Try and be less ridiculous.
I am not jumping through any of your hoops. Either you can explain your contradictions, or you can't. Evidently you can't.
There are no contradictions.
Don't worry about me. I have lots of steam left, and I also know a lot of things about reality... As I explained above.
Did I answer your question to your satisfaction now?
Quote:There are no contradictions.
Do you seriously think you can witter about "descriptions of reality" without the tacit acceptance of the belief system (contrary to current knowledge) that language functions according to the correspondence theory of truth ?
Ah..but such an assumption would need thinking about !
Remember me telling you years ago that you were like the ridiculous Black Knight in Monty Python and the Holy Grail ? What was left of him after losing his arms and legs, was left shouting in the dust "It's only a flesh wound !" Your ego ,which you project onto others of course, won't even go that far.
With reference to the OP, It is obvious to all that your belief system, that you are the only human in history who doesn't have one , has been well and truly destroyed !
Now...where's that bloody wooden stake and the holy water ?
Now that you're a "pompous bag of air," we should take come-uppance to frankie's claims. LOL
You asked what I knew of reality, and I answered to the best of my abilities. What seems to be the problem now?
I have already covered my response to your list of what you "know" about REALITY.

I did not provide a comprehensive list, as that'd be impossible, but you got an answer to your question, which is more than I can say for most of my questions to you.... You may not like the answer I provided, but who said you and I should necessarily agree on anything?
I have already explained what your contradictions are, several times even. And unlike you, I used plain English, not cryptic references... Anyway, here it is again: You say that you know nothing, and that you know a lot of things. What gives?
In terms of Archimedes and the flotation of "air-bags" it saddens me that Frank, a one time philosophy graduate, (so he says) descended to the level of barber shop banter many years ago, and got stuck there. I know many graduates of his age, eager for mental stimulation, who actively relish discussions of current developments and travel miles around the UK, chasing speakers, and reporting new material for debate.
I gave you my reasons for questioning why you assert you "know" the things you said you know...without the qualifications I applied to my assertions of "knowledge." Apply the qualifier...and I will agree with you.
