This is a great philosophical discussion much like a Platonic dialogue of Socrates.

Yes, I think therefore I am..

That was a sickly forum. I prefer the simplicity of Physforum.

Don't be so close-minded.

That is a great intellectual debate IMO.

The debate might have been OK but all the movement on the screen made me have motion sickness, like vertigo.

Apparently you don't know what a metaphor is. Look it up.

A metaphor is partially true so can't really be said true or false. The truth of it lies somewhere in between.

There is no such thing. Any statement is either true, false, or meaningless.Religious texts like the bible, koran, book of mormon, etc, are false.

I looked up Wikipedia for examples of metaphors and you can't possibly say they are "either true, false, or meaningless". For when you use a metaphor you are saying something meaningful. OK I'd admit there is no place for metaphor in science, but definitely they are acceptable in literature. This is rather a pointless argument really.

wikipedia is not a valid reference and yes I can and did say that metaphors are false statements.

Ask any scientific instructor whether wikipedia is an accredited reference in the classroom. NO. It's not.

It is pretty good for general background knowledge. I admire what the community has done in setting up Wikipedia. Thanks very much Jimmy Wales.

Sure. But it's not accredited for obvious reason. The issue is scientific illiterates always think they know better. They tell us in these public forums.
