Re: P=P is a Contradiction

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taxicab_geometry#/media/File:Manhattan_distance.svg So you are saying that the green line is not shorter then the red, blue or yellow lines. READ YOUR OWN ARTICLE! Idiot. I can read it for you. I can't understand it for you. The green line represents Euclidean distance...

No it didn't.

It disagrees with you, but you can't tell.

Re: P=P is a Contradiction

OK, I am not 100% sure that the universe is not made of chocolate. I am "only" 99.99999999999% sure. Good grief, first you believe that square circles exist, that Einstein"s relativity is bunk and now the universe is made of chocolate. This "debate" is getting too silly. Are we back on square circl...

Re: P=P is a Contradiction

You wrote,"What the fuck does it even mean to "contradict reality". if I say that the universe is made of chocolate that contradicts reality. No, it doesn't. It's an ontological claim. It's as meaningless as all ontological claims (it's untestable). Nobody knows what reality is "made of". Some say ...

Re: P=P is a Contradiction

Suppose someone says, " It is raining here and now and NO water is falling from the sky.". I do not have to go out and check the weather. I already know he is incorrect because reality cannot contradict itself. Yes. It's raining AND it's not raining. It stopped raining. Where is the problem? The ID...

Re: P=P is a Contradiction

YES! And IDEAS can be incorrect they can CONTRADICT reality. What the fuck does it even mean to "contradict reality". Reality is reality. Nothing you SAY about it can DO anything to it. You say the cat is on the mat. The cat isn't on the mat. You described the cat's relationship to the mat incorrec...

Re: P=P is a Contradiction

Suppose the cat is actually on the mat and I say the cat is on the mat and it is not on the mat. That is a contradiction even tho the cat is actually on the mat. The reality cannot contradict itself but one idea can contradict another IDEA. That's not a contradiction. That's just an incorrect descr...

Re: P=P is a Contradiction

Ahh now I get your confusion. When I say that contradictions cannot exist I mean that only noncontradictory statements reflect reality. When you say that contradictions cannot exist you are saying that no two statements can ever contradict each other. Of course 2 ideas can contradict each other. Bu...

Re: P=P is a Contradiction

Good grief! I never said that the idea "vampire" doesn't exist. I implied that the "vampire" does not reflect an actual reality. Bye, enjoy your anger! Then you should pay attention. The idea "vampire" reflects an actual reality. It reflects a state of mind. I am saying that the idea "contradiction...

Re: P=P is a Contradiction

How on earth is that a non-sequitur??? If i say, "vampires dont exist". I am helping some superstitious kid get rid of his fear. If I say that "A" and "NOT A" cannot both be true, that starts the whole of logic. Of course vampires exist! What do you think the kid is scared of, you idiot? Actual vam...

I don't need to scroll back. My "position" is available to me - it's in my head, but not in yours.

Maybe you need to scroll back?

Re: P=P is a Contradiction

So you are saying that I am wrong and that 2 contradictory statements can both reflect reality? Of course two statements can both reflect reality! I literally demonstrated this for you.

Re: P=P is a Contradiction

You wrote, "if "contradictions" don't exist - then why are we even talking about them?" I already answered that! I said that it is important to classify fallacies. That's a non-sequitur. If contradictions don't exist, they are useless towards your goal. Anyway, when you calm down and actually keep ...

Re: P=P is a Contradiction

You wrote, "So lets settle this: Do contradictions exist?" NO THEY DO NOT! Then what does the linguistic term "contradiction" represent? if "contradictions" don't exist - then why are we even talking about them? You say they do. You are lying. i said they don't exist. Anyway, once you calm down and...
