a dedication to my friends who don’t like philosophers

you know who you are. I understand your frustrations sometimes, I really do and this is one of the times I really feel you my friends.

THIS PROPOSITION IS NOT TRUE.
IS IT TRUE OR NOT?
Suppose it true. Suppose it not true.
Then, Then,
The proposition is true; It is not true;
But, that it is not true is the proposition: [Ergo,] It is true that it is not true.
[Ergo,] That it is not true is true; But, the proposition is that it is not true.
[Ergo,] It is not true. [Ergo,] The proposition is true.
Besides, Besides,
It is true. The proposition is not true.
[Ergo,] It is true that it is true; But that it is not true is the proposition.
[Ergo,] It is not true that it is not true; [Ergo,] That it is not true, is not true;
But, the proposition is that it is not true, [Ergo,] That it is true, is true;
[Ergo,] The proposition is not true. [Ergo,] It is true.
[Ergo,] Whether it is true or not, it is both true and not.
[Ergo,] It is both true and not,
which is absurd.

Comment of the week

 

There is a discussion going on somewhere on this blog. Our interlocutor has made a comment that I think deserves special treatment.

Hell does exist. Jesus spoke about Hell quite often. Why don’t you want Hell to exist?
If there is no Hell, then what is the point of judgement day? What is the point of working out your salvation with fear and trembling? What is the point of good and wrong, if there is no hell?
You are saying that he’ll doesn’t exist, because you don’t want to go there. But by your closing your eyes from the sun, will it make the sun stop shining?
Hell existed to Jesus….because he spoke of hell many times. Not just words but stories. For every word and action, you shall give account.

Romeo believes there is a judgement day. Hell has to exist. No hell, judgement is in vain. I think this is brilliant.
