I'll bet any amount you want, since if the Mythical Monstrous Machine wins, I
won't have to pay (we'll all be toast), and if my claims (as clarified in the
message that began this thread) are correct, you'll have to pay up big time.

Useless hypotheses, etc.:
 consciousness, phlogiston, philosophy, vitalism, mind, free will, qualia,
analog computing, cultural relativism, GAC, Cyc, Eliza, cryonics, individual
uniqueness, ego

     Everything that can happen has already happened, not just once,
     but an infinite number of times, and will continue to do so forever.
     (Everything that can happen = more than anyone can imagine.)

We won't move into a better future until we debunk religiosity, the most
regressive force now operating in society.
