    Imagination

    Do you think you can do anything you want in your imagination?

    i dont thinks so:
    ( Look at my signature )

    catch my drift?
    there are things that are impossible...
    so the people that say that,"Nothing is impossible." are wrong.
    Even in your imagination, you cannot do everything.
    I am the Alpha and the Omega!!!

    No my friend...ur wrong. NOTHING is impossible.....think of the time ppl thought that going to outerspace was impossible....is it still? and ur sig is old and it could be used in a billion^2^2^2 diff ways, so it's not a good enough backup to support ur huge point
    oh i'm sorry! i didn;t realize my fist was rushing to meet ur face!

    "No my friend...ur wrong"

    No, he's not.

    "NOTHING is impossible"

    Wrong.

    "think of the time ppl thought that going to outerspace was impossible....is it still? "

    No, your point? Just because there WERE instances where people thought things were impossible that later turned out not to be true does NOT MEAN that ALL instances where people think things are impossible will turn out to be possible.

    Human beings are not magic, we are BOUND by the laws of physics, there are PLENTY of things that as a result are impossible, for example it is IMPOSSIBLE for me to flap my arms so fast that i take off. F-A-C-T.

    It's impossible to measure the momentum and the position of a particle beyond a given accuracy, it's impossible to create or destroy energy, it's impossible to create a perpetual motion machine, it's impossible to be in England and the US at the same time....... and on.... and on....

    "prove it"

    Prove what? The heinsenberg uncertainty principle? I can't prove that to you because you wouldn't understand the proof.

    The first law of thermodynamics? see above.
    The second law of thermodynamics? see above.

    Being in England and the US at the same time........ you can't see the "proof" for yourself?

    And flapping my arms so fast that I can take off, the proof is easy, the maximum amount of lift I can get is not larger than my weight.

    Can you prove that everything's possible? Didn't think so, because its not.

    Damnit Clyde, you beat me to it. Do you just hang around here 24/7 waiting for someone to say something blatantly wrong? *pout* I never get to have any fun. You're always there first. (It's a good thing too. Sometimes people leave me speachless.)

    if the phrase "nothing is impossible" is wrong, then nothing is possible. but is nothing possible, or is nothing possible?
    if both, then how can there be no possibility and an abstract idea of nothing be possible? contradiction.

    OMG! I've been rumbled *Runs off and hides*

    "if the phrase "nothing is impossible" is wrong, then nothing is possible"

    That is a perfect example of a logical flaw. (and incidently one of the reason why so much philosophy is SO VERY wrong, it's easy to make a logical error - especially if all your using is language, but in philosophy you have no way of testing your hypothesis, so you just build on your error, and then introduce more and then build on them, and you know what you end up with? Zen and the Art of Motorcycle maintainance, man that book ........ed me off)

    "nothing is impossible" (which is equal to "everything is possible")being wrong does NOT therefore mean "nothing is possible", since "nothing is impossible" being wrong does not preclude "somethings being impossible" from being correct.

    Bleh I hate the English language sometimes, a programming example makes it easier to understand:

    If i have an array type BOOL, and i say that the statement "All elements of the array are true" is false that does not therefore mean that all elements are false, since some could be true and some false.

    In Quantum Physics there is a theory that there are an infinite number of realities, each reality parallel to another. These realities are created when something happens differently than in the other reality. For example, someone decides to not cross the street at a specific location, or even a specific molecule not going the same direction in a different reality. This means that across the expanse of space/time, there is a reality in which everything is true, where pigs can fly, and where Al Gore isn't Satan's son. But if you mean in our reality, you may be correct...but so many things defy logic it's usually not worth bothering over anyway.

    I know you were joking there, but I think a better translation would be "not everything is possible".
