    Ladyman has shit to say on science, this come from "Understanding Philosophy of Science" by Ladyman. I'm going to post the dialogues in the book. If anyone wants it I can send it to you.

    The dialogues evolve throughout and maintain a neutral tone.



    I'll post the rest later on. I figured it would be OK to post science-related here.

    I am convinced Ladyman is Ru Paul, Ru Paul should definitely narrate this.

    It'll be like Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman, except with RuPaul and debating.
    This idea is fucking genius.
