LOL < They call themselves out with this quote.

Quote
We support the true application of the Scientific Method, which involves the updating of one's hypothesis to the fit the data, rather than rejecting any and all data that doesn't fit into an "a priori" hypothesis, which the PseudoSkeptics do, which is totally unscientific and the antithesis of the Scientific Method.

I think that's the correct defintion of "the scientific method", but it doesn't fit my a priori beliefs, so I'll have to reject it.  ::)

Yes, it was started by one of the trolls here, Winston Wu (his profile is there at the bottom of the page). He started a thread on it, but he's either restricted to Explicit, or it was moved to Explicit, can't remember which. Anyway, the thread has been deleted per the rules of the Explicit Forum.

ugh. Even thinking about reading this stuff is depressing to me. The idea of having to waste my time reading hours and hours of this crap is painful.

Unfortunately no, it was created by this guy because he was pissed off that we don't take his bullshit seriously.

I love how they start with this quote:

Quote
"All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident." - Arthur Schopenhauer, German philosopher

Their understanding of this quote: Anything which is ridiculed must be true!
"I distrust those people who know so well what god wants them to do, because I notice it always coincides with their own desires." - Susan B. Anthony
