Had some great debates with him over the years. Was a dog to a bone.

Would be even easier with the club going as it is now. ;D

The European Scientific Journal didn't say it wasn't a controlled demolition either. They are simply denying they published anything.

It taught me a lesson, which I half knew at the time but fully know now, there is no point arguing with conspiracy theorists. You can have chapter and verse of facts and logic systematically exposing the theory as false, makes no difference. Its why I mostly stay off the climate change thread.

Ha ha. You'd think I'd have figured it out wouldn't you?

I learnt a lot. 1) Conspiracy theorists are nutters. 2) Even someone like Disco08 who lived off stats could be sucked in by troofers.

I think most people are nutters in different ways and to different extents. Conspiracy theorists are just a particular type.

It's amazing what you find out about people. I was listening to Jon Faine (ordinarily sober and thoughtful - for a morning radio presenter) interview James Rhandi. Everything was going to plan until Rhandi innocently lumped acupuncture in with all the other "woo" that Jon was whole-heartedly agreeing was "woo". The annecdotes began to fly. It was very amusing, Rhandi chose not to bite and just let it go without much fuss but it taught me that most people have something, some area they just can't let go of.

About halfway through the thread I told him that conspiracy nutters are first criticised by others, but in the end they often choose to ostracise themselves.

Sadly proved true in his case.

That is exactly what I'm saying JayBee. He sounded as though he thought Rhandi had just made a mistake by referring to acupuncture because obviously acupuncture works. It was funny to listen to but ultimately a little disappointing. People can be completely reasonable but have blindspots. Things that don't come up normally and you just stumble into a conversation with someone you've known for years and BLAM! massive blindspot. Just mention Chiropracters and it sets the cat amongst the pigeons. In fact I think a seperate thread was started to try catch all the stuff was spinning out of this one.

Applied kinesiology & Osteopathy are my two favorite quack alternative medicines. I'm always shocked when someone I know well say they believe in them.

Cool thanks. IT is always a fun discussion telling a qualified GP (or better) that they are on equal qualification footing with chiropractors

Another good one is telling qualified architects that they are on equal footing with draftspersons and that they essentially do the same job.

Architects are allowed to use colour right, whereas a draftsman can only use black.
