Re: Analysis of Mathematical Pattern in Quran.

2. Mathematical Refutation In this part, I expound on some of the refutations of the so-called debunking of the even-odd pattern of the Quran. And in order to achieve this objective, I have had to write a computer program to estimate the probability of occurrence by mere chance of both of these pat...

Re: Analysis of Mathematical Pattern in Quran.

Debunking the Debunker! There are two parts to this refutation, the first part is historical and the second is mathematical. The historical part has already been addressed in the comments sections of the blog of the alleged debunker (i.e. Martin Taverille) and is being merely reproduced here. The s...

Analysis of Mathematical Pattern in Quran.

In the name of Allah, the Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful Welcome to my forum! :) Following a post that I have written on Philosophy Now about the mathematical patterns in the Holy Quran, it has recently been brought to my attention that there has been a claim of a "debunking" or refutation of...

Re: Paleontology

So far we have surveyed the field of paleontology and now that we have a functional concept of how it works, we can purposefully discuss the case of the giant human remains found in Ecuador by Christian priest and archeologist Carlos Vaca in 1959. Now, the 7.50-meter reconstruction of the Ecuadorian...

Re: Paleontology

We have seen examples of how paleontologists apply their knowledge to reconstruct incomplete unearthed fossils. I would like to express some thoughts on the reconstruction process in general in the context of science. Reconstruction is a concept which is much used in the physical sciences and engine...

Paleontology

Welcome to my forum. :) Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts, it is really appreciated. I see you're posting that hoax about giant humans. The picture you show purporting to show a 'Swiss 'museum' displaying the skeleton of a giant human is in fact a fake giant skeleton made for Eric...

Reservation for the Will of God.

Welcome to anyone to my philosophy forum! :) What possible objection could God have? This is a very good question that was asked. As you might already know, I am a Muslim and in Islam we follow the instructions of God, the Almighty in the Holy Quran. In the Holy Quran, Allah, the All-Wise commands u...

Re: Paradox of Material implication

Do you recommend any logic book for beginners that might include the paradox for material implication and the contraposition rule above. I can do better than just recommend you! I can give you a link to a free digital copy! :) It is on Scribd and you will have to sign up with Scribd to download it ...

Paradox of Material implication

So we have the following deductive sequents. $$1. \sim A \vdash A \supset B \hspace{5em} (PMI)$$ $$2.\ \ \ A \vdash B \supset A \hspace{5em} (PMI)$$ Intuitively, by reference to the truth table, you can understand that they are true. For the first one, when $\sim A$ is true, $A$ is false and $A \sup...
