So, this nutbag faggot lawyer, who made a career for himself out of forcing America to embrace fags and trannies against it's will, decided to go out like a drama queen by lighting himself on fire to protest air pollution.

I repeat, he set himself on fire to protest air pollution.

Well look at it from the other side: If Russia is indeed still socialist/communist instead of the creeping nationalist oligarchic filth that it appears to be, shouldn't YOUR ilk want nothing to do with it?

But then, this isn't about communism or socialism or capitalism; anyone in the workforce knows that the current state of U.S. capitalism is a fucked up joke, that the post-FDR marriage between socialism and capitalism is the best our country ever had it; what this is actually about is that the prevailing narrative is that Putin is OurGuy (despite the fact that Russia's population is 15% Muslim compared to Sweden's 6% or England's 5%) and that he helped the POTUS win the every-four-year-football-game. The mechanisms of corruption and how this sort of horseshit would've flown with the Founders doesn't matter to you anyway, because you don't identify with the citizens of the United States.

"Google it" is not an argument or evidence.

You do have to show it's fake if you claim it's fake, because telling someone else to prove it for you would allow you to call yourself right regardless. You could never be shown to be wrong because you can always claim the other person didn't look hard enough, and this is why shifting the burden of proof is a fallacy of argumentation.

That being the case, all Aufy has to do is say: "I did look, and I didn't find the evidence you claimed, so you're wrong and Antifa is real." - after all, if the burden of proof is on the opponent, then it's your burden to prove that he didn't look hard enough.

Other interesting factors is the number of population these countries had.

Both Russia and China had huge populations at the moment of the massacres.

Stupid and wrong. Britain's race-relations are-and-were a million miles ahead of the US's and the UK has never had any sort of guarantee or protection on free speech. Homosexuality was legalised UK-wide in 1982 (1964 for England and Wales) versus 2003 for the USA. (Lawrence v. Texas, prior to this it was illegal in 14 states.)

Well, technically you can, by corruption and other chicanery, but the question was about the constitution and whether a society explicitly needs free speech.

In a pluralistic society, free speech exists inherently because of the balance of terror. If someone is trying to suppress speech, the others will gang up against them.

In a society where one faction has managed to monopolize political power, you need to have free speech in law.

Those faces say it all.

Also, seconded. Britbongistan (and Cuckada) are fucked.
Freedom of speech is ESSENTIAL.
"Hate speech" is free speech, even if people hate it. In fact because people hate it, it is exactly what the amendment was for. Nobody cares about non-controversial speech. Doesn't matter if it's commie rhetoric or far-right stuff, you gotta let people speak and let the ideas compete against each other.
Also you can't have the first, third, fourth, fifth etc without the SECOND. This is where Europe went wrong. This is why our populations are so defenceless against government abuse. UK is also even stupider cause it doesn't actually have a proper constitution. Even Eastern European countries have proper constitutions that can't be changed without a citizen vote.

"There is freedom of speech, but I cannot guarantee freedom after speech."
-Idi Amin

"There ought to exist the fullest liberty of professing and discussing, as a matter of ethical conviction, any doctrine, however immoral it may be considered. The only purpose for which power can be rightfully exercised over any member of a civilized community, against his will, is to prevent harm to others."
-John Stuart Mill

Inciting violence or panic, lying to people, libel/slander etc. may be punishable offenses, but these can never be criminal offenses because of the freedom of speech, which means the state can't do shit to you for saying things, although someone might sue you for damages in a civil court.

Even hate speech falls under 1st amendment protection unless you're directly commanding people to break the law. That's because by outlawing certain opinions as "hate speech", the government would be granting itself unwarranted powers that would undermine democracy by enabling the state to define what opinions are permissible in general.

The only official definition of Fascism comes from Benito Mussolini, the founder of fascism, in which he outlines three principles of a fascist philosophy.

1.”Everything in the state”. The Government is supreme and the country is all-encompasing, and all within it must conform to the ruling body, often a dictator.

2.”Nothing outside the state”. The country must grow and the implied goal of any fascist nation is to rule the world, and have every human submit to the government.

