A little light entertainment


It’s another day of flying about for me (and tomorrow, there’s even more flying across the Atlantic), so here’s something to chew over: My Telekinesis, a site dedicated to explaining how to do all kinds of magical things with the power of your brain. It even has instructions! I was all keen on trying to levitate while I wait for the next leg of my flight, but the first step I was supposed to take was to “open my third eye”. I’ve only got two. I don’t think it was fair of the author to lead us cripples on like that.

I also noticed that the author had to explain that his technique works best when you’re asleep. Nice — I should contribute an article explaining my amazing mental power, called “dreaming”.

Being the kind of guy I am, I jumped straight to the article about evil powers. It wasn’t very helpful.

    Dark Bomb

First take all of your energy and convert it into darkness, if you dont have energy then you should draw mana from the darkness. Then lift your hands over your head and pull all the darkness energy into your hands. You should do this until it is feeling very heavy. Then make it unstable by making it to where it will explode on contact. To do this simply imagine it like a bomb. Then throw it hard against a target or down on the ground. It will hurt you and everything else in its way.

It’s got 350 comments, and they aren’t all “Bwahahahahaha!” There are people enthusing over using this power against bunny rabbits and people — somehow, the idea of some nerd concentrating really hard and waving his hands at me (or a bunny) doesn’t scare me very much.

    I tried a darkness bomb against a spider, didn’t do a damned thing. Maybe because they’re already laden with dark energy or whatever, but what would I want the power of darkness for other than killing spiders anyway?

  2. IslandBrewer says

    I think you need to invest at least 21 points into the Dark Energy skill tree before you can put the Dark Bomb on your quickbar.

    Wait, what? You’re talking about something else?

  3. sundiver says

    Steve Wright tried moving a carpet in his livingroom using telekinesis. He said the carpet hasn’t budged. The rest of his house is gone. And Buddy Hackett was able to raise a glass of ice to room temperature in eight hours!!

  4. Ariaflame, BSc, BF, PhD says

    I actually did have a dream once that I had telekinesis. Was awfully disappointed when I woke up and couldn’t remember how to do it.

    Not that I actually remember doing anything particularly nifty with it in the dream anyway.

    I’ve noticed — especially at my age — that my hands and arms do start to feel very heavy after I’ve held them over my head for a while. I just didn’t know it was the concentrated power of darkness energy. This is very helpful!

    Bunnies beware.

    It sounds Einsteinian. Mana is obviously equivalent to mass. C may not be the speed of light though. It could be Credulity, the number of woo believers in California. Much valuable research remains to be done….

    some nerd concentrating really hard and waving his hands

    Shit, I do this just about every day. Sometimes at the same time. Often having eaten something very spicy for which my palate was unprepared. I’m practically Professor Charles Xavier, me.

  8. horrabin says

    To do this simply imagine it like a bomb.

    Most TK noobs screw this part up by imagining their dark bomb like an artichoke or a shoe lace.

    It will hurt you and everything else in its way.

    So it’s really more of a dark suicide vest.

    I watched the “electrokinesis” video. Someone’s been watching too much Naruto!

    You can tell the author is serious because you don’t even get a saving throw.

  12. Roving Rockhound, collector of dirt says

    I used to have lots of dreams as a kid where I was flying. I also used to wake up on the floor quite frequently. The only explanation is that I was, in fact, levitating – I just didn’t have the landing down.

    Either I’ve grown out of my powers (maybe the third eye has gotten as bad as the other two?) or I’ve improved my landing.

  13. Ogvorbis: strawmadhominem says

    but the first step I was supposed to take was to “open my third eye”.

    When I was in middle school, one’s arsehole was sometimes referred to as either the ‘squinty eye’ or the ‘third eye.’

    Strangely appropriate.

  14. robro says

    As I’ve gotten older, I’ve become increasingly telekinetic. Practically every time I reach for something, it flies out of my hands making it difficult to do almost anything. The folks at a psychic school I attended many years ago (true but long story) often said that telekinesis can be a real problem because of this sort of thing. And I’m living proof that they were right. Oops…my bowl of oatmeal just flew out of my hands. Damn! I mean…ooommm…aaahh

  15. unclefrogy says

    I used to be able to move things with my mind only too back in the day but I don’t use drugs any more and seem to have lost my third-eye glasses.

    First take all of your energy and convert it into darkness,

    You can convert plain old boring energy into trendy, chic dark energy? Dayum. Write it up and publish as fast as you can. A Nobel awaits.

  18. damonbarth says

    I got a good laugh out of this then remembered all those Sundays spent in church as a kid eating the flesh of zombie Jesus and all the sudden Dark Bombs didn’t seem so far fetched.

  19. Antiochus Epiphanes says

    I wouldn’t try the dark bomb. It’s an opening for malware. I’m pretty sure my lap-top is fucked.

  20. flapjack says

    So all this time those evangelical preachers were talking about being filled with the holy spirit, what they were actually filled with was darkness in concentrated bursts…

  21. baruchtzairy says

    Reminds me of a crappy sci-fi movie I watched a while ago – one of the superheroes could turn invisible, but only when no one was looking.

  22. Loqi says

    Someone tried the dark bomb on me once. No matter how hard he focused and squinted and strained and generally looked like he badly needed a laxative, nothing happened. It turns out I have really well developed psychic defenses.

  23. Loqi says

    With all the talk of opening your third eye in order to drop a dark bomb, I wonder if that site’s readers realize the whole thing is one giant poop joke.

  24. F says

    OK, so, convert energy into darkness. I understand how refrigeration converts energy into less heat by using energy to remove energy from another system, but photons don’t usually hang around very long, even in a reflective optical cavity. So I have to assume that this means “convert energy into no energy” in some general way, removing energy from some ill-defined closed system of which only some people are aware.

    But wait – if you don’t have enough energy to create darkness, you are supposed to transfer energy from the darkness to … make darkness? Wut? Draw energy from a system of no/low energy to make a system of no/low energy you didn’t have the energy to create in the first place?

    Telekinesis is hard.

  25. says

    The exchange particle for this sort of new-age energy is not the photon, but the futon. It can hang around for much longer, since it tends to absorb atoms rather than being absorbed itself.

    I have a related power of manifesting whatever I want out of nothing. I make a few arcane inscriptions and invocations in the etherworld and the objects of desire appear magically on my doorstep the next day.

    Pretend you’re in DBZ then? On that note, would ripping off my shirt and grunting at my opponent for an hour or so help?

    That’s not a dark bomb. It’s a Shishi Hokodan, or Houkoudan depending on what translation scheme you use. See Ranma 1/2 for details.

    Sure you’re not thinking of the TV show Misfits? One of the guys did that, though he got better at it and could do it at will by the end of the first season.

  32. richardh says

    Not just telekinesis, but time travelchronoportation! Such insight:

    I have accomplished this three times. The first time was six minutes into the future, the second was eighteen hours, and the third was seventeen months […] The second time, I got a serious headache from the eighteen hour gap. That little adventure may have damaged my mind in ways yet unknown.
    […]
    To accomplish chronoportation, you must first learn how
    to manipulate the quantum mechanical wave function. I will not bore you with the details of said function-look it up. Once you have educated yourself, begin reading this again.

    The commenters soon put him straight, though:

    Clearly you have no background in Quantum Mechanics, other wise you would know manipulating the wave function of a single quark would do you no good. The function could not be expanded because a single particle could not support such a large field without an annihilation destruction occurring, which would result in the death of the caster and a possible chain reaction resulting in the creation of exotic matter.

    So don’t go meddling with the wave functions of single quarks!

  33. Draken says

    This comment on rationalbrain is priceless:

    Rationalbrain, i never said i cant prove it [telekinesis] to you, i said i wont, since you could prove it to yourself with practice. You ridicule our claims, calling them “obviously false” and then expect US to prove what YOU want to know. It doesnt work that way man. You wanna learn science, you go to class and study. You want to learn how to manipulate the magnetic field around your body, go study how to do it. It is not our responsibility to prove things to you that you could prove to yourself.

