Please explain what you mean by the above.
Do you believe that you are the best "philosopher" here?
No. In fact I thought I was making it quite clear that the people who even think that way are all a bit mad.
So, you actually do not even believe that you are one of the 'best philosophers' here anyway.

Which, to some, says 'a lot' about 'how little' faith, confidence, or trust this one has in its own ability here as a 'philosopher'.

Are the people who believe that they are 'competent people in a field' and believe that they are 'better' at 'it', than another, not a 'bit mad' at all, to you?

Also, how confident are you that you are one of the competent people in this field here?

Such as what?
Anything of your choosing.

Please explain what you meant by the words that you wrote and which I am accurately quoting here.
Not some other words. Don't substitute "one of the best ..." when what you wrote was "the best".
Please explain what you were insnuating with the words also the best at other things as well here when you wrote them.

Please explain what you mean by the above. Don't fob me off.
Just put Age on ignore.
On a page asking where is the philosophy he just turns the thread into a childish bickering match.
Once more, it is 'me' who is claimed to have control over all of these people here.
Sculptor wrote: Wed Feb 07, 2024 2:43 pm As you will observe, despite you asking him not to fob you off he does exactly that with more stupid questions.
It's such a shame what is happening to the Forum.
I do not just have power and control over these people and how they react or misbehave here, but 'now' it is 'I' who has power and control over the whole forum here.

Okay. I will remember this.

But what I meant is in the words that I used. Which, if you have forgotten already, you have already clarified that you are not even one of the ones who believes that it is the best philosopher here.

Okay.

And notice how much effort and 'time' they can put into some things I say and claim, but never any effort nor 'time' into other things I say and claim.

But anyway,

I do not think I could break this down, elaborate on this, nor simplify this any further, even for you "flashdangerpants".

If you cannot understand here, then as others here would say, I cannot understand, for you.

Also, why are you presuming or believing that I was 'insinuating' absolutely anything here?

Look, if you want to say and claim that you are not one of the ones who believes that it is not the best philosopher here and/nor also not the best at other things here, then this is all well as good.

But some might just point out and say that you are not coming across as someone with much belief in "yourself" here now.

Then why did you bother to write those words at all? They communicate nothing and explain nothing, did you write them because you are just in the business of writing random pointless shit?

Sculptor is that a threat? Direct or instantiated acceptance is a threat. Sculptor, your so called reasoning, is direct or instantiated acceptance of a conclusion. Being, circumstantial in your replies is one of begging the question? Can you figure that fallacy out begging the question? Being, circumstantial in your replies can you figure out that fallacy?
This is to show ignorance of fallacies, just because you cannot prove it to be true. Composition was one of my majors, just because you cannot prove it to be true. This is to show ignorance of fallacies, composition was one of my majors. Division that is one fallacy. You need to learn one fallacy. Division is what you need to learn.

You might want to learn how to use the quote function as this bit of word salad that you have written is completely without context.
"Composition was one of my Majors".. LOL

Sculptor, asking for your experience is a valid question, and deserves an answer to the question. This is just the first, level of thinking, as I am sure you know. Epistemological privilege to this question is up for argument.

Epistemological privilege to this question is up for argument. As an autonomous agent what do you believe? Opinions are valid, and deserve analysis. Your behavior states that you do not believe in free will? Is this true and why, please?
