15) Target practice

Burden of proof is the obligation on somebody presenting a claim to provide evidence to support its truth (a warrant). Once evidence has been presented, it is up to any opposing "side" to show the evidence presented is not adequate. If claims were accepted without warrants, then every claim could simultaneously be claimed to be true.

History isn't written by the victors. It's written by the people with the time machines.

There is no "meat-space". We are all figments of each other's imagination!

Default Re: Purpose

For me personally the purpose of any forum I am a member of is to make me a better thinker. It can
range from learning new facts to full on consciousness raising. And anything in between. It is also an
eternal work in progress as it moves at glacial pace and there is never a point at which it is complete
