    Nassim Taleb is one of my favorite statisticians.

    Ah. I haven’t read any of his work directly, but I intend to; he sounds interesting, and thought-provoking.

    @Will S.

    The thing is given our sinful flesh. God designed it to endure and thrive under a certain quantity of hardship.

    If we are to be in the garden of Eden again without a glorified sinless body. I think we may end up degenerating and becoming like Bonobos.

    But God is perfect, and will not let anything happen contrary to His plan; and we know His plan is to transform our flesh, so that we will be in renewed, resurrection bodies, without spot or blemish, and without any taint of sin whatsoever.

    We know this from Scripture.

    If you don’t, you need to read your New Testament more thoroughly.

    @Will S.

    Of course I am engaging in a hypothetical. But before the immatezing of the eschaton. Putting our current corruptible bodies into the garden of Eden will result in degeneration.

    Look at how abundance and luxury ensures decadence as a result of the creation of eden-like scenarios for the upper class.

    Nassim Taleb has discovered a future growth industry…common sense. Before big govt bailout culture existed, most successful businesses were antifragile. Whoodathunk?
