    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

    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...

    The Internet is Biased

    This was not an accusation of appeal to authority or hiding. It was rhetorical in support of the point about you posting from within a bubble. So for you, the SJWs are dissenting, and the media you provided is affirming. Instead of addressing the SJWs directly, you have an affirming voice...

    The Internet is Biased

    How is a carefully curated SJW fail compilation not an example of your own internet bubble? Why do you need a voice you agree with to explain the positions of people you don't agree with for you? Don't get me wrong people definitely have bubbles. I'm deeply confused as to why you think...

    Why are ideas considered separate from matter?

    Can you show me the part of the empiricist position that requires being able to trace causality backward? Not saying you're wrong, it just doesn't seem to follow from the core tenets. I consider myself an empiricist but do not think causality can necessarily always be traced backward. Are...

    Social Justice is the basis of Racism and Sexism

    Social Justice is the basis of Racism and Sexism

    I'm not sure about the mechanism of enforcement or whether I think it should be enforced. There are optic pressures to have a diverse workforce, and this is a very gentle prescription, so in my mind, this is the very least people should do in their own self-interest (woke bucks are still bucks)...

    3 RULES OF CIVIL DEBATE

    See I would not have thought that was your position from the two words you used. I agree with promotion of non-violence, I am human, and I desire to live in peace. I also think violence is necessary and (somewhat) constant, and am still figuring out exactly where the line is for what I deem...

    Social Justice is the basis of Racism and Sexism

    Social Justice is the basis of Racism and Sexism

    If I am concerned with the distribution of wealth, opportunity, and privilege based on group identity (I am), how is this causing the inequity I'm seeking to reduce? I don't understand how you're arriving at a framework that attributes judgement to the social justice position. If I advocate...

    D&D game, feedback?

    Hey goblins are terrifying! Obviously, you're going to know your table better than me, so feel free to disregard.

    That sounds potentially very good, but I would be careful if this is their first session.

Batman with prep time. But...

    Can human compatibility/relationship be calculated and measured

    Right, seems like you guys think about this stuff in softer terms than I was attributing to you. I think we basically agree on most of this, but with different estimates and using different points of reference. I see people as reducing pairing to some sort of objective market where people...

    I'm going to come in Puffy and +1 Antare's point :) The way you post fails to distinguish itself from someone that is acting out a persona or sewing manipulative seeds (I remember having a similar style back when I first started playing mafia on a different site - got me wagoned hard).

    Antares He didn't say Cog needed to change his mind because of the authority of other people being smart. He said that he would stop and consider whether he was wrong if people who are smart disagree (and implied Cog should do the same). That's completely different, and something I would also...

    Can human compatibility/relationship be calculated and measured

    I was thinking more stuff like gender and age. Desert island thing feels a lot like "the last person on earth" scenario though I take your point. There are a lot of people I'd leave behind though. I don't disagree about commitment being a big deal and that a lot of the narratives surrounding...

    Can human compatibility/relationship be calculated and measured

Some people are super fucking annoying though? What about demographic stuff? Or is that outside of...

    Can human compatibility/relationship be calculated and measured

    The way you wrote that tied my eyes in knots x-x I'm not sure if we understand each other. For the first part, where I base it on mutual interest and commonalities, these are things that facilitate pairing but are not necessarily meaningful for compatibility. For the second part, this would...

    No that's not a better example, it's just a convenient one to you. A gay person does not choose to be gay, and there are substantial investments in changing where they live to avoid a church.

    Can human compatibility/relationship be calculated and measured

    Can you elaborate on what you mean by compatibility not existing? What does it look like to you? A pure hierarchy? Or do you mean compatibility calculators used by dating sites only? Then we're probably in the same ballpark. If I were to design a compatibility calculator, I would base it on...

    Toxic Femininity

    I don't really see the internal logic. Wizards are notorious for needing a frontline. In the script you're reversing, the same is true for women due to physical limitations and being baby factories. By combining the roles, you don't elevate women to being the frontline, you make it more...

    You always struck me as on the spectrum, but a lot of people here do. If you have a diagnosis then my confidence in that conclusion grows. However, keep in mind that people are clueless about autism, and a lot of the feedback you receive is going to be skewed by valence and ignorance. I know...

    The philosophers of the past era have failed our generation

    I find it odd to think of it as their failure. Is this core to how you perceive the march of thought through generations? Very alien to me. What do you mean by a "systematic understanding of reality and life". Does this have to come from philosophy? Aren't science, politics, and religion such...