    “I can do a fivefold backward somersault from standstill. I’m not going to demonstrate it, though; you can teach it yourself to prove it”.

    If you attempt to apply to be on the JREF challenge, you have to submit a video to them if you make a claim. If you prove youre legit, you dont get on the show.

    ‘Course.

  34. mcwaffle says

    @5

    I very routinely have telekinesis in dreams. It’s always only effective at extremely close range for very light objects, like grabbing a pen from a few inches away. The worst part is that I DO remember how I did it, it just doesn’t work. Same thing with teleporting/jumping back in time a few minutes.

  35. erodinbladewin says

    Draken, you can choose not to prove yourself if you dont want to, for whatever reason. I have free will, i dont have to do things as you expect me to. You have the right to not believe in me because i refuse to prove myself, but your little point there was invalid.

    I also ask you attempt to apply to that show. Seem legit, you dont get in, seem illegit, you dont get in. Seem like an illusionist that people will denounce as fake, theres your ticket. Im no illusionist, so i wouldnt get anywhere near the set.

  36. erodinbladewin says

    Umm yeah, i changed my account name months ago … friend of mine changed it when i was making dinner one night.

  37. erodinbladewin says

    One more thing for now. Im loving the people here who think JREF is a show that will REALLY publish REAL results. They wont, its a mockery, and anyone whos actually been involved with it knows it. Youre not smart, stop acting like it.

    Also loving the people who have absolutely no concept of science and yet are saying stuff like teleportation doesnt work. If i recall correctly, scientists have teleported atoms with machines. Its not realistic to say you could teleport your physical body on your own, because of the energy transfer, factors of mass, shape, etc. You know nothing about this, stop trying to seem smart.

    The people here make sites like MYTK look worse than the fluff does. Whats funny is whoever came to MYTK after i suggested it said I (Ravi) was the only guy who got how the science behind it would even make it possible, given the right e circumstances. Funny that my comment is “priceless” aka seen as stupid by some wannabe smart guy, but im seen as a rational, intelligent person by someone from Rationalbrains side. Take the hint.

    Listen guys, stop the blogs about us, or youll be hearing from WordPress legal division. Opinions are fine, unless you include slander and defamation of character. ou have absolutely no proof any of this stuff is not possible given the right circumstances. You pass your opinions off like they are written in stone somewhere. Guess what, they arent, youre not as smart as you think you are. Leave the MYTK subject alone.

    erodinbladewin, you don’t know the difference between quantum teleportation and teleportation, do ya? :)

  41. erodinbladewin says

    You dont know the difference between what you think i think, and what i actually think.

    erodinbladewin, you’ve stated that you think quantum teleportation involves teleporting actual atoms, and that people here* have absolutely no concept of science.

    You should know thats a prerequisite to moving objects … as objects aremasses of atoms. My word, see what you can realize when you take your head out of your butt.

    Ive been doing metaphysical stuff for about 11 years. Im 22. First known act of precognition (sensing the future) was when i had thisd strong gut feeling id never hear a song on the radio again. Lo and behold, ive never heard it on the radio again ^_^. I researched experiences like that, precog came up. Theres a chance it was pure coincidence, but i dont believe it was, becaue it wasnt just a thought, it was accompanied by a strong gut feeling that made the thought seem like knowledge, instead of imagination. Every time ive had those feelings, theyve been correct. Its called instincts. Learning your instints is a prerequisite practice to sensing, then comes manual manipulation of energy using your body.

    All through those practices, you eventually find that energy with no defined form, as in not some sound wave, or kinetic force, does not travel along some pathway, it just moves from one area to the next. This ties into the states thing. The states thing are the first stages of prepearing an atom for teleportation.

    Id appreciate it if youd at least attempt to point out some science thing as your reasoning for doubting what i say.

    Yeah, because everything on wikipedia is actually correct? Its not bias, as i had no beliefs about the experience. I didnt even know what it was until i looked it up. So, no beliefs, no bias. Try again.

    That which is asserted, like this, without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence. *POOF*. Everything you can’t and won’t document, but talk about is dismissed in a flash. Welcome to science, where documentation rules…

    Every time ive had those feelings, theyve been correct. Its called instincts.

    No, its called cognitive bias, where you ignore the false positives. Welcome to science, where undocumented assertions are lies and bullshit…

    Id appreciate it if youd at least attempt to point out some science thing as your reasoning for doubting what i say.

    You make the claims, you supply the proof for your claims, or you lie and bullshit. We don’t have to refute, you have to supply the evidence. Welcome to science, where you are wrong until you demonstrate yourself right with documented evidence, like Randy filming you….

    erodinbladewin:

    You show up with a claim that you have supernatural powers (or whatever other term you wish to use). You have made the claim. It is an extraordinary claim. And you are offering no evidence for your claim at all. You have presented the same amount of evidence that I have presented for the giant invisible porcupine that lives in my basement (his name is Hugo). That is to say zero. Where is your evidence for this claim?

  55. Brownian says

    Seriously, wheres the intelligent people?

    What a fucking shitty excuse for a psychic.

    This link should explain what’s going on in your head, BTW.

  56. John Morales says

    erodinbladewin, you’d have done better “doing” physics than metaphysics (not that you evince any understanding of the latter, either).

    All through those practices, you eventually find that energy with no defined form, as in not some sound wave, or kinetic force, does not travel along some pathway, it just moves from one area to the next.

    Oh dear. “Kinetic force”? ;)

    Id appreciate it if youd at least attempt to point out some science thing as your reasoning for doubting what i say.

    I don’t need science to doubt what you say, since your claim invokes no science (and is not what the news article you adduced actually claims).

    Everything? I’ve no idea. The article on confirmation bias, however? Yes. It’s a basic concept in science. If you don’t like Wikipedia, try going here or here – you’ll find exactly the same thing.

    Its not bias, as i had no beliefs about the experience. I didnt even know what it was until i looked it up. So, no beliefs, no bias.

    Who says what you believe has to have a name before you believe it? The point is that unless you’re thorough, you only remember the times the data supported your theory; in your case, that you ‘foresaw’ something correctly. Can you say how many times you predicted something that didn’t happen, and compare the two numbers?

    Try again.

    Why? You haven’t even come to close refuting me yet.

  58. Brownian says

    What’s with the half-literate fucks showing up here, asking about the science, and then dismissing explanations that include well-known psychological tendencies like confirmation bias?

    I mean, why would a fucking psychic not understand what Wowbagger (and everyone else who understands the term, for fuck’s sake) meant by confirmation bias? Isn’t knowing what other people are thinking (or what’s going to happen) exactly the claim?

  59. erodinbladewin says

    Mr redhead, science process for acknowledging what is and is not proof is ignorant, it allows no room for methods of proving oneself that dont show 100% of the evidence. Most of the ecivdence about this stuff isnt physical. Otherwise, i agree with your points about the proof. Your points, however, dont prove me wrong about what i can and cannot do.

    You know, if i had the means with which to document the radio thing, when i was 11 years old, and the best thing i could get is a walkman i didnt take on the trip to the store with me, i would have this proof you wish for. However, i was not in the practice of keeping a diary, or recording my thoughts, life, etc, in any other way.

    Proof is always subjective, no matter how objectively you present it. Redhead, i applaud you for your comment, as its the best retort ive seen so far, even with the fact you presented no facts about science itself.

    I do have a couple disagreements with what you said. One, instincts and cognitive bias are two different things. Two, Randi James is playing a pretty intricate game with the whole proof of the metaphysical thing. You have absolutely NO idea what will really happen in the JREF show. Ive applied, and so have some of my friends. A couple of us told our real stories, the other 4 told fake stories, and 2 acted like stage magicians. The two “stage magicians” got accepted, the other 6 of us did not. Maybe you should actually think about some of what you say before you say it. Oh, wait, its human nature to disregard anything not proven to your face.

