David McF.--You bastard! I think you have a point here! But what I meant by
"circular and closed like mathematical axioms" was that in mathematics different
sets of axioms can be valid, unlike in philosophy, where only the axioms of
objectivism are valid. Do you really think either of my critics were
contextually right. But the way I worded it, I did not make myself clear. In
this context, what do you think is fair?
