I was thinking about the Range of Positions I had posted earlier, and realized it would work much better as a series of non-interdependent questions. By answering each of these questions, we can quantify our positions on this topic in such a way as to prevent both mindreading (having one's beliefs mistakenly assumed) and position-dancing (changing one's unspoken premises as needed to support one's point).

Here are the questions I have come up with so far. Feel free to post your answers as a comment, or put them elsewhere and post a link as a comment.

My answers are here.
