Re: My point of view

If anything I believe there should be more dialogues between the faiths I again absolutely agree with you. This has been a very fruitful exchange for me and I think it is important that we keep reminding ourselves in our interfaith dialogues of this natural disposition or instinct in us to worship ...

Re: My point of view

I am familiar with the ritual bath, I did it instinctively in my youth before even reading the verses in scripture. I interpret it as a ritual of purifying oneself from material aspects of reality prior to facing God (prayers, worship, etc.), but for a young man to do it instinctively implies some ...

My point of view

Hi John. How are you? Please my friend allow me to contribute to your thread. I remember a time when I was following the Christian Bible which I got from my mother. I have a beautiful story on that which I would like to share with you if you allow me. In my early teenage years(from about 13 or so I...

Re: Cultural Genocide

Here is my modest contribution to this thread. I hope it helps. :D One of the very interesting thing about Islam with respect to the West, is that Prophet Muhammad(peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) is praised and prophesied by NAME in the Jewish Bible. Here is a YouTube video which explains ...

Re: How Jesus could die?

One of the very interesting thing about Prophet Muhammed(peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) in relation to the Jewish Bible is that he is praised and prophesied by NAME in the Jewish Bible.

Re: Is It Possible That This Forum Can Be Used As A Platform To Debate AI?

Hi John, how are you? To respond to your suggestion, I think yes, it should be possible to discuss AI around here. My suggestion, though, if you allow me one, would be to select an appropriate section of the forum to open a thread accordingly. For example, if you want a discussion about the ethical ...

Re: Homework Help... Sort of

Hey all, Can anyone help prove this using the following rules? I was a philosophy major with a concentration in logic, but I graduated a long time ago. Lately, I've been trying to shake the rust off by working through Copi's Introduction to logic 5ed, but I've been working on this one in particular...

Re: Contradicting the law of non-contradiction

More from the realm of Constructive mathematics. Here is a consistent logical system in which both A = B AND A != B are true. Not really! The above quoted statement is itself inconsistent! Any system in which both A=B and A!=B are true is inconsistent. From Wikipedia, we have the following on consi...

Re: Is It Possible To Think Without Language?

So here is where i am at. I was wrong. Hi Logik. This is the first time I am exchanging with you! And you are already saying that you were wrong! Alright, I can't argue that! Averroes is right. And you also added that I am right. Alright. Thank you, but I already knew it! :) It is impossible to thi...

I need not present a counter-argument.
Alright, so you declined the challenge. For the record, I gave you nearly two months to prove your claims as you had claimed possible. Time to move on now!

Re: Is It Possible To Think Without Language?

But, you aren't asking me to write an argument. You are asking me to write a counter-argument. To YOUR claim. And so I am happy to do that just as soon as you present YOUR argument (set of propositions) in lambda calculus. You are still arguing in English?! You so much wanted to abandon English and...

Re: Is It Possible To Think Without Language?

English (and all natural languages) are broken - their Turing-completeness can't even be verified unless their grammar is formally defined. You don't get to insist on "proof" while also insisting that it be proven in a framework which lacks the grammar and semantics to express it. If English (or an...
