Dialetheism/Antinomy/Paradox -What are the differences ?
First of all, how do you pronounce dialetheism /antinomy ? hehe.
Late last night, I happened to browse a particular forum that I check once every blue moon.
Someone was arguing that contradictions could be true and hereby proving the existence of a god. (Rolling eyes)
The poster kept using the terms, dialetheism, antinomy and paradox interchangeably, as though they were all the same exact thing and the poster stated these things were "impossible" to refute.
(Impossible to refute ? I detect bullshit)
However, I remember another RRS poster, Blake, mentioning total rejection of Dialetheism.
Now, I looked these terms up (it was getting late and I did not feel like doing all of the extensive reading that google gave me) and while they all seem to involve contradictions, there seemed to be a difference and not terms that are synonyms.
Rather than waste time trying to sift through all of the essays and the encyclopedia definitions, I thought I would take a shortcut and just ask here.
What are the differences in these terms ? Is it logical to reject dialetheism as Blake once stated ? And just how could contradictions be used to prove a god ?
I was going to post the link to the particular forum so readers here get a better idea, but that site is down this morning.
Any input on this ? I need a little edu-ma-cating.
A casual stroll through the lunatic asylum shows that faith does not prove anything.
