Thank you for the information, ZeeKrey! If you are familiar with James Randi you will recognize the phrase "woo-woo". Folks here, including myself, are pretty sensitized to anything that appears woo-woo (or just woo, for short) Some of your posts did appear headed in that direction.

You will find that when Dave asks a question, especially of a new member (unfortunately, there is a kind of trial-by-fire tradition around here that most members have to struggle through), he really wants an answer. And this is usually for good reason.

You mentioned "nervous circulation" and "Polar Conduits". Dave (and others) really want to know from what source or authority you got those terms, because they do not respond to a google search (of which Dave is a Jedi master). He ,and I, and others think that the terms have a vague echo of woo, and we are, quite frankly, evaluating you, because of this.

So if you can explain exactly how you came to use those two terms and give reference for that choice, you will go a long way in dispelling doubts here about your credibility!

Incidentally, your profile says you're 12 years old. You ought to change that to 19, it is less eyebrow-raising!

I am still really curious about your views on alternative medicine, including osteopathic medicine and chiropractic. I truly don't know what allopathic medicine is yet, but I am researching it as we speak. Please read the wiki article and comment as you see fit.

Hello;

So I posted a few posts already, but I thought that maybe I should introduce myself...

My name (really) is Simon. I originate from Brittany (in France). Was born in an atheist family but was schooled in Roman Catholic schools until my graduation. Also, most of my friends are religious so I sorta heard from both side of the discussion.

I don't feel I can make a definitive judgement on the subject, so my brain is agnostic but my guts tend to lean against atheist. Damn these meddling internal organs!

I travelled and lived in a bunch of countries, including Egypt; UK; Mexico and now, Mississippi (for my work).

I am now studying for a PhD in Vet. Science with a minor in microbiology. I find particularly interesting the relation between pathogens and their host and their co-evolution.
As such I am particularly sensitive about the subject of ID/Creationism... It's not close minded and lazy, it's also depriving yourself of a beautiful example of nature's work.

But I also have a lot of other interest including SF/fantastic (and the claims of such actually happening) as well as history and the bronze age/early Iron age world particularly...

Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

Welcome to SFN, RadioMusicBox!!!

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Why not question something for a change?

Welcome to SFN Lorriedjn!

Yup, nothing like a TAM event to get the neurons firing!

Hi!

Thought I'd check in here. It's been a while.

Hey, Kil! I'm sorry I didn't make TAM this year, and therefore missed the chance to shake your hand again.


If you think it's work, you're doing it wrong.

Hi Badger!!! It's always good to see you in this little corner of the internet.

Hopefully you will be at the next TAM, and hopefully I will be there too. That way, I can shake your hand and get some time to talk with you about SFN the JREF, skepticism and the universe. Or we can just hang and throw back a couple brews...

I must warn everyone:

I write doggerel. Also limericks. And I do it stone cold sober. It mostly rhymes but the scansion sucks.

However, I met Reynold over at Ray Comfort's dreadful blog, where I hang out mostly to be a nuisance and make the nonbelievers crack up occasionally. I've gifted Ray with a few bits'n'bobs of my versifications, and recently complained that ole Ray wasn't letting me post my most recent creation.

Reynold, gentleman that he is, invited me to post it here instead.

Just remember, Reynold, that no good deed goes unpunished.


Not the Atheist's Nightmare (by Weemaryanne)

For Ray and his little friend Kirk
The banana's a marvellous work,
("Ain't no better fit
For a Sapien's mitt!)
Despite all the research they shirk.

Welcome to SFN, weemaryanne!

You know that it isn't a crime
To poke fun at Ray Comfort in rhyme
He may not post it
Embarrassed to host it
But I for one loved every line



My turn to duck...
