Re: What's truth?

. . . even people like Dawkins are now suggesting the 'truths' of the universe at the micro and macro levels may be incomprehensible to us. After all, our 'mid-sized' brains are only designed to extend as long as possible our survivability on THIS (mid-sized) level. And Dawkins may be right to sugg...

Re: What's truth?

but if something isn't true just because we don't know about it then how can we do scinece? Science is done on the premise that things we don't know are true and we have to discover them by investigation, hens we don't know about them now. To assuming that lack of knowledge is a state of untruth wo...

Re: What do you make of this?

I agree with Emuse that the person you were discussing belief with was right about his position as an aflaggulblutist. In other words, your friend was right to desribe himself as being without belief in flaggulblut.

Re: What's truth?

What is a transcendent truth? Can you give an example? The Platonic one , for example.

How ...

For you, Meta

Wee pixie of terror (@ Tweb), I'm sure you remember her, has been bloviating about her purity and intellectual awesomeness in the face of any and all claims that question her position on things. Not an unfamiliar tactic for her, and certainly one that has frustrated many, many, many contributors (in...

Meta vs Augustus

Metacrock, In your opening remarks to Electric, you stated the following: What do they find?
