TZT

The current crop is certainly fitting the theme of The Zombie Thread: dull, dumb, mindless, and repetitive. You keep filling ‘em up, though, I’ll keep knocking ‘em down.

    ryan –

    Your google-fu sucks. Try some remedial internet usage classes. You were looking for:

    THIS.

    the quote is:

    I don’t like you, and I don’t like ‘Christians.’ You’re a cancer on civilized society. Your outlook on life and human interactions is evil and retrograde, and I enjoy watching generations of you die off so you fade into cultural obscurity. The more of you who die off the fewer there are to torment people like me.

    Argue against it, sure. But “he said something like X, but I can’t find the thread” without trying a simple tool like google does not entitle you to make up some paraphrase of what Josh said and argue against that.

    OT, but are others having trouble getting the comments all to appear? At the top of the preceding TZT thread, I see reference to 901 comments, but I only can get 401 to resolve.

    I’d hate to miss anything.

    FtB automatically creates a new comment “page” for every 500 comments. If you scroll down to the end of the comments in any thread with 500+ comments, there should be a link to “Older Comments” (or “Older Posts”).

    I just wanted to bring up something that I loved from TZT-7: comment 279 on the “newer comments” section…

    Ing:

    I want you to be honest, partially for selfish reasons and also because I’m idealistic enough to give that service to people because it’s good for you.

    Best thing I learned here is the absolute liberty knowing you can fucking escape a shit storm by admitting you were wrong rather than digging your heels in.

    Yes. One of the things that annoys me no end are the memes that the Horde is constantly in lockstep and that pharyngula is an echo chamber of constructive interference.

    The first time I posted, PZ himself came down on my, and a number of regulars as well. When I was nominated for a Molly, I posted something that was dramatically wrong by assuming only those with Mollies could vote for the next Molly recipient. I was roundly chastised – and deservedly so. Further, on the same Molly thread I encouraged folk to vote for people who had been engaged in Pharyngula longer than I. I was roundly chastised for misunderstanding the nature of the Molly, with accusations of false modesty thrown in. Realizing I could vote, I stopped lobbying for other people to vote according to my own criteria.

    Meanwhile, on another thread I mistook some astute commentary to be based on a reaction to something totally different…and thus that the commentary made transphobic assumptions and was unhelpful, even counterproductive. I stuck to my guns when I was told I was wrong. Right up to the point where the person pointed out the post to which they were actually responding. Then I owned up to be dramatically wrong. Again.

    All that happened over just a couple days. It wasn’t my finest Pharyngula hour. But I admitted my errors because others provided information/evidence/good argument. And, while I don’t at all think that these errors or my admissions increased my chances in any way, what happened during that time was that people voted me a Molly.

    The point of this is that being wrong and arguing against other regulars not only happens, it comes from people who are given the only kind of formal respect the Horde offers. My being wrong on several things, just at the moment a Molly was being decided, would have likely made it impossible to get something like it on most other sites. Not here. We value good info and argument. We value when someone can admit error or concede an argument. We are anything but an echo chamber.

    To the extent that we sound like one, it is only when a post or poster seriously violates multiple fundamental values around here – then even people with different priorities are going to be united against the Derp.

    So when Ing said the above on TZT-7, I just wanted to, well, echo it. Constructively.

    Aw, hell.

    Jesus that’s chilling. I’m seeing Winston Smith with a cage of rats over his face. It’ll all stop as long as you say the right words.

    Granted, a dimwit like myself can leave and pet the cat when the Horde descends; you can save the indignation regarding the imperfect analogy because I realize it is an analogy and not an isomorphism.

    Yes, Nepenthe,PZ is Big Brother and this is Airstrip One.

    The idiot was neither nor under interrogation. He was doubling down on a very bad argument and got what he deserved.

    You are using an inappropriate analogy.

    So, do you see a cage around your head now?

    I love Dispatches, but the comment section sometimes gives me headaches. an other times, i discover that some people who are stupid here are even more stupid over there:

    Now as I understand it, it seems that for quite a while Obama was a Muslim or identified publicly as one until he somewhere along the line he joined Jeemiah Wright’s hateful atypical “christian” church.

    I’d also guess that Obama also probably became an athiest or at least non-believer at some point because he’s intelligent enough to work things out and also to keep his real beliefs private whilst utilising religion for politics and being friends with religious allies and supporters.

    So maybe Obama will officially come out in 2013 post-election as an athiest or agnostic, I’m pretty sure he isn’t any longer a Muslim although I wish he’d demonstrate that more clearly by speaking out a bit more aggressively against Islam.

    Nepenthe:

    It shouldn’t be, Nepenthe, especially as that’s not what Ing meant at all and I suspect you know that, really. Pharyngula is one of those places where if you’re wrong and keep digging a hole instead of owning up, the commentariat will continue to argue and attempt to get through, to educate, much like we were doing with Ryan. When someone does say something like “oh, I see what you’re saying, sorry!”, everyone accepts that and moves on.

    You’ve been in the thick of enough threads to know that. Are you feeling especially down lately?

  19. 19
    Nepenthe

    @Janine
    As I said, I’m aware that, as an analogy, it’s not a fucking one-to-one correspondence. For the analogically impaired: to say that the way to make suffering stop (eg “escape a shit storm”) is to say the correct words or think the correct things (“admitting you were wrong”) is creepy at best. One should change one’s mind because one was wrong and is now convinced of that, not because one is being berated. The idea that submission is liberating is chilling and straight out of the re-education handbook.

    The chillingness of this idea has no relation to the crimes of the person being shit-stormed. If struggle sessions were the tools of a radical feminist party against MRAs, they’d still be authoritarian and wrong. I don’t really give a shit who the idiot was or what they did. ING’s statement, and that people here are echoing it, is creepy regardless.

    So, you knowingly use a bad analogy. What is the fucking point?

    Oh, wait, I do not give a flying fuck. Just an other bad argument.

    Crip Dyke, Right Reverend Feminist FuckToy of Death & Her Handmaiden

    Nepenthe –

    saying that one can get out of a shitstorm by doing X is

    NOT

    the same as saying the ONLY way to get out of a shitstorm is by doing X.

    You can also get out of a shitstorm by providing good, reliable info/evidence in a context of good argument.

    But when you’re wrong, you don’t win by digging the hole deeper – not here anyway.

    I’m probably wrong–I’m rarely not– but if I don’t even have the mental capacity to appreciate a cat video, I’m certainly not going to be able to figure out whether I am or not.

