Vincent Darrell replied to Shankar's discussion 'Giving up on Atheism - Atheism promotes promiscuity and is bad for society'

Vincent Darrell replied to Sophie's discussion 'What is the most interesting thing you know?'
"I loved the Zuni Indian reference you had in your reply. Don't mind if I use that in my conversations with people :) I really enjoyed the rest of your reply as well, not just because of the ideas therein contained, but also because you write…"

Vincent Darrell replied to Sophie's discussion 'What is the most interesting thing you know?'
"Thanks for bringing all of that to my attention. I haven't had the time to look at Hoffman's work, but it does at first glance strike me as overstating the importance of our perception in understanding the world. Let me clarify. I do…"

"Interesting! I vaguely recall hearing something like this. Is there a link where I might read up on this a little bit? Supraluminal anything is endlessly fascinating!"

Vincent Darrell replied to Sophie's discussion 'What is the most interesting thing you know?'
"But if our knowledge (say, a theory) of something got replaced tomorrow by something that takes into account new evidence, and so explains everything the old theory explains but more and with greater accuracy then wouldn't you say that the 2nd…"
