Eugene - your grasp of logic isn't just out to lunch, it's gone
off on a five-year safari.

I have nothing to add to what David Rudiak has just posted
concerning your notion of reliability. As for your evidence, I
see nothing to challenge my earlier conclusion that it's a
scattering of oddities propping up a mountain of guesswork.

You're right about one thing - I have absolutely no idea what
this theory of perception is that you're supposedly advocating,
which I suspect probably makes two of us. The details of this
mysterious theory appear to change by the minute. Apparently it
owes nothing to Cognitivism, it does not depend on
"operationalisms" (by which I assume you mean operationalized
measurements), and relies on proof found at the bottom of
mineshafts.

Indeed I think a hole in the ground is the right place for it.
But that's just my opinion.
