Sceptic, stop deflecting.the sceptic said:Martin. Stop vortexing.
I'm on record as saying it's a stupid thread title, simply because it entirely presupposes there is a 'bandwagon' to jump on.This thread is about whether Walsh is on the skys bandwagon or not.
What do you think Martin? Are you in the "I dont know" camp on this one as well?
As for an 'i don't know' camp, this' is the problem with most of the sh*t in this place. We don't know, none of us. We like to think we do, pretend we do, and quite often become right ****holes when we are confronted with the reality of it.
From the outside it seems fairly clear to me - Walsh believes in them. He may be wrong, he may be right, but he's admitted as much in his Times article. And believing in them, he's happy to work with them.
Which is why I found Shane and Leslie's 'sick' moment utterly silly. Not offensive, just...silly.
How dare Walsh think differently to them! How dare he treat them on the basis of what he believes, as opposed to what they do!
It happens in here all the time too - condemning him, or others, for not acting as if the beliefs of various clinicians are proven truth; making assumptions on motive that simply ignore the difference.
I'm happy to wait and read the books, both of them, first. God forbid i start with facts, and work to a conclusion rather than the other way round.
