Re: Are all models wrong?

George Box claimed that ‘All models are wrong but some are useful’. But if that claim is true, then at least one model is not wrong – in which case, the claim is false. You have started with a falsehood If you are trying to suggest that "All models are wrong but some are useful" is a model? You are...

Re: Arithmetic Foundations are Tautological and Circular

As for what is "human" and what is homo sapiens, that also is fairly easy to find on the Internet. If I wanted the answer that's on the Internet - I would ask the internet. I am asking you because the answer I am looking for is in your head, not on the Internet. HS is a subset of humans which also ...

Re: Arithmetic Foundations are Tautological and Circular

Given the easy accessibility of these facts, the only person who is "stupid" here is yourself. The contents of your mind aren't on the internet. The question: Do you equate "humans" with "homo sapiens"? Is directed at you, not Google. You have NO argument. You are very observant. What I do have is ...

Re: TRUMP AND IRAN

I'd like to canvas opinions as to why Trump unilaterally dumped Obama's Iran nuclear deal of 2015. Because Obama made the deal. the last 3 yrs of Trump rule is about removing Obama legacy - for good or bad. for Trumps ego's sake. With the entire world scratching its head, whilst urging the US to re...

Re: Reincarnation. Who or what would reincarnate? (explained)

The point is, sure we die, the brain is dead, but a certain amount - perhaps just a reference point back to the Operating System - the 3rd party intellgence - then puts that reference into the matter of a rebirth. HOW? ...IT (the 'OS') is more pervasive than an actual OS. IT is at the core of all e...

Re: Point Zero Tunneling and "Time" Mining

I don't object or affirm anything. Remember arising uk's continuous "why don't you post recent sources saying particles are 99.999% empty....oh wait you can't..." debacle...and how that ended (ie me posting multiple sources and him shutting up)? No I am looking for a philosopher that either knows m...

Re: Arithmetic Foundations are Tautological and Circular

"maths and logical language" and writing happened far later than you suggest. The first attempts are recording meaning were all about recording the grain stores. There was nothing of the sort before 6000 years ago. Evidence of maths and logical language that you suggest are necessary for "humans" m...

Re: Arithmetic Foundations are Tautological and Circular

Completely and palpably bollocks. Humans predate all of these things. Given the continuous timeline between the Big Band and NOW, could you draw a line for us? When do you think "humanity" first appeared? For clarity's sake. Do you equate "humans" with "homo sapiens"? For an argument can definitely...

Re: Point Zero Tunneling and "Time" Mining

Just so I am clear about how irrational you are...what percentage of certainty would you place that I am the one generating the voice inside my head? Well ignoring discussions about "rationality" and "irrationality" and what an "I" is, I'd say about 99.99...%. Stubborn foolishness to the extreme, s...

Re: Reincarnation. Who or what would reincarnate? (explained)

Oh do tell. What is you understanding of how consciousness, memory and identity are generated by the brain? Neuroscience has made great leaps. It is a growing field of knowledge. I can hardly be expected to cover an entire branch of science in one post. By contrast there is nothing on the other sid...

Re: Individualism vs. Collectivism

A good way to verify the dominance of the collective in secular society in America is how politicians and media discuss voters. There are no Americans but just members and advocates of various collectives. i read of black voters, white voters, women voters, gay voters, Jewish voters and a host of o...

Re: Reincarnation. Who or what would reincarnate? (explained)

Purveyors of the reincarnation myth so often have a shocking poor understanding of how consciousness, memory and identity are generated by the brain. It only takes five minutes in an old people's ward, or spending time with a person that has had a stroke, or head injury to know that the chances of ...
