The $64,000 question, posed to DaveScot:

And you claim that those three children and three grandchildren, given the same ďproper trainingĒ, will be equally heroic when the time comes?

The $64,000 answer:

I have to admit Dave, with all due respect, I think Gerry has a point. You canít chalk up stories like that just to training. That sounds more like a Darwinian reductionist attitude to me.

When YOU have gone through the training, get back to me. Otherwise yours, like Gerryís, is a voice of ignorance. But thatís not why I banned him. I banned him for trying to drag my children and grandchildren through the polluted waters of his so-called mind.

Hmm... I wonder.

Could be that was exactly the post intended by Psychodelict - announcing his/her own bannination. The post Psychodelict was created to post. The only post by that author anywhere on UD. The phrase "ud admin" has only appeared once previously at UD. The loudspeaker in the ceiling wasn't even on.

404s will be harder to track - no mere perusal of fossils embedded in the tard pits will do. Google caches can't be relied upon. Routine snapshots of UD will be needed to recover the text of 404'd threads for posteriority.

Yes and no, as with most things.

I would probably read less more often.  IOW, I would read more for technical interest, sort of like I direct a show.  However, I would probably not do what I do now: read it slavishly for a few days and then get to a point where I don't read it at all for a couple of weeks.

Search engine caches won't help with 404ed threads.  As a rule, these threads are killed quickly before google or yahoo can catch them.  I don't see any simple solution short of mirroring UD offline.

No. Dembski and company's need to coverup their embarrassments was so great they threatened to sue us if we preserved their words. They demanded the right to Expel themselves, in other words.

For what it is worth many accounts get silenced instead of banned.  I have had two accounts where instead of banning me they took away my ability to post anything.  I am still logged in and I can type in the comments box but when I hit "submit" (or whatever it is) the comments never show up.  So although I have not been formally banned, I can no longer post there.  I wonder how many under the radar "bans" like this happen on a daily basis.

My point was simply that it would be absolutely possible for me to obtain a PhD in Geography without gaining any knowledge that would make me any more qualified to talk about Quantum or string theory than the average man in the street.

I realize youíre banned but thought Iíd use your own logic against you.

According to your logic only a PhD botanist should be considered an expert on whether the effects of higher CO2 concentrations are good or bad for agriculture. Obviously you and I are incapable of reading about the relationship between CO2 and plant growth. Well, obviously YOU are incapable, in any case.

And, in keeping with their well-known spirit of fair play, the UDenizens continue to "argue" with leo, despite knowing full well that he will not be able to point out their errors again.

Here, here, here, and here.

The "right sense of humor" is apparently that of a playground bully; WmAD's revenge for all those wedgies he endured as a child.

Relativistic effects. As RBill explained, they wrote their posts before leo was banned, but back-modification by the loudspeaker makes it appear they are deliberately speaking to a ghost. It's unintentionally funny - imagine actors on a stage, ignoring the cops who have swept in to haul away one of their troupe, and continuing to speak lines to him (and pausing for the responses he is no longer able to make) with nary a pause.

It's a fine form of farcical theater. As RBill puts it:

Cue: Iím not following this thread too closely, but to say that methodological naturalism is an essential ingredient of the scientific method betrays a gross ignorance of the history and philosophy of science. Indeed, itís not even fair to say that there is one scientific method. Percy Bridgman put it this way: ďthe scientific method, insofar as it is a method, is doing oneís damndest with oneís mind, no holds barred.Ē In any case, youíre out of here.
