Re: The greatest imaginable is much less than the greatest possible -- Anselm fails

Whatever term we assign for the conclusion of scientific theories or knowledge the critical point is it must comply with requirement of the Scientific Methods There is no such thing as conclusion in relation to scientific theories as any one of them which includes the most rigorous ones could at an...

Re: The greatest imaginable is much less than the greatest possible -- Anselm fails

In addition, it is not an oddity, the term "prove" in relation to scientific proofs is a common usage among many people. The term "prove" in relation to science is predominantly used by non-scientists. And when it's abused - the errors are inconsequential. Scientists constantly attempt to correct t...

Re: The reality is indifferent

The reality is indifferent is a ridiculous statement because reality itself [ as defined above ] is not an entity with consciousness Which is exactly the reason for saying that it is indifferent because it is not a living thing but merely a state of eternal existence It cannot experience emotion be...

Re: The greatest imaginable is much less than the greatest possible -- Anselm fails

Science cannot prove anything because it is inductive and can only disprove by falsification or null hypothesis You are getting too pedantic with words. There are many perspectives to the term 'prove'. Note A rose by any other name, ... Btw, those scientist who are doing real scientific experiments...

Islam Means Peace?

It is very often claimed 'Islam' means peace, but it is not the case. I believe the truth must prevail rather than merely blind beliefs. Here is an interesting video which explains very clearly what "Islam" means exactly via analysis of its root elements S-L-M pictorially. https://www.youtube.com/wa...

Re: Evil Right Wing Fascism will eventually win

Why do evil right wing fascists always win elections - if not now, then in the near future? .... No wonder why fascism persists even to this day. But I do wonder, why is Fascism so popular? I believe the "evil right wing" are winning because the evil left wing are relatively MORE evil. There are al...

Re: Dilemma of beginning of time

We are discussing two things in here: (1) Time cannot be emergent (cannot have any starting point) and (2) Time cannot be eternal. This leads to a dilemma. We first discuss (1) and then (2). 1) Time is the fundamental variable of any dynamical theory. Time therefore cannot be emergent variable of a...

Re: ALL is an Illusion

Illusion is subjected to destruction. Therefore you cannot have a reality which persist. Note "change is the only constant" therefore everything is "destroyed" eventually. Since "change is the only constant" there is no reality which persists permanently. Your theory 'a reality which persists' is a...

Re: The greatest imaginable is much less than the greatest possible -- Anselm fails

As such one can imagine [with reason] the universe [empirical only] but not a Whole and Complete Universe [which is reason only]. [...] Without any empirical-rational ground, one can think of just about anything from the sensible to the nonsensical and illusory ideas like a perfect God. I am willin...

Re: Mind and physical

2. " Mind is a physical state if it is due to physical activity." You are being deceptive here. Mind is not a physical state is as in 1 above. Mind is a human mental state emerging out of physical states. A mental state can experience, i.e. taste of salt. Physical state is arrangement of physical. ...

Re: A Modust Proposal

There are no links between physics and ethics. The scientific approach does not work with ethics.. You may observe, but as with all moral forms you are seeing events rather than things that are infinite in variety and not reproduce-able.. I am not saying some knowledge is impossible, but the qualit...

Re: Islam is equal to a prison

I agree totally except if you are imprisoned in the UK you will not escape Islam as I have read there are loads of Muslims [evil prone ones] and they as a gang are dominant within the prisons.

Re: A Modust Proposal

Everything in a way is an illusion. But one can have reality-as-it-is within an encompassing illusion, i.e. venn diagram as in; ILLUSION-A [reality-as-it-is] ILLUSION-A is a main set while reality-as-it-is is the subset . Within the subset of 'reality-as-it-is' there could be a sub-subset of illusio...
