    Why should we be okay with psuedoscience? It’s the same mentality that promotes anti-vaxx rhetoric and belief. To allow one form of psuedoscience because it’s “not a big deal” (says whom? and why?) is not okay. It just helps promote yet more anti-intellectualism and lazy thinking.

    Accurate science is necessary, not optional.

    Care to cite your sources, rather than relay third hand knowledge? Thanks.

    He essentially believes that teenage girls have evolved to sexually service grown men, dude.

    “and social theory ”

    And now his social theory work has been tainted. He is no longer credible. Because he is a pedophile apologist and defender. He doesn’t know shit about social theory, obviously.

    • It’s a fair point, but I’ll note that “social theory” in the evolutionary sense and “social theory” in the sense of human societies are very different things. The evolution of social systems can occur by mechanisms that we would judge morally repugnant by human standards (deception, exploitation, theft, killing, etc.). The “values” of evolution…[Read more]

    “These are tactics used by anti-GMO, anti-vax, and other promoters of pseudoscience, not a rational freethinker’s blog.”

    Oh for fuck’s sake, it’s not the same thing at all. You’re grasping at straws all because you want to defend a pedophile and the pedophile’s defenders. WHY?

    What is “mob justice”? Define your terms.

    Also “It disgusts me almost as much as rape. ”

    Your priorities are FUCKED UP.

    He is an ******ADMITTED PEDOPHILE******

    Jesus. Even when we know for *sure* that someone is a terrible human being who has done terrible things to other people, we have to handle them with kid gloves.

    Yeah, rape…[Read more]

    3. I don’t think either of you have a strong hold on what free speech is, to be perfectly honest. That’s not really the point here, anyway.

    “Formalized research” — that’s what Joshua Smith called his “challenge”. LOL

    but-but-but! he observed some anecdotal evidence! no confirmation bias here, no sir.

    Here is a really good outline of why so many women are excited about this. In a way that men have been able to get excited about stuff since, well, the dawn of movies, but we haven’t:

    • Thanks for the link. It’s nice to have something I just really don’t get explained to me by someone with the same tastes in ’80s movies I do. So, I understand why some people are pretty excited about this movie, I’m just not a big fan of remakes. I was skeptical about the Batman reboot (I thought Shumacher pretty much destroyed the franchise, so…[Read more]

    My claim is that I observed empirically significant evidence (p < .01)

    Second person asking: how was this measured?

  • marilove posted a new activity comment 3 years, 9 months ago

    Can you explain why this isn’t a good thing and why it doesn’t need to happen? People say this all the time but no one ever says why. I don’t get it, honestly. I don’t care if a movie is a reboot, as long as it’s done well.

  • marilove posted a new activity comment 3 years, 9 months ago

    I’m not sure how that’s any different from any other movie that’s ever been made, though.

    I’m not sure why some people are like WHAT A REBOOT?! NOOOO!

    There is a reason reboots happen: Because they are successful.

    And why shouldn’t there be an all-female cast of a really popular sci-fi comedy? How is that not a good thing? I don’t see the…[Read more]

    Lots of words have more than on meaning. Like this particular meaning that no one actually uses for this word. I’ve never heard it. Looks like I’m not the only one. IT’s fine.

    9 years! That’s a huge accomplishment, especially considering the podcast format is still considered to be so new. Good luck on your new adventures, Rebecca!

    I hope they get another woman to fill your spot.

    But Paul! Reading the article is so haaaaaarrrrrddddd.

  • marilove posted a new activity comment 3 years, 11 months ago

    I understand the punch. I don’t know if I agree that the guy “deserved” it — a single punch can actually hurt someone pretty badly, even kill, — but I also understand why Aldrin punched the guy. People aren’t perfect, and we all have our limits.

  • marilove posted a new activity comment 3 years, 11 months ago

    Oh so yet another person who didn’t RTFA, eh?

    I mean last I checked, harassment and threats were, oh, you know, CRIMES.

    I suggest going back and re-reading the article. Slowly.

  • marilove posted a new activity comment 3 years, 11 months ago

    Nah, he’s just repeating what Rebecca already stated.

  • marilove posted a new activity comment 3 years, 11 months ago

    “I’m just saying – the concept of ‘doxxing’, while it can be used for good, can also be used for malicious purposes”

    You’re “just saying”? Why? I thought Rebecca already stated all this in her article, except less wordy and better written?

    Why did you feel the need to explain what she’s already written pretty clearly?
