... you have found the proposition to be rhetorical. Now we're getting somewhere. Now that you have found the proposition to be rhetorical, it should change your perception of it.
As for pressing people to respond, that seems to be a misconception. I might stress participants to take to the test what the proposition says, but I do not stress participants to respond - as if participants would if they don't wanna - although I do stress that participants have not taken to the test what the proposition says which is evident by the lack of the participants citing what the proposion mentions -which seems odd since they are addressing the proposition- in effect showing what the proposition says true.
That you chose to call the proposition a "trick question" or would like to call it whatever, if that's your thing, go right ahead, but realize that such actions are entirely your own doing, your responsibility, and won't tell us anything about the truth-value of the proposition. It might tell us something about the one doing the labeling though. I stress therefore, you reconsider before doing so, you wouldn't want to present yourself in such a manner, would you now?
Anyway .... as for the claim that there is no way around it that the logic is unsound, well, you know the drill, right?
rejected and denied by many, accepted and embraced by few : falsifiability
- it is not what we (think we) know that matters, it is what we can show true that does
as the maxim demands; truth is demonstrably fact and fact is demonstrably true
everything else ... mere BS -
