Chuff is not a skeptic he is a cynic.

A skeptic looks for evidence while a cynic dissmisses evidence

the interesting logic of The Chief seems to be:

Galileo was a skeptic
I'm a skeptic

therefore, I'm just like Galileo....


I "know" Galileo, and The Chief is no Galileo...

Nice try ... but.... NOPE!


There ya go again EDH, ASSUMING once again.

Ah! So now one that does not go along with the current day "belief" and the "consensus" that perpetuates that belief, is now a "crack pot".

No silly! I meant you specifically. I dunno about the rest of your merry men. I'd assume a greater recurrence of cracked pottery in the denier crowd but that's just a guess.

Your case, on the other hand, is chronic and you show multiple symptoms.

Nice attempt at glomming on the 80% but you outliers are out there for a reason. Consensus will never be your province. If it was you'd leave.

Jeeeeeeeeeeeeesh, Fartmental. Really. Appears your spouse did (RXwives)... make that shet up for ya.


You really should stick to cut and pasting photos of WWI "fails". You show some sense of true accomplishment at doing that.


Your case, on the other hand, is chronic and you show multiple symptoms.

From the latest I hear out there on the field about you Dingus and your current life escapades, that comment is obviously coming from your long term "trend" at, here it is... being one.


I will add though, that is a far better leveling of humanness and any sense of individuality that one Fartmental could ever have.

Maybe you can get together with him/it and share some of your deep experiences at being that grand "crack pot" that you truly are. It could only better his current condition. Not make it any worse. You could also maybe teach how to climb so he can one day actually "send" something.

Never mind about my last part above. That last portion of your post indicates that you have been with.... Fartmental.

Can we get a consensus on the idea that this thread never fails to amuse?




I don't find it amusing it all. I find it depressing and frustrating that a sizable minority of willfully ignorant and arrogant so-called "skeptics" have hijacked a national conversation about what to do about a grave problem. It's sad, but the idiots have control. If this was an arcane, academic issue then it might be amusing. But it's not.

So my assumption regarding you spending time with Farmental and sharing your deep experiences and advice is TRUE.

Yet you still actively & regularly participate.

Yes, FM, arguing with chief is a waste of time. Not because he's wrong but because he's a liar.

k-man,

As a lurker, I guess I'm too slow on the draw for the furious speed of this thread. Regarding your post a couple of pages back, a fuller definition of "consensus" from Merriam would make it seem a pretty good representation of the the situation among actual climate scientists. The abbreviated defintion doesn't match very well.

Full Definition of CONSENSUS
1
a : general agreement : unanimity
b : the judgment arrived at by most of those concerned
2
: group solidarity in sentiment and belief

Otherwise, as you said: "carry on".

Thanks for concurring Dingus.

Ed,
I typed in your name and where you are from in the white pages, and yes....you are a real person. Up front with nothing to hide. I went back several pages on this thread and you are the only one. You never cease to impress me.

Roger, I was intrigued with your claim that the only real person posting on the last several pages was Ed. He, Ed, isn't the only individual unafraid of voicing and standing behind what they represent as who and where they really are. Everyone knows who and where The Chief is as well as the endless repetition of who and where Bruce Kay is.

Tony, point taken.

And as Norton stated about the semantics, or wording, of the general agreement, it perpetuates a diversion. I understand that the issue is a serious one and it's a shame that clowns pull down the discussion to their level (and I don't mean just on this thread).

Arguing about how few real scientists object to the findings of the mind-blowingly large majority of climate scientists is a waste of precious time.
