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.

The problem, as distasteful a fact as it is, is that much of our problems as humans are psychological and behavioral. Thus, even in a thread devoted ostensibly to science (reason and disciplined process) a large part of it is dominated or at least attempted domination by an agenda of narcissisistic imperialism - those uninterested in a co-operative effort to evolve.

Frustrating yes, but a reality none the less that must be engaged with, as opposed to avoided.

If Tony were ever to gain a lectern and stage at a real conference of science with true experts of whatever the topic is, he would get about two minutes of opinion then be ruthlessly slaughtered by the peer review process and shown the door, mostly because he's not worth the time and energy best directed to the purpose at hand.

That can't happen here of course but we can give it the good college try, because the alternative stinks.

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.

Braun - What the hell are you talking about? Fascistic? If you want to just shittalk then there are thtreads devoted to exactly that. If its something more technical like science or policy or butt plugs then there are threads for that as well and the best ideas and commentary floats to the top. egalitarianism dosn't mean that whatever spewsout is of equal merit. It means you have equal opportunity, but if you blow that opportunity then you get a swift boot ( well, swift but not necessarily mean) to the back of the bus.

Unless of course you live in a Fox News world where even stupid ideas are equal due to a "Fair and balanced" ethos. And thats why you have red states.

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

Are you Polish Herr Braun ;)

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.

An egocentric claim, but he's certainly a symptom.

And so also is his claim on the title.

i dunno, don paul--you were the one putting charles manson's support of 9/11 conspiracy theory on here--and then telling us you couldn't understand what he said.

at the risk of being ruthlessly slaughtered by scientific peers, i will venture that this thread is approaching critical mass. before we all climb onto andy divine's bronco ride, i'd like to have two thing clarified: are monolith and graniteclimber identical entities? is moosedrool italian or polish?

When you watch the 13 second video, Tony, you might understand why you look like a paranoid fool. He says nothing about 911.

i'll make you a deal, monolith. i'll watch don paul's 13 seconds of truth if you'll answer my question truthfully. you will have to be able to convince me, however, that you are not lying.

An impossible task. May I suggest you use one of your standard tools of inquiry and perform the witch test on me. If I drown, I'm telling the truth.
