Henry Giroux pulled back the veil of normality for me, going beyond my intellectual grasp of our culture's  violence and hate to a heavy visceral horror of our situation. …Continue

"Ruth, in Pareto's words I saw more than a suggestion; I saw a warning of danger. To apply his warning, ask if any of what Giroux said affected you emotionally. BTW, your intention is certainly political."

Tooth-Level Micromanagement

Posted on September 19, 2017 at 4:30pm 2 Comments

You know how some religions try to micromanage your life - like press your head to the ground 45 times a day and eat this not that. You thought a secular lifestyle would liberate you?

Today I had to replace my electric toothbrush. The only models available with circular action are designed for corporate micromanagement of my brushing technique. There are none without such "features".

A helpful on-handle timer stutters every 30 seconds to let you know when it’s time…

The Past 5 GOP Presidents Have Used Fraud and Treason to Steer Themselves to Electoral Victory

Ford and Bush Sr. aren't directly accused here, just the benefactors of systemic corruption. Bush Jr.'s illegitimate  elevation is already widely known. The Nixon and Reagan treasonous deals with enemies surprised me.

History suggests – even if treason can be demonstrated –…

Poo Fools (us all)

Posted on December 25, 2011 at 2:01pm 47 Comments

Day after day I see Atheist Nexus members argue scripture details, spreading theistic memes here, without realizing their self-betrayal. Memetics still seems, to most, an abstract intellectual debate. We can't grasp religion as an infective agent. We can't see ourselves as merely copying machines for viruses.…

Thank you Randall and Ruth. Happy to be here. Missed my first meeting last Sunday evening but hope to make it next. Are you'll coming in September?
How do I look for famous visiting guest speakers when they come to Toronto.
Regards to you both.

It's part of Jeff Session's renewal of the failed War on Drugs and DARE program. Anybody that is accused or arrested of a drug related violation can have their assets confiscated. It is a huge civil rights violation since it doesn't require a conviction. Some police departments have been accused of using it for profit and Trump is a big fan of it. It's all over the news today. Some states have banned it without a conviction. A persons car or house can be taken all without a conviction.

I dunno, calling the standard model pseudoscience, saying that the LHC fails every time, and accusing everyone who supports the Big Bang theory of selling propaganda to the media and ignoring the published literature ... seems pretty ballistic to me.

He's attacking the ideas at the beginning there, not me ... thus the part where I stated "ballistic attack of subject."  The insult at the end is the part that is a form of ad hominem.  "You just want to believe, so I'm not going to waste my time giving you any evidence for my claims," is essentially an attack on my intellectual rigor, and he explicitly refused to address the actual subject.  What would you call that, other than an ad hominem attack?

I called him out on storming off in a huff and refusing to address what I said, after he stormed off, in this most recent exchange about him not understanding what words mean.  That's not an ad hominem against him, since he refused to provide me with an argument to address ... which was my point, after all.

And sure, Tom is argumentative.  No problem there.  The problem is that he regularly displays some of the worst intellectual cowardice that I've encountered on here.  I've talked to several other people on here who have had the same sorts of problems with him, in regards to both his anti-Banger crusade and other subjects.

Tom is/was (he's retired) a freaking engineer, which he seems to think makes him an authority on theoretical physics, such that he doesn't have to back up his hyperbolic statements with material from people who actually know what they're talking about.
