Hey Paul,

>>>Now I think we are quibbling and this teeny tiny number is all that separates us. I refuse to say that I know for sure that I can't walk through closed doors. But I refuse to say it only on principle. Practically speaking, of course I agree with you that I can't really walk through closed doors.H: Pragmaticism is acceptable once you believe in pragmaticism, but what do you qualify that belief with (more pragmaticism)? P: Sure, why not? Seriously.>H: Issues such as these are where consistency and applying agreed to logical principles (e.g., what science afterall is) are problematic. P: I don't get what you mean here, Harv. Do you mean that fundamentalists are opposed to using methods of science to support their beliefs? If so, I agree that that is a problem.
