Answering an almost rhetorical "do you think" question requires
sufficient evidence? I thought it was a request for an opinion
myself. Opinions may be supported by evidence but "sufficient"
evidence to have an opinion is not generally called for.
Especially not on a question that can in no way have sufficient
evidence until we are beyond the possibility of self-destruction.
