Shut up and think!
Does activating the ‘human spirit’ deactivate the human brain, somehow? Because it seems that the word ‘impossible’ is being seriously abused, here, to the degree that it negates the message that I presume was intended — the actual message is nonsensical, and I am willing to extend enough credit to the poster to take for granted that wasn’t what he was trying to say.
I am constantly amazed at how poor Eliezer’s arguments can become without his cadre of loyal fans becoming uncomfortable enough speak against them, but this is an especially horrifying example. Still, Hanson had some intelligent things to say, and he said them! He definitely pulls the weight over at OB.
