Hey Luis,

>>>Whether you choose to apply to religion, philosophy, or science, nonfalsifiability is simple: can real or imaginary variables disprove the hypothesis? To wit: "All cows are black" = falsifiable. " Panentheism accepts only true statements as true." = nonfalsifiable.>>Electrons exist! I don’t recall this question. However, ask me to *define* electrons, and you’ll find me scratching my head (again, I expect it will confound you that I can actually work from a tentative definition of terms like ‘electron’).>H: "Ask him whether humans can have any knowledge of objective truth, and he might just plead the 5th." L: From this forum (...) (Luis: "It is a perfectly viable supposition that an objective reality exists independent of our ability to know it.") From Counterbalance (...) (Luis: "Although an objective ‘reality’ exists, it is impossible for any subject or subjects to evaluate it in a genuinely objective way.") If this is your understanding of the 5th, then I suggest you reread the Constitution."
