If his intent is to purchase to not consume, the question of replacing with a banana or burger is irrelevant.

Re: Man keeps 14 year old hamburger

worse than just buying it to eat it, because the cow has not only been killed but it was killed to be eaten and it wasn't even eaten I never understood this line of thinking. Why is it worse to kill a sentient being depending on what you do with the end product ? The cow died already, in the same c...

Re: Not accepting gifts and does eating meat makes you a bad person if you're aware of what's happening?

Accepting non vegan gifts rest on a few principles : - Do you value more the emotional feeling of the giver or the suffering of the beings involved in making the gifts ? - Is the giver close enough to you to know what internal reaction you would have by receiving a non vegan gift ? - Is the giver ab...

Re: Name The Trait ? More like #nameTheInference

59:00 --- 1:45:00 Here I was making a mistake claiming "if an argument is not sound then it's not valid." I was actually referring to "If an argument does not Semantically entails the conclusion then the argument is not valid." So basically if the premises evaluate to true but the conclusion evalua...

Really curious on how would you do that ?

Re: Great comments on new #namethetrait video

Hello Daz. Thanks for your response. Here are my comments : Noone is trying to change any rules. We are merely talking about what is being deemed "assumed premises" or "hidden premises". If these assumed premises are correctly assumed, the logic is completely valid and sound I'm sorry if I understoo...

Re: Great comments on new #namethetrait video

Hello Daz ! I wanted to interject a little bit to provide more support on the thesis that NTT doesn't lead to logical contradiction. I haven't read everything you wrote and I do not know your background in logic so please excuse my little text if it comes across as oversimplification. It may seems t...

Re: Great comments on new #namethetrait video

How about now? Line 17 is incorrect. Actually this rule is not correct : ¬(p ∧ q) ⇔ ¬p ∨ ¬q. It should be ¬(p ∧ q) ⇔ (¬p ∨ ¬q). You dropped a set of parenthesis that lead you to use associativity of ∧ instead of distributivity. Your applications of Modus ponens and transitivity of implication are c...

Re: Great comments on new #namethetrait video

line 13 because line 5 has a biconditional whereas line 12 has a conditional No problem, decompose the equivalence with two conditionals. (actually more work is to be done to verify if the elimination is valid) line 16 what do I call that? Implication elimination(Modus ponens) + implication elimina...

Re: Vegan blood tests

You meant "Doctors are concerned by low HDL number" right? I know the recommended minimum HDL is 0.36, but yeah I don't find mine to be shockingly low from an LDL to HDL ratio standpoint. A ratio about 2:1 is generally said to be good. Good comment about hormones. I know cholesterol acts as a precu...
