Anyone interested at doing a one-on-one with Dunsapy?
Dunsapy Theory, still a "Proposed New Topic".

I don't see releasing this to the masses as being a good thing.

Any nice evolution type person out there want to do a one-on-one "Great Debate" on this topic?

Christian Culture Remix
I'd like to find a new person to debate/discuss the Christian cultural zeitgeist. (Jar was my old debate partner, and taught me a lot! :) )

Anyone interested in a "Great Debate" with AlphaOmegakid on "Is Nature God?" topic?
Is Nature God? PNT

As is, the topic's message 1 is a terminal mess.

As I see it, this topic's going either "rejected", "Free for All", or "Great Debate". As per the Adminnemooses position of "no go", "I don't care", or "it's some other individuals problem to deal with".

It really helps moderators figure out if a topic is disintegrating because of general misbehavior versus someone in particular if the originally non-misbehaving members kept it that way. When everyone is prickly and argumentative and off-topic and personal then it's just too difficult to tell. We have neither infinite time to untie the Gordian knot, nor the wisdom of Solomon.

There used to be a comedian who presented his ideas for a better world, and one of them was to arm everyone on the highway with little rubber dart guns. Every time you see a driver doing something stupid, you fire a little dart at his car. When a state trooper sees someone driving down the highway with a bunch of darts all over his car he pulls him over for being an idiot.

Please make it easy to tell you apart from the idiots. Source

Any individual member wish to go at it with Homunculus?
He has the topic Time interpretation theory sitting in the PNT forum. As I see it, the only way it's going anywhere is as a one-on-one "Great Debate".

This should NOT be a two way exchange of stupidity.

If interested, reply to this message. If not interested, DON'T reply to this message.

Re: Any individual member wish to go at it with Homunculus?
I'd be willing to debate on the evidence of age, but not on a concept that includes made up factors that can be arbitrarily tailored to fit the evidence and end up proving nothing.

"Autumnal factor" ??? "Astral Position" ??? "garret" ???

http://www.garrett.com/

or

http://www.garrett.edu/

It's not a unit that I know of.

Enjoy

Attention RAZD
I have proposed what should be a very concise "Great Debate" topic, between you and me.

Accept or decline?

Moose

Not interested, sorry. My faith is personal, and everyone's worldview affects their day to day affairs.

Anyone want to 1 on 1 with SocialEvolution at "The Mud Theory"?
The Mud Theory

This would be a disaster area as an open to all topic.

It would amount to an admin/SocialEvolution "Great Debate", to get the proposed topic into a better form (or something like that).

Any member want to do a FRIENDLY* little chat with SocialEvolution?

Adminnemooseus

*not Dr. Adequate

I'd be willing to take a stab it at, if for no other reason to see if he (?) is what he claims to be or is simply another stealth creo.


Ridicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions. Ideas must be distinct before reason can act upon them; and no man ever had a distinct idea of the trinity. It is the mere Abracadabra of the mountebanks calling themselves the priests of Jesus. -- Thomas Jefferson

For we know that our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness. We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus -- and non-believers. -- Barack Obama

Re: Anyone want to 1 on 1 with SocialEvolution at "The Mud Theory"?
I'd already written a bit of reply in anticipation of his topic getting approval. I'd have to make a few changes because I added a line about him having more evidence then he'd know what to do with as soon a RAZD had a moment to spare. I'm not too good a sourcing yet and I don't know how to stop a Gish Gallop. But it wouldn't be bad practice if he's sincere.

And this "FRIENDLY" you speak of, does that mean I have to serve him a Rooty-Tooty-Fresh-and-Frooty* breakfast at any time of day? I'm otherwise unfamiliar with the term.

*For those non-New Englanders: a pancake based breakfast served with ones choise of several different fresh fruit toppings by an establishment named "FRIENDLY'S"

AbE: Could it be started in conjunction with peanut gallery that might make helpful suggestions along with snide comments about how sucky the thread is going? I've not have much luck getting meaningful responses lately… Buz, ICANT.

Edited by lyx2no, : Peanut gallery.

I'm going to plug lyx2no into this one. Please be kind and gentle.

Maybe we can bring subbie in later (substitute off the bench?).

My opinion - The peanut gallery later, maybe.
