In a NYT article, by way of Boing Boing, columnist Errol Morris, asks for your opinion on a statement by David Deutsch about the asteroid threat to Earth:
…we live in an era of unprecedented safety: the twenty-first century is the first ever moment when we have known how to defend ourselves from such impacts.
It’s interesting, in that the survey asks not only for your opinion, but your level of confidence in that opinion.
I’ve given my opinion, and I’ll talk about it here, in a follow-on essay, in a couple of days. That will give you time to vote, and it will separate this entry from all possibility of spoilers.
