Started this discussion. Last reply by Tom Sarbeck Apr 13. 9 Replies

I work at an office environment. It's quite open to the public at times. Sometimes we get flyers promoting various woo from chiropractic crap to 'spiritual - deepak-chopra-type' nonsense. Usually I…Continue

In his book Thinking Fast and Slow, Daniel Kahneman describes an "illusion of skill" where too much weight is attributed to skill rather than other factors like blind luck. He recalls a time he was…Continue

"The entire series of Lost was just one big WTF moment, in a sort of wasteful, disappointing way. "

Logicallunatic replied to Unseen's discussion 'Resolved: Business doesn't create jobs, consumers do. Discuss...'
"Business creates specific jobs for the specific people they want i.e. a certain skill set or qualification. It's not for everybody, as conservatives want us to believe. "

"American media routinely confuses the terms  "Islamist" with "Islamic" and never mentions that there are Palestinian Christians in Gaza.  Islamic fighter or Islamist fighter? What is the difference? They follow Islam…"

Logicallunatic replied to Unseen's discussion 'Has ISIS finally done something that that might start WW3?'
"I don't understand why there isn't now a coordinated effort by western countries to mash ISIS out of existence on pure humanitarian grounds. This is different to Iraq 2003. "

Logicallunatic replied to Unseen's discussion 'Has ISIS finally done something that that might start WW3?'
"No. It's just the same old story. The Taliban, Al Queda and now ISIS (granted, are the most extreme), but Islamists have beheaded western journalists before and will do it again. ISIS will be forgotten in two or three years. They will be…"

"What did the Jews do to the Germans?’” I don't know, contributed to their scientific advancement in a disproportionate way?"

Logicallunatic replied to Stephen Gunn's discussion '“We Love Death..."'
"Yes but we don't need to "look for approval for fighting style" as you smugly suggested. It just happened to be something I read about the British that stuck in my mind. it could have been the Chinese or the Russians. The main point…"

"It was a comment about perceived courage in battle and how ridiculous it is. Nothing to do with the British. Get over yourself! "

Logicallunatic replied to Stephen Gunn's discussion '“We Love Death..."'
"There is a difference between using drones for precise strikes (which are fair game in my view) and firing weapons from heavy populated civilian areas.   At the battle of Omdurman, the British were impressed by the courage of the Muslim…"

Logicallunatic replied to Stephen Gunn's discussion '“We Love Death..."'
"That's a very good point Mike, well said. I would resist but wouldn't use human shields or fire from heavily populated civilian areas. If they want a fight, then man-up and grow a pair - soldier on soldier style."

Logicallunatic replied to Stephen Gunn's discussion '“We Love Death..."'
"I forgot to mention Hamas indirectly cause Palestinian casualties by firing from civilian neighborhoods and store rockets in civilian buildings. This is serious form of culpability."

"A lot of people read a few articles on this and seem to become experts on the geopolitics of the Middle East and Gaza conflict. When in reality they know nothing. They talk in buzzwords and catchphrases like "firing rockets" and…"

Logicallunatic replied to Unseen's discussion 'Is the US being drawn back into Iraq by ISIS/ISIL?'
"There is only one solution. Continue to bomb ISIS until they cannot organize in to a coherent unit, and if this takes forever, then so be it. "

Logicallunatic commented on Monica McGee (Monicks)'s blog post 'Is Free Thinking A Mental Illness?'
"Half of psychology is dubious to begin with. It's unscientific by nature. Seems as if they invent new disorders to justify more government money for research etc."

Logicallunatic replied to Unseen's discussion 'A little story of how helping people hurts them. Especially if you are a white girl.'
"One anecdotal piece in Huffpost doesn't negate all the good that has come from volunteering. A bit of perspective here. But yea I get the point about those unskilled-dreamy- idealists who may do more harm than good."
