Have to agree with Berny, even I as a layperson on the subject, did recognize Dan’s lack of examples. Dan’s response was much too lengthly than it needed to be; I agree with Berny’s opinion Dan did this with the intention of propping himself up. I really didn’t see Berny’s response to Dan as a “meltdown”, I think it was justified that litle bit of harshness.
As for the original piece, it really made me think about these current issues in a less emotional way. Both Berny & Alan conveyed stunning ideas that clearly illustrated the differences with objective truth and subjectivism.
