    This is an emotional area for James R, and for good reason. Science is like his form of religion, and if you go against it in any way well just watch out. If he can't censor you he will more than likely assault you with ad homs and mocking insults about being stupid and gullible which ofcourse we all know isn't proper sci forums protocol. But it's his god damn group and science is the gospel and well that's just the way it's gonna be whether anyone likes it or not.

    It's such a pity to have a brain and yet never use it. That's what I find most frustrating. You can lead a horse to water but ...

    Right, James. That's why you make your points based on your scientific expertise and let it stand on it's own merit for others to decide freely for themselves. Done.

    The beauty of it is that readers will most likely take away or extrapolate something of importance from all perspectives. The rational, scrutiny or scientific points as well as the unknown or loopholes yet to be understood or verified. It makes one think. period.

    You are too kind, I think. The evidence suggests MR has a brain, but chooses to use it to attack rationality. I am sure it is a political or psychological choice he has made.

    In my view it is just anti-rational trolling, to annoy scientists. No better than Fat Freddy.

    Well, I'll say that when you called JamesR a 'Bullshit liar,' it was an eye-roll moment for me.

    If that means anything.

    well, everyone has a point of view, don't they? maybe your expertise is not in reading people's intentions. no one is perfect.

    More like he finds the idea of UFO's and the paranormal fascinating foremost. You can't read that? again, no one is perfect.

    btw, one can tell by reading between the very obvious lines that fat freddy believed in his topic. it wasn't for the purpose to just 'attack' rationality. but the likes of fat freddy gives you an opportunity to prove what is rational or irrational and to everyone that may learn a thing or two because of the debate, so why hate? lol.

    The core aspect about the rational and logic is there is no competition because it's foundational, so there is no need to be insecure, if that is the point one is trying to make. Of course, logic can be misapplied because not all variables or info is known, depending on the subject matter.

    The principles of logic, however, are very hard to misapply without deliberate and wilful ignorance.

    the principles of logic are equally futile and inconclusive when you don't have all the facts but believe you do and jump to conclusions based on omission/lack of facts. that's a two-way street: misapplied logic to which you can neither verify existing or non-existing but conclude to be non-existing instead of the logical neutral position of which can't be verified for or against. you make the same mistake as believers (a type of faith in the unknown) but the type of logical fallacy you trump as more realistic is founded on which you have no knowledge of either but decide conclusive by actual ignorance. logic: if I can't perceive it or do not have the ability to prove, therefore it doesn't exist. that's actually illogical, even if based on a conceptual idea that is dreamed up. unless that idea can be proven to be false, it's still a possibility.

    btw, logic can be misapplied without deliberate intent. heck, that was just pure logic but I believe not definitively but that there may be a possibility based on unexplained clues there is more than our current understanding of reality.

    Because I don't accept your analysis of either of these people.

    What they both lack is any sense of posting in good faith. Anyone who has dealt with them has found they duck and weave, prevaricating, changing their stories, flip-flopping between being serious and having a laugh when things get tough for them, and so on.

    I have no trouble discussing things with people who argue their corner in good faith. But I've been around on forums long enough to smell someone who is disingenuous - or shit-stirring, like Dumbest. I have no time at all for people like that, personally.

    And spare me your psychobabble about "insecurity". I am just a grumpy old git, like a lot of men my age.

    Posting video, photo, and eyewitness evidence is an attack on rationality? Since when?
