    Can you ever get to a point of accepting that all thoughts have intrinsic beliefs?
    Thoughts are not individuals, they do not have the capacity to create imaginations in and of themselves.

    Try again.


    Can you ever get to that plane of understanding?
    Um, no, because it is false....and I am surprised that you demand this of me when you still cannot come up with a word that accurately describes construct without proof.



    There is your problem.
    No, it is not my problem. I don't have beliefs. I operate on knowns and unknowns.


    lol

    Yes, that's the nature of the idea of consciousness.
    Another wacky definition of yours.

    I'm mocking your superfluous question by giving a random answer.

    Thoughts are not individuals, they do not have the capacity to create imaginations in and of themselves.
    That's very deep.

    Try again.
    But that wasn't.

    Um, no, because it is false....and I am surprised that you demand this of me when you still cannot come up with a word that accurately describes construct without proof.
    You realize I never tried, right? I never even bothered to even attempt to. I'm not trying to answer your question; I haven't given it a passing moment's thought.

    No, it is not my problem. I don't have beliefs. I operate on knowns and unknowns.

    Sure.

    non sequitur to my statement you responded to aside; this is which is why nobody is falling for your attempt to muddy and blur the definitions of a word that has a wide variance in how it can be used, and why there have been numerous requests for clarification (which you refuse to do.)

    I take that as a "no, I cannot explain how what I am doing is not equivocation."

    Wrong.

    Stop. Everything in this discussion revolves around the word belief. Talking about the word "belief" isn't equivocation, no matter how much you wish it were. I understand you want that very badly. It's cool.

    I take that as a "no, I cannot explain how what I am doing is not equivocation."
    You were going to take it however you wanted to anyway. We call that a confirmation bias. Would you like a link to a blog talking about it?

    Um, no, it is absolutely necessary for you to choose a word that describes construct without proof to differentiate it from construct with proof .....if you wanted the conversation, the debate, to move forward....but you choose to be flippant. I know you don't want the conversation to go forward.



    That's very deep.
    No, not really, it was OBVIOUS.



    (try again) But that wasn't.
    English issues arise again.



    You realize I never tried, right? I never even bothered to even attempt to. I'm not trying to answer your question; I haven't given it a passing moment's thought.
    LOL...your "sympathy" was an attempt, a failed one, but one none the less. You did think when you gave it, unless your Mom responded.



    LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL

    Go for it, just keep it in context, if that is possible.



    Sure.
    Wow, an agreement.

    learn the definition of equivocation and get back to me, a good start is to actually read what I quoted and reply to the content of the words instead of another ad hom attack on the source.

    the use of ambiguous language to conceal the truth or to avoid committing oneself; prevarication.

    OMG...you have been using "belief" to mean constructs with...or without proof.....and you have the temerity to say it has not been used ambiguously?

    Good grief.

    Holy ****. If you typed that with a straightface, you're on a roll today. No one could be that obtuse without joking about it. Wow.

    On the other hand....maybe you really are that obtuse.

    Who doesn't know what equivocation means?

    Wow.

    Tell me more about how you guys don't have a belief on the subject. This is fascinating.
