Re: God is an Impossibility

WHEN you insist 'absolute perfection' IS an impossibility, HOW being LESS WRONG of being RIGHT is that? You need to define what "absolute perfection" is in a way that is TESTABLE and FALSIFIABLE before I can answer you. From the doctrine of verificationism (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Verificatio...

Re: God is an Impossibility

By improving ourselves we gain CONTROL (e.g determinism) so as to ensure the well being of the individual, the others, humanity. Where does the 'others' and 'humanity' come into play with you "timeseeker". You just not very long ago wrote: Uhhh. No. I just like living. Like every other living thing...

Re: God is an Impossibility

Being LESS WRONG is not the same as being RIGHT. Two different things, see? WHEN you insist 'absolute perfection' IS an impossibility, HOW being LESS WRONG of being RIGHT is that? Also, what you capitalized in red highlights, for others EXACTLY what I have been saying. That is exactly WHERE, and HO...

Re: What do people want from philosophy?

So, REALLY it was NOT OBVIOUS. It was just an, miss/informed, guess, RIGHT? Yes. I never claimed otherwise. Being less wrong implies being better at guessing. So, what am I now to interpret you when you use the word 'OBVIOUS' from now on? When, and if, you use the term 'some thing is obvious to you...

Re: Comparing philosophies, creationism is the best.

"The" dictionary, any dictionary, does NOT tell you how to use any thing. Every dictionary is just a guide to how words are sometimes defined and meant. You missed the point. But i did not miss the point. I write in a particular way so that others gain a particular perspective. This is how I evoke ...

Re: God is an Impossibility

You are TRYING TO GET so far off track, as you PURPOSELY can, from what I am actually writing, saying, and meaning, so that that BELIEF that you are so dearly trying to to hang on to will still make some sort of sense, to you. You need stop accusing me of "purposefully getting off the track" when i...

Re: God is an Impossibility

absolute perfection is unconditional, therefore there can never be absolute perfection within the conditional empirical world. But I have NEVER been talking about any thing within some thing. I am taking about the ALL-THERE-IS, sometimes known as the Universe, Itself. The Universe is NOT conditiona...

Re: What do people want from philosophy?

Something can be both true and false (obvious) at the same time as the "truth/falsity" paradigm are duals which exist at the "same time but different respects". I may look at a tree and see it for what it exists. This is obvious. What is not obvious is movement through time and materiality which le...

Re: What do people want from philosophy?

How can an obvious FACT that is obvious to YOU have the possibility of being WRONG, also? Because I don't think in absolutes like you do. I take informed guesses. So, REALLY it was NOT OBVIOUS. It was just an, miss/informed, guess, RIGHT? However, what we are talking about is YOUR very own remark t...

Re: What do people want from philosophy?

OK :) So fix it. If it's so easy/obvious. Hang on! I ask you a simple clarifying question, from a completely OPEN viewpoint, and you respond back like this. WHY? Now I have to ask you more simple clarifying questions; Fix what exactly? What is 'it' that you are referring to in relation to "easy" an...

Re: Comparing philosophies, creationism is the best.

Can you give me some background in terms of what you've studied/read/done? I don't use the word 'believe' like the dictionary tells me to use it. "The" dictionary, any dictionary, does NOT tell you how to use any thing. Every dictionary is just a guide to how words are sometimes defined and meant. ...

Re: God is an Impossibility

Surely you are not asking for empirical evidence? Yes I am. Watch and you will see Me do it right before your eyes. WHERE IS THE EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE that absolute perfection can NEVER arise from the empirical at all? That is a very stupid question and you failed in logic. A question in and of itself...

Re: God is an Impossibility

Apologies, my BAD communicating again. I meant a MOVING horseless carriage, but admittedly forgot to add that part in. You are so RIGHT that of course people of those days could have conceptualized a horseless carriage, just sitting there not doing anything. Again, my apologies for NOT recognizing ...

Re: Comparing philosophies, creationism is the best.

HOW, do you use the word 'believe'? Can you give me some background in terms of what you've studied/read/done? Yes I can. But I am NOT going to. You do NOT need to know any of this to answer THE simple question which is in direct relation to what you said. I need to know what shared knowledge we ha...

Re: God is an Impossibility

This is your argument; P1. Absolute perfection is an ideal. P2. Absolute perfection is an impossibility in the empirical. C. Absolute perfection therefore exist only theoretically. That would be like me in the 17th century TRYING TO argue; P1. Horseless carriages is an ideal P2. Horseless carriages...
