Excellent Alexander!
People think they can just throw in a Phiosophical point at any time and noone will notice. There's a big difference between the Science of Philosophy and the Science of Physics and Math. We're not going to philosophize as to whether 2 + 2 = 4 or not. Cleche arguments with no basis in fact. You hear it all time. Like this one, my favorite, "Look at all the galaxies, with all the suns and all the planets, there has be life somewhere else" What? To me that's the same as saying, "Look at all the galaxies, with all the suns and all the planets, the must be bagles in China" which is probably true but unrelated. All that means to me is the numbers are big, that's all! Anyway, just wanted to agree. It's very frustrating to argue Science with a Philosopher, they can make up their answeres, you can't. Clear skies.
That's it;
