You seem to think that evolution (or matter, or the multiverse) must adapt to a preordained logic. Adjusting, approximately, to a fixed metaphysical truth.

That the formalism might not be giving answers that are "really" right ? How would we tell ? using some other logic ? Or empricial disproof ? But empirical disproof itself rests on the logical principle of non-contradiction. The only kind of logic that can be shown to be wrong is informal logic (e.g. the Wasson Test), which can be shown to be wrong using formal logic. > He calls for a relativistic > evolutionary logic where classical logic only would be justified for certain > special classes of problems.

And would itself be ineveitably based on some kind of logic. --~--~---------~--~----~------------~-------~--~----~ You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
