Tony, this thread is bumping off other climbing-related content, and it's a subject that's been covered mannnny times. You do realize that, don't you?

"politics, god and religion versus science" is now "why do so many people believe in God"

I should have left the 'politics' off the title
But I was reading alot about Fox News back then, and how they bastardize science, so I thought we could talk about that here.

But that is just more "Why Republicans are wrong"
And doesn't belong, but you can't go back and change the title

there was an offbump from the god thread, dealing with evolution, i believe, that became the most visually hilarious thing on supertopo since the passing of the late, great ouch!, whose reign of mirth i unfortunately missed. but someone nuked that thread. pate may have been involved. he had this terrific nun obsession going, but i'm afraid he somehow got over it.

and where is locker these days?

apogee, i hate to put it this way, but i find at least 50 percent of the climbing content on supertopo to be, how can i say it, way lame. that's the nicest i can come up with. if you want great climbing content, come up with great climbing content and let it outshine everything else here in discussionland. you won't do that, and neither will i, or anyone else. be happy with the mix the way it is. do you discuss nothing but climbing when you go climbing and camping with your buds? if you do, you gotta be the boringest partner on the planet. we talk about politics, religion, science, relationships with the opposite sex, and offbeat, funny things--the stuff of OT here.

Conflict - humans love/hate drama

Climbing is a conflict of sorts

Build some conflict into a thread and it's a keeper

Tony, the subject of the imbalance of OT threads vs. the kinds of threads that this Forum is intended for (and the related argument, 'Climbing Forum' vs. 'Climber's Forum') is so well-trodden and beat to death...what is your goal with this thread?

i think i stated my goal pretty clearly at the outset, but if you want the short version (haha, with apologies to dr. F, of course), it's to stir up all the flies that are covering the cowpie.

anyway, have at it. i was supposed to go climbing with medusa today, but he seems to be sleeping in, not sure why. i think an interesting thread idea might be: what effect would a buzzcut have on the nature of the 'duse?

Tony, not trying to rip on you, but before you go, nuke this thread. It's just taking up space.

apogee, old top, i get so goddam tired of all the calls to nuke threads. discussion is free, and we have to assume that chrismac's storage space approaches googleplexity. there's never any restraint about posting memory-gobbling pictures of fannies from below or seconds coming up on toprope. the big problem with criticism on ST is that people like you are control freaks who want to dictate to everyone else. i'm trying to loosen a logjam here, and you don't even seem to appreciate that.

What I don't get
Is why some losers have something crawl up their butt

and go all wacko on my ass, calling me names, evil, and totally responsible for the Threads that have the name Dr. F attached

Then there are the people that think they can shut it down by posting long BS articles, or repeating pics

It's not my fault, I am not responsible for the content

I am just a Name,
it's not me

Politics, God and Religion & Science is the root infrastructure of all humanity.

It's weaved into everything including climbing.

It's stupid narrow minded morons on this site who think climbing is only on it's own independent island .......

hey there say, tony...


wow, for a bit, you three here, have had a nice little chat going on, :)


just now (as i stepped in) noticed:
more folks are dropping in now, too--seems we are curious
as to what you got to say...
or--curious as what kind of 'analysis' is going on, :)

not content to douche on the progressives,
decided to lump half of climbers in with them

sounds like a general hate problem

not a issue with climbers or folks who want your kids to get a good enducation
