Would it be possible to discuss metaphysical value with respect to mathematical proofs? I think that might be quite interesting.

The difference between me and you


Oh look, the difference between me and you!

is that when it comes to serious debate you need laugh emoticons to sustain your view to uphold your identity.


...whereas you just refuse to debate. Why won't you answer questions?

I need fuck all. I stand here,


...in nothing but your underpants?

utterly alone,


Oh, sorry.

a theist hated by all other theists and atheists.


Quick, someone pipe Land of Hope and Glory in here. Hated, yeah sure. I can pretty much guarantee that you don't engender strong emotion like that from people on the internet, if those people even do hate which, by the way, I do not.

I no longer need anybody on the Earth to define me, nor (therefore) to sustain me.

I'm here to shove a frozen badger fire up...


Whatever that means. Why won't you answer questions?
It's odd, but whenever I read your posts to me all I read is piss-takes and sarcasm, not least judgements such as me being a funny small man. If there's a serious question thrown in there from time to time, then please forgive me for missing it. Or, at least, please forgive me for not giving a fuck about responding to it.

Don't demand anything from me until you treat me as your equal or better. If you don't want to do that, then don't fucking bother me at all.


Why won't you answer questions?

I don't desire anything, I demand it. If you do not comply, I'll simply treat you with the same contempt you dish out to me.

I won't be bullied. How much proof do you need of this? Another two decades, perhaps?


Please, no.

Yes, it would be nice if that were to actually happen.

Since our Lord and Savior's gone on vacation, anyone else want to attempt a definition of metaphysical value and why mathematics should care to have any?

Oh that's a shame. What did he do now and will he gone for longer than the Easter weekend?

I'm not sure how I'll get by without knowing about metaphysical value in the meantime.

Not sure, I don't see a mod note in either of his two threads. Maybe one happened to run across his 5 pages straight of off-topic personal attacks :lol:

Me neither. It's like discovering that someone enjoys the taste of boiled cauliflower but they won't tell you why.
