Hi Stephen P. King
But many minds are in agreement that God exists, so that must be true ?
In my proposed definitions, "must" only follows if and only if
there is no accessible possible world where a contraindication of the
agreement occurs. Put more simply, a statement is true iff there is no
knowable contradiction of the statement. The possible existence of an
unknowable contradiction to the truth of a statement acts to support the
idea of fallibility.
And must unicorns exist because I believe that they do ?
The existence or non-existence is not contingent on anything,
especially the belief of one person. Your question should be phrased as:
"Must unicorns be a physical creature because of my belief in such?" The
answer might be "yes" is there is some means by which your belief has
the causal power to generate a physical being.
