Re: Arguments for God

Isn't this all just a mental masturbation exercise? Even if this higher being exists, if I can't provably interact with it or use the assumption of its existence to predict the future then it is irrelevant. Even if such an entity exists, I argue it is the height of hubris to believe that said entit...

Re: Buy potatoes online

I prefer to grow sweet potatoes in a greenhouse, I bought everything I need for this, and this year I even equipped the lighting. I don't have a lot of light behind my house, there is not enough greenhouses. When I ordered King Plus 1200W phytolamps, it got better. Plants do not stretch too high - ...

Re: Truth, Ignorance and Faith

Human welfare has absolutely increased. Not to be rude, you are denying reality if you think otherwise. We can go back and talk about Malthus...and the belief that increasing population would lead to starvation. We were supposed to have starved long before now. We have avoided this fate through incr...

Re: Truth, Ignorance and Faith

I think my reason for linking them is that in the absence of proof (for example of the twin prime conjecture) you have to take it on faith. (Ok in mathematics, they might start with 'assume the twin primes conjectures; then...' and go on to prove other things. Which I guess isn't what most people w...

Re: Truth, Ignorance and Faith

The second video on "Ignorance" is interesting enough...but it was a bit all over the place. It was also perhaps a bit too ideological rather than sticking to specific philosophical concepts. I have some sympathy for some of the things mentioned...but in the end I wasn't really sure what to take out...

Re: Truth, Ignorance and Faith

There is an effort, that I have seen many times, to suggest that since maths (or science), can't answer everything...then I can disregard them when I feel like it. This is postmodernist nonsense.

Re: Truth, Ignorance and Faith

I am not really seeing the connection between the first video and the other two videos. While I do like Veritasium videos at times, he is presenting the topic in a bit of a click-baity way. The video is discussing the limitations of mathematical proofs. When he says "Truth =/= Provable" he really me...

Re: Meanwhile another Palestinian Genocide brought to you by Israeli Fascists

Where are you getting this "one outlet" from? There are signatories from lots of media outlets (e.g. McLean's, CBC, Burnaby Beacon, Toronto Star, 660NEWS and many more). The article itself mentions that one of the signatories had received reports from journalists at multiple publications about this ...
