  1. And STILL no answers to my questions. Just more cowardly tee hee hee instead. If we say "deniers" often enough, we don't have to answer the questions. All-you-can eat steamed octopus for only a buck ninety five, all day, every day! J ♪ ♫ Give me that AGW religion. It's good enough for Billy, so it's good enough for me.♬♩
  2. Yes, we need to mete out the punishments right now. We can't wait any longer. The climate gods crave blood. We must quench their thirsts. The Little Others™ must experience more hardship while forced to pay for our studies and cushy lifestyles. Pain. Glorious austerity. It's so very exciting! J
  3. Billy, your religion didn't do too well in Australia. Btw, why do "Labor" parties continue to call themselves "Labor" now that they're openly opposed to workers and labor? Australia’s Conservatives Win Surprise Election Victory Voters in mining areas turned on center-left opposition that had campaigned on climate change issues, preliminary results show SYDNEY—Australia’s conservative government eked out a surprise victory in Saturday’s national elections after voters in resource-rich districts turned against center-left opponents who had put climate change at the heart of their campaign... https://www.wsj.com/articles/australias-conservatives-appear-set-to-win-surprise-victory-11558186774
  4. You didn't answer my questions or address my points. As usual, you didn't even grasp them. J
  5. So, define "viability." How is an individual's viability determined, and why? If an entity possesses indivual rights, is it reasonable for us to kill it if it is inhabiting another's being or property against the will of the owner, though not by its own choosing? If you were to actually apply objectivity, logic and reason to the issue, rather than trying to prop up Rand's half-baked emotings, what would you come up with? J
  6. He's the perfect personification of the AGW control and punish mindset. Personally, I'd rather see someone calmly present 'the science' (titter tee hee hee). But, since we all know that that's not going to happen, what's the next best thing? Nye? AOC? Gore? DiCaprio? Steamed Octopus? No. I think a better method would be to just be honest. Identify the real motives. State them publicly: Punishment and control. Openly promote the bloodlust excitement if it. No need to tie it to side issues involving fear or victimhood in order to pretend to justify it. J
  7. My only worry is that Phil might be attempting with his students what he tried to inflict on us. The man was aggressively psychologically needy, and so much so that his feeding his deficiencies overrode any value that he could bring to a discussion. Which says a lot, because he's a smart dude who can bring it. Satisfying the urge to control and punish was more important, more powerful than any subject. I hope he's fighting that urge when it comes to his students. J
  8. Helloooo? Just checking in. Has Merlin made any progress learning projective geometry? Many questions and challenges on this thread remain unanswered, unmet. And some probably remain ungrasped. Is Wikipedia still fucked up from Merlin's molestations? Heh. What a shitshow. J
  9. Heh. That's a "TANTRUM"? And that's a "real" interviewer with "difficult" questions? Mr. Shapiro, I've selectively misinterpreted some fragments of your past statements to mean what I want them to mean. I gotcha. Defend yourself against my accusations. Pro Boss Real Interviewer right there. Is he the male Cathy Newman? J
  10. And not answering is very important to Billy. The dodging and the distractions are similar to the methods used by highly religious people when asked difficult questions about their beliefs. The attitude change is also interesting. Usually, Billy can laugh at anything. Not this. It's as if it's personal. Sacred? J
  11. Oh, no, you poor victim! They™ have challenged you to support your position, and They™ won't let you bullshit your way out of it? They™ are not falling for your dodges and distractions? How mean of Them™! Poor, poor darling!
  12. Speaking of predictions, Billy, do you have any answers to my questions yet? 'Member all of those times that I asked about successful predictions? I've been predicting that you can't and won't answer them. What does that say about my hypothesis? J
  13. Let me guess before following the link: Doom? Punishment and control needed? Freedom bad? J
  14. The little people need more punishment and pain: https://news.yahoo.com/million-species-risk-extinction-one-them-085309131.html
  15. Indeed! The reactionaries will definitely be having conniptions and using the ice stories above to push for more punishments and controls. J
  16. Um, Pup, you can't copyright someone else's work. Adding text to someone else's work that you stole from an online source doesn't make it yours. The copyright belongs to Dr. Ron Blakey, Professor Emeritus NAU Geology and Deep Time Maps™. https://www.businessinsider.com/maps-of-north-american-continent-2012-7 J
  17. Oh, noes!!! Are we all going to die? Will the world end in 11 and a half years? What do we have to do to save existence, Billy? Punish and control other people? In a few years, when old Arctic ice is no longer the frantic panic du jour because the predictions failed again, and the ice is increasing again, the focus will switch again to a different temporary panic again. Punishment and control of other people will be the solution to that severe catastrophic nightmare as well.
  18. Whew is right! And it's settled science since it comes from someone at a prestigious university. We have to trust our scientists and professors. The only question now is how do I find out if I'm an insect alien hybrid, and therefore in charge of controlling, punishing and killing everyone else as I see fit, in order to save the planet. I'm pretty sure that I should be in command. I can feel it.
  19. Not quite true if you nclude the Objectivist Esthetics, which is anything but adherence to reason. J
  20. Why do YOU work to undermine it, Billy? Perhaps the Russians have motives similar to yours? J
  21. They seem to be feeling that it's within reach now. Their excitement levels have been noticeably increasing lately. They're becoming more open in expressing their true desires. We must create pain. J
  22. Scott has misidentified the problem. The actual problem is people wanting to control and punish other people. Gen 4 doesn't solve that problem, but removes some of the excuses and satisfaction. So, in order to make Gen 4 palatable, they'll have to find a way to make it include more control and punishment -- and more costs -- more than what they've been advocating and proposing in regard to old energies and technologies. How can Gen 4 be used to reverse the concept of merit? Until there is a good answer to that question, it will face strong opposition.
