Even 'ol SD has fallen into the one man/one woman.  It's what works in the end.

Of course it works. For lots of us, now. Sure didn't work for me when I was 21, though.

And will probably not work for me if this current relationship ends...

Looks like Vox is trying to toss a few positive spins on his warmouse again...

I didn't see the warmouse at CES 2011.

I remember getting a Logitech 3-button mouse back when I was running something like MS-DOS 3.1. Why a 3-button mouse with DOS? Well, Logitech provided a TSR program that would allow right-click popup dialog boxes, which you could program with macros. I had an extensive set of control-structures for Turbo Pascal set up in mine, making it really easy to block outline a program.

Nowadays, I can do pretty much anything I need along those lines with Autohotkey. If I were to invest in a specialized pointing input device, I'd go for a Wacom tablet (various of which I *did* see at CES 2011). That would give me a capability I don't otherwise have access to with pressure-sensitivity.

I've overly moody today, so I should probably not take another glance at VD's posts about women.  Sometimes, though, I take great joy in knowing that if we were ever to meet, I would physically tower over him.

In some ways that feeling is similar to the feeling I get when I read the latest distortions and outright lies coming from the ID camp.

From the people who you think never mislead and never distort who'll you'll defend endlessly.

EDIT: So those people defending VD are *you* FTK. How's that feel?

Nice choice he lays out here:



Quote
Rather than pursue the obvious solution and keep women out of the military, the social engineers who have succeeded in getting so many women raped by men who are specifically trained to overcome their societal and moral taboos about not killing other people is to attempt to remove those who refuse to abide by societal taboos from the military. So, it should be interesting to see what their proposed solution for Egyptians rape-mobs is.

But the most interesting thing about the Logan incident is the way it is a metaphorical lesson on the choice facing Western women between three different futures: a) a return to traditional Christian culture, b) rape and the brothel, or c) submission and the burqah.


Note that here he's finally speaking out against rape...I guess it only counts as such if it's done by someone you've never met before?

Ironically enough, he does is while criticizing atheist's logic (and motivations, and personalities, etc).  Just read, you'll see what I mean.

Fallacy:  Consequences of belief.

Oddly, it seems that the studies he talks about mention any religion, not just his.  What does that say about the validity of his particular religion?

If one is going to criticize other's critical thinking skills, shouldn't one make sure that he's not using logical fallacies himself?

I wonder how Revelation is self-correcting.  How would we know? Whose revelation is true when you have multiple contradictory ones?

I did read a few comments down, and after choking on stupidity 3-4 times, I had to stop.  I admit that I wanted to respond to the "Carl Sagan = whiny Jew" comment with a "Like Jesus?" comment, but don't want to soil myself there.