    I like you and of course I’m concerned when you’re not feeling so great. As for that stupid LOL cat video, you aren’t alone by a long shot. It didn’t read as funny in any way to me, and I agreed with your take on it all the way. What passes for humour a lot of the time simply leaves me cold.

    As for shutting up, please don’t. At least not because you feel silly or anything. Shit, everyone here has days where things strike them wrong and it doesn’t stop anyone else from yakking about it. Anyway, I miss having you around, so at least say something every now and then. ♥

    The Laughing Coyote (Canis Sativa)

    I’m starting to really lose track of Rajkumar’s fucking point here. From what I can gather he appears to be some kind of religious guy?

    The thing about Divine Tits proving god? Kinda sad and creepy all at the same time. I love boobs too (though find myself much more drawn to butts) but I don’t mistake them for a religious experience.

    Do eight massive floppy nursing dog-tits prove the existence of Dog-Jesus?

    rajkumar

    The thing about Divine Tits proving god? Kinda sad and creepy all at the same time. I love boobs too (though find myself much more drawn to butts) but I don’t mistake them for a religious experience.

    This is most likely because, in your mind, you have a very clear definition of what a ‘religious experience’ should be like, even when you do not believe in religious experiences? What a paradox! Michelle the goddess, with her bouncing divine breasts, on a beach in Rio, wouldn’t you call this a religious experience? If not, why not?

  58. 58
    The Laughing Coyote (Canis Sativa)

    Why Not? Because they’re breasts. When I’m feeling frisky and if the person they’re attached to is feeling the same, they’re fun to play with, but otherwise I find them kind of mundane and easy to ignore. Half the human population has them, after all. And a very large portion of that half are getting sick of being defined by them.

    They’re roundish lumps of fatty tissue, covered in skin, with a nipple on ‘em. Biological constructs. Fun biological constructs, because my genes as a heterosexual male primate make me find them fun, and useful for nursing (when they work properly, that is), but so what? It doesn’t make them divine or mystical.

    If I were to believe in a goddess, why do you think it would be her ‘tits’ that I should worship, as opposed to say her mind or abilities? This says far more about you and your view of women than it does me.

    That is the dumbest diagram I have seen since an artist tried to make an impression of a transitional being between an ape and a man. Both are hopelessly incorrect and laughable.

    For starters, the man you portrayed in this cartoon – Jesus- first showed up to two women. They thought he looked quite normal, and would certainly have run from a ‘zombie’ image as you portray.

    Secondly, there was no appearance of blood, because it was a RESURRECTED body, not a decomposing body. This Jesus appeared to twelve of his students several times after his initial encounter with the two women. He ate fish in front of them. He walked on a beach and did not scare any passer-bys with his ugly, decomposed look. Why? Because He was NOT a pale, decomposing, bleeding zombie. This Jesus even stated He was not a ghost, and indeed had a body and a skeletal system like those he appeared to.

    I hate to say it ladies and gentlemen, but your image just reflects a subjective, unscientific artists impression which is totally unfounded. I would at least think a Science Lecturer, who has a position in a respectable university, would get his facts right before posting silly caricatures to an impressionable body of young university students.

It doesn’t make them divine or mystical.

    Yeah well, you are probably not the right guy for this argument. I need someone like me. By the way, the point is, it is just not the mere shape and size and the colour of a breasts that turns on a man. Because if it true, then what are called ‘fake boobs’, would have the equal power to turn on a man. They don’t. On the contrary, most men find them a turn-off. If a female’s breast’s power to ‘turn on’ a man could be divided into 10 equal segments, and these segments could be numbered from 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest point of power and 10 being the highest point of power, how would you rate the power of Michelle’s breasts as compared to … say, the power of Pamela Anderson’s breasts? I would rate them as: Michelle 10, Pam Anderson 1. Why? There’s lot to think here, I guess…

    If I were to believe in a goddess, why do you think it would be her ‘tits’ that I should worship, as opposed to say her mind or abilities? This says far more about you and your view of women than it does me.

    Because, for one thing, ‘tits’ are physical and can be seen by eyes, thus much easy to ‘evaluate’. Whereas the mind of a person is invisible, thus much harder to ‘evaluate’. I appreciate a woman’s mind too. But I, kind of, appreciate the whole package. Which is to say, I do not consider one thing to be superior to another in a woman. For me, each part has its own value.

    You mean another religious guy who sees women (just the ‘attractive’ goddesses, I’m assuming) as “that thing what’s attached to the TIIIIIIIIIIITS”?

    By the way, the point is, it is just not the mere shape and size and the colour of a breasts that turns on a man.

    True, for many of us breasts are a just fun aside, you know, because we are attracted to the women we’re attracted to because of their personalities and who they are. Most of us. I’m guessing this is why I’m ‘probably not the right guy for this argument’.

    Because if it true, then what are called ‘fake boobs’, would have the equal power to turn on a man. They don’t. On the contrary, most men find them a turn-off.

    Blatant jackassery. For a guy who considers boobs divine, I don’t really think you know a lot about them. What else can I say? Except

    Because, for one thing, ‘tits’ are physical and can be seen by eyes, thus much easy to ‘evaluate’. Whereas the mind of a person is invisible, thus much harder to ‘evaluate’

    Again, this says a lot about your view of women. Forget the bone to ‘woman’s mind’ and ‘whole package’ you toss next in your paragraph, it’s unnecessary. Getting to know women as people is hard, so you’d rather put their boobs on a pedestal and act like the tightness in your pants is God speaking to you, and not biology plus some very creepy ideas about women.

    Oh, Rajkumar, the fuckwitted idjit, recommended a YT for some inane insipidity. Raj, you recommending anything is considered a time waster for me, so I will ignore each and every recommendation you target me for. You are Heinlein’s fool who is asked, when you need to vote and don’t have time to form a proper opinion. Ask the fool, which is you Rajkumar, and then do the opposite is what you recommend. And you offer nothing of cogency, intellect, honesty, and integrity. So, like Heinlein recommends, the opposite is good. If you think Alan Watts is worthwhile, it means he isn’t. Welcome to reality, where you are the cesspool of thinking. And PZ has warned you to quit your present just trolling and actually discuss something intelligently and with evidence in his #4.

    How do you know Jebus looked normal? The gospels were written long after the events supposedly portrayed in them and the writers were not eye-witnesses. Instead, the writers had agendas they were pushing. Were they going to say “Jebus came out of the tomb looking semi-decomposed and muttering ‘brains! brains!’” even if that’s what happened?

