  • Re: SUGGESTION: Lookup passage as first/default command box option

    [quote user="Graham Criddle"]Of the options you suggest I would favour never changing the suggestion order for Bible references - then we would know what to expect.[/quote] I suspect that for different tasks different options are best. I generally prefer the way it works now as it is usually in the order I want for the task at hand.

    [quote user="Hamilton Ramos"] A premise assumed to be true is mentioned in an excerpt that you agree with. From there you work to a conclusion. What I object is that to me an unchecked premise . . . [/quote] A false premise is equally possible and equally damaging in both deductive and inductive logics. Difference genres in scripture provide propositions

    [quote user="Hamilton Ramos"]I do agree with MJ that a valid true initial point should be the base for further study / discussion, but my disagreement is that such departure point may not be a manmade theological construct our of synch with revealed truth or the character and nature of God, or an addition to the Scripture (as in long formula in Mt 28

  • Re: PBB - Old Testament Pseudepigrapha Milestones

    Welcome to the forums. I'm not sure what you mean by "Biblical apocryphas" so I'm not quite sure how to answer you. You seem to have a good grasp of their historical canonical status.

    [quote user="Denise"] but inductive always has deductive in the background, possibly unstated but necessary.[/quote] I agree. Perhaps, if it were stated more often, the false dichotomy statements as given above would become less frequent.

    [quote user="Justin Gatlin"]I was not using the word implies in the loose sense of "suggests." Mathematical induction is a formal method of proof that shows that if the base case is true, all forms will be true. Once you show the base case is true, all others must also be true. My point is quite narrowly that your misgivings about the terminology "inductive

    a million second sale of all resources containing the word "million" or the number "1,000,000". For those without a calculator handy, that's a little over 11 1/2 days.

  • Re: Tagging Suggestions / thoughts in L8 Library

    [quote user="Justin Gatlin"]In mathematics (my secular training) inductive does not mean that something is probably, but not necessarily true. It means that you show that (1) the proposition is true for some number and (2) demonstrate that if it is true for a variable n, then it is also true for n+1. So you start from the specific example and then show
