Re: Free Will: Praying for Atheists

Of course, there isn't universal agreement on these questions and society nevertheless functions pretty well.

Re: Free Will: Praying for Atheists

The only thing that matters is how you impact others.

Negative impact on others: bad.
Positive impact on others: good.

I can't find counterexamples, unless you consider your own philosophical...

Re: Law Profs on the Law Prof President

Now I'm a flaming liberal, but I'm going to push back Hillary Clinton as SC judge.

Re: Science Saturday: Dreaming of an Artificial Intelligence

I'm surprised by how well received this diavlog was. I found it to be very pretentious and going nowhere!

Re: The Subprime Solution

I think a good point to be made is that no one was forced into this stuff. This was their 'natural' economic behavior in this set of conditions, I guess irrational from the eagle-eye view.

Re: The Subprime Solution

Re: Hot World, Cold Cash

Personally, I'm against the assertion that you must throw out information with limited certainty. I think one needs to have a more Bayesian attitude and be willing to continuously adjust.
