Sic et Non Is Dead

Post by Everybody Wang Chung »

Occasionally I like to visit Sic et Non and read DCP’s plagiarized blog posts about NDE’s, the Discovery Institute, dowsing, and the evils of Atheism and science.

The comments were pure gold with Midgley, DCP and kiwi57 ganging up on anyone who dared disagree with DCP’s plagiarized blog posts.

I’ve noticed on my last few visits that there are no longer any dissenting comments. It looks like DCP has banned so many people, that he’s created a dead echo chamber.

With the exception of a rare appearance by Gemli, there are only a few hardcore DCP loyalist who comment anymore.

Rest In Peace, Sic et Non.

God needs the devil... banish him and no one pays attention to God. Someday perhaps Peterson will actually begin to grasp the scriptures he believes in, and their meaning, and how to live.

I wonder if they realize that gemli is the one making the place interesting.

The posters need more than the word "ditto" to contend with Gemli. The place is at its peak when Dr. Midgley gives some jumbled response and then requests that Dr. Peterson give Gemli the boot.

That would give them vastly more credit than they deserve. Like I say, God needs the devil, to banish him is to lose the Celestial Kingdom.

Well to be frank, we really don't have any interesting faithful dissenting voices here either.
What is happening are these indirect conversations between here and Sic et Non.
It makes both places less interesting.

Sadly true. The immovable object of personal belief meets the irresistible force of impersonal logic.

Doesn't mix well.

There also used to be a bit of back and forth between the blog and here. That has disappeared in the last few months.

First-time poster here. I left the church over seven years ago. I like to see what DCP posts every once in a while. I have gone the rounds with Kiwi, the Midge, and DCP. They certainly have a playbook that is followed. However, I have noticed his blog has around 15 posters that post. I agree; the dialogue is much more enjoyable with Gemli et al. It has become quite dull over there lately.

Virtually everyone here has been banned because DP is a fussy guy.
