And I have no way to check whether a slice can be greater than the whole other than by testing it
Romans 1:22 leaps to mind.
LH can’t seem to stop himself. He added Example 2,794 this morning:
I cannot therefore be logically, absolutely certain of anything—not even that A=A.
And then over At The Skeptical Zone we get 2,795 from “Colin” (LH goes by “Colin” there):
I am logically perfectly certain only that I can’t be logically certain about anything else.
I invite our readers to read the rest of the comments in that post at The Skeptical Zone, where all of the denizens of that site pile on and spout variations of “Oh, too true” and “Barry is so mean.” Except for our Mung, who points out the contradictions.
Why do they do it? Because truth and Truth stand as impediments to the assertion of the autonomous will of course.
Have you ever wondered why there is a near one-to-one correspondence between the people who say:
“I cannot be sure A=A.”
And the people who say:
“Who am I to say it is evil to kill little boys and girls, cut them into pieces, and sell the pieces like so much meat?”
The same people say both things, because the same spirit animates both assertions.
