Sample posts and exchanges - essay author ws - 09-09-2013 10:30 AM

I debated the essay in a forum thread entitled, Dar al-Hikma. I participated under my own name, as member 'wstewart', July - August 2013.

A Freethought Forum sample:
  • Opening with a question: "Does Old Paul pass to New?" 1
  • Essay approach to the question: Establishing precedence of the unfelt time-gap concept over personal identity: 1
  • Magical sci-fi thought experiments on personal identity: The case for lighting a match: 1 2 3
  • Opponents approach the question with lines of reasoning that seem irreconcilable. Someone's wrong: 1
  • An opponent tries to explain unfelt time-gaps: The predicted result: 1
  • The actual result: 1
As backup, I attach a self-contained archival copy of the Freethought Forum thread: archive, Aug. 2013 (.zip).

Thank you.
