You seem to bounce around in a manner that is not tightly focussed and controlled.

A bit like a puppy.

Hope that helps.


The above ontological example models the zero premise to BB theory. It does so by applying the relative uniformity assumption that the alleged zero event eventually ontologically progressed from the compressed alleged sub-microscopic chaos to bloom/expand into all of the present observable order, more than it models the Biblical record evidence for the existence of Jehovah, the maximal Biblical god designer.

-Attributed to Dawn Bertot Message 286

Does a query (thats a question Stile) that uses this physical reality, to look for an answer to its existence and properties become theoretical, considering its deductive conclusions are based against objective verifiable realities.

I used to worry that the government was stealing my thoughts. Now my attitude is that they should have 'em.

Just to provide some additional detail. Those emanations do not come from the government, but from the planet Lovetron. See link below.

Of course if you are bold enough to take off your protective head gear, you might have your thoughts stolen by evil government dispatched aliens. I think it's worth the risk.

Well, to explain.

You keep starting threads, or interrupting existing threads, to raise creationist arguments.

I myself am happy to just slap down creationist stupidity in itself. But many people on this forum think that you believe in these creationist arguments, that you're putting forward these arguments because you actually favor them, and that when you pretend to be neutral you are in fact a committed creationist trolling us. And they are angry because they think that when you are pretending to be neutral, and "just asking questions", they suspect that you are a creationist ideologue, and that therefore you're insincere.

For myself, I think that you are sincere, and in any case I don't care. But a lot of posters on this forum think that you're insincere, and that you're a creationist insincerely pretending to be a genuine seeker after facts.

Well, he would.

I think CoolBeans might well be a neutral person who is trying to find out what is true. In that case, he would naturally jump from one creationist argument to the other; he is perfectly right to put evolution to the most stringent test. At least he hasn't said "why are there still monkeys", he's not a total idiot.

Please stop posting PRATTS

Hi CoolBeans

It's not as if your're not liked here; it's just that you're irritating when you post creationist PRATT's.

Following that you're normally not around to participate in your own threads.

So, before you start a thread, do some research. For example, go through the threads on this forum to see if your subject has been discussed before.

Also go to very reliable websites such as TalkOrigins to see whether a claim has been refuted before.

http://www.talkorigins.org/indexcc/list.html

Claims neatly ordered according to subject on that website. Discussed extensively with references to scientific sources.

Look at the following quote from John Debyshire at http://www.nationalreview.com/...-metaphysic/john-derbyshire.
He explains very nicely why lots of people don’t like creationists:

quote:
I’ll also say that I write the following with some reluctance. It’s a wearying business, arguing with Creationists. Basically, it is a game of Whack-a-Mole. They make an argument, you whack it down. They make a second, you whack it down. They make a third, you whack it down. So they make the first argument again. This is why most biologists just can’t be bothered with Creationism at all, even for the fun of it. It isn’t actually any fun. Creationists just chase you round in circles. It’s boring.
This is very true for any of the natural sciences. It's just not worth debunking their claims. The'll keep repeating untruth after untruth. Every time. About everything.

Furthermore, I, for one, am here to learn from people much, much more knowledgeable than I can ever wish to be. Repeating a PRATT puts a stop to this learning process.

Just do some basic searching on Google before posting a PRATT. You'll be liked after that. Easy.

I'm still lurking, and coolbeans reminds me a lot of myself roughly 3 years ago. I recall mostly digging through the archives to get information, although there was one time when I was confused by a gish-gallop(spamming of arguments)and I did make a PRATT topic, although Rahvin explained the tactic in a PM.

Maybe coolbeans can explain what he wants to find out? And perhaps English isn't his first language, which can be a deterrent for making long posts.

Re: Please stop posting PRATTS
Im here to learn to. I thought this was a good place to talk to experts. Talk Origins is a really good website but I would like for Isaak to continue to work on web page. It has been down for 7 years and it would be nice for them to continue.

I have no idea why I'm spending my time on a subject as absurd as this... -.-

You so cavalierly proclaim that it's all a waste of time, because tinfoil hats are "absurd". To me, this smacks of unscientific arrogance. It is as if you know that the government isn't controlling our thoughts. Let's keep an objective mindset here.

...

Just sayin'.