Globalization, nuff said.

3.”Nothing against the state”. Any type of questioning the government is not to be tolerated. If you do not see things our way, you are wrong. If you do not agree with the government, you cannot be allowed to live and taint the minds of the rest of the good citizens.

Which is bullshit, more education = more intelligent country. They do not want intelligent people. They want idiots like you who still think that the ultrarich cares about you. HINT THEY DONT.

>using dead children to strip law-abiding people of their constitutional rights (its people control, not gun control)

WELL REGULATED MILITIA. There is a huge difference in "free for all" that righ wing gun nuttards keep insisting about constitutional rights and what reality is. WELL REGULATED means that it needs to be regulation. Something that you oppose. The left isnt using "the children". The right is the one OUTRIGHT IGNORING the MURDERS of innocent people. And their only most stupid solution is "give them more guns!".
The Teachers in a lot of states barely can survive with their salaries and they do not even have basic supplies and you idiots want to put training and weapons on them now?

>creation of the welfare state

And it will continue so as long the right leadership keeps getting paid (corruption) to keep giving free wellfare money transfers to the ultra rich while refusing to push for higher salaries to the workers to end said dependency.

>blocking traffic, inciting violence, bullying people JUST because they don't follow the left's ideals.

Go to FOXNEWS and see about inciting violence. That excuse is getting old. Leftists want rights, right nuttards want to kill those who demand rights.

>1.”Everything in the state”.

Then why the right wants to control gays, religion, women but they somehow still claim they want low government? They just want THEIR own way of goverment that keeps the plebeyans down and protect the oligarchs.

>2.”Nothing outside the state”.

Again same... Also globalization is a stupid dumb argument, because it was oligarches who pushed for this. Lowering taxes for transactions and worldwide spanning business to thrive. Who are the ones most benefit of this? the ultra rich.

>3.”Nothing against the state”.

Except when convenient? right? thats the republican way. "Do what I say not what I do".
Like your precious Hannity, who is a WELLFARE QUEEN. Blasting people who are poor and need money while he smooches wellfare rights to booster his multi million deals.
Also any questioning will not be tolerated? This is Trump's and the current GOP government like bis per bis. Blocking Mueller's, insulting everyone who is trying to get information on whats going on. Multiple accusations and smear campaigns. People already plead guilty and still claiming there is nothing going on which is a lie.

From: https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/10/311

10 U.S. Code §311 - Militia: composition and classes
(a) The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and,

 except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are,
or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States
and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard.

(b) The classes of the militia are?

 (1) the organized militia, which consists of the National Guard and the Naval Militia; and
(2) the unorganized militia, which consists of the members of the militia
who are not members of the National Guard or the Naval Militia.

It's pretty clear what it means.

lets not forget:

Lets break doown official numbers.

There are 312 million people in the US
There are 357 million guns in the US

there are, roughly, 32000 deaths a year in the US from fire arms

60% are suicides. That's 19,200
3% are accidental. That's 960
4% are justified. That's 1,280
33% are homicides. That's 10,560
80% of those homicides are gang related
That's 8,448

That's 1,712 in a society of 312 million people

That leaves a 0.010256410256% chance of death by a gun.

a 0.008564% if you don't hang out in the hood, not planning a crime, and not planning on committing suicide.

The USA does not have a gun problem.

Source is the CDC and FBI statistics.

by the by, some other things that kill people in the US in a year?

Heart disease: 611,105

Cancer: 584,881

random-ass accidents, like slipping in a bathtub: 120,557

Stroke: 128,978

Diabeetus: 75,578

Flu and pneumonia: 56,979

Auto accidents: 33,804

GUNS: 1,712

So, getting randomly shot is LITERALLY one of the least likely ways to die in the United States of State-Uniting.

Your Big Mac value meal is MANY times more likely to kill you than a bullet.

