What pat on the back? There's literally nothing for me to change, I didn't respond to the typo or the reversed burden of proof anyway.

Seriously, it doesn't matter in the slightest, I don't think anyone even noticed.

What might matter is that you're suggesting we all should think a person who has used the word physicalism all of once in tens of thousands of posts over the best part of a decade is making assumptions and assertions about physicalism, when it's incredibly implausible. And what else might matter is that you've asserted both that:

a) Metaphysical assumptions are worthless, and
b) The metaphysical assumption that evolution can only be true if physicalism is true is worthwhile.
