The Debate Challenge

I support the challenge.

Why don’t any of the great leaders of the Alt Right, Alt Wrong, etc. take up The Movement Critic on his debate challenge?  That would at least be an insightful contrast of viewpoints, as opposed to Beavis-and-Butthead sniggering or pompous “metapolitical” rambling.

As more evidence (as if you needed it) for the intellectual and moral vacuity of Der Movement, Inc. read this.  
Jorjani likes to speak elliptically, making wide and often demonstrably false academic claims. Some are absurd, like his belief that the pyramids in the lost city of Atlantis were built through collective psychokinesis…
If I had to pick one fundamental defining element of Der Movement, it would be bad judgment, which encompasses and explains all of the varied manifestations of “movement” problems.  If it wasn’t enough of a red flag that a person is a half-Iranian “Indo-Aryan” fetishist who identifies with his Iranian half, then promoting bizarre esoteric fantasies and genuine (as opposed to leftist designated) pseudoscience should have been the clincher.  Then again, remember that Der Movement accepts, with nary a moment of uncertainty, the “work” of Richard “make the data fit the hypothesis” Lynn, Phil “French Army Surgeon” Rushton and the Joe Pesci look-a-like Artie “Ancient Egypt was a Nordic Desert Empire” Kemp, so the support for Jorjani’s rambling is not surprising at all.
He needed to find a publisher for his book “Prometheus and Atlas,” so he Googled the term “archeofuturist,” which he thought was an original phrase that described his work. He found that an Arktos-published writer had beat him to the term, but he also realized that Arktos might be interested in publishing his book — and that’s what happened. The book was well-received in extremist circles. A review on the website of the white nationalist publishing house Counter Currents compares it to “Moby Dick,” and anoints Jorjani as the movement’s “‘pagan harpooner’ folded in the flag of Ahab.”
Jorjani’s work compared to Moby Dick?  Well, you can tear out pages from Prometheus and Atlas to use as bookmarks when you read Moby Dick, but the connection doesn’t extend past that, I fear.  Jorjani as a “pagan harpooner?” – yes, I guess it would be this one, no?

Der Movement needs people with hard science backgrounds (biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, mathematics) to do quality control on the flotsam and jetsam that spews forth from retarded “movement” discourse. And, no, there is no “scientific conspiracy” to “hide the truth” about “the spectral.” There is instead a justifiable contempt toward the type of solipsism that exists in “movement” circles – “The Lathe of Heaven Syndrome” – in which people think things are true simply because they believe that they are true.

Real problems with science are discussed here.

Sweaty fantasies about “Atlantis” make the situation worse, not better.  We need to take the high ground, not fester in the fever swamps of “movement” lunacy.