    Chill out. relax. and note that your ‘gentlemanly’ attitude towards women is not going to win you a real woman.

    So the only way to “win a real woman” is to obsess about her breasts? Do you compliment “real women” about their tits and sneer at “unreal women” for having less then perfect breasts? Tell us, misogynist asshole, what’s the best way to talk to a “real woman” about her hooters?

    For starters, the man you portrayed in this cartoon – Jesus- first showed up to two women. – antigodless

    For starters, that depends on which gospel you pick, doesn’t it? In Matthew it’s Mary Magdalene and “the other Mary”. In Mark and John, it’s Mary Magdelene alone (and in Mark, the last 12 verses were clearly added later – the earliest manuscripts omit them and there’s an obvious break in the text, the original didn’t mention a post-mortem appearance of Jesus at all). In Luke, it’s Cleopas and another unnamed person. In Luke and John, the person or persons first seeing Jesus don’t initially recognise him – in the case of the gospel of Luke, not for a considerable time. The contradictions about who saw Jesus first are only one set of many: who first went to the tomb?, did they see one angel or two or none?, did those who went to the tomb immediately tell anyone else it was empty? Clearly, none of the gospels, which were written decades after the alleged events described, can possibly be trusted.

    antigodless @60: Riiiiight, so your point is what?…Jokes are invalid when they contradict what happened in real life? I’ll let the definition of ‘real life’ slide for now, because merely thinking the Bible is true is mundane and ordinary, but objecting to Zombie Jesus jokes in such detail is new and bizarre and a whole other level of hilarious. Your last paragraph in particular threatened my bladder control. Who knew a cartoon could be such SRS BIZNESS?

    I would at least think a Science Lecturer, who has a position in a respectable university, would get his facts right before posting silly caricatures to an impressionable body of young university students.

    Well, lets look at your facts. PZ is an Associate Professor, not a Lecturer. Mistake one. His CV is on the side bar. Second, you haven’t shown the inerrancy of the babble with solid and conclusive physical evidence, mistake two. You simply falsely presuppose it, just like the existence of your imaginary deity, the third mistake you make. If you can’t show the truth, with solid evidence not based on fallacious presuppositions, you can’t complain about others who don’t agree with your illogical mistakes.

    fwiw ryanwilkinson, if you’re still around, the purely personal opinion of this total stranger on the internet is that you should/would do well to stick around and read here, probably without commenting, for a good long while. I’d bet that if you did there’s at least a chance you’d have a few lightbulb moments. Obviously if you or I or anyone comments bullshit you/I/they will continue to get your/my/their asses handed to you/me/them in a sling.

    And of course, as others have pointed out, there are a gazillion other atheist sites out there that take a different approach – the whole range of flavours is available; no need for Pharyngula to ape them just because some people prefer a different flavour. Also, Overton. Window.
    .
    Personally I would take a site where I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that sexist and other discriminatory crap will always get called out over a site which is all High Minded Superficially Courteous (and actually silencing) Intellectual Discussion any moment of any day of any week.

    Oh, and antigodless? Hilarious. You actually thought you were making a point there? Beyond hilarious. (PS you know that bible thing you’re so fond of? People wrote it! Ordinary people with an agenda wrote a whole bunch of stuff years after the events they purport to describe, and made shit up. You really think a real bloke who actually once existed got executed in a bog-standard way but came back to life again afterwards? And you don’t get why that means we will roll our eyes and laugh at you?)

    @ ‘Tis & Rumtopf

    How do you know Jebus looked normal? …

    Just to clarify your question, I’ll comment on:

    Godbot: ‘Secondly, there was no appearance of blood, because it was a RESURRECTED body, not a decomposing body.’

    This is exactly what happened to Hector. Upset at the desecration that Achilles planned for the cadaver of Hector, the gods preserved his corpse so that it was in perfect condition even after being dragged about behind a chariot. By comparison jeebus didn’t have much to complain of.

    Rumtopf: Aw come on, the best part was when Jesus got Thomas to stick his hands into the gaping wounds :D

    This was likely based on the story of Ulysses. People could not believe his return after nearly two decades of war and wandering. He had to show the scar on his knee where he had been gored by a wild boar. It was taken as a sign of his right to kingship.

    Remember that these popular tales had over 800 years to spread around the Mediterranean. The jeebus myth is just poor, derivative fanfiction.

    Could you please reconcile your observations about the male human’s reaction to female human’s breasts (and that reaction being proof of gods) and the large number of cultures in human history in which female humans going topless, or with breasts fully exposed in other ways, was normal? And, if you could point to some peer-reviewed literature supporting your assertion regarding the male human’s reaction to female human’s breasts that would also help.

    @Nephy

    Fuck you.

    1) lesson is not relevent only to this place…it is human nature to defend an idea once publivally expressed. Its easy to get into a mental trap of defending the indefensible for egotistical reasons. It is a good lesson to learn that you can sit back and be humble enough to learn and admit you were wrong rather than arguing indefinitly trying to save face. Its a point of maturity not 1984 bullshit. It is liberating to be able to escape your own argument, its also honest. Coverup is more damning than the crime often. Best damage control is to take lumps rather than look like an idiot trying to “win”.

    2) your an asshole for intentionally misreading that as hivemind bullshit. Context was clear you’re just trolling and seeking to shit on
    someone.

    3) I was talking about being actually honest and open to real discussion. As in actually trying to be right rather than just feel right

    I had a friend who was/is a well-known activist in certain circles. We were meeting with some folks at an after-conference party and she was relating this story about how everyone always thinks she’s so smart and together but at home all her boy-toy hears is, “Where’s my pants???”

    Travis

    I think its an interesting experiment. How does a community hold the line without strong mechanisms. I don’t know. (But I’d like to know.)

    I suspect it will be difficult but that is just based on my recent experiences elsewhere when trying to get a group of users to hold the line.

