Why is it?
    #1663312 - 06/26/03 03:46 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Why is it that anyone who questions the validity of the (God I'm tired of such reductionist dualities) "believer's" claims etc., is also automatically percieved as being uptight/uninformed/"not yet ready"/whatever?

Honestly.

Do I have to upload video of me not giving a fuck?
Do i have to go to your house, knock on your door, and greet you with an impromptu performance of your favorite Sesame Street song?
Do I have to remind you of silly shit like the time I was banned from the mall for shouting through a bullhorn?

What's it gonna take for you to break this stereotype?

I prefer videos of people getting a fuck. :wink: :wink:

Seriously, though, this question seems a little ironic.  You must give a fuck if you felt strongly enough to make a thread about it.

My opinion...

Eh, who cares what people think?  :undecided:

Just be  :cool:

maybe this is the time when you should speak your mind about certain people. so they may know what exactly you percieve and how that relates. cause for me i guess i must be retarded. this is why i think it might be alright to flame.

cause if you want to call me an ignorant fuck for not seeing a simple truth, than i think if im being an arrogant asshole, i should be notified of it. to me that is not a flame, but an attempt to a correction at a problem.

other than that i dont know what you posted about. and thought i jjust might say something, cause for one reason or another i feel the need to try and understand what you are saying.


or maybe.... we should all have a McGRIDDLE. cut the Mac RIDDLES, and have a good ole time.

Yeah... I don't give a fuck, IN GENERAL.

I actually DO care about that bastards of S&P... and if we're going to communicate, I think false perceptions (due to whatever) inhibit constructive discussions (a perfect example).


However, I DO own a labcoat (I am/was required to wear it in a few labs). But it's covered with random scribblings, grill stains (I used it when I was the "Cookin' Chemist" one warm afternoon a few years back), and whatnot.

Don't listen to what any of these Sesame Street cultists have to say - the bottom line is YOU'RE NOT READY YOU UN-EVOLVED NON-CONFORMIST! JOIN US IN OUR JOURNEY INTO HYPERSPACE... *cough*

Send me that video of you giving a fuck and I'll market it on E-bay for you with 75% of all profits going to yourself.

What kind of "believer's" claims are you referring to? Claims that concsciousness and intentionality can exist outside a person's brain, or claims that an invisible rogue planet passed by here a month ago and slowed down the Earth's rotation without anyone noticing? Or all claims, only some claims, or none of the above?

{For the sake of comprehension I will also use reductionist dualities...}

Believer: "I just had an encounter with aliens, they told me the holy gnome king was the creator of crack cocaine and sold it to the CIA for truck-loads of golden UFOs, which contained microscopic alien life that awakened and used the king as a tool to subtley monopolize the entire gnome kingdom, which in turn leaked through into human perception in the form of such events as the creation of capitalism, which supports the ever-expanding gnome/alien hybrid race.."

Skeptic#1- "Show me proof, then I will believe your claim."

Skeptic#2- "That is impossible. Aliens NOR gnomes even exist! You hallucinated the entire thing, go take some medication!"

^^No matter how logical or reasonable skeptic #2's statement is, I still disagree with it.

No one can say what is possible or impossible!  :tongue2:
(not even science) :shocked:

:nut:

You think whatever you want think, so do other people think what ever they want think, every one thinks they are right and the others are wrong.
Look to your self for your answer, you have your belief system and you believe you are right and the rest or most of the board is wrong ( I am not criticizing you we all do this, typical monkey behavior).
So one side tries to convince the other into there ways and the others resist??. that?s how wars are started.
What do you care if people say that you are ?not ready? etc, unless you are seeking validation of your own belief system?
Every one has the right to think, believe and do what ever they want, as long as your action doesn?t interfere with the actions of your fellow humans?. I mean monkeys.

ME: false perceptions...inhibit constructive discussions

It was only a few words. I didn't think it was that hard to comprehend.


RebelSteve:
Skeptic#1- "Show me proof, then I will believe your claim."

So you DO or DO NOT have a problem with this statement?

Skeptic#2- "That is impossible. Aliens NOR gnomes even exist! You hallucinated the entire thing, go take some medication!"
Few here use the word impossible (do a search).
I prefer the term "improbable".

I don't. It's akin to what I myself would state in response to such a claim.  :wink:

I never pointed any fingers, I was referring mostly to the fundamental 'closed-minded' black-and-white Experts that think they govern scientific Truth. :tongue2:

Improbable is a good term, just be careful.... it doesn't have the best eyes.  :eek:

Sir, all we have are probabilities.

The only truth in real science is, quite simply, "that which works".
