    Your topic tells me you are anti-scientific.. Otherwise you would feel no need to start this topic!! You're being contradictory IMO!?

    It's always good to question your basic axioms. Sadly the very basis of empiricism is something we have found no way to verify.

    IMO it's verified within yourself.....

    Einstein is classed as highly intelligent.... But who's qualified enough to confirm this?

    Not anti-scientific, I just think there are different ways of interpreting scientific ideas. I quoted Max Planck earlier, and he's one of the all-time great physicists

    Coal Sure, we're all wrong. Makes complete sense.

    Seems to work though. Strong correlation between empiricism and results. Doesn't definitely mean causation of course, but I'm open to something which works better or demonstrates causation.

    'I think...therefore I am....I think.'
    ;)

    Personally I have never met anyone that I consider an 'extreme' skeptic.
