No true scientist?
You've got that backward.
That's not what those words mean!
You sound like the guy who wrote FizzBuzz Enterprise Edition
Really, learning to code real things well takes a gift and at the very least several years of experience.
Go ahead and say whatever you need to believe to maintain your ego. You're only deluding yourself.
Here in reality, it's nothing special.
Well, it doesn't appear to have improved...
Randi's trick for disproving psychic phenomena is blind and double-blind testing.
Randi's trick is convincing you that that's what he does.
How he gets away with his nonsense when all his followers are (admittedly, self-described) skeptics is beyond me.
Yahweh, of course.
"Lol, watch this! I'm gonna put this bitchin' fruit out there, and then tell those jerks who don't even know right from wrong to not eat it. When they do, I'll totally fuck over their entire race from now until the end of time and blame them for it!"

This was my point in the other discussion
Odd, as you make entirely different points in the other discussion. Perhaps you should review your old posts to see why you were (rightly) thrashed.
The part about psychology supports what I was saying completely.
I strongly disagree. You may want to clarify your position, as the article and your posts from the older thread appear to stand in contradiction.
Oh I see, Dawkins, a great evolutionary biologist, is a philistine. The evidence?
Evidence? How about any one of of his recent books written for a popular audience? That should be more than sufficient.
Science is not any single geometry, and so has no fundamental set of definitional axioms.
Are you sure about that? Hume would disagree with you
those don't exhaust the space of possible science
If you think that the scope of science is unbounded, you're very much alone. The limits and scope of science have been well understood for centuries.
The scope of science is unlimited, and it is the only way of creating knowledge.
Science isn't the end of epistemology. The scope and limits of science are well known. Congratulations, you've not only failed basic science, you've turned it in to a religion.
Because science is Bayesian
Oh, you're one of those. Never mind, you're beyond help.
Science is the means by which we know what is true
Total fail. Science doesn't deal in truth. It wouldn't work if it did!
