Eli, I think I was pretty explicit about this in my email, via
prefacing the appropriate parts of my comments with phrases like "I
think..." and "I believe...."

Then I think you will be surprised ;-)

As I said above, I think I was pretty clear about this distinction in my email.

Mathematics places very specific constraints on FAI. Whether there is
a way to make highly intelligent, provably Friendly AI within these
constraints remains unknown; and we have strongly different intuitions
in this regard.

Right back atcha, my friend ;-)