Went and got the numbers, because numbers trump feelings.
49,651,900 enrolled as of 2012 per https://nces.ed.gov/
From 1999 to 2012 you have 151 school shooting deaths. (I went for biggest number, so I even included gang executions instead of simply sticking to indiscriminate murder. )
151/49,651,900= 0.00000304117 or 0.000304117% chance of being a victim during that timeframe.
99.9997% of students will be fine.

Since we all know you people hate trans people almost as much as you hate abortion and food stamps, we simply have no reason to believe you when you offer up an alternative to surgery or say surgery is not needed and you're upset that surgery is bad for trans people.

the united states was founded, and still is, a Constitutional Republic.

By definition, a Republic is a political unit governed by a charter, while a democracy is a government whose prevailing force is always that of the majority (mob rule).

Perhaps one of the difficulties in defining these two words - democracy and Republic - stems from the fact that many people consider them to be synonyms, which they aren't. they are no more alike than an apple and a banana, and yet they are often used interchangeably.

incidentally, a king/queen system (monarchy) is not inherently evil or even inferior to a Republic or even a democratic system.

The suicide rate in the post-op is 41%.

Tell me, can you imagine a common hospital performing cosmetic surgeries that has 59% survival rate?

The only difference is they don't die on the operating table, they die hanging themselves in the bathroom some time later.

But you fucking murderous psychopath will sacrifice as many of these people's lives as needed to have your political agenda pushed through. You have your head so deep up your liberal ass you will shout over anyone who actually wants to help these people, because your precious "gender is a construct" values are endangered.

What is the pre-op suicide rate?

Also, the elevated suicide figures only apply to MtF transgenders. FtM people don't have statistically significant increase in suicide rates. The suicide rates identified in the study also don't apply after 2003, which indicates a deeper underlying reason, like the quality of the operation or the particular drugs used. The hormone treatments do have side effects.

20 times lower, meaning around 2%. Damn high comparing to entire population, but that's still 98% survivors, not 59%.

> The suicide rates identified in the study also don't apply after 2003, which indicates a deeper underlying reason, like the quality of the operation or the particular drugs used.

IMO it indicates the great rise of SJW that are ready to destroy the career of anyone who undermines their bullshit. No scientist dares to present a new study, because the results would be either similar, or worse, and that would mean the end of career as any minor mistake that is inevitable in any scientific work would be elevated to a monstrous crime which turns the whole paper into evil transphobic propaganda.

Very few honest scientists dare to study these things nowadays thanks to fear of rabid SJW fanatics.

No.3504612

sparknotes copy: comparing post-transition suicide rates to the general population is stupid, compare them to pre-transition. not all transgender treatment is surgery, hormone replacement therapy, legal sex-change (outside some weird yank states iirc) on can take place without any surgical intervention. laika actually survived going to space and was responsible for the downfall of khrushchev.

pre-op transgender suicide rates are also through the roof.

>Tell me, can you imagine a common hospital performing cosmetic surgeries that has 59% survival rate?

If we're going to draw the timescale out 20 years, it's rather easy. Pick a cosmetic surgery favoured by flash-in-the-pan pop stars who're certain to take an overdose once they fade. Forget 59%, I'll give you 7.

Now onto a more interesting area for discussion

>https://www.lifesitenews.com

You could at least try to make it look like you didn't google this. I wouldn't push the point, except that www.literallywhonews.com actually do cite their source, which is https://www.wsj.com/articles/paul-mchugh-transgender-surgery-isnt-the-solution-1402615120 and which has the advantage of being paywalled meaning whoever you're arguing with can't actually read the case that's being made. Even with the churnalism of that famous intrepid reporter Dustin Siggins (Dustin!?) the argument made manages to trip over its own feet. I quote:

>In his op-ed, McHugh cited a 2011 study that followed "324 sex-reassigned persons" from 1973 to 2003 in Sweden. According to the study’s abstract, it found that "persons with transsexualism, after sex reassignment, have considerably higher risks for mortality, suicidal behaviour, and psychiatric morbidity than the general population."

