    The question of the century, 21st Century philosophers have used various forms of understanding, including observational, rational and computational thinking, yet failing to reach a consensus.

    Previously, an avid pro-wetter, my dialogues with those of the other side had enlightened me, the scientific argument of solubility was the final trigger of my transformation to the conclusion, that water is dry. Since accepting this mentality, I have spent some time researching other evidences, and now engage in critical discourse defending the fact that water is dry.

    So what's your stance, is H20 wet or dry?

    maybe it is because, if something is wet it is covered in water, and water is covered in other water molecules, so it must be wet????
    but then it kinda isnt because it is itself and using wet as a property doesnt add any meaning to the statement, if you say 'water is wet', so i would then argue that it isnt and its a pointless question (A-Level RS knowledge is kicking in )

    Water is a bunch of water molecules sloshing around each other. Something is wet when it has absorbed water or is covered in water. Water molecules surround other water molecules so using my definition of wet, which seems reasonable, then water is wet; but a water molecule is not wet.

    The assertion that all liquids are present to wetten solids is inadequate and can be disproved.

    Nope because etymologically, the hypothetical glass can be defined as either without conflict, wet and dry however cannot harmoniously be attributed to a single entity. Wetness is a description of our experience of water; what happens to us when we come into contact with water in such a way that it impinges on our state of being. We, or our possessions, 'get wet'.

    There are insoluble solids that cannot be subject to wetting. Moreover the primary purpose of water biologically is Cell life. Water is essential for cells to function properly: it enters into the composition of the cells. Of course there are various other functions for other scientific disciplines but wetting has never proven to be one as far as I'm aware.

    jks

    but regardless of what you come up with water is wet so stop over complicating the matter and getting all philosophical about it.

    save it for stuff like - is god real, is the universe infinite, am I actually gonna get a life?

    A rather rushed, and overly philosophised hypothesis, which can be deemed balderdash given the numerous contradictions, which violate fundamental metaphysics of states and duality.

    I'm seeing a common factor within pro-wet thinkers, where their stance isn't evidenced rather the result of cultural, and dogmas etched mentally during early development.

    Precisely water isn't wet. Since water is not saturated, water is the saturating element.
