Howdy Harv,

>>>”My opinion is that skepticism needs a more clear framework. By moving into areas of philosophy the 'skeptic' (as this word is generally used as a skeptic of pseudoscience and false views of science) is on weak footing. Skepticism of this kind works best when it stays within a scientific framework but stumbles badly when it tries to address metaphysical issues which are addressed by philosophy. The reason is that when you challenge philosophy you must challenge it on philosophical ground.”>” I want to know if Pythagorean's theorem is the reason that nature is mathematical in a particular respect.”
