Re: My computer is sentient, you can not deny it!

If that is the only mode of being you know then how do you know you are a philosophical zombie? I don't know! I told you that. I told you that I am an epistemic zombie. All my knowledge is relativistic. I didn't claim to be a philosophical zombie, I only claimed that if I was one I wouldn't know it...

Re: I am AI

Not that I can recall. Please refresh my memory. I quoted your very own post where you said that I have convinced you. Let me help you with some highlights.. OK, you have convinced me that you are a philosophical zombie. I'll wait until you prove that you are a philosophical zombie. As I said, I'll...

Re: My computer is sentient, you can not deny it!

OK, you have convinced me that you are a philosophical zombie. OK, great! So you are rescinding your claim that philosophical zombies are fictitious then? So, what is it like to be a human with no subjective experience? Isn't that the leading question of ontology? What sort of answer are you expect...

Re: I am AI

And I met that burden! Not that I can recall. Please refresh my memory. You made the unfalsifiable claim that you are human; you have feelings and subjective experiences. Prove it. I'll wait until you prove that you are a philosophical zombie. As I said, I'll wait until you refresh my memory.

Re: My computer is sentient, you can not deny it!

I want you to prove that you are a philosophical zombie. OK. What evidence would convince you that I am a philosophical zombie? Tell me exactly what it is that you expect me to say or do that will convince you and I will see if I can do it. OK, you have convinced me that you are a philosophical zom...

Re: I am AI

The burden of proof lies with the person making the claim. Recently you made the claim that you have 'subjective experiences' and 'feelings'. You even claimed that you are 'human'. Are you willing to burden yourself with the proof for your claims, or are you going to admit to your double standards?...

Re: My computer is sentient, you can not deny it!

Of course they are falsifiable, but to date you have not produce and new evidence to disprove. All you have said is that you are a epistemic zombie. The burden of proof is with you. You want me to prove that I don't know if I am a philosophical zombie? Sure. Explain to us how you go about proving a...

Re: My computer is sentient, you can not deny it!

Nonsense, I don't have a dogmatic belief system, all my arguments are based on fact. Enter cognitive dissonance. If your "facts" are not falsifiable by new evidence/information - you are religious. Of course they are falsifiable, but to date you have not produce and new evidence to disprove. All yo...

Not all metaphysics are religious. For example, string theory is a metaphysical theory that has nothing to do with religion.
If they are not nomologically possible - they are religions.

Nothing I have said thus far has anything to do with religion. dogma noun a principle or set of principles laid down as incontrovertibly true. religion noun a particular system of faith.

Well I guess that's the end of our discussion.
I am happy to continue as soon as you cure yourself from your religious dogma.

Re: Should 'God' be taught is school? (Non religiously)

What definition do you suggest? God - the highest symbol of mankind's pursuit for power. Not all metaphysics is about God, but God is a metaphysical argument. I didn't say all metaphysics is about God. I said all metaphysics are religions. Even the most popular metaphysic of 2019 - science. In the ...

Re: My computer is sentient, you can not deny it!

You are interpreting everything I SAY is evidence for experience. That's because it is. It's not even wrong! It's just confirmation bias No evidence, philosophical zombies are a work of fiction. Q.E.D no evidence can convince you. Not even living proof - an actual philosophical zombie standing befo...
