Re: How construct a sound Ethical Theory?

I have just one question that has only two possible answers Which are the easiest ones for both computers and humans You left out coins. If all you want to know was the answer to a boolean question - flip a coin. Is this body dead? Heads or tails. Yes or no. 1 or 0. Dead or alive. The only problem ...

Re: "But who am I to try to help you see the light?"

Are you being serious? It leads right into it. You stay because your preference is to stay (for whatever reason), IN THE DIRECTION OF GREATER SATISFACTION, otherwise you would leave. That means leaving was not an option a few moments ago because you would have been moving in the direction of dissat...

To determine death another binary question can be asked

Is there a pulse ? yes there is so the body is alive so it is I
Is there a pulse ? no there is not so the body is dead so it is 0
How many questions do you have to ask?

It is neither valid or sound if it is not empirical.
Then it should give you greater satisfaction to move on (shouldn't it?), not stay on a thread that, in your opinion, is filled with promises and no delivery.
It would.

And yet I stay.

Guess your theory can’t explain that...

Re: "But who am I to try to help you see the light?"

That's your definition. My definition is all axiomatic truth is dogma. I get that because an axiom is not proven. I used the word axiom so we could move forward. Call it dogma, call it a premise, call it whatever you want. The label is irrelevant. All foundational epistemologies are dogma: https://...

Re: How construct a sound Ethical Theory?

Define the algorithm which produces I or 0 as an output when assessing a human torso Is the body alive ? then it is I Is the body dead ? then it is 0 Dead and alive are the only two options so a binary choice can be represented in binary language To determine death another binary question can be as...

Re: How construct a sound Ethical Theory?

So go ahead and define dead and alive using only nouns Mathematics is a language that contains ONLY nouns 0 = dead / I = alive [ which any computer would easily understand because it is in binary ] Treat adjectives as nouns by giving their negative version a 0 and their positive version a I This is...

Re: How construct a sound Ethical Theory?

To simplify the problem into English : we do not know how to define good and evil in computer code Is this because computers are just programmable logic machines with no understanding of what good and evil are ? But could it not be possible to explain morality using only logic ? For example utilita...

Re: Revolution in Thought

... Even the most precise scientific measurements have not revealed what women want other than to hit you on the head when you try to scientifically analyse them. A new path to the truth is needed. You could just try asking them? And if they don’t have the answer? Most people don’t know what they w...

Re: Poll on the validity of two arguments

I will provide a “rational proof” that I am not a “moronic idiot” when you define the criteria for rationality in Lambda calculus. Till then - you can’t frame the debate because you are dogmatic. You are yet to figure out that you can think for yourself. You're proving my many points. Thanks to obl...

You don't really need to be crazy. Being dogmatic is enough! EB You don’t think you are dogmatic by blindly accepting the axioms of classical logic? 😂😂😂😂😂 You are definitely brain-dead.

Re: Knowledge, encrypted in our brains or not

One plausible theory is that the knowledge is encrypted in our brains and it somehow is decoded The OP doesn't understand the Mathematical meaning of encryption/decryption and doesn't understand how it's different to encoding/decoding. https://danielmiessler.com/study/encoding-encryption-hashing-ob...