    I am a member of a group on social network that is that is devoted to letting photographers know others are using their works on their profiles so that they can decided whether to issue a DCMA request, or whatever they want to do. There are 650 members but probably only 30 are actually active. In the past people would often send the people using the photos messages, comment on the photos, sometimes nicely informing them they did not have permission and that it is against the terms of service, some being meaner. People mainly did this as the site admin did not take this issue very seriously and people were frustrated as they did not seem to honour their own terms of service, though I suspect some just enjoyed it. Anyway, the site rules changed and they finally started taking it seriously. Now anyone can report an image and the website staff will contact the copyright owners. The system works much better overall. There was a lot of discussion in the group about how we should go forward and it was decided that suspect profiles should simply be reported, no insults, and if you know where the images come from just report them an move on. No need to post about it in the group. Overall the goal was to keep the angry posts down as many people do not seem to like having the 3000+ photos they have stored on their profile taken down, even if they agreed not to post other people’s photos and get rather angry when this is pointed out. However, keeping people to this has been difficult. It seems no matter how many times some users have been told about the new procedures they cannot abide by it. And this is a small group, on a website with much more stringent rules about what can be said and how you can say it.

    I do not think it would take many people ignoring the embargo to keep raj going. But hey, maybe I am wrong. I would not mind seeing this experiment in action.

    Unless PZ decides to occasionally flush the TZT, I think well have to wait for him to get bored and find greener pastures to troll. That’ll probably happen whether or not we ignore him, but it’d certainly be nicer if there were a quick way.

    Sally, thought I would just drop by to give a quick review.

    The red bra provides an excellent support to these breasts, because it adds to the power of breasts. However, the tattoo on the left breast nullifies that power rise given to the breasts by the red bra. Now, **the most important observation** that could be made about the pictures is, the lady appears to be a little shy about exposing the real power of her breasts. Which is to say, she is effectively covering those divine spots called nipples. Why? I have no idea. One reason pops in mind. Maybe she is an American, and most Americans would instantly classify a picture with bare breasts as belonging to the ‘porn’ category.

So she had three. She’s a Native too, like you. She was really cool. Wonder if she still works there.

    The fapwit thinks that an intellectually HONEST response to fapwittery count as “falling” for a “prank”, because it, in its ethical depravity, cannot comprehend what the word “honesty” means.

    Some driveby Christer upthread:

    For starters, the man you portrayed in this cartoon – Jesus- first showed up to two women. They thought he looked quite normal, and would certainly have run from a ‘zombie’ image as you portray.

    Becuz wimmenz is such fraidy cats, right?

    You are apparently not educated much in zombie lore. Unfamiliar with the vast number of works on the subject. Perhaps you should read World War Z or the various internet resources regarding zombie survival and the various mechanisms for zombie apocalypses before spouting off and showing your ignorance of the matter here. Dismissing the works of the various scholars of zombification and undeath means that we can only dismiss your claims with as much ease and as little rigor. Educate yourself on these serious, intellectual matters before cavalierly dismissing them like pompous, unlearned boor.

    (Zombies can look and act very human before they have completely turned.)

    Secondly, there was no appearance of blood, because it was a RESURRECTED body, not a decomposing body.

    John 20: 20 And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the LORD…
    25 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the LORD. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.
    26 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.
    27 Then saith He to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.

    He ate fish in front of them.

    Fish have brains and flesh to eat, ya know.

    He walked on a beach and did not scare any passer-bys with his ugly, decomposed look.

    It takes about three days to start with the real, serious decomposition, and Jesus was only in his tomb for a day and a half. And it doesn’t start looking horribly decayed until about ten days after death.

    Also, interesting note, the beach scene takes place in the chapter of John immediately after the Doubting Thomas wound-fisting scene that you were apparently unaware of. And it has the disciples not recognizing poor ol’ Jesus at first. He apparently looked a little un-Jesus-like at the time. Corpse bloat’ll do that to ya.

    I hate to say it ladies and gentlemen, but your image just reflects a subjective, unscientific artists impression which is totally unfounded.

    Stated by the critter who started his post alluding to the fact that he trusts a literal interpretation of thousand year old phantasmagorical poetry over the interpretation of objective evidence by modern day science. You managed to fail to rebut an obvious joke while showing that you are also a hypocrite. All in the space of a few paragraphs. Good job!

    Side note: holy shit raj is one boring, yet awful, little troll.

    Anyways, good job getting back into your human skin so quickly.

    Too bad raj can’t say the same of himself. He’s been fumbling with his human skin for so long that each one of us could point out the exact panel where the faulty wiring is.

    Could you please reconcile your observations about the male human’s reaction to female human’s breasts (and that reaction being proof of gods) and the large number of cultures in human history in which female humans going topless, or with breasts fully exposed in other ways, was normal?

    Ok, I haven’t been following this. Do I even *want* to know these observations? Or is that dark and scary territory?
    Does rajkumar think that the arousal *some* human males have to women’s breasts = god?
    If so, I wonder what that means for gay men that don’t have a reaction to women’s breasts (I’ve certainly never been aroused by them). Or, for that matter, the gay men that have the *opposite* reaction to women’s breasts. I would think the lack of a reaction from the penis of a gay man would just as likely be proof that god *doesn’t* exist. Can’t the poor argument go either way?
    What about those who are blind or have difficulty seeing?
    What about men with erectile problems?
    What about men that don’t get aroused by breasts, but *are* heterosexual?
    And is the reaction dependent on sight?
    Do tactile sensations bring about a reaction?
    Is it a combination of the two?

    The Rat Report: Chas was out and about today, laying pee trails and Rubin Plinge* and Esme were spotted. After being talked to, soothed and bribed with chocolate Ensure, tea, peanut butter, nutella, fresh salad and fresh crunchies, they allowed me to show them the Special Spots™ I made for them (one super sekrit hiding nest to stash stolen goods, a ladder, specifically not cleaned leading up to a couple of my worktables, etc.), they are now running about wreaking havoc and general mischievousness.

    *Rubin is now Rubin Plinge, having a fair amount in common with Walter Plinge**. Much like Walter, during ‘daylight’ hours (read: when the lights are on and I’m busy in the studio), Rubin is spooky, stilted and shy. However, when the lights are out (or low), he becomes The Phantom of the Studio, The Dark Scamperer™!

    You have hit the nail right on the head.

    Let me give you an example: You have a turbo-charged AMG and you are driving leisurely on a free way, but an annoying dude in his new **Suzuki Sports**, the one which he got from his dad on his 18th birthday, keeps challenging you into a race. You accept the challenge … but do you need to turn on the turbochargers on your AMG for that dude’s Suzuki? No. All you have to do is, gently push the accelerator about 1/2 cm every time that annoying dude gets close to you and thinks he is about the win the race. Give him some lead and then wait for him to get close to you again. Keep doing this until he is able to discern the difference between a turbo-charged AMG and a Suzuki Sports.

