It should be said that massive amounts of illogic would not exist without the abstractions of human languages.
?? I don't follow.
welcome clarification for discussion.
For example, people talk about "God" and the use of the male pronoun has an extraordinary number of people who should have been educated beyond such naivete who believe that there is a large humanlike male spirit that created the universe and is mostly focused on the sexual habits of a type of hominid that lived the surface of one rocky planet for a million or two years (depending on how you define "human") of the universe's 13.8 billion years.
thanks for reply, but still dumb/don't follow
i'm not all that smart sadly - but welcome understanding/becoming smarter.......
on sure about the whole he/she pronoun thing fits in in our reply to me - welcome understanding.
BTW i'm a universal humanist and personally do not place any importance in those pronouns (men (I'm a man if that is important for you to know about me - it is not in anyway for me per my self image - but if it might be for you just informing you of this fact)women) i view human as more - infinately moreso important then one's sex.
13.8....noted, you are informed WRT to what we know to date concerning about the age of our universe (of course in the future that age me change - esp. since we assumed that the universe was "slowing down"................until we found via observation the OPPOSITE!!!!!!!!!!! - talk about a 180 from the prior assumed ................and the observastations must have been "iron clad" - for i never heard any controversy about the conclusions (only about the opposite assumptions) found in 98.
I'm an Athiest BTW - not sure if that matters WRT to you or this thread.
note for anyone reading:
I'm not at "War" with God, nor with anyone of Faith - of any religion. as long as they of goodwill they can beleive in any God or interpret/missinterpret their "Bibles"
I've spent many years reading "bibles" personally as an athiest..............not via "doubt" but via finding if said works conform with my person compass.
my finding is what is to be expected - if one is able (all those who do not mandate a "unified WORD") read each work as separate and ignore the "Sole Scripture" bullshit)- can parse the flowers from the weeds.
this method works for all works - i've read some of the Koran BTW. as i have the "bible"....................1/2 of both are flowers. the other are weeds.
sadly if ranted and got off course.
i sadly still do not follow your point Sir/Madam. ;-/.
