I am really feeling like my thread has been hijacked by people who like to read their own writing:> conjecture. I have purposefully avoided quoting any one person--but you know who you are.|
Perhaps folks are afraid to read/respond to my real-world examples of facts, or did my propositions just get lost in the list mud?
Here again are some examples of facts, I would be delighted if someone would attempt to bound factual knowledge so that they could be quantified--or otherwise provide succinct reasons about why my examples are not facts.
Again, aside from bending the space-time continuum, or dismissing laws of nature like thermodynamics...I fail to see the need for relativism here...or, what am I missing? If you agree that these are facts, then let's get pragmatic and enumerate the properties/boundaries around the nature of a fact.
Also, I must express my displeasure with several members' netiquette on this list:
1) In addition to Mr. West, my name is also Matthew (this is a FACT)--please use unambiguous identifiers in responses
2) Spell Check is courteous--not a fact, but perhaps an opinion shared by many--one or two misspelled words words I can understand...but some of these posts are ridiculous.
