To take your conclusion,

"determinism could be true without our ability to assert it without incoherence."

Come on, km, I would say you're smarter than this, but since you're posting philosophical questions at thecry, maybe not.

asdkdsfidenjfwoepfjweeeee could be true without our ability to assert it with coherence. In the absence of, for lack of a better word, coherence, nothing can be, for lack of a better word, "true". Don't play semantic games and then believe you've undermined the universe. The planets continue to revolve around the sun no matter how astutely you question whether the word "revolve" really captures what they do. "True" and "coherent" pose the same problem. Best of luck on your voyage through philosophy. I'll be waiting for you at the end of the bar with a draft beer and a copy of the works of David Hume when you emerge.
