Modal logic refers to what is possible in other universes. You were the one who brought it up first, not me.


True and irrelevant to my points.

Not exactly ie Modal Logic.  But you don't have to take up my original suggestion, in that context.  We aren't a slave web site, yet.

After you explain Modal Logic to me (I am having trouble there) .. maybe we can talk about this.  Simple predicate logic won't help ...

All Athenians are aardvarks
Socrates is an Athenian
Therefore ... Socrates is an aardvark.

Perfect logic, but bad first premise, because it violates empirical reality.

Forgive me for this...

How do you know he wasn't an aardvark?  Were you there?

Good point.  If anyone claims to know anything, you know it is BS.  Then the correctness of the syllogism doesn't matter.

No, that's the opposite of my point.  There is evidence to "know" some things.  Science depends on evidence, faith does not.

To know something scientifically, is conditional to the theory being used, and the skillfulness of instrumental use.  In common parlance, "to know" means many things ... even "to know a woman".

Because I seem to know you well, I have "trust" that you are telling the truth, when you describe your government service.  In that case I have "faith" in you (that you are trustworthy).

This day of Kavanaugh is a bad one to use "know".  In any sense...  Lets give those puns a sad rest...

Only men misbehave?  I was thinking of Adam and Eve actually.  Eve started it first!

I was referring to "know" a woman as a euphemism.  Will you drop this?

No actually.  The computer is giving me fits failing to send comments to blogs I try to visit.  8 of 10 comments I tried to post failed to get through.  I am a more than a BIT annoyed.

Life is a joke.  Beyond life is ... death.  Want to be dead already?
