Hello Harvey,

>>>”Skepticism is generally an epistemological concern.”>”If ontology is entirely rejected as a legitimate exercise, then our theories of the world become anti-realist.”>”Scientists ask 'why' questions all the time… if we are not allowed to ask 'why' questions then science such as evolution would come to a screeching halt.”>”How does Gödel's theorem make set theory dependent on mathematics itself?”>“… If (the inability to truly know an objective thing) were entirely true, then nothing is objective and everything is fully subjective.”>”Mathematical axioms and theorems are used as 'premises' and the theorems that result are 'conclusions'. Does that make mathematics an anthropomorphic exercise? If so, then what *isn't* an anthropomorphic exercise?” >”I cannot find any realism in your realism.”