    1) Winning by loosing
    However badly you have disproven or embarrassed this person, it turns out that it was all part of their master plan to get a rise out of you, to prove some kind of point they can’t seem to explain. They honestly seem to think that despite flailing uselessly in making their original argument, they are smooth enough to convince everyone that they are a master puppeteer, pulling everyone’s strings.

    [...]

    The important thing to remember is that you are dealing with a person who has essentially placed a twig on their head and expects you to believe they are a tree. Armored in that level of “confidence,” almost anything you say will be construed by them as evidence that their tree disguise is working, so you will have to be very specific and to the point in addressing exactly what they’re doing and why it’s not fooling anyone.

    Subtlety and sarcasm are great tools but there is no way in hell they will get through to this poor sap. Unless you’re just toying with them for your amusement, the best way to put an end to it is just to be direct. Point them to this guide if necessary, explain that you know what they are doing, and that it is so obvious it can be seen from space.

    Chances are they will just end up placing more twigs on their head, praying fervently that this will succeed, but at least you gave it your best shot.

He is smart because he “fooled” us into believing he is dumb based on dumb comments he is retroactively claiming were dumb on purpose. Not reading links and not answering questions was all part of his fun and games routine of pretending to be an idiot. Which he clearly isn’t. Obviously, he wouldn’t have been confined to the Zombie Thread in the first place if he was an idiot when he was posting seriously (oh, wait…).

    As your vehicle choice indicates, raj, you mistake noise for intelligence, you mistake flash for substance, attention for admiration:

    The need for attention

    Human beings are social creatures and need social interaction, feedback, and validation of their worth. The emotionally mature person doesn’t need to go hunting for these; they gain it naturally from their daily life, especially from their work and from stable relationships. Daniel Goleman calls emotional maturity emotional intelligence, or EQ; he believes, and I agree, that EQ is a much better indicator of a person’s character and value than intelligence quotient, or IQ.

    The emotionally immature person, however, has low levels of self-esteem and self-confidence and consequently feels insecure; to counter these feelings of insecurity they will spend a large proportion of their lives creating situations in which they become the centre of attention. It may be that the need for attention is inversely proportional to emotional maturity, therefore anyone indulging in attention-seeking behaviours is telling you how emotionally immature they are.

    Attention-seeking behaviour is surprisingly common. Being the centre of attention alleviates feelings of insecurity and inadequacy but the relief is temporary as the underlying problem remains unaddressed: low self-confidence and low self-esteem, and consequent low levels of self-worth and self-love. In males, it is often a compensation for an underdeveloped phallus.

    The three biggest lies: The cheque’s in the mail; I love you: I did that on purpose.

    I am just saying that you people are super dumb, you have to be, for taking me seriously after I was moved to Zombie Thread.

    You know, I am a nice person. Because I by this argument so completely, I decided to thoroughly document just how obviously great of a commenter before you decided to slack off and become a hilarious prankster in the TZT. Just to make it clear to everyone here that they were suckers for believing that you could ever be stupid enough to argue the way you have here. I mean, seriously, how could they be so Super Dumb? You were obviously acting completely out of character with what we already seen from you.

    Anyway, behold: Rajkumar’s incredibly serious wit and wisdom, outside of TZT :

    On Scholasticism:

    I already told you why I didn’t read that paper. I don’t like reading philosophy. If you don’t mind, you can still explain what’s in that paper in your own words.

    On science being so open-minded its brain fell out:

    Science is open to **any** concept pending proper evidence, even if it means concepts that contradict atheism, right? Are atheists open to this possibility? If they are, how they could possibly use science as a weapon to kill god? And if they are not, they are simply using science as a promoting tool for their atheism. This is why I objected.

    On being a rebel:

    Oh I am sorry. I didn’t know how any criticism of the amazing PZ was not allowed here. What next? Do I get banned for posting the objection? You are the xpert…. tell me

    On “Just Leave Me Alone!”:

    OK. Thanks for the Info. Basically, it was a discussion between Kel and I, not you and I. And I don’t have to read anything I don’t like, and insisting that I should just because someone has cited it, and because these are the rules here, is actually what is tiresome and rude .

    On “That’s Just, Like, Your Opinion, Man”:

    What exactly is an ‘evidenced idea’, Nerd? I thought ideas happened first, and then those ideas were substantiated with evidence. This is why I have already told you many times, why asking for evidence at this stage is simply irrelevant. This is just a discussion about an idea, and no one is saying it is an idea that can be backed by evidence. Maybe it can’t be, maybe it can be. Are you not even open to a discussion?

    On “Sure, Christianity’s stupid, but how ’bout the beliefs of other religions I will not specify anything about?”:

    This is what I said in one of my previous posts today. You only talk to a select group of people. Have you ever spoken to a Zen monk, or a Hindu monk, or a Buddhist monk, or a Sufi Dervish, or a Shaman, on this God issue?

    On Sophisticated Theology/Binary Thinking:

    They generally equate God in its original form with ‘non-being’. They talk about polar opposites to explain the concept of God. Such as up/down, right/left, black/white, and being/non-being. To understand the concept of God from their standpoint, you need to first have a concept of polar opposites. Do you know them? Such as atheism/theism?

    On Transcendence (i.e. Getting High)

    We need to increase our awareness, or ‘raise our consciousness’. Sam Harris would know a lot about this stuff, as he claims he has spent a lot of time with great mystics of the East. And once while under the influence of LSD, or some similar mind altering substance, he claims to have merged with a redwood tree in an ‘ego less eternal communion’. Yes, this oneness that he experienced, according to Zen Monks, was an experience of God in one of its infinite forms. Of course, we do not need drugs to get there. They recommend different forms of meditations.

    On Neuroscience, and Its Subservience to MAGIC:

    Yes. It is so easy to describe these states as ‘our brain doing amazing things’, but that doesn’t really explain anything at all, does it? If you ask me, it actually creates more confusions. It is like is describing every event in the universe as ‘atoms doing amazing things’, which is true, but still doesn’t explain anything.

    On “Bravely Accepting the Truth, Wherever You Find It”:

    I have a simple plan. I will address only those who didn’t take a philosophy major. In other words, everyday people.

    On Self (i.e. Wankery):

    “The perception we have of a unified consciousness is an illusion”????

    Again you are making a mistake. A BIG one. There is no one to perceive here, dear. You have already lost yourself in this ‘unified field of consciousness’. There is no “you” any more. So, again, who is the one experiencing or perceiving when you have no ego self left?

    On “I’m Totally Not Misogynistic, You Guys”:

    As for John Marales, assuming he is a man, he acted like a one little pussy last night. If anything, he only screwed up your position….

