Or Han Solo's ride through an asteroid field, saying "Never tell me the odds."
Wow. The Giants, who started the regular season badly, who only got in to the playoffs as a wild card, won -- defeating the til-then-unbeaten New England Patriots.
It gives me hope that the fluke statistical correlation I discussed yesterday could hold for another year.
Knowledge is warranted belief -- it is the body of belief that we build up because, while living in this world, we've developed good reasons for believing it. What we know, then, is what works -- and it is, necessarily, what has worked for us, each of us individually, as a first approximation.
