Although Dude has already debunked "the New Skepticism" in this thread, Latinijral has on several occations told us he will answer the question once someone opens a thread regarding it.

I hereby state the rule for this thread: No hijacking will be allowed.
I ask the moderators to enforce this rule, and the SFN- members to abide by it. I want this thread "clean".

Latinijral please answer these questions:

What is the 'new skepticism' and what qualifies you to be it's father?

In case you have problems understanding written Englsih, here is the question in a few other languages. Perhaps you understand one of them better.

What is the 'new skepticism' and what qualifies you to be it's father?

Cul es "el nuevo escepticismo", y qu le califica ser su padre?

Que so "o skepticism novo", e o que qualifica-o ser seu pai?

Quel est "le nouveau scepticisme", et ce qui vous qualifie tre son pre ?

Che cosa "il nuovo scetticismo" e che cosa li qualifica essere il relativo padre?

What kinda shiznit is da "new skepticism", and what qualifies yo ass to be its mutha and shit, you know what I'm sayin?

Was ist "die neue Skepsis", und was qualifiziert Sie, sein Vater zu sein?

O que "novo ceticismo", e o que o qualifica como pai?

Vad r "den nya skepticismen", och vad kvalificerar dig till att vara dess fader?

Wat is het "nieuwe skepticisme" en wat kwalificeert jouw als de vader ervan?

Mit on "uusi skeptisyys", ja mik ptevitt sinut sen isksi?

Deleted 'cause this box won't do Chinese.

But I am very interested in whatever answer might be forthcoming.

Okay, this thread will be strictly moderated, as of this moment. And I do mean strictly moderated, which may include - but is not limited to - editing of posts to remove off-topic paragraphs, sentences, phrases or even individual words. Wholesale deletion may occur, as well.

And you may, Mab, want to put latinijral's name in the title, as I believe that was one of his requirements, also.

[Edited to add that moderation notes will appear like this, and that moderation will continue until Dr. Mabuse says otherwise - Dave W.]

It will of course be on topic to repeat the questions, asking for clarifications, and adding translations.


Thanks for the reminder, Dave, to modify the subject to include latinijral's name.

Your failed version of skepticism aside, please answer the questions put forth to you.

What, exactly, is the "new skepticism" and what qualifies you to be its father?

Even if you disagree with Dr Mab's opening post and my assessment of your nonsense, this is a legitimate question.

[Off-topic comments deleted - Dave W.]

ANSWER THE QUESTION.


Ignorance is preferable to error; and he is less remote from the truth who believes nothing, than he who believes what is wrong.

I specifically asked for this thread to be tightly moderated so that you can present "the New Skepticism" without someone hijacking the thread.

[Off-topic comments deleted - Dave W.]

You were asked to explain what the New Skepticism is.

[Off-topic comments deleted - Dave W.]

We want to know that The New Skepticism is.

Latin, why don't you begin like this:
"With the 'new skepticism' I mean..."

That should help you on your way.
