Tim Ball has a quasi-incoherent piece over at WUWT (I know, I know, but it was a grey Sunday afternoon) explaining why the nutters lost the dogma hearing. I’m a bit surprised that he’s prepared to admit they lost, but I was more amused by his excuses; and perhaps the piece is more an excuse to write about himself than anything else. Anyway, as he puts it:
In a debate between a scientist and anyone else the scientist inevitably loses because it becomes about emotions, especially the exploitation of fear
He’s forgotten that a moment earlier he wrote:
Elizabeth May, leader of the Green Party in Canada… agreed to a debate with me… I know I won the debate
I think we can be fairly sure that EM isn’t a scientist. Therefore, following TB’s own logic we can clearly see that he can’t be a scientist, otherwise he’d have lost.
