Actually number 2 is wrong. Recently in the news there was a woman that was pregnat twice. The embryos were 2 weeks apart and the hope was that the younger one would catch up in development. I do believ though she had been taking fdertility drugs.
Although it is difficult, in some cases, even with a full erection the pathway from the bladder is not fully blocked. Ever tried to pee first thing in the morning? Full erection so it gets messy, but especially with a full bladder it is possible.
I am not limited to believing the Bible, it is part of many other things I believe in and I still learn everyday as an individual, I glean things from the Bible that are great for living and I have found out from experience they hold up well and so do many other things I have looked into, I have no no desire for limits or to blindly follow something and never have. I question things.
I can tell you will say anything to avoid the Q.......oh well.
I am only mocking what you do to protect your faith. Are you getting psycological? I didn't know you had it in you. Keep studying. I can't conversate with a person that isn't honest with themselves. You have constantly lied.
All those things you posted "may" indeed be true (when proven). And when proven, they are universal truth because they universally apply to the domain of humans. But certainly NONE of them are absolute truth. They are relative to a domain - therefore impossible to be absolute!
An absolute is something that has always been, and will always be the case, forever and ever amen. An absolute truth is eternal and “must be true under every possible circumstance". It certainly is a possible circumstance that language did not exist, or that mind did not exist, or that logic or the word truth did not exist at some point in time. Prior to the earth existing, it is a possible circumstance that no truths existed at all, let alone an absolute truth, since an absolute truth must be true forever.
But nothing can be true before it is proven, or when no language or mind existed. Truth requires a proof preceding the conclusion. You can't assert a truth without a proof. There cannot be absolute truth because there is no system or context that could show its truth. Therefore, nothing can be proven by humans to be absolute!
Whether or not absolutes can be proven, they may still exist. To assume that absolutes do not exist is a mistake, here is why:
Quite simple, absolutes MAY exist. If they do, giving an example of an absolute and discussing the matter then becomes word play. If there is the existence of absolutes, there is no proof but that lack of proof does not prove the case otherwise. Make it about science or logic if you feel the need but it is what it is. Language is incapable of proving the absolute one way or the other. Of course, that last statement, like others, could be misinterpreted as an absolute but it is not, simply by the fact I cannot provide proof of it, the clause exists within the statement.
Negative truth fallacy: that, because a premise cannot be proven false, the premise must be true; or that, because a premise cannot be proven true, the premise must be false.
Bovine, I substituted "absolute" with "INVISIBLE PINK UNICORNS" to illustrate that with your line of reasoning, anybody can invent any wild imaginative nonsense. And your response would be: we cannot dispute it as it may exist.
This is simply false. We can not only dispute it, but there is a possibility that we can prove that assertion is not the case by simply showing something contradictory about it.
Absolute truth has nothing to do with science. Absolute truth is a truth is true for every possible circumstance. It was eternally true forever in the past, and will be eternally true forever in the future. That's what makes is ABSOLUTE.
Absolute truth is a truth concept whose validity falls under the domain of classical logic. We can EASILY prove there is no absolute truth as follows:
1) Absolute truth is a claim for an eternal, unchanging truth that is true for every possible circumstance. 2) Truth itself is a concept (of the mind/brain) that is applied to propositional statements that are verified to be true or false. 3) Truth can only be verified via a mind to determine true or false. 4) Truth is not an object, does not exist without a mind, and hence impossible to be eternal. 5) Anything "eternal" cannot be proven to be the case because eternity does not exist in order to deduce from. 6) Truth is bound within the domain of concepts, and hence impossible to be eternal. 7) Words like “eternal” and “absolute” have meanings that are boundless and not limited to any domain. Any attempt to apply truth to these words cannot be bound within a system of truth, and hence cannot be qualified as truth; only belief. 8) Truth can change when an event alters the state of affairs of a proposition (i.e. a blue car is painted red).
So, if absolute truth is outside the domain of validation, and there are no minds, and is impossible to be eternal, and it can indeed change, then what makes it absolute? Therefore, as per the above contradictions for absolute truth, there is no absolute truth. Absolute truth is IMPOSSIBLE.
But what is possible, is that somebody can BELIEVE that absolute truth exists somewhere in the deep caves of the universe. Sure, people are free to believe what they want. It only makes it true when they can prove it.
Absolute truth is the hallmark of church logic and religious fanatics who use it as a tool to drill their dangerous dogma into our brains. Dangerous stuff.
-I started a conversation with "tantrum" a while back on absolutes. He said that no absolutes exist. I said that I "think" I agree. If I would have agreed fully that no absolutes exist, it would have...
Because the thread which inspired me was dead...I have made the claim and am quite happy to engage in discussion with anyone who feels that they can and should disagree. As a mathematician with years of experience...
Please add you definition of what "absolute" means.If there was 1 absolute definition, wouldn't it contradict absolutes? Maybe only the unproven can be considered absolute? If it is proven, does proven =...
