In his tirade against materialists, Barry pontificates:
Johnson most certainly did NOT refute Berkeley as a matter of pure logic. Boswell was correct. It is impossible to refute Berkeley’s idealism, just as it is impossible to refute Descartes’ demon, or the existence of the Matrix, or that at this moment I am a Boltzman Brain. The internal logic of these systems is seamless and flawless.

That's funny.  It seems like just yesterday that Barry was  citing Johnson's "refutation" of Berkeley as a valid argument. Until a Darwinist (gasp!) materialist (gasp!) set him straight, that is.
