My questions
« on: January 13, 2012, 10:50:43 PM »
I was wondering if the earth is flat.. Then were does the water go shouldn't it fall off the side of the earth?
 
Also You said the stars are projected into the sky.. Whats projecting the stars, and if its some large projector and not a ball of gas then how does the sun warm us as it does?

How big are the planets if not like the ones in round maps.

Is the earth in the center of the universe again. or is it the sun??

What do you believe about the moon landing. You know Neil Armstrong when he landed on the moon. :-X

Please read the FAQ.
Why do we fall back to earth? Because our weight pushes us down, no laws, no gravity pulling us. It is the law of intelligence.

Only three of those questions are answered in the FAQ.

Well then, he or she can come back with a more concise list of questions for us to dismiss.

And how are those two suggestions mutually exclusive?

The 'Or' operator does not mean mutually exclusive.  That would be the 'Xor' operator.

I guess you didn't make it down this far:

Quote from: Wiki
Following this kind of common-sense intuition about "or", it is sometimes argued that in many natural languages, English included, the word "or" has an "exclusive" sense. The exclusive disjunction of a pair of propositions, (p, q), is supposed to mean that p is true or q is true, but not both. For example, it might be argued that the normal intention of a statement like "You may have coffee, or you may have tea" is to stipulate that exactly one of the conditions can be true.

It's the incorrect use of the word or that's confusing the issue.

And they would be sometimes wrong.  After all, why should you not be allowed to have coffee and tea?

So, we have established that in common English 'or' can sometimes mean 'XOR' and sometimes 'OR', thus rendering your initial objection irrelevant, thanks. I don't know how good your English is, but here's an example:

XOR: Would you like to go to the mall, or get groceries?

OR: Would you like to go to the mall or get groceries?

There's a matter of inflection apart from the comma which I can't convey, of course, but hopefully you get the idea.

Hopefully this addresses the OP's questions, thank you.

markjo's statement is correct because he said "the 'Or' operator".

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logic_operation

So technically the statement wasn't about English grammar, because then "or" would be considered a conjunction, not an operator. ;)


Hopefully this addresses the OP's questions, thank you.

I like how this was conveniently ignored.  Anyhoo, Tnlamp, if you are reading this, please read the FAQ and then please make a new thread with any questions you have.
