Phil Plait : Don't be a Dick
    #463352 - 08/19/10 02:00 AM (6 years, 3 months ago)

Basically Phil telling skeptics to stop being collective douches:

<<<About a month ago now, Phil Plait (the Bad Astronomer) gave a talk at The Amaz!ng Meeting 8 that stirred quite a reaction among some folks in the skeptical movement, both positive and negative. I had my own strong reaction, and have enjoyed the self-criticism that this talk fostered. I have had many conversations about it since with skeptics holding varied and contrasting views about the best approaches to adopt when working to advance skepticism and critical thinking in our world.

We're making the video available online so that more people may take part in the conversation and because some of the criticism of the talk came from people who hadn't yet seen it.>>>

I actually had a dream about where the "movement"is. It's weird that you posted this today, I've never heard someone talk about "the movement" at all. I use "the movement" for lack of a better word. I notice it in court cases, thread topics, comedian stand-ups, etc. But I never really thought of it as an organised group. Very fucking interesting.


I just watched and I'm going to watch it again in another couple of hours to take notes and tell you what I think!


--------------------
Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

I just finished watching it. He's got a good point, but on the other hand, I'm not ready to stop being a dick :smirk:
