It must be hard to squeeze that in between all the window cleaning ;)

I'm happy to have a Hex-free chat about Chalmers. HH's views about DC are well enough documented.
Awww, well please point out just 1 well documented thing that he says.

I think I've PLENTY of times proved that you have no deeper understanding of anything and I have superior understanding! You like most other people here can only do parrot speeches!
I don't doubt that you think that. If only that had some value beyond what it is.

As if I'd ever used that phrase or said anything about that. In that discussion, I simply asked you this: "You'd say there aren't elementary particles in the (current) standard model?"

Should we declare this thread officially dead?

It seems we are not allowed to have a civilised chat about Chalmers.

No, you don't have the mental aptitude to understand what the correct answer is.
