Debunking Skepticism – Fake Nous

“A mathematician, a scientist, an engineer, and a philosopher are sitting in a cafe in a foreign country. Outside the window, they see a black sheep in a field by itself.

The engineer says, ‘Well, what do you know? It looks like the sheep around here are black!’

The scientist gives him a skeptical look and says, ‘Well, at least some of them are.’

The mathematician looks at the first two and says, ‘Well, at least one of them is.’

Then the philosopher looks doubtfully at the other three and says, ‘Well, at least on one side.'”

Liked the story, but I thought his argument against skepticism failed to take issues like the problem of induction seriously.
