I think we need a new theory here. Everybody has a
conspiracy theory and I have mine.

Here it goes. Has anyone noticed that when one Kook
disappears a new one shows up. Just as soon as one is
thrashed a new one pops up or an old one flys out of the
woodwork, it is almost like a tennis ball server or
some instrument is throwing them.

Premise 1. The kooks cannot withstand or put forth logical
arguments.
Premise 2. In their attacks against science they fly
head long into the published literature, in which savvy
individuals to show them there ignorance.
Conclusion as a result their arguments are beaten to the
point they are summarily discounted by most in the group.
Their supporters are left disenfranchised after a while, and
the run back into the cobwebs and dark places from which
they came.

Observation. That as soon as one kook disappears a new kook
reappears.
Hypothetical Premise. What if the disappearances of one kook
is associated with the reappearance of others.

New Theory.

Hyperdiffusionist Kook Theory of Science Groups on the
UseNet.

This theory stipulates that the kooks that invade and
recitate odd and unsupported theories on the UseNet are
connected via an unseen network behind the scenes. As part
of the agreement kooks in this diffusionist network
cooperate, not diluting one kooks argument until he is
thoroughly thrashed and has not other recourse than shut-up
or make an ass out of him or herself like Inger/Larry do.
Once one kook get tired of being kicked around like a mangey
street dog, they leave and a new junk-yard shows up to show
the world that mangey dogs have a place in acedemia. This
cycle repeats itself over and over again.
During the respite period of the kook, he gathers new
'junk' data or tries to reconcoct his theory in order to
make it appear that he has corrected old problems. The
individual may create a web-site of evenm try top squeeze
his junk into a publication or meeting which he can then
cite in the next go round. He/she may also be scanning
newsgroups or other groups for new argument techniques, or
carrying on email conversations trying to build support
behind the scenes for the next go round.
At the end of this period the individual gathers
sufficient nerve and sense of empowerment and once again
goes on the offensive, spreading to new niave venues (as
Jabby does), involving new groups of peoples, etc.

I think this new theory is adequate to explain many
phenomena.

1. Old Earth Creationist (Jabriol)
2. Young Earth Creationist
3. Extraterrestrial Creationist (Ed Conrad, Sirvent)
4. In Situ Creationist (Floyd, MIB)
5. Ape Theorist (MV, McGinn, Howard, Many others)
6. Hyperdiffusionist (Inger, Eric, Larry, others)
and a long list.

I think a conspiracy theory is warranted here as a perfect
explanation for the tandem and cyclical nature of the
arguments that we see. We can add to this the restrictions
placed on posting by talk.origins have notably increased the
direct posting by 2 kooks. Notice the number of threads
current that are authored by Ed Conrad but not followed up,
the same is true with Jabriol. With their target audiance
unable to increase the level of discussion of their target,
they are forced to increase their targeting of s.a.p. Inger
is an excellent example of this in sci.archaeology in which
her arguments are thoroughyl trashed she immediately shifts
the arguments to her potential victimization by all kinds of
villianous acts. We can see that these individuals try to
afford the occupation of groups with their activities, and
this generally continues till a new round of kooks show up
and take over. As a result I think it is safe to say
conspiracy to dominate groups with off-topic and illogical
material abounds in the science groups, with collaboration
by the kooks to perpertrate pollutive and unscientific
discussions for no other reason than to undermine the
purpose of groups.
As a result rather than waste our time discussing with
each kook the specific reasons why the individual is a kook
we need a new comprehensive theory and a constant thread in
which each of these theories are combined into a single
theory in which they can debate add nauseum about nothing,
joining and leaving that thread, wasting endless hours
looking for data to support that theory, and then after
spinning wheels for months, leaving and 'figuring' and
coming back.

What we need here is the perfect Kook Theory as a Diversion.
Sort of like chinese handcuffs.
Here are several proposals
Aquatic/Terrestrial/Astronomical Hypertestosteronize
Hyperdiffusionist Creation theory.
The error with creation theory is that it does not
adequately service all the different versions of
creationism. The Hyperdiffusionist Creation theory has
it that animals were created in many places, each being told
they were the first humans; however. As a result when these
humans contacted each other they discovered that their were
contradictions (hyperdiffusiionist critique). God
individually transformed all of these to Mankind and then
told them new stories

God told them they were
1. Brought by aliens
2. Born of exotic animals
3. Made from Dirt
4. Born of water
5. Born of Coal.

