Or are you just trying to see if anyone can defeat the epistemic humility "trump card"?

Partly (I'm surprised by how confident people generally seem to be, but that could just be a misinterpretation of their position), but also on my inside view the empirical claim is not true and I wanted to see if there were convincing arguments for it.

But maybe it's enough to have reasons for putting non-trivial weight on the empirical claim to be able to answer the other questions meaningfully?

Yeah, I'd be interested in your answers anyway.

Crossposted from the AI Alignment Forum. May contain more technical jargon than usual.

This is an experiment in having an Open Thread dedicated to AI Alignment discussion, hopefully enabling researchers and upcoming researchers to ask small questions they are confused about, share very early stage ideas and have lower-key discussions.
