Landrew is back

Postby landrew » Tue Jun 12, 2018 3:39 pm

Hi
I am back to the forum again, this time under a different understanding, if I may.
Beyond my tag-line, I no longer wish to discuss my personal definitions of what I think Skepticism is all about. It was a serious bone of contention last time, and I don't wish to revisit the situation under which I left, last time. I'd be happy to discuss anything in private, but I will restrict my public participation to topical issues.

Thanks
Landrew

Walking around in a soiled diaper for a couple days usually does the trick.

What if you don't want to be constipated? My recent blocked bowel has me a bit biased against such.

landrew: checking your history, I see you posted on "broken nutrient cycle" and UBI. Two excellent subjects I hope you post on. Didn't see any scuffle re skepticism.....must have been a delayed reaction???

I've always enjoyed the topical discussions in this forum. I love discussing things which I both know about, and which I don't know about. I knew it had all gone wrong when I could no longer maintain a respectable presence here because of disagreements over the definitions of skepticism; and it seemed pointless to continue. I don't wish to go down that ugly road again, so I will recuse myself from such discussions in the future.

landrew: it doesn't take much skill to simply adopt one definition and make your analysis from there. Then, pick some other definition and repeat the analysis. then: compare and contrast what the two different definitions give you. I'm sure there are pros and cons to both approaches.

Never a reason to get too close to the fire.

Well. That was a bit premature.
