Quote# 13087

Is this a true or a false statement: Evolution is False? If you could prove Evolution to be ture, then the statement would be false. But science can not prove evolution or anything else to be true. So, if your choice is true or false, then the statement "Evolution is False" would become a true statement.

[Someone comments about how idiotic that statement is above]

Of course what you call "formal logic" we call deception. So don't be so convinced that your "logic" reflects the truth.

When the wall that surronds your mind is one of ignorance with no gates, then your kingdom is a rotted mockery of intelligence.

Oh, and there's the tipping point as even his syntax implodes in on itself.

Tomorrow, nothing but drool!

This is totally back asswards. You can't prove a NEGATIVE. Strictly speaking, you can't conclusively prove a positive either, but you can collect tons of evidence and be pretty damn sure. You assume negative until positive evidence arises. If all your tests don't provide any positive evidence, you continue to assume negative. But hey, that never bothered Bush when it came to WMDs, so obviously it's not important.

It'd be hilarious if it was true, but this guy seems to have a dim inkling of the above, and thinks that if you force a negative term into a statement, it automatically makes the statement unprovable or something. That's not QUITE the same thing!

JohnR7's slogan should be \"stupid is good'.

That IS his slogan... he just doesn't know it.

Well, JohnR7, if you lived in my country, you wouldn't pass high school without 35h of logic classes.

Alas, I doubt you'd finish a high school at all.

Is this a true or a false statement: God is False? If you could prove God to be ture, then the statement would be false. But science can not prove God or anything else to be true. So, if your choice is true or false, then the statement \"God is False\" would become a true statement.

OMG I m teh good with the words 2!

\"Is this a true or a false statement: Religion if false? If you could prove Religion to be true then the statement would be false. But, the church can't prove religion or anything else to be true. So, if your choice is true of false, then the statement; \"Religion is false,\" would be a true statement.\"

It works both ways dipshit, but I can guess your response already: \"The church proves religion to be true because the Bible says it's the word of god and it's absolutely impossible that someone would've lied about that.\" Logic is a funny little concept that is always out of your reach, isn't it?

Incubusion summed it up brilliantly.

Certainty is comforting, isn't it, John. Certainty is one of the chief allures of religion. The problem is that placing absolute trust in the twaddle of ancient fishermen and goat herders is patently stupid.


Redefining \"logic\" only makes your assertions more ridiculous.

\"Of course what you call \"formal logic\" we call deception.\"

Of course what we call \"hopelessly ignorant\" you call \"JohnR7.\"

Of course what you call \"formal logic\" we call deception. So don't be so convinced that your \"logic\" reflects the truth.\"
So, what you're saying is, our logic brings forth the truth? Finally, John! That's what we've been trying to tell you!

JohnR7 has the IQ of a house plant.
Could someone water him, please?

Yeah, the post reminds me of the \"logic\" Captain Kirk used all to make the evil computers overload their circuits and self-destruct.

Nope, science never proved that space is inhospitable. John! Prove them damn scientists wrong! Go out into space without protection.

Big bad John, at it again I see. Not dizzy yet from the circular logic?

Here, let me translate what JohnR7 is saying:

\"Blah blah blah blah blah, blah blah blah blah God.\"

There. Hope that clears things up.

Looks like JohnR7 has finally run out of ideas.

I move that we induct JohnR7 into the Fundamentalist Idiot Hall of Fame.