Then he told each group that the others were not first but
the other groups existed to provide their group with wives
for marrying. [This explains the inconsistency in the
biblical text]

God also provided longrange sea transport for any culture
that wanted to travel. Some groups were afraid so that they
were taken back to land after 40 days and told it was a
flood. The other groups were taken on guided tours of other
lands and returned after sharing techniques. God placed
roped bobbles just under the oceans surface that were marked
such that the ancient travels could tell longitude and
latitude. Each bottle contained a strong magnet that caused
the dial in the sun compassed to vibrate when it got close
to a longitudinal degree radian. However over time these
floatation deviced leaked and sank to the bottom of the
ocean floor.

For groups of people who believed they came from the ocean
he placed pearl bearing oysters at different depth
encouraging them to dive, For groups of people who believe
they came from the dirt, he had glowing mountains in which
commandments on how to live were given.

As god's testosterone levels increased he created more
groups; however, finally all this pleasing every group got
complicated and God ran out of testosterone and so currently
he is living in a cave alongside a lake in mongolia.

In order to explain culture this theory would have that all
culture was originally created by God after transforming
humans. At first god showed humans how to knapp stone, but
as per constant instruction resulting in massively swollen
hands god moved to teaching humans new techniques, like
pottery, and things that were easier to teach. The stone
tools that exist for 2.6 million years were failed attempts
to teach earlier creations.

The origin of God of course is a mystery; however in this
theory God was a Neandertal, with a superior intellect, had
discovered the fountain of youth and was doing genetics on
the lessor humans from africa. Over time however, the
Neandertals stopped having sex and began to die off, only
one very long lived Neandertal was left, and he traveled
around on his Sled with 8 reindeer, administering stories
and advice to all the worlds peoples. This is why the
reindeer species is spread so widely in the arctic.
This little addition takes into consideration what happened
to the not-intellectually inferior Neandertals (for AVG).
Neandertals were actually an alien species from another
planet and had secretly lived in Pennsylvania Coal Mines and
Europe for 250,000,000 years [reason why neandertals had a
long nasal region was to protect from brown lung disease].
One of the deficiencies of NEandertals is that he cannot
swim. In their attempts to interbreed with aquatic humans,
which at that time could only have sex underwater, the
Neandertals drowned and this is why Gods died out.

Anyone is free to add additional meat to this composite
theory of human evolution and archaeology if they want.

My take on this one is that there is a fundamental need in the universe for
a Kook, therefore, when one Kook leaves another must be created. The
Kookiness therefore must be transferred in some way.
I propose that the kookiness is transferred by fundamental particles which I
name (in full recognition of gluons, muons, gravitons etc) Morons.
I suspect that Moron transferrence is instantaneous and propose a series of
experiments where kooks are executed in a faraday cage under strict lab
conditions in the presence of a potential kook. the spped of new-kook
emergence can be timed. If we can only find a moron proof shield we could
execute kooks inside the shield and prevent moron transmission and,
hopefully, the spread of kookiness.

PD-

1) One needs to create a new ng: kook.origins to discuss and
worship/vilify various kook/kook theories

2) I think you are onto something with you astute analysis of kook /
ng dynamics. Their may be a stochastic distribution of kooks at any
given time but in each ng perhaps there is an alpha-kook...

3) kookism is relative: we would all be kooks in either the 15th or
25th centuries.

I think Philip expressed the frustration a lot of us feel about the content
of these newsgroups and did it with a lot more humor and spice than I could
have.

A few months back I would read a posting in SAP and wonder what this person
or that would say about the topic and regret that that particular person
didn't post here anymore. Think of the non-kooks this group (and SA, too?)
this group has lost. Now interesting topics are smothered by kook posts.

Paleoanthropology seems to be exploding , folks, it's got to be like
watching the first manned moon shot, and here we are in this mud puddle,
shooting damp clods back and forth. Is this the best we can do?

Oh Dear! Oh NO! We can't have this. Surely not the EXECUTION
of kooks. Oh, how politically incorrect! Surely it would be
better to rehabilitate them? I picture a large brick structure
with guard posts and towers, where kooks might be required to
experience daily inspirational motivational presentations, on
logic and proper scientific skepticism. And then, once rehab-
ilitated, they might be released back into our society (under
close supervision, of course) and become useful and productive
citizens once again.

To discover if they are properly rehabilitated, they'd be allowed
access to a computer equipped with a 1.44 modem, every 6 months
or so, and observed for an hour.

Those that fail the test more than 3 times might be required to
listen to an endless recording of Fran Dresher reading their own
posts, from the Google archives.

