I just don't get it? Why do you guys hate me? Why taking all those cheap shots?

I do not know. Rather than hating the player, I recommend that they instead should hate the game.

Personally, I hate the players that take advantage of the game.

Because you are a thug MC badass who could clock me out in one. I am very jealous.

For me, it's because you are smug, ignorant, and stubborn. In other words, I'm a hypocrite.

That is quite a stance, to state that you do not believe anything.

Why is it so hard to believe that people would come to a forum simply to debate?  A lot of people like to debate, a lot of people like to insult people whose opinions they disagree with, a lot of people like to troll.  This is a simple concept, I don't understand why it's so difficult to grasp.

OK you guys don't believe me that I am an OG, so I wrote a little rap verse for yo all, check this out;

You may say I'm a troll like MR Trollala that lame Russian Youtube singer, it aint no lie that I spit verses like curses show you how worser then worst gets, cause a thug like me got lost in the infinite earths, Gather winds from four corners like four horsemen, call me Ric Flair cause I'm a legend in this game a true player, call me Sid Vicious, cry babies use tissues, I'm a lyrical genius, all scientific like Tom Bishop, You can't come back at me with your weak ass raps, I bust caps like Scarface and leave police without a case, no trace no evidence just blood stains on the snow cause I come from the Go, Chi Town ILLA the middle of the map for sure.
No this is not true at all. I'm a rapper I opened up for Three Six Mafia and Bone Thugs few times. I like to have fun and goof around a little bit on this forum, but I have no plot or no plan.
Can we pretty please make the thread about this?  Please?

Although I'm sorry, that verse was pretty weak.  It was alright, but nothing more.

I decided to join here first off because I find the FET hilarious, and second off because I love arguing with people and this seems to be a place meant for that purpose.

I do, however, mean no disrespect towards the FEr's. No matter how retarded or ludicrous I find their theories, they are still entitled to their own opinion about the subject. As I am entitled to do my best to convince them otherwise. This is what I like. I also join religious debates whereever I find them. There are interesting parallels to the FES, as in they are both excellent examples of denialism taken to the extreme.

Because he thinks that all RE'ers are puppets and just choose to believe in the RET simply because it was taught to us in schools and we'll never question the undying word of other RE scientists. He thinks we're all believers, and not able to conduct experiments and come to logical conclusions from the results for ourselves.
Scepti, this idiocy needs to stop and it needs to stop right now. You are making a mockery of this fine forum with your poor trolling. You are a complete disgrace.

So because he doesn't know everything about the world around him, he needs to believe in things? This is the road a religious man takes, we're not all religious.

Believing the sun is made of hydrogen is not the same as believing in a God.

You obviously haven't ever studied anything remotely considered a science. It doesn't take belief to know the sun is composed of hydrogen.

And what are you getting at anyway? You don't need belief in science. If you come up with a hypothesis, you aren't believing it's true and start moulding theories around what is observed as fact in order to keep your hypothesis alive. FE'ers do exactly this, but it'll obviously be denied to no end.

This is a semantics argument.

Whether you have evidence of a belief or not is irrelevant as to whether you believe it or not.

I am going to stop you there, because science actually is based on faith. So actually, it does require belief.

How do you know the sun is there? It takes it's light several minutes to reach us (in the RE model). You are merely assuming that it is still there.

You are taking it on faith that it is still going to be there.




This has nothing to do with belief in God.

That's retarded. Only intense schools of thought challenge things so blatantly obvious. Take my door-causality experiment for example: How do you know slamming a door causes a sound? You absolutely don't, but who the hell challenges something so obvious?

Thank you for agreeing with me that you don't know.

People challenge this to point out that it is invalid to try to undermine a "faith" based argument saying that it needs to be more "scientific" which was what I was stating in response to a person that was doing just this.

Also, this is basic epistomology, not an "intense school of thought".
