I would ask the mod to step in at this point, but he is a self confessed sceptic too.
It still seems that this is reallty just an idea you have about how things are, perhaps influenced by a grudge against science rooted in bad teachers/schooling from a point earlier in your past.
If this is not ad hominem then I'm at a loss to think what would be

As I recall, my own question remains unanswered and no it has not been discussed by anyone but myself. An explanation is required or your accusations are invalid. Can it be that scepticism has its own agenda and uses science as a cover?:
Formal logic is our word based gift from nature that helps us understand what's going on.
Science and scientific mathematics avoid formal logic because science is not logical. An idea of what physics thinks of logic can be found here:

It is in the nature of science that something being proved must also be able to be disproved.

The sceptical view of science is that it will someday reach a mythical pinnacle where everything will be explained - a theory of everything, contrary to the idea of disproof.

This is, first not science and second illogical, as a theory of everything is impossible because it's impossible to be sure that you know what everything is.

The prevailing opinion on this forum is directed towards not seeming to believe or denying the very quintessence of the science it supports.

It may be a good idea to sort out where we all stand regarding such things? ;)
Not a peep, not a protestation, not an answer from anyone? ;)

Apart from the forty-one pages of responses in this thread alone, none at all.

I have been keeping an eye on things, but since the rudeness and discourtesy seems so evenly spread, it's hard to tell who's worse. No one actually complains in a proper fashion and the argie-bargy continues.

To this...not a peep:

It requires a declaration in support of real science or pure dogmatic scepticism
It indirectly asks the question: is your science a religion or a research tool?

PM This is what it's really about.

This problem will persist as long as you let the sceptics call the shots on a Fortean forum.
This problem will persist as long as you encourage the sceptics to drive true Forteans off the forum.

In support of the above, there is a post by cherry-b that says, 'We've had people like you before, but they don't last long'.

This is blatant sceptic infiltration for the sole purpose of destroying Fortean philosophy.
You and the other mod's are directly responsible for allowing the destruction of the only Internet based Fortean Times message board.
Shame on you all!

You are confusing those who are sceptical of your views as being sceptics about everything else too. It also seems that you are unfamiliar with the posting history of the people you berate for being sceptics, and about the discussions they've been involved in.

This forum is not overrun nor controlled by sceptics. All that is happening is that some people don't share your ideas and have been challenging them on various levels. Why did you expect otherwise, if you post such things on a public internet forum? Were you perhaps expecting everyone to agree with you? Was this all perhaps an exercise in self-aggrandisement on your part?

This thread seems more than a little fractious at the moment, so I'm temporarily closing it (in order both to catch up and to let things cool down), then we'll decide how to carry on.
