I think Ferengi had a list of logical fallacies, which he mounted on a dartboard and chose one at random. You can get yours at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_fallacies.

Hi James,

I don't know why these few posts of ferengi's were overlooked by Amazon when he was banned back then, 3 months before he was banned on Jan 20, 2010.

Still running and hiding from the question you're too scared to answer, eh Haynes? Too bad it's not going to work. Here it is again:

"So basically, every sighting of a UFO, dragon, ghost, Superman, sharks with lasers, or any other outrageous claim made by someone actually DID happen because, after all, they observed it happening, right?"

Creationists are too dumb to understand why everyone's laughing at them... which makes them even funnier!

Brian,
Be nice. The creationists are so insecure in their faith and manhood that they need to try to force science to support their theology. When science doesn't change its nature to accommodate them, they have to try to make up for their... *ahem* 'short comings' by being publicly belligerent and ignorant on these fora.

They are to be pitied. But never to be allowed near science education.

EMvC: But never to be allowed near science education.

I agree with that but they are not insecure in their faith. Quite the opposite. They are so convinced that they are right (as I and probably you are) that they feel their duty is to save the *unrighteous* from a fate worse than death - whatever they may be. Of course sensible folk would regard anything less than death, such as life after death or whatever as *worse than death*.

So both you and Brian are correct in your own ways, except the bit about their being pitied. Pitted perhaps, but... lol

Something I have never been able to understand.

Creationists/IDers appear to cite a "failed" scientific series of experiments as evidence on their side. ("Failed" is what they say. They don't understand each experiment in a series gives you data that you or another scientist may use later. That an experiment can not give you an expected answer, but it always gives you data.) To wit, life, from inanimate sources, has not been created in a lab. They crow and say effectively science has disproved science.

But at the same time, they deny all the other scientific body of evidence.

Just puzzles me. So illogical.

Actual scientists disagree with you. And guess what? They're the ones who get to decide.
>Don't even bother. I've pointed out a number of times where the evidence and deductive reasoning can be found. Posters like andthehorseirodeinontoo? just keep repeating the same falsehoods, urged on by either intentional ignorance or a desire to lie.

Perhaps they ought to be stoned, Phillip.

Well, a few joints would certainly get the corn cob out of their pi gu.

But the corn cob puts a smile on their faces and they'd miss it too much.

Just a question. Not concern trolling, honest!

I am new to these amazon fora. I was interested in dialogue about actual science. Are there any threads in this forum where people actually talk about science and don't have to spend their entire time defending it against people who do not understand science?

Does anything in science exist they don't feel threatens them or is part of an atheistic plot? Nothing that doesn't incite them to jihad?

Last I heard atheists were only about 15% of the US population. These [perjorative]s make them seem awfully active falsifying data, peer reviewing and validating lies, developing techniques to prove lies, oh, and publishing and teaching lies.

this is the best you're gonna get for discussing actual science, i'm afraid. the trick is to listen to the ones who know science, and ignore the ones who make it clear that they don't. :)

this is the most insightful thing i've seen you type here. also the most ironic. :)

Re magnolia, 10-4 8:06 AM: Rev. Otter has it about right. There are a number of threads from which you may choose to posit any particular question, and you should try to pick the one which appears to be most apt for your purpose. Unfortunately, many threads are inhabited by people who do not understand science, or suppose that religious ideas can trump scientific ones -- which is NEVER true: science relies on observation which (in principle) anyone can make.

So just out of curiosity...is the plural of "forum" actually "fora"? I always though it was "forums".

Yes, that would be a boulder approach.

Mohamed: an avenue of finding something to fill their emptiness.

We're all full of emptiness, Mohamed. Some of our posts, especially. :-)
