Alex,

Please, as a scientist I respect your abilities and knowledge very much but there is an aspect to the discussions on this forum which you just don't seem to comprehend. The issue revolves around the concept of belief itself. To believe something is to think that it is true.

To believe something without evidence is usually called religion. What Harv and others try to communicate to you is that some kind of belief without evidence underlies any concept including your position.

Their position can not be denied, it is a logical conclusion based on rational analysis. In fact it is exactly that problem which spurs my work. Essentially, you and I have no real arguments. My complaint with scientists is on a plane of no interest to you. Actually, I find that very sad as I suspect that you are the only one here with sufficient math background to actually follow my reasoning.

The problem is that you will not accept that the problem exists. I wish you would consider it because you might find the answer interesting.

As to your question, I "believe" in nothing!

Have fun, that's all there is anyway -- Dick
