For example, I mentioned the ...

  • Re: What is a fact?

    Hello Niels, Thanks for the clarification. It seems that when I first read your first post, my perceptive processes &quot;saw&quot; the two propositions as being identical. At the time, I wondered why you were making two identical statements separated by an &quot;or&quot;. Which led me to ask myself &quot;Did Niels make a mistake here?&quot; Now ...

  • Re: Exclusion constraints

    &nbsp;[quote user=&quot;Niels Hoogeveen&quot;]We are in full agreement with respect to gravity. It&#39;s not a fact, which can easily be shown since it is a noun.[/quote] Oops - my poor use of language. What I should have said it was not until about 1686 that a human observer uttered the proposition that: &nbsp; &quot;Any two bodies in the ...

  • What is a fact?

    Note to Niels: Your original proposition was asserted in the &quot;Extensions to ORM&quot; thread but the proposition is about the Philosophy of ORM so I moved the discussion to this new thread in the &quot;Philosophy&quot; section.&nbsp; In this thread, you asserted the following proposition: &quot;A fact is nothing more and nothing less than a ...

    Niels, Since this is more of a &quot;how to&quot; than an &quot;extension to ORM&quot; I have started this new thread&nbsp;in the ORM Techniques section. Please will you make a &quot;re-start&quot; post in the new thread that explains what you want to discuss.&nbsp; Thanks Ken&nbsp;

  • Re: Exclusion constraints

    Hi Niels, Yes - it is all about Philosophy - where I use the term to mean &quot;The practice of making sense of the world&quot;. [quote user=&quot;Niels Hoogeveen&quot;]Does there exist something like a &quot;naked&quot; fact? [/quote]&nbsp; I would say &quot;no&quot; - Facts only exist because they have been asserted by a person. (A fact maybe ...

    &nbsp;[quote user=&quot;Clifford Heath&quot;]Ken, yours may be a fair comment in many cases [/quote] Clifford, It was not my intention to make a &quot;fair comment.&quot;&nbsp; My intention was to assert propositions about the nature of the relationship between &quot;facts&quot; and &quot;beliefs&quot;. Specifically: a)&nbsp; A belief ...
