An internet oasis of open discussion without personal attacks
Logic is not subjective.
""" but we can construct different logics with different rules. """
However, that would not work with mathematics with its present set of axioms, and it would not work with reality, as we know it.
Using your different logical rules are not subjective, either. USING. Not establishing. I am talking about USING.
You can't get away from objectivity other than with changing the rules.
But nobody has on this forum changed the rules. The violators simply ignore the current set of rules of logic, or don't know how to use them.
Logical speech as judged by one could be judged illogical by another.
What are we?? Are we philosophers, or are we... not philosophers.
The bread-and-butter of philosophy is using logic to argue the validity of a conclusion from a set of premisses.

Apparently you think that your comments about the literal mind give you the freedom to simply ignore what Einstein and Plato actually said. Of course this makes it easy to pretend that they are all essentially saying the same thing.
And it gives you another opportunity to once again rant about secularism, the Great Beast, education, indoctrination, experts, etc.

One of the most difficult thing to conquer about oneself is the desire for "sex". Celibacy is honorable. But one has to do a lot of battle against this natural desire. Any discussion?
