I'm doing what any other intelligent person does in reasoning about
the universe. Yes, it's possible that one of my assumptions is
incorrect, but the same is true about any other attempt to reason
about the universe. Let's debate the assumptions themselves rather
than repeat the tired Socratic cliche that nobody knows anything about
anything, ok?

(For the same reason, the "cheating at tictactoe" arguments are
fatally flawed.)
