Harv,

I am apparently just talking over your head. You don't seem to pay any attention to what I say at all. If I didn't know better, I would suspect I am talking to some response program someone has written.

>>>The means by which we 'know' information is via mechanisms that evolved for almost 4 billion years. These mechanisms [that evolved] provided us with sensory and analytical abilities in our ability to perceive outside phenomena. Once we are born, these mechanisms allow us to engage the outside (e.g., our parents) whereby we learn more about the world. However, without those evolutionary mechanisms we would have absolutely no contact with the outside world. >Wouldn't then be true that by your own model your own model is not reliable?
Why should I then accept it as true?
