Upon taking the Introductory philosophy course at Delta college I found myself questioning the motives of today's teachings. The class was based
around statements, premises, fallacy, ergo, therefore, hence, since, as a result of, inferences, deduction, induction etc.
Here are some mathematical inconsistencies that I have derived.
Legend: T=True, F=False, ?=Valid, Invalid=Invalid
Now here the mind is led to believe that somehow a false premises and a true conclusion = validity. Of course two things that ARE false ARE truly
false, but why practice such a technique of recognizing truth within fallacy? Fallacy CAN be corrected, but one can never find truth within it,
because it is NOT truth. When something is false, it is false. It is okay to use tautologies, they are accurate. This is utter silliness. Here is what
it is saying mathematically, we must assert that we already know the conclusion (let's state that the TRUE conclusion is 2. The TRUE presmises will
be represented within the problem as 1+1[so that the true conclusion of 2 can be reached through the true premises], the conclusion will be
represented in the equality, False will be represented as Zero) in order to accurately show this in mathematic terminological variables. 1.) 2=1+1=2
YES, VALID... 2.)0=1+1=0 INVALID(because 1+1 is a true premises and it is obviously not equal to 0, a false conclusion, and 2 is the true
conclusion)... 3.)2=0+0=2... WHY CONSIDERED VALID? Do you see the way my mind works? Truth only. 4.)0=0+0=0 VALID?! Yes, it is truly false! Throw it
out! I can't deal with these philosophies, they spurt ignorance. ... no matter if we are talking "philosophically" or not. Yes, it is truly false,
but I ask you, can it be falsely true? It should be thrown out. I can't learn by these philosophies, they spurt unawareness. Even if one was to state
that number 4 is 0=0+0=0... "it's true!", Zero is nothing... and nothing does not exist in the first place. Truth is not found in nothing.
It felt as if I was attending politics 101. How can we do a good job at proving something to be true that isn't by setting up this sentence structure
and making it perceivably true?!
I've tried to convey to philosophers that the philosophy of philosophy is in finding truth and never in winning. Yet today it seems to have steered
itself toward the latter. Trying to prove something that is false to be true is not philosophy... it's politics, and look where politics have gotten
us. Ready for the World to end? World War 3? Nuclear Terror attacks? All we have to do is change... accept truth... be the truth... become the
truth... we are the truth... we are the lies... we are what this world is. And so the battle of good and evil rages behind the scenes... let us join
Mods can you please delete the post that resembles this one. I re-posted with a pinch of elucidation.
Man's flaw resides in false concepts. 0 is a false concept. Good for numerical math on paper... but when it comes to existence... it is
