    Klobuchar and Warren are two very different candidates. So why those two? I think that the "equipment" the editorial board most had in mind when endorsing those two is their genitals....

    That is false. If I tell you I have 10 fingers, that is obviously evidence that I have 10 fingers, and you should lower the probability you assign to the hypothesis that I have a different number, if...

    He already made a big mistake in the response. Maybe he'll take it back and apologize, but the damage is done - not by Warren, but by himself.

    If I say that the day before yesterday, I went to see a movie, every person reading this understands it. In particular, they (you) understand the "I". If you do not (but you do), then you should...

    Actually, the word 'power' has more than one use, and mine is pretty usual. Of course, I have the power to type on my keyboard, and generally humans have the power to move small objects. On the other...

    I did not blow it. I explained why that would be irrelevant, and how your challenges were not tenable. There are such things as optical illusions, which are well known. Sound illusions can happen...

    It is not that feelings reveal what is going on. Rather, it is that I have conclusive evidence about what I feel, about the lack of an external threat, and also about the lack of internal compulsory...

    They're too simple and don't behave as if they did, so I'd say either they do not have a mind or they have one that is too simple to say they act of their own accord. However, I'm in error, then the...
