    Straw man, as nothing about things having little or no value necessarily make them "wrong". Irrelevant or trivial maybe, but not necessarily wrong.

    Consider me:
    Total Posts 1,201

    Posts Per Day 3.50 ​
    And you:
    Total Posts 266

    Posts Per Day 12.89 ​

    You are kind of hard to miss with that post rate. And I have already told you that the "On the Fringe" section is perfect for those who wish to incessantly post nonsense which they cannot support with science. That is what it is there for. Here, I am providing counterpoint to your rather paranoid feedback. Or are you the only one allowed to comment on the forum in general?

    I was actually the only one to offer any useful answers in wynn's thread. You destroyed your own "evolution of religion" thread with your huge detour into Asperger's (which I warned you would happen, and you could have avoided by making your AS thread earlier). And maybe you should try to present some science in a science forum, i.e. Human Science.

    What threads? I do not remember starting any.

    Psychosis is a loss of contact with reality, which is indicative of the paranoia, delusion, and bias you display. I can demonstrate what I say is true, so I cannot be out of touch with reality.


    It is also fun to watch you dig your own hole, over and over again. That is what keeps me reading, and hence finding things that warrant reply.

    R&D is not easy is to do, nor is it easy to constructively critique. The creator has had time to think about their idea, while others may not have the time to ponder as long as needed to be constructive. Sometimes the only comments you may get is cynicism or personal attack. This keeps the thread going but has a tendency to divert it down a muddy path. The high road goes away.

    Personal attack often appears gray, instead of black and white, with R&D criticism. To the memorizers, the attacker is defending the traditions. By vanquishing the foe, one makes the science indoctrinates feel secure. This dynamic can also act as a smoke screen. It can also allow the caretakers of the traditions to hide personal motivations in the name of defending the traditions. Sometimes valid criticism is lost in the name of personal vendetta. The memorizers may assume this criticism has no basis.

    What is in the middle, between these two extremes (free style and blind obedience), are practical applications of acceptable science. This is where you use memory science but organized it in new ways to solve problems or challenge science.

    You are uselessly redefining "R&D". R&D always has a solid footing in what has already been proven to work, as R&D is a business practice with the specific aim of profit. What you are talking about is speculation without an demonstrable evidence, which shows no indication of being a good investment. Science already uses past knowledge to make new progress.

    Hacks often whine about criticism to obscure their complete lack of evidence. And when the intellectual dishonestly they employ to evade any question of evidence is mentioned, they inevitably cry foul about "personal attack". Yes, failure to see that an idea is without any demonstrate merit is a personal problem, but it is naively optimistic to expect a science forum to completely ignore such gross personal lapses.

    Scientists are not necessarily objective. It is the methodology of science, relying on consensus building by demonstration, that ensures the objectivity of the subject. Failure to provide demonstrable evidence is just a failure to do science. And wild speculation very much warrants scrutiny.

    this is one of the reasons for doubleblind experiments.
    the whole idea for testing in the first place.

    I believe I've reproached you before about posting articles other than writing thoughts and opinions yourself.

    I'm guessing more people will tend to ignore your posts if you continue as such.

    That was not even a reply to you, Futilitist, but if you really want my attention again, so be it.

    That quote is typical hack apologetics that completely ignores the need for evidence in science. It is not about "rationalism", it is about the scientific method.

    "Pot calls kettle black" you say?

    The joke was not obvious, especially when you followed it up with another lie. :bugeye:

    Also, I do not think that rpenner was being overly nosy. He tends to be a stickler and likes to verify the authenticity of quotes. He has said before that famous people often get misattributed as the source of quotes, especially when someone seeks to make an argument from authority and the perceived authority didn't say what that someone had in mind.

    In other words, citing yourself as an authority with your own opinion is just not acceptable.

    As far as the good cop/bad cop routine, I need to have a lot of information before I can reach a conclusion. He, on the other hand, is more gifted, and has more experience with science forums, than I do.

    Great, maybe I could start to trust my intuitive sense a little more then. I don't know. We'll see. :shrug:

    My last post was probably: http://www.sciforums.com/showthread...unku-Bolivia&p=2429833&viewfull=1#post2429833

    There was a recent forum softare upgrade that seems to have adversely affected search functions, which, with vBulletin, extends to the way a member's posts are displayed when clicking from that member's profile.

    And I am the owner and one of the administrators of thescienceforum.org.

    Apparently I'm still welcome here as a moderator as well since my privilages still seem intact

    Welcome back, SkinWalker.

    I'd like to get your views on the Neanderthal theory of autism. Here is a link to my former Asperger's thread:

    http://www.sciforums.com/showthread.php?132605-Asperger-s-Syndrome/page2

    Check out post#23. At the very bottom of the quoted section is a link to the full theory. What do you think of the theory from an anthropological perspective? We can discuss it on the thread. I look forward to your comments.

    PS---

    If I use the search engine of this site to look for posts by SkinWalker, I get this:

    The search shows that SkinWalker has only one single post on this site and it is the one he just made above! I think this is ironic.

    How did you find your old post, SkinWalker?
