7. I'll believe this when I meet a cat with the mind-reading abilities of a dog.

 

It seems to me that intelligent entities are almost a necessary result of a long-running, competitive, adaptive process.


A "cat" is just a "tac" spelled backwords, and a cat can be as dull as a tac.

Sure, maybe cats can read the minds of mice, but am I supposed to be impressed by that? A "mouse" is just a "esuom" spelled backwards. How hard can the mind of an esuom be to read?



(Thanks for the pdf, btw. Takes me forever to download a video, and I was a bit annoyed when it cut off in mid-sentence.)