    And just a little clarification note on the usage of the word ‘pussy’ here: “5. Slang A man regarded as weak, timid, or unmanly.”

    Again, assuming this character John Morales is a man, this ‘little pussy’ title fits him perfectly. Nothing to do with being sexist or not. For those of you who started jumping up and down, and bouncing around.

    On “Pay No Attention to the People Who Actually Believe This Shit Behind the Curtain”:

    But there is something that you should look into. If you do not believe God exists, which you don’t being an atheist, then you can’t define God. If you can’t define God, then you have no clue what God is like, or God’s characteristics. If you have no clue what God is like, then you’re not going to recognize God when you will be presented with evidence.

    On Entries from The Rajiam-Kumster Dictionary:

    This subjective experience CANNOT be defined, it can only be had — you idiot. And this is how God can be defined. Something that CANNOT Be defined, but can be experienced subjectively if certain conditions are met. This is based on the testimonies of thousand upon thousands of people. I know this doesn’t rhyme with your atheism, but that’s fine, because your atheism has nothing to do with science.

    On Sexual Thrills:

    By the way, I am kind of used to getting banned. In fact, maybe the reason I keep coming back is because I want to get banned. So, nothing unusual for me. In fact, I wouldn’t mind PZ removing all of my comments here, if they are just ‘too obnoxious’ for you highly civilized people

    AND MOAR :

    On Mutually Exclusive Belief Systems:

    Dawkins called himself both an atheist and an agnostic. So, it is like, he is an atheist most of the time, but he turns himself into an agnostic when he runs out of arguments? And he says he cares passionately about the truth? What truth?? He invented his own scale, and now he moves right and left on his own scale. Who can possibly have a reasonable argument with such a person?

    On CdesIntelligence Advocacynentism :

    The laws of physics…. How does the universe have laws that work with microscopic precision? Laws that work with such astonishing precision, can we call these laws some intelligence at work? Not a separate intelligence that is controlling these laws, but the laws themselves being a part of some larger intelligence? Don’t get too upset. I am just asking a question. And believe me, my questions have nothing to do with intelligent design or creationism.

    On Intelligent Falling:

    Seriously, I am not talking about any supernatural phenomenon here. I am just asking if these physical laws, the ones that Newton discovered and then bought a patent on them, could be called ‘intelligent physical laws’, since they work with such amazing precision and accuracy. Like, the laws know how to assemble atoms into molecules. No supernatural, no woo, no ghost, no soul, no God.

    On Definitions, And Like Coming from Like:

    But if I have to get a start, let’s look at human intelligence. We know what it is, don’t we? But where did this intelligence come from? Through billion of years of evolution? Enlarge your perspective. Where is this evolution taking place? In the universe, right? So, we may say, the universe as some greater intelligence has created some lower form of intelligence in humans. What do I mean by intelligence? Intelligence is something that can create more intelligence through its own intelligence. For example, the universal intelligence can create human intelligence, and the human intelligence can create artificial intelligence, and the artificial intelligence can … maybe some time in the future … create more intelligence. We humans have intelligence, but where did this intelligence come from? Intelligence cannot come from no where, and it must come through some greater intelligence. That’s the idea.

    On Informed Discussion and Evolving Evolutions:

    What’s bottom-up design, in simple words?…[Gets Answer]
    Thanks for calling that simple. But life isn’t simple I guess…. Evolutionary theory, could itself be a part of some larger evolution? For example, evolution that produced life on earth, is part of some universal evolution, and the universal evolution could itself be a part of some larger evolution, and up to ad infinitude?

    There is such a profound and stark difference between the clowning around of Rajkumar in the TZT and the enlightened, intellectual arguments he made before he was locked in here. Yep. He sure got all of us. He’s not a moron, at all .

    2) Raj is fucking with us? I am shocked. Shocked I tell you. It’s almost like I was taking him seriously. Oh wait. Nope, don’t think I ever did! Woot! Anyway, I’m actually glad Raj has been fucking with us. Yup you read that right, I’m pleased. Good on you Raj. After all it would be a terrible shame for you to derive no pleasure from all that public masturbation.

    3) There is no third thing. Look away. DON’T LOOK AT ME!!!!!

    4) Tony at #223, fed up of boobies and tits, begs us to throw him a bone. Tony, no problem. Here is a picture of my massive cock. It’s mostly pink with a little bit of blue and purple on its head. Hope this helps.

    5) Lastly, Raj, whilst I am positively priapic with glee that you are gaining some pleasure here, just remember if you play with it too much, you can go blind.

    Good day all.

    OK. First thing, employ some originality. You are repeating the same stuff many of you have repeated already — many times. Second, and more importantly, whatever your reasons are, don’t say ‘I have no where to run’, because it is you who wants to get rid of me, not vice versa. I am still here.

    Raj,

    You did change “all” to “many” as I was posting. Well done you, here, have a biscuit.

    The “Raj vs the world” act, old. New schtick, please. You came to a rationalist website, made some outlandish claims, provided no evidence and little reasoning and you are SURPRISED people leapt on you and gave you a verbal arse whooping?

    Your butthurt: get over it.

    Do dry up, old fruit. You never know, you might actually have a pleasant conversation here if you can attempt to learn something rather than “HURP DURP I WUZ ONLI JOHKIN” after a tirade of what appears to be marijuana inspired ramblings about “whoa the universe is all one, man, it’s aliiiiive”.

    Dude, many of us have been there. We’ve taken the drugs, communicated with the great one vibration of the universe, felt at one with everything, looked at our hand and I mean really looked at our hand, and then we’ve come down and realised that five dried grams of psilocybin mushrooms was probably a bit much after two days in an Amsterdam “coffee” shop solidly smoking the best White Widow money can buy.

    We’ve also realised that the majority of what went on in our heads whilst unbearably whooped was utter bullshit. It’s okay, it didn’t make the next time any less fun!

    Someone trying to be an idiot is worse than an idiot. Everyone in the world is an idiot from time to time, there’s no need to make effort. We are adequately supplied!

    I totally agree, Louis! This is also why I hate so-called “devil’s advocates”–as if there were a shortage of devils in the world. Do you really want to advocate for them? It’s not as bad if they announce it beforehand, for educational purposes, but still.

