Re: For dpardo
I agree with Nosy that it would be interesting to see you give WILLOWTREE advice, since when anyone else tries they are simply called Godsenseless frauds.

The biggest problem in discussion with WILLOWTREE is that he doesn't seem to know what evidence is, or how you critically examine a problem using evidence. (The other possibility is that he acts ignorant of such things since they tend to work against his statements).

Most of his arguments are arguments from authority, often with little to no understanding of how the authority came to their conclusion.

He seems to think that science proceeds by authorities refuting one another directly. By example, in the LLM thread he doesn't see the value in measuring the LLM on a map, and seems to believe that until someone produces expert testimony specifically stating "Smyth's measurements were incorrect", Smyth numbers are "irrefutable and proven", as WILLOWTREE likes to say.

None of this is meant to be insulting - it is just my assessment of his logic. I've tried discussing these issues with WILLOWTREE directly, particularly in the PROOF OF GOD thread. I was met with hostility.

Perhaps you'll have better luck, if you are up to the challenge.