So we're back to that old canard, the one thing people always cite when it comes to transsexuals. Oh, it's the Swedish study, it's even from Sweden where they're nice and tolerant and SWEDEN YES, and STILL they top themselves more.
More than who? The assumption we're intended to make (and which foolish people often state - as in this case) is that it's more than pre-transition transgender individuals but that's not what the Swedish study says at all. It says, to repeat: "higher risks...than the general population" which isn't that shocking at all. They are an abnormal case outside the general population. The Swedish study makes no comment whatsoever on suicide rates between pre- and post-transition transsexuals. Indeed, the Swedes would have a hell of a job doing so given that a transgender individual may never seek medical help, then top themselves, leaving no data available.
Since they're going to repeat themselves ("Most shockingly, their suicide mortality rose almost 20-fold above the comparable nontransgender population") I may as well reword my point and repeat it: Do you want to know a fun fact? Individuals who take a course of chemotherapy have a significantly higher mortality rate than the general population. Can you imagine why that is?
Then there's the next part, which I'll only touch on briefly

>Most of the surgically treated patients described themselves as 'satisfied' by the results, but their subsequent psycho-social adjustments were no better than those who didn't have the surgery

The implication we're invited to draw here (and which you invite us to draw) is that pre-op individuals shouldn't be given medical intervention at all, except for mental-health intervention, with no transition. But that's not what this data-point compares. It compares post-transition individuals who didn't have the surgery, but still had a dose of hormone treatment, living as their acquired gender, etc. The conflation of transitioning with surgery is common and spurious.

I'm not sure why I bothered with this post with hindsight. It won't convince anyone even though each point made is more about the use of data and evidence than in pursuit of an argument in itself. (i.e. one could accept everything I've just said, and still conclude against transition. it's acshually about the use of evidence in shitposting)

No.3504614

>>3504609

>20 times lower

That's the suicide rate of the general population (given the suicide rate is "20 fold" that of the nontransgender population), not of pre-transition transgender individuals. (Though interestingly, I can't find a figure as high as 2% for the US population at large. Perhaps by implication this casts doubt on the 41% figure?) Unless of course the two rates are the same, which would be suspect at best.

>Very few honest scientists dare to study these things nowadays thanks to fear of rabid SJW fanatics.

I googled for a non-paywalled reprint. The original is in Wall Street Journal, behind a paywall.

BTW, I wonder what correlation is there between transgender and schizophrenia. Because what SJWs try to make people believe is that somehow trans are entirely immune to it, a flat zero of schizophrenic transgender people worldwide.

And while schizophrenia frequently causes all sorts of weird delusions concerning one's sexuality it somehow never ever causes the patient to believe to be of wrong gender.

No, not claiming that people with mismatch of brain vs genitals don't exist. Just claiming there are two different conditions with very similar symptoms and people suffering one of them are permanently served treatment for the other, which only aggravates the effects.

And ever implying a different treatment may be preferable is met with a pitchfork mob.

I've thought about abortion alot more often only because generally white knighting yourself through the public is so tediously obnoxious. It is obnoxious to have to work under some sort of stupid mind boggling policy that enforces you to be a sort of dick to everyone. I am talking about retail. That stuff is so over the line stupid. I dunno how to explain my hate for retail, I love being able to shop and get what I need, but then I have to be so fucking patient everytime some dumb nigger wants his love song on the p.a. speaker when hey man, 80s aren't really dead, you just make it want to be. Okay I digress this is shit beyond compare why I think about it sometimes. It goes well enough I get out long enough to get resettled...then it strikes me. The fucking underbelly of retail comes through like a freaking red haze through every window of my house, just seething its jealous tendrils through every crack and cranny I can possibly have to overlook, then the satan that it is spawns what I can only describe as little hate seeds that open up to the most primal shit possible, mostly malicious commenting, it just kicks off so vivid. There's nothing that can stop it, and putting up a fight, garunteed you get a solid spoon of silver satan spittle rammed in your mouth for having an opinion, washed down with a fuck-loogie from everyone on your fucking street. Well surprise that is just what rapists need to validate their constitutional rights to rape verbally, and eventually to a physical level expressed only in the back rooms from where most of your favorite wal-mart price saver products are made. They are made out of hate, hate for you, and your country, your kids, your family, your friends, the things you like, the things that like you, and the rest of what's in the chum bucket you call a nation. Oh well, I am just letting that one sit on the board for all of 2018, but there's a solution that is just HEAVEN compared to sitting there in that shit lifestyle, and it's one where abortion are possible.