    There are various methods of proving oneself in metaphysical subjects. Most are direct physical ways, others are controlled practice sessions, which we tell 1-2 or more people about what we are going to attempt. Those people do not tell either of the practitioners. At the end, we compare results. If you still think the confirmed experiences are bias, imagiantion, schizophrenia, whatever, then you need to actually take a shot at one of these sessions. Metaphysics is largely unrealized by physical science. Welcome to metaphysics, where your physical science is invalid when it comes to mental abilities, and ones for other dimensions.

  60. Brownian says

    Its not bias, as i had no beliefs about the experience. I didnt even know what it was until i looked it up. So, no beliefs, no bias.

    Proof is always subjective,

    Citation needed, or you are a proven liar and bullshitter. Welcome to real science.

    There are various methods of proving oneself in metaphysical subjects.

    First you must show conclusive physical evidence for what you claim. PERIOD, END OF STORY. Your evidence, not assertions, which are dismissed as non-evidence…

  64. Ogvorbis says

    Read this carefully as, if you continue with dribble like this^ it will be repeated.

    Science is not about proof. Proofs are mathematics, not science. Science is about evidence. Evidence which can be replicated. Evidence which can be observed and measured. Evidence which exists outside of one persons mind.

    Got that? Science looks for evidence. Not proof.

    Every time ive had those feelings, theyve been correct. Its called instincts.

    Yeah, confirmation bias. A well-known, well-documented and very common mistake.
    As a tool for finding out how the universe works at its deeper levels, instincts and intuition have been shown time and again to be entirely unreliable. Of course heavy objects fall faster than lighter ones. Of course the earth isn’t moving.
    And history, and the world even today, is full of people becoming absolutely convinced of the truth of an idea, in their minds and guts and whatever, despite clear, endlessly duplicated evidence of its falseness.
    It’s why we test ideas under controlled conditions, repeat those tests with different observers, and why we make our hypotheses make successful predictions. Because mere instinct and intuition and gut feelings are not the proper tools for understanding things beyond everyday human experience. Which pretty much includes anything outside our sensory perception–things that are too small to see, energy at frequencies too big or small for our senses, things that are as massive as galaxies, or move near the speed of light.
    And the universe has a lot of important stuff going on at those levels, to which your instincts will never be a reliable guide.
    So when you come here and claim that your instincts allow you to circumvent or break laws of physics demonstrated repeatedly, you must come armed with serious evidence. Up front. Because it’s far more likely that you’re lying, full of shit, and/or deluded.

  69. erodinbladewin says

    You didnt present anything in science, you claimed i misunderstand words in real time.

    Confirmation bias is real, but the article on it missed the part where instincts are always right barring prior beliefs, perceptions, etc, about the situation. Its not fully correct, thus what i said is true. Learn to logic.

    Wowbagger, i refuted you with one simple point. I had absolutely no beliefs about what the gut feeling was. I had abosolutely no data to bias myself on. All i knew was that i had a feeling i wouldnt hear the song on the radio, again. I just dismissed it when it happened. Ive been logical since before i was 11, apparently, because i didnt draw any conclusions, have any beliefs, etc, about the situation, until i looked it up.

    Feralboy, how about the part where instincts are always right when theres no prior information to cause bias?

  71. Brownian says

    Yeah, confirmation bias. A well-known, well-documented and very common mistake.

    Well-known to everybody but psychics, apparently.

    Doesn’t say much for their ability to access the esoteric regions of metaphysics when they’re oblivious to what even the Muggles know.

  72. erodinbladewin says

    My instincts have been accurate 100% of the time. Its so obviously confirmation bias when theres no prior info to create the bias. Im done here, you idiots cant differentiate science from a hole in your ass.

    If rationalBrain wants to discuss anything, ill be glad to oblige, but the rest of you, minus redhead to a degree, are absolutely fucking morons

  73. Ogvorbis says

    Confirmation bias is real,

    Yes.

    but the article on it missed the part where instincts are always right barring prior beliefs, perceptions, etc, about the situation. Its not fully correct, thus what i said is true.

    Instincts are always right? Always? You have got to be kidding me. Bullshit. Instinct, your gut feeling, is an absolutely shitty way to figure anything out. Do you really think that Ostrom figured out the relationship between certain dinosaurs and birds by instinct? Do you think that the atomic bomb was created through instinct? Or you computer? Did you learn to do long division by instinct? Or balance a cheque book? Did you drive perfectly the first time through your instinct?

  74. Nerd of Redhead, Dances OM Trolls says

    You didnt present anything in science, you claimed i misunderstand words in real time.

    We don’t have to refute you, liar and bullshitter, you must evidence yourself, and you haven’t, and can’t. We know that…

    part where instincts are always right barring prior beliefs, perceptions, etc, about the situation.

    Why should we believe a proven liar and bullshitter without a citation to back up their assertion…And no citation tacitly acknowledges their lies and bullshit…

    i refuted you with one simple point.

    No, you never provided anything other than your lying and bullshitting OPINION. Refutation requires citations…

    how about the part where instincts are always right when theres no prior information to cause bias?

    Assertion without evidence, dismissed without evidence *POOF*. Liar and bullshitter without presenting any evidence, and you know it…

  75. says

    Feralboy, how about the part where instincts are always right when theres no prior information to cause bias?

    Simple. You’re talking crap.

    Ive been logical since before i was 11, apparently, because i didnt draw any conclusions, have any beliefs, etc, about the situation, until i looked it up. Its unbiased proof, and youre one of the halfbaked morons that was mentioned.

    Oh, you looked it up. Oh, well, that settles it. I take back everything I said. I didn’t realize you were so rigorous.

  76. Brownian says

    Feralboy, how about the part where instincts are always right when theres no prior information to cause bias?

    The prior information is the prediction, shit-for-brains.

    Try to follow, dipshit. I dream/think/have a strong feeling about my friend John one morning. I see John later that day. I say to myself, “Wow, how amazing is it that I dreamt/thought/had a strong feeling about John this morning and then actually saw him? This must mean something.” What I don’t take into account is all the times I dreamt/thought/had a strong feeling about Sarah and Luke and Meaghan and Rita and didn’t see them.

    That’s confirmation bias, and it’s often applied retroactively. It’s a human tendency, and one science actually tries to counter with experimental methods.

    You even hint that you grok this concept when you wrote: “others are controlled practice sessions, which we tell 1-2 or more people about what we are going to attempt. Those people do not tell either of the practitioners. At the end, we compare results”, but then you seemed to be unaware that such a technique, when applied rigorously and with documentation of successes and failures, is designed to counter confirmation bias, among other things.

    But, if you’re psychic, then why did you need me to write all that? Shouldn’t you have known, if not about confirmation bias, but that we were going to invoke it as an explanation? And then explain it, when you clearly misunderstood (or were just unclear in your writing)?

    Learn to logic.

    This is so awesome, I don’t know how to describe it. I wish this would fit on a bumper sticker.

  77. erodinbladewin says

    Redhead, how about the part where not proving myself to you doesnt make me wrong or right? Saying im right or wrong without proof is retarded. Youre presenting bias by saying im wrong because you dont believe in it. Youre awesome.

    Feral, you missed my point. I had an experience i drew no conclusions and had no opinions about. I looked up the experience to see if anyone else had had one like it. It was called precognition. Precognition stems from the instincts, unless its manually done. Then it stems from skill with ESP. No prior information, no bias. Your theory was proven wrong, take it like an adult.

    Redhead, i can refute you on my own, merely by stating facts. If you think otherwise, you need to take a class on logic.

  78. Brownian says

    My instincts have been accurate 100% of the time.

    Except for all the times they weren’t, which you wouldn’t know since you didn’t keep a diary or anything like that.

    Confirmation bias.

    Im done here, you idiots cant differentiate science from a hole in your ass.

    Of course we can. Science keeps records of its predictions and observations, assholes don’t.

  79. Brownian says

    merely by stating facts

    Like asserting that you’re correct 100% of the time?

