    ‘Elfin is wrong’ indeed. Elfin is wrong?? I BEG your pudden? What perversion of thought could possibly produce such a preposteration???

    I’ve been waiting ages for a good opportunity to use this one: elf – do you have 3rd party insurance for cycling?

    Don’t need it. If I’m in an accident, it’s clearly the other person’s fault. 😐

    You expect a summary of a 1200+ post thread? 😯

    Well I suppose it’s something like this:
    atheists are angry because of bad things that happen in the name of religion
    religious types claim that those things are actually nothing to do with religion
    atheists say religion is bad
    religious types say atheism is bad
    religious types suggest that atheists are angry because they’re doomed
    atheists and religious types argue about whether or not there’s a god
    thread gets sidetracked into debate about the meaning of “peer-reviewed” 😉
    stuff which got discussed 1000 posts ago gets repeated
    nobody bothers listening to the video in the OP

    I’ve probably missed out quite a bit in the middle there – gave up reading it for quite a while whilst they thrashed out whether or not god exists.

    But that atheist, claiming to speak for atheists said that they were angry, so in the same way that christians or muslims or whatever are held responsible for the actions of others who identify themselves as such, you will need to account for her actions.

    I account for her actions by telling you to listen to the video in the OP – she’s quite capable of accounting for herself. You can’t give your interpretation of atheists being angry, then when it’s pointed out that atheists aren’t angry in that way suggest that of course they are because she admitted it. Not when what she says refutes your position.

    The Tower Hamlets assertionis particular problematic in these situations as clearly the fault lies with the non Elfin citzen. However this naturally means that the other person has by defi ition acted in way which was not very nice, the TH defence requires the victimto leave the scene, thus perhaps committing a crime himself, however as he is incapable of being wrong. Then either there was no accident or the TH dweller di not leave it, thus we end up in the Tower Hamlets paradox

    I think athieists, God types, us, anyone, whatever all looking for a solution. life ain’t that simple unfortunately, so get on with it with ducks. fat bastards. re: Elf. people are assholes. so? nothing new.

    Not really, because it makes your stance very clear. You are arguing for the sake of it and finding any trivial excuse not to engage with evidence. Any ‘proof’ i show you would only be further quetioned. I can’t ‘prove’ that the conference took place and wasn’t some elaborate hoax. So i’m not going there, but your line of reasoning is very simplistic

    I’m quite happy to accept basic stuff like that the conference happened. Less willing to take at face value things you consider “obvious” such as that it being presented at a conference proves that it was peer-reviewed, when my experience suggests otherwise, and the evidence you provided that papers presented at academic conferences have been peer-reviewed didn’t actually prove that (it didn’t even make that claim!) Just to come back to another point you ignored, the circular argument that academic conferences are defined as ones where the papers are peer-reviewed (even if that was universally true), therefore a paper at an academic conference must have been peer-reviewed, still leaves the issue of whether that conference was an “academic-conference” within that definition. Not when I have personal evidence of scientific conferences where that isn’t the case (don’t get the idea they were mickey mouse ones either – nice official sounding titles, and numerous people who were world-leaders in their field presenting and attending).

    I might be arguing for the sake of it (like most people on this thread, shirley?), but that doesn’t mean you’re right.

    I’d suggest the fact you didn’t bother to watch the video in the OP, yet have commented on it also tells a tale.

    No, but it does mean that you are not interested in the evidence. After all if you are arguing about the credibilty of the evidence just for the sake of the argument rather than actually being interested in wheter or not the evidence is credible then that kind of proves the point. I can’t easily prove to you, beyond all doubt that the paper was peer-reviewed. But I think even you know that the work has been peer-reviewed, given the circumstances of it. The best i can do is to say that I presented at the same conference and my work along with everyone else giving proper presentations had their work peer-reviewed, but i know, you only have my word for it. So, if you are interested inthe evidence, then watch the video, if you are interested in arguing or winning and losing, then i suggest you chose a different partner.

    Well, you didn’t watch the utts video or read the paper, yet you were happy to have an extended argument about it. I’d also suggest the fact that you think that i commented about the content of the video in the OP, when in fact I didn’t, tells a more important tale.

    Clearly you relish the battle of wits which is an argument,, it is a shame you came half prepared.

    I am open-minded about it. I used to think it was rubbish, but having considered the evidence, I think there is some evidence for its existence. I’m no longer sure.

    Nothing new…

    Well you could have just said that before, rather than relying on the argument that it was an academic conference and all academic conferences are peer-reviewed – anybody might think you were just after an argument. I’m not totally disbelieving of anything anybody writes on here – first hand evidence isn’t too bad. Of course that just leaves the issue that it wasn’t actually the paper in question being presented.

    Why is that an issue! The conf. Paper stands alone. As does the journal paper.

    Cogito Ergo Sum. Cogito Ergo Deus Est.

    Well, I find it an interesting philosophical concept, even if you don’t.

    Good effort to raise the quality of the debate. I rather liked Descartes’ argument about the evil demon – goes to show that The Matrix was not such a new idea after all.

    I can cope with the Cogito Ergo Sum, but the second bit was also axiomatic for Descartes. It isn’t for me.

    Christianity: The belief that a Jewish zombie can make you live forever: providing that you symbolically eat his flesh, drink his blood and telepathically make him your master. All of this so that he can remove an evil force inside you that only exists because this woman (created from some dudes rib) was convinced by a talking snake to eat an apple from a magic tree.
