Yeah, that's some bad ass flat earth viddeo intoxication, dude. Or not, maybe.

Since kaka is a banned sockpuppet, and therefore not a member of the forum, would I be within the forum rules if I suggested that he's a fucking idiot?

Kaka, you were indeed an incompetent moron with one of Ray Comfort's pulverised bananas where a brain ought to be. :D

You guys on this forum are pretty ignorant to not consider any viewpoint outside your "cube". I hope you wake up and at least don't "bannhammer" everyone who comes along and has another viewpoint. What if I was Jewish and want to preach the Talmud to people here to clear up confusion? Anyway, end the federal reserve by forcing a state near you to accept Open Source(blockchain) Digital Voting machines so we may vote some good people into our Constitutional Republic and save our future. Have a good day, I await the "bannhammer" for insulting fellow board members. Thank you for your time and attention.

Read the rules (here is the link) - preaching is NOT allowed, from Talmud or any other mighty tome. Discuss it, yes.
[Reveal] Spoiler: hit this link too
1.5. not engage in theistic preaching, proselytising and/or witnessing either on the forum or via PM. If you are a theist you are freely permitted to discuss religion and your religious faith but you may not purposely harass or pressure other members to convert or to accept the ‘truth’ of your theistic beliefs and/or doctrine. In particular you may not overtly or covertly imply that other members are sinners or that they are likely to experience religious or other supernatural consequences for their thoughts, words, or actions.

OK, I'll have fun with this ...

shannonleeshort wrote:You guys on this forum are pretty ignorant


Actually, several of the people here are tenured professional scientists, and as a corollary, are likely to know a hell of a lot more about the requisite topics than some random self-aggrandising fruitcake. Even those of us who aren't tenured professional scientists have well-developed bullshit detectors, courtesy of having seen so much bullshit being tossed in our direction and peddled as purportedly constituting fact. You might want to factor this into your future deliberations.

As for this fruitcake's idea that Planet Earth is flat, even some elementary observation conductable by each and every one of us tells us that this is nonsense. Such as the fact that if the Earth were flat, I would be able to point a telescope southwards from the vantage point of an aircraft at 25,000 feet, and see Australia. Except that, oops, I can't.

Likewise, as for his fatuous assertion that the Earth is purportedly "infinite in extent", do you think I would have failed to notice this when viewing the night sky through a telescope? Along with millions of other amateur astronomers? Oh wait, people have been pointing telescopes at the night sky for something like 400 years, and the one thing we don't see is an infinitely wide solid disc under our feet. That's before we factor in the fun and games this would result in, with respect to the orbits of the other planets in the Solar System, not to mention the transition between day and night with respect to the relative motions of Earth and Sun. The only way in which day could turn into night on a flat Earth, is if the Sun moved below the rim of the disc, but oops, if that disc was actually infinite in extent, it wouldn't be able to do this without colliding with said disc. I think we'd notice an object of that size bumping into the planet, don't you? Especially one that happens to be a gigantic nuclear fusion reactor with a surface temperature of 5,500 Kelvins, and a core temperature in the region of 10 million Kelvins.

So before you accuse people who paid attention in science class of being "ignorant", you might want to try checking for yourself the observable consequences of the assertions we're pointing and laughing at, for the reasons I've provided above, and several others, including what a certain Mr A. Einstein had to say about sufficiently large masses.

shannonleeshort wrote:to not consider any viewpoint outside your "cube".


Oh wait, it's precisely because we're aware of what would be observed if the requisite assertions were true, and note that we don't observe the requisite consequences of those assertions being realised, that we're pointing and laughing at this fruitcake's drivel. We're pointing and laughing because we know of numerous substantive reasons why it's complete hooey, some of which I've just provided above.

shannonleeshort wrote:I hope you wake up and at least don't "bannhammer" everyone who comes along and has another viewpoint.


Actually, you'll find we've put up with all manner of pedlars of drivel for a very long time. The Creationism subforum has a nice selection for you to peruse at leisure, all of whose assertions have been demonstrated not only to be complete hooey, but in some cases to be outright lies. Yet we still let them post here.

The reason some people are evicted here, is because they've repeatedly transgressed the rules they signed up to when joining the forum. Yet, even some egregious offenders have had to wait a long time for this to happen, because the moderation here is conducted with a relatively light touch. I've been here long enough to vouch for this, and indeed, one frequent complaint I encounter is that the moderation is too lenient with obvious miscreants.

shannonleeshort wrote:What if I was Jewish and want to preach the Talmud to people here to clear up confusion?


If you want to peddle mythology as if it constituted fact, then you'll receive the same treatment as any other supernaturalist doing the same for his or her pet mythology. Namely, find your posts being shredded by those of us who recognise that mythology isn't fact.

Hmm, spam.

Here's a clue for you. If you think insulting the membership is a good way of getting them to accept your spam, then you need to spend some time learning how the real world works.

Spare me your entirely synthetic ingratiation. I have enough of this from politicians to fend off, usually politicians who privately think of me as vermin to be exterminated.

Welcome to the forum I guess. What's with reviving a four year old thread? :what:

It seems to me to be pretty foolish to assume that no one on this forum has not considered "any viewpoint outside [our] "cube"". Ever consider that we may have considered such things and dismissed them as a result, as false, insufficiently supported by evidence, or conflicting with what evidence we do have etc.?

The (baseless) claims linked to from the OP are simply ludicrous and flies in the face of all available evidence.

shannonleeshort wrote:I hope you wake up and at least don't "bannhammer" everyone who comes along and has another viewpoint.

Was this in reference to the OP, who was banned as a result of being uncovered as a repeat offender in creating sock-puppet accounts, which is in direct violation of the Forum User's Agreement (FUA). In other words they were NOT banned for having another viewpoint (we have had many many members with opposing views here, some have been active for years), but for breaking the forum rules, upon which membership is granted.

shannonleeshort wrote:What if I was Jewish and want to preach the Talmud to people here to clear up confusion?

If you had read the FUA you would know full well that preaching is likewise against the rules. You may try to argue about and explain the Talmud (or whatever else you like), but preaching at people is just annoying and counter-productive.

shannonleeshort wrote: Anyway, end the federal reserve by forcing a state near you to accept Open Source(blockchain) Digital Voting machines so we may vote some good people into our Constitutional Republic and save our future.

You chose to post this in this thread, and this comment is wildly off-topic. :naughty: If you want to argue for that then start another thread on the topic. :nono:

shannonleeshort wrote:Have a good day, I await the "bannhammer" for insulting fellow board members.

Direct insults are indeed a violation of the FUA rules. As they are not constructive and hardly a viable replacement for an actual argument or relevant point. :nono: They are not grounds for immediate banning however. Do you perhaps have some sort of martyr complex or something?

shannonleeshort wrote:Thank you for your time and attention.

You're welcome.


Is there actually something relevant to this thread OP that you agree with, and do you have any arguments to support it? Or was your sole reason for coming here to throw out that "You are all willfully ignorant' empty snide remark? :think:
