    z is not some separable element from x. x led to z which led to y. If no x, then no z. If no x, then no y. That's all my point was, so yeah, you're just nitpicking semantics.

No, that was not your point at all. Your point was that the Celestials created the multiverse. Your point was not that one event happened, followed by another event, followed by another event, resulting in the creation of the multiverse.

I am exposing the fallacious logic of your argument, which you have not addressed. You initially attempted to claim that that the Celestials created the multiverse. That claim is fallacious, wrong, incorrect, nonsense, rubbish, disproven.

Instead you are now attempting to move the goalposts by saying that one event follows another in a causal chain, and that should one event not occur, subsequent events would not occur, which exposes once again your conflation of creation and causation.

And "z is not some separable element from x"? What. On. Earth? Clearly you have never heard of these things called facts. Wittgenstein's opening statements of the Tractatus;

1: The world is all that is the case.
1.1: The world is the totality of facts, not of things.
1.13: The world divides into facts

    Wow, a lot more nitpicking semantics and meaningless parsing on your part. This statement, "The Celestials may have supplied the coup de grace (the detonation of their 'unimaginable weapons'), but the responsibility clearly rests not with this act but with the war itself." is just eye-rollingly desperate. You're disparaging Wittgenstein's name.

So no refutation of what I argued. Thanks for waving the white flag.

As far as "disparaging" goes, as illustrated by your statement "z is not some separable element from y", you've never read a line of Wittgenstein. Literally not one line.

    By the way, way to go, posting under a new alias to get around my ignore filter. Ignore filter now reapplied.

I'm neither familiar with you nor with your medical history, but this sounds like paranoia. Consult your doctor.
