thaiboxerken wrote: Randi's opinion is half correct. Yes, one can be skeptical of many things. But if a person is of faith, then they are lacking skepticism regarding that thing in which they have faith in. In other words, they aren't being skeptical towards their "god".

What the fuck does this have to do with the Pope and gay marriage, anyway?
That was the question directed to you.
http://www.randi.org/jr/050903.html
Remember you wrote this before to this question:
.Do you know that some skpetics leaders believe in God and pray?

"thaiboxerken"------->"That's not very skeptical of them, is it?"
(what the ..... this answer have to do with the Pope and gay marriage?)

And now you admit the leader Randi is ONLY half correct.
Comon , that's not very skeptical of them and is not very skeptical of you.

Or are you afraid to say it again?
thaiboxerken wrote: That is total bullshit. People on the JREF forum hardly revere Randi and Hal as god and pope. All you have here is some form of insult. You stupid fuckstick.
Why?
Some people (very few...hardly? ) revere Randi as a God. An Hal is his Pope ( his "infalible" representant at the Forum).

What is the JREF?--> An Education Foundation to train lawyers or doctors?
Who are the leaders of the JREF?--> Sylvia Browne or Uri Geller?
What are the goals of the JREF? --->To have faith ?
Or are they educating people to be believers?
I am sure you know the answers.

Now you know a little more about that kind of "skepticism"you are defending.
And now you know a little more how you used your double speech and your insulting method to hide your ignorance..

What the fuck kind of "logic" is this? You make absolutely no sense. I stand by my statement, that it is not very skeptical to have faith in a god.

Why?

It is a fucking insult and you KNOW it, don't give me this shit. Name one person who reveres Randi as a god and Hal as his Pope. You are a fucking liar.


What is the JREF?--> A foundation dedicated to finding the truth about paranormal claims.

Who are the leaders of the JREF?--> James Randi is.

What are the goals of the JREF? ---> To educate people on the importance of critical thinking, science and to investigate paranormal claims.

Or are they educating people to be believers? No, they are educating people to be critical in their thinking.

This is what I understand of the JREF. Notice, there is no faith being preached, no dogma.. no oath is taken to follow Randi or Hal. No appeals to authorities are made or dictated.

Now you know a little more about that kind of "skepticism"you are defending.
And now you know a little more how you used your double speech and your insulting method to hide your ignorance..


Insults are all you deserve, as reasoning with you in impossible. You are not a reasonable person. You are not intelligent either. You are nothing but a stupid ass-clown that humps pole all day.

Now you admit that there is an Educational Foundation(JREF) that promotes skepticism ( a kind of school of speticism ) that can have faith in God and that is stupid for you because is not very skeptical.

False. Randi may have is opinions, but the JREF is a collection of people with different opinions about that particular issue. There is no written "jref rules of skepticism" that all must follow to be in the foundation. Even believers in psychics can be in the JREF.

The JREF is not promoting a type of skepticism. You stupid nincomepoopie head.

I'm sorry, Varlos, what do you mean? You're saying that "JREF/Kramer" has the St. Aquinas scrolls, or proof of UFO's, or what? You asked about questioning of faith, I'd think Aquinas is right in the middle, here.

It's true, you know. The JREF is a School for Skeptics. We in the skeptic trade call it Skeptic University, or SKEP-U for short. Here's a sample of a typical course schedule:

SKU 101 Intro to Skepticism
Students will learn the basic history of skepticism and some of the rudimentary tools of skepticism. Students will learn to identify simple bullshit and woo-woo hoo-hoo.
4 credit hours.

SKU 201 Intermediate Skepticism
Course covers detailed history of skepticism and identifies founding skeptics and current leaders of the skeptic movement. Students will learn to identify complex bullshit and woo-woo hoo-hoo doo-doo.
4 credit hours.

SKU 301 Advanced Skepticism
Advanced techniques of identifying intricate bullshit and woo-woo hoo-hoo doo-doo yoo-hoo. Advanced methods of dissecting logical fallacies. Students must demonstrate their skeptic capabilities against a genuine woo-woo in order to pass course.
4 credit hours.

SKU 401 Expert Skepticism
You will learn to destroy any argument at will.
4 credit hours.

AMZ 101 Intro to Amazing Randi

4 credit hours.

...

