Oh please let this be true! As I don't know which would be funnier, that he came back for a third time or came back as a woman.
Although to be honest I think GWT may be being tricksy but doubt the goaturder would be able to hide his 'light'.
Please tell me that you haven't intentionally read Satyr's drivel, I would think it was beneath the dignity of rational people. It's also my understanding that he and Apaosha run that forum.
Read it and engaged with pretty much most of it as the goaturder has been here twice, the first time was with his opus which we had much fun discussing, well I did but he appeared to get quite upset at times. The best part was when he painted himself into a corner and had to leave voluntarily, a first among phil-forums I think. He then returned, which was double-funny given what he'd said previously, and this time brought his herd with him, Apaosha, et al, apparently they have field trips of some kind, how sweet eh! This time tho' he and they came to Rick's notice so they all got banned, shame as you've gotta admit he can turn a funny insult at times and to be honest I think his stuff is rational if you believe the premises and he has, unlike many, at least read some philosophy and he is a proper functioning gnu to boot. From the looks of it tho' the mods have cleared everything past a certain date so all the jollies have been lost to posterity.
Well, if you know the law of averages, you see that many people share the same views. For example, Hitler might have been a vegetarian, but does that make vegetarians Jew-killers? Satyr might have a few similar philosophies to me, but does that mean we have the same views about other things? Satyr may be a racist, but does that make me a racist by sharing his non-race related views? If your friend Sarah likes potato chips, does that mean everyone who eats potato chips is secretly Sarah, who is the Joker in disguise, who is really Pinkie Pie in disguise, who is really Obama in disguise, Obama is 5 letters, 5+5=pentagram, pentagram = 55 gram = 155 grams in Doritos = Mountain Dew = illuminati confirmed??
This is a form of attitude characterized by an egocentric worldview. One becomes preoccupied with paranoia, and avoiding social judgement. So much so they might even abandon what they believe in, if society suddenly deems it unacceptable, or if society demonizes some other person who shares their beliefs.
If Kim Jong Un is an athiest, are all atheists dictators? If Kim Jong Un cuts his hair, should we all avoid barber shops? If we eat a bagel, does that make us holey? Illuminati is illuminati is illuminati confirmed? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5b5MNAbVKQ
