    I did not :/.


    Also @ Dr. We're not talking about proofs here, but claims and the logic of exclusivity.

    I think you missed the point and are getting hung up on the first sentence. Take out the first sentence "James has a blue pen." and replace it so it reads "James has a pen. He tells Jack it is blue..." and the entire analogy still holds.

    That's a nice cadre of passive-aggressive insults at me.

    Combining the claim of "gnostic" that was thrown at me a long time ago (bonus points for your librarian-esque referencing ability) due to a misunderstanding of an argument I made with saying that I will not admit fallibility (which has been disproven on this very site) and comparing an exclusive truth claim to smug certainty all wrapped up in one big burrito of being a jerk :/.

    It wasn't passive aggressive nor an insult. Just an observation.

    Perhaps playing the victim works when you attempt to debate other people, but it doesn't work here.

    I can't believe we're still arguing about this.

The sickness I was talking about was your propensity to kind of reach in and grasp on to something to define someone here. You harangue them about it and manipulate it in to conversations. You do that with every single poster here. You do this until they see things your way. The "correct way". It's vile.

    And logical claims of exclusivity need to be proved else they are not expressions of a logical argument they are just opinions.

    Didnt you once claim that you had studied formal logic?

    You make a statement, the statement is checked for validity, this process is known as constructing a proof.

    That is pretty much the basic operation of logical analysis.

    No, it doesn't
    Because assertion of a physical, tangible property is able to be quantified.
    A belief system cannot.

    I'm pretty sure resolve has made a similar claim in the past.
