• Jen,
    First, you din ansa da ?

    Second, Re: Your distracted aside…
    I musta missed that line…
    But, then… I missed the whole first season.

    Just saw the first episode of SG: Atlantis.
    Wasn’t too impressed.
    Caught the “… galaxy far, far away” line,
    though they have a tendency to overdo a good thing…
    e.g. the ST:OS references in the S:SG-1 Geekdaydream episodes.

    No cute as a bug actress in the
    Kate Jackson/Amanda Tapping mold.
    Gotta have my teddy bear!


    At least I answered your question…which lacked a question mark.


  • well,
    i might expect that if they were Mennonite or held similar beliefs, then it would be obvious that they were beings of greater intelligence.
    By the same token, if they were beings of greater intelligence, they obviously would have Mennonite beliefs.

    so what your saying is:
    all mennonites are beings of greater intelligence, therefore all beings of greater intelligence are mennonites. thats the converse of the A categorical, which is not logically equivalent, and since they are contingent sentences, its not valid either.

    they are not contingent
    it’s just a logical assumption.


  • but to assert that they are a logical assumption, you need to make another argument as to why. and because their truth value must be derived from experience, rather than definition (mennonite does not, by definition, mean “being of greater intelligence”), they are contingent.
