Is there zero connection between String Theory and the paranormal?

?

Does String Theory help to explain... but not necessarily debunk some aspects of the paranormal?

    Nope. There were plenty of closer places they could escape to.

    Only crackpots redefine terms to suit their own purposes. This lands somewhere between begging the question and no true Scotsman.

    See, this is a pattern. What do you hope to accomplish there? How is that challenging or rewarding for you? Haven't you basically said the same things to the same people over and over? Is it just naive optimism?

    I know you hate having this pointed out, but I'm seriously curious. I can't fathom that being fun or worth the time.
    I guess it makes sense according to the adage that you are the average of the 10 people you spend time with, whether it's here or IRL.

    In my defence you might be kind of surprised what my long term purposes for my participation on Sciforums might be, (hint... the "Politics" subforum has a discussion entitled "Would an intelligently created UBI be dangerous for the environment"..... that will give you an idea of what I am hoping may emerge over the next ten years from Sciforums.

    That's not a defense. That's boring, trolling bullshit. If you keep showing up on my notifications, you'll just end up on ignore, with all the other trolls and and mental defectives.

    You do tend to make a sincere effort to be truthful don't you?

    Vociferous:

    Remember when I told you, a few weeks ago, that I'd leave my motivations a mystery for you to ponder?

    I guess you've spent quite a lot of the intervening time pondering.

    Why are you so fixated on me? Why do you keep demanding that I pay attention to you? Is it important to you that I pay attention to you?
    I haven't been around this forum for about 3 or 4 weeks now. I'm sure you've noticed. But you're still stuck exactly where you were the last time you and I spoke.

    Why do you feel the need to bemoan your lack of free time to me? Deal with your own life issues. You know next to nothing about my mine.
    Well, bully for you! It's good that you're learning time management, I guess, what with your busy schedule and all.
    When did I ask you to care? You keep bugging me, not the other way around. Why do you want to be in my face all the time? Stop being so needy.
    Look, this is ridiculous. You've had three or four weeks to process my previous reply to you. Go back and review where you started this, and how I commented on that. The first complaint, you will recall, was yours.
    You seem awfully concerned about how I interact and with whom I choose to interact. In particular, you keep demanding that I pay attention to you. Try to find some other interests.
    Waving your penis again. Why do you feel the need to do that? Why is it so important to you to think yourself smarter than I am? And why do you have to keep asserting that it to other people?

    You're kidding, right? It's been almost a month (perhaps you failed to notice that), and I have long since forgotten about this post. So much so that I was surprised that your reply in this thread was even to me at all. I thought that, certainly, your engagement with Dennis was far more pressing for you and you had simply ignored me, as this post of yours seems to both indicate your desire to do and contradict with it's attention. And to be honest, I'm fairly certain I've already pegged why you prefer engaging with such people. Just thought I'd give you a change to correct my assumptions, and you have quite explicitly refused to. So my assumptions stand. I'm good with that. I didn't bemoan anything, although it's interesting that's how you chose to read it. And I didn't mean to hurt your feelings. To the contrary, I started this line of discussion by paying you a genuine compliment, but you didn't seem interested in that. That's okay too. Um, you do know that you're capable of just ignoring me, right? At least, I don't think I have any kind of leverage that could possibly coerce your attention. So please, if my posts bother you so much, by all means, ignore them. It won't hurt my feelings in the least.
    Your complaint "about what I haven't read, including whining about things I addressed in direct response to you, but you missed" was in another thread. If you really want me to, I can show you exactly where, but I doubt you do. Again, you seem to be the one intent on telling me how I should act. I was only asking you why, not telling you to stop. I'm not sure how replying to you a handful of times on the same subject is demanding anything. Do you feel like replies to you take on the character of a command or compulsion? Where did I say I was smarter than you? Just because I can't see how something may be a worthwhile challenge doesn't mean that it isn't. But I didn't mean to bring up any insecurities. Sorry, James.

    Yet of all the replies I'm sure you've amassed in a month, you only deigned to reply to mine. Seems that fixation is projection.

    *sigh*

    See my response in the other thread in which, apparently, we have to have a parallel discussion on the same topic.
    Wrong again.
