    Oops misread it, my bag. Yup, I'd guess that his intuition is introverted, thus making him an INTJ. I doubt that he's an INFJ, and if you watch a tiny portion of the video below (starting around 4:30), you'll see why. YouTube- Norm MacDonald Interviewed Pt.1

    Let's take a look at what you said earlier:"Faith in the peer-review system can only be held by one who knows nothing about the subjective process of deciding who gets published and who does not - it has little to do with anything to be proud of. If a person invests a great deal in bribes and...

    Norm's definitely an introvert. While he was working at SNL, he'd always avoid parties with the cast after the show and he rarely socialized with the cast members. He's described himself as a recluse that prefers to stay in the house and never gets lonely, and Artie Lange said that he's almost...

    There's little doubt that academia has a liberal bias, but is it not a bit presumptuous to conclude that it is corrupted at the core — or perhaps even a global, nefarious conspiracy — without corroborating evidence? If such corruption/conspiring exists, why did the thousands of hacked...

    Science & religion ?

    Here's an example to illustrate my point: What if I claimed that the entire universe was created one week ago? Perhaps the galaxies, planets, and all living things were created last week with the illusion that everything we observe has existed for more than one week. This claim may be...

    Science & religion ?

    No, and I definitely was not trying to give off that impression. Logical positivism relies on the assumption that, for a claim to be meaningful, it must be possible to prove that claim true or false. I make no such assumption, as that in itself is a claim that cannot be proven true or false...

    This is true, but it presents the problem that we cannot rationally evaluate the validity of an argument without some form of agreement on the rules of the game. Perhaps it would be easier to state the rule (supposedly) violated, explain why the logic is flawed, and see if we agree on those...

    This is my, what, 19th post on this topic? I'm guessing that I've uttered something resembling an argument in those 19, mostly tl;dr posts. If the rules of logic are no longer suspended, perhaps I should examine one of your arguments: Quoting Bible verses is an appeal to authority. Do you...

    Hah, you can't find logical flaws in my arguments so you point out one in a half-sarcastic comment I made about you. Congratulations!

    I think he's operating on a whole new level.

    Wow, that was actually watchable.

    Science & religion ?

    I love changing my mind and I do it constantly. Unlike you, however, I have no faith in my intuition or emotions. I try to approach everything as objectively as humanly possible because objectivity (well, as close as us humans can come to objectivity) has an excellent track record...

    Science & religion ?

    In most cases, yes. Theories are (at least in theory) explanations for occurrences that use concrete facts as supporting evidence. However, when the evidence reaches a certain threshold, the probability of such a theory being wrong approaches zero. It's always probabilities, never...

    Science & religion ?

    This statement makes absolutely no sense to me for three reasons: The concept of a flat earth was a religious doctrine, not a scientific theory. Even Ancient Greek astronomers determined that the earth was round centuries before the scientific method was developed. Galileo was accused of...

    Science & religion ?

    Are you serious? I already explained why Blob's "logic" on the issue of faith and evidence is fallacious, and I didn't have to cite any Bible verses: I've also made it quite clear why I'm ignoring "his blanket statements... when he is trying to back them up." If he has immunity from the...