    And really, what does a person get from a pretense of stupidity. Umm, congratulations, you tricked people into thinking you’re stupid. The big reveal–haha! I’m not as stupid as you thought I was! Okay, champ. You got everyone real good. Now what? Are we supposed to fall down in awe at the amazing feat of mimicking stupidity? That’s actually not super difficult to accomplish. That’s why it’s called stupidity.

    Of course in Raj’s case, “mimicking stupidity” is impossible to distinguish from him just being himself, as Anteprepro demonstrated, so it’s a moot point for him.

    But that last one about ‘divine breasts’, I had no idea some of would take that seriously.

    Yes, it seems entirely beyond you, the idea that someone would take anything you say seriously. Thing is, when people take what you say seriously, you have to think about it, what it means, why you said it, whether you really believe what you said, etc. This is what responsible, intellectually honest people do as a matter of course. That it surprises you is indicative of your failure. Failure of imagination, failure of critical thinking, and failure of basic decency.

    Seriously, I don’t understand the point (if there is a point) that you are trying to make here. That you are a avid drug user, and you know a lot about drugs? What does that prove? That you know how to control your behaviour, and direct your mind, while you are tripping on drugs like LSD or Magic Mushrooms? One question: What usually happens when you take a strong hallucinogen? As in, do you control the drug for the most part, or the drug controls you for the most part of the trip?

    There is no better method for ‘discerning truth’ than the scientific method. This is why I asked some people to read Gary Schwartz’s books. He is a scientist, and he is trying to prove the existence of God through following the scientific method, like a good old properly trained scientist. I know he’s got lots of critics, but he’s also got lots of supporters. Look at both sides when you make a judgement about his work.

    There’s just one big problem with all that, Raj. And it comes in the form of the bolded comment.

    On the one hand, you make the admission that nothing is more reliable than scientific testing, and yet the contradiction here is that Schwartz fails, at a minimum, at Stage 3, which as I pointed out was “submit for peer review”. Or, if he has done that, then there’s nothing to suggest he completed Stage 4, which was to “revise one’s claim”. He certainly didn’t pass Stage 5, which was “retesting it to submit it with a 10% chance of being published” – and I should add that means being published in a CREDIBLE SCIENTIFIC JOURNAL.

    And even if, EVEN IF, he managed to do all that, there is, quite simply, no fucking way he EVER passed Stage 6, wherein “other scientists become vultures, and they (hoping to disprove) analyze your results for years, seeing if they get inconsistent results”, cause I will tell you this Raj: even without him passing Stages 3 through to 5, people who are trained in the real sciences have been picking apart his work for ages.

    Also note, to understand this God concept, you have to do some background study on what this God Concept actually is. Remember, we are NOT talking about God as some BEING, as described in religions like Christianity and Islam. If you have read most of my comments here, then you should know this.

    Would be that it were were it not for the fact that most of your posts here haven’t actually given a fully blown definition of what characteristics and traits your version of “God” is supposed to have. I have observed numerous people here give you many of the most common descriptions of what God tends to entail not just to people of the Abrahamic faiths, but also across many other cultures as well. I recognise that English doesn’t appear to be your first language, but if you’re not actually providing a definite definition of your God and what practical impact it has on the world as well as justifiable reasons for worshipping it, not to mention how we can actually reliably test as per the scientific process for the existence of your God.

    Indeed, I will post the Scientific Process, and it would be very helpful if after each point you show how your God claim passes each of these stages (so eg: “My God claim passes Stage 1 of the scientific process because…” and then likewise for Stages 2 through 8.

    I would greatly appreciate a response.

    Alan Watts was a clever fellow:

    «The attractions of being a trickster guru are many. There is power and there is wealth, and still more the satisfactions of being an actor without need for a stage, who turns “real life” into a drama. It is not, furthermore, an illegal undertaking such as selling shares in non-existent corporations, impersonating a doctor, or falsifying checks. There are no recognized and official qualifications for being a guru, though now that some universities are offering courses in meditation and Kundalini Yoga it may soon be necessary to be a member of the U.S. Fraternity of Gurus. But a really fine trickster would get around all that by the one-upmanship of inventing an entirely new discipline outside and beyond all known forms of esoteric teaching. [...]

    There are two schools of thought about asking for money for your services. One is to have fees just like a doctor, because people are embarrassed if they do not know just what is expected of them. The other, used by the real high-powered tricksters, is to do everything free with, however, the understanding that each student has been personally selected for his or her innate capacity for the work (call it that), and thus be careful not to admit anyone without first putting them through some sort of hazing. Monetary contributions will soon be offered. Otherwise, charge rather heavily, making it dear that the work is worth infinitely more to oneself and to others than, say, expensive surgery or a new home. Imply that you give most of it away to mysterious beneficiaries. [...]

    On the one hand, you yourself must be utterly free from any form of religious or parapsychological superstition, lest some other trickster should outplay you. On the other hand, you must eventually come to believe in your own hoax, because this will give you ten times more nerve. This can be done through religionizing total skepticism to the point of basic incredulity about everything – even science.»

    The comments on this website are not emanating from some Borg-like alien intelligence, so the reason it seems like you vs. the horde is that a lot of us have read your comments, and independently concluded that you are an irritating pissant.

    It doesn’t have to be that way, if you don’t like it. If you would drop your “sophisticated counter-buffoonery” act, and try to learn things and discuss them in good faith, at least some of us would probably be interested in talking to you. The fact is a lot us have been criticized or dog-piled here before.

    If you don’t like being a laughing stock, but you don’t want learn or make intellectually honest comments, you could also consider leaving. Keep in mind that your decision to continue commenting here is your own.

    OK. But don’t tell me you didn’t masturbate to Michelle’s heavenly breasts?

    I didn’t masturbate to Michelle’s HB’s.

    I told you not to tell me!

    You’re one of those premature ejaculators, aren’t you?

    Do you know it’s quite a task to find bare breasts on Youtube, let alone such heavenly bare breasts?

    Is that going to be your convocation speech to the grade 6 boys class?

    Anyways, don’t worry about it. One day your parents will let you have your own computer and you can disable the Parental filters. And one day you may even have enough money to get a hooker to reveal her heavenly ta-tas, but don’t forget to wear a condom so you don’t soak the front of your trousers.

    Right, clearly I need to do something about this. Give me, say, 12 months to get into shape, another 12 months to get into a less comedy shape because the first 12 months will be spent getting proper fat on a diet of bacon and Guinness, and I shall festoon the internet with what can only be described as “ChatRoulette Friendly Hellos”!*

    FYI: Any word incorrectly preceded by “an” should be read aloud in a deep, booming Welsh voice reminiscent of that of an old rugby master of mine. For example: “Boy! You is running like an pregnant yak.** Get an fucking move on boy!”

