Topic: Serious Discussion / 21 trillion dollar black hole

I suggest a proletariat revolt of our bourgeoisie oppressors. Destroy the system and rebuild it from scratch with the power in the hands of the people.

It’s also worth noting that a placebo is not medicine. Striving for a placebo effect is like trying to win fourth place at the Paralympics.

Generally, when people find out they’re being spied on they call the cops. They don’t kill themselves, and only a crazy person would expect something like that to happen.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Marijuana Legalization

Kids are going to try anything to get high, even with the consequences. Why make it easy for them to get? With consequences, there will be many who will not try pot. If we can save a few, why not?

Exactly. Why send them to a black market dealer? A street dealer won’t card them. Send them to a pharmacist, instead.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Logic Riddle

There are three clay containers. One of them has only pennies from the year 2005 in it, one has only pennies from the year 1975 in it, and the third has an equal number of each. They are labeled “2005,” “1975” and “MIXED”. However, you know that the labels have been switched, so that NONE of the container is marked correctly. Can you properly label the containers without looking in them, and ONLY pulling ONE coin out from ONE container?

Answer carefully. If you get the answer wrong, you’re a shitty humorless mod. Also you sniff butts and have trouble urinating in public. And you have a bizarre fascination with The Village People. You’re probably adopted, too, not that there’s anything wrong with that. But there is something wrong with your fetish for ladies’ underwear. You sick pervert…

Topic: Serious Discussion / Global Warming

Originally posted by AaronB:

Then there’s the Climate-gate emails, which clearly describe conspiring to hide data and prevent skeptics from getting papers published (so they can carry on the claim that skeptics aren’t published in peer reviewed journals). The overall trend is lies, deception and fraud on the pro-anthropogenic global warming side.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Global Warming

From the link you posted:

Lord Oxburgh said the scientists at the research unit arrived at their conclusions ”honestly and sensibly”.

But the reviewers found that the scientists could have used better statistical methods in analysing some of their data, although it was unlikely to have made much difference to their results.

I would think the fact that the article is completely uncited speaks for itself. Also DarkBaron’s post addresses it, which I notice you didn’t attempt to refute in any meaningful way. Not unlike conspiracy theorists. “You’re just denying the truth, maaaaan.”

Aaron, could you please stop using Rockwell’s site to make points? All it does is make libertarians look like crazy conspiracy theorists. And, especially in this case, like morons that have no idea what we’re talking about.

Kudos for making a completely original thread that will most certainly result in people changing their opinions thanks to all the evidence for and against the concept.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Why do people seem to hate atheists so much?

Originally posted by Jantonaitis:

They can be used to promote wrong ideas as well as right ones.

Unbelievable. You know, this is why Neo atheists like dawkins are a big deal now but will be buried in history in 20 or 30 years. They all have the same, smug, we-know-best attitude that you’re doing a fine job of aping. And surprising as I’m sure it sounds, mocking people and carrying on as though you’re better than them, won’t persuade the theists, nor will it persuade too many of the fence-sitters about the utter rightness of atheism and the utter wrongness of theism. To put it bluntly, you’re just sucking up to your own ideological camp. Whereas you take somebody like TAO over here, and the Mormons will still be increasing membership in the same amount of time. Why? Because they study rhetoric and they use it well. The only people who appreciate the sort of mockery you’re espousing for ‘education’ are those to whom it’s not aimed at…or whom it doesn’t affect in some way.

So go ahead, be a pompous dick. You find anyone that buys that (who didn’t before), be sure to let me know.

Just out of curiosity, how is the idea that religious people can be wrong so offensive? Where was redem being a dick at all? If anything, he’s one of the least dickish people here, and far less of one than you. You’re simply taking every possible opportunity to bash Dawkins and “neo atheists”. Whatever the fuck that means. Yet you parade around and boast that you’re somehow superior to not only religious fundamentalists, but atheists as well. Because you’re “a deist.” If anything, you’re just as irrational and prejudiced as the fundamentalists you claim to hate, and you’d be doing yourself and everyone else a service by just shutting the fuck up every once in awhile.
