Re: ~ The Philosophy of a New Emerging Asset Class ~

Initially I was drawn to the economic aspect of a more secure currency. Now I see the entire arena of cryptocurrency as FREEDOM. FREEDOM in a Democracy type of way. Freedom FROM centureship. There is an observable cult like tendency to you crypto fanboys, standing around saying "democratic decentra...

the science ain't settled, meaning it's premature to hobble industry
That reasoning also means it is absurdly reckless to keep pumping 30 + gigatonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere every year and just hoping it all works out fine.

Re: Do you need a PhD to be a scientist?

There are various ways to be an amateur scientist. They don't exactly fit the blokes with big foreheads and white coats paradigm on tv, but they do some stuff. Many of them plot trajectories of small objects in space (but AI has gotta be much faster than they can be). You might get a light in the sk...

Re: If everyone does it, it's ok for us to do it too?

My psychiatrist was scared shitless of me. In retrospect (I quit seeing him over ten years ago) he was constantly fearing for his physical safety when I was in his office. That sounds like a an interesting story all of it's own. Just out of interest, the overcooked reviews that you got for your boo...

Re: Important Announcement about a new paper on ethics

Wade is a friend. He is a philosopher and a programmer. He has volunteered to web-host my writings. No money has ever changed hands between us. He had to pay for that kindle book before he could express his views about it, since kindle does not allow a publication to charge zero. So he bought the b...

Re: PhilX wouldn't know science if it teabagged him

It's possible Phil is as you describe ("a certain type of people"), but mebbe he's just not particularly moved by the 'authority of the majority', has looked at the 'solid science' and found it lacking. Is he really capable of doing that? I don't mean that in my usual sense when discussing that man...

Re: Important Announcement about a new paper on ethics

What has the above to do with Philosophy?? One might suggest it is has something to do with ethics - unlike your works . You have used somebody as a shill* - you just provided another link to Wade Harvey's web hosting there. shill noun an accomplice of a confidence trickster or swindler who poses a...

Flash: You seriously claiming British bigotry against Muslims was not the reason for Brexit? The entire campaign focused on banning Muslims from Britain.

Re: Important Announcement about a new paper on ethics

Wade Harvey is not an employee of mine. He is not on my payroll. OK.... he didn't disclose his relationship to you in his Amazon review. You are sort of implying there is no relationship. But you aren't stating that fact. So what is Wade Harvey's relationship with you, and and why are neither of yo...

Good plug! It's also nice to see my thread being used for purposes other than just a space for me to be a sanctimonious dick just to annoy a pompous one.

Re: How Come Elizabeth Holmes is not in Prison?

Boy you have trouble processing information. No, the case would not be difficult. It's a huge fraud case with thousands of relevant documents. Those aren't easy when you do them properly. Yes, experts would be needed, but experts are not by any means a big deal in litigation. Especially when dealin...
