  • Depends on how you define river. I voted yes though. As based on the current use of the word river refers to specific streams of water not the specific water that runs through them at any given moment. So it's more of a location.

  • Yes, you can step into the same river twice. While the water flowing in the river changes constantly, the river itself never changes.

  • You can step into the river in the same place twice, but it won't ever be the same river, the water and the world around it would change.

  • No, because one minute later it will have changed. The name of the river didn't change, but the river changed.

    • Because it's a Greek philosophical question, Heraclitus.

    • So it's more like if you replace every board on a boat when does it become a new boat?

    • Exactly Heraclitus' said “No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river and he's not the same man.”

  • The same river? Yes.
    The same water? Not unless it never moves or gets rained in. (Meaning no. lol)
