I've been swinging by his den of bible thumping, science denying, racist, misogynistic tools - and it's great. I've not been so excited since I stumbled across uncommon descent. If they're not bashing evilution, they're banging on about the perils of naturalism, and how angels might be messing with stuff. All the time, Vox pomps and preens - very much like DaveTard. I shall be updating here from time to time, but if you're a Tardaholic like me, your boats come in..

Didn't Vox virtually guarantee us that Hilary would get Dem nomination? That one's not looking too good about now......

"Vox" is Theodore Beale, a spoiled rich kid -- son of multi-millionaire Jesus Freak and Federal Inmate (tax evasion)  Robert Beale. He's also a wanna-be S-F writer and general idiot.

Lots of verbiage, damned little substance to his posts -- either on his blog or on Watta Nut Daily. I was amused, though, by this "column" on PZ Myers and "Crackergate" posted: July 14, 2008.

"Vox" gazes into his crystal balls and ventures that  
Quote
"what actually demonstrates the cowardly nature of this self-aggrandizing atheist [PZ Myers, natch] is the fact that there is no chance that he will follow through on his anti-cracker threats now that it is clear there may be material consequences, however minor, to his actions.

The saltines are safe, for just as there are no atheists in foxholes, there is no vow that the militant atheist will not violate if he perceives any risk to his material well-being.


Yeah, that worked out real well for you, "MENSA" boy.

I went over there and let's just say it's going to take a gallon or two of bleach for my brain to ever be as it was pre-exposure.

I did like the description in the comments on "Dispatches...."

I read his book, The Irrational Atheist. It wasn't as bad as some people were saying it was. But I do recommend that you skip the first chapter and focus on the stuff after it.

I believe Reciprocating Bill read it as well.  I can't remember what thread he put his review on--I think it was the Unreasonable Kansans thread, but it could have been the Ftk research thread.

IIRC, he seemed to think it missed the boat quite often: not actually making the case against each atheist's argument.  At least the bits he quoted seemed to have much better sentence structure and meaningful content than Denise O'Leary.  It's something, anyway.

You seem to have liked it somewhat better.  Perhaps I'll have  a go at it when I'm on the road this fall.

You can get it for free from his site (there's a link somewhere) in pdf format.  I have it but have not read it.  

There was a blogger who took the time to read it and dissect it, and that may be in wherever the older post is, but Austin Cline has a lot of Vox, including a bit on his book (http://atheism.about.com/sitesearch.htm?terms=vox&SUName=atheism&TopNode=99).

I think it was Evangelical Realism (link to the old blog, but posts continue if I read correctly - http://realevang.wordpress.com/) - look for TIA tuesday.

That's my favorite quote of the month!  Now, that's a keeper!!!

I disagree on one point, Vox while a complete tool-bag, is very intelligent.  He does, however, lack the ability to interpret information without his religious biased.

Facts make sense to him except when they are contrary to his religious, emotional beliefs.  Then they are just complete lies.

P.S.  I love this pic...What a pretentious douche bag.



I bet this pic is a huge hit with all his Dungeons and Dragons buddies

He's on the wireless now, bashing them thar athiest types..


http://voxday.blogspot.com/2008/08/on-radio.html

Edits - to sort of liveblog.

The fact that these books are doing so well just shows how badly them atheism is doing.
Atheism comes from the aftermath of 911... so it's about fear of islam.
He has no clue what 'agnostic' means.. but is waffling on anyway.
Host has just offered 'atheism is a religion'.
Vox sounds like he's 14 on the phone, BTW.
now and advert for "homeschool heartbeat"
He might be debating Hitchens soon - but Dawkins wont debate Vox, because he's scared obviously.
Again - Atheism is a reaction to Islam.
USA is too rich, therefore atheism.
what is wrong with atheism? It works under a delusion. it borrows its ethics and shit from religion... then some bizarre non sequitur to Stalin killing people.
the commentator tells us about caveman morality - the vox talks about the evolution of morals.
Commentator says "Vox = male man coulter". Vox says he's a 'cruelty artist'.
Vox does his philosophy like he plays his first person shooters, apparently.
Them atheists aren't free thinkers. There's lots of evidence for god, just not scientific evidence.
Geology, Evloution and Biology = crocks of shit.
Vox is part of a new Tard movement - against 'secular hedonism'..
Vox had to choose between Nihilism and Christianity, apparently.
Republicans are too leftist, also.

I offered my thoughts in three posts. If you read the discussion following the third, you'll see that Ftk brought my critique to VD's attention. VD briefly responded - without addressing any of the major points I raised. You'll also notice that Ftk never responded to any of the points I made, and the topic died. (Dog bites man.)