    I can do that too. Watch.

    I’ve never met a psychic. I’ve met you.
    Therefore, you’re no psychic.

    Logic that.

  83. erodinbladewin says

    Brownian, calling a prediction bias takes the cake here. Predictions themselves dont make bias, the information that goes through our minds afterwards does. Have you ever thought scientists could possibly be wrong? I mean, if i say 1+1+1=3, im correct, but if science only finds 1+1=2, its still correct, but doesnt tell the whole story.

    My my so much linear thought out of you all that i could glue the lines together and make a sword.

    Being psychic doesnt mean you understand what you experience. I had no idea what the experience was, so i learned about it. Honestly, considering the accuracy rating, the experiences spell out instincts, and not coincidence or some form of bias. Confirmation bias and instincts are two different things in science. Science wrongfully says that confirmation bias is correct, while instincts are unreliable. While they can be unreliable, they arent in individuals who actually bother to think like a strategist, instead of a follower. You all are followers, you tout others “facts” without bothering to find out if there may be more to the story or not. Sheeple do not win the day, my friend.

  87. erodinbladewin says

    Saying it doesnt make it true, it being true makes it true. You took words, put them in a sentence, and acted like you have a point. Ignorance, bro. I just logicced it.

    I have proof of this stuff, and im trying to share a more educated set of facts. Im sorry you all cant think outside your box. Science seeks proof and evidence. Science seeks what is real, and does it by gathering the bits and pieces to form a conclusion.

    Here’s another article you need to read – about special pleading. Confirmation bias affects any situation where you claim there is evidence supports your theory; you have to include the data on how often it didn’t work as well. Your saying that your beliefs are ‘different’ doesn’t cut it, I’m afraid.

    I had absolutely no beliefs about what the gut feeling was. I had abosolutely no data to bias myself on.

    Irrelevant. You’re claiming it as evidence of your precognitive powers now. You are deliberately ignoring the number of times you have been wrong about something you thought was going to happen, because it would show that your foresight is nothing more than coincidence.

    Read up on the Texas sharpshooter fallacy – it’s the same thing that you’re doing. That you’re doing it retrospectively rather than deliberately doesn’t change that.

    Ive been logical since before i was 11, apparently, because i didnt draw any conclusions, have any beliefs, etc, about the situation, until i looked it up.

    “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”

    Its unbiased proof…

    Sorry, it’s neither unbiased – as I’ve demonstrated with the reference to confirmation bias – nor ‘proof’, since we’re not discussing alcohol or mathematics.

  93. erodinbladewin says

    LOL, i cant believe you guys are stil trying to say your glorious scientists have the whole picture, Man, i thought people on mytk were retarded, you all have the added flavor of not even knowing your scientists only see the 1+1=2 not the existence of 1+1+1=3. theres more to life than what you can see, or even proof physically

    Meetaphysics is a widely used term for physics which you cannot see with the naked eye or machines. Why dont you find the citations for that? Too lazy, or dont want to be proved wrong.

    Im sorry you all cant think outside your box.

  98. Ogvorbis says

    You keep using the term metaphysics. I do not think you know what it actually means:

    Metaphysics is a branch of philosophy concerned with explaining the fundamental nature of being and the world, although the term is not easily defined. Traditionally, metaphysics attempts to answer two basic questions in the broadest possible terms:

    “What is there?”
    “What is it like?”

    Of course, that is the way the term is used in the real world. In your world, the one with the plaid sky, I have no idea.

    [Meta: Damn, this popcorn is good!]

  99. Cipher, OM, MQ says

    erodinbladewin saying “Learn to logic” was far and away the most hilarious thing in this thread.

    Oh hon. You’re out of your depth.

  100. Amphiox says

    Truth is an abstraction that has no existence in reality. Science makes no presence at truth, it approximates truth, because it acknowledges that in the real world absolute Truth cannot be obtained.

    Similarly, “proof” is an abstraction that exists only in imaginary or arbitrarily constructed realms. Science does NOT deal with “proof”, and does not pretend to. It deals with evidence and solely with evidence, and approximates “proof” by accumulating disproof, through a process of elimination.

    Anyone who can say “science is about proof” with a straight face either dorsn’t understand what science is or how science works, or is a liar with an agenda.

  101. erodinbladewin says

    Point taken, Ogvorbis. Ive never seen it used outside the context i stated. My apologies.

  102. Ogvorbis says

    So i have to prove it for it to exist? Bullshit, because if it doeesnt exist until i prove it does, you cant prove it because IT DOESNT EXIST.

    You make the claim, you need to provide evidence (NOT PROOF!!!11!11!!!!!1)

  103. avinious says

    *sigh*
    This is exactly why I tend to stick to the shadows of things, might I mention that all these comments sum up to the same statements over and over again?

    That’s usually ignored but its a psychological thing in which if one hears or reads and mentally picks up a statement over and over again, its held to be true.

    And, for future reference, science isn’t absolute, people used to believe that they’d never be in the air, but the wright brothers decided to try, and voila, we had airplanes.

    Science disproves and reproves itself every year, every month.

    Aswell, Metaphysics is generally mentioned as a philosophy, not the supernatural, I don’t know when or why it became supernatural things.

    This whole situation is annoying, I only came on because I read all this and noticed it all sums up to several similar statements being said over and over again. And in the end, its all “I’m Right, You’re Wrong.”

    Let me see.. The similar statements are: “It’s not real because science says it isn’t.”

    “It’s real because I say so.”

    “This is bullshit.”

    Or something along those lines, atleast, that seems to be how its going.

    …I certainly hope this isn’t too long, nor is it going to get attacked because I’m coming in with absolutely no arguments. Well, we’ll see what happens.

    Just to let you all know, science has become too “book based” and not enough “Hey lets check it out and if it fails, try to find a way.” but, that’s just how it goes, I personally, try to explain whatever I can, and if I can, I intend to try to make something that may explain some of this stuff well enough, but, don’t expect anything, I have too much I’d have to research on making things work properly.

    Of course. So far, I’ve got more evidence that you’re psychic than I do for erodinbladewin. Maybe he or she will make a prediction about it, then listen to it, then tell us if the guess was right. That would be the proper, logical way to do it. We’ll just have to trust that there’s no cheating, and that erodinbladewin could identify the song if he or she ever heard it again.

    Yep, that is one way to separate the liars and bullshitters from truthtellers. And your inability to document and cite your claims tells us which camp you are in. The former…

    Feral, you missed my point.

    That’s “Mr. 12″ to you.

    I had an experience i drew no conclusions and had no opinions about. I looked up the experience to see if anyone else had had one like it. It was called precognition.

    I saw these weird lights in the sky once, and didn’t draw any conclusions. Then I looked it up. It was aliens, the same ones who built the pyramids.
    Seriously, you heard a song, had a thought, a feeling, that you would never hear it again, and a measly 11 years later you’re not only convinced that you’ll evade this song the rest of your life, you think you’ve had a precognitive event? This is really convincing to you, and you expect to convince others of this?
    That’s cute. You’re really cute.
    Although your superpower is kind of…feeble.

    Precognition stems from the instincts, unless its manually done.

    So does my sex life. The manual stuff is just out of boredom.

    Then it stems from skill with ESP. No prior information, no bias. Your theory was proven wrong, take it like an adult.

    Wait, what?
    What is my theory? That you’re idiot who need not be taken seriously?
    Look…you had a feeling about a song that hasn’t even come true yet, really, since you might hear the song again tomorrow, and you’ve since become convinced that it all means you are psychic. And you think you have no bias? And there is no possible way you’ve forgotten about or ignored feelings that didn’t come true?
    And…you think we’re not being scientific because we’re not convinced by an unverified story told by some random person on the internet?
    Oh, you’re an idiot. Really, I looked it up.

  113. erodinbladewin says

    Redhead, you keep claiming im wrong because i dont prove myself right. Are you so stupid you dont know how that a bad practice?

