IAN: Hara Ra, I realize that "April 1" and
other such jokes are the best thing you've
got going against holism, but I am pleased
that you venture to make a logical argument!

OK, so show us a prediction about any thing
A that is made free from relation to not-A.
When you have shown that to us, you'll have
succeeded in supporting your case with a
single item of evidence, which is the
next step in logical inquiry.

If you cannot find an example of a predic-
tion about A made free from relation to
not-A, then where is the evidence that
atomism helps us make predictions?
