    Knowledge: Inherently Infinite or Inherently Terminable?

    I can see why it may appear that way. I've actually been quite busy over the past two weeks. Furthermore, sometimes I do not reply to threads for a while (such as my Selflessness or Homsexuality/Evolution threads) because I see a lot of overly tangential arguments being made. For instance...

    Knowledge: Inherently Infinite or Inherently Terminable?

    There are different tiers of knowledge. Tiers explain their preceding tiers. Tiers create a deeper understanding of something, A, in a transitive-property-like fashion. (A=B, B=C, C=D, therefore A=D.) Does our understanding ever reach a point where we need not ask "why" any further? Does...

    The Efficacious Forum Participant

    Perhaps I should have been more clear. By "debate," I am not referring to formal debate, though the guidelines are generally transferrable. I am referring to debate in the same sense as discussion—where an idea is contemplated and argued. Sorry for the confusion.

    When I made this thread it was entitled "The Efficacious Forum Participant." I have not changed it since, nor did I even know that titles could be changed.

    There was no planning involved in this introduction. This was simply an unwieldy amount of Ne being spewed at those with a moment to spare. I'm not entirely sure what you are referring to about "forum browsing." I don't see your objective.

    The Efficacious Forum Participant

    This thread was intended to guide those who seek help with their debate technique—not to ensure that they conform to what I believe constructs a worthwhile debate. Furthermore, part of what I believe constructs a worthwhile debate is when all participating individuals "only agree with someone...

    Many of us spend our free time here on this forum. This forum is a place where ideas are born, spread, and grown. In order for an idea to be born, one must wonder; in order for an idea to be spread, one must convince; and in order for an idea to be grown, one must consider. The Birth of the...

    I think I know what you mean: sometimes we make decisions without all of the information, and sometimes we make decisions when we have gathered a lot of information. What I still don't quite understand is how I have exhibited a preference of judging over perceiving. Could you provide examples...

    I don't see INTP as a goal, per se, as I do believe that all personality types have their advantages and disadvantages (and not to mention that I believe MBTI is flawed, though still relatively accurately), but I have found that my prospecting trait easily dominates my judging trait. I'm not...

    The Math Thread

    Correct, nice job! I realized the mistakes I made when I tried to calculate those, so I apologize for the confusion. Here are a couple of other ways that this can be solved:

    Any last guesses? I'll post the answer in a couple of hours.

    The Math Thread

    You're exactly right about this being the equivalent of the Monty Hall problem. I modeled this off of it (despite a few bumps along the road). With that said, does his original guess influence the probabilities? Hint: Does his original guess influence whom of the three he meets with?

    The Math Thread

    Ok, I'm deeply sorry. There's still a flaw. (Don't hurt me. :p) I am almost positive I have it right this time. Here is the revised story problem: I worked out the math: it works now. Sorry for the confusion.