    You should be saying you dont know. As a matter of fact, i agreed the physical abilities are based in manipulating physics with your self. Therefore you have no reason to argue with me on that. Are you arguing just to argue?

    Youre not a real scientist, a real scientist would kick you out of their lab for being so close minded. You didnt even consider what i said, you just said i was wrong. A real scientist would explore my theories with me, not shun them because of past experiences.

  118. avinious says

    Okay, one of the most common things in independent researchers for scientific ideals is not to demand it, sure, asking is a good thing, one of the biggest things however, is to accept potentiality of existence beyond our knowledge.

    To claim something as instantly bogus without evidence of existence is to claim yourself without science. Philosophy is the first form of science, the production of debate and ideas, the potential of existence, the ever curiosity of life and death. What can and cannot be done. This is what it was originally, it is still a science, however, as it is forever the way to generate potentiality.

    Then alchemy, a primitive form of chemistry, open ended and flawed.

    Modern day science is too smug, please, instead of calling yourself a scientist, try to examine its potential existence beyond our grasp at this time, even if it needs to be assisted it could be possible, now couldn’t it?

    Errorblabwit here probably diesn’t realize that all it has managed to do is repeat same series of tired, discredited fallacies that practically every troll before it has tried. With the exact same hilariously self-unaware condescension and pitiful Dunning-Krueger arrogance.

    Same old same old.

    Real science produces useful results in a myriad of fascinating ways.

    The anti-science trolls are always wrong in the exact same set of ways.

    Send it to the TZT, I say. It’s inanity is too boring for a humor thread like this one.

  126. Nerd of Redhead, Dances OM Trolls says

    To claim something as instantly bogus without evidence of existence is to claim yourself without science.

    No, science REQUIRES evidence for validation of cliams.

    Philosophy is the first form of science,

    No, philosophy is mental masturbation unless it is grounded in reality. Which requires evidence. Oh, right, that is science, not bullshitting yourself and others…

  127. consciousness razor says

    No, razor, you should explore but not assume.

    Okay, I’m exploring your comments, and they haven’t offered any evidence so far. How long are you going to keep me waiting?

    It is indeed going in many directions, I am very happy in many of the places it has gone.

    It has however, got many scientists who are jerks and cannot see beyond their subject of interest, that, is where the smugness is at.

    …Science just needs more philosophy in it as well, it’d probably be smooth feeling then. It works, its just rough around the edges still I guess.

    Sorry about that comment. Just personal experience with people who don’t think as much as I’d hoped. Disappointed in it is all.

  129. Cipher, OM, MQ says

    To claim something as instantly bogus without evidence of existence is to claim yourself without science.

    Uh, no.
    That’s not how that works, and it’s also not applicable in this situation. The claims that are being made are testable, and no evidence has been found for them. Evidence has been found for phenomena that explain the experiences related as attempted evidence, though – confirmation bias is one of them.

    P.S.: Cipher, you missed a proof.
    Currency.

    Please elaborate.

    The data in the book comes from people who have done just what others thought impossible, showed it as possible, and generated the circumstances in which one can reproduce fact.

    Not someone who didn’t. Those people aren’t progressive, they are suppression.

    You’re right, but again this is confirmation bias. You do admit that there is such a thing as a claim being impossible or incorrect, right?

    As for 4chan, I’m puzzled as to why you presume that 4chan ought to be your personal army.

  130. John Morales says

    avinious:

    To claim something as instantly bogus without evidence of existence is to claim yourself without science. Philosophy is the first form of science, the production of debate and ideas, the potential of existence, the ever curiosity of life and death.

    No, it works. Period, end of story. The rough edges are only found by those who are left behind because they don’t stay grounded in reality, and just mentally wank.

    Sorry about that comment. Just personal experience with people who don’t think as much as I’d hoped. Disappointed in it is all.

    avinious, educate yourself about the concepts of parsimony and null hypothesis, in both the philosophical and practical senses. Doing do will help avert the foot-in-mouth syndrome you have managed to get yourself infected with.

    Maybe you’ve got psychic powers and maybe not. Happy? I’m not claiming it’s logically impossible for you to have psychic powers.

    Youre a close minded idiuot who thinks they are open minded. Thats one of the worst kinds of stupid.

    I’m open minded once you show me the evidence. I’m closed minded that your OPINION means anything other than your lies and bullshit, because your history here is nothing but lies and bullshit.

  142. avinious says

    Yes, I was talking about the philosophy as such as Socrates, and natural philosophy.

    I am only 18, I have a lot of things to learn, forgive me if I am erring.

    Amph, I’ll look into those.

    I haven’t gotten foot in mouth on this, I simply could be saying things wrong at this time, my understanding hasn’t kicked in, I tend to let my IQ drop around a lot of people.

    I don’t believe in impossibility, only improbability.

    Yes, scientists are specialists in their subject, but they have a tendency to attack anything NOT within their subject, I simply don’t like hearing someone attack something they didn’t learn or attempt to study about, especially when they aren’t professional ones, that’s the biggest annoyance I have met.

    John, thanks, you’re right on that alright. It can be dismissed.

    Yes, I know I have a long way to go, but I’m doing better then you’d think I would right?

    And you still do not understand even one simple idea about how science works. Evidence, not proof! Are you really this fucking stupid?

  144. Amphiox says

    If someone makes a claim without providing evidence, there are two viable mature responses.

    1. If you find the claim interesting, you can take up the burden of providing the evidence the first claimant didn’t . This means that you keep your mouth shut until you’ve done the work and HAVE the evidence to present.

    2. You simply say “sorry, but my time and intellectual resources are limited and valuable, and as you have given me no reason(evidence) to spend this valuable resource considering your claim, I’m going to spend it on other more useful things.”

    To say “maybe, maybe not” is the MOST IMMATURE, and USELESS response conceivable. It’s a waste of your time, breath, and mental energy uttering it, and a waste of my time and mental energy having to listen to it.

    Even ignoring the claim completely and saying absolutely nothing is better.

    That’s the only ‘line of logic’ Nerd has used. That you need evidence if you want your claims to be taken seriously, and not dismissed as the drooling rantings of an unhinged crank.

    Lack of proof is not lack of truth.

    The burden of proof lies on the claimant.

    Here’s a hypothetical: I claim you owe me a million dollars. Is it up to you to prove that you don’t owe me a million dollars, or up to me to prove that you do? Because, by your logic, you have to prove that you don’t – how do you intend to do that?

    Redhead, ill nominate you for a prestigious political position, you talk alot, yet say nothing. Your retort had less intelligence in it than “prove it or be ridiculed, because science demands evidence” Any claim can be proven true or false. My claims arent vague, they just arent claims of complex cells or claims about how a star is formed from gases.

    Evidence is pieces of reality that support a claim, or prove it wrong. By that note, proof would be direct presentation of the claim itself. You dont put pieces together to make these abilities, they have a process, its done as a whole, or its not done. My use of the word proof has been correct.

    You’re almost there. Evidence either supports a claim or it doesn’t. When the evidence fails to support the claim, or there is a lack of evidence that supports the claim, the claim can be rejected.

    That’s what we’re doing with you. You’ve made a claim for which not only is there no evidence, but which has been tested hundreds of times before and provided only evidence against the claim – not to mention revealing many of the claimants to be complete frauds.

    Ergo, your claim is rejected. Stamping your feet won’t change our minds about that; only evidence will.

  187. Ogvorbis says

    DOnt try and push the point back to me like it actually makes me look bad …

    Your refusal to be openminded about what you percieve as your experience makes you look bad. Your consitent inability to understand the difference between proof and evidence makes you look bad. Your whinging makes you look bad.

    Cipher, in your case, retarded is an insult. You have a mental deficiency that inhibits your intelligence. its called being human.

    And your continued use of mental retardation as an insult, despite me, and others, asking you not to, makes you look bad. As in immature, privileged, and thoroughly assholish. Go fuck yourself with a dead porcupine. You are dishonest. You are incoherent. You are ignorant. And you are not fucking welcome here.

