Godzilla proves that Australia in fact, does not exist.

(Excerpts from the comments on a recent post on Proposition 8.


pazi_ashfeather   If I talk about Godzilla I'm not implying that Godzilla exists. As such flynnacatri  may just be talking about Australia as a fictional entity

So what you're saying is, Godzilla is from Australia?


dr_sponge No, not at all. Godzilla is only from Australia in the sense that Godzilla is Australia.

Let me explain,
Australia is non-existent
Godzilla is non-existent
that is, both are Australia and Godzilla are the same thing, non-existent

therefore Australia = Godzilla

</lj></lj></lj>pazi_ashfeatherThat's nonsense. Godzilla and Australia both exist in some sense, or we wouldn't be able to have a meaningful conversation that involved them at all.

"Godzilla exists." That statement doesn't not mean "There is a real 100-meter tall giant radioactive lizard that lives in the sea and attacks cities from time to time" (although I would point out that you can't prove a negative, and recursion to endless possibilities removes any axiomatic disproof of Godzilla's existence :p).That's nonsense.

dr_sponge  i have traveled to the location specified. I found the land mass commonly referred to as "West Island", where the New Zealanders are pleasant enough, but seem to have problems saying the word "six". I did not find something matching the description provided by concept-Australia, as you seem to think I would, because none of what I found look anything at all like Godzilla would (if he existed).

Context is wondering whether Australia and Godzilla are getting a civil union or holding out for the full marriage deal.
