|vjtorley: Are crows capable of reasoning about hidden causal agents? Five reasons for skepticism|
First. Crows can't reason because they "are unable to explain the basis of their judgments".
Second. Crows can't reason because they can't "justify their claims in the court of public opinion, and if they cannot do so, they are rightly ignored."
Third. Crows can't reason about causation because causation "is quite a sophisticated concept".
Fourth. Crows can't reason because vjtorley is confused about causation.
Fifth. One cannot help wondering what would happen if vjtorley actually took the time and effort to observe crows?
Sixth. Crows don't understand Caws and Effect.
