If this forum is morphing into a sewer of ravings from a paranoid psycho, then I guess it's not the place for me.

Over the years I've come here to learn new stuff involving science. Other aspects of human activities were always part of this forum too, but lately it seems like a couple posters are doing nothing but throwing shit pies and splattering everything. Not much science learning happening here any more.

This was the best science discussion forum I have ever encountered after 25 years on the WWW and more years before that on the "internet". It has been well designed and managed by Percy and we have had hundreds of brilliant, inciteful, and articulate participants from around the planet and a myriad of different backgrounds.

There has always been bullshit too, but my BS Meter has gone past EXTREME several times now and is all set to explode!

One important characteristic of a theory is that is has survived repeated attempts to falsify it. Contrary to your understanding, all available evidence confirms it. --Subbie

If evolution is shown to be false, it will be at the hands of things that are true, not made up. --percy

The reason that we have the scientific method is because common sense isn't reliable. -- Taq

it's best if we allow them if only as a way of truly gauging the threat to rationality.

Oh, I'm not saying disallow them, but if that's all that's happening here I don't have time for it.
