There is NOTHING that is knowable in certainty.

Are you sure?

Can you tell me anything that you know with absolutely no doubt?

I know that 1+1 = 2. Your sophistical examples are completely irrelevant. You may claim that you have doubts, but frankly I think you are just engaging in a debating ploy. You never ever have and never ever will actually act as if it were not true.

I mean, am I really supposed to be baffled and frustrated by your silly assertion that
1 sperm + 1 egg = 1 human or nothing? I can give you a whole lot more sophisticated paradoxes if you like.


A moral question. If you believe Life is Meaningless is there anything preventing you from committing heinous crimes?
