…you do NOT talk about the hbd cult! (~_^)
If we’re going to be a cult, we’ll need handshakes and rituals. I have some left over from DeMolay that we can modify.
We’ll need a backstory, too, and a method whereby this information came to us. Handed down by centuries of wizards is cool but it’s been done. We can tell people the reality, that the best place for the truth to hide is in plain sight, but no one will believe us.
@avi – “If we’re going to be a cult, we’ll need handshakes and rituals.”
heh. (^_^) well (in case you didn’t see it) according to some, we already are a cult…
The Truth behind the HBD cult prt 1
…so we’re definitely gonna need that backstory!
Handed down by wizards? Sounds like something an HBD-denier/heathen would say. One of the faithful would say that we accept HBD due to our DNA containing blessed sequences handed down to us by our ancestors.
@t – “One of the faithful would say that we accept HBD due to our DNA containing blessed sequences handed down to us by our ancestors.”
ftr – we don’t take anything on faith over here. hbd’ers base their thinking (or ought to!) on evidence and reasoning. faith’s got nuthin’ to do with it (although the usual human biases, of course, still apply, as they do to us all — gotta be aware of those and try to overcome them as much as is possible).
My lips are sealed.
Actually, it’s HBD deniers who are the cult, but you’ll never convince them of that. And I’m afraid that I didn’t even find the article amusing. It’s all just warmed over Adorno “Authoritarian Personality” style crap. You would think that the left could at least come up with some NEW, entertaining lies, but no – it’s always just Lewontin’s Fallacy, Adorno, and ad hominum “you’re just embittered because privilege, male, blah, blah blah…” How boring.

no, it didn’t really make much sense, did it?
i’m still waiting for a reference or two to studies showing that groups “project” their “narcissism” and/or “shame” onto other groups. i’m not holding my breath, though.
@hbddaddy-o – “My lips are sealed.”
good, good! ’cause … you know.
I guess this is what Half Sigma thought too…
I didn’t say I would stop blogging, I am just trying to divorce my new posts from the legacy of HBD posts which are considered racist by the center-left elite, and to be racist is to be the most evil person in the world. I will still blog about the same topics, I will just use more measured language and leave things for readers in the know to read between the lines.
@anatoly – “I guess this is what Half Sigma thought too….”
actually, i was just poking fun of those who think that human biodiversity is some sort of “cult.” (~_^)
i think hbd should be shouted loudly and clearly from the rooftops! or, at least, from behind pseudonyms on the innerwebs. (^_^)
According to the woman who used to blog as the Autism Diva, some of us naturally have a secret handshake. (She said this when congratulating somebody on receiving an Asperger’s dx.)
The handshake is secret, because you try not to do it when other people are around and might be looking at you. M’self, I have found that my recently-grown beard makes an excellent stim toy, as well as making me look a little bit like General Hood.
Half Sigma is very naive. They’ll still call him a racist, so he might as well speak frankly.
Most of the HBD bloggers I read don’t fit Virgle Kent’s description, but he’s got some of the commenters *nailed*.
The exception NEVER proves the rule. Thats why it is an exception. You appear as an idiot with that on your site.
@rude fred – “You appear as an idiot with that on your site.”
the word you were lookin’ for was idiom, fred. i-d-i-o-m.
Oh, HBDC, that post at watchusplaygames was HILARIOUS!
@mr. rational – “Oh, HBDC, that post at watchusplaygames was HILARIOUS!”
you mean the nexxtlevelup post? did that make ANY sense to you? to anybody?
i look forward to the next one…. (~_^)
I wrote a long response to them but it didn’t get posted. Did you require e-mail verification to comment there?
@mr. rational – “Did you require e-mail verification to comment there?”
at nexxtlevelup? no, i didn’t have to verify my email, but i did have mixed luck commenting there. some of my comments went through, but a few others didn’t, so i gave up. dunno what the story was.
“The exception NEVER proves the rule. Thats why it is an exception. You appear as an idiot with that on your site.”
An exception can’t be an exception unless there is a rule.
I’ve tried to post several comments at nextlevelup and none have appeared. Just sayin’.
There are no comments there dated since the 25th.
@mr. rational – “There are no comments there dated since the 25th.”
huh. well, maybe comments are cloooooosed. i have no stamina/patience for this sort of thing — if i can’t leave a comment after a couple of attempts, i usually just give up (and go play on reddit or something for a while instead — something worth my while, you know? (~_^) ).
somebody let me know when “Part 2” appears. i don’t wanna miss it!
There are still active reply links on the comments. I think the moderator is ignoring things.
@mr. rational – “There are still active reply links on the comments. I think the moderator is ignoring things.”
lame-o. like i said, i gave up (sometime last week) ’cause i tried to post a couple of comments and they just disappeared into the ethernet. went and did something more productive instead. (~_^)
Part 2 is up:
It was as sad as part 1 (quoted extensively from it). Worse, when I posted my lightly-editted lengthy response to part 1, it WENT IN, said it was “awaiting moderation”… then “awaiting moderation” went away… then the whole thing disappeared! They are censoring contrary points of view.
Not worth anyone’s time. You should create a thread here, where they can be properly mocked.
OMG! The most impressive aspect of this post to me is the fact you know who the Thrill Kill Kult is! Just saw them in October. There were like 50 people there, it was kinda sad actually.
