They are the true examples of Berkeleitis, projecting their own Berkeleitiac's consciousness onto the world outside of them.

Calling others Berkeleitiacs when they themselves are the Berkeleitiacs.

If a poster's got to hide his true identity, he must be a little tiny bit insecure. If he/she is posting here, they soon figure out that they post at their own risk. It's the learning/experience curve. And some, of course, never seem to learn at all, probably, though my experience here is so short.

Hell, I did the hello/goodbye already. I freely admit that I'm not very mature for my years, which, of course, was my life goal...

Tony B.

and i'll say it again, it's refreshing to have a polish fellow accusing so many others of stupidity.

I can help you Tony B.

i have to apologize--i was way down the golden state freeway into the flatulent bowels of orange county this morning when i realized that i totally confabulated moosedrool and eeyonkee. i do believe you are separate guys, no? but with both of you going on simultaneous evolution threads, i'm sure i just put you in the same place in my, as i quoted portia, little mind. the only excuse i can offer is that i perceived an apparent ungulatory connection, assuming eeyonkee has some sort of affinity for eeyore, winnie the poohbear's buddy. perhaps he's flattered to be mistaken for a supercerebral pole.

i've done this before, to my everlasting embarrassment--confusing "looking sketchy there" for "the user formerly known as stzzo" on a joshua tree thread. but geez, guys, you'd make it easier if you just posted as yourselves.

i've always enjoyed hearing polish, MD--a feathery-sounding, fascinating language. i've had enough russian to get a very tenuous handle on it.

amazing, isn't it, don paul, how a convicted murderer of the iconic stature of charles manson would be given a public platform to spew on this subject? most of those monsters go away forever. but if they're useful ...

You didn't really watch the video, did ya Tony.

supertopo is harried by little minds who can't really hold forth in their alleged fields of expertise, so they come on here and try to show off. eeyonkee's* recent thread is a case in point. why aren't these guys posting on math and biophysics forums with all their good friends and colleagues? i'm guessing they need a much smaller pond in which to play the big fish.

Just for the record, Tony, evolution is an avocation of mine. It's not what I do. I have a Master's degree in Geology, which I worked in for 13 years. I have worked as a software engineer for the past 12 years. Your posts show an inclination for insulting others. Your posts about evolution show that you are severely lacking in understanding of this subject. All in all, you are quite a tool!

You know, Donini can't reply much tonight. I just saw a recent shot of him talking down at the Ice Fest in Ouray with Jeff Lowe.

no, i didn't watch the video. like i say, way too many links and videos on here, and no one seems to be able to communicate otherwise. i'm assuming it's what i can read on the page--charles manson lending his considerable influence and prestige to the 9/11 truth movement. since we're talking about evolution on this thread, i also assume it's just another little pebble being lobbed my way. or are we working charles manson into the evolution debate? since you have so much time to watch all these things, monolith, why don't you tell us what it's about? i guess you just rushed back here after finding the answer to your question about hilbert transformations on soaps.com. i was expecting the next post to be "hannibal lechter's presidential picks".

and while i've got your attention, you and graniteclimber--same guy, right?

evolution is an avocation of mine too, eeyonkee. your post also shows an inclination to insult others (me, for instance), and i think, to put it in your words, that you are "severely lacking in your understanding" of many aspects of evolution. take note there--two important differences in our rhetoric. i said, "i think you are" and you said, "you are". i said "aspects of evolution" and you said "evolution".

by the way, i must apologize again for confusing you with moosedrool. i may not know much, but i should be expected to be able to count toes on ungulates.

it seems that we had riley on here adhering to a random mutation point of view as the engine of evolution. then we had someone post a paper--i believe it was moosedrool--which seemed to bolster my point of view, that there is an actively experimental aspect, simply because adaptation seems to take place so quickly. would you care to address that, eeyonkee?

Nothing personal I hope Tony, you are putting yourself in the center of this thread and advocating multiple crazy ideas at the same time. But you are in good company anyway:

hahaha, I've thought that myself... but then, I am not "here" to talk about physics or any other science, I'm "here" for climbing (and I find I'm less and less "here" because of the lack of it).

I agree with you Ed. As a New Years resolution I've decided to limit my posts on here. It's sad what Supertopo has become. I wonder when Chris will pull the plug.

This place is not a peer review site just opinions and loose general discussions.

You guys take yourselves so seriously you lose your whole experience.

People put all kinds of ideas opinions and whatnot on this site and some of you go ballistics with a fascist agenda of being right.

That's why I always display the sarcastic line "Americans are Stupid" to further infuriate the fools who fall for that line ......

"Americans are Sutpid" - I disagree, although some may be.

Anyway, thanks for not including us Canuckleheads in that.

eeyonkee, it's a tough row to hoe, eh? :)

Here's what I've learned (or here's what's been reinforced) from participating here:

If there's this much misunderstanding / miscommunication from posting (which is a written system) you can just imagine how much there was long long ago amongst our ancient forebears before written systems were invented or before they evolved. And you can just imagine how much this led to violence.

Participating here is a reminder of why, back in the day, it was wise NOT to discuss religion or politics esp outside your tribe or family.

Supertopo forum, thanks for the lessons.

.....

Hypothesis: Better understanding, along with better communication systems, lead to a decline of violence.

May or may not be a correct hypothesis, I think.
