Hello there

#1  Postby Gord » Mar 26, 2016 8:02 am

Hi. I'm Gord. No relation.

Signed up mostly so I could Search for posts on some particular topic or other, I forget which one now. :ask: I got distracted reading something else. Now I can't remember what I was going to ask when I started this thread.

Huh!

Gettin' old....

Anyway, I post a lot on the, uh...other skeptics forum somewhere. Wow. Memory's really failing here. The forum's name has a lot of esses in it, I remember that much. Oh jeez right, the Skeptic Society Forum! And I was looking for information on Acharya S / D. M. Murdoch's book about Moses. Nope, couldn't find anything about it. Probably got distracted, though.

Nice ta meet ya.

I like the smilies here. :naughty2: Dang we need some of these over at that other place. :what: Ooh, especially this one: :eh:

Anyway, uh, hi. I think I'll be back -- today's Saturday, right? -- I'll need to get to sleep soon, gotta go shopping for, um, food in the morning. Hopefully I'll remember how to get back here again.

Keep a light on for me! :drunk: wait that's a bottle, not a candle

Ooh! Jig smilie! :dance:

Hello! I managed to find my way back. Need to remember "rational" when I come looking for it.

Welcome aboard, hope you remember to come back. We do have a thread or two re Acharya S as I recall. Give it a search.
The problem with fantasies is you can't really insist that everyone else believes in yours, the other problem with fantasies is that most believers of fantasies eventually get around to doing exactly that.

I did. I was specifically hoping to find any criticism of her (I think last?) book, the one about Moses.

Because I've read some of her other crap, and I don't want to read this last book, but I also don't want to judge something I haven't read. I'm torn between the horror of reading one more piece of crap, and the ignorance of denouncing something I haven't read!

Also: Laziness. Very many lazinesses. (Wait: Why isn't spellcheck catching "lazinesses" as a misspelling?) (Good Gord, it's an actual word! https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/lazinesses "The plural of laziness!")

NEVAR!! :plot:

I keep running into Acharya fans who insist she's a genius and that everyone agrees with her except me. The better angels of my nature tells me to bite them, bite them hard!



...and I resisted the smilies in order not to look like a total kook. :crazy:

In your own words, you are torn and you bite. There is no mystery. Sounds like super-hero, innit? ;)

Oh.

I prefer Florida Man. That guy's awesome! ...except when he's not.

Florida Man Bitten By His Pit Bull After Ordering Dog To Attack Cops

That one's a "not".

Florida Man seeks votes in New York

This one's an "awesome"...sort of.

If Florida Man went "PLORP", that would indeed be an improvement.