Much more than humane, I think.

I think we get the best Kook theory by slightly adapting Feynmann's
electron theory as explained by Atkins:

There is only one Kook in the universe, and what we think of as a lot
of Kooks is actually a slice through that Kook's path as it whizzes
backwards and forwards in time. That would certainly be an economical
universe.

FYI the term "Kook", as I remember, probably originated in the old black and white TV
detective show 77 Sunset Strip. Their teenager of all trades was one Gerald Kookson III or
Kookie for short. He drove a California custom car, dressed "hip," as opposed to the suit
and tie the other characters wore, and was always combing his hair, which was styled in
what was known then as a duck tail.
There was a briefly popular song titled "Kookie, Kookie lend me your comb" and a brief
fashion trend based on the way he dressed (casual with white socks)

I've never posted anything anywhere that supported the idea of
"In Situ Creationist", or anything close to it. What we have
there is another "creationist" expression by Philip Deitiker.
His only means of "winning" a debate is the "In Situ Creationist"
generation of a strawman that he can then find fault with.

He sure as Hell can't fight his way out of his paper bag
with logic!

All one has to do is mention "anthropology" and a flock of net

Anyone who says anthropology is not culture centric *is* a loon,

I can't agree. The fact being he accuses another of what he is guilty
of himself - I see nothing funny in that. IF PD expresses any
"frustrations" he shouldn't, as he is often the cause of unnecessary
"kook posts". I don't necessarily mean the weirdo views put, but the
abuse engaged in without any redeeming features at all.

Each and everyone of us can be a "kook" and a "non-kook", as occasion
dictates. I wouldn't segregate people into groups. SOME people
certainly deserve the title "kook" but then it does take persistent
and consistent hard work at being a kook before it can truly apply. It
takes something extraordinary to earn such a title.

In a ng where the people doesn't change a lot, two things can happen.
They become comfortable with each other's views and tend to treat new
people harshly, if they don't "conform". The other is they form two
groups who are opposed and throw mud at each other - and there is
little cross over. A newcomer is then labelled to belong to one group
or the other. It is impossible to be independent.

But there is also a third type. They are relatively few, but it is
THEY who most often kill good threads. They are the people who's prime
purpose is to abuse others above all - it can be a "non-kook" old hand
who doesn't like their "comfort zone" being disturbed. It can be a
right low life who takes pleasure in destruction - in real life they
are the graffiti vandal, the person destroying public property etc....
However you describe them they are the instigators of abuse, and it is
like a fresh cow-pat to blow-flies, others come from all corners to
join in! Oddly enough it is the VICTIM who usually ends up being
blamed! The reason is simple - shame, the perpetrators cannot accept
they were attracted by the smell of the fresh cow-pat and participated
in it!

Sadly enough it applies to most groups from time to time. Then people
move on to other groups or interests ......

That, and numerous ad hominems. You'll notice, when I said there's
no Clovis in Alaska, even though his very cites said it, he
flamed me. Then he invented a new definition of 'proto-' to cover
his ass.

He mainly made some very bad choice of words. Does 'evolve' mean
speciation or just a change in gene frequencies? Either way, he
loses: Under the former definition, humans evolved in Africa.
Under the latter, all populations are constantly evolving. So
the idea that Indians 'evolved in Asia' is a vacuous statement.

I know that. Say, did you know genetic distance has primates and
a few other orders of mammals only appearing in the Oligocene?
Problem is, the first tarsiers are in the Upper Cretaceous, found
in Europe and North America.

Well, duhh...What I meant is, Philip does. A net loon index of
+80 to +480 indicates that someone's delusional. At least in
long posts. In short replies, it's much stricter.

Philip himself taught it to me, so if he doesn't like it being
applied, he should avoid saying crazy things.

I'm reminded of Alice Fletcher. A liberal, Fletcher saw
assimilation as the only solution to the Indian problem. What did
it result in? A depression that some reservations still haven't
recovered from. She tried her best, but wasn't able to remove
herself from the Lewis Henry Morgan framework.