There are many more courses available. Upon graduation from the JREF University of Skepticism, you will receive a diploma that establishes to any and all that you are a Registered Skeptic. This priceless document will cause you to be called upon by people far and wide to spread the Gospel of Randi. It will be your job to stand up at marriage ceremonies and shout objections to the joining of the bride and groom; to point out to little children at the mall at Christmas that Santa Claus isn't real and that Jesus probably isn't either; to laugh sarcastically at gatherings of family and friends when someone starts talking woo-woo; and when people complain, you can show them your diploma from the JREF School of Skeptical Thought.

This message brought to you by Cardinal Pyrrho, Bishop of Cleveland, Holy Roller Church of Randi, under the auspices of His Holiness Hal the Blessed, and Saint Carl of Sagan, patron of Baloney.

SKEP-U, woo-woos.

I don't agree with his statement.

Faith is normal, not paranormal or supernatural. It is when people believe in something without question.

Or Faith is skepticism?

No, it is the opposite of skepticism.

I don't understand that question, what does this mean?

How can faith can not be questioned?

Faith is often questioned, by the nonfaithful.

Are not they promoting, given their own example, to be a person of faith and also an skeptic?

Yes, I think it is a contradiction as well.

Tell me the consequences of promoting this.

It conveys a message that people's religions and gods should not be questioned. I don't agree with the statement that a person of faith can also be a skeptic.

Yes, they educate. It is an educational foundation.

Yes, James Randi, leader of the JREF, is a skeptic.

Yes, this board is related to skepticism.
Is this skeptical community related to the JREF , in some way ?
A complicated question. There are users here who also post at the JREF Forum. There are users here who are probably members of the JREF. This site exists because the JREF Forum will be eliminating parts of itself that it does not want. Other than that, there is no relation between this forum and the JREF. The JREF does not own this forum, nor does it administer this forum. The JREF itself has nothing to do with this forum.

Can a person be both a skeptic and a person of faith?

The answer is, Mr. Randi and I agree, a resounding YES.

Is Faith something paranormal and /or supernatural?
You have not defined "faith", but I assume you mean "faith in God". Faith is the combination of human emotion and intellect. It is neither paranormal nor supernatural. It is human.
Is Faith skepticism?
It is a personal decision. I would not call it skepticism; however, if a person has faith yet continues to question his faith, he is practicing skepticism.
How can faith and skepticism can be promoted as natural?
A person may have developed "faith" as a result of skeptical questioning of his beliefs, thoughts, and outside events. Again, if one continues to question one's faith, one may still be practicing skepticism. This can be considered natural.
How can faith can not be questioned?
Some people never question their faith. This is called "true belief". Others question their faith, whether that faith is in God or in science.
Are not they promoting, given their own example, to be a person of faith and also an skeptic?
That's pretty much what Hal Bidlack says in his article.
Tell me the consequences of promoting this.
The consequences are that people such as you will complain about it. Also, that the JREF might not be seen as an organization that promotes atheism. which it isn't.
Thanks,

Another contradiction in JREF goals
And if FAITH is according to you something more related to believers(aka woo woos)....then there is a conrtradiction.

I will make an exception and answer a Carlos post:

Carlos, there is no contradiction between faith and scepticism, quite the contrary.

To say "I have faith in this" means "I do not know, but I choose to accept this"; a true skeptical stance.

In contrast, believers say "I know this is so". That is not a skeptical stance because without proof, you cannot know.

Comprendes?

Mmm, I don't have my Spanish dictionary handy, but I believe "comprendes" is third person singularis.

Only if you are being friendly. The relevant words for "you" in Spanish are "tu<--with an accent" and "usted." The former is the familiar form that would be used with "comprendes" and the latter is the formal one, used with "comprende." I imagine that Doc X would be keeping the ignored one at a distance.

However, I think you can also use "tu<--with an accent" when talking down to someone.
I guess there he chose to err on the side of more votes. -[size=75]Grammatron[/size]

Indeed, and in Spanish Spanish, one usually uses the third person singular for questions unless you really know the person well--el hermano es su amigo.

Entonces, [Stop that!--Ed.] while the change in endings is confusing, it does allow you to know what the verb is doing with regards to time and who is doing it. With Japanese, you have no such changes for subject and fewer changes for tense. Easier to learn, but harder to figure out from context!

English does it in its own wierd way, but we like pronouns.

To make such wonderful signs as that or even ? goeth thou to:

HTML 4.0 Character References

Somewhere I have it for Hebrew, but it never shows up on my browsers.

Which means you can write .
