I've read it twice. Both times from you.
I still think it's easier for religionists to believe in contact with "alien
species" than it is for scientists to believe it, because unlike religionists,
scientists require evidence.

Useless hypotheses, etc.:
 consciousness, phlogiston, philosophy, vitalism, mind, free will, qualia,
analog computing, cultural relativism, GAC, Cyc, Eliza, cryonics, individual
uniqueness, ego, human values, scientific relinquishment, malevolent AI,
non-sensory experience, SETI

We move into a better future in proportion as the scientific method
accurately identifies incorrect thinking.
