nothing is fact: if true, then it is an opinion that nothing is fact, therefore things are fact.
nothing is fact: if false, things are factual.

“Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.” -Marcus Aurelius
it was a good concept, but poorly conveyed. because an inch is a ******* inch.

My opinion?

She's either deeply retarded, or an attention whore, and I'm wondering why you're associating with her in the first place.

She's completely wrong, but not why everyone thinks.

Reality is ultimately subjective, and most philosophers agree that we really have no way of knowing the reality around us exists as we know it, or disappears when we are not looking.

That being said, by saying an inch was an inch, she was claiming an inch in this reality that we see today - she was assuming a frame of reference. Which, by not stating otherwise, makes her wrong.

I mean, "lol, dumb bitch"

What the person was trying to say is that units of quantification are only worth what we determine them to be worth. An inch is the distance it is because we all agree on it.

either the person is VERY stupid or VERY smart. and since they are on facebook i think its the first. and if the second then it makes a lot of sence, how can you prove 2+1=3? why not 2+1=2?

because if you have I I and I you have I I I which is shown as 3, representing I I I

maths is literally the worst example you could have used

They've got it all figured out. How have we been so narrow-minded?

Poorly expressed, but actually a valid point - I can't quite remember the exact terminology, as it has been a while since I read on the subject, but this is actually one of the key issues in both history and linguistics = How do we know that something is what we say it is?

I think that there are 3 views:

1: Something is what we say it is simply through it being. For example, a rock is a rock. It will always be a rock, and a rock is what it is, due to its characteristics of rockishness, and it will continue to be rockish independent of man.

2: Something is what we say it is because we all agree that that is what it is. So, for example, what we call a rock COULD originally have been called, say, a radiator, but because EVERYONE AGREES that it should be called a rock, it becomes referred to as a rock and thence BECOMES a rock.

3. Something is what we say it is because each of us thinks it to be what we are referring to. It is a rock because I think it is called a rock. When you talk about a rock, you could actually be talking about what I believe to be called a hammer, but I would not know, since I believe that you are talking about a rock.

The last one is more complex and subtle in reality, but that is a sort of broad overview of it. If you want to know more, read a book called "Historical Linguistics" by Larry Trask, a fantastic, but occasionally baffling book, about the relation of language to history, and whether we can actually believe what we are told about history, due to the issues of the last two..... It gets pretty trippy.



TL:DR, she's expressing in a tragically inept way a valid philosophical and linguistic point. Pic unrelated.
