Comment: Subjective perception does not mean

(See in situ)


Subjective perception does not mean

Subjective perception does not mean subjective reality.

1) The opening statement by Benoit confuses perception with reality and therefore invalidates his points.

2) Benoit's position that God is subjective and therefore reality is subjective is both unsupported in the premise and unsupported in its conclusion.

3) Benoit confuses matter with objectivism. Cannot a spiritual existence (without matter) (or energy) be objectively present? His claim is not clearly stated nor is it supported.

4) Benoit's fourth point that two observers cannot observe matter (which is always in motion) at the same instant again confuses perception with reality and in fact he implies by his argument that there is an objective reality (but it is never observed the same by two viewers).

I've rarely seen someone fail so utterly to make an argument in a debate. I can only assume that he failed to grasp the claims of subjectivism before attempting to debate it.