Vox finds a woman thrown onto electric train tracks, burned and with a possible collar bone fracture, "amusing"

   
Quote
Third, given how I suspect the situation developed, it's a cogent illustration of the impotence of female reliance upon the law. I suspect we're going to be seeing more and more of this behavior as it becomes eminently clear to younger men that the law is becoming ever more hostile to their sex. One can just picture the woman imperiously making her righteous demand of the two young thugs in the full confidence that the law is not only on her side, but protecting her, then finding herself sailing through the air as her position and her misplaced confidence are met with a speedy and forceful rebuttal.

Looking at the bright side, Tim LaHaye, another breed of  ass-hat says Obama can't be "The Anti-Christ" because he IS American, and his Bible Tells Him that the anti-christ is not American.   So,  you pays your money, you makes your choice

- Which Asshat do you believe today?

Damn it must be tough being a Believer!  Maybe every Bible should come with a "How To Juggle For Dummies" book, so they can handle all the contradictory ideas.

This is some really repressed gay shit


Quote
Chuck's Chun Kuk Do was unbelievably strong, but his flexibility has waned with the years and so the lightning-fast sokuto intended for my solar plexus only grazed my left shin. Even so, the speed of it forced me to switch from an aggressive Tiger stance to a more defensive Nekko-achi, from which I snapped a front kick that would have crushed his jaw had he not slashed down with a patented Shigawire Mustache block that severed two of my toes. Screaming in pain and fury, I leaped backward while throwing a defensive maegeri that didn't make contact, but blinded him with a spray of blood. While Chuck rubbed at his face to clear his vision, I took advantage of his momentary blindness to attack again and broke several of his ribs with a skipping left sokuto that left a bloody footprint on his white gi.

Chuck doubled over and I stepped forward to throw a right-left combination to his head that would have finished him, but the movement turned out to be a ruse. Just as I threw the right hook, he caught my wrist, twisted his body and threw me over his shoulder, slamming me into the pavement in front of my garage.

Quote
Chuck's Chun Kuk Do was unbelievably strong, but his flexibility has waned with the years and so the lightning-fast sokuto intended for my solar plexus only grazed my left shin. Even so, the speed of it forced me to switch from an aggressive Tiger stance to a more defensive Nekko-achi, from which I snapped a front kick that would have crushed his jaw had he not slashed down with a patented Shigawire Mustache block that severed two of my toes. Screaming in pain and fury, I leaped backward while throwing a defensive maegeri that didn't make contact, but blinded him with a spray of blood. While Chuck rubbed at his face to clear his vision, I took advantage of his momentary blindness to attack again and broke several of his ribs with a skipping left sokuto that left a bloody footprint on his white gi.

Chuck doubled over and I stepped forward to throw a right-left combination to his head that would have finished him, but the movement turned out to be a ruse. Just as I threw the right hook, he caught my wrist, twisted his body and threw me over his shoulder, slamming me into the pavement in front of my garage. I was stunned, naturally, and my shoulder was dislocated, but I managed to roll away before he drove his heel down into my throat. Still, I was in a very precarious position and had all but given up hope of keeping the hawk on Monday's front page. Fortunately for me, the disturbance of the air caused by my violent passage through it had slightly ruffled Joseph Farah's exquisitely coiffed mane, so Mr. Farah immediately called time, declared the match a draw, and told us to sort it out amongst ourselves while he flipped open his solid gold satellite phone and arranged for an emergency styling right there in the driveway.

Looking at the bright side, Tim LaHaye, another breed of  ass-hat says Obama can't be "The Anti-Christ" because he IS American, and his Bible Tells Him that the anti-christ is not American.   So,  you pays your money, you makes your choice

- Which Asshat do you believe today?

Damn it must be tough being a Believer!  Maybe every Bible should come with a "How To Juggle For Dummies" book, so they can handle all the contradictory ideas.

Vox occasionally self proclaims himself an expert in AI.

Here's what players of his games think:

http://www.mobygames.com/game/windows/rebel-moon-rising/mobyrank

and

http://www.somethingawful.com/d/game-reviews/war-heaven.php

Quote
...They are equipped with deadly weapons (sticks) and advanced artificial intelligence so complex that they are capable of either walking towards you OR walking away. Sometimes the enemies choose to run in place or get stuck in doorways, but this is probably just part of God's master plan (I assume). Occasionally enemies will disappear too, which is definitely an added bonus that kept me "on my toes." The game designers also opted to throw in more "difficult" versions of the same enemy. The difference between a normal badguy and its more difficult brother is their skin hue, and the fact that it takes three minutes of holding down the "attack" key to kill the difficult guy, as opposed to the normal two. After playing this game for many hours, I have discovered the optimal attack plan, which you should follow when encountering any kind of enemy in this game:

1) Approach opponent by walking towards it in a straight line. They will do the same.
2) Hold down the "attack" key.*
3) Wait until enemy dies or game crashes.
4) Repeat instructions until everything on map is dead.

