|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.
Drat! Missed that.
We're eating crow.
But they're raven mad.
Should we carrion with this pun cascade or rook to move it to the Bathroom wall?
Keep it here so we can all see how choughed we are with ourselves.
It is fun to dip into the various threads to watch cluelessness at work in the hands of the confident exponent. - Soapy Sam (so say we all)
