  1. z_offer added a post in a topic Is it possible to give what we don't have?   

    "A greedy man gives his cash with sorrow. However, he doesn't have his cash with sorrow."

    is identical to

    "A greedy man gives his cash with sorrow. However, he has his cash with no sorrow."

    The correct conclusion is:
    If you have something with no sorrow, you will give it away with sorrow.

    The sophistic wordplay compares 2 statements. Both contain "his cash with sorrow" ==> "gives" and "doesn't have" are falsely compared as well.

  2. z_offer added a post in a topic What is better - eternal bliss or a simple bread?   

    It is definitely a sophism.

    Disproof:
    It assigns 2 different meanings to the word "better":

    (1) All things of higher value than eternal bliss amount to an empty set.
    (2) Simple bread forms a set of higher power than an empty set
    Therefore, demagogically, Simple bread is more than eternal bliss.

    It compares apples with oranges. First, it compares the elements of 2 sets by value. The second comparison is by power. This cannot establish transitive property.
