Re: Shall Mr Vacula Make a Misstep in the Capital of Eire?

Well, that was easy. Here I was thinking it would need to be something specific like PZ's book tanking, him getting taken to the cleaners by Shermer's legal team, nearly losing his job over this bullshit, and having to e-beg his way to the next round of crazy-assed feminist pseudoskeptic conference...

Re: Shall Mr Vacula Make a Misstep in the Capital of Eire?

I really really really want Rystefn to make some specific prediction, which comes true, so that I can then congratulate him with: "Well, Rystefn nailed it". http://i.imgur.com/PIVNmRF.png I assume nothing so banal as "PZ will still be a useless dipshit and Twatson will still be an insufferable cunt...

Re: Shall Mr Vacula Make a Misstep in the Capital of Eire?

As I'm a relative newcomer to observing most of this drama, am I right in thinking that the charge of 'hyperskepticism' is simply what most people would call, er, skepticism? I feel like Mugatu during the big reveal in Zoolander. Hyperskepticism is the same as hyperawesomeness: not possible. Honest...

Re: Shall Mr Vacula Make a Misstep in the Capital of Eire?

Which is why teaching proper skepticism should come ahead of teaching any of the results. I know, good luck with that, right? It's hard all right. Trying to teach high school kids to question some of their beliefs (like the "Illuminati controls rap stars" - a new one on me, or "mermaids are real" [...

Re: Shall Mr Vacula Make a Misstep in the Capital of Eire?

Sad to see a guy who used to fight creationists doing the same things they do - making up their own definitions, casting blame on everyone else, the whole nine yards. For the most part, the people who fight creationists are as ignorant and as stupid as the creationists themselves. Most of them supp...

Re: Shall Mr Vacula Make a Misstep in the Capital of Eire?

How do these people function in the real world? :doh: I suspect that they don't, and that's why they fled to crazy-town. As GWW said in her video "Atheism, You Asked for It" and Franc wrote in his latest blog post, what the Atheism and Skeptical movement did, in order to go "big tent' and bring in ...

Re: Shall Mr Vacula Make a Misstep in the Capital of Eire?

Let's not forget the infamous photo of Becca Twatson having a dollar bill shoved down her bra. Either that photo took place before she went full retard or the dudebro in the picture was one of the few males she allows to treat her like a stripper. You mean anyone that can make her feel like an attr...
