Is juliar actually insane?

Doesn’t think about what it says very carefully. Look at this idiocy:

Mal's Snowy scheme is just an extension of the very successful Snowy Scheme and is totally viable as it uses off peak hydro capacity to pump huge amounts of water uphill.


Yup, using hydro to pump water to store for hydro. :huh

(Turnbull to hike powerbills thread.)

Freediver himself is not far off it:
Mr Abbott dismissed the argument that a large majority of scientists argue that the science of climate change is settled, saying "the claim that 99 per cent of scientists believe" is "as if scientific truth is determined by votes rather than facts".

There is no such thing as "scientific truth". What we refer to as scientific theories and laws are entirely determined by consensus among the scientific community. The philosopher of science Thomas Kuhn wrote extensively on it. This process of seeking consensus is a necessary part of scientific progress. Science is not facts. It is the understanding of those facts, and this understanding is entirely defined by what the scientific community agrees they mean. This consensus is what is taught in schools, and no doubt what Abbott mistakenly refers to as "scientific truth".

There are plenty of facts behind these opinions. Too many to know what to do with unless you are involved in the field. Without the process of seeking consensus within the scientific community all you have is a sea of facts and no objective guidance on how to navigate them. Like the rubbish you see about every cold snap disproving global warming.

Tony Abbott is taking advantage of and reinforcing a popular misconception about the reality of science to score cheap political points.


Bullshit! Science is finding and testing theories. Peer review, consensus is just examining the validity of the experiments, redoing the experiments to make them fail (if possible) and looking for ways to get a better explanation. If an experiment cannot be falsified it is accepted until a better theory comes along.

But the scientific method is trying to falsify theories by experiment. FD thinks he knows a lot (scientific method, evolution) but he really doesn’t.

juliar just types what the Liberal Party tells him to. He's a brainless fuckwit.

I'm pretty sure DRAH is insane - did you see his nonsense yesterday?

Looks like he's copped a ban for it.

Ahahahaha I admit I like DRAH tho he does get on my tits with his repetition.

It is a good thing I am banned or I might tell him something that might wreck the friendship. FD or Dic should have laid down the law weeks ago: one anti–SSM thread and that is it! been running amok, rather.

Yeah, he can go overboard at times.

Yesterday he was accusing everyone of teaching sodomy to his kids.

He just wouldn't let up.