  188. says

    You all are beyond stupid.

    And you’re not. What’s your point?

    Ive said things ive experienced, and all you can do is say “prove it to me or i wont consider it.” If youre real scientists EXPLORE IT YOURSELVES.

    Well, we’re trying, but our test subject refuses to do his psychic stuff for us.

    Youre all “real scientists” until its time to act like one. then you just point fingers and act like you have a point.

    It’s how science works, dumbass. Given people’s propensity for faking shit like psychic powers, the skeptical attitude (requiring replicable evidence obtained under conditions controlled for all the well-known mistakes, biases, and random fluctuations of chance) is necessary to weed out the cranks.
    Until you show otherwise, consider yourself weeded.

    I guess that wasn’t my last comment.

    Cipher, you and john are probably the nicer end of the group, I thank you for your kindness towards me, as I am still new to this.

    I wasn’t saying that exactly, but if that is how it was perceived, then I apologize for any insults I unintentionally brought forth.

    ChasC, I loved your comment, even if it was meant to be a point in my statements. I found myself laughing from how you approached this, thank you.

    If you want me to think more appropriately on this subject, some key references would be helpful.. I only study this stuff on my spare time.

    This, at the least, is my last comment for the next 20 minutes. I really must take a shower.

  190. Nerd of Redhead, Dances OM Trolls says

    Any claim can be proven true or false.

    Nope. Depends on how well defined they are. Take the claim “there is mercury in this soil”. This is a vague claim. What is the endpoint for saying “there is no mercury”. Analyzing every molecule? Or a defined 1 ppm or 1 ppb endpoint. The latter two can be shown. The first can’t. Quit lying and bullshitting to yourself, then quit lying and bullshitting to us.

    they just arent claims of complex cells or claims about how a star is formed from gases.

    They are vague until you show evidence for them. End of story.

    Evidence is pieces of reality that support a claim, or prove it [me} wrong.

    Fixed that for you loser…

    proof [scientific and documented evidence] would be direct presentation of the claim itself.

    Fixed that for you loser. Science doesn’t do proof. It has evidence to support its claims, unlike you. You have nothing but lies and bullshit.

    You dont put pieces together to make these abilities,

    Actually you do.

    they have a process,

    Your unevidenced claim is not a process, just you lying and bullshitting.

    its done as a whole, or its not done.

    In your case, done is self-delusion, and you haven’t shown documented evidence otherwise…

    My use of the word proof has been correct.

    Nope, science doesn’t do proof, and your word isn’t proof of anything other than your delusional thinking, lies, and bullshit.

    Youre after proof, to think youre after evidence

    Nope, I’m not after proof. I’m after documented evidence. They aren’t the same, no matter how often your repeat the lies and bullshit that they are….

Heres where you realize theres something in the body thats not in the environment around you. Its Ki. Theres many people trying to make a quick buck, and the 99% makes this stuff look really fake. But, since ive proven it to others, i know it can be proven.

    One of the times i did TK, the paper towels came off the roll (the edge was on the opposite side of the roll from me) when i was pulling my arms TOWARDS me. I realize the push could have been from the wind that came from the force with which i pushed my hands forward. But, how do you explain away the pull? Room with no active AC< no windows open, paper towels were rolled up with edge opposite me on purpose. Towels were wrapped as tightly as if they were new.

    Please, please, find a logical explanation against my claim of the pull.

    erodinbladewin, The Amazing Randi used a piece of the MacArthur award he won to set up his million dollar prize for demonstrable psychic powers. And that was twenty years ago.

    Yeah – you don’t understand what the burden of proof is. I realize that you think you do, which is why you tried to pull some smug bullshit with it earlier. You think you’re making fantastic and important arguments, but unfortunately you’re actually just showing your ass. It’s a Dunning-Kruger issue, and the worst part is that your misguided confidence that you already know what you’re talking about is preventing you from learning, so it’s kind of a waste of time to try to explain it to you.

    @erodinbladewin
    Any claim can be proven true or false.

    If by “prove” you mean “do enough logical gymnastics to create a closed loop of inferences”, then maybe you’re right. That’s why we ask for concrete, real world evidence of your claims, something measurable and repeatable, so that we can go beyond childish “proofs” and into something that actually works.

    Erodins entrance into Koniki Forest
    by ~ErodinBladewin

    *puts on his helm made of titanium alloy infused crystal* “Im fully dressed now, its time to stop delaying and test my interdimensional teleporter. Ah well, lets get this over with. ” *hops into the teleporter setting the destination for the alternate earth. After hes done, he takes a look at the other controls, and cecides to make one final adjustment, to attempt to change himself into a more humanoid version favorite animal ever, a hedgehog.* “And here we go” *activate the teleporter, grunting heavily at the force of the energetic flow. His last thought before fading out of earths realm, is that he forgot to eat before he left …*

    *Halfway through the travel from one realm to the other, he notices he will end up somewhere thats clearly not where he intended to go. When he appears in the forest, he notices hes about 200 feet in the air, and frantically attempts to slow his fall using wind magic. This succeeds greatly, until he tires himself out the rest of the way, weary from the cross realm teleportaion. as he falls the last 50 feet, he becomes aout a hundred pounds of freefalling flesh and armor.”

    *theres a strange whoosh or air, and a great stirring of grass before a giant thud, which masks a yelp. After all the dust and debric clears, a black hedgehog in titanium infused crystal armor, with a sword on his right hip, becomes visible inside a 5 foot deep in hole in the ground, about 50 feet away fron the inns front door.

    Erodins Bio
    by ~ErodinBladewin

    Name: Erodin Bladewin aka Phasing Swordsmen

    Primary capabilities: Fire and air magic. Sword that can be used to cut the bonds of matter to make a sort of “empty space” around him, and enabling him to move at almost the speed of sound for .1 seconds ( or 20-25 yards). The sword has a crystal in it that can be charged with enough energy for 2-3 small fireballs, or enough air magic output to knock a smaller enemy down, without causing harm. Extreme emotional distress will cause a rise in power for about 15-20% extra effect from physical attacks and magic, until he calms down (usually takes 5 minutes at most. Can be up to 10 if he completely snaps.)

    Personality: A Guardian of the those less fortunate or capable. Believes in equality and fairness for all. Will sometimes step in when hes not needed or wanted, but will take the hint and stay out if youre forceful enough. A generally mild mannered, and hard to piss off guy. Has a hard time hurting others, even when extremely angry. If pushed far enough, will completely snap and rampage against those who hurt him. Is of above average intelligence, almost a genius when it comes to strategy, and using his environment to his benefit. As a veteran of war, he is more attuned to the subtle sounds that come from the movements of all but the best in stealth and subterfuge.

    Bio: Comes from a military family, where he was abused by his insane father who was never home unless he was drunk. He and his mother dealt with drunken fits of rage in which he was too drunk to notice when he beat his wife and son. Grew up hating the military, thinking all it was about was making others die hard, violent individuals.

    At 13 he began to think about how he could help rid his home world, Earth, of violence and make everyone truly stand on equal ground, even if he had to hold then up. As much as he desired to make his dreams reality, his life kept throwing him into deeper and deeper troubles. Was never able to get any kind of real help, because everyone just laughed at his vulnerability, and refused to train him. After 3 long years of grief, and many thoguhts of suicide he found a master of Ninjitsu at a local gym, who was once part of what was called “the X-Raiders.” They were a military unit completely devoted to the assassination of members of enemy countries governments. Erodin and Arik becme good friends over the time they spend getting to know each other, and training together. After years of friendship, Arik was killed right in front of Erodins eyes, throwing Erodin into an even deeper depression than before. Erodin decided to try academic studies, instead of fighting, which lead him to realize the existence of other realms, of various complexity. An experiment in phasing onto those realms went wrong, sending him into Koniki Forest, instead of an alternate Earth.

