    The Problem with Progressives

    I have read and understood what you are saying, but it isn't clear. It boils down to "women need to be careful as well, like when divers go swimming where there are sharks ", but we still don't know how they should be careful, what is it practically, that they should be instructed to do/not do...

    The Problem with Progressives

    Well, you could probably guess what I was going to say: I disagree with shifting the onus onto the girls, both morally and practically. Scenario : gather all teenage girls into a separate room during sex ed and tell them "look, if you wear a skirt, and maybe flirt a bit too much, or make the...

    The Problem with Progressives

    I think that perhaps the most interesting point that has been made by feminists most recently is not the "all men are rapists/sexual assaulter" meme, which is the usual internet flame war thing of caricaturing the opposing side and not addressing the strongest arguments in play. I think you're...

    I'm surprised you think that's my motive. I'm certainly not scared of offending anyone here. It's more about the fact that I feel my points are mostly being ignored and the premise of the conversation was a bit silly (atheism requires less thought.) Because certainly thinking about the origins...

    Atheism [thread split Does communism suck ?]

    There is a confusion of terms here, asserting the non existence of something is not the same as not having a concept for something. Thinking "X does not exist" is 100% a thought. Lack of belief in god is exactly the same as "belief in the non existence of god", it isn't the same as "lack of any...

    Neither. Babies do not yet have the semantic or cognitive capacity to say «X exists» or «X does not exist» ??? They have no belief on this one way or another ? Saying «god does not exist» is a belief, a belief is a mental and propositional stance on the disposition of the world. On the other...

    strangely I find this offensive, projecting intentionality onto to the world is a basic cognitive thing that we do, most societies are either traditionally animist/polytheist or deist, deism having usually come out of animism where people decide there is one over arching intentionality instead...

    Being androgynous

    Dangerous to build socio-psychological theories using memes/stereotypes as our concepts. Othering. Dehumanizing. False. And then, the fuckin cherry on top : Explaining the meme with unprovable untestable evolutionary biological theories. Shoddy reasoning from start to finish imo.

    Really what I was taking issue with, was this characetrization in Cog's post of large swarths of populations (particularly females apparently, in his own words) as basic bitches. A kind of abstract and reductive dehumanizing stereotype/meme that is poorly defined and doesn't really describe...

    There is no authority great enough to stop you from having an opinion. I am simply saying that in my opinion, your opinion is biased, not because you are a man, but because you are a fallible human being subject to cognitive bias. As I am also in many instances. (but not in this one of course...

    introduction to formal logic + truth tables with an annoying card question

    Well I did say the interpretation of "or else" could be subject to controversy, I only came across the updated version later on. I will agree yet again that the puzzle is poorly worded. You can find the intended interpretation in it, but it's also misleading. So you know, fair enough !

    introduction to formal logic + truth tables with an annoying card question

    Asking a program to solve it in that way is useless, you're just telling a computer what to print in advance and cutting out the relevant possibilities. These are statements with a truth value so the factors are queen/no queen and ace/no ace. Your program is not adapted to solving the problem as...

    @Firehazard159 Well, like I said in the previous post, I am kind of exhausted, so I hope you get something out of this. This being a self contained purely theoretical puzzle, the soundness of the argument is circularly given by the fact that you accept the first two premises, (and decide...

    introduction to formal logic + truth tables with an annoying card question

    The order in which the premises are stated changes absolutely nothing, they both apply just the same to the reasoning. If I say 1) (p->q) V (~p->q) [(queen implies ace) OR (not queen implies ace) 2) p It's exactly the same result. The premises constrain the interpretation of the table. The...

    introduction to formal logic + truth tables with an annoying card question

    @washti Maybe I haven't been clear. It's not a question of whether or not OR has a "cannot confirm" option. You're right, it doesn't. Or is simply an operator that gives a value of "true" or "false" according to the set of rules that govern it. Premises of the puzzle (in case of inclusive OR)...

    Saying "maybe the killer will murder you anyway" does not invalidate the statement she made.
