Christian Tractatus

(Text as at 12/08/2007 10:17:46)

Any proposition of reason may turn out to be false due to confusion of ideas or to errors of calculation or logic.

  1. That is, any chain of reasoning may turn out to be invalid.
  2. The above statement may appear to be too strong. Although for consistency's sake I may be forced to assume that any proposition is only probably true, I am not seriously suggesting that there is some non-zero probability that Pythagoras' theorem may turn out to be false.
