    Fort McMurray Or... What Happens when you deny Climate Science

    Yep, it's all good. Insurance took care of any worries. So far every government agency has stepped up and been very helpful. We have refugees from the fire staying in our tutoring building in Calgary and we are supplying them with tickets home. We should be just fine.

    Fort McMurray Or... What Happens when you deny Climate Science

    You're right. There was considerable funding cuts to this years provincial emergency relief in Alberta.

    Fort McMurray Or... What Happens when you deny Climate Science

    I had to evacuate my home in Alberta because of this fire and I am 30km south of it. It is the worst fire we have ever had. There is no denying how dry it has been this season in Alberta, but last season was exceptionally wet and we experienced less fires than an average year.

    "NDEs Absolutely, Positively NOT Caused By Malfunctioning Brains"

    Good read but one of of the earlier lines of "evidence" refer to Eben Alexander's "remarkable" NDE. I'll pass on that fraud, thanks.

    How not scary is Doom 4?

    The Last of Us was a big let down... While I enjoyed the story it was very slow to get to the end of it and encounter the game as they wanted me to experience it. I played it on the hardest difficulty at first (as I do with most games) and found my ammo supply just fine. The ability to sneak...

    The Death of the Universe

    Yes, I will die and you will die. We will all perish and perhaps our consciousness will be extinguished and perhaps not. Perhaps it is joined in to a supreme consciousness, perhaps it survives individually. But, the fact is, we will die and when we die we will experience something and...

    How not scary is Doom 4?

    Doom, for me, was one of the best action games I played in my youth. It was quite an adventure and one I recall fondly lol I agree, though, Sci.. the new one is more action-packed slaughterfest than it is scary. Maybe it's hard to get a really scary game that is fast-paced but I don't know...

    Russian Millionaire wants to upload our minds to computers - thoughts?

    Russian Millionaire wants to upload our minds to computers - thoughts?

    My initials thoughts too. It's the teleportation paradox all over again. I would think the original is still destined to power off; the consciousness wouldn't leap from my brain to the new system. It would be cloned rather than uploaded. The original would go its own way and so would the new...

    AI program beats human 3-0 at ancient Chinese game GO - thoughts?

    I'll bet you love that, Arouet (tell me if I'm wrong). The "impressive feat ! " ...... I suspect it thrills you that there might be a chance that it could demonstrate that we actually are nothing but biological robots ? Man, Tim.. stop it. Arouet appreciated the link and you just denied it...

    Statisticians issue warning over misuse of P values

    There was no bait. That's the point Arouet was addressing and why I chimed in. So, it is your "fault that he took a dismissive comment as an attack" because it seems like it still is.

    Awakening just minutes before a pre-set alarm...

    This is pretty much every day for me. I rarely get to hear the alarm clock's noise anymore. I usually wake up before it goes off by about 5-15 minutes and I have a very unreliable/sporadic sleep schedule. I have never attributed it to some form of psi but rather a dislike for that damn alarm...

    Statisticians issue warning over misuse of P values

    I disagree. I've been around Arouet's postings a bit longer than you and I see his "stance" as pretty skeptical towards anything at first and has changed his mind in light of evidence several times. I think a healthy skepticism is better than the bending-over for any pro-parapsychology article...

    Dean Radin

    I've noticed he has stepped out of the limelight also. He isn't keeping up with his blog, but then again he is getting older and perhaps his interests in the subject aren't as intense as they used to be. Or, maybe it's the opposite. Maybe he is so involved in something he enjoys that he...

    Gravitational Waves Detected?

    While I do think this is the real deal. We did detect a distortion of space-time and Einstein's predicted waves, I can't help but remember the "Faster-than-light neutrinos" discovered a while back that turned out to be hogwash but was all over media sites.

    Need some help with IP ban at work

    Hey guys, I need some assistance figuring out why my work IP is banned on Skeptiko forums but my home IP is not. As far as I know I've never done anything to warrant a ban so I'm just curious who to talk to about this problem because there are times when I'm on my lunch break that I want to...

    Movies: Is Ex Machina ignoring the hard problem of consciousness? |300|

    That was literally the first time I've ever let people know there was a spoiler haha sorry if I used it wrong... And I agree again, it was a good movie.

    Movies: Is Ex Machina ignoring the hard problem of consciousness? |300|

    I just watched this on Netflix the other night and I agree, they kept it very vague, in that, it was hard to tell the actress apart from the character. It seemed more human than machine, obviously, because the actress playing it was human :P. I mean, it was hard to tell because we all have...
