universe is empirical because it exists as an observable phenomena Axioms pertain to the non empirical or conceptual so are something else No, it isn't. Quarks, leptons and electrons are observable phenomena. Spacetime is a measurable phenomenon. Entanglement is a measurable phenomenon. Gravity...

Re: What if God is weak?

You still need a Universe for any quantum conception to occur in no matter how empty or small that may actually be Entanglement between two particles can occur instantaneously over any space so a Universe would be useful for this The reason I am toying with you is because you fail to separate lingu...

Re: What if God is weak?

The definition of Universe is ALL THAT IS so whatever exists at any time is that regardless of anything else Logically and empirically it cannot be anything else and while you may want to question this it is still true So the existence of the universe is axiomatic? E.g it's a tautology! You could h...

Re: What if God is weak?

Zero volume and infinite mass cannot exist and the Big Bang did not come from this Such a point as described above cannot exist it is forbidden by quantum mechanics Right. I had settled in the classical world of physics. In the quantum world zero volume and infinite density is allowed. But it is a ...

Re: God is an Impossibility

Honestly I had not given it much thought prior to this moment. But, still, that does NOT deflect from the fact that the 'absolute perfection' of the Universe, exists RIGHT HERE and NOW. How could that be shown and demonstrated to be false? Don't forget: you also said that you can improve "absolute ...

EXACTLY as I predicted.

Re: What do people want from philosophy?

True and absolute knowledge can really only be arrived at through falsification Everything else has to treated as only provisionally true or potentially falsifiable Even when the knowledge in question is absolutely true but is not known to be so Which necessarily brings us to the topic of risk mana...

Re: God is an Impossibility

Your claim is only ambiguous, to you. That is because of HOW the actual belief-system works. You are unable to see any thing contrary to your BELIEF. Ad hominem. Try me. Provide something contrary to my belief that is TESTABLE and FALSIFIABLE. If that is what you BELIEVE is true, then so be it. Wel...
