Thank you for the response. Though checking your comment history you still preferred Catholics as recently as mid April (citing them as a new possible group to join).

If I were to join any phyg, it'd be the Dominicans. SingInst might be my second choice, but you can't join them, you can only join the Rationalist Conspiracy these days. And I've already left SingInst's Journeyman circle or whatever, there's no going back after that. But I'm damn glad I was a Visiting Fellow for two years.

This post is for sacrificing my credibility!

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. Don't worry, there won't be future posts like this, so you don't have to delete my LessWrong account, and anyway I could make another, and another.

But since you've dared to read this far:

Credibility. Should you maximize it, or minimize it? Have I made an error?


Don't be shallow, don't just consider the obvious points. Consider that I've thought about this for many, many hours, and that you don't have any privileged information. Whence our disagreement, if one exists?
