You mean you see very little science when science is relevant? I had not noticed that. More the trouble is that I see science where it is not relevant.

Don't worry Kennethamy, much like platorepublic, I regard both of you on equal footing for the incredible amount of insight and relevancy you put into each and every post I have read from both of you. Honestly, I think the forum would be at a severe loss if even one of you choose to leave.


Thank you. But, I wasn't worried.

No. Perhaps I just don't visit the threads where science should be relevant. Whatever - I didn't come here for science anyway - all I need to do for that is to just look away from my computer monitor.

I think that it is fairly easy to believe science is relevant when it is not. Scientists (and philosophers, too) like to draw philosophical conclusions from science, and conversely. But most often such inferences are invalid. Case in point is drawing philosophical conclusions about free will from QM.
