Hello Mark!

Yes, I suppose I could have looked up the word epistemology
again. What sent me off was being reminded of a certain
professor of Educ. 370 ( Educational Psychology ) who liked
using five syllable words to make the perfectly obvious
hopelessly arcane. I could say he was blowing smoke, but that
doesn't sound very educational does it?

In any case, sorry for the irrelevancy.

Best wishes
