"There's no "trade off" if you use the real Occam's razor for the purpose it's meant to be used for."

I just thought this was hilarious because it emulates the Jewish concept of "bashert" and Protestant concept of "predestination". It's a "no true scotsman" fallacy where only those who have a "calling" of understanding the appropriate ratio of simplicity to explanatory power of Occam's razor in advance of experience can use it.

I don't support creationism, but for all Lizard opposes it, it sure seems supported.

That's more or less the response I've gotten in all of the votes in that debate so far. They're just denying the obvious and stating the inane for the sake of being contrarian.

It's either that, or they're incredibly stupid. I'm trying to give them the benefit of the doubt.

Aye. Pardon me for not being reverse racist. Just because some care doesn't mean all do.

It's everyone else. Losing the debate 0-14 certainly doesn't imply anything about you.

If I was losing because it made sense, OK, but last I checked, quantity doesn't come before quality. I haven't read a single vote against that actually dealt with the argument. It's just an abundance of brutal assertions.

I've only been here about a week and I already have my first call-out thread! Cool!

Dak, I have no idea what the hell you're talking about in this thread, but come on. How many people have to vote for me before you start to think that maybe it's you?

No argument there. Utilitarianism is the foundation of communism.

I just wish self-proclaimed socialists understood how they complained about big business working the same way.

Depends on what communism you're talking about...

Epsilon: There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.
