Philosophers and rhetoricians, Welcome!

Split from John chap 2 24-25 διὰ τὸ αὐτὸν γινώσκειν πάντας

Okay, so by extension, why isn't Mark 3:5 properly rendered as the CROWD's anger, instead of (incorrectly) attributing the anger to Christ? Antecedent is the crowd, plural.

Upside Down Grammar

Over the years, I've been witness to some terrible grammar at Textkit, B-Greek and Carm. from those claiming to "know" something about Greek grammar, and specifically about biblical Greek grammar. Not a few of these charlatans even call themselves "instructors," "scholars," "teachers" "experts" etc. of the Koine. In this thread, I'm going to be compiling some of the silly grammatical claims which these people have gone on record to make. So without further ado, let's ...

Help with finding an ancient Greek riddle.

Hello,

I am reading a version of Epikouros letters, insight, fragments translated to Latvian. It seems to me that it has been arranged and translated by Latvian authors. At one point from fragments there is a refference to something that directly translates back form Latvian to English as "Riddle about covered father", it might be "Cloaked father", Latvian is a poor lanuage. I know this is a long shot and maybe even the wrong place ...

scire esse uno gradu distat a cognitione intima rerum. Quare hoc? Quia cogitatio est exemplar rerum.

Illusion of Time

Cottidianum cogitata de tempore perperam accredimus.
//We wrongly accept everyday thoughts about time.//

EDIT:
nihil prorsus similis alteri
//No thing is exactly like another thing//

No moment is exactly like another moment. So no moments repeat themselves. There is no true cycle of time back to a previous state because every moment is a new and unique moment. Every morning is a new and unique morning. Every thought is a new and unique thought, regardless ...

quae habemus non possumus tenere

quae habemus non possumus tenere. Vitae tempus sunt. Quid metu de aliquid incolaremur?
