And how has the person in question announced or tried to gain favour or support in the science sub-forums? You do realise that the Fringe sub-section of this website is not scientific, yes? Of course I don't. But there is a difference between questioning and posting as though you are being personally insulted that such posts exists. I don't see delving into Fringe to correct errors as a problem. If the person does not wish to change their minds or change their personal beliefs, is it worth getting abusive and personal? You can't provide examples of how science has benefited mankind in response? After all, that should be a fairly easy one to deal with, shouldn't it? I mean, oh no, someone insulted science! Does that mean we should all grab our pitchforks and torches and gather at the gate to burn them at the stake? Those certain parties are posting their threads in non-science forums. If you do not want your senses to be offended, don't read those sub-forums. There are many here who only post in the sub-forums that directly interest them. There are some posters here who post solely in the science subsections and never bother scrolling down to any other sub-forums because they have no interest in it. Why can't you do the same? For example, I have no interest in what is posted in the Eastern Philosophy, so I rarely visit that sub-forum except on a few occasions to remove spammers or review a complaint. I'm not going to go in there and correct what they are writing because I find it personally offensive that someone is being unscientific. Of course I have. Doesn't mean I am going to go all up in arms because he's not changing his mind. If he or anyone else wants to exist in a life of make believe, so what? It doesn't affect me at all. It is contained in the appropriate sub-forum and when I don't want to read it, I don't read it. Sure, I'll point out when he or anyone else is misrepresenting articles, or posting contradictory things in the hope that he corrects it and I will challenge that and often do, sometimes even viciously. And I have pushed to close the gaps in the rules that deal with that issue. But that doesn't mean that I expect him to believe any differently. I don't expect him to change what he posts or what he believes in. I would just like that he posts it differently in that he puts in his input instead of just quoting everything and references what he posts. Certainly, I would much prefer it if people were more objective and able to apply their beliefs objectively, but I see belief in such things in the same way as I see people who have religious beliefs and pray to their deity of choice. People believe in that stuff in the same way that people believe in God. I'll put it this way, have you ever challenged your wife to prove that God exists and to do so in a scientific manner? Or demanded that she look at all scientific evidence that counters the bible and demanded she acknowledges it and changes what she believes? I suspect you'll find that the dinner you are making for her would end up on your head if you did.Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
