So the reason you acted was the reason you created but that is not one of the many reasons you acted. Well I'm glad you cleared that up and made everything crystal clear, for a second there I almost thought you were confused. > >Your preference can count as much as any other consideration. > You did X rather than Y because you preferred X, and you preferred X for a reason OR you preferred X for no reason, there is no third alternative. >> Bullshit. >> > > >That isn't a rebuttal. > But it's the gospel truth nevertheless. > > I have no system for writing these words. Not entirely true. Judging strictly from a semantic viewpoint you have a point, it does seem close to random; but you do follow most of the laws of English grammar and spelling so there is some system. > I am writing them in real time based on nothing whatsoever other than > what makes sense to me at the moment. > So if somebody asks you, as I have done many times, "why did you write that" you have a answer for them, perhaps not a good answer, I certainly don't think they were good answers, but at least you had a answer, a reason, for writing what you did. If you had said "I had absolutely no reason for writing what I did, I just wrote it" then you would be admitting that what you wrote was unintelligent gibberish and conceding the argument. > A Yellow traffic light is not Go and it isn't Stop, but doesn't mean > 'don't stop' or 'don't go' either. The meaning of a yellow light changes according to culture and circumstance and is not inherent in the light itself, but everybody agrees that a yellow traffic light is a traffic signal that is yellow, and everybody agrees that a light, any light at all, is either yellow or it is not yellow, there is no third alternative. A action itself is independent of culture, it either happened or it didn't happen and if it did happen it happened for a reason or it happen for no reason, there is no third alternative. In English the word for things that happen for no reason is "random". John K Clark -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
