Re: What is the character of a woman?

Do you mean that there are no specific traits at all that make us able to tell when a man is a man, or a woman is a woman? That's not true, obviously, since men and women do, in fact, all the time figure out how to do that. Mr Can, because of some specific anatomical traits, in all but a few cases ...

Re: Gender Essentialism

...do differences exist between every man and every woman? Here's a reminder of the sort of differences Mr Can is referring to: I notice that a lot of gender theory talks two different ways. So I'd like to know which of the following two positions is to be considered genuinely "Feminist". 1. There ...

Re: Why Christianity May Be the Most Logical Religion.

You keep claiming (over and over) that all theories are underdetermined, but when it comes to the theories of empiricism and rationalism you have clearly overdetermined one: empiricism. Surely even you can work out that doesn't follow. Once again: I am quite happy to get by with hypotheses and assu...

Re: Essential services during the pandemic

I already did, that's why I asked them. Not feeling it. Fair enough, I wasn't really paying attention. Feel free to submit your work at a later date, keeping in mind relevance to the thread topic, as always. I’m confident that if you apply yourself you can come up with something worthwhile. Thank y...

Re: Essential services during the pandemic

Interrupting the indulged, tolerated continuity of a insulting brat, via mirroring, is the obvious objective in answering VT. It's not obvious to me. Who is the indulged, tolerated and insulting brat? And what do you mean by "mirroring"? Regarding the thread topic, my thoughts are obvious. That's t...

That's very gracious of you, Walker, but why are you reluctant to say what you really feel?

Re: Why Christianity May Be the Most Logical Religion.

I am quite happy to get by with hypotheses and assumptions. I'll happily grant you the above and demote everything to hypotheses/assumption so I can help you see your own double-standard. Spacetime is an assumption. According to you it may not obtain. Reality/existence/universe is an assumption. Ac...

Re: Why Christianity May Be the Most Logical Religion.

...I didn't as ask questions pertaining to the existence of theories. Why bring it up? Because it's Quantum Field Theory and the Theory of General Relativity. I asked you about your sufficiency criterion for the "obtainment" of any particular theory. Obtainment, as I use it, doesn't apply to theori...

Re: Why Christianity May Be the Most Logical Religion.

What would say is necessary; or sufficient for any particular theory to "obtain"? What would suffice for QFT or GR to obtain? The existence of theories isn't in question. You do get some philosophers that wonder what it means for a theory to obtain, but all it takes for a theory to exist is for som...

Re: Bidon is Senile

For Trump, stream-of-consciousness rambling is an effective tactic. Ha! Coupla weeks ago he tells America that he is doing such a great job that he will get the 15 cases of coronavirus down to zero and it will all be over by April. 79% of Republicans believed him. Coupla days back, when the people ...

Re: Bidon is Senile

Feminist author, Rene Denfield, has a book that points out that the new "Victorians" are the Left. They have definite, stifling, rigidly-demanded PC "morals," that they arbitrarily impose on everyone. Sounds rather Victorian. Cripes Mr Can, you really do have no perception of irony, do you? Stiflin...
