Re: In the Beginning...

Hi arising, That there are senses and inter-subjectivity is pretty much the experience and its a logical conclusion from the experience we have. No. It's got nothing to do with logic, and it is not based on experience. An 'objective' realm and a 'subjective' realm are, experientially speaking, 100% ...

Re: In the Beginning...

Hi nameless, You cannot accept, even hypothetically, the fundamentals that I offer. Thats fine, but I see no point in going around and around about it. Think and believe as you must. Like shouting down a well, I'm out of words. No more arguing. good night Well I think you've done a very good job. Mo...

Re: In the Beginning...

Hi Arising, But its true that from false statements you can also derive true conclusions but you can also derive false ones. I'm not sure if I'm being pedantic, but actually you aren't in a position to say even this. We aren't able to comment on what we can derive because there is no justifiable rea...

Re: In the Beginning...

Hi Arising, Even a 'God' cannot fuck with Logic but 'it' may well be able to tell which amongst all of ours are the true contingent propositions...Although this is just an opinion but I'd like to hear an argument against it. There is an argument against this and the argument holds that God can and d...

Re: In the Beginning...

Hi Nameless, I understand what you are saying, but I cannot even rest on that! I know no 'delusion/illusion'... it's ALL True! Yes, but in order to get people to see this you must act as if they are under a delusion. i think that's what you are doing. You descend to their level, argue with them whil...

Re: In the Beginning...

Hi nameless, I hope you don't mind me butting in but I've experienced a lot of the frustratíon that you might be feeling and have had to give it a lot of thought. Sorry, you really don't understand what I offer, it is very clear to me by your feedback! You are, of course, premature in your dismissal...

Re: free will-how can it exist?

You are talking about death. You can either wait for nature to make you free, or you can always put a bullet in your own head. Either way takes will. It is a death of sorts but perhaps not the death that you think of! The ending of the self is the transcendence of the self, which is also the transc...

Re: In the Beginning...

Hi namless, "2+2=4 works for me in this context!" (is a true statement!)! Or "2+2=4 does not work for me in this context!" (is also a true statement)! I must admit, I think you are a remarkable thinker, but you need to acknowledge that True for you is something quite trasncendent to the normal conce...

Re: free will-how can it exist?

Free-will implies choice. Freewill does not imply or mean using the same "thing" or "source" to choose. Thought choosing red rather than blue or right rather than left is not free-will. It is merely thought making a choice or decision. In order for free-will to exsist there has to be two completely...

Because the title of this thread, "Bayesian Logic". is a straight forward search phrase that one would type into google, Typist has made sure that his name and sig is associated with it.

Was there any other point to the post he just made?

Re: Is Violence Against Women Acceptable?

Please redirect all discussion of The Typist Circus to this wonderful new thread that Nikolai has kindly created. Yes, it is much better for us if all the clicks happen in one place, rather than scattered and frittered over several places. All we need is the one page to climb the rankings, so if yo...

Re: Is Violence Against Women Acceptable?

He wants to generate a furore, in order to get lots of clicks and his sig higher up on search engines. Ideally, he wants this furore to carry on for as long as possible and the threat of banishment to be sufficiently real so as to generate more clicks. He sees himself as a kind of entertainer, drumm...

Re: Is Violence Against Women Acceptable?

you probably need to start by justifying why women have been singled out in the OP? Violence is violence, whoever the recipient - or am I wrong?

This is the start of the debate. Why are we only referring to women?

Re: Is Violence Against Women Acceptable?

Violence against women is as accepted as violence against men, children and old people. And odd question. This is the thread that Typist has created in order to get himself banned. He needs it to be controversial. That is why he has singled out women. To question the acceptability of violence in ge...
