Me too!
  • Ether exists.
  • Phlogiston exists.
  • Maggots on rotting food are spontaneously generated.
  • The earth is flat.
  • It is impossible to write structured Perl.
  • Perl is only useful for text-processing.
  • ESP is possible.
  • Crop circles must be of extraterrestrial origin.
  • Perl is a write-once language.
  • The tooth fairy took your old tooth and left you some money.
  • Computers can do anything.
  • It is possible to trisect any angle using only compass and straightedge.
  • The Internet has created a New Economy which is not bound by the rules of the old economy.
We happen to know (I hope) all of them are flat-out wrong. And each has been stated in the past as true. For some of them there is very little empirical evidence; for the rest, there is none.

The only question is: into which category are you putting AI? That people have been wrong is no argument, either way. So why repeat the point that people have incorrectly claimed that possible things are impossible? People have also correctly claimed that impossible things are impossible!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
