Who can be bothered with this nonsense?
I remember reading something Eric Drexler wrote were he proudly claimed that no one has ever disproved his ideas on molecular nanotechnology and that this means that his ideas are feasible. Don’t be fooled by this argument.
The main reason that no scientist has disproved him is that none of us can be bothered to do so. We have much better things to do with our time like write papers or research proposals or spend time with friends and family. Anyone who has ever had to prepare a TEM specimen intuitively knows that Drexler’s ideas are nonsense and doesn’t have to go through the ordeal of actually addressing them in detail.
However, I promise to do so one of these days. Ugh…
