How about:

Truth-Maker: Every contingent truth had, or has, or will have a truth-maker.

?

Can the truthmaker be the principle of contradiction, though not as specifying one side of the contradiction as necessarily true or false, but only saying that it is a necessary truth that "either my coat will be burned up or not burned up"?

IOW, I'm wondering if we can just tinker with Aristotle's "sea-battle" argument here and apply it to truthmakers.

James,

For starters, LNC is a proposition. A proposition cannot be a truth-maker.

Neither of you gentlemen understand the problem.
