FOM: Some thoughts on "Realism" JoeShipman at
Fri Jun 16 00:04:37 EDT 2000

The problem with using Goldbach's conjecture as an example of a possibly 
indeterminate statement is that it is hard to imagine how it could be both 
false and unknowable, because a counterexample can be finitely verified.  
This asymmetry obscures the relationship between "unknowable" and 
"indeterminate" that I was trying to illustrate.
