  So pretty much the only two groups you use that term are academic philosophers and creationists?     That's definitely true for an individual.  Replication and peer review do a decent job of compensating for it within the scientific community.  You only get N-rays occasionally.   It's not perfect, but AFIK it's the best we've got
  Sense.  It makes none.     Well I'd say it's a patently absurd thing to assert.   I don't care about blaming anyone.  It's not about Darwin.  It's about the fact that this sort of language portrays scientific discoveries as some sort of cult of personality.  Science is a systematic and empirical attempt to describe reality.  It's not some kind of call to action or pronouncement about how the world should be.  Science is about verifiable facts that exists independently...
  I guess most ideas must really be the same then since they'd probably converge quite a bit if we could trace all inspiration back to the beginning of conscience thought...     This.  x1000
  That's actually Spencerism.  It's not a very good description of natural selection either.
  Err...what?  I never mentioned socialism.  There can be non-socialist/communist/lenninist/marxist/whatever command economies too.  There is a continuum between market and command but when a paticular example swings heavily one way or another I think such a label can be fairly applied.       Would someone please tell me what the hell "Darwinism" is.  I know Dawkins like to use it a lot but I think it's pretty damn stupid since just about nobody on his 'side' uses it to...
  I never really got into Neverwinter for some reason but I don't really remember why.  I snagged it form GOG during a recent sale so hopefully I'll get around to playing it eventually.  I've got to get around to playing Planescape: Torment first even if it's not BioWare.   Have you played and/or read anything in the Planescape setting?  With all its focus on the competing 'philosophers with clubs' factions I kinda get the feeling that you'd love or hate it with no in...
Busy with work lately...   Wow.  That seems strangely dirty...     6SN7 and EL34 hmm...   Still thinking about building my own stat amp.     I'll have to be careful with my plug around that thing...   /obligatoryoffcolorjoke     Sounds interesting.  Is there something like a "Hegel For Dummies" you could recommend?     Ever tried Baldur's Gate?  I ask since that was from a time before Neverwinter
  I know the basics but it still bothers me for some reason.  That guy's are all GSM though.  I need CDMA.  There might be something in there but U've got to find a model to search for in the first place.  Maybe I'll try the manufacturer's international/other-countries-that speak-English sites and see if I find anything I like.     Is that a different link or did it get deleted?   Also, Rule 34 for the lulz...     I at least need it store numbers.     I transpose too...
  Ebay kinda make me nervous for something like that but I suppose it's worth a shot.  Do you know any good sellers?
  I'd like to.  The only problem is that it's a work phone.  I pretty much had to port my personal number to the work phone to save money.    When/if we hire someone new I'll see if I can convince my boss to give my S3 to to the new person and get me a one of those hotspots and a normal phone.  I should have asked for that in the first place but I didn't think it would be this annoying.  OTOH as far as I can tell no one makes good, normal phones anymore.  Or at least...
