I do agree with you that educated people don't put their intellect to use on a daily basis. Most people are just not that dedicated when it comes to their talents.

I disagree with you on this. I think some people have opinions that are not well thought out. I don't think that makes them unworthy of our attention. Why not point out the error in their thinking? What ever happened to using your talents to inform people of their illogical statements. Any person that takes the time to put forth an opinion should be given considerate treatment (unless their opinions are full of insults).

Do you mean that it is all repetitive mumbo jumbo?

" What I have proved is that any collection of internally consistent concepts must contain a subset which can be interpreted as the fundamental concepts of physics (that tautology I spoke of). Thus it is that we do have a foundation about which it is possible to agree! And, surprise, surprise, it is not far at all from what the scientists tell us is "true". "

I thought the nature of science was so that nothing could be proven, only disproven.

OK OK - Point taken
