Many folks think they're experts at something. They're not.

Tony's contest creates too many questions. I had the most I have ever had overnight.

Many people hold grudges simply because they disagree with someone. A Youtuber I used to watch often posted a video many months ago expressing his anti-gay views. Prior to that, his video like ratio was around 100-10. Now, with no further controversy

People don't know the difference between truth and facts...

Truth is a more specific detail extrapolated from a general rule. Facts are general rules constructed from many details.

No, I was rebuffing Doopy's assertion.

I meant my question for Doopy. I think you and I were posting at the same time.

Truth is data that correlates with reality. Facts are truths which have been experienced.

"Scientific facts" are, by the way, educated guesses not integrally tied to any truth.

I guess I'm just coming to grips (or gripes?) with how dearly this society needs a good education in the underpinnings of philosophy...

Doopy: How do you know what you have experienced is an accurate representation of what actually is? How can you be certain of the reality represented by a truth? Truth and fact must be defined separate from perception or experience.

Doopy Remedial Americanism

You can't know. Therefore, truth is certain, but fact has only a very high probability of being accurate.

A truth is not something contained within a mind. It is universal. It is an independent thing, merely accessed by a mind.

Doopy Remedial Americanism

A concept is either true or not true, but our perception thereof has no bearing on whether or not it is true.

Doopy: Does a table exist outside the mind? Or is the reality just a collection of stuff that our brain interprets as being a table?

Doopy Remedial Americanism
07/18/13 6:53 pm

Of course it exists outside of our mind. What that question really just asks is whether it's called a table outside of our minds.

Correption Under a Bridge

It is a question of forms, not names. There isn't a quantum, chemical, or other reaction or interaction I know of that distinguishes a table from a chair aside from an observer. Do you know if any such distinction?

Doopy Remedial Americanism
07/19/13 2:07 am

Again, that's just a question about what to call it. It's still there.

I don't understand what your perspective is. I'm not clear you understand mine. I don't think us repeating ourselves again will help. :-)

I know what you're talking about. I've read my philosophy.

Correption Under a Bridge

Perhaps, then, you can tell me how forms exist in reality independent of consciousness and what this all has to do with names?

Doopy Remedial Americanism
07/19/13 5:34 am

The "form" is really just a name by which we address an object. If you're not aware of a table, it's still there. That's why you can stub your toe on one in the dark. In that instance, you might even give it a more colorful name.

Additionally, I find the whole point moot, as I believe in an omniscient God. Nothing EVER escapes His consciousness.
