I don't see a reason to cagey about it, either. http://biologos.org/blog....beliefs

Mike Gene's interlocutor has the same name mentioned at Panda's Thumb. It seems that Mike sorta flipped out, but maybe the context is gone due to other deletions.

Is Mike Gene still alive? The ONLY reason anyone pays attention to that guy is the faux mystery that he cultivates so carefully.

Well done in making 'the memory hole' the most informative part of Telic Tards, Oleg!

I know I'm a sad git, still prone to glancing in at the train wreck that TT has become. I only check it out for the oleg gems.

But this made my jaw drop:

At what frequency in the visible spectrum do we find black light, oh wise one?

Oh dear, chunky is starting to lose it - posts may start disappearing soon.

It started as a typical TT thread - obsessing about Dawkins and drifting into an absolute morality morass.  But it has hotted up recently.

chunkdz:
 
Quote
If there were no such thing as pure white then gray could not exist.

Is there such a thing as pure white?  Uh oh.  Don Provan tells chunks he is silly.  Just like joe g, chunky suspects he has goofed and starts thrashing, snapping off several quick comments without waiting for reply.

 
Quote
What is gray if not a corruption of pure white?

 
Quote
What is gray without white?  Utter darkness.

 
Quote
By what light, Don, do you claim to be able to discern these shades of gray?

 
Quote
One thing for everyone to notice:

Remember days ago when Don assured us that he took Christianity seriously and did not think it was merely a delusion?

Two days later he is declaring it silly and irrational to proclaim that God is absolutely good.

The only thing anyone has noticed is your desperate thrashing, chunky.  Don says your prattling about pure white is silly, you play the victim card and try to pretend that he's attacking your gawd.  If anyone were concerned that you might not know what you're talking about, you cleared it up in the your next comment.
 
Quote
Actually there is pure white in the universe – at the extreme end of the visible spectrum.

Is that the red end or the violet end?  No, wait, don't tell me - the tard end.
 
Quote
Bonus tard:  Atheists and Christians can share the same morals. But as I just said, atheists have no idea where they come from.

That has so much tard packed into it that there's barely enough arrogance to contain it all.


ETA:  See Alan Fox above - chunky isn't done yet.  Be careful, chunkerz, you know how sometimes the TT memory hole gets all glitchy and loses comments altogether.

No, you're going the wrong way. Infrawhite. Or maybe it's the subdominant. Unless you're in the Mixolydian mode. I always get those confused.

I have just read that thread. I am now stupider. It hurts me but I liked it a little bit. The visible spectrum from black to white? Holy Happy Sacks in a Blender Batman! Please, please, please, PLEASE tell me this buffoon is joking, that this is an elaborate hoax. Otherwise I might just have to either commit suicide or go on a moron killing spree. I'm not sure which yet. After all, it is quite clear that living in a world where stupid of that magnitude exists is simply intolerable.

Edit: P.S. Behind the hyperbole I'm actually vaguely serious. Perhaps I woke up on the "sensitive flower" side of the bed this morning, but reading that has actually annoyed me. Having to deal with people who repeatedly refuse to make even the barest intellectual effort and who pathologically exist in a state of bad faith in their interactions with others is causing me to be genuinely angry. And I've just READ the damned thing. I don't even talk to Chunky other than to mock the fuckwit. I think I'm off to punch a moron. Catharsis seems like my only outlet....now which of my colleagues has been especially stupid today already.....hmmmm.....

P.P.S. Oh okay, that last bit was comedy hyperbole too. I won't actually punch anyone. But by golly I'll think about it. And there's nothing you can do to stop me...mwah ha...mwah ha ha ha ha! ;-)

Oh I know. Perhaps it's because it's Thursday, but it's annoying me today.

I am on "weaponsofmassdestruction.com" buying myself a bloody great big howitzer in case the Jehovah's Witnesses turn up at my door when I get home today. They're in for a tough time.

Hmmmm that reminds me. Call the Jehovah's Witnesses and make sure they turn up....

This is my first and probably my last post on this thread. I had this "no black'n'white, no gray" debate with a friend in college. Said friend became really offended when I said that "Black and white are merely abstractions of gray." But I never said that there were not in fact whiter or blacker grays, or that just because these gradations exist on a continuum we can never say this or that is not, for the most part, wrong or right.

This seems to be the same conversation: If no absolute black or white, then all is the same shade of gray, ergo moral relativism! Which is ludicrous.

I may be way off, but wouldn't the radiation, or rather lack of, of a black body at 0°K  be absolute black?
OTOH, I can't see any reason why there should be a limit on the strength of 'white' radiation.

As I understand it, the uncertainty principle implies that some radiation will happen, no matter how close to 0?K that black body might happen to get.

Plus, 0?K won't happen, or at least won't stay that way for more than an instant for two or more atoms. (Of course, for one atom by itself temperature is kind of meaningless.)

Okay, let's be fair: maybe Chunkotard just confused spectrum with intensity.

Or maybe he was sick that day in 9th grade physics when the prisms were handed out.

All right. I know I am off topic and I am not very serious about this, but unless we are dealing with a specific box of crayons, my problem is that according to my understanding of the spectrum of radiation, 'black' is just our name for what we perceive as black while in reality the 'color' may be any shade of infrared. Or maybe ultraviolet?

Maybe we'd need Goethe to sort it out for us.

Republican New York Senator Comes Out for Gay Marriage with Awesome Quote
“You get to the point where you evolve in your life where everything isn’t black and white, good and bad, and you try to do the right thing,” McDonald, 64, told reporters. “You might not like that. You might be very cynical about that. Well, fuck it, I don’t care what you think. I’m trying to do the right thing. “I’m tired of Republican-Democrat politics. They can take the job and shove it. I come from a blue-collar background. I’m trying to do the right thing, and that’s where I’m going with this.”


Next stop...

yeah, black is lack of visible light. White is the porridge of all frequencies between infrared and ultraviolet.  Some whites are whiter than others, depending on the constitution of the porridge.

No. It was simply chunk being an intellectually dishonest douche. Redefine "visible spectrum" on the fly, you see, and   you can call your opponents dumbasses for not reading your tiny mind.

I find that if you put sultanas in the porridge, the oaty bits in between seem even whiter.

Hope this is a useful submission for the topic at hand.
