If "retired nuclear engineer so and so" turned out to be just a creationist with fake credentials, it wouldn't surprise me.

(Disclaimer: i have no idea who 'Regis Nicoll' is, nor do i give a shit.)

I know you don't give a shit, and neither should you, but apparently this schmuck was a health physicist for the TVA for 28 years, retiring in 2004. He's been a wingnut wordsmith for the past 10+ years. If one looks up Salvo magazine's partners in lies, it's a true rogues' gallery - also, the attack squirrel Casey Luskin is a "senior editor".

Attack gerbil.  Luskin was the DI's attack gerbil.

Please don't debase squirrels by associating then with asshat Luskin.   :)

Boy, they're full-blown global warming deniers over there, ain't they? No surprise. Global warming is basic chemistry. If we can't expect them to understand basic biology, basic chemistry is probly slightly harder, even.


CO2 ...  It's what plants crave.

LOL ! Quantum confinement is a phenomenological model. Would you say converting multibody body problem to 2 body problem too is just ‘scientific labeling’ ?! Wonder what this ‘Nuclear Engineer’ did for 30 long years.

Re "Global warming is basic chemistry."

Not just that. It also involves reflection of outgoing photons, which isn't quite as elementary as basic chemistry.

There are all kinds of second order effects, but the primary process is

A) Carbon dioxide traps heat
B) We add 38 billion tons of CO2 to the atmosphere per year.

And records show the earth has gotten consistently hotter since we started that shit.

Which is the simple nut of the matter, but yeah, there are lots of other complications like the absorption of CO2 by the oceans, the albedo of clouds, geological events, changes in humidity and other gases, etc.

I'll call all the chemistry journals and tell them to pack it in. Right after I call the biology journals and tell them to close up shop because a few poorly-educated creationists post stupidity on blogs.

They probably haven't even heard of Displacement!

What really gives me the willies about batshit77 is he jumps from "atheists think people are worthless automata" to "atheists are worthless automata".  He's literally dehumanizing his adversaries.

He's super-dumb, too.

'I'm saying you're a non-person because if I assume the position of what I imagine your erroneous position is, you're a non-person.'

That makes no kind of sense whatsoever, demonstrates his ability to discard whatever principles he'd claim to support, and is clearly just a facile excuse for acting shitty to people who don't agree with him.

Possibly a successful intervention. Let’s find out who was used and point them at Batshitcrazy77 and KairosFocus.

Dear all who have responded to me, I find that the entire argument for ID is based on your personal incredulity . It isn’t difficult to attain complex system ‘bits’. Just look at how slime mold with no brains can take its own ‘decision’, navigate complex maze etc.

I think a lot of pseudo science has confused ID supporters.

[quite]This might explain BS77:

Six novel aspects of Christianity may be significant for the emergence of schizophrenia—an omniscient deity, a decontexualised self, ambiguous agency, a downplaying of immediate sensory data, and a scrutiny of the self and its reconstitution in conversion.

On reflection, I think this is crossing a line: whatever I think of ba77 & co, I don't think that mental illness should be a diagnosis. There is still a stigma around mental health, and comments like this only help to reinforce this.