Cool, I like that one. We could have quarter fruit-loops, half fruit-loops and full
fruit-loops.
Then for those who really like to split hairs, eighth and sixteenth loops.
To make things really interesting maybe we could also have Illiamen loops (spelling on

The possiblilties are endless, inside fruit-loop vs outside fruit-loop

and you read this and responded because... you liked it, right? i mean, by your
own standards, if you didnt like what it said, you wouldnt have read it, and if
you didnt read it, you wouldnt have responded. but... how do you know if your
going to like or not it if you dont read it...? oh my, it is all so confusing.
thank you so much for setting me straight with this. so from now on, i can post
my views regardless of if they are flawed or not because i dont like anyone who
might post something in disagreement so i dont have to read it and i may
continue to be ignorant without conscience or guilt or most importantly,
accountability to varitability or fact.

i say 2+2=5. and no one can say anything to the contrair because you owe your
very existence to me making that statement. furthermore, because i dont like
anything anyone has to say against it i dont have to read it and can continue to
say 2+2=5 and be right. and of course i am right 'cause i've never read anything
that may contradict it.

wow. thats shallow.

Well, I hate to nit-pick, but according to the rigidly defined
dictates
of Nykosian Logic, that's a load of crap! And whatever happened to
the 'h' in Neanderthal?

As we all know, having carved the Sphinx, the Vikings moved to
Minnesota (airlifted by Abydos Helicopters), via Roswell, where
the Kensington Runestone was carved to boost the ailing tourist
industry in Area 51. Meanwhile, Grey Aliens, on advice from Yuri
Suchkinky, were infiltrating the area around what is now
Stonehenge,
and used native labour to build the Pyramids, which are obviously
not tombs, but gigantic....(cont. P.98)

ROFLMFA0. First off how would you charge the Morons and
second those are damn big particles for an accelerator.
Better Idea. We could build a railroad up some tall
mountain, like Everest. Then we could strap them to a
polemans car with several tons of rocket worthy explosives
and send them off in the direction of the sun. Then you
could watch what happens as they begin to enter the
coronasphere. This would save tremendous amounts of money
since you could use the suns gravity to accelerate them.
Alternatively with proper tradjectory you could use venus
and mercury to accelerate them even faster toward the sun.

Jois,

Just remember EXACTLY what was going on that few months back. Dont
forget, even if it would be convenient or if you would prefer the
"conclusion".

Who was it that "trolled" T.O. with inflamatory and insulting little
"commentaries"?

Who was it that insisted on baiting the extra-SAP loons into visiting this
particular
newsgroup via crossposted insults?

Just remember. And that is all I could ask.

You charge the Morons as they enter, before they become Cluons. And I
have an idea about accelerating them.

No, what you do is this (much cheaper, and there are inexhaustible
number of the core elements): find a really Dense Object. In the US, you
could use Rush Limbaugh or the news director of Fox News; here in my
country we have an object of similar density named Andrew Bolt. The UK
is a particularly rich source of these objects.

In the accelerator, you mount the Dense Object (or rather, have a
technician mount it for you; some jobs are beneath the purity of
research) at the center of the chamber, and when the Morons enter the
chamber, they will immediately be attracted to that point. However, to
prevent collision and the absorption of the Moron into the posterior
pole of the Dense Object, thus forming a richer particle than before,
you surround the Object with repulsive (to the Moron) objects, such as
textbooks or other informative and relatively objective documents.

The Morons will build up velocity as they attempt to move up the pole of
the Dense Object, all the while accruing more charge (which you will
relieve them of before the next phase transition, as once they do become
Cluons it is a lot harder to do this). Finally, just before they
evaporate in a cloud of entropy, you open a door into another chamber,
which we will call the "classroom" since that is where they acquire
class. However, the door is only half the width needed for each Moron to
pass side by side another Moron, and so they will collide before they
reach that chamber, fusing, and forming Cluons.

Once in the classroom they will reach equilibrium by acting as a
knowledge sink, forming content Cluons, and voting Democrat.

Unfortunately Rush is out of commission, his housekeeper
spilled the beans on his drug addition and he is in Betty
Ford for a clean up. After he is cleared of the drugs he has
been on for the last 30 years, it is unclear how useful he
will be as a Dense Object. Besides David Letterman has
entered the fray claiming that Rush in nothing more than a
sputtering bag of really hot gas [on drugs]. We do have some
incredibly dense folks in the U.S. however and one of them
lives in houston, in fact he lives down the road from me (Hi
way 90, old spanish trail) and goes by the name Tom Delay.
As his name implies he has some rather archaic thinking
patterns and political styles, he might be a better dense
objects, and if a moron flew up his posterior at a speed
close to the speed of light, I don't think it would
adversely affect the politics of the Sugarland congressional
district.

He promises to be denser than before, it seems, and alas, he's back:

Of course, he now has additional problems:

Your articles remind me of Ed Conrad. You use the same
logic.

Your main argument always seems to be that "science" is whatever
you think is right, and "myth" is whatever you don't agree with.

