I find discussion with smart people, like Jonathan or Cary very enjoyable. The only thing one needs to make them change their minds is an irrefutable argument. It's not personal, it's all about the arguments.

He's a mathematician by education. So am I. On the quantum level, world is black and white. The shades of gray are an illusion, created by statistics. Statistics is responsible for many illusions. Here, I have to direct you to the latest Jonathan's post on his blog and statistics which states that every key in a unique index identifies 2 records, which is rather irreconcilable with the uniqueness of the index.
