General Religious Discussion / Re: Why is God belief not innate?

okay, but I learned it from watching you!

learned what?
Well I inferred that absolute truth is justifiable from your proposal ( reply #6 ) that if absolute truth didn't exist the premise that absolute truth is false is itself false because it isn't absolutely true.
maybe the inference is faulty? that is all I was trying to determine.
maybe a false dichotomy?

I don't know. This merry-go-round is making me queasy :P

Following on from a post above, if I say "you don't exist" is the paradox sufficient to prove existence...

What paradox? :S

Does it matter if I know as long as the observed knows?

How can you know that they know if you can't even know that they exist?

Does it matter that I know that they know?

Of course. Otherwise, how can you know?

"Does it matter that I know that they know?"


 yes because then you would disappear and they would become you and you them.

Isn't that a paradox?

none, can you give an example of a truth that is valid in all contexts?
I haven't been able to think of an example that satisfies all contexts
Off the top of my head I come up with contexts that are impossible, ideal, relevant, irrelevant and I can't reconcile a truth that is cohesive across the spectrum...

well then ditch it.
