Idcurious Yellow:*

idcurious has been silently banned, with some posts vanished. The UD regulars are clucking away how he's run off leaving their points unanswered. Just another day in that vacuum of intellect and integrity which is Uncommon Descent.

His life is archived here, mainly because it will annoy Clive.

Apologies to anyone who sat through it. Sorry too, Sparc, that IDC didn't get to reference the 1969 Nobel Prize. It was next on his list.

Hello again Onlookers. It's been a while since I de-lurked.

Yup-the few posts I've written in the last 3 1/2 days are still hidden. Cowards. They didn't have the decency to ban me publicly. I should demand my public banning NOW!

Can I again suggest a sock-withdrawal experiment. Being ignored is much less fun than being told you are wrong. It worked for a while at TT and, from personal experience, I know it works with children and dogs. Why not use Side-Wiki instead?

A good idea, and I like to read the posts on SideWiki, but my google email is through my school, which has blocked my access to making a profile so I can't post. I'll just have to live vicariously through the posts of others!

Your comment is awaiting moderation.

This is a test to see if I have been silently banned. My comment for this thread is as follows: How does this article support your premise that science should include the supernatural?

When you have the time, my original question regarding the hominid fossil record has not been answered.

But surely if Holocaust-denial were so obviously wrong, they'd be only too happy to debate it--with a bunch of tendentious morons who will never ever back off from their prejudices.

After all, we should be wanting to do nothing but churn through a bunch of hackneyed garbage that's been repeatedly exposed for 150 years.  Let alone teach the "weaknesses" of evolutionary theory--which include not documenting everything that critics demand.  No one has documented everything the Holocaust deniers demand, either.

They don't think they should have to bother with prejudiced ignorant morons?  And we should?  OK, for LOLs in their case...

Looking at the talkrational thread, Joe started his intellectual odyssey by disliking Israel. (Something that seems to cross all political lines, unless you are a Southern Baptist.)

From this premise he derived the theorem that the holocaust was invented to justify Israeli policy. It follows that he holocaust didn't happen. QED.

There are some family resemblances in this kind of reasoning.

I'm thinking the super-sleuthing consisted of clicking on the tab with the Uncommonly Dense thread in it.  I also find this bit amusing:

But we weren’t kidding when we said that Holocaust denial is unpopular here.


Well, of course it's not.  You can't blame Darwin for it if it never happened.

GinoB is out. What's that like? Our reporter caught up with him at the Barking Spider:

"That post seems to have finally sent KF over the edge because I now find myself silently banned.   My last six posts over the previous two days, all polite responses with links to technical information, were immediately set to 'awaiting moderation' and all were summarily deleted in a few hours.  Of course all the while KF and crew were taking pot shots at me when I wasn't able to respond.

"The non-stop dishonesty and cowardice of the UD moderators, especially you Gordon E. Mullings of Montserrat, is truly stomaching-turning.  

Gino B."

Film at eleven. Film also coating Gordon's teeth.

Expect "Street Theatre" to be banninated shortly:
Quote
The oxymoron that is ID News is merely a synonym for the bitter, and impotent rantings of those scattered die-hards who have yet to understand that the promised scientific, cultural and spiritual revolution has failed.

Uncommon Descent is reminiscent of Hitler’s bunker in the last days of the war – deluded individuals pushing imaginary battalions of IDEA clubs across the map; an ethereal post-apocalyptic radio station, defiantly transmitting songs of resistance and hope to the faithful.

Lol.

KF, you are a pious fraud and a liar:
Quote
That such feel it necessary to conceal their might and manipulation makes might views shows that they realise — deep down — that they are morally abnormal, or even warped, even monstrous.

LOL.

You have no evidence whatsoever that any of us who have been criticizing the Old Testament God for his genocidal tendencies secretly believe that “might and manipulation make right”.

Another false accusation for you to retract.

Ironically, in the comment I was trying to post when I discovered my bannination, I defended the right of KF and JoeG to make stupid and baseless allegations, and my own right to respond to them.
