JAPH. (That's right -- I'm not Really Inexperienced any more.)

I'm not just here, I'm here [perlmonks.org], and here [javajunkies.org] too, I ramble randomly in my philosophical blog [blogspot.com] and my other blog [blogspot.com]. Soon I'll come in a convenient six-pack.

Check it out! Creation Science Fair! :D It's good to know that "Women Were Designed For Homemaking" and "Dinosaur & Man Walked Together"! Finally, all this hoo-hah science put to rest by nice, simple, easy bullshit!

There are so many ways that a non-blind study can be unconsciously skewed by the researchers that no one is going to take s

      • Does this mean I have to let my wife wear shoes and come out of the kitchen?
      • I'm just saying, it seems awfully dishonest to lump everyone who disagrees with you into a monolithic group and then mock them based on the work of elementary school students. I watched a fourth grader write a report on vampires, once. I certainly don't believe that every supernaturalist believes some of the things he wrote.p>

        • If it seems like that's what I'm doing, I apologize -- it's not the case. The effect that these "teachings" had on the result is the humorous part, even though I don't find it entirely humorous.

          I'm expressing amusement that someone can "teach" children such things, produce documents ascribing their belief in such things, etc., and believe it. I have absurd beliefs, but I recognize that they are absurd, and most people with absurd beliefs do not. (And yes, I think all beliefs are absurd. They almost ha
