Australian Skeptic critiques Winston Wu and SCEPCOP

Check out this Aussie Skeptic's critique of me after he saw my posts in the Australian Skeptics Facebook Group. ... ordinaire/
“Devotion to the truth is the hallmark of morality; there is no greater, nobler, more heroic form of devotion than the act of a man who assumes the responsibility of thinking.” - Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

No worries.
It really needed to be shown that it’s not a matter of semantics, Winston.
You can’t scientifically argue a fact from personal experience and poorly controlled studies, and its folly to believe you can.
You have chosen to accept a belief on poor evidence, and when this point has been raised, you have re-actively rejected it. You are not being skeptical of your beliefs. You are a pseudo-skeptic, and I have laid out why. While whether you accept it or not is up to you, the facts remains the facts.

Your approach to performing science is pseudo-scientific; you have fallen for your own con.


You can Argue a fact with reason and logic from personal experience however, not sure how someone would argue a fact "scientifically", that sounds like a preset belief structure to me and reeks of bunk semantics. Great masters such as vernon howard and guy finley display perfect examples of arguement from logic and reason. If one is going to argue with semantics then be willing to use the correct semantics for the sentence structure yourself.
my 2 cents

The 'critique' didn't say a whole lot of substance. Some fair points around epistemology, but that's about it. Not a lot in it, really...
