QuoteI am asking for proof. The sentence you have written is, "I have given you proof," which I cannot accept as proof. You neglect to reference this alleged "proof". You neglect to even hint at what this alleged "proof" may have been. I have no idea what you are talking about. If you have proof in support of Materialism then provide it please. I am begging you!
Quote from: SGOS on May 20, 2014, 04:47:00 AMWhy would a logical person even attempt to engage Casparov? You know the outcome. You will be flooded with word salad, gibberish, and ignorance. He is beyond understanding and operates outside the confines of reason. Nothing constructive will come of it.
Quote from: Solitary on May 20, 2014, 12:08:10 PMI like to educate people is why I do, but when it goes in one ear and out the other it is frustrating. I like the challenge, and it makes me put my thinking cap on so I don't get stupid. Besides it is funny listening to their use of Slick Maneuvers. Solitary
Quote from: Berati on May 20, 2014, 12:29:10 PMI agree and since this thread was started as my personal response to Casparov I was hoping to avoid others pilling onto his responses. Not that I mind input from others but I have my own plan and I would prefer not to get sidetracked.
Quote from: \"the_antithesis\"Faith says, "I believe this and I don\'t care what you say, I cannot possibly be wrong." Faith is an act of pride.

Quote from: Bibliofagus on May 20, 2014, 12:35:14 PMWhy don't you just request a one-on-one debate? (sorry, coundn't resist)Also: Casparovs line of reasoning basically comes down to solipsism. And in solipsism no thing needs a - known - cause. Everything goes. It's a total cop out and completely useless. I don't understand why people give this shit so much time. A one-on-one debate for an issue that can be settled in one sentence? Follow up threads on this shit? Really?
Quote from: DunkleSeele on May 20, 2014, 05:25:22 AM^^^This. Casparov has shown nothing else than intellectual dishonesty, in the same fashion as the other religious fundies we use to get here. The fact that he abandoned the debate he himself asked for speaks volumes about him. A waste of good oxygen.
Quote"The demarcation problem in the philosophy of science is about how to distinguish between science and nonscience, including between science, pseudoscience, other activities, and beliefs."

Quote from: Berati on May 20, 2014, 06:29:15 PMSure, why can't the debate happen right here?
Quote from: Berati on May 20, 2014, 06:29:15 PMAs to his line of reasoning... I agree with you and yet Casparov cannot see it himself...
Quote from: Berati on May 20, 2014, 06:29:15 PMand others (myself included) have still managed to get sidetracked into debates about scientific experiments which in the end have nothing to do with Casparovs beliefs.
