Do you have a more detailed explanation of your "useless hypothesis"
somewhere? I see that you are adding more and more things to the list.
However, I find your list to be too simplistic to understand. Without
background information, I'm not sure why some things are on the list.
Phogiston is obvious. Consciousness, philosophy and mind, I think mean
different things to different people. Why is analog computing on there?
What does that mean? Do you simply mean that digital is better, and can
accomplish everything analog so that we don't need it? What about
relativism? Do you list it, because like communism, it doesn't seem to
work? What about ELIZA? Isn't that the stupid little program that
back? What outrageous claims have been made for it that you would list
as useless? As an amusing entertainment program, it does need much
Just curious about your list. You should have a web page to explain
list in more detail. It would be interesting. If you do have a web
you should include it in your sig.
