You also said the only red thing is red light. So by extension, the color "burnt umber" is an illusion as is "harvest gold" and "fuchsia"

That goddam paint store owes me a refund.

Can you name anyone who sees red strawberies in the picture? (People with a colour defect, either in their eye-brain system or their computer screen don't count!)

EDIT: I remember one guy on the original Dawkins site said that he had a damaged optic nerve, that made everything look tinted in that eye.