    Oh, pfft, Louis. One does not need to be in good shape to take an erotic photo.

    Look at this photo of fine example of a random individual, probably taken six years and 15 extra pounds or so ago, when said individual was not in his best shape ever, though I’m just speculating, of course, as this individual is not personally known to me.

    ryanwilkinson, it’s true to say that you are nothing like raj (you are a human being as opposed to an excrescence) but this is setting the bar rather low. The thing to do about the “reviledness” you mention is not to post comments containing anything revolting (hint: as far as I can see, you’re not actually “reviled” – check out the difference between posters’ response to you and to raj; there is a difference. Several people have noted that you have the potential to stop being a dork; unlike excrescences like raj for whom being a dork would be something to aspire to but far, far beyond their reach. But you will probably continue to get hit vigorously with the rubber chicken unless you stop and read and read and read all over Pharyngula for a bit – if you’re interested in sticking around, of course.)

  365. 365
    opposablethumbs

    Not a chance, ryan – for several reasons:
    first and foremost as Caine implied it’s about thinking for yourself; ain’t nobody can do that for you. I just recommend that if you’re interested in things that get discussed around here you should read a lot around the threads that interest you and really think about what you read (fwiw I and a lot of others read a hell of a lot more than we post; it may not be immediately obvious to all, but there is a lot to be learned around here. Like many people, I read and lurked for a while before dipping a toe in. I comment only occasionally, in the full and certain knowledge that there are people a lot smarter and with a lot more relevant experience/expertise than I who have something to say worth saying).
    .
    Secondly I’m just as likely as anyone and more so than many to get shit wrong.
    .
    Thirdly, just because I have an often-misguided inclination to give people the benefit of the doubt a lot of the time sure as hell doesn’t mean I’m necessarily right to do so, nor does it mean that other people who may appear to have a shorter fuse – i.e. those who cut to the chase – are necessarily wrong. In fact I’ve learned since I started hanging around here that more often than not they are right.
    .
    Shorter me: c’mon ryan, if you want to stick around then do – just read, maybe stick to lurking for a while, think before you post (more than you seemed to do on the previous thread when you came in) and be prepared to get very very vigorously apprised of the error of your ways if you say something dumb.

    Sincerely, the heavenliness of the aforementioned breasts (how about the REST of the woman, raj you dolt? are women just collections of body parts to you?) is up to the beholder’s subjective judgment.

    No, not just body parts. And this is exactly the point is …. That mere ‘body parts’ can’t have such power of their own. There must be something else going on, too, of which we are now aware at the moment.

    And I don’t understand this ‘gentlemanly’ attitude of people like you. She has posed topless in both video clips precisely because of her extraordinary breasts, and thus to be seen in a purely sexual context. If she doesn’t mind, and she likes to be seen in this way, what exactly is your problem? Do you think women hate being sexually attractive?

    Just look at your army of clowns, and then at yourself. If you still think I am the one who is trolling, then maybe too much porn has finally done its magic! Or, maybe, DENIAL in capitals is the right way to put it.

    By the way, have you been to a site called ‘Ilovethebeach’? Not exactly porn. But lots and lots of tits. yum!

    From the pfffftt of all knowledge:

    Uriah the Hittite (Hebrew: אוריה החתי) was a soldier in King David’s army mentioned in the Hebrew Bible. He was the husband of Bathsheba, and was murdered by order of David by having the soldiers retreat from him in battle. Uriah’s wife was pregnant by King David through an adulterous affair. Although under David’s order to return home and see his wife, Uriah repeatedly refused to leave his post or leave the King’s presence to see her. Contact between the couple could have hidden the adulterous nature of her pregnancy by David. As a result of this murder, David was rebuked by the prophet Nathan; furthermore, later turmoil in David’s household and throughout the kingdom of Israel, including the death of Bathsheba’s baby and the insurrection of prince Absalom, was contemporarily explained as punishment for the sins of adultery and murder.

    Although under David’s order to return home and see his wife, Uriah repeatedly refused to leave his post or leave the King’s presence to see her.

    Technically, then, Uriah disobeyed a direct order from his King, making his execution justifiable for treason.

    The bible pioneered rules lawyering.

    and the insurrection of prince Absalom, was contemporarily explained as punishment for the sins of adultery and murder

    The trigger for Absalom’s revolt was the rape of his full sister by his (and her) half-brother, another one of David’s sons. (None of them being related to Bathsheba in any way, either)

    So what in hell did she do to deserve that?

    First, thanks for the instructions you gave to A.R. in the comments on the first TZT, which helped me install the gumby script on Greasemonkey.

    Second, I’m assuming the test didn’t work, since I didn’t see a gumby or comic sans in Firefox or IE. Let me know in these comments if you remember what it is, thanks.

    Anyway, I use Chrome and IE more than Firefox, and I was wondering if I could use greasemonkey scripts in these browsers. With a little research I managed to install the script for comic sans on Chrome (use Google Chrome Beta), and I downloaded a program called Trixie, which lets you install GM scripts in IE. However, I can’t figure out how to use Trixie (I can’t access it thru my tools menu like the site I downloaded it from said I could). I’m still working at it, so I might be able to figure it out.

    Christianity gave us shape-note singing, it’s one (very small) mitigating factor.

    For a while in the 19th century, it was used in some secular folk music as well, but I don’t know which might have come first. Either way, Christians probably put it to the most use, but I think a lot of that has to do with a church congregation (even a small one) being more able to afford sheet music than a household or a folk band or whatever. And households which could afford sheet music looked down on that sort of thing, sometimes both the style of the music and the “dumbed-down” form of notation.

    Dying peacefully in his sleep of a ripe old age and being remembered as the Bible’s equivalent of George Washington doesn’t seem all that broken, does it?

    Have you studied them?
    Are you a female breast expert?
    Do you have a link to a peer reviewed scientific study that supports the idea that the breasts of human females has any ‘power’?

As in, why a large number of heterosexual men get a ‘rise’ out of viewing breasts, but some don’t. Most do, but some don’t.

    Do you have a link to a peer reviewed scientific study that supports the idea that the breasts of human females has any ‘power’?

    Not yet. The idea is so original that I think I’ll be the first one to write a peer reviewed paper on this.

    And Sally, I can’t see your video. It says:

    The uploader has not made this video available in your country.
    Sorry about that.
