Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth.

Don't Live each day like it's your last. Live each day like you have 541 days after that one where every choice you make will have lasting implications to you and the world around you. ~ Tim Minchin

Mama, ooo-oo-ooo

Sometimes wish I'd never been born at all

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Hey... one line at a time there buddy! There is an etiquette to spamming after all!

Also facepalming at the Bertrand Russell thought experiment being brought up so far out of context.

*sigh* Yeah, I don't think he grasps that Russell didn't "propose" the Five Minute Hypothesis, but was using it ironically to demonstrate the silliness we can reach if we start making up ideas that don't comport with visible reality, and fail to take the premise as a given that what we see is really what it appears to be.

I just watched, last night, a video debate between Matt Dillahunty and some presuppositionalist who kept hammering Matt with a one-time admission he made that yes, we might all just be brains in a vat. I mean, literally, the guy brought it up like fifteen times, as if it proved Matt (and atheism) was ridiculous, and no matter how many times Dillahunty tried to show him that it is only something we (including all philosophers) admit might be true before proceeding on to the "but we're going to have to operate as if this reality is reality" part, he just kept hammering away at it.

Dense.

I suspect we're dealing with the same sort of brain, here. Sadly, this one's not in a vat. Undecided

Oh the Sye Ten Bruggencate debate! Now I know who theBorg reminds me of...basically, if I recall the debate right, aside from the solipsism and 'brain in the vat' thing, he was also saying he refused to Bible study with atheists because they couldn't understand Scripture properly, only a Christian could. Similar to Borg saying only Orthodox Christianity understands the truth of Scripture...and has yet to define which of the Orthodox churches that is.

Need to think of a witty signature.