I feel silly for taking so long to realize what is off about this graphic.

There is no such thing as a "Gnostic atheist" or a "Gnostic theist". Why? Because when someone says "I know god exists," they're using expressive language to convey a belief, not knowledge. Knowledge plays zero role in any claim made about god, because there is zero knowledge regarding god. God cannot be observed, proved, verified, or even reasoned about in any way; he can only be imagined.

Additionally, there are people who are careful to base their beliefs exclusively on this lack of knowledge. To these people, god has exactly 50/50 odds of existing, entirely because there is zero evidence to suggest either possibility is more likely than the other. To deny these people a label is to bully them - which, of course, is what this board is all about anyway. So come continue doing your insincere trolly things.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gnosis
The Lord gives wisdom [ħokhma] (sophia), from his face come knowledge [da'ath] (gnosis) and understanding [tevuna] (sunesis)"
— Proverbs 2.6

Gnostic theists claim that God is knowable through God by revealation. Likewise, gnostic atheists claim that nature can be observed and explained rationally to such a degree that God has no place in it - i.e. that God is an oxymoron at best and therefore cannot exist.

>To these people, god has exactly 50/50 odds of existing, entirely because there is zero evidence to suggest either possibility is more likely than the other.

That's a logical fallacy, because assuming 50/50 odds requires that something is known or assumed about God. Like, a coin has two faces, so an ideal coinflip has 50/50 odds. Does God have two faces? Indeed, you can't assume any odds, or make any sort of Pascal's wager while claiming to know nothing about God.

>To deny these people a label is to bully them

Well, if you so wish, we can give them a label: idiot.

Assuming 50/50 odds for God on the basis that absolutely no evidence exists affords the same for any other entity we care to name but not define, so there should be equal odds for Ogd, Gdo, Ugh, Duh, Huf... etc. etc. because why would God be a special case? We can invent any number of others, and ask the same question.

So, if you take the aggregate of these odds of these various somethings, each of them being exactly equally likely to exist than not, then the probability of "God" existing tends to zero.

So the person who makes the claim of 50/50 odds on basis of no knowledge about God has to make claim of the knowledge that there's no other possibilities, and therefore is in contradiction with themselves.

A claim, an argument, an explanation. A person agrees or disagrees with these - they're all subjective. There's no way to verify any of these concretely.

>That's a logical fallacy, because assuming 50/50 odds requires that something is known or assumed about God.

People who know nothing about god take guesses about how likely god exists all the time, without issue.

>Assuming 50/50 odds for God on the basis that absolutely no evidence exists affords the same for any other entity we care to name but not define

Knowing nothing about something doesn't preclude consideration of any given definition of it. But let's say we're talking about a god where no assumptions are made:

>if you take the aggregate of these odds of these various somethings, each of them being exactly equally likely to exist than not, then the probability of "God" existing tends to zero.

When you ask, "Will all 3 coins land on heads?" You get odds lower than 50%. But when you ask, "Does God, Ogd, and Ugh exist?" You can't make the assumption that they're not the same thing, because you'd be giving them a definition.

And they'd be completely unfounded in doing so. Anyone can say anything, but what they say doesn't necessarily have any meaning.

>Knowing nothing about something doesn't preclude consideration of any given definition of it.

Yes it does, because you're outright admitting you don't know what it is: something which is totally unkown hasn't got any definition to consider. Suppose, if I ask "Does X exist?", you may choose to substitute anything for X but that would be begging the question - I didn't say what X is, and the question is unanswerable. It actually isn't even a question, and trying to answer it is falling into error.

>But when you ask, "Does God, Ogd, and Ugh exist?" You can't make the assumption that they're not the same thing, because you'd be giving them a definition.

