Hi Vox.

Well, it looks like Vox Day is once again sending me a bunch of new visitors. I’m afraid the poor fellow hasn’t quite forgiven me for my critique of his sad little book. He has become wise enough not to try any specific refutations of my rebuttals, at least. Stick to the vague, disparaging dismissals, that’s the safest thing.

Eh, Vox?

    Keep up the good work DD.

    On a related note, did CL ever get back with his description of some testable artifact of his god?

    Yes, thank you for once again reminding us all of Vox’s absurd existence. After seeing this post, I spent about an half-hour browsing his blog for the first time in a long while. I sometimes forget about that strange alternate universe, where goal posts slide around seemingly of their own power, burdens of proof pop in and out of existence like particles in a quantum foam, and concepts like “logic”, “evidence”, and “intelligence” are hurled around furiously, but have no consistent meaning.

    I went over to Triablogue like a month ago just to see what all the fuss was about. That VD place seems like the same little bizarre world.

    Like CS Lewis, VD should be honored you have troubled yourself so much with an analysis of his writing. Deep down, I imagine he’s grateful. And that feeling seems to somehow make him angry. Ah, well, round and round we all go.

    Just about sums it up.

    Yeah, Vox Day avoids responding when he knows he is outclassed, says he is smarter than everyone, and just declares victory. Then airhead Spacebunny posts one liners in the comments as though she actually has something to say.

    What’s kind of ironic is that, in the post itself, Vox more or less admits that he sticks to ad hominem reasoning—he gives the person “one shot,” and then he gives up trying address the actual issues. I think that explains a lot about the weird and wacky world of VD-Land: he never actually confronts the issues themselves, he merely seeks to exploit some straw-man version of his critics’ arguments in order to score some kind of self-assessed point.

    The upside, of course, is that this approach ends up leaving his critics with the last word on any specific topic. And that suits me just fine. ;)
