Quote# 40869We know enough about the nature of both the earth and the sun to eliminate as hypothetical and irrational the idea that the earth should stop spinning on its axis or orbiting the sun tonight.
Problem is, you have exactly zero foundation for assuming that the ‘nature’ of the earth and sun will not change 5 seconds from now.
If I held any doubt about my consideration that the sun will rise tomorrow morning - if I considered an alternative like the sun transforming into a penguin overnight - I might dedicate some thought to the alternatives.
Problem is, you borrow your confidence from my worldview, as you have zero foundation for it in yours.
