How do we know that…
a decision of the past is true
my decision of the past is true?
my current decision is true?
my assumptions are true?
global assumptions are true?
what I hear is spoken?
what I see is there?
that the truth is true?June 11, 2014 10:39 pm at 10:39 pm #1019788

Another classic one is how do we know that other people think?June 11, 2014 10:59 pm at 10:59 pm #1019790gitsMember

We don’t know about true or false, I leave that to the programming.
Dim Assumptions as Global
if True=True Then
False=False And (What.I.Hear=Spoken) And (What.I.See=There) And Assumptions(True)

How do you you know you exist?June 12, 2014 11:58 pm at 11:58 pm #1019795
How do we know that we aren’t all figments? Figments exist, as they can be mentioned.June 13, 2014 4:23 am at 4:23 am #1019796thechoiceismineMember
Many things can be mentioned yet dont actually exist. What are you trying to say?
Anyway, we all KNOW we exist. We dont need proof. You can prove to me that I don’t exist, and I’ll still know I exist.
Inasmuch as I exist, Someone had to put me here. I KNOW that too (same kind of knowledge, but fortunately theres plenty of proof.). And Who should I trust more about the truth then Him?
So yes, we can know that the truth is the truth.

cogito ergo sum (I think therefor I am ) just that whoever needs Descartes to tell him that he exist is probably a bit touched. or frenchJune 15, 2014 10:49 am at 10:49 am #1019799notasheepMember
