A psychologist finally diagnoses Jay Cosmo

Obsessive Debunking Disorder (ODD)?

Are Hardcore Skeptics and Debunkers Actually Brain Deficient? Their Own Beloved 'Hard Science' Might Well Suggest Many Are.



We have all encountered them. The men and women of 'reason'. The self-appointed guardians and vanguards of materialist dogma along with their absolute faith and belief in official government and corporate press releases. The debunker, the hardcore skeptic—how they love to compulsively ridicule and mock all they deem 'pseudoscience' and 'conspiracy theory'—while also declaring anyone who thinks outside the box or questions the prevailing orthodoxy, a "moron" and a "tard". Matters not how solid the evidence you present them with is, nor how flimsy their own state-sanctioned 'hard science' which they smugly offer up as their rebuttal; they are driven by a messianic compulsion to root out unscientific 'idiots' with all the zeal and fanaticism similar to that of a Dominican or Jesuit charging through southern France in the twelfth century seeking out 'heretics' for the burning. Irony does not even come into their myopic worldview—unless of course a government, corporate or university press office states this. Then it becomes an undisputed fact. Thanks to the likes of Richard Dawkins and Christoper Hitchens, these Internet-bound warriors of rationality see 'Creationists' and 'hidden Christians' around every corner and seek to root them out and expose them as part and parcel of their own peculiar secular witch hunt mentality.

The reality is that apart from their own kind—other self-proclaimed non-'idiots'—most people find such arrogant and obnoxious debunkers and hardcore skeptics to be strangely angry and boorish, and often confrontational to the point of hysterical. So many of them seem to lack basic social and behavioural skills when 'debating' with their 'kook' of choice. Their absolutism can be staggering at times. Yet, despite all this, they have somehow come to consider themselves 'cool' and even 'sexy' within the last decade. This is simply a lack of critical thinking on their behalf; a distorted worldview where only they are right and everyone else is an idiot.

Nice try. Well, kind of.

I think most people would think of "debunking" as dealing in facts (or at least using verified evidence) to address FALSE assertions. It's interesting that you and other kooks find that to be objectionable.

Ah. So a conspiracy theorist wrote an article about how he hates to be repeatedly proven wrong. Good for him.

I especially like the part where he claims that fact-driven debunkers lack critical thinking. The irony is overpowering.

First off, Jay Cosmo has a terrible case of ODD. Everyone agrees there.


The question becomes: "is his ODD necessarily a bad thing?" It's crucial to understand that Cosmo gets all his info from *official* sources particularly government documents. How can he be so certain they are correct? He can't. And that paradox creates the authors complaint about ODDers.

I may have ODD. I don't think I had it before I started posting in DC. Something must have triggered it.

The part you bolded isn't true. Depends what the issue is. But yeah, I'm going to go with AP and the major news networks, even Fox, over breitbart and weaselzippers.com 99% of the time.

It's really your certitude about every issue. I *think* evolution and global warming could be true but you are 110% certain of it and think deniers are just fools. Also you are certain about religion and worse, certain you have expertise to render other opinions on it incorrect. Despite having zero credentials to do so.

I don't think I display any more certitude than anyone else, although I'm not certain about that.

I am certain about evolution though, and deniers are fools.
I usually don't even comment much on global warming unless it is very general stuff. People come on here with all this data and chemistry and it looks like bullshit, but it always looks like too much of a hassle to get into. Plus, Austin then chimes in with his "data" and he can get really mean sometimes, and I just don't care for the name-calling.

You know how HCF and pete always post stuff and start threads on stuff that is false and easily proven wrong? They're not embarassed by that, but I would be. If I make an assertion about something, I'm pretty sure I'm right or can back it up. You want to call me on something, go ahead.

Cosmo's right. There are an embarrassing amount of threads started on this board which are based on faulty, flawed, or outright false information, and Cosmo is the most likely here to tear them apart. He's the most obvious target for the predictable and anti-intellectual return volley, so cue the crackpot blogger article. Right on time.

No Aries, he isn't right. He makes questionable claims too but hates being challenged. A debunker never likes being debunked. Also showing certitude about things like religion. When I asked him to defend some of those points, Mr ODD lashed out and responded with "gay basher!" as his only answer. Exactly what the author describes as secular witch hunt.

I don't know what issue you are talking about but I doubt I would have responded with 'gay basher' unless it was relevant (although you are one). So, you're lying about that. LINK?
