Do you need perfect information to notice if someone or something's reliable? All you need is enough to be convinced yourself.
That s precisely what i said, but i also assumed that any claim made without any kind of empirical proof can be dismissed just as easily.

Have faith in me then, at least i can be proven quite reliably as existing and im not more complex than the models of the systems i m supposed to be explaining.
Delusions are dangerous to me and society in general, i have a right to be worried by people making claims that if not tagged as religious would be considered as signs of clinical insanity
This is a good question. Mainly because it leads to the more important question: Why would anyone choose a boring life? Boring from their perspective of course. If you find something interesting, then why not do it? Why is it so engrained in our minds that it needs to be safe? It's weird. If you have only one ride, why not make it as interesting as you can? Don't burn the candle at the both ends, why not, I already know how it looks like when you burn only the other end...
I don't see how a boring life filled with boring things you hate doing would even be worth living. Actually I think that suicide should be embraced to point out that our life really is ours. There should be suicide parties, a bit like funerals but so that the suicider is still alive and will say goodbye to everyone and have a huge party with all of his money, and then kill himself. Or not, if he doesn't want to. I think this would make us appreciate life a lot more.
Well, the point was that death is too big a taboo and ruins the living if you take it too seriously. We are here and we should enjoy ourselves. This, of course, doesn't mean that my life is a constant party. I don't enjoy too much partying. I enjoy many things people consider boring. Like reading and thinking.
