Creationism is the best philosophy

Comparing philosophies it is clear creationism is the winner. Materialism validates facts, the existence of a material thing is a factual issue. That leaves opinion, like opinion on beauty, outside of materialism. So then they devised postmodernism which asserts that subjectivity is inherent in statements of fact. That doesn't make much sense. The best thing ofcourse is to accept the validity of both fact and opinion, each in their own right. That is creationism. With the two domains of creator and creation, opinion is validated in respect to a creator, and fact is validated in respect to a creation. Where choice is the mechanism of creation, defined as making one of alternative futures the present.

A fact is obtained by evidence of a creation forcing to produce a 1 to 1 corresponding model of it in the mind.
An opinion is formed by making a choice about what it is that makes a choice.

If I leave my bread in the toaster too long it burns. Fact.

Doesn't your toaster have a timer on it? Seems you have an unsafe toaster.

Welcome back with your familiar old subject matter Syamsu. Nice graphic.

As far as I can tell, this was the first one:

Over 6 years ago. Can you believe that? Where does the time go, eh?

I am not sure what’s worse. Someone being staunchly postmodernist or not knowing they are being staunchly postmodernist?

Syamsu, I think you’re doing the later.

Calling this PM is an insult. This is just empty words.
When on shaky ground try to show false statements with a graphic.

Better a faulty toaster, than a brain without a tap to halt the verbal diarrhoea.

Syamsu. Regarding the potentially unsafe toaster. Imagine it was your toaster. What would you do to prove to yourself if it was working properly or not?

The OP seems to me a jumble category errors. I don't see Creationism as of the same type of position as postmodernism or materialsm. In fact I am not sure those two are the same type of category. I think one could be a post-modern materialist. Someone like Deleuze. One can explain beauty via Materialism. One could have a theistic materialism, iow with a creation event, but a non-trnscendent deity. Creationism if demonstrated might give AN explanation of beauty or it might not. But then it's not demonstrated, so this is hypothetical.

The OP seems so jumbled with missing arguments, category errors and false dichotomies it's hard to even argue against because there is nowhere to get a handhold.

Note: Syamsu does not use the term "creationism" in quite the way you might normally be used to hearing it used. To get a sense of the way in which he has used it, while making this same single point over the last 6 or 7 years, click on his name, click "Search user's posts" and then search for the term "creationism", starting with the OP of the topic to which I linked above. That topic was started 6 years ago and is the same, essentially, as this one.

Yuo can find a synopsis of Syamsu's views by picking pretty much any one of the posts that come up as a result of such a search, because he repeats the same point over and over and over and over and over and over again. This 6 year old post, for example, is as good as any:

Creationism is the most believed stupid ******** idea by most stupid ******** boneheads.
The stupidiest thing about what Syamsu is saying here is nothing to do with what you think he is saying. I’ve told him before it’s both disingenuous and naive to expect people to understand “creationism” beyond the Christian context ... yet he persists with his poor use of words and does little more than repulse people from his ideas in a purposeful way.

I can only assume he gets some kind of perverse pleasure from fooling people in this manner more than he would from a meaningful discussion - I do the same from time to time as do others, yet Syamsu does nothign other than this sadly.

Syamsu -

If you wish to plead ignorance here’s an excuse not to do so any longer:
