Re: Kaichos Man in the Information Thread
One comment from a friend I had lunch with yesterday: "It sounds like he can maintain understanding of only a single sentence at a time."
I've noticed this sometimes at work. When the subject you are trying to explain is not really considered important people often politely switch off until you finish talking (and then only retain the first and last thing you say).
Very much like listening to long winded directions when you are lost and ask someone in the street.
Then they launch into what they want to talk about.
Or some people do try to listen but can't quite 'get' your meaning (especially true when explaining something completely out side their frame of reference) but pick up on a few familiar words or phrases and put them together in a way that is meaningful to them (where the confirmation bias creeps in).
Often this leaves me with the thought "how the hell did s/he get that from what I said?".
People are funny old things.

Great Debate (Straggler & Chuck77 Only)
I can already see where this is going to go:
Chuck77 says that his evidence is that he 'knows' his god is real.
This is exactly the same argument as Iano's argument that he 'knows' his god is real and that 'knowing' over rides all other evidence.
I predict that this 'knowing' will become a stumbling point right off the bat.

Re: Faith-Based Drudgery
Straggler's mistake I think is to have let it go straight to discussing God.
But it will end up there what ever happens, I think, because of the righteous power of 'knowing'.
Arguing the definition of evidence won't affect 'knowing' (at least it did not in all of my conversations with Iano) one little bit.

Re: ICANT
When you say 'holding his own' what exactly do you mean?
Buzz has along history of refusing to post any evidence T all and then claiming that he has in other threads. He is also admirably ignorant of anything scientific with superb inability to learn.
How exactly are these honest Christian traits helping him to hold his own?
If you mean a stoic inability to stop posting in science forum, well then I concede the point.
Otherwise, I've no idea what you mean.

Re: ICANT
Yep, he definitely does deserve "something"
That sounds like what the sinister guys says in those there movies:
"you'll get exactly what you deserve".

Re: Superluminal molybdenum fins breach my stomach walls
MY answer to that is satan himself.
So, the ideas we have about supernatural entities come from a supernatural entity?
How does that make sense?
