    Back/spine troubles.

    I've recently been experiencing some pain in my lower back, likely lifting-related. I'm not sure exactly what it is or what's causing it, but I figured NutMisc is as good a place as any to start.

    That was based on external nutritional information for 40 oz. of smoked beef brisket, along with four slices of thick bread. Unfortunately, getting a more accurate estimate from the Corned Beef House...

    That's awesome. You should let me know when you hit up Corned Beef House; I'll try and make it out to support you and eat one as well.

    In total, the sandwich comes out to approximately the...

    That wasn't a post-modern or relativistic assertion. I'm not saying that there is no such thing as truth, nor that truth is relative to the individual. However, in order to assert that truth exists,...

  • So apparently this is what happens if you watch the right amount of DBZ

    Misc didn't enjoy it. Should've known better than to expect them to have tastes this refined. If you're a DBZ fan, I honestly think it's worth the read.

    Theories of knowledge and of truth are contingent, yes. If you don't like that, boo-hoo. If, instead, you don't understand it (as seems to be the problem) go take a course in both epistemology and...

    I already did this for you.

    A proposition is true if and only if it corresponds to the facts.
    A belief is knowledge if and only if it is true and it is justified.

    No god necessary. As a...

    Realistically, there's no point in purging. Unless you're going to be drinking olive oil or eating tubs of peanut butter, you're unlikely to be taking in more than 8000 kcals, and that can easily be...

    People die under mysterious circumstances all the time.

    It's not hand-waving. I wasn't asserting idealism, I was asserting realism, and I don't have to prove it because it's the null hypothesis.



    Given the sense of the word "standard" that you seem...
  • What you're asking for here, essentially, is for...

    What you're asking for here, essentially, is for me to disprove idealism. Thankfully, I don't have to do that. If you want to make that argument, then the burden is on you to disprove the null...

    No, it's not. Things exist regardless of whether or not any conscious being believes them to.



    No, it doesn't. You're essentially just arguing for some convoluted form of Platonism, and it's...
  • Not at all. What you don't seem to understand is...

    Not at all. What you don't seem to understand is that truth is a human construct to begin with. Truth is merely the name we give to propositions which accord with the facts. You do not need to posit...
  • I don't know what you're referencing when you say...

    I don't know what you're referencing when you say "false and false." Because I essentially made two claims: that I could suggest an absolute truth according to correspondence and that the two...

    I could, but let's not kid ourselves by pretending it would advance the argument. It doesn't matter which truth I suggest, you will simply raise one of two objections: either that it is not absolute...

    You're confusing validity for reliability. Arguments have validity; methods have reliability. Human reasoning is a method, not an argument.

    Furthermore, whether or not human reasoning is reliable...

    I also already addressed this. Human reasoning is not an argument. It doesn't make sense to ask whether or not it is valid.

    I already dealt with this objection. You can get absolute metaphysical truths by corresponding propositions to facts about our metaphysical framework in the same way that you can get typical truths...
