Re: Is science only for the scientists?

You're supposed to be bright. Figure it out. I can't be all that clever. I waste a lot more time on your bullshit than I would otherwise. Especially when, like now, you are boring me and I have stuff I ought to do. In this instance though, there are no examples to display. I know what the ad homine...

Re: Is science only for the scientists?

FDP said: "You used to be some sort of above averagely bright young man if the story you tell us is true. But now you are the guy who starts all the shittest conversations on the internet, and thinks that the motto in this phrase is profound..." Just one of the guys, same as you (but I don't do ad ...

Re: Exposing Liberal Hypocrisy and Conservative Close-Mindedness

Hola DP. how have you been?

The infrequently glorious FPD is in largely good health, although some of the stupidity on this site that shitwits are trying to flog as philosophy is causing my anus to bleed. Which hurts a little.

Re: Is science only for the scientists?

Aside from FDP's very poor attempt at humor, it's true that I did help out a chemistry college professor with his project. He was at an intermediate stage where he tried to synthesize a compound (and failed twice). I suggested trying a different reaction to make the compound. He directed me to the ...

Re: Exposing Liberal Hypocrisy and Conservative Close-Mindedness

Apparently there is a movement of folks leaving the Dems. They briefly tell their stories, here. And it’s called, #WalkAway :lol: Dems who woke up. https://www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALWalkAwayCampaign/ You can't be stupid enough not to realise that was too good to be true right? Anyone with any...

Re: Is science only for the scientists?

It seems you need a certain personality to be a scientist. Have you ever met any? I know loads of scientists and they are pretty much just average folks. Have I ever met any??? Frequently in college and I personally helped one out. 🇺🇲PhilX🇺🇲 You personally helped a scientist out you say? I assume t...

A conversation between field voles:

- Be careful up there. There could be monsters!
- Don't worry! I've been up there a million times. Nothing ever happens!
Under the circumstances, perhaps you should avoid making your point with parables.

Re: Global Warming: A historical perspective

You've missed my basic point so how do I say this nicely? I don't give a rat's ass about greenhouse gases. Why? Because it's mainly theoretical based on indirect evidence. The only evidence I'll consider legitimate is sea level which has only risen about 8 inches over the past 130 years which is di...

Re: Exposing Liberal Hypocrisy and Conservative Close-Mindedness

This discussion is a waste of time. If you want to have productive conversations with people whos viewpoints differ from yours, which I seem to recall was the point, most of the poeople posting here are not the correct interlocutors. Walker is a fool who is not capable, and the people being dragged ...

Re: Creationism

There's something lacking in your understanding of conditional statements, or else there's something lacking in your seeing "if" and "then". Re-read the following to yourself: But if someone could ever definitively prove evolution, (You chose to say I was not right, because no one could ever prove ...

Re: Global Warming: A historical perspective

I've been thinking about with all the talk about global warming, what would constitute a smoking gun? What would make for definite evidence? It's NOT melting ice and glaciers from Greenland and Antarctica. It's not flooding such as occurred over 100 years ago in China that killed over 900,000 peopl...

Re: Exposing Liberal Hypocrisy and Conservative Close-Mindedness

Obama, who selected Jones to be a Czar, made some good points, too. For instance he said, if you like your plan you can keep your plan, and if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor, period. That was a good point, however those who saw through it, saw it was not a waste of breath. Instead, i...

Re: Creationism

Ok then. All of my original points stand then. The theory is inherently relgious because it definitely posits untestable supernatural entities as causes for observable phenomena, and valid scientific method can never accomodate untestable causation. Right! But if someone could ever definitively pro...
