for being an anti-vaxxer--Arisboch ☞✍☜☞✉☜ ∈)☼(∋ 13:32, 19 October 2015 (UTC)

Every parent of a vaccine-injured child was once pro-vaccines. In case you were wondering where the "anti-vaccination" non-movement was coming from. (talk) 13:47, 19 October 2015 (UTC)
Every parent of a vaccine-injured child was once pro-vaccines.- [citation needed] Irrelevant.
And even if it were so, that would be still a rather lame appeal to emotion.--Arisboch ☞✍☜☞✉☜ ∈)☼(∋ 13:49, 19 October 2015 (UTC)
If injuries are "emotions", then disaeses are "emotions" too and vaccines prevent "emotional outbreakss". Makes sense. (talk) 13:56, 19 October 2015 (UTC)
citation needed- Arisboch. Common sense needed instead. If the parents had been anti-vaccines the child wouldn't have been vaccinated. Duh! (talk) 14:04, 19 October 2015 (UTC)

So let me get this straight[edit]

Based on your lovely contributions to various talk pages, my impression is that your current views (non-exhaustively) include you being;

  • An anti-vaxxer
  • An anti-feminist
  • A raw foodist
  • A global warming denialist
  • An alternative medicine supporter
  • Anti-GMO
  • From Holland (though I won't hold that against you).

If so, you are warmly invited to help yourself to our article on crank magnetism, as it seems likely that that article is descriptive of you personally. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 20:35, 12 April 2016 (UTC)

You insulting mah country mate? :P (FYI I'd recommend you don't refer to the country as "Holland" too much, some people can get rather upset about that (I used to be one but Leiden lies in the province of South Holland so I can't complain anymore))--JorisEnter (talk) 20:49, 12 April 2016 (UTC)
Nationalism - the one woo power strong enough to cause even the ever-sane Joris to step in to defend a crank from the critical onslaught of a nasty foreigner like me, Percy! (And wth, I just said I wouldn't hold that against him!) Reverend Black Percy (talk) 21:03, 12 April 2016 (UTC)
Well I don't defend people just because they're Dutch. We have some rather stupid people here as well.--JorisEnter (talk) 14:10, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
Haha, I know buddy... And don't forget to add Patric Geryl to that list (the man behind the opening quote on our 2012 apocalypse article - press the links!). Reverend Black Percy (talk) 14:32, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
Dear God, what a bunch of nonsense the guy has written. I might have a look at my local bookstore (luckily, Leiden has at least ten of those on about one square kilometre) - there's usually a good deal of books that are complete crap. Also note that Geryl is in fact Belgian, not Dutch - that said, Belgium is basically the rebellious southern part of the country so in a sense you're right.--JorisEnter (talk) 14:47, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
Whoops, my bad! Thanks for letting me eel out of it with the whole southern country defense there, though. ^^ Geryl gets interviewed in an episode of Penn & Teller: Bullshit - it's hilarious. It's S07E04 - "The Apocalypse". Reverend Black Percy (talk) 14:59, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
Belgian sceptic society SKEPP has also awarded Geryl the "Skeptical Well", their prize for the most unsceptical person of the year. The history of his (Dutch) Wikipedia page also shows a good deal of fanboyism.--JorisEnter (talk) 15:08, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
It's pretty amazing when someone believes in nonsense over reality. Sounds out of touch enough to have it's own homeopathic ER (YouTube - Mitchell and Webb Look). I think Belgium couldn't be worse than Wales though. -EmeraldCityWanderer (talk) 15:10, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
Human brains are pattern recognizing survival machines. Pattern recognition sans skepticism is magical thinking, which has been the overwhelming dominant source of ideas in human history. ikanreed You probably didn't deserve that 15:20, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
