Actually I'm wrong. I stated that walking IS controlled falling. Sorry about the mishap.

Controlled falling is a FORM of falling. Just like a dress is a FORM of clothing but clothing is not all dresses.

SPrinkZ, I'll ask again..... can I ask you something directly?

It will only need a 'yes' or 'no' answer.

@Humanaction

I can already tell you know you're wrong. You're literally employing any trick you can think of to try and prove yourself right. If that helps you sleep at night so be it, but I'm not going to have any trouble being wrong, or right. I just know if I am wrong I can be right later. You're just screwed. lol

Logic was a tool invented by intellectual bullies to pervert meaning to whatever was necessary at the time. Aristotle used his 'logic' to squelch modern scientific discovery until the 1500's. I am not impressed with logic at all unless it is used for science. Logic when applied to the semantics of language is really, really bad at best.

"A controlled fall is a form of falling. Yes. Is walking a form of falling? No. It's a form of controlled falling. Definition fixed

So, if A=B and C=A, then B!=C? Please refer to the transitive property to see where you've erred. "

I guess if logic was completely useful in this.

If all men are mortal
and Socrates is a man then he's mortal.
I am not saying that all mortals are Socrates though.

If walking is a form of controlled falling
then controlled falling is walking. That's all I stated.

It's more like saying that trees are a form of life. Wood comes from a tree but is not a form of life [it would be dishonest to say it is since it doesn't do any living functions]. That is not saying that wood is living.

More strawmen please. The Wizard of Oz must go on

"I am not impressed with your credentials because they are nonexistent."

Credentials are just pieces of paper. There are plenty of geniuses that do not need them to accomplish things. Most of the time people go to college/university merely to get the credentials because people don't take them seriously UNTIL THEY DO. Which is downright stupid. The dumbest part is that most people forget nearly everything they learn in school anyway. Most people are able to hold onto thoughts for merely a few weeks and then forget it all. I can't forget anything I learn. It's really good in some ways, but awful in others because I can't deal with a school environment--you really don't learn a damn thing. You just jump through hoops every week/semester until you get through them all and you probably know only a little more than you did.

The Olysquat and the powersquat are relatively the same.

Relative to what? For you to state that some is "relatively the same", you should clarify to what you are comparing. This is what relative means.

You just find it fun to twist words.

Guilty. I find it most amusing.

Too bad I don't get emotionally charged over you.

Obviously! If you were, you'd probably spend most of the day arguing with me on an internet forum or something.

Your meme generator pic is full of irony because I do know the meaning of the word strawman and you use it with piss poor efficiency. Get a better argument style. It only works on insipid mouth-breathers.

@SPrinkZ

Also, isn't Buffalo a renowned party school with relatively little credentials?

Pretty much; it's also a lot cheaper than my first school: RIT. I studied Software Engineering before Biomedical Science.

I am not impressed with your credentials because they are meaningless.

I am not impressed with your credentials because they are nonexistent.

You're an intellectual dishonest person

You're an intellectually daft person.

I am surprised you made it out of university.

Twice!

Strawman #3445:

"So, a controlled fall is not a form of falling. However, an oly style squat and a power style squat are the same thing? Oh what a tangled web we weave."

A controlled fall is a form of falling. Yes. Is walking a form of falling? No. It's a form of controlled falling. Definition fixed. The oly squat and the powersquat are not the same exact thing in the same way that turning one's palm upward or turning it downward are not the same thing but use roughly the same muscles and require a similar action. The Olysquat and the powersquat are relatively the same. They are both squats. That's like saying black's chess pieces are different from white's because of the color and positioning on the board.

You're clearly some form of psychopath. You just find it fun to twist words. Too bad I don't get emotionally charged over you.

I am not impressed with your credentials because they are meaningless. You don't even care about how wrong you are, or how you are constructing arguments I never made. You're an intellectual dishonest person. I am surprised you made it out of university.

"On the other hand, if you never initiated the forward motion, you wouldn't need to catch the fall. "

On the other hand if you were never born you could have never argued about this inane crap in the first place.

No. I actually claimed that walking is a controlled fall.

"You claim that walking is a form of falling."

No. I actually claimed that walking is a controlled fall. Which is qualitatively different. A controlled fall implies that one CONTROLS the fall--the control comes from moving the leg forward, and then falling into it.

Stop the strawman. You're erecting an argument I never made, and by addressing it I am empowering it. Done.

First definition:

Strawman: "A straw man or straw person, also known in the UK as an Aunt Sally,[1][2] is a type of argument and is an informal fallacy based on misrepresentation of an opponent's position.[3] To "attack a straw man" is to create the illusion of having refuted a proposition by replacing it with a superficially similar yet unequivalent proposition (the "straw man"), and to refute it, without ever having actually refuted the original position.[3][4]"

Just a quick wiki definition. Now let me resume what I was saying...

I've never tried being stupid before.

Obviously it just comes naturally to you.

he gets frustrated at the fact that I can point out all the fallacies in his thinking

He's probably more frustrated that you do not know what a logical fallacy is. Either that or he's frustrated you think he's your friend.

If gravity wasn't pushing me down in the first place, I wouldn't be able to push off of the ground

Kind of, but in this context it is wrong. If this were true, we would put weight on our backs whenever we walked anywhere because it would make walking easier. Clearly this logic is incorrect.

I think your argument falls completely, and utterly flat just like as if you didn't catch your fall while walking.

On the other hand, if you never initiated the forward motion, you wouldn't need to catch the fall.

And THAT is how you **** all over some undergrad twit from the midwest ladies, and gentlemen.

I got my degree in New York. You can't even form an insult without being wrong.

My one friend who smokes every day is unbelievably stupid and can't hold a train of thought for more than 2-3 seconds.

"Friend" - sure. Lol.

We'll start back up here because it is the first post with any content:

Gravity is not the chief force of locomotion.

Gravity is the chief force in falling. You claim that walking is a form of falling. Therefore, by your reasoning, gravity must be the chief force in walking. You said it, not me.

You're probably a philosophy major because you have bull**** written all over everything you write.

Biomedical Science at the University of Buffalo actually - summa cum laude.

I use the force off of the ground to propel myself forward

The ground cannot initiate a force against you in this case. You must initiate the force; therefore, one must conclude that the forward force is created by the body and thus is not the result of merely falling.

oh... I thought it would be so simple to guess that even a big bag of simpletons stamped with the label of 'dumb', left in simpleton park on the stupidest day of the year would be able to guess...nevermind a superhero genius like you.

ah well nevermind...I'll remain in hope you eventually see it.

You're probably hoping for a cure for world-hunger--world peace--an end to rape--equality for all and fairness for each of us--probably for a way to make beer fly into our mouths and every man able to play football instead of vicariously living out their dreams through hulking juiced titans, or perhaps you're just hoping that mosquitoes will just go away.

Or more contextually you are probably hoping I shut the **** up or die. Whichever is easiest.

My one friend who smokes every day is unbelievably stupid and can't hold a train of thought for more than 2-3 seconds. When he doesn't smoke he's fairly sharp. Not as sharp as me, but well off enough intellectually that I can hold a conversation with him.

He's so stupid when he smokes that he gets frustrated at the fact that I can point out all the fallacies in his thinking. And it makes him way more emotional and impulsive--just generally dumber. I don't find that to be an enjoyable quality.
