When does genuine ignorance become willful ignorance?

    • ColorStorm says:

      I’ve asked the question before and it appears the obvious answer escapes most.

      Can humans walk or sleep on ceilings like insects?

      Can you walk around that globe , I mean basketball, like an ant? So your gravity refuses you the same benefit that it allows them?

      As to ‘you guys,’ I suggest you study your own heroes doctrines, such as HOW railroads can possibly function on a ball.

      Bill Nye probably can’t sleep at night trying to figure that out. Thus do the true laws of physics and true science, along with common sense, prove that butterfly’s are oblivious to ‘gravity.’

    1. Hi Ken-

      The obvious implication no doubt escapes you. If u knew the context of the discussion, you would know it is absolutely relevant.

      I would be more concerned if I were you as to how locomotives traverse a basketball…..

      ……but perhaps you never heard the word ‘plane’ or horizontal…… or sea level.

      The engineers would be scared Sh##^*##. Lol

      Enjoy and have a ball!!!!

            Nobody, and I mean no body , who works as hard as you at being the Consummate Arsehole, can believe the stuff you spew out.

            If you are not pulling everyone’s leg – which in the case of your ”Christian faithful” would be quite cruel I must be honest – then all I can think of by way of an explanation is that you are seriously mentally ill.

            I would have to defer to someone such as Prof on this as he has had professional experience dealing with such illness.

      1. John, do you have an equal problem believing the science that the rest of the planet’s and the moon’s in our solar system are spheroid? Or is it just Earth that is flat out of them all?

        1. Im also intrigued by the apparent size and distance of the sun–it’s a child’s explanation of why the sun isn’t much larger than the moon and that’s why eclipses; children don’t always understand perspective, so in drawings they tend to make everyone the same size, no matter where in the drawing they are.

          This kind of reasoning also means that the sun, which is apparently only a tad bigger than the moon, is much cooler and dimmer than we once thought. It explains, of course, why it goes dark–it’s hiding behind the moon! When it comes out of hiding it rotates around the earth, making it light here and there, and then at the end of the day it hides behind the moon again.

          Gotta stop. Im scaring myself.

      In Random Rationality, Fourat Janabi takes this point on and it’s fascinating. Seems the original flat earther’s weren’t dumb at all, they just got their math a bit wrong. Of course I can’t remember the actual figures now, but they were off in their calculations by only a bit, but that little bit was the difference between them concluding a flat earth and not a round earth.

      1. I saw the ‘spin the round sponge full of water’ demonstration a short time ago. The water flies off. The reality of that trick should be spinning it one revolution over a 24 hour period. In their theory, the earth spinning at 1000mph would just fly the water out into space. But, even when you comprehend how BIG the earth really is, it’s hard to grasp

          1. thank you zande for all the work you do, the collections of opinions of others to add to your resume that says I am a knucklehead. One would be so honored to have such a reverential place in the archives of netsville.

            You do have a problem though doncha know, to be so aligned with they who you other wise despise. Reminds me of the false confederacy between Herod and Pilate, and how they as mutual misfits, conspired that there was one worse: Christ!

            You are no different, so I should thank you doubly, not worthy of accolades mind you but tkx. And oh, btw, nice work avoiding the TRUE science, and cloaking your ignorance behind character assassination, so I’ll ask again:

            Have YOU ever seen the earth move one inch? Does REASON and your SENSES confirm your bias, or expose it? Ever heard of a horizontal railroad datum line, where trains CANNOT traverse a ball?

            Doncha just love science john, and how opinions are a dime a dozen yet useless? Maybe a visit to an ocean would do you good, so you can figure out WHY ships allegedly disappear. Don’t be afraid of results, that is, if honesty is your master. You will lose friends, but gain a sound mind, regardless of the scorn.

  4. Ark, left this comment for ColorfulSprinkles on his blog. 🤭 Wouldn’t be surprised one bit if he deletes it. Anyway, here’s my comment for CS…

    ——————————–

    I had the honor of reading some paragraphs from a particular blog, a “True Christian” blog specifically, that was critiquing another blog’s content. It went…

    I ran across the other day of discourse in an often social-media discussion with a pleasant gentleman about about various topics. It was the last topic that allowed some firsthand insight on glaring bias, perception, and mental games which people have for one popular reason: the illusion of mental perfection availed to them from an invisible (psychiatric?) force, and its perceived protection from ancient, foreign ideals. It starts out like this…

    Had the privilege the other day of engaging in a rare face-to-face discussion with a thoughtful fellow about this that, and the other. It is the ‘other’ that allowed me some finer thoughts on bias, perception, and strongholds which people have for well, no other reason than the illusion of mental safety, and the protection of long-held ideals.

