1. But you need observations to deduce from.
2. 'yer okay mate.
3. That you need observations to apply the logic to.
4. If you use a mathematical method and get the wrong answer, the method is wrong under those circumstances. Paradoxes are set up to point out flaws in logic.
5. True, but I was referring to physical rules. My fault.
6. You're half correct; in theory, the logic is fine, but the setup is flawed.The initial statement is self-contradictory. I'll have a look for a better example, but for now, you've got me on that one.
Watch this, it had me in tears laughing:

1. So are you arguing that you need to see/experience/understand something to have something to make theories about?
2. Not your mate.
3. Fine, so you need something before you can determine it's qualities. Logic and observation still aren't the same thing.
4. Paradoxes don't point out flaws in logic, logic points out flaws in paradoxes.
5. Well it was I that said not all rules have exceptions to begin with.

1. Either observe something, or observe something's effects, or observe something's causes, or observe something, then make a theory from that, which then allows you to theorise about other things.
2. I still think of you as a chum; I haven't had an argument this good in ages.
3. No, observation is a part of logic.
4. "A paradox is a seemingly true statement or group of statements that lead to a contradiction or a situation which seems to defy logic or intuition." Paradoxes are created to defy logic.
5. Then it's your fault. Happy?
6. Can't see the picture.

1. The problem with that is that it's very difficult to prove a link between cause and effect, and determine absolute facts on a fundamental level. Philosophy usually deals with fundamental ideas, like god, and uses logic to disprove aspects.
2. You obviously haven't been here long.
3. It's a part of deductive and inductive reasoning, which are a part of logic yes.
4. Paradoxes aren't created, they just are, also the key word there are "seems to defy logic".
5. What's my fault?
6. It was a picture of a smug bastard.

1. I fully agree; however, science takes a more front-line position in searching for that link, and is more successful, unless you count theoretical science as a part of philosophy, in which case it's 50/50.
2. I haven't, and I don't intend to stay long either; once my A-levels start in September, I'll have a lot of work to do (I'm taking 5), and all of my spare time I'm going to spend working, because I'm a materialist and thus like money.
3. Yes, the starting point. Glad we got that one cleared up.
4. Most paradoxes are created as a thought experiment, to demonstrate the (apparently) flawed logic or setup which can lead to (seemingly) unsolvable problems. If you look at paradoxes individually on Wikipedia, most have proposed answers.
5. At this point I'm not quite sure; if you find out, let me know.
6. I figured it'd be something like that.
7. This is a really good way of arguing; I'm going to use it in the future. It breaks things down well.

I'd argue that paradoxical problems are created rather than just paradoxes, if that isn't splitting hairs. :P

What's this, a guy called Deckard who's favourite film is Blade Runner? Well I never :P
It is a top quality film though.

I distrust patriotism; the reasonable man can find little in these days that is worth dying for. But dying against - there's enough iniquity in Europe to carry the most urbane or decadent into battle.

Ummm, tough one this.

Shawshank Redemption - Classic really
Aliens - You could argue the first one, but this is the ultimate action film
Jaws - I could watch this everytime it's on.
Predator - It has a minigun.
Terminator 2 - The only bad point about this film is that Robert Patrick doesn't kill John Connor.

Other mentions should go to Rocky, Inception, the recent batman films, lord of the rings and the thing.
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.
