Surprised at the contentious tone of many threads.

Postby prmystic » Fri Jan 22, 2016 6:34 pm

Hi,

I came back into the forums after a long break, and I am really surprised at the strong language, lack of respect and lack of civility I find here.

And saddened.

Agree but only the crank stuff seems to generate any discussion at all.
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

Or maybe "crank" is a smear term that means "We can't acknowledge that might be valid without abandoning our core axioms, so nobody else is allowed to, either. And if they do, we'll raise holy hell until they fall in line with the rest of us right-thinkers"

These are missionary types obsessed with trying to herd everybody else back inside the concept box they feel safe in.

Apparently somebody in school convinced them they were ordained as the Guardians of not only knowledge but of epistomology, and they take this mission very seriously.

Except for EP getting cranky sometimes (he's old & entitled), ALL of the static here comes directly from this. Most of it their own doing, and the rest of it in the responses they provoke by their attitude.

When you are dealing with someone whose idea of a reasoned rebuttal is mockery, you are dealing with an idiot.

That needed said.

Like conspiracy "theorists" ( which is a dreadful misuse of the word ) any one who refutes or resists the "conspiracy" is defined as being part of it.

For myself, I'm sick of hearing about Velikovsky, and Sitchin, and Von Daniken and the guy with the hair, etc. I will not take anything those kooks say seriously.

I outlined the missionary fascist attitude of the would-be gatekeepers.

And elicited two perfect examples of it in response. People determined that only their construal of reality is entitled to a hearing. All others must be suppressed -- forceably if necessary.

And one of the two responders is a "moderator." That's pretty Orwellian. :lol:

"Moderator." Sure. And War is peace. And freedom is slavery. And ignorance is strength.

Now I cordially invite you to have a good look at your own thought processes :

You evaded the list of multiple recent rebuttals and refutations which made a mockery of your "When you are dealing with someone whose idea of a reasoned rebuttal is mockery, you are dealing with an idiot." ,the comment obviously doesn't apply to those who are opposed to your views ,but does seem to fit your own approach ,see below .


I also outlined the missionary attitude of the true believers who fail to provide evidence and generally respond with " some generalised “all X is crap” and your'e all nuts to believe it” followed a bunch of emoticons ,which seems to be what passes for discussion from some ."

Which you responded to with "Groupthink is Happythink ! :mrgreen:" a perfect example of what I had just highlighted

Your tin foil hat brigade is short on evidence, uni.

I have to think you like it that way.
