What an outrage! I'll have you know that this forum presently holds BOTH of the single best philosopher ever to have lived, along with at least five different people who can explain to you in depth exactly why philosophy is a failed endeavour and what it should be doing to become a completely important way to blend religion with science which is quite obviously a thing everyone should want to do right this minute. Who could possibly scorn such an excellent resource?

*probably the best philosopher ever to have lived. As that philosopher, i can tell you with some detail reasons why philosophy as a subject matter is stalled, but it's not a failed endeavor as a whole, only the way it's typically, and most of all academically, done.

Hahahaha. Every time you claim to be the *probably the greatest philosopher ever to live, I'm going to to remind you that you posted this thread.

Well i'm not going to respond every time with the fact that you're confusing a technical and a vernacular understanding of the fallacy, and willfully so.

That should be fun for me.

Please explain how determining that there is such a thing as a true scotsman fixes the no true scotsman thing in whichever of those senses you hope will get you out of the sane and simple alternative of just saying "oops I misunderstood the problem".

What is the vernacular understanding of an informal fallacy supposed to be?

So do you want to say something about the OP or move to the other topic or what?

Is there any need? I made my point with trademark sarcasm, and then you came along and demonstrated it to be fair comment. we're sort of done unless I want to spend a bunch of time picking on you for giggles, which doesn't seem all that fair. But more importantly, also not all that interesting.

HAHAHA.
I think were people on the Forum to actually read and then take seriously anything that appears in the magazine, there might be a tiny bit of scope for the magazine to take the Forum seriously, rather than consider it an embrarrassing mutant sibling.
But right now the contributions to the Forum are rather palid.

There would be significant improvement if you stopped posting.

Not as palid as my bust of Pallas.
