I suggest:

-Removing the Politics and Religion fields as they are A) Intensely inflexible and assume that you can boil down your political and religious beliefs to two or three words B) Not something most people take seriously.

-Set up seperate forum for religious issues

-Promoting immigration by other forumites

-Make Mega Jesus-San be funny

If your political values take more than three words to name, then as a rule they are absurdly complex and completely fucking ridiculous.


-Set up seperate forum for religious issues

Religious threads really aren't that unique from cultural threads, given that, holy shit, they're the exact same thing.

Militant agnostic:
"I relation to questions concerning divinity, god, or the nature of the universe I say: I don't know, and neither do any of you knuckleheads!"

I do consider myself a secular humanist in my political approaches, but "quasi-revolutionary" I just threw in there for shits and giggles. Did you miss my post about the "comical value" of these fields?

Quoted for Truth.

Not that it would be necessary or anything, but we could encourage even bigger penis matches on the boards by having a sociocide analog to the BJJ Blue Belt / LEO / Military / etc. tags.

Maybe something like Phd. Philosopher or Phd. Physicist, so when you are getting your ass beat down about a subject you know nothing about, you can take extra special pride in the fact that someone with that much education is wasting their time to verbally smack you around.

Worst idea ever. If you have a Phd in history/biology/buttsecks, this fact should be evident by the gigantic ownage you hand out to your opponents in debates, not by a sign in your sig line. Otherwise, it could quickly turn into the "I HAVE DEGREE, YOU DO NOT, BOW DOWN TO ME!" game.

Why do we have BJJ Blue Belt/Purple Belt tags again? I guess to me, if I see someone spouting offf about Physics I am much less likely to challenge them if they actually have a degree in physics. Then again I've known idiots who argued with mathematicians about math, so what the hell do I know.

That's true... you don't offer much fun when it comes to religious debates because though we may be dyed-in-the-wool atheists, you aren't a dyed-in-the-wool nutcase so there's little fun to be had there. Thank god for the nazis...

Oh, I do think there are defenses of Religion, and I am rather fond of Catholicism if not most mainstream Protestant churches. However, I do not think it is fair to argue that their is any scientific evidence to support a belief in God. You either feel God in the abyss of the soul or you don't.

I also think it is a hoot to argue about the brutality of the old testament. Catholics tend to tell you that they are just stories reflecting the culture of a different time, and are not to be taken literally. Crazy fundies however...

I've tried to meet hot psycho goth chicks by inserting myself into activities that goth chicks are known to engage in. I only ever met one, and I totally did her. But the rest were fat, ugly, and thought that dressing slutty would magically make them hot. They were wrong. Very, very wrong.

These days, I'm more into geek chicks who dress like normal human beings. It's usually just as easy to get into their pants, they're not as psychotic, and random middle-aged black women don't ask me, "What's a nice-looking white boy like you doing with a girl who dresses like that?!"

I don't know if you're including me in this assessment, but I'm actually a dyed-in-the-wool evangelican Lutheran who became an atheist later. Despite my complete and utter rejection of all things theological and/or spiritual, my wool is still dyed a lovely shade of evangelical Lutheran.

That hardly requires a belief in the 'All mighty' to do that. I've done that very same thing many times in the past adopting the position of the religious right to expose the emotional intolerance of the left. It's a fairly simple thing to do, have a greater command over the topic and keeping it within historical context, you then easily win the debate over the usual suspects here. Emotionalism, ignorance and profanity will only carry you so far.

That was very subtley done Phrost, have you ever thought about a career in sales?

One day when I have a job I will, but being an unemployed student doesn't pay well. Though when my loan comes through I may cut back on the beer and do it that way.

On the list.

OK, thanks.

I was going nuts trying to figure them out [s][strike][cross][crosstext]...

Is there any way to use HTML tags? I thought about doing that, but I'm way to
<strike>lazy</strike> busy to do that.

EDIT: Guess not.

Yeah, I really fucked that up now.

These headings over the main listing... "Thread / Thread Starter - Last Post - Replies - Views - Forum" need one less tab or whatever. They don't line up properly..not that anyone pays attention, right?

I think that the Staging Ground is our version of Trollshido, at least for the moment.

CTC is the Trollshido of this site.

Staging Ground is for new threads made in earnest for the discussions here.

Some n00b brought up a valid point, can we have an option on the search function that allows it to search both Bullshido and Sociocide at the same time?

Why do we have BJJ Blue Belt/Purple Belt tags again? I guess to me, if I see someone spouting offf about Physics I am much less likely to challenge them if they actually have a degree in physics. Then again I've known idiots who argued with mathematicians about math, so what the hell do I know.

For history PHDs, you have to read 50-100 books or so to get a PHD. This does not mean you know everything about history. Fields are big. Argumentation is possible.

The only feature I want is a post history button so I can check replies on posts I've made.

It's the other skills that make the difference: precision in research, knowledge of the debates in methodology and method, skill in formulating evidence into an integrated whole. Of course, a few well-evidenced facts are helpful, but the process of educated synthesis is the key skill (which is often lacking in laypeople).

When people argue something about math or science with a Ph.D., it's usually something undergrad related. Like "do 1 = 0.9...?"

Or, they could try to argue stuff about very obscure and untested theories (like String Theory), even though they have no idea what it's really about.

But that's what the Neg Rep button is for.

By the way, I had a chat to a philosopher of logic and mathematics about this. His immediate answer was 'yes'. He explained it quite simply (much more compelling than the proofs, which we also discussed).

Just go to your control panel and type it again.

With regards to improving this site, how about modifying it so logging in to Bullshido automatically logs you in to Sociocide as well? I think a lot of people on Bullshido don't post here as much as the previous General BS section because they have to log in again (it takes a lot of energy!) even though all Bullshido members by default have a Sociocide account but just don't use it.

A test.



Edit: Excellent it works again. Still, why did we lose them in the first place?

Can we have a link to Bullshido in the link bar at the top, link we do to Sociocide on Bullshido. I'm lazy and don't want to go into my bookmarks to change back between the boards.

Naa. Would look ugly. Just use Firefox's ability to drag pages to the bookmarks toolbar.
