I see a problem with the agreement of philosophers. Since philosophy has become distinct from physics, it tends to attract those who still think that this is a matter of debate. In particular, what if philosophers from different countries disagree by that date?

It might be useful to have a separate market whose resolution is bound only to the opinions of physicists.
