Reasonablefaith.org scramble to hide the evidence!

January 26, 2012

  Well initially I was willing to give William Lane Craig the benefit of the doubt, but I have to admit, the charity of that position is evaporating faster than dew in the desert!

  So a thread was started on the ‘Reasonable Faith’ forum (forum of William Lane Craigs website).

  In this drcraigvideos was making posts suggesting that he was fully legally endorsed by William Lane Craig to file these DMCAs.

  Now up till this point, I was happy to believe that, “well these ‘reasonable faith’ people, they’re not crazy creationists, they must be able to see the writing on the wall here”.  So, after one of the admins  (Philos, who lists his profession as ‘In academia’ (wlc?)) had locked the thread earlier this evening, I wrote him a personal message telling him of the shit that they were in.  How drcraigvideos claim to be legally acting on William Lane Craigs behalf made him legally culpable, and that drcraigvideos actions had a ring of truth about them given that:

1) drcraigvideos blog is directly linked on the reasonablefaith website.

http://www.reasonablefaith.org/site/PageServer?pagename=links

2) drcraigvideos videos are directly linked to the reasonablefaith website.  Damn, you only have to click the links in the scrolling banner to find this out!

  I also gave him some brief background on why what drcraigvideos was doing was illegal, and why it was in their favor to take action on this themselves.  Lets be real, it is at this point unthinkable given the number of emails reasonablefaith must have received that they are not aware of the situation (I also left them a voice message and asked this admin, Philos, to pass on this message to WLC).  If William Lane Craig chooses to do nothing while someone acting in his name, and claiming with his permission is filing bogus DMCA claims against WLC critics, it is VERY challenging to find an academically charitable way to interpret William Lane Craigs behavior.

  So I come back an hour or so later, and what do I find?

1) I’ve been banned.  Cute! Being banned without a SINGLE post!

2) the ENTIRE thread of ‘Thunderf00t DMCAed in William Lane Craigs name’ has been deleted.

Can’t really screen cap something that’s not there, but look for this post yourself!


  I blame myself.  I had assumed that when dealing with ‘Professional Academic Philosophers’ that you might get some integrity.  Instead all I’ve seen is reasonablefaith using EXACTLY and VERBATIM the methods used by PCS those many moons ago.  Dig a hole, then try to delete everything incriminating as soon as possible, then claim it never happened.  Shit, I’ve not seem someone scramble to delete the damning data this quickly since a creationist first donned Joker make-up! Oh yes WLC, I have EVERYTHING recorded 🙂

Amenakin, Censorin’ For Islam

October 2, 2011

     I’ve got a lot of issues with organized religions that use socially coercive methods in a ‘market dominance’ type situation to prevent people from leaving the religion. Islam is WAY out there in terms of the levels they are willing to go to enforce conformity, up to and including executing people. I mean not even the Scientologists or Mormons are that crazy. Can you imagine it if Scientology decrees that anyone who leaves the ‘Church’ shall be executed?’

     Islam basically wrote the rule book on socially coercive techniques to be used in ‘market dominance’ type situations. The most obvious one being praying 5 times day. The bell rings, and you will stand out if you don’t get on your knees and pray. Same with the head-wear for women, and the beard thing for men. Naturally when you look at it in terms of what the hell would an all powerful ‘God’ want with any of these things, its bloody silly:- WAY beyond comically ridiculous. However this seems to be a thought that is absent, presumed missing in many Muslim heads. Indeed there are even girls out there such as Amenakin who actively embraces such techniques, and in doing so she makes it that much harder for other women in her community to escape the oppression of women in Islam that is arguable the worst in the modern age.

     However that’s not my prime reason for making this video. This girl (Amenakin) has been abusing the DMCA, and I’m not going to stand by and allow the precedent to be set that some Islamic girl, offended by potholer54 calling bullshit on her pseudo science ramblings, should use the DMCA as a way of censoring for Allah.
