Re: Ethics as Science

To Robin's credit, I see where his point is coming from. There's an odd
kind of "limit of thought" given by the very facts you will actually
believe over the course of your own lifetime. Certainly, if I COULD
somehow absolutely provide you will all of the facts which you will
actually believe, you would have no capacity to learn anything more than
that. While a process like this wouldn't necessarily tell you "the
truth," it would necessarily be the best you could get.

I still challenge that a process like this is impossible, a priori,
especially if I'm set to have an infinite number of thoughts about ethics.
