"We know little about the effect of diet on health. That’s why so much is written about it". (And he links to a short paper by John Ioannidis, "Implausible results in human nutrition research".)
I don't know the answer, but my guess is nothing good. ("Post-empirical science": sheesh.)
Easy: solve the other half.
Yes, indeed. A whole lot of faulty thinking and argument could be substantially fixed if people would just follow the advice given here.
(Milton Friedman, of course, knew this very well.)
His goodness is of course in part intellectual, even Jewish. He is a man of the book. In the Money Seminar, and anywhere else he's standing, he asks always, persistently "How do you know?" It's a terrifying question, since most of the time we can't say how we know, because we don't know. The question feels like an assault if you're not ready for it. But of course Milton is seriously curious, looking for enlightenment, ready to take this or that side in the schule (the school of Hillel might claim that inflation is a wage-price spiral; the school of Friedman claims on the contrary that inflation is everywhere and always a monetary phenomenon). I am told [How do you know, Deirdre?] that when people these days say to him how good he looks, considering he is 90, he sometimes replies sharply, "How do you know? Are you an expert in gerontology?"
You know about the trillions and trillions of stars that are out there? Scientists just found some more.
"In fact, there are so many different things to feast your eyes on that you might want to just save the image and look at it whenever you’re bored."
Yet another possible resolution to the Fermi Paradox.
What if technology were to become so advanced that it no longer sends out waves or particles across space, or even so advanced that it cannot be recognized, or distinguished from the natural world?
Sounds like a heck of a high school science project.
Ethan writes that we're pretty darn sure.
Unusual discussion: it starts with the finding that people tend to go number 2 more easily at home and ends with an argument that free will doesn't exist.
