Hopefully not. Babies are too young to be stuck in one of them.


Ah, maybe you weren’t around when this was a thing.

She revelled in adventure and imagination.

Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.

No, I meant maybe you haven’t been here all the time non-stop. There was a poster here (a troll) who asked that, in an attempt to promulgate the idea that he was the serious one. You know how it goes. P

Ah. I see. And yes, I missed that poster's question and hence the context of your comment.

I regret the post, it's now stuck in my head. The only cure is to sing It's a Small World After All.

Sofista wrote:could you show examples of pseudo-skepticism?



Sure: examples of pseudoskepticism:

http://www.rationalskepticism.org/relig ... l#p2705380

Sofista wrote:The Scientific Method still can not prove the existence of the spirits and the life after the death !!



http://www.rationalskepticism.org/relig ... l#p2705397

Sofista wrote: just because something hasn't been proven and established in mainstream science doesn't mean it doesn't exist or isn't true. If it did, then nothing would exist until proven or discovered.



http://www.rationalskepticism.org/relig ... l#p2705402

Sofista wrote:For Pseudo-Skeptics, reliable evidence must be measurable in some conventional way and reproduced at our disposal. The problem with that is that what we can measure is still limited to our level of technology.



http://www.rationalskepticism.org/relig ... l#p2705415

Sofista wrote:Then prove that spirits do not exist? Inversion of the burden of proof is a pseudo-skeptic argument !!
