How do you figure? Back then, physicists thought they had it all figured out. All we have now is a wider scope of knowing fuck-all. Tongue

I don't think anyone has won this alleged debate. Blink

I do know that anyone who has endured reading twelve pages of this dick fight, feels they've lost almost 2 hours of decent life that could have been better spent. But don't let that stop anyone from beating the shit out of any moniker in sight - I still won't give a shit. Drinking Beverage

Since when ? Now there's a new one.
Read my slippery slope argument. It's philosophical in nature; you want to avoid ambiguity and equivocation when at all possible. Failing to do so can lead to a big mess. The principle of defining terms based on preference to enhance communication can be a self-defeating one, if you think it through. That's why, in my opinion, it is proper to stick to as strict a meaning as possible in language. It's based on 'everything being that thing, and nothing else'. In philosophy, science, and argument, that's a big deal. In the real-world, it might not be as big of a deal, but it can become one, if you get too carried away.

I'm not seeing a debate, as this crew is pretty well established in simulation in my mind. What I saw was a chance to yank on Ghost's tail, so I did. Tongue

I mean, we all seem to be rational skeptics, with a coupla eccentricities going on. Wink

Thanks. I'm sorry for attacking you intelligence, but I'm glad it put and end to the discussion.

I guess we can agree to disagree.

It was definitely a loss of time, but the internet and e-beef can be addicting.

It probably be smart, from here on, for me to only reply to threads that can't lead to argument.

Shit happens though.
