Science also relies on logic. The consistent negative emotional appeals (dreaming up, speculation a fad.) are not swaying me.Ultimately, these are questions we need to start giving over to science rather than philosophy, so we can actually gain some understanding of humanity which is progressing much faster due to things like MRI than it ever did due to some philosopher dreaming up some speculation of one sort or another.
The next time an MRI lobbies for pension and tenure using my tax dollars, I suppose I'll start to come around. I work in technology by the way, and part of that is high reliability products, which are involved in a wide variety of medical devices. Like democrats always say politically, we can do both.
