Re: The Existential Crisis

If it doesn't communicate anything testable it's not a claim What is the test for that claim? The test is your inability to test his claims! Not having a test prevents you from ever testing/reproducing his experiment and seeing what he's seeing. You don't know what series of observations caused the...

Re: The Existential Crisis

At least Skepdick understood [maybe not agree with everything] what I am trying to communicate. I bet that if you tried to describe in any detail which parts of your reasoning he supports (in similar terms to any that you intended) I could make you regret it. My thesis is very complex and within th...

Re: The Existential Crisis

Arguments don't demonstrate anything. well once again you are making a giant claim about the world for the sake a trivial little dispute and I still consider that to be pointless. Using a narrative argument to explain how a narrative fallacy renders all argument worthless is something you should do...

Re: The Existential Crisis

I suppose I could have been clearer. His thesis was split between in two sentences in that attempt. One describes the "most critical" cause as the thing he attempts to describe in his argument. Everything else being not proximate, and secondary. In context, this was his rejection of the option I ga...

Re: The Existential Crisis

He rejected that though, specifically stating that "All other causes are not proximate thus secondary." This suggests that he does understand exclusivity in the normal manner, and that he is communicating his ideas in that context. For somebody who insists that words have meaning... proximal adj. V...

Re: The Existential Crisis

You're boring me, we can let him decide for himself which meanings he wishes to communicate using words and stuff. I gave him a conclusion that might just at a stretch be supported by his arguments: "my thesis is that one of the potential factors in the origin of theism might be an existential dilem...

Re: The Existential Crisis

Yawn. He is either caliming that ALL theistic religious beleif originates as he describes or he is not. His problem is that he is trying defend his claim as a weak one, but demands it be understood as a strong one. One contains an if-and-only-if claim, the other does not. If you want to defend an i...

Re: The Existential Crisis

My thesis conclusion is this; The most critical cause of theism is the existential crisis/dilemma traceable to DNA/RNA. All other causes are not proximate thus secondary. Pick one. If you are claiming that all alternative causes are insufficient, then you are claiming necessity on part of your argu...

Re: The Existential Crisis

My thesis did not insist it MUST happen, i.e. the existential crisis/dilemma MUST lead to theism. My thesis is the origin and cause of theism is driven by the existential crisis/dilemma traceable to the DNA/RNA. Therefore a genuine-clinging [not pretending] to theism is traceable to the existential...

Re: The Existential Crisis

Where I wrote 'link' and the intention is 'cause', it is a matter of semantics. Note Principle of Charity. Show me which premise is false? It doesn't matter if the premises are true or false, in fact your argument is so weak we can even let you have the conclusion just for laughs. It's simple, even...

Re: The Existential Crisis

You are SO ignorant and stupid. That is because your "reptillian" and barbarian brain is dominating your consciousness. If one were to google, the term "link" is related to "cause" .. Two examples from the millions.. Correlation is a link but not a cause. You are linked to your uncle but caused by ...
