Re: Glad you agree now
What happens if we put the question of whether your model is itself valid, through your little model?

Is your model derived from "validated objective empirical evidence"?

If it isn't then, by its own criteria, it fails to be anything other than an opinion.

Re: Glad you agree now
Are you suggesting that RAZ's little model is something more than an opinion despite not meeting his own criteria for qualifying as such?

Special pleading....?

Re: Glad you agree now
All sorts of things are internally self consistent but still largely worthless. And the idea that a useful theory of something as complex as knowledge can be expressed in a 4 step flow chart is evidently simplistic drivel.