* Advanced tactic (for experienced players only): try moving to the right occasionally. It doesn't really help, but you end up a little bit to the right of where you originally were.

To claim that a man or a woman should be disqualified from political participation for failing to genuflect before the current state of science - an intrinsically moving target - is anti-democratic, fascistic, and historically ignorant. One can make a much better case for limiting government by sex, height, or even hair color, things that are far less subjective and less given to abuse by an authoritarian oligarchy. And given the fact that scientage is a dynamic entity, the abjuring of the admittedly bad science of yesterday is no guarantee that today's scientific consensus is not tomorrow's bad science.

I think eventually it will be revealed that there's only ever been one person actually posting here at ATBC.

I predict it'll be Bornagain77.

happy working woman,
You protest too much. Home alone with the cats? And this isn't the same as an inner city female negro with child. The daughter is getting married(not too much of that with blacks) and won't be on welfare(too much of that with blacks). The daughter's child is much less likely to be a criminal or have an average IQ of 85. Fine by me...

I'm confused. You said it's off topic, and deleted my posts concerning it. Do you want to talk about it, or do you just want to pontificate with no right-of-reply? Would this mixed message be 'social autism'?

Not your fault. I'm not the only one with delete powers here. Tell you what. Sometime soon, I'll do a post on social autism and we'll discuss it then since I'm truly not interested in an echo chamber. However, I'm also not interested in permitting the thread hijacking that was once common, so let's table it for now and concentrate on abstinence and so forth.

Now we're bashing that evil technology thing, which isn't as good as religion, obviously. Stan points out most of the posters would be dead because life expectancy was low before if was helped along by medicine, sanitation, etc.

But that's a BIG LIE© Big Science.

It turns out life expectancy was low... because of slavery - source, Vox Day's terrible book.

Vox finds a woman thrown onto electric train tracks, burned and with a possible collar bone fracture, "amusing"

Third, given how I suspect the situation developed, it's a cogent illustration of the impotence of female reliance upon the law. I suspect we're going to be seeing more and more of this behavior as it becomes eminently clear to younger men that the law is becoming ever more hostile to their sex. One can just picture the woman imperiously making her righteous demand of the two young thugs in the full confidence that the law is not only on her side, but protecting her, then finding herself sailing through the air as her position and her misplaced confidence are met with a speedy and forceful rebuttal.

Oink! Oink!, by Leo Reynolds

I have a confession to make.  I like...the John Norman "Gor" books.  I like them because of his hideous run-on style, some quirky humor, and the taken-from-history sci-fi/fantasy setting.  When he gets into psychology and male-female relationships, I admit my mind shuts down, my eyes glaze over, and I have to skip past.  Too many readings of "a man is a lion, a woman is a flower" and horribly funny stereotypes where women say they want to be men...but that's what Teddy thinks is true.

Quote (Richardthughes @ Sep. 03 2008,10:21)
Now we're bashing that evil technology thing, which isn't as good as religion, obviously. Stan points out most of the posters would be dead because life expectancy was low before if was helped along by medicine, sanitation, etc.

But that's a BIG LIE© Big Science.

It turns out life expectancy was low... because of slavery - source, Vox Day's terrible book.

I guess that someone is pointing out that in ancient times, people lived 900 years - just look at Adam and Noah! ?

Maybe someone can point out that there is evidence that life span and health was greater in ancient times, well, greater until the advent of farming, when life expectancy and health dropped.  Then it kept on down until science came along and progress was made.  His whole Biblical view was right down there in the low-and-dirty lifespan.

Someone needs to get Teddy a working brain.

WESM, you can't make any threads here until you've been around a while, and then you have to ask one of the moderators for permission. Keeps Russian Viagra spammers out.

So I assume you now have the magical proof of God's existence that's eluded everyone else, right? Was it somewhere in the endnotes of Ted Beale's book?

I'm sure you've already seen and heard the overwhelming evidence, so I wont bother. You're committed to atheism and no amount of evidence could ever change that. I respect your loyalty, even if you are the equivalent of a modern-day flat-Earther.

Friday I saw her picture and thought, "Man, she's kind of cute." Then I read up about her. Now I hate female prezs on principle. But I'm voting Insane this ticket on the hope he croaks.

The Magic Negro must be crapping himself. I think he's cooked. I think Palin is about to take America by storm. I wonder if God hasn't answered many a prayer for a good prez. I just hope she really is what I've been reading about.

I listen to Savage a lot and I can't figure out why he hates her. Does anyone know why? I'm curious.

My perpetual, and perpetually unanswered question [on the amusing assumption that mud stuffin hasn't already fled the building] is:
just what the heck is this 'god' thingie that you are so convinced science has provided incontrovertible proof of the existence thereof?
In my not inconsiderable experience, 'god' is at best a meta-syntactic placeholder, or an affirmation of group membership on the 'us' side of the 'us vs them' preconceptual mentation indulged in by the likes of vox dei and others of that ilk.
But I do eagerly await a definition, description, or at least operational instructions as to how I could tell that what I had discovered was a god rather than some other thingy.

