You firmly believe in laws that you have good reason to believe will continue. edit (a contradiction)
What is the contradiction?
The contradiction is you also think there is no good reason to think they will.
When it was not the case, science would be impossible.
In that case GdB science might be impossible because past regularities might not continue. So you should believe science might not work.
But, of course you don’t.
Did you already read Hume and Kant? We are just doing the whole stuff over again…
As if these matters are settled.
There are two things you imagine about certain authorities. 1) They’ve definately got it right. 2) they agree with you.
The philosophy forum is for discussing them. Just about all philosophy is going over the same issues again.
Also we’ve discussed what would happen if the laws were different and you’ve said it’s all idle speculation because we don’t know if they could be. (another contradiction)
Again a contradiction? I’m afraid you have to spell it out…
Because you are saying the laws of nature could be otherwise.
And saying we don’t know whether they could or not.