That error comes from assuming that "God" has 50/50 odds, which already includes the assumption that "God" is somehow special and distinct from these other labels. In reality you can't assume that they're different OR that they are the same. You can't make any assumption because no definition was given.

No.3504919

>>3504915
The main issue here is that labels which are undefined are blank. This is known as the fallacy of naming - thinking that a word automatically has meaning.

Any question in the form of "Does X exist?" is only a question if X can be replaced with what we mean by X. A question "Does a car exist?" can be parsed by substituting "a car" with some definition of a car, turning the question into: "Does a four wheeled vehicle exist?" - and the question can be answered.

The question "Does God exist?" parses into "Does exist?" because the label "God" is without definition and therefore empty. This phrase "Does exist?" isn't even valid language, and therefore doesn't mean anything. It isn't a question but simpy nonsense.

That is why the question of God is meaningless, and giving it odds to be true or false is silly.

As far as I can tell, this is what you're trying to convince me is ever an erroneous answer? Because that's obviously extremely silly. Everything else I write beyond this is secondary to this silliness.

If X is unknown to him and/or the word X doesn't mean anything, the person still doesn't know if X exists. He'd need to ask for more info, and if he doesn't get any, nothing has changed. He still doesn't know if X exists.

>That error comes from assuming that "God" has 50/50 odds

No assumption is made. In fact that's exactly why the odds are 50/50. Anything else would rely on an assumption. Imagine someone responding to any question with, "Maybe, I have no idea." This maybe is 50/50.

Of course this is different from the 50/50 you'd see with a coin flip. Same odds, but different underlying reason. You can assert that a coin flip is 50/50 through testing, and make predictions based off of it.

You're still hung on to the label as if it means anything. The person doesn't know X - period. The label X is precisely empty, void, refers to nothing, so talking about existence is entirely pointless.

Linguists do, but that's besides the point. You're simply exposing the naming fallacy: people think that because a name exists, it must refer to something. That is why people take the question seriously, and are lead into a logical trap; an error of thinking.

The question of God, or trying to answer it, is an error in thinking.

No.3504929

> You can assert that a coin flip is 50/50 through testing, and make predictions based off of it.

Actually, a real coin is never 50/50. You assert that a coin has 50/50 odds by defining a coin as a two-faced object which has no intrinsic bias as to which side it prefers to fall on. The odds are a result of the abstract idea of the a coin, which has a correspondence in real coins.

The odds of God would be the result of the idea of God which however has no contents because no correspondence to a real God exists since nobody can point to one in the lack of knowledge of what it should be.

The abstract arises out of the concrete, or as some philosophers would put it: existence precedes essence. All words that have meaning ultimately point to something - they can be broken down in a way, however difficult it might be, to the point where a person can in some way point a finger and say "that is what I mean".

When you deconstruct your own thoughts in this way, you'll find that many things we simply assume aren't actually meaningful at all, or the meaning is found to be surprisingly different than what we assumed and we find out that we were drawing entirely the wrong results out of it.

I would most likely say, "What do you mean?". I really can't answer the question without further information - but if I'm lazy I'll just say what they want to hear to get them off my case. Notice however that I'm simply responding to nonsense with nonsense there - a placebo answer.

>You are smart enough to surmise about what they likely mean by the word "God,"

I could take a guess, but that would be just me stealing the question and inserting my own by assuming what they assume with "God" without actually asking them. Such conversations are always pointless, because I can always disagree by inserting a version of God that is disagreeable, and they can do the opposite, because at no point do we actually come to any agreement of what we're even talking about!

>"Must" is much much much different than "Might".

That's a trivial point. In the case of God, people usually do assume that it must mean something - and so they fall in the trap and get entangled in endless arguments of total nonsense.

I mean, let's take a more concrete example:

Me: Let me ask you, "Is Toyota a good car?"
You: Which Toyota?
Me: Toyota. You know, Toyota.
You: You mean like, a Lexus? Or a Corolla? Camry? What do you mean by "Toyota"?
Me: Toyota! You know perfectly well what car it is!
You: how can I answer that?
Me: You just have to say "yes" or "no". Or at least give it a 50/50 if you don't know.

