Re: Eliezer in 20 Years

Version 2.0 will have the functionality to accuse you of "magical thinking" and then proceed to explain that there are really these many, many, many invisible universes created every nano-second, but...

In 20 years, Eliezer will announce to the public that he has invented the first artificial intelligence that marks the arrival of the singularity. On its first test run, it will answer any question...

Re: Free Will

The issue of free will seems kind of tangential to me. I have my opinions about it, but however you answer it, it doesn't seem to have a strong implication on the correctness of the agnostic...

Re: So Bob is a Tao-Ish, Big Deal !

That's the puzzle with Bob. He goes out of the way to use the word "purpose" (especially the phrase "some larger purpose") and then denies that he means anything that the word means.

Defense of Athiesm of Agnosticism

Re: Toward Mideast Peace

"I'm sure you're going to be a regular superstar here."

This doesn't strike anyone else as a kind of sarcastic jab at bhtv's anti-Semitic Israel-hating audience?

Re: The Meta Debate

The book needs a lot more defenders on this point. (The term Israel Lobby is really almost self-defining.)

To the point of controversy, the lobby is defined by its words and ideas, not by who's in...

Re: Cagematch? Really?

Re: Science Saturday: What's Wrong with String Theory

Who says the titles should have anything to do with the content, anyway? At least it wasn't wacky or cute... it was just false.
