Unfalsifiable, unscientific, and uninteresting.

But that's just my opinion. Well, the last one is just my opinion at least.
Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don't care, I'm still free
You can't take the sky from me
Take me out to the black
Tell them I ain't coming back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can't take the sky from me

When I respond with "OK" don't take it personally. I'm simply being appropriately dismissive.

Could you expand?

We have good reasons to believe it is false, however, there is nothing ruling it out for sure.

He's basically saying it's true you can only know your mind and mental events, but nothing more than that. He doesn't accept the claim that his mind is the only one in existence, only that his mind is the only thing in existence he can claim to know.

Okay, thanks for clarifying.