    Scientific evidence. And Skepticism, with this

    As a result, a number of claims are considered “pseudoscience” if they are found to improperly apply or ignore the fundamental aspects of the scientific method.

    And scientific methods require evidence.

    Scientists, who have honesty and integrity, either put up the evidence or shut the fuck up if they don’t have it when challenged. But if one thinks about it for all of five seconds, liars and bullshitters can’t put up evidence because they don’t have any, and can’t shut the fuck up because their whole aim is to bamboozle people by using bafflegabble. So, why can’t you put up or shut the fuck up??? We both know the answer bafflegabber…

    Note how erodedblubberwit presumes to put words in my mouth, saying that I assume something is impossible when I have exoressly said no such thing. This, apparently, is what errorblabwit takes as its standard of proof – ie “proof” is whatever it wants it to be. Pathetic intellectually dishonest fapwit.

    In fact, I’m not sure if ANYONE (except the lying fapper) has EVER actually claimed it was “impossible”, though I haven’t been able to examine the whole thread with just an IPhone as an interface.

    errorbladderwort is engaging in one of the oldest and lowest of rhetorical tricks – when you have no answer for your opponent’s arguments, you MAKE UP an argument, stuff it into your opponents mouth, and argue against what you, yourself, have made up.

    Laughably pathetic.

    *there’s no actual law of physics that forbids TK. One could readily conceive of an animal evolving the ability in this universe, or even a future technology that gives humans the ability. But there’s no evidence that any of Earth’s lifeforms have evolved the ability, and plenty of evidence that they haven’t. So if you, as a lifeform on earth, want to claim the ability and be believed, you have to provide the credible evidence that you, specifically, can do it.

    Be ause this is the point we’ve been trying to get through your thick head. Without you showing you can do what you claim you can do there is no reason we should believe you. Everysingle person who has ever made this claim has been proven a charlatan.

    If we took everyone’s word on extraordinary claims without any evidence we could never know the truth. It’s not only how science works, it is how reality works.

Now I feel awful about how I’m not willing to believe any jackass who claims all sorts of unbelievable bullshit without providing evidence. I don’t want to be worse than the reptiloids.

    I will not say what i am because there are no accurate texts about it. Theres a note about my kind from the greeks, but they were wrong. The name, however, is correct.

    Nope, not stupid nor immature. Telepathy to find out the thought, empathy to see if the thought is random feedback, imagination, etc. I check to see if there are any signals that denote some form of emotion. Most of them happen faster than you can notice, so you need practice to isolate them.

    Somewhere in greek mythology it mentions Archons. The stuff in there is wrong, though. Some of mythology is actual facts gathered by experiences.

    To take this as significant evidence of precognition is… somewhat flaky and gullible.

    We have two competing hypotheses here:
    1. You managed to predict a trivial, predictable course of events, and spun this into a conclusion of psychic powers because you wanted to have something special about you.
    2. Precognition is real.

    The second requires introducing a yet unproven concept. The first doesn’t. Why should we prefer the second as an explanation?

  344. Forbidden Snowflake says

    Snowflake, yet science doesnt accurately describe or deal with instincts.

    There is no reason why this statement would be true. It seems like you are trying to rationalize the weakness of your belief.

    Theres been more times ive predicted events with my instincts and manual precognition.

    Unless the other events you predicted were significantly less trivial than the only example you provided, and unless you kept a record of predictions that would prevent failed predictions from being forgotten, that doesn’t really mean much.

    hello?
    You left out “Phasing Swordsman”.

  348. Rev. BigDumbChimp says

    I mean this is all pretty obvious what is going here. Mr. Phasing Swordsman has gotten just a little bit too deep into his D&D or video game or fantasy novel or whatever escape from reality he uses. That’s all fine and good when you can still recognize what is fantasy and what is reality. erodinbladewin obviously has lost this ability. His grasp on reality is tenuous at best.

    It really would be kind of sad if he wasn’t such a raging asshole to go along with it. Perhaps this started as some sort of coping mechanism and has just progressed into full fledged delusion. Now he’s so deep in he can’t see how detached from reality he is. He actually believes he’s some mythical creature he’s created in his mind called an Archon. That he has amazing mental janitorial powers along with telepathy.

    He’s the kind of fool who thinks that the every day coincidences we all recognize actually mean he’s controlling things. I bet erodinbladewin thinks that because he sees 11:11 on the clock frequently that it is some sign of his power.

    Selective recall, confirmation bias, delusions of grandeur, inflated ego, denial of reality, etc.. etc..

    And to top it all off a giant asshole too.

    Not a good mix.

  349. sometimes quirky says

    @erodinbladewin:
    There could be other explanations for your predictions, yes?

    You ever read Gavin de Becker…?

    …At just the moment when our intuition is most basic, people tend to consider it amazing or supernatural.
    A woman tells a simple story as if it were mystical: “I absolutely knew when the phone rang that it would be my college roommate, calling after all these years.”

    Though people act as if predictions of who is calling are miraculous, they rarely are. In this case, her old roommate was reminded of her by reports of the explosion of the space shuttle.

    Is it a miracle that both women happened to watch the same news event along with a billion others? Is it a miracle that their strongest association with space travel was the angry belief they shared in college that women would never be astronauts? That as a woman astronaut died in the space shuttle explosion that morning, the two women thought of each other, even after a decade.

    These non-critical intuitions, which at first impress us, are often revealed to be somewhat rudimentary…

    My last comment here, since you “inevitables” dont know what the words “correct” and “inevitable” mean.

    Redhead, i have only proven i have not given evidence or proof. You ASSUMED im a liar and a bullshitter because you just cant get it in your head to not form any conclusion about my claims at all until you have sufficient evidence for or against them. Science doesnt tell you be an assumptive ass when someone doesnt want to give you proof because your attitude sucks. It tells you to not believe something until evidence is given to support a claim. By that note of logic, you shouldnt disbelieve it unelss you have evidence against it. Im sorry, scientists have no right to dictate the concept of fact.

    The entirety of your arguments, outside the bias and instincts subjects, has been stuff you said i said, but didnt say. I never once told you to believe me, i told you to explore the claims on your own. I never once expected you to believe my claims because i made a statement about the circumstances, and how they are evidence that supports my claims. I never said to not follow your scientific processes to test the claims.

    Its funny that sceince has produced so many experiments that “make the existence of these abilities highly improbable” when i deal with this stuff daily. Science isnt as adequate as you think.

    Alright, for the purpose of giving you all a shot at learning, ill reply once more.

    Im not witholding info to make him look silly, im witholding it because your attitudes sucked. Im not going to bother giving world changing evidence to people who have such thinking errors. Listen, i understand the need for evidence for a claim to be considered true, but if none is given, dont consider it false.

    When i find a group of “scientists” that actually has their heads on straight. ill give them proof.

    you all follow what you believe is logic. So what if its been evidenced via scientific method, you dont know the whole story. Its what you dont know that makes your “logic” so laughable. Ive noticed people like you have the habit of calling others stupid when they present a differing opinion from yours, without providing evidence. Assumptions and more assumptions, about how something should be done to be mature thinkers. Is that the best you have?

    Actually, you proved yourself to be a lair aand bullshitter. If you could or would provide evidence, fine. If you can’t or won’t you needed to shut the fuck up. Which leaves those who tacitly acknowledge their lies and bullshit by not showing evidence, and not shutting the fuck up. You acknowledged your lying and bullshitting with your behavior. And we both know you know you were lying and bullshitting.

    Science doesnt tell you be an assumptive ass when someone doesnt want to give you proof because your attitude sucks.

    Your delusional take on the matter. You didn’t show any evidence because you didn’t have any. We both know that. Your lies are obvious.

    By that note of logic, you shouldnt disbelieve it unelss you have evidence against it. Im sorry, scientists have no right to dictate the concept of fact.

