Getting tired of Trumpets and Flat Earthers

Postby Coveny » Fri Sep 08, 2017 6:58 pm

So here recently I've had a string of debates on Facebook with trump supporters and flat earthers and I decided to take a break from the theist insanity and have some intelligent conversations. I'm new so the thing to do is introduce myself. Jobs done. :)

I watch a fair amount TV, but don't read like I use to. I work in IT as a consulting doing Exchange/O365 and Networking. I enjoy science and some of my favorite topics are batteries and alternate energy sources, but I find stuff like wasp venom and nano delivery systems that curing cancer fascinating as well. This include hydro and geothermal which don't seem to get the love they deserves IMO. I also enjoy gaming but I'm holding off on that right now. Still playing a card game called War of Omens, but work on my retirement plan of an 8 unit apartment complex took up all my free time for the last month or so and I stopped playing Black Desert Online. (that game is a huge time sink...) I've played World of Tanks/Warships. Love the Total War series. Played some league of legends but quit when I started playing BDO. (might be going back ARAM and no ranked in the near future) On a humorous note I named my two havanese Teemo and Galio. Was going to debate.org but it's just so buggy now, so I started going to debate island but they've set flat earthers as moderators for the earth science and they just delete my posts when I disagree with them. As I've finally recovered from the housing bubble bursting in 2006 I decided to hire some developers to create ForDebating for me, but the delays are worse than the contractor problems I'm having with my apartment complex. I've almost come to the conclusion no one does what they say they are going to do/their job anymore. It's frustrating, so I figured I'd try some atheist forums and see if that leads to a better quality of discussion.

So hit me up if any of that sounds interesting, and I look forward to getting to know ya. :D

:wave: Hiya, how ya doin'.

We don't really do debates. Mostly we just argue incessantly. But we don't have many flat-earthers or ardent Trump supporters, either. I think most of us posting on these forums are ardent globe-earthers and ardent anti-Trump unsupporters. ;)

Oh, and one-liners. Some of us ( :wave: ) post a lot of one-liners. Look at my post count! There's no way I could get it that high if I had to type a lot of words in each post to do it.

That's what I strongly suspect accounts for its occasional and prolonged absence: escalators. :-P

It escalated years ago. What you witnessed in this thread is a mere continuation of a long :slapfight:

If true, they're doing a piss poor job lately. I demo and review games constantly, and 99% of them are crap for people without functioning neural connections who proclaim themselves "experts," but are lost without a strategy guide and hint button.

So go have an OBE and tell the damn aliens to read up on game theory, learn to animate properly, design a user interface that isn't garbage, write storylines for adults, and stop putting {!#%@} like jigsaw puzzles and Simon Says into games marketed to adult gamers.

Also, Trump wasn't involved; he couldn't win Tic Tac Toe if you gave him a three-move handicap. :roll:
What are the facts? Again and again and again-what are the facts? Shun wishful thinking, ignore divine revelation, forget what “the stars foretell,” avoid opinion, care not what the neighbors think, never mind the unguessable “verdict of history”--what are the facts, and to how many decimal places? You pilot always into an unknown future; facts are your single clue. Get the facts!

Whoa, that's new! Do you really mean that or are you just kidding? It's impossible for me to tell the difference.
