Re: Information - Natural or Intelligence?

Seems we're hitting rock bottom here. Pretty soon, we'll be debating whether reality isn't all an illusion that only exists in our minds. Uh, but someone would have to have a mind that was real for THAT to happen. What was it Descartes said? y:-? Again; are you under the impression that numbers hav...

Numbers are actually just representative tokens we use when calculating the sum of things that DO exist! So even though 2+2=4, numbers themselves do not exist. :lol:
So if I write down the number Two, what do I have?
You have nothing, because numbers don't exist.




Apparently.

Re: Guy throws 5yr old off Mall balcony

Then why not throw the woman over and not a 5yr old boy?!
You know very well that a 5 year old boy cannot make sammiches!

Re: Information - Natural or Intelligence?

From post #82 Consider the possibilities concerning “X”&“Y”. There is empirical evidence and scientific proof concerning the existence of X, but no empirical evidence nor scientific proof concerning the existence of Y. 1. “X” was never created because it always existed. 2. “X” was created by “Y” My...

I have no idea why, but unless I'm being really conscious to it, I tend to refer to Heiser as "Heisler".

Re: Information - Natural or Intelligence?

You've obviously misunderstood me. That's not what I said. Go back and read what I wrote. Come on Kenny! You said that X equals cells, and Y equals God. And you said that there's scientific empirical evidence that X always existed. You might want to go back and read what you wrote. From post #82 Co...

Re: Information - Natural or Intelligence?

With "X" being cells, there is empirical evidence concerning the existence of Cells. But that's not what you said. You said there was empirical evidence that cells always existed.

Re: Information - Natural or Intelligence?

Just because If find #1 more practical than #2 does not mean I have proof that any of them are true. BTW had I found #2 more practical, would you had called it faulty logic unless I had evidence that God exists and created cells? It doesn't mean that you have proof that any of them are true? Didn't...

Re: Information - Natural or Intelligence?

I've never claimed cells aka biological life has always existed, so I am not required to show that it has. Isn't that what you were arguing here? Consider the possibilities concerning “X”&“Y”. There is empirical evidence and scientific proof concerning the existence of X, but no empirical evidence ...

Re: Information - Natural or Intelligence?

Okay; I think it is a bit of a semantics thing; but it still doesn’t change the point I was making back on post #82. It shows that your logic is faulty. Unless you have some kind of evidence that X, aka cells, aka biological life, has always existed. I've never claimed cells aka biological life has...
