A Lesson in Probability to a Twit

Reading Time: 8 minutes A long time commenter here (See Noevo Twit), who has contributed precisely nothing to any conversation he has been involved in bar annoyance, is not long for these boards. It finally came to a head and I announced he would be banned after the election given: a) if Trump won, he would be incorrigibly smug; […]

Mask Mayhem

Reading Time: 4 minutes Masks. Should we wear them? Is the science robust in their efficacy? Recently, I took it upon myself to thoroughly critique (elsewhere) a video that was doing the rounds: Some of you will love this video because it will support your conclusions with lots of data and a calm voice seemingly of reason. But […]

Scientific Consensus and the Argumentum ad Populum

Reading Time: 2 minutes As if to fulfil his identity as poster boy for naive Creationist by making all the logical faux pas you can poke a hairy stick at, See Noevo pulls out all the classics.

Quote of the Day: Illithid on Consequentialism

Reading Time: 3 minutes Sometimes things surprise me. Today, it was that, after all these months and perhaps years of See Noevo commenting here, he doesn’t seem to have a working knowledge of one of the most common moral subjects on this blog. Consequentialism is a staple diet for conversation here, and yet his understanding has apparently been lacking. Thanks to […]

Answering Questions about Empiricism as Foundational: Abiogenesis, Language and Incredulity

Reading Time: 6 minutes Goodness me. Here’s another comment from See that he demands is answered, dripping as it is with condescension, and full of naivety. This came in the middle of his points being soundly debunked. As ever, I write this not so much for him, but for all the other readers. Some of See’s comments are regular […]
