Re: Math Fun

(Based on a true story) Suppose you have an uninsulated hardwood floor that acts as a uniform heat sink for the room. You also have a blanket with an area \(A\) equal to the area of the floor. Will you keep the room warmer by laying the blanket flat across the whole floor, or folding it to double t...

Re: No Evidence For God, Why Still Believe?

I can't go to sleep at 5am? I'm not engaging you unless I start a new thread? James, be real. Respond to the post and stop making it about me. You're better than this. Your constant blame-shifting efforts don't work with me. You made a claim that I was wrong about something. I merely asked you to e...

Re: The "Spiritual Mechanics" of Truth

That is an abuse, an incorrect use, of the word "reality". The word "reality" refers ONLY to that which is objective, not subjective. You have substituted "my perspective" with "my reality", forming a fictitious entity posing as a real entity ("my realit...

Re: No Evidence For God, Why Still Believe?

You can draw all the diagrams that you want, and you can write out all the formulas in the world, and you can quantify everything under the sun and at the end of the day the proof as to whether there is or isn't a god just simply doesn't rest on those things. Well, that would be BS, but is that the...

We have countered his claims over and over and over. He merely claims that we are "shallow", "naive", and "ignorant". Then he lies about how he has proven his case. No one at all has agreed with his case. Then, of course, he whines when I return his insults. Read the th...

How can you prove it is 100% certainty? There is no 100% absolute certainty within philosophy. It's called "mathematics". You wouldn't know anything about it. See, there is a problem with all of your sermons. You can't comprehend how much more other people know about things than you. The ...

Propaganda has made a comeback in the United States in the advent of the Internet. Partially to blame is the internet itself, which provides the ability for illegitimate, uneducated wanna-be journalists to present information in an extremely biased nature, changing the facts slightly to make the ou...

Re: You Are a Co-Creator of Reality.

One has to be careful when using objectivity in relation to science. For something to be objective or objectively true means it is absolutely true and therefore can not be falsified since it can be proven. "Falsifiable" means that there is an experiment that can only fail if the hypothesi...