It's his own thing he made up called 'social autism'. He has a book called 'the irrational atheist' that you can download from his website where he talks about it, if you have some spare braincells you'll never get back.

That's my favorite quote of the month!  Now, that's a keeper!!!

I disagree on one point, Vox while a complete tool-bag, is very intelligent.  He does, however, lack the ability to interpret information without his religious biased.

Facts make sense to him except when they are contrary to his religious, emotional beliefs.  Then they are just complete lies.

P.S.  I love this pic...What a pretentious douche bag.



I bet this pic is a huge hit with all his Dungeons and Dragons buddies

Hey, what's wrong with DnD?

Granted 4th Edition sucks but 3.5 is great(*)!

Traveller, "This is Free Trader Beowulf.  Under atteck, losing atmoshpere" love that game.  Mega-Traveller almost killed my enjoyment of gaming.

Gamma World, TFT (The Fantasy Trip), Empire of the Petal Throne, Arduin Grimoire and more.

Not to mention Ogre, GeV, Car Wars, Nuclear War, you name it.

computer based RPG games seem to be getting there, but I don't subscribe to any as they'd take time I don't have.

Tell me about it.

I got a 1st Ed. AD&D book for my daughter's 18th birthday (she games with my group).  Fortunately it was only $10.

I've just got my PS3 turned on to continue Fallout 3.  That is uber-kewl, especially when I blow some super-mutant up and have his head splatter apart in slow motion.

Yeah, I'm sick.

(But, yeah, I spent quite a bit to buy the boxed Runequest and Troll Pack, just for the memories, but maybe I'll get a game up too.  I still have my first edition champions books, a lot of my old D&D, and many of the games I mentioned.)

I'd forgotten about that one.  Hadn't played that one in longer than all of my students have been alive (but not all added together, that is).

I grew up on Panzer Leader, Starship Troopers, that Minarian Legends game...got to look that up, if I could remember the name...

Never did play Cosmic Encounter, but I heard that could be a bit on the intense side.

10-15 years ago I used to sell high performance networked PC's to a small groups of geophysicists in oil companies for <cough> *seismic interpretation software*.

One word: Runescape.

It's so bad, it's good. As MMPORGs go it is the shizzle IMO. Sadly I have....

{Does rough calculations, factoring in imminent baby, redecorating "office" as "nursery", working hard to get big promotion to pay for imminent baby, trying to get back to match fitness (and removing fat bastard status accumulated by combinations of injury, years of debauchery and sloth) again by handing my life over to a gym, doing extra work writing a book when I can (chemistry, don't get excited, it should be ready about 20 years after I die), fucking about on Teh Intarwebs (naughty, one of the guilty pleasures still allowed to me...although perhaps not for long) and sleeping (which I won't be doing for long either apparently)}

....minus four days a week to play it. Can we campaign for the 11 day week, 5 at work, 2 for the weekend 4 for MMPORGs? Will it fly?

And as with all these things it can get a bit repetitive and dull just clicking away and unlike real gaming, it's hardly social in the same way.

However, and I will say this, possibly to the consternation/outrage of many, the one problem I found with RPGaming is, erm, other gamers. There are a majority of utterly sad bastards out there in my experience, and gaming with morons never appealed. The few times I've found fun gamers have been great however, although it's >16 years now since I've gamed. Maybe in the USA, where it's more popular I understand, it's a better environment, but nowadays I'd rather be outdoors in the few moments I get, walking, swimming, something, ANYTHING rather than being cooped up again.

Oops diversion!

Does anyone here play MMORPGs? I've heard interesting things about WoW, but never played a game. I did have an old version of just plain Warcraft for my old Mac about...umm....some years ago (10 I think) and it was fun ish.

Everytime I go to Voxday's blog I die a little inside.

My advice: Don't go.

I've been avoiding the Alpha Fail, like all TARD that hasn't been at least filtered through someone else's brain, for a while.

I did read his "book" however.

I woke up in hospital having had a massive brain fart (proper medical term that). Apparently blood was gushing from my nose as I read each page and I had to be kept alive by infusions of blood and minced copies of useful philosophy books.

There comes a point when the TARD is simply too powerful for one person to encompass and they collapse into a TARDhole. This is what has happened to Vox Doofus. Dangerous to get close to. I suggest a dose of rationality, go read the Wikipedia entry on The Enlightenment. It usually brightens my day.

In the same register (although a bit under technicaly), but FREE, there is Rappelz.

I've played it for about 2 months last year, and it was aaaarrrggghh ("higlhy enjoyable", or "quick, more boiling oil", or "Your wife is a big hyppo").