    The evidence against you is historical, and makes the NULL HYPOTHESIS (starting point) that psychic abilities don’t exist. For your claim to be accepted, you must supply evidence, or you need to shut the fuck up without the evidence being presented. And science, unlike you, does control facts. Show otherwise by citing a source showing you are right…

    Science isnt as adequate as you think.

    *POOF* Unevidenced OPINION, dismissed as bullshit. Try citing something other than your lies and bullshit.

    How about you make me crap my pants? You won’t have to cite any real experiments or worry about any of our vague “thinking errors.” Go ahead. It should be easy enough to do, and it’s not too much of a request since you’ve already bothered to concern yourself with lesser human beings like us.

  357. erodinbladewin says

    Redhead, if im lying and bullshitting, why have i proven this to others? Quote your need for citations all you want, all that does is show you wish to attack my claims, not debate them. I do have evidence to show you. If youd quit being an ass id be glad to help you explore this stuff. Stop being an ass, then well work on evidence.Until then, my answer is the same, no matter how many other people you dazzle with your fancy wording.

  358. erodinbladewin says

    You want evidence of my reasoning for not proving my abilities to some people, but doing so with others? Why dont you go to MYTK and ask them about my requirements to get evidence from me. Then ask the people in my IM lists what ive proven to them.

  359. Janine: History’s Greatest Monster says

    Listen up assholes! You have to work to disprove my vague bullshit! Otherwise, you just are not true scientists!

    Also, bliss ninny, Nerd Of Redhead is not Redhead. Redhead is his wife.

    Apparently you missed the part where i shortened the name to Redhead. i havent even attempted to discern any believed differences in identities of the users here.

    There is no disporving my claims, because they are true. Im sorry your “science” says you cant think like a mature adult, but you have to adopt a “mine mine MINE” attitude when it comes to what is acceptable and not acceptable to consider. Listen, you dont run shit, you dont dictate shit, get off your high horses. The scientific method was made to rule out bias and eliminate as many errors inexperiments as they could. It wasnt mean to turn people into assholes. If any of you are in fact scientists, you disgrace your fields with your poor attitudes, and completely misunderstanding the scientific method.

  363. Nerd of Redhead, Dances OM Trolls says

    why have i proven this to others?

I have the proof of it, and im laughing at you since youre so adamant to dismiss this stuff since i wont give you evidence. This is funny.

    You are a liar and bullshitter until you prove otherwise. You don’t understand the NULL HYPOTHESIS, showing your ignorance and lack of intelligence. Psychics are frauds according the Amazing Randi (a magician), and failure to lose his million dollar challenge over twenty years shows that to be the truth, and null hypothesis, until somebody provides evidence otherwise. Who will the lurkers believe knows science and how it is done better? A thirty-five year practioner of science and skepticism, or a proven liar and bullshitter who backs up nothing with citations to the literature? You lose any argument from authority. You lose any argument from “truth”. You lose until you provide evidence to show yourself correct. And to quote Sgt. Schultz, “I see nothing”.

  372. Amphiox says

    To claim to have evidence (or “proof”) but to refuse to actually provide any of it when asked, is definitive “proof” of a LIAR.

    No further consideration of any kind need be given.

    And to quote Sgt. Schultz, “I see nothing”.

    Lol so theres literature about me using my abilities? Im part of the ever elusive 1% of practitioners who can get visible physical results. So, unless you act a little more mature towards me, i wont give you evidence. Im not the one suffering a detriment by not giving you evidence, you all are. Its you who wants the evidence that i “may or may not have.” Im gonna wave it in front of your faces until you treat me in a more respectful and mature manner.

    I know how science works, and im not saying i want you to believe me without evidence. I am telling you that your scientific method will never give you the whole story, and youll have to take the risk of being laughed out of your lab, even if you have video proof of tk in an air/sound, etc proof chamber. theres always some “logical” way to debunk this stuff. James Randi hasnt lost his million dollars because he only lets people on the show he doesnt deem a threat to his 20 year long “success” run. You know nothing of how JREF works. You keep asking for citations of my claims, but when will you ask James Randi for citations that evidence that he has not refused to have legit people on his show?

  377. Amphiox says

    Any self-respecting fool with TP and TK powers would know that it can simply remotely rearrange the neurons in NofR’s brain to make Nerd agree with it.

    Each and every post of Nerd’s that does NOT agree with it, is, therefore “proof” that it is lying.

    TK isnt done with the mind, its done with Ki. the whole of your mind is not contained in the physical brain matter.

  379. erodinbladewin says

    yeah, cause im gonna mess with someones mind because i can. thats just as immoral as a politician using flashy words to get votes.

    If he wants evidence, lets see him act more mature. if he really is a senior scientist where he works, hed be a much more valuable asset than a scholar for the greek language, or half wits who dont have the intelligence to even come up with a decently flashy counter argument. At least redhead has given a reason not to believe what i say that is outside some perceived right of entitlement.

    I know how science works,

    No you don’t. Science does this: “This is what I believe, and this is the evidence (link) to back it up”. Science leads with evidence, they don’t hide it behind immature attitudes and bogus claims.

    You keep asking for citations of my claims, but when will you ask James Randi for citations that evidence that he has not refused to have legit people on his show?

    Unevidence OPINION from a liar and bullshitter *POOF* dismissed. And I have read Randi explaining how he knows people cheat in Skeptical Inquirer. Which is why magicians were needed to debunk psychics. All trickery known to magicians. Hence the NULL HYPOTHESIS, known to all practicioners of science, is non-existence of psychic phenomena.

    And you have the fucking gall to insist that real scientists would do anything less than demand convincing evidence?
    No one here is making any fantastic claims. You are. And since fantastic claims are a dime a dozen, it’s up to you to distinguish yourself from the cranks. Like the patent office requires a working model before issuing a patent for a perpetual motion machine, you need to provide tangible evidence for your claims.
    We are not required to believe every claim until we prove it false.

    Redhead claims my claims HAVE TO BE FALSE if i dont present evidence *poof* dismissed as bullshit, because he hasnt cited some law of the universe that makes that true. Ive agreed many times, that you yould not believe something is not real without evidence. But, ive also said dont disbelieve it without evidence. All youve said is “you havent proven it cause its not real” which is more bullshit since youve cited no sources. When i throw your excuses back at you, im all the audden a troll. Redhead, maybe talk to me like an adult for a bit and ill help you. I dont give a flying fuck if someone with a scientist position in a company thinks hes at no detriment by not being the first to have undeniable documentation of TK. Guess what, youre ignorant. You think machines can detect physic capability? Nope. they cant. Brainwaves present when using something like telepathy arent detectable on MRI. If a certain hospital records sound, and has my MRI record, you will see evidence of that claim. evidence you wont take as evidence because youll call it cognitive bias. No matter how many times i give evidence of my precognition, youll call it cognitive bias. Science tries to explain away supernatural phenonemon by DEFAULT. Because it is, on average, NOT MEASUREABLE, DETECTABLE, OR IN ANY WAY SHOWABLE WITH THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD.

    Not so good to shove that shit in my face now, is it?

    Feral im going to disregard the majority of your post, because you once again put words in my mouth. Read my comments and find the response to your claims of what i think.

    It wouldnt overthrow physics dude. When you said that, you sounded just like the real bullshitters in MYTK. Physical abilities obey physics of the physical, like abilities in other dimensions follow that dimensions physics. Its about manipulating physics with your bodily presence. Mental abilities only work on the mind. You think physical abilities have a serious standard for evidence? Mental abilities have absolutely no such thing as evidence. the best you can get is seriously similiar experiences that look like seriouss coincidences that happen alot.

    TK moves objects the same way air or earth does, force, indirect or direct. Its just done with Ki

  388. sometimes quirky says

    *rolls eyes*

    Oh, c’mon…

    Quirky, if youd take the time to read my comments, youll see ive said, at least 3 times, i dont expect people to believe me without evidence. They shouldnt disbelieve me either.

    making a few typoes and not using words in the retarded fashion you do means i likely dont have the evidence i claim to have. MAKES SO MUCH SENSE NOW.
