He's participating in two threads over at PhysOrg Forums.

It looks like he first started this thread:

Does The Buzsaw Hypothesis Violate Thermodynamics?

Then he began participating in this thread:

Hear ye, hear ye, religious folks..., Why religion and science shouldn't mix

I have this vague guilty feeling, like we gave them an STD.

I just scanned through the second thread. He's already been called retarded, a buffoon and an idiot, but it doesn't seem to faze him, he just keeps going.

I think he's found a company more receptive to his needs. Did you see the guy who asserted that rocks were intelligent because they resonated with magical crystal energies?

What a magnificent repository of nonsense you discovered.

Yeah, he's handling himself quite politely. Which isn't a terrible surprise... his behavior here rarely went past pompous, on the great offensiveness scale.

But he's also raring right out the gate with several of his old EvC pet topics... thermodynamics and biblical prophecy, most prominently.

Bulletproof Buz - he's like a honda engine
So you're basically saying that Buz was polite, therefore his opposition weren't the ones acting asshats?

I don't get it.:)

One can be polite while still being belligerent and disingenuous. The fact that he's politely not rising to insults says nothing about his basic MO, which seems not to have changed a bit in his new stomping grounds.

Re: Bulletproof Buz - he's like a honda engine
Yup, he stubbornly sticks to his beliefs. Is it such a big deal though? Why must the creo apologize and sacrifice a stool to the EvCgod anyway? Isn't that also a bit pompous/self-righteous?

Personally, I couldn't give a female's bollock, a long as he isn't a hate-filled lunatic like those guys with the pickets. If Buz wants to never believe in gravity, all we can do is give him his superman cape and hope he doesn't jump off a cliff.

If I were asking Buzsaw to burn an offering of his feces(?) at a temple to the mighty EvCgod's power,(???) then yes. That would certainly be pompous.

But back in realityland, I was only snarking on him. And that's pretty much the appropriate response to someone who "stubbornly sticks to his beliefs," even in the face of facts that directly contradict those beliefs.

I think he mentioned his plans in the exit message he posted, and I guess I just filed it away in the back of my mind. Today I checked over there and there he was!

sometimes i wonder whether some of the yec's that leave us for other forums, complaining how biased and mean we are, ever stop and think, "gee, actually, they were pretty nice come to think of it."
