Apparently Jeremy thinks that RSP stands for Reasoning, Science, and Philosophy.

His aggressive RSPing has been quite puzzling to me. Here, the content isn't even RSPd: It's in a bunch of geeklists that haven't been locked!

Yeah, this looked way too hasty. Arguably, NO mere "subscription thread" should be consigned to RSP assuming it remains a subscription thread with notifications.

Hmmm, I moved it because the underlying geeklists are not about gaming. So the choices were RSP or chitchat. We've had lots of Science talk in RSP so I thought that it would fit better here than in chitchat. If the OP would prefer chitchat, I'll move it there instead however.

Naw, leave it here. It might drag in some fresh meat.

No thread that includes a movie poster from C.H.U.D. is exempt from the notification that my mother babysat the film's writer, "baby Parnie" (as he was then known.)

Why do you people continually sell "Beatnik Coffee Haus" so short?

That's fine, I don't really care where it is as long as people can find it. I didn't really know where to put it in any case. I wouldn't have thought to put in RSP (though maybe some people would identify science with these...), but I'm overall okay with it.

These lists seem to be devoted to giving intellectual justifications to the rejection of science. They're clearly distruptive. They should be stopped. arrrh

The latest is poking big holes in the falsification story about science. We'll all end up supporting Feyerabend at this rate and he thought you didn't have a mind. And notjust you specifically either. So that can't be right.

Don't worry. I subscribed to these threads but have not taken part because as a working physicist, I conclude in reading the threads that the person has no clue how science really works.

You are basing this on his review and description of the history of the philosophy of science?! All he is doing is providing synopses of prominent philosophers' historical perspectives on science, which says nothing about his own perspective or understanding of science, which for his purposes isn't even relevant... just sayin'

I'm not sure if you're joking or not (the pirate could be a giveaway...). If not, I don't think it would be reasonable to think that I'm saying anything that's anti-science - just giving some views of science and the problems they face (albeit, the falsification story is still pretty popular among many scientists). Feyerabend will meet the same treatment as everyone else.

Re: responsibility
The pirate, I hoped, would make it clear that I was trying to be funny.
I failed at that.

I do appreciate your lists very much.
