So then, why give into it? He's baiting you. Why take the bait?

Honestly, I think backup is ignorant. He's intentionally provocative and from what I've seen, he loves the escalation. But he has you in a trap. You anticipate that he's going to be difficult so that you are provoking him as often as he provokes you.

Take a breath and let him show himself for who he really is.

He and I don't agree 100% about God, but that hasn't convinced him to flip out me. He hasn't insulted me, and I haven't insulted him. So, yeah, that's credibility.

What's yours?

Taking both as true, we get 9 classes of worlds in which they are true. It turns out that 7 of the 9 classes of worlds are internally inconsistent, and as such aren't possible worlds. The remaining two classes of worlds (via S5's accessibility relation) send each other the requisite information for contradiction. This means that there is not even a single possible world in which "(g⊃□g)&(~g⊃□~g)" is true. Thus, not only is it the case that Metacrock's God doesn't exist, but it is also the case that it is necessarily the case that Metacrock's God doesn't exist.
Chatter comes to my defense:

Metacrock's assumptions are not inconsistent. They have infinitely many models. Here's a simple one: have exactly one possible world which accesses itself and let g hold at this world. Formally, that's a Kripke frame ({w}, {(w,w)}, w ⊧ g).

I don't know if you're mixing up Kripke frames and possible worlds, but your argument looks like nonsense.

I consider your responses often to useful - you know an awful lot more about general theology than I, and the names you mention often make for interesting reading.

Occasionally you let emotion cloud your responses, but we're all guilty of that.

These are not arguments. They just tell us about you.

It is you that can't admit you are wrong or misspoke. This OP is a case in point.
Usually people dont properly address his arguments. It's not an evasion tactic. People refuse to read, he cant do much about that.

Though, i have to say that Royce probably makes the best effort of anyone to reply his posts in their entirety.