See how silly the conversation gets when you use a label which has no meaning in the context? "Toyota" is a car manufacturer, so the question "Is Toyota a good car?" parses down to gibberish. If then we were to assume that by "Toyota" they meant a 2005 Toyota Camry, we could answer our own question, but not necessarily theirs, and then the "yes-no-yes-no" argument would start where one imagines the conversation is about the Camry while the other is actually assuming a 1971 Corolla but refusing to tell you that.

This sort of error is perfectly easy to spot and you would quickly tell the other person to stop fucking around, but somehow when we ask the same kind of question about God, people's logic goes hang.

No.3504969

Though in this case you could answer "No" regardless, and you'd be absolutely correct, because a car manufacturer isn't a car - the question isn't entirely without a meaning if you take it literally. What isn't a car is by definition not a good car exactly because it isn't a car. Doing so, you would answer the question, but did you truly answer their question?

I feel silly for not thinking of this until now. Of -course- word X (or "god") has a definition, because it only needs to have one in somebody's mind.

The reason it means something to them is irrelevant. Whether it means something to you is irrelevant. The accuracy or truth of X's definition or any claims made about X are irrelevant. Whether it's the same as anyone else's definition of X is irrelevant. Even if someone else doesn't tell you what it means to them, and you try to argue with them about it carrying a different understanding of the word - that is irrelevant. And avoidable.

If the word "god" (and any word similar to it) was absent from our lexicon, its many concepts would still remain, and we'd express them through a series of words rather than a single one. The word itself is just a shortcut, and gives us a broader starting point.

>You're still just exposing the nominal fallacy

I read about it a bit, and the fallacy appears to require two elements: A fact (or claim?), and a word to explain that fact. So in this case, it would look like, "The world exists because god. How do we know it's god? Because the world exists." That's a nominal fallacy, right?

I'm reading back on your previous posts, and I can't tell exactly what fact/claim is being falsely explained with the word, and what consequences a nominal fallacy would ever have for the words used in one. What nominal fallacy are you seeing, exactly? It seems like word X all by its lonesome is supposed to be a nominal fallacy?

That's the issue. People think they do, but when you ask them to define God, they fail because the definition they try to give is contradictory or oxymoronic, or they run into a definition loop where they try to define God by using other words which lack definition.

The reason why we need to define the words we use to define God is because the definition allows us to identify God. We need something to point at and say "that". If we don't know what we mean by "create" when we say "God created the world", then we still don't have a definition of God. A painter creates by taking paint and putting it on a canvas, but how does God create? What could you point at and say "that's what God does"?

If you could, then you would automatically have found God, because a full definition of God - a unique description of how to identify God - would require you to point a finger at God. If you say we can know God, that we have a definition, then it's your burden of proof to show that one exists, and the question of God is no longer about faith but evidence.

It is exactly because of this that religions started "defining" God as unknowable to avoid having to prove it, which isn't a definition at all but simply admitting that you don't have a clue.

>I read about it a bit, and the fallacy appears to require two elements: A fact (or claim?), and a word to explain that fact.

Here the fallacy applies to the validity of the question. Before you start asking "Does God exist?" you must ask yourself whether this question is valid, and there people make the error of thinking that because a word exist it must have a definition, that because the word "God" exists the question must be valid. The claim is that the question is valid, and the fallacy is saying "Yes, because the word God exists."

In the case of X nobody (sane/intelligent) would ask the question before having at least some sort of idea what they're talking about because it wouldn't make sense to ask "Does X exist?" without defining X.

Why does somebody need to know how a universe/painting is created in order to claim that somebody created one? That's beyond ridiculous. The definition of the word 'create' does not require that knowledge - even in dictionaries. Only the result, not the process: "to bring into existence"

>a full definition of God - a unique description of how to identify God - would require you to point a finger at God. If you say we can know God, that we have a definition, then it's your burden of proof to show that one exists, and the question of God is no longer about faith but evidence.

