Given that all birds are animals,
And some animals are pets
It follows that, some birds are definitely pets


Is this argument valid invalid??
Invalid, as "some birds" are not necessarily included in the group "some animals."

Re: "Do no harm" as a failed moral framework

Ok so first I want to thank the fucking bots for deleting my thread about Applied Ethics. I want to thank them because, I made that post to save the world and transform society, but now I see that the world is a bunch of rigged garbage that isn't even worth saving, and that the world is ran by robo...

Re: mind the mind

The way mind processes data reflects in its offspring, the computer. However, the coordination capabilities of latter improve continuously, whereas mind seems to have problems handling the increase of external & internal, objective & subjective data. More often than not, this is blamed on its hardw...

Re: You have no image of yourself.

And yet you are, but you do not need an image of yourself to BE...BEING is without doubt or error....and because there is here ''Pure Awareness Beingness'' already... is why you are able to create an imagined/illusory image out of yourself. You have never seen your original face...All attempts to s...

Re: On the issue of "harm"

OK, so in the following scenarios there is no harm: 1) Bob creates a virus that steals .004 cents (4/10 of 1 penny) from every bank account in the world. Because this is merely 4/10 of 1 penny, no one knows it is even taken. This is called "penny shaving" and is the scam seen in the movie Office Sp...

Re: Infanticide

Everyone has missed the idea which puts the question of infanticide into a universal human as opposed to pragmatic societal perspective. My view is far more universal than yours shall ever be. As I always look at the entire human race on this blue marble revolving around a star with possibly infini...

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

Arising-uk mentions phenomenology with reference to Prof Needleman. I looked it up in Stamford Dictionary of Philosophy. Phenomenology is commonly understood in either of two ways: as a disciplinary field in philosophy, or as a movement in the history of philosophy. The discipline of phenomenology ...

Re: The struggle the USA faces in accepting kindness for all

“Democracy extends the sphere of individual freedom, socialism restricts it. Democracy attaches all possible value to each man; socialism makes each man a mere agent, a mere number. Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word: equality. But notice the difference: while democracy see...

Re: Infanticide

Infanticide the crime of killing a child within a year of birth. I’ve learned that many secularists on this site do not believe in objective eternal values. How can there be if there is no Source of existence within which eternal values originate? Consequently we either create our own subjective va...

Re: Prostitution and Eternal Values

Just to show you how much humans didn't know about themselves, let alone the universe. As it turns out, the word eternal is probably a falsehood unless of course entropy is a falsehood instead. But then it's currently up for grabs. Certainly, nothing we currently know of is infinite. So largely the...
