Re: Hamiltonian definition of energy always equals net zero
And why does every crank think that they are Einstein toiling away examining patents or ...Galileo challenging the establishment.

When someone lacks even a basic understanding about an area of expertise in which they are expounding and lacks even the simplest grasp on the idea of logic, and everybody they share their ideas with thinks they're a kook, what other choice do they have?

It has always struck me as odd that fundies devote so much time and effort into trying to find a naturalistic explanation for their mythical flood, while looking for magical explanations for things that actually happened. -- Dr. Adequate

...creationists have a great way to detect fraud and it doesn't take 8 or 40 years or even a scientific degree to spot the fraud--'if it disagrees with the bible then it is wrong'.... -- archaeologist

Re: Is net zero energy universe "not even wrong?"
Not only do you know nothing about the topic, you don't even know what an ad hominem is. Hint: it's not synonymous with insult, and using it so just makes you look like a pretentious twit. (Another hint, this post does not contain any ad hominems.)

Re: Is net zero energy universe "not even wrong?"
Wow. You can't even read your own sources. That's Buz level wrong.

Abusive ad hominem (also called personal abuse or personal attacks) usually involves insulting or belittling one's opponent in order to attack his claim or invalidate his argument...

My emphasis.

Calling you a twit for the sole purpose of alerting others to your twithood with no intent to attack your claim or invalidate your argument is not ad hominem, as the source you quote makes clear. But thanks for trying. If at first you don't succeed, at least do something to amuse your audience.

Re: Is net zero energy universe "not even wrong?"
Personal abuse and name-calling is always an ad hom attack. Just so you know.

I have explained to you that this is not the case. The only authority you quoted explained that this is not the case. I can only conclude that you are ineducable. Whether this is due to handicap, sloth or stubbornness I will not venture to guess. However, it does establish to my satisfaction the futility of continued communication with you, in case observing your interactions with others here over the last 3 months was not sufficient.
