Gödel fans out their why do you like Gödel?


I as a fan like him for many reason some of with are, his ability to prove statement that are not only original to himself but contradictory to to common assumption of the mathematicians at his time, his contributions to the Hilbert program, that is, founding all of mathematics, and many more reasons.

Who here accepts:
1.) If their is an object Φ not being is good, then Φ being good is false.
2.) If an object Φ is good, then Φ is necessarily good.
3.) If an object Φ is good and all of its properties are that of another object ψ, then Ψ is good.
4.) If God exist, God is good.*
5.) Goodness necessarily exist.
*Note: God is defined as the being witch their exist nothing greater.

+Jonathan Wakeman 3 could be true, because of inheritance.. 4 is an assumption. And 5: goodness is man-made. If there were no humans on this earth, the concept of goodness had no meaning. The only reason it exists is because of there wasn't any "good" we probably weren't able to live with each other.

Is anyone else here a fan of phenomenology?

I've appraised my phenomenological contemplation of the variations, perceptions and nature of consciousness. I followed superior beings as they took me through the basic's of reality while under the influence of Mushrooms & LSD.

All I can say is the nature of consciousness is whatever you imagine it to be. There is no right or wrong, only opinion of being.

I will now describe to you what skepticism is. It is similar to skeptical. A skeptist would believe that you cannot know anything at all, and if it is a good he will say that we cannot know that we cannot know. I know this might be a bit confusing if you don't get just comment below and I will explain.

For those of you who don't know epistemology I will start with a belief that I hold dear, that is cartesian foundationism. First the root of this belief is the foundationism, that is the idea that their is a bases for all knowledge. Next, the cartesian modification, that is Cogito Ergo Sum, Latin for I think; therefor I am. Cogito Ergo Sum is the foundation of knowledge which Descartes discovered.

Morgenstern, the co founder of game theory, recorded a lot about Gödel and Einstein in his letters. In one of these letters he said that towards the en of Einstein's life he considered Gödel's work to be more important then his own. Bye the way Einstein and Gödel were good friends.

I got the audiobook of those letters a while ago - they are very interesting and insightful. Those were very different times - World War 2, the aftermath and how Gödel had to remotely deal with things like rent in Vienna ... you can get the audiobook on iTunes at https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/the-letters-of-dr.-kurt-godel/id449216650

Why is it that most the atheist I run in to feel it necessary to insult the theist?

I would only strongly disagree that "it's typically not the theist that's mocked".

Cogito ergo sum or cogito sum that is the question.

I don't know whether to laugh or to cry. No matter, Windows 8 appears to be reinvigorating the PC industry!
