If translating books with 100% accuracy is impossible, then why bother to strive for accuracy and instead just write whatever sounds good in the language you're translating to, even if it includes the most "corrupting" changes to the original text?

>coworkers talk about their parents reading to them when kids/reading to their own kids
>"Anon you read a lot. Your parents must have read to you a lot"
>tell them no I could read everything by myself by age 3 or so
>"... that's kind of sad Anon"

Why is this sad? I don't get it. Did your parents read to you when you were a kid?

It's an undergrad knowledge that necessity is a property of propositions, not things or states of affairs. So how do "professional" philosophers of religion like Plantinga, Feser and Hart get away with this nonsense about necessary beings?
