There is a difference between "looking at something from a different
perspective," as you say, and "providing evidence for the validity of one
of those perspectives," which is what I requested.
So far as I can tell, Gale is hiding behind solipsistic shelters, and is
unwilling to adopt a standard of evidence for dealing with such matters,
preferring to play epistemological goddess with semantic nits. She
needn't bother, since I've long since posted my assumptions (i.e., the
physical world exists, other humans with working minds exist, etc.) and
have invited the postmodernists and mystics to do likewise. Clearly,
since she bothers to type out her thoughts, she too believes that there
is a world beyond her skull.
There's life after freshman philosophy, Gale. :)
