    Burden of Proof question.

    BoP in philosophy is more about arguing over who has it as a way of resolving conflicting positions. For example, if you make an extraordinary claim you require extraordinary evidence. This is a neat way of defaulting to a gentle dismissal of spooky conclusions until there's reason to believe...

    Burden of Proof question.

    @scorpiomover It's not just a legal term, it's a philosophical one. I agree the virus doesn't care though. I loosely agree with Cog regarding appeals to authority. It is a fallacy in the formal logic sense - it does not constitute a valid deductive argument form. But most of the time people...

    Looking for interesting sports.

    I share your perspective on sportmanship and acceptable strategy. Play to win within the agreed upon rules, and if it's not ruled against then it's legit. Sometimes this breaks the game and makes it unfun or possibly dangerous, this means there's a flaw in the ruleset, not the player.

    HOW TO SHATTER HUME'S GUILLOTINE

    I can claim it because it's not my baseline. You just won't believe me because you have a very specific personal definition. I don't really think in terms of hume's guillotine, I think it's something to invoke when someone is making a formal philosophical claim but most invocations include some...

    HOW TO SHATTER HUME'S GUILLOTINE

    Did I miss where the video mentioned sigma? We agree that science is less reliable than it should be. Where we disagree is that I think changing the alpha value is only a small part of the solution. These are real results all achieved through p hacking. Shifting the alpha results in...

    HOW TO SHATTER HUME'S GUILLOTINE

    @LOGICZOMBIE These videos are fine, but they do not answer the question. Why is four sigma a relevant confidence threshold? This is the third time I'm asking, and you have already responded three times with a rhetorical question and three separate scientific literacy videos. But none of them...

    HOW TO SHATTER HUME'S GUILLOTINE

    Reliable in the scientific sense? No? But a more reliable measure will reduce variance resulting in greater confidence. In the lay sense? Yes but that's a very specific framing. Of course reliable information is better. Nobody disputes that. But by that reasoning two sigma is fine because it's...

    HOW TO SHATTER HUME'S GUILLOTINE

    Did the four sigma rule get substantiated to the fourth sigma in a lab? Is this framework not just your baseline, your preference, your opinion? Physicists use five sigma, some want six. Psychologists use two (much to my dismay). Personally if I get three I'm really happy (but p=<.01 is what I...

    The Internet is Biased

    I'm asking you whether this is something you've experienced because if you haven't experienced it then it seems like it's only an issue because your internet bubble is telling you it is. I said that the video you linked conflates fringe elements for the core of progressive politics, and...

    The Internet is Biased

    Is this something that has happened to you? What was their gender identity and what did you want to say that you weren't allowed to? Were you criticised for not finding someone trans attractive? Your sexuality is valid. Are the SJW positions sophistic or just the wokescolding stuff? How do...

    The Internet is Biased

    If you want to talk about social justice, I think you need to be explicit about your terms. I think it'd be more productive to talk about specific issues than gesturing vaguely at the bad tribe. We probably agree on a lot of stuff, but because this is framed in tribes we're pushed to talking...
