Re: perspective, numbers, facts

Nah! Given you've responded pretty much as we have you're looking at around 200,000 by November by the time it works its way through. Could be less though given your population distribution and density.

Re: perspective, numbers, facts

So how's the seasonal flu analogy going HQ? 140,000 deaths and rising and if the US follows us, which seems likely, you'll be looking at anything from 220/300,000 by the time it starts to fall, although sadly, come winter, you may even catch a possible second wave before that.

Re: The sandpit of cat turds that is "morality-proper"

I am optimistic of what I proposed because this project, i.e. https://www.genome.gov/human-genome-project is already progressing and advancing together with other knowledge and technologies.

Re: Morality: The Fact/Opinion Distinction

But it wasn't Peter's definition? It doesn't matter. How you define a "fact" is immaterial if I just showed you a fact - ostensively. I've done that. If you agree that it's a particular example of a fact - then it should satisfy the definition you have for it. And if the ostensive example I've give...
