Nope. In fact, the one thing I learned over the years roaming the highways and biways of the internet is that one must develop a very thick skin in order to handle all of the aholes out there with too much time on their hands. LOL
Let's just say I never expected sophomoric aholes over here in this particular type of setting. I thought atheists were supposed to have a higher IQ than the masses. Oh well, that just proves if you don't put your hypothesis through the flowchart described in the video, you'll come up with all sorts of fallacious conclusions. LOL

I can only assume you didn't read all of my comments...

RE: My bible is the only science book I need...
I want to thank all of you for confirming something for me. My initial vibes about this site was that there were a lot of self important aholes who followed their own egos rather than simply accepting people along with their ideas. All i seem to have gotten over here, except for a very few folks, is nothing more than tutorials on how I ought to try to make better videos. Guess what? I'm not a freaking professional okay? This latest video took me about 5 or 6 practice runs before I got it to my satisfaction. And the responses? Oh, you all knew everything already, plus some assholic remarks.

Well guess what? I'm freaking out of here! Now you can simply stroke each other and bore each other perhaps as much as you've bored me...

RE: My bible is the only science book I need...
Interesting content with a decent message about what the word "theory" means in science, but the video could use some polishing:

1. Video starts right in the middle of an explanation of the flowchart - needs a better introduction to set the stage.

2. The talking head chap is in front of a couple of windows - in Seth's production podcast, he mentions that this is a bad idea because of how the light blows out the video by creating a white glow. Would be better with, say, a dark background and some good lighting.

3. A couple of the charts don't translate well to YouTube/computer video because they are too detailed and are thus unreadable, even when enlarged to full screen.

4. Probably shouldn't be so insulting to the Xians, as this might turn off the fence-sitters who otherwise would find the subject matter compelling.

5. This is mezzo-mezzo, but perhaps a collared shirt would be better for credibility's sake than an olive drab T-Shirt with "Hell's Kitchen" printed on it, especially when talking about science.

How about if you just go fuck yourself okay? That works for me especially when you cite numero 4 where I shouldn't insult the cultists. Why? Think their blinded minds will be changed? If so, you're as deluded as they are. And the collared shirt thing is a classic - think I'll be doing another video about assholes like you and the others who seem more interested in impressing the crowd than listening to what was said.

You said posted before about having a think skin?

It must be very brittle.

I hear-by dub thee Chitin Man!

May your Skin Armour remain forever brittle, Chitin Man, and my the Gods of victory and poor biological armoured skin be with you!

Re: My bible is the only science book I need...
It doesn't matter what someone has to say, if they can't communicate it in an effective way then no one is going to give a shit.

Likewise, even if someone has nothing but shit to say but can spin it so that it sounds good (polishing a turd), then people will listen. Like I don't know... William Lane Craig?
