Now that this is in the pit.
Der Trihs isn’t a phsyicist. He has no actual knoeledge of physics whatsoever, but he uses a few buzzwords that he picked up to try to bluff his way through an argument. When he gets cale don it he skulks away and hides.
My favourite example was in this thread, where he stated that the afterlife violated the "laws of electromagnetism ". Once I listed the actual laws of electromagnetism and asked him to tell us which ne an afterlife violated, he refused to post in the thread again.
That sort of behaviour is typical. he makes ridiculous absolutist statements on topics which he doesn’t understand,a nd as soon as he is challenged to support the ignorant tripe that he has posted, he slinks away an hides.
But just in case you think Der Trihs is only full of a shit when it comes to science, don’t be misled. In this thread he claimed that Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh had “support right up to the Congressional level” from the Republican party when he detonated a bomb that killed 180 people, including 15 children.
No, you didn’t misread that. Der Trihs said that Timothy McVeigh’s bombing was supported by US Congressman.
And once again, as soon as he was called on the ignorant crap that he was posting, he slunk away and never posted in the thread again. That behaviour is universal for him. So just use that to your advantage. He will make ridiculous untrue statements in any thread he participates in. So wait for him to do so, then post demands for evidence. He will leave the thread and never come back, like the cowardly little weasel that he is.
Der Trihs is an embarrassment to the intelligent atheist and Liberals on this board. They have pretty much disowned him. His frothing-at-the-mouth irrational bigotry and ignorant claptrap have gotten too much even for the people whose side he is on.
I will repeat the advice I got in that thread: "All that said, I’m sure I’m not alone in basically ignoring Der Trihs. The content-to-inflammatory-rhetoric ratio is just too low.