I've had to put a stop to it for fear of my social life. But it's still really nice and entertaining, and one thing I liked with it is that there was a server with no PvP whatsoever, which greatly reduces one's need to buy a shotgun and get into IP-localisation lessons...

Second, I've heard somewhere that I need a wife in order to divorce. Should someone provide one to me, I'll make sure your prediction happens*.

Ok, now I'm bleeding out my ears.  And not just from El Primo Tard, the prophet Teddy.  The commenters are similarly idiots.  Of course, we got the anti-vax, and the "why trust science when it changes all the time" - what else is there for morons to feed on.  

I forgot that, like a bunch of others, that Vox is supposed to be highly intelligent - didn't he claim Mensa membership?  If so, I'm not surprised - most of the people who go around claiming to be in Mensa are really disconnected from reality and really egotistical and arrogantly proclaim their own superiority.  Is this common, or is it the vocal minority that gets all the attention and most Mensa members are ok?

I joined Mensa at 16 years old and left at 16 and a bit years old. The "bit" was all it took me to figure out that I was paying a group of people to tell me how clever I was, and thus, they were more clever than me. In hindsight I shouldn't have been bloody stupid enough to join in the first place. I'll put it down to teenage insecurity and hormones.

I've taken various proper IQ tests since then and been happy with the results, but really it's just something to keep my hand in. Logic problems can be fun.....

....Oh fuck have I just confessed to logic problems being fun and liking an MMORPG? In one day! Pig's knackers!

I think I just outed myself as an uber geeky nerdlinger super spod. I swear blind this:



isn't me.

Promise. No really. Honest.

Louis

P.S. The few Mensa people I met were okay, but then I met about a dozen or so, nearly 20 years ago, so hardly anything to form a good judgement with.

P.P.S. I *am* better than everyone else, but not because I once joined Mensa. It's because my Mummy says so. Even better, Arden's Mummy says so too. And she should know.

"No more BS "no statistical correlation has been found", no more "no peer reviewed study has proven", no more dancing and ducking and evading the obvious solution of actually putting the scientific method to work. Interpolation and extrapolation aren't sufficient. Statistical analysis isn't enough. Peer reviewed metastudies are of zero value. Pump 1,000 kids full of toxinsvaccines according to the complete schedule and leave a control group of 1,000 completely unvaccinated. Then report on how they're doing every six months. There's no excuse not to do it, it's eminently doable."

Also, nice lumping together of Socrates, Russell, Dawkins, and Jesus-scorning, like they all go together, as if those four address the same intellectual problems.

You clearly failed to understand the point. Jesus Christ - or whoever wrote his dialogue, if you prefer - is clearly operating at a more formidable intellectual level than Socrates, Russell, or Dawkins. Those jokers couldn't even handle me, let alone Paul or Augustine.

The VD mine is a good one. As an attractor for unhinged science-denying right wingers, its a top top draw.

His evo posts are the best. He doesn't like that evolution one bit. Its rubbish at predicting teh future, so its not proper science. He wont actually say what his view on origins are,  presumably because teh return fire would be depleted uranium versus the peashooter he employs.

'Evolution is made up'. We dance the dance of the creationist canards, the Lucy twist, the Peppered Moth Jive. Then someone mentions ERVs, so his demented wife is put on high alert to delete any posts that mention these.

Look at it this way. X=designer and Y=design. We know Y exists, so it is equal to at least 1. Dawkins states that X MUST be greater than Y. I contradict and state that X may or may not be greater than Y. We don't have a value for X, but we do know that if there is no designer, then X=0, obviously. However, we know that 0 is not greater than 1, therefore Dawkins has to be incorrect.

WTF?  Start out with "We know that Y exists" - since when?  We have the appearance of design, but they still need to try to show that "Y = 1"

Not only that, but the writer has no clue as to what the argument is.  Completely clueless.  :O

Should somebody mention that "design" and "designer" aren't numbers? And that they aren't even members of a well ordered series?

From the thread:

 
Quote
Christianity: the belief that some cosmic Jewish zombie can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him that you accept him as your master, so he can remove some evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because some rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree.

Makes perfect sense.

I think that the V for victory shows the palm of the hand, while the 2-fingered salute shows the back of the hand to the recipient (and a beckoning-type motion of the hand, too?).

A regular muses on evolutionary theory:

http://voxday.blogspot.com/2009/07/mailvox-simulating-evolution.html

Quote
Evolution... Supposedly has it's beginnings in a primordial soup. (sigh)

All this evolution stuff begs the questions:

1. Supposedly everything goes back to the big bang. Where did all this matter come from?
2. If the right chemicals were present in a primordial soup and then something happens, (i.e. lightning, an aliens cigarette butt (or whatever aliens smoke) being tossed into the pot, maybe a chemical battery was formed and discharged) the right chemicals form together to form DNA on the molecular level and poof! A single cell creature is formed.

