topmind, if you are going to engage the self-aggrandizing ignorants, please call them on the most substantive and obvious arguments against their horseshit.

The above is, frankly, 1) ignorant horseshit, 2) circular reasoning and 3) fallacious argument all at the same time. It basically says that behaviour is undefined outside the scope of objects and then affirms the consequent.

P=no object
Q=no behaviour

If P then Q
Q
Therefore, P

Alternatively, one can rephrase it as denying the antecedent:

P=behaviour
Q=objects

If P then Q
not P
therefore, not Q

The fact that one can easily have behaviour outside the scope of objects makes the whole thing nothing more than ignorant horseshit. Manipulation is behaviour. Received on Thu Jun 29 2006 - 12:30:38 CDT
