Can one create a coherent metaphysical view in E-prime?
in Philosophy

https://www.nobeliefs.com/eprime.htm

For those uninterested in reading that introduction, E-prime follows from the view that the verb “to be” presents an ambiguous filler to English.  To speak in E-prime, one must remove is, was, am, are, being, existing, and other such ambiguous forms of “to be”.

For a theist, this means that one cannot say “God exists”, and must correct it with a more precise phrasing instead of the word exists.  It also prevents identity from use, so no “whatever is, is” and no “it is impossible for a thing to both be and not be at the same time and in the same respect”.  Also, no “cogito ergo sum”.

is it possible to present your metaphysical outlook in E-prime?