What did this little single cell creature eat? Because in order to eat, something must die. Unless they are a plant. They make food from soil and the sun. Now if this little cell is of plant type, Then how come mammals, reptiles and fish are not somewhat like plants? And how come the single cell could survive to reproduce (asexually I assume) to make up the world we live in now? How come the first little guy didn't starve to death for lack of food?


Bet you "scientists" never thought of that..

But he can keep running away and I'll keep laughing at him, that suits me just fine too. Dawkins is too dumb to pay attention to criticism, which is why his arguments, to the extent they even are arguments, never improve.

Actually Hylomorpic, you've just made Vox's point for him.

Gould made the same point, that if evolution was reversed and allowed to run again then the outcome would be different than what we have. However lack of repeatability equals lack of predictability equals lack of status as a scientific theory.

You last point fails on exactly that point. You can't claim that the evidence for evolution is empirical if evolution doesn't predict anything you can actually empirically test.</blockquote>

A common point of confusion among those whose understanding of the philosophy of science goes no further than the first chapter of their chemistry book is that science demands the prediction of outcomes of future experiments.

While it's certainly true that the easiest and most reliable method of acquiring scientific data is by planning and running repeatable experiments, this is often impractical or impossible. Particularly for fields like archaeology, geology, and paleontology, which primarily investigate past events. It is not essential that the event discovered and added to the data set be repeatable. It is only essential that the observation of the event itself be repeatable--other scientists can come look at those dinosaur fossils, for instance.

Astrophysics is another example of a science which cannot make repeatable experiments, though it frequently does deal with the future. It is simply not possible to experimentally repeat sending a particular comet around the sun. Which is why, when an interesting celestial event occurs which is rare enough that future observations will be difficult, multiple scientific organizations try to train their telescopes on it to mitigate observer bias.



<blockquote class="userCommentQuote"><b>VD: 9/20/09 6:47 AM:</b>
Agreed.  So what?  One can't reasonably claim the credibility of scientific rigor and then complain that doing the actual science is too hard.  The fact that you CAN'T do it is conclusive evidence that you AREN'T doing it.  Most evolutionary "science" is in fact the use of proxies for science.  Not unreasonable, but not science either.</blockquote>

I was trying to make the point that a method unreliable for the social sciences may be much more reliable for the hard sciences. What did you think I was trying to say?

<blockquote class="userCommentQuote"><b>VD: 9/20/09 6:47 AM:</b>
<blockquote class="userCommentQuote"><b>Hylomorphic: 9/19/09 1:03 PM:</b>
Second, biology makes little use of backtesting in the way you describe it. Evolutionary biology, as far as I'm aware, makes none to speak of. </blockquote>Real biology doesn't.  Evolution apologists certainly do.  That's what many the citations of the fossile record are based upon.  Or look at the way the discovery of the Tiktaalik fossil is portrayed.</blockquote>

You must have revised your definition of "backtesting," and you look rather like you've fallen into the same fundamental confusion as Jason. It is not backtesting merely because it deals with past events; it only becomes backtesting when a simulated model is run. That method is not (as far as I know) used by biologists.

In fact, it would be a sign of the strength of evolutionary theory if the sort of backtesting you describe could be done (though, as I said, I think that's a wildly optimistic hope). It would verify as never before its theoretical soundness.

As it happens, Tiktaalik was discovered through logical inference from known factors in the fish-to-reptile transition. For the transition to occur in the way believed, such and such a kind of creature would have to have existed at some point, and it probably would have had to live in such and such an area at such and such a time. A prediction having been made, the scientists went out into the field to make their observations. And in this case, the observation confirmed the hypothesis.

This is a textbook example of scientific discovery. Not "backtesting."<hr />[/quote]

Sounds like somebody is taking "prediction" to mean predicting every result in infinite detail. Science wouldn't work if infinite detail was necessary; the point is that some predictions can be made that can be tested.

Falsification: Something else Vox Day doesn't understand:

http://voxday.blogspot.com/2009/09/mailvox-falsification.html

Quote
R wonders what would qualify:


I'd very much appreciate it if you would elaborate on what you would consider a falsification of Christianity.


There are numerous possibilities, including:

1) The discovery of Jesus Christ's body.
2) An intact Temple in Jerusalem.
3) The end of war or poverty.
4) The elimination of the Christian Church.
5) Immortality science.
6) A demonstrated ability to avoid Biblical sin.
7) The destruction of the Jewish people.

These are all material things, easily and objectively observable. It is incorrect to claim that religion is magically beyond scientific observation. God may be, but it's readily apparent that most religions, including Christianity, are not.


2) is the only remotely useable one.

Someone already had the name Beelzebub so I had to take the next number.

The problem with Item 1 is that a lot of believers have already stated that if Simcha Jacobovici actually did discover the tomb of Jesus it still wouldn't convince them that the Resurrection is bunk.

