Re: Kierkegaard or Nietzsche?

I think questioning the value of pursuing is different from questioning abstract principles. A real philosopher doesn't make a trial of intentions, he argues with contents. The only one who questioned the value of abstract principles was Kant, but Kant was a philosopher, and he provided a system of ...

Re: Kierkegaard or Nietzsche?

Sure Nietzsche was a philosopher? Did he ever write some of ontology? Logic? Gnoseology? Metaphysics? One who confuses christianity with catholicism could ever be a philosopher?

Re: Universe can't be infinite.

Yes, you're perfectly right, doc, loose one and you loose infinity.. But I think infinite has no beginning, otherwise it wouldn't be that. And that would be another reason to consider universe not infinite.

Re: Universe can't be infinite.

Does not follow, just because infinity has no beginning or end, does not preclude there being more than one infinity. The Universe could be infinitely infinite. I also find it interesting that you are attempting to apply an abstract mathematical concept to the physical universe. A steady state univ...

Re: Does reality really exist?

When can we trust our senses with 100% reassurance? We can trust when reality is rationality. If something exists, that's for its inner rationality, otherwise it couldn't exist. What is rational, is necessarily also real. «The children of a sterile person» is in itself a current thought in everyone...

Re: Does reality really exist?

For example, with an apple, I can see it, feel it, taste it and smell it. But if I'm dreaming or under hypnosis or drug induced, the apple then isn't real. And being awake may not matter if the apple is an illusion or if my senses are altered to create that apple. So does reality really exist? When...

Universe can't be infinite.

Hi everybody, Consider universe as infinite. This means it has no beginning, no ending, no borders, no center. In every point you will be in it, you will have infinite points in front of you, infinite points behind you, infinite points below you, inifinite points above you, you will have inifinite p...
