  1. What do you think of this guy's voice? I think it's great
  2. I suppose the senses do produce a form of illusion in a sense. Think about it. One example that quickly comes to mind is the fact that when we zoom in far enough on material things, they mainly consist of empty space, yet to our senses they are so solid. Our perceptions are only truthful in a very relative sense it would seem. To be human is to be extremely limited. To be human is to be biased, with our relative perspectives of the absolute truth.
  3. The allegory of the cave.
  4. I've been thinking for a few years now that Johnson will be prime minister one day but I still don't believe Trump will be president. I've said for years Clinton is going to be president. Let's see what happens. Interesting times ahead.
  5. I am aware of what encouragement entails. What I want to know is, what are the REASONS that encouragement is needed? It seems to me that encouragement is simply reminding a fellow believer of the facts which are already known. Why is this needed? When we are feeling down does our memory fail us? Do we need convincing of Jehovah's love all over again? Does our faith diminish? Does our hope diminish? Does our knowledge become suspect? Why does repetition of already (supposedly) known truths lift our spirits? I am honestly seeking an explanation.
  6. You didn't answer my question.
  7. Why do people need encouragement? Why does repeating known facts over and over raise most peoples' spirits when they are feeling down? Is it to do with a need to know that someone else understands (identifies with) how they feel? It seems to me that it is a need to feel cared about by other human beings rather than a need to be reminded of known facts. (example: Jehovah's mercy, forgiveness, love etc etc etc). What do you think?
  9. I question, therefore I think. I think, therefore I am. Everything beyond this is based on assumption. This is all we can know for an absolute certainty if we are to be strictly scientific. Fascinating indeed.
  10. Not on test 1.
  11. Holmes has nothing to do with the question or the answer. He was brought in to the explanation of why the argument was not a deductively valid one for the reason I mentioned in my previous post.
  12. The only reason Sherlock Holmes was brought in was to highlight the fact that there are other possibilities. Maybe you are not familiar with his famous quote which goes something along the lines of, "Once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth." I agree with you that some of the explanations given could have been better but all perfectly logical to me.
