You make me happy when skies are gray...


I guess it is the fact that you have a math background which makes it so easy to communicate with you. As far as I am concerned, you have hit the nail right on the head both with regard to what I am trying to say and Harv's reaction to it. I get the very strong impression that Harv is just ignorant of the concept of Abstract reasoning. If I am wrong I appologize but I can think of no other reason for his complaints.

To Harv:

>>>You are talking about non-scientific observables which is a basis that science has long ago stepped far beyond.> There are very few observables studied in science that are made by the pure senses.>Many, if not most observables today, are made with electron microscopes, radio telescopes, particle accelerators, etc. These devices are so theory-laden intertwined with the observables that under your approach we cannot consider them observables.>If that is the case, then under your approach we are not even dealing with the issues of modern science. We are dealing with issues that may have confronted science prior to Galileo when he invented the telescope.