    A logical, reasonable question often arises when in casual conversation with thousands and thousands of strangers we meet every month, every year — unless one is anti-social with perhaps agoraphobia 😉 — about the nature of Yeshua the Nasorean, or of the Nasi, and his purpose. Why was he thought to be the Messiah or another false Messiah out of many previous claimants. Knowing full well the answer to the trap-question I was rhetorically asking, it took the conversation in my preferred direction. “What was the Artificial Insemination of Mariam/Maryam?” The naive gentleman immediately answered with authority and stated:

    In order for the foretold Lamb of God to be the one and only pure and acceptable sacrifice for Humanity’s fallen state and total depravity, he could NOT be born of impure, tainted blood of Man. Otherwise, the sacrifice on Calvary is null and void.

    It was a very good, exegetical answer, straight from the Synoptic Gospels. However, I told him this was a common misconception by those who do not have the special powers of the Holy Spirit that I have and therefore he was dead wrong along with millions of other (luke warm) “Christians.”

    He gasped, and his eyes popped out of his head, figuratively speaking 😉 as he thought I was certifiable. Which isn’t a bad second assumption either. I simply brought forth an important point about TRUE BELIEF ™ , and how so many cling desperately to vapors, without having examined the wind direction — because being a carnivorous lion as I am, I always sniff up and down-wind and in the groin and rear areas of lionesses — and by not having my special Holy powers and exceptional nose, the ill-informed gentleman has limited vision and sniffers which therefore lead to faulty mating practices.

    Isn’t it ironic that I stumble onto THIS blog-post claiming supreme exegetical authority as well. Odd… very odd. LOL

    1. And CS has unsuccessfully tried to goad me into useless merry-go-rounds with him, blah, blah, blah, ditto, ditto, yip-a-dee doo-dah… so here’s my last comment to this senseless use of space:

      ——————————–
      A quote from CS:

      You should try getting out inthe real world prof, you know, the one with lakes, rivers, oceans, ships, planes, get that?

      Hahaha… if you had halfway tried to get to know and understand who I am, where I’ve come from, where I’ve been, what I’ve been through, what my successes and (opportunistic) failures have been — exactly like anyone else’s on the planet — you’d realize what an utterly IGNORANT statement (above) that is with no justification whatsoever, much less holding zero accuracy. But then, I can excuse your folly because in reading your stuff, personal opinions, and your style of interacting with other bloggers, like-minded OR otherwise, and what little about yourself you freely disclose here on your blog, your true nature and agenda is glaring, self-aggrandizing, and frequently if not always… wrong and distorted. But please don’t take my word or several other words from others — accredited or well-read, well-educated about your game — get honest with yourself and by default with others, and test everything you write and believe by many INDEPENDENT experts. Yet, I know you’ll refuse that as well… because it scares you to be shamefully and embarrassingly wrong. 😉

      Have a good day (life) in your theme park CS.

Wilful ignorance comes in when perfectly valid examples are given to show why there is erroneous thinking on a topic, and the ignorant person simply returns to repeating the same utterly discredited claptrap as before.

  10. Ark I know I asked you earlier today but for the others who may have a few ideas. How did a mammal as weak, slow, with underdeveloped fangs and claws, unimpressive sense of smell and hearing compared with other predators, manage to survive and thrive with all the predatory dinosaurs? Think of it, in the Jurassic Park movies these meat eaters of all sizes put a butt hurt on the best modern humans can throw at them. Yet our ancestors who did not have even metal tools somehow lived with them and became the dominant species? That takes a special kind of brain fuck to accept. Hugs

    1. Hey Scottie, as modern humans we have lost a lot of the scenses our ancestors had for survival. Obviously they didn’t have dinos to contend with nonetheless there was some pretty serious predators hanging about. Think of Africa you still have people living among lions, leopards, hyenas and the like and they manage to survive. Put a city type in that environment how long would you give them?
      As an experiment let’s nominate a pain-in-the-arse religious blogger to try the survival game! Could make great reality tv, better than the Kardwhatsichans.

      1. I agree but from my understanding our ancestors did not have the speed , power , nor as good at hearing and smelling as the predators were. I thought that was one reason we developed the flight mode of handling fear. As for the predators in Africa and humans of today, I do not see that being near the same as humans having to fight off Tranasours and the different packs of raptors for example. There are less predators today and the humans have weapons not available to our ancestors.
        As for big cats hunting in cities Earth Planet 2 has a whole section on leopards that do hunt and thrive in cities. I think they filmed in India. The cats prowled near people and the people did not even know that they were there. They had whole systems worked out. Hugs

Granted man has done his worst in killing many off but it’s all about balance, the predator to prey ratio.