>The insipient

That is an insipient sentence. But you have repeatedly made
other comments just like it; hence, I can only imagine you
haven't got a clue what you are saying. At first I thought
it was incipient dementia, but I realize now that you've been
this way for some time...

See, there you go with mythology you claim is "science". Did
you find that evidence layered between coal seams?

I don't think you can explain it with or without...

So Indian and Eskimo culture originated in Asia... right along
with Proto-Clovis in Siberia, you found that between layers in a
coal mine!

You are ignorant and what you write is imprecise.

Not really. I reject flawed methodology of any kind, Philip.

And WHAT does that have to do with North America, exactly? Your
logic is "A and B are similar, therefore A and C are connected."
One might suggest the similarities between A and B suggest a
connection between A and B, but not that it suggests a connection
between A, B, and a third culture a third of a world away.

Um, try again, Philip. You can only know about current genetic
groups. And modern Indians are so mixed, your theory falls apart
right off the bat.

So the Mormons aren't hyperdiffusionists? LOL!

Anyway, there's already far too much evidence for pre-Clovis
habitation for your theory to work.

That's Philip for you. Oh, I can point out a semi-infinite number
of pre-Clovis sites, thousands of radiocarbon dates, and he won't
accept any of them because they're before any habitation of
Kamchatka.

Essentially, Philip forgets that Indians are the same species as
Ainu, Koreans, Orochon and others, Homo sapiens. I wonder how
many of these homologies would be present in pre-Columbian times.
I wonder how he defines 'most': That's not very precise by any
matter, and the Columbian exchange wiped out some 90% of the
population, so 'most' would at best mean 'most of whatever's
left'. And also, with the exception of HLA typing - which could
be explained by all the recently introduced Eurasian diseases -
they all use unilineal lines.

I'm wondering about those 'obvious' genetic connections. How
'obvious' are they?

He first needs to prove the cultural similarity.

He actually says he found it between layers in a coal mine?

Basically, he just invents words as needed, uses big words when
smaller ones would work just as well, and changes definitions
around. He then gives statements that are logically inconsistent
and/or inconsistent with his citations.

I think it's an accident: They have different last names, after

Of course I'll not be left out Seps - sorry you don't like like
it,
but you started it. Not only do you fly off the handle at the
slightest
criticism, you lie, cheat, misquote and cannot keep your temper.
You are unquestionably guilty of slander, libel, insulting and
threatening behaviour, and crass stupidity.

Now you will no doubt whine, and bleat with your usual paranoia,
and claim I am just as bad as you are. Perhaps I am, but I'm
afraid that
if you behave like that, that's what you can expect in return - if
you
play with fire, expect to get burned.

Since you obviously seem unfit to be trusted with a burnt out
match,
and have the intelligence, manners and self-control of a rabid
chihuahua , I'm surprised that you are so indignant Seppo!
Cheers
Martin

Wow, looks like we'll have to ask Miss Manners to come visit here a while.
Now-a-days the "you" bit is dropped in favor of how a particular behavior
makes the speaker feel.

This isn't as difficult as it seems and takes only some practice. Heck,
the entire pattern is documented in the right books in any bookstore or
library "self-help" section. Name calling is noted as an especially
counter-productive tactic.

Unless you are willing to attack an evil whereever it might appear, you

True, bad manners is a bit short of the "anti-Christ" or Hannibal Lector
but. . . . . ya just gotta take on the windmills where you find them.
Equal opportunity windmill jousting just shows a balanced and unpredjudiced
view of bad manners. . . . . . .

. . . . . . . .of course I could suppose that "bad manners" in a spoiled
9-yr old are on a slightly different scale of significance than when
exhibited by a highly educated and at least supposedly respected adult, a
"scientist" no less! That would be fair, wouldnt you say? The poor
undisciplined and immature 9-yr old just does not know how to act civilized.
But then "bad manners" could perhaps be even more obnoxious and worthy of
censure in the elder? I do hope that you are not suggesting that "special
people" get "special treatment" and the privelege to live unrestrained by
the normal standards of allowable personal behavior that must so obviously
be sorely constraining the rest of us "average joe's"? 8-)

Id really recommend dusting off the old cape though. If there were enough
"caped attitudes" out there, willing to confront "bad manners" rather than
just tacitly acquiesce, don't you think it might just become a bit more
civil and sane place?

Anyway, whatever your choices in windmills, make sure that the ones you
defend merit the defense as much as the ones you target deserve the attack.
8-)
