So let's get this really started. First, a video of an Australian Parliamentarian refusing to answer questions: (an aside, I love the looks on Dawkins' face)"Each person will come to their own…Continue

If your memories change every time you recall them, what actually happened?

Hah.

 

Is it bad that I had to check and make sure it was intended as satire?

My brother and sister-in-law are breeding bigfeet right here in Montreal.   And Shaq is just a shaved Bigfoot.

William Taylor - some, though I'll admit my greek philosophy is a bit rusty. There is also a philosopher's group, for more rigorous discussions along those lines. (edit - which I see you've found).

Hmm. I joined the group here thinking it might have something to do with philosophical skepticism, but I don’t really see much of that here. Anyone have any interests in that direction?

Does that count as thin skinned?

No, he's still on. He may have left this group, or at least deleted some comments.

Did Curt leave AoM?
Comment by Liam Strain on May 27, 2011 at 10:00pm

Well that was disappointing.

Curt - my intent has not been to chase you off. I would be curious to see some evidences and it might be well worth, and generate interesting conversation as an actual discussion topic where we can better dive into details. This comment medium does not do serious discussion justice. 

 

Just my $.02, and hand extended.

Curt, Kenneth started the group.  You're not just talking to those of us who talk back, but to anybody who follows the discussion.  You seem pretty thin skinned and defensive for a self professed thick-skinned guy.  Oh well, I'm off to enjoy a fine port, a cigar, and a hooker.  Just kidding about the cigar.
