Hi Harv,

We have no serious disagreement on any of this; only quibbles.

>>>I disagree. The problem isn't that fundamentalists assign '1' to some belief. The problem is that they assign '1' to too wide a range of beliefs.>[Support of pragmatism with more pragmatism] requires support ad infinitum. We are finite creatures and therefore we cannot approach this infinite justification for our 'less than one' beliefs. Eventually we must agree that we simply have a 'belief of one' that allows us to have 'less than one' kind of beliefs.>>I don't wish to pick on fundamentalists simply because all humans err in this regard. We all have misjudgements as to what is true and what is certain.
