[edit] Moved from Talk:Scopie's Law

That is a Great Site!!! Only three clicks and I was reading:

  • I know of a case where a reptilian had sexually assaulted a female milab and thus activated the kundalini energy of the woman. No sooner had the reptilian left than the military instantaneously brought the woman via some hi-tech means, to their underground installation. The military controllers then tasked the female milab with an astral op. Responding to the suggestions and encouragement of her controllers, the milab (perhaps with the help of the aforementioned technology) sent her astral body to the Persian Gulf region to observe several people who had gathered together at a private meeting. She then verbally reported her perceptions to her controllers....... In this incident the military had either colluded with the reptilian or became aware of the reptilian’s appearance in the woman’s bedroom. The military has sensors that indicate when an electromagnetic disturbance or event has occurred that is indicative of a reptilian manifestation.

Got to get some more of this.--Bobbing up 13:06, 10 July 2008 (EDT)

Yah, great stuff. It's so bad it's awesome. Star of David.png Radioactive Misanthrope 13:58, 10 July 2008 (EDT)
I self servingly coined Pal's Law (Once a conspiracy is invoked, the argument is over, and the denialist has lost) but i have a feeling it exists in one of these other laws somewhere..-- Asclepius staff.png-PalMD --Did that sound a little harsh? 23:59, 15 July 2008 (EDT)
I prefer Lewis Carrol's Jabberwocky. Scopie's Law may have been written by a Random Text Generator.

What is a milab?

Does using Whale.co as 'a negative example' ('because it is there the statement must be tosh' etc) invoke Scopie's Law? 171.33.222.26 (talk) 15:54, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

You know what's interesting? This website gets mentioned (briefly) in the book "Your Baby's Best Shot" on page 133. This includes the statement that Scudamore is a pig farmer. Jinx (talk) 18:45, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

[edit] Move

It doesn't make a lot of sense to have an article about the law, which could never run more than a few sentences on its own anyway, and then have a subsection about the site it describes, so I went ahead and switched them. Wehpudicabok (talk) 09:18, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

[edit] Pig farmer

Where's a reference for Scudamore being a pig farmer?

(Just because I'd like it to be true doesn't mean it is ... otherwise this would just be a pale imitation of whale.to ;-))

[edit] Ancient Origins

Is anyone familiar with www.ancient-origins.net? Where would it fall with regards to this list? Someone shared an article from that site with me, and the article read fine, but the ads, images, motto, and other things just seem off.

After reading their about page, I can't decide if they're unconvinced, open minded skeptics, or if they're very self-aware woo peddlers. Anyone on this site in the know? --161.130.166.213 (talk) 05:29, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Genetic Fallacy

Doesn't Scopies law commit this? You say not to use documentaries as evidence of anything. — Unsigned, by: 67.5.226.10 / talk / contribs 22:43, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

Scopie's law is not intended to be a proper logical argument. It's satire. Frederick♠♣♥♦ 00:43, 29 March 2015 (UTC)
Should we have some sort of disclaimer for inductive versus deductive rules? That is, things like Scopie's Law are inductive; the source is known for bullshit, so the argument is almost certainly bullshit, and since we have limited resources/time, ignore the stuff that is obviously bullshit even if there is that 1 in a billion chance it's not.

Judging by these articles, is Daily beast a good source? — Unsigned, by: 71.222.50.148 / talk / contribs 07:02, 27 March 2015‎ (UTC)
