There is NOTHING that is knowable in certainty.

Are you sure?

Of course not.

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.


No, you believe 1+1=2 and if you limit the scope enough you can come up with an unlimited number of examples where it is true, but that does not make it absolutely true as I have pointed out to you in my previous "sophistical examples".

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.


No, I don't expect you to be baffled by that. It would be better off to be baffled by why does 1+1 = 2 when it does.


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

Because I don't want to commit heinous crimes. Why would you want to?