But a "full definition" (or a "factual definition" as I'm interpreting it) is separate from a "valid definition." As it is, the definition differs from person to person because we're working with zero data. Many definitions. If aliens suddenly flew in from outer space one day, people would argue about whether they're gods.

That said, it's pretty easy to imagine what a god would be that the great majority of people would agree on - even if it wasn't their original concept of god. This is helpful, but even still completely irrelevant.

It seems to me, as far as I can think right now, that any given definition of god is valid if there's a possibility that it's true. If you draw a sketch and say that "god looks like this," nobody can tell you that definition is incorrect, because they don't know.

Exactly so that we could say somebody created it. If by "create" you actually mean "come into existence of itself" then what do you think happens to the definition of God?

>The definition of the word 'create' does not require that knowledge - even in dictionaries. Only the result, not the process: "to bring into existence"

It does. How do you define "to bring"? How does one bring the world into existence and how is this act unique to God? See now you're playing the definition loop where you're dodging the question of what we mean by God by giving it definitions which lack definition.

In the case of the painter, we can stop the never-ending spiral of definition by going to an actual painter and showing how a painting is created. This is what makes words mean something - it's what makes the phrase "A painter creates a painting." meaningful - it refers to something real, whereas God refers to exactly nothing, insofar as you're only trying to define God by words and not by directly pointing at one.

>As it is, the definition differs from person to person because we're working with zero data.

It actually doesn't. As long as nobody has any knowledge of God, then all these "personal definitions" are exactly empty, and therefore they are one and the same: not a definition.

>But a "full definition" (or a "factual definition" as I'm interpreting it) is separate from a "valid definition."

Yes. A valid definition of God would only use words in a way that they have correspondence in reality - but do you see the problem? If you point at things other than God, you haven't found God but these other things. A valid definition of God can still fail to identify God, whereas the valid AND full definition of God would amount to pointing at God itself.

>If you draw a sketch and say that "god looks like this," nobody can tell you that definition is incorrect, because they don't know.

But you do, because you just made it up. In order to honestly draw that sketch, you would have had to seen God, and since God is seeable, then God is showable and therefore nobody has to take your definition seriously until you show them God. Otherwise your definition by sketching is useless, because it doesn't allow anyone else to identify God and decide on the matter.

Any definition of God is valid if it has a correspondence in reality.

A caveman can point at a lightning bolt and say "God's arrow", thus defining God that which creates lightning - among other things which the caveman doesn't undestand. But, this is a valid definition of God - even though the phenomena they're pointing at will later turn out to be something different.

Yet we could still go by this "old" definition just fine, and say "God" = "Observable laws of nature" or something to that extent. That however is unsatisfactory to the religious person because it steals all the mysticism and the metaphysics out of God, so the religious person pushes God further and further back into the mist of ignorance until there's no place or phenomenon in reality where it can exist. Then the religious person says "Well, God is really unknowable".

And pop, the bubble bursts, God no longer has meaning. Therefore to ask whether one exists is folly.

No.3505245

Also notice: if you point your finger at the world around like the caveman and say "God's creation", i.e. defining God "that which created all this", that can be a valid definition, but it tells us nothing about God because that which created everything can be anything.

So you might end up with "God" = "The Big Bang", or "random quantum fluctuations of the vacuum zero point energy", or something like that. Calling it God is again the nominal fallacy because you're trying to explain something by giving it the name "God". This is the God the Prime Mover, the cause of causes, definition. That line of thinking explains neither the world, nor God, and it would be foolish to have a faith based on it.

As for the question itself, "Does God exist?" then boils down to "Is there an Original Cause?", to which you could point out that the question of original causes depends on the idea that everything has a cause, and so the notion is self-defeating because it doesn't stop at God.

And that's why the theists dropped the "prime mover" argument of God as well.

It's just tricky, because we don't know everything about what reality is. This is what leaves the realm of imagination open to consideration. It may have made our ancestors look silly, but we're still much in the same position they were in.