To the larger question of whether Vox Day has the slightest clue what "falsifiable" means.  Of course not!  Vox Day never understands what he's talking about -- and never lets that stop him.  Falsifiable means you have to be able to conceive an experiment that would show something is false, not that there are fortuitous events that may or may not transpire showing something to be false if you're very lucky.

Your posts used to shine a little ray of reality into Vox's cave and provide much needed critique. Of course that's incompatible with his ego. But I was (am) a big fan. I hope you find some of the other threads interesting - are you a logician?

Or maybe he doesn't want us delaying the rapture any longer?

edit to add this nugget from Vox:

Actually, the main reason I'm so strongly against the AGW/CC BS is that I'm from Minnesota. You know, an area that used to be COMPLETELY COVERED WITH ICE. During the years I lived there, I happened to notice that IT IS NO LONGER COMPLETELY COVERED WITH ICE. Ergo, the rational conclusion is that the planet has been warming considerably for quite some time without any help from Man.

Also, I fail to see any significant downside to the sudden and catastrophic inundation of the East and West Coasts portrayed in the more hysterical global warming scenarios.

Thanks.  No, not a logician, though I've done the obligatory reading of Godel, Escher, Back, and I try not to make the usual mistake of reading too much into the Godel proof -- which is becoming unfortunately fashionable.

VD has many problems beyond extreme ego inflation; many stem from his utter devotion to unexamined belief.

Oops, I mean Bach.  I was tired, so, so tired.  I felt like showing up here saying "My name is Beelzebub...and I'm a tardaholic, Ahh--huh, huh, sniffle.  It's been 3 days since I last visited Vox Popoli."

Seriously though, I'm trying to cut back.  The lunatics are now running that asylum -- and you know what?  You aren't going to change them.  They're so far gone that they're never coming back.  But the reason places like this are still important is that I feel sorry for the dupe who shows up at VP and says yeah, I'm going to read more and take this guy seriously -- and so the insanity spreads like a disease.  If there isn't at least the vague opportunity for counterpoint, that's a grave error.

No, let someone else take the next crack. I'm really not interested in debating evolution with anyone who doesn't have a PhD in biology. The average individual can't be expected to have any idea what I'm talking about, as we've seen already.

Well, he has part of that right, but not for the reasons he thinks.  I read a bit of the first posting of the letter/exchange with Vox and Luke, and the lack of empathy, humanity, and even basic logical thought among the Voxtards is simply incredible.  At least some of them are just naked in their belief that they are right because they are right.  I'd say it was surprising, but having seen Teddy and his echo chamber or tard, it would take a lot to surprise me about him.

Somebody who comments over there should give a response to the fellow saying that "Pasteur was a creationist"...

Quote

Virulence appears in a new light which cannot but be alarming to humanity; unless nature, in her evolution down the ages (an evolution which, as we now know, has been going on for millions, nay, hundreds of millions of years), has finally exhausted all the possibilities of producing virulent or contagious diseases -- which does not seem very likely.


A pretty flexible creationist, it would seem.

Oh I agree absolutely. Denialists of all species basically do things the same way. You can substitute the terms "climate change" for "evolution" or "The Holocaust" or "medicine" in denialist screeds depending on whether you are talking to/reading an AGW denier, a creationist, a Holocaust denier or a homeopath. It's the same basic shit sundae with slightly different turd sprinkles.

It's an attitude I've never understood. I simply don't get the mentality that runs "I have this idea, I like this idea, I'll compare it as accurately as I can to reality, what do you mean it doesn't match? Reality must be wrong!". It beggars belief.....literally.

Rich - is that you commenting on this thread (http://commonsenseatheism.com/?p=3660)?

I love the strength of the arguments - you had a believer in Plantiga's BS.  There's the guy who thinks that religion exists, and this proves...god?...I'm not sure.  People believe that Kunoiki footpads, and coffee enemas, work.  And that since a belief in gods is old, then atheists (a "new" theory) have to prove that they are wrong, completely ignoring the fact that these religions have yet to prove that they are right in the first place.  I think he's also the evolution denier, but as one of Teddy's drones, I'm sure there is a lot of denialism going on.  Then you have the postmodernist.  Nice collection.

That's again straight from the Crackpot Index: 20 points for talking about how great your theory is, but never actually explaining it.

I once took a college credit class where I was the only person in the room except for a guy who showed up without any preparation at all.  Somehow he thought he would pass anyway.  He spent four hours scribbling odd answers and essays on a math exam.  Crackpot in training.

I think the crackpot is someone who's ambition to be recognized outstrips both their talent and willingness to work.

Beale's problem is that he thinks he's a leading light, when in actuality he's an irrelevant crackpot with a handful of like-minded loonies. The classic contrarian, mainstream X must be wrong, and he gloms onto whatever denialism is doing the rounds and promotes it. I agree he's not that bright, (2 standard deviations...!) but he does work hard..at being wrong.

