Re: B12 supplement questions

Good questions! We have a section in nutrients of concern on B-12, it's fairly comprehensive... and probably more info than you ever wanted to know on B-12: http://philosophicalvegan.com/wiki/index.php/Nutrients_of_Concern#B12 As to the absorption thing, it's a matter of diminishing returns. If you ...

Re: Seeking advice: WFPB and supplements on a vegan diet

I don't understand why you can't say "Oh, sorry I was mistaken about that, I see your point on risk assessment" or whatever. Like just ONE thing. Believe me, I feel exactly the same. Your behaviour seems as much ridiculous to me as mine seems to you. The point of you denying and even after being pr...

Re: Artificial Intelligence

Also, after it's solved once it can become better at solving similar problems. That's clearly not true for genetic algorithms. It's true for neural networks sometimes. Yes, that's what I meant. I may have misread you. You can ignore Carnap if you want, he's just a broken record at this point. Why d...

Re: Is Honey Ethical?

Except that wasn't the argument, nor is this a refutation of anything I argued. It was principally an appeal to futility, it didn't merit much refutation, and yet I did anyway to the claims I could find. Once again you do little more than spite out personal attacks while systematically avoiding any...

Re: Artificial Intelligence

Why? The number of neurons in the brain is not strongly correlated with intelligence. Not saying it makes them conscious or sentient, but that (for lack of other information) it indicates the possibility. Like saying a device has X number of logic gates. There's a certain number that under that it ...

Re: The Absolute Worst Video I Have Ever Seen On Youtube

I don't know now. Is nuclear cheaper than the fossil fuels? Fossil fuels, without paying for emissions, are cheaper. Wind I'm not sure of, electricity production can be cheaper than all of the additional costs from nuclear (like insurance) but that's less clear with storage. Offshore wind is intere...

Re: Artificial Intelligence

It looks like somebody else already moved Carnap's post for derailing the thread with the same claims he always makes. But I'll just say that it looks like Teo already debunked it pretty well. Similarly goes for fishes. Fish have very simple brains, making consciousness very unlikely. Too much gener...

At 4:20 did you mean coal and gas or oil?

Your speech has gotten much less sarcastic, have you been working on that?

Re: Beyond Burger Vs. Impossible Burger

I hope they start selling the impossible burger in stores. The FAQ says later "this year" but I don't know when it was written:
