And dare I ask what the math hating people on this list should be doing?

Biting our tongues?, because although we can appreciate sound reasoning,  
good ideas and the odd convincing argument, if we cannot 'do the math' we  
have no right to hold or express an opinion?

Not that I disparage those with the skills to make good use of all those  
wonderful mathematical formulas out there, I just wonder if you're getting  
a little one sided here, in what is after all a transhumanist mailing  
list, not an engineering working group crunching the numbers a get a woman  
on mars. :-)
