It's official - Swami names heir apparent
    #4262635 - 06/06/05 05:19 AM (11 years, 5 months ago)

While everyone makes worthwhile contributions to our favorite forum; only one fully captures the "Spirit of Swami" (S.O.S.) without actually emulating me (a must)! I will not list all the Honorable Mentions and Runner-ups as everyone knows who they are and all were considered and also worthy of carrying on the torch. I also know that we have all superseded ego here and that no one will feel slighted.

I hereby name Diploid to carry on as my spiritual successor for the following qualities/reasons:

1. He is a strong and regular presence here.

2. He is scientifically literate.

3. He is persistent in not letting ill-thought out and poorly supported claims stand unchallenged.

4. He is well-versed in the rules of logical debate.

5. He has good wit and humor.

6. He bribed me with "goodies" - er, I mean he offered me "prasad" in the tradition of the East.

The proof is in the pudding.

Swami - I believe your next line should be...

I would like to add as number 7. He keeps his mind open. :mushroom2:

I'd be happy not to think in absolutes if you link me to an example of someone changing their opinion in the middle of a discussion

I heard Swami do it. Not in the middle but after reflection on something Jiggy said. :heart: :mushroom2:

an open mind is a full head that acts like it is empty

Meaning, you collect information and know a lot, but take non of it for granted

Wow, I wake up this morning to check in, and I'm left speachless. Thank you! I guess you liked the goodies... uh, I mean... the prasad.  :tongue:

1) You can't get married to your spouse who is the same sex as you.
2) You can't have an abortion no matter how much you don't want a child.
3) You can't have a certain plant in your possession or you'll get locked up with a rapist and a murderer.

4) We need a smaller, less-intrusive government.

That's a good choice. Diploid is an intelligent poster, and is rather effective at arguing pseudoscience with logic.

I was gonna bring several loaves of BNB to Burning Man and the next Shroomery Gathering, but because of all the jokes; you people will never get to taste the ambrosiac nature of my home baking. :razz:
