Response to DavidDvorkin (Reply #2)

12. I don't think it's an either:or proposition, but rather a call to awareness about what we are

doing. As I mentioned below, there's a mistake that is similar to thinking that 2 X 2 = 4 is identical with 1111 of anything.

We should not treat any words as though they are identical with what words, by their very nature, ONLY refer to. That's a rather superstitious supposition if you think about it.