I suppose that's true.  He does seem to crank out his fiction and absurd economic stuff, with the absolute sureness that he has a clearer vision than Nobel prize winners.  In terms of genuine creative insight, I've never gotten the impression that he's any brighter than a Mickey Mouse night light.  But he thinks he's a damn genius.

My latest comment on VP, soon to be deleted:

Quote
Okay, but


The reason Christianity is rationally justified even though the ontological argument, cosmological argument, teleological argument, the magical resurrection of Jesus, and the existence of evil do not entail the complete truth of Christianity – which, according to 1 Corinthians 13:11, every Christian knows we cannot know – but they still suffice to establish the Bible as the most credible authority regarding that which is unknown.


is still not a sentence. Before embarking on grammatical complexity, better check that you have the brainpower to do it.


This is one of my peeves with Vox Day.  His writing is atrocious.  He apparently thinks that if he constructs a sentence that he personally can't parse, that it's some kind of testament to his intelligence.  Unfortunately grammar is grammar, and if you can't even write a grammatically correct sentence, you're not that smart.

Yeah, I'm not sure about the linguistic unification thing anymore. I probably had too much of Eco's In Search of the Perfect Language in mind when I wrote that; it wouldn't falsify Christianity so much as some esoteric Renaissance notions of pre-Babel history. As far as the alien recording goes, obviously if we had a video recording which showed there were no Roman crucifixions in Jerusalem from 10 BC to 10 AD, that would falsify Christianity.

You may quite reasonably find it annoying that I don't bother to prove the documentary support for what I am saying. What you don't appear to have grasped is that in addition to feeling it is often unnecessary, this is also a form of showing mercy. Those who demand for detailed and conclusive proof from me often find they much preferred it when I was simply telling them that they were ignoramuses, because at least then they could pretend it was merely a matter of my opinion. Just remember that Luke asked for it.

It boils down to one thing: scientists tend to be very bad at logic. So, they are not a credible authority on anything that relies upon logic rather than science.

Which is why Evolutionists don't debate. The science - actual science, not the rituals by people in lab-coats - is NOT on their side. Someone else gave an example above of PZ talking about complexity "just being there". It isn't. They can't explain things like the Burgess Shale and the Cambrian Explosion. Science would say it was seeded. Evolutionists say it just all popped into existence via some unexplained and unidentified magical process.

Wow.

I'm sorry....is there another type of science that I don't now about?

After seeing that quote I literally laughed so hard I hurt myself.  And then I wept.  I wept for humanity, even though there's a little voice inside of me that wants me to believe nobody can be so stupid.

Edit: was that choice nugget from Vox or one of his goons?

Yes. And no, I'm sure you can work it out for yourself. It's not exactly difficult and all of the necessary information is readily available to you.




You're really not understanding 'IQ as a sampling exercise' are you? Let me hold your hand:

Do people always test to the same score?
If not, why not?
How many questions would you need to ask to know how smart someone is?
Do people with the same IQ get the same questions right?

I await your epiphany.

I saw Vox's 'Irrational Atheist' book in our library. It surprised me that this drivel would find it's way into a small Australian regional library.
It was right next to "The God Delusion"

Quote
I've seen too many "impossible" things come to pass to be foolish enough to rely purely on logic when dealing with what is or is not possible. That's precisely the same mistake that the materialists are making. We have real living clones these days, for crying out loud. They're even talking about breaking the speed of light, and you want to strike a pose about what is and is not possible based on logic? I think that's crazy.

I find most "classic Christian arguments" to be irrelevant and counterproductive because they rely upon supporting their own assumptions rather than dealing effectively with the assumptions of the other side. Which, of course, is why I am considering the matter of the material from the perspective of a division between natural and supernatural in the first place.

Why Shulz (Peanuts Cartoon) > Popper (Problem of Induction)

http://voxday.blogspot.com/2009....ll.html

Quote
Popper's work doesn't have much to do with humanity or even attempting to describe truth, he's as akin to a mathematician as to a philosopher. Because science is merely one of the minor aspects of human existence, a philosopher of science will obviously rank lower as a philosopher than a philosopher of humanity like Schulz, whose work concerned the more central problems of existence and human nature

Wow.  I just listened to VD's radio interview here  It's the first time I've ever heard him speak.

 I actually felt embarrassment for the arrogant little prick.  He sounds like a frikken squeaky-voiced teenager.  His dialog was filled with errs, umms, likes, y'knows, and the other verbal tics of someone who can't think "on his feet".
The most embarrassing moment came when he was talking about his predictions for the upcoming Great Depression [tm]

Cracked me up.  He certainly didn't sound anything like a self-described "Internet Superintelligence" to me.  I wonder who his ghost writer is. Maybe spacebunny?
