The fall of the academy

How very embarrassing! The bitter little gamma that I repeatedly corrected back in 2016 concerning his inability to correctly grasp Aristotelian rhetoric turns out to be a philosophy professor. That certainly explains why "he seems to have a basic knowledge of the technical aspects without understanding their basic purpose or how they can be utilized."
Long-time Mad Genius Club readers are familiar with Camestros — often dubbed Cameltoe, by those who’ve dickered with the man in the comments sections of various libertarian and conservative SF/F author blogs — mainly for his outsized ego, and a penchant for assuming he is several orders of magnitude more intelligent than not only the host(s) of the blogs he trolls, but also the comment participants to boot.

Put simply, Felapton is the proverbial pouting basement genius — because the universe is not sufficiently moved by his Brobdingnagian intellect.

Small wonder, then, that Camestros Felapton is actually Toby Meadows, a philosophy-slash-humanities PhD presently employed at the University of Queensland, Australia. Also, Toby Meadows is the spouse of Australian SF/F gadfly and left-wing political activist Foz Meadows.
Foz Meadows is the woman who falsely accused me of being a National Socialist at Black Gate and then at Amazing Stories. Quite the pair of midwits, they are.

Oh dear. In addition to violating Facebook's name policy, Camestros appears to have violated his university's code of conduct. "Staff must not engage in conduct that amounts to or may be perceived as harassment." He has certainly engaged in conduct that amounts to harassment with regards to me. Just look up his many, many references to "Vox Day" on either his blog or File 770. There are hundreds.

Camestros claims he is not Toby Meadows. Unfortunately, he lies far too often to simply take his word for it. Fortunately, there is an easy way to determine whether he is or not, which is to let the university investigate the truth of the matter.

Vox, do you have IPs? If he's commented in a few places, some basic IP detective work can probably correlate the identities.

In real world analysis, even highly trained intelligence officers can't keep their online fake identities compartmentalized for more than a few weeks maybe a few months a time. All it takes is a slip and it will poison the identity.

It seems like the genderqueer movement, like the transsexual movement, lends itself to tyrants. These people often set themselves up as the sole authority on gender, as you come in contact with them. And if you're a hetero especially, you have no say in the matter. Or else you'll be dealing with the entire palette of SJW wrath and PC corrective measures.

The genderqueers can be even worse than the transsexuals, because at least the trannies _generally_ operate within gender role norms, they just want to switch them up. The genderqueers are much more slippery, the term itself can mean vastly different things from one moment to the next. One moment it can be rejecting both genders and establishing a new one, the next moment it can be embracing both genders and combining elements of both into one. They make it up as they go along -- with sole authority, of course.

As an additional data point to Mouse Utopia, consider that human evolution/eugenics/breeding is dominated by sexual selection. This means that a smaller pool of choices would exacerbate the mouse utopia effect.

Ironically enough, in terms of family lines, the problem could very well be inadequate offspring, preventing sexual selection, and reducing genetic returns on cooperative breeding.

Where once the best of the family would marry the best of another family, and both families contribute to supporting the breeding efforts proportional to the returns, now everyone must marry and everyone must breed, because with 2-3 children, any non-breeder destroys the line.

So there's no spinster aunts anymore, no uncle that joined the Church or never got around to children; ie; nobody gets excluded from the available pool in any given family tree; and exclusion in the hunt for a mate is the human selection mechanism.

@12-You don't know what "genderqueer" means because it doesn't really mean anything, except that they're unconventional as regards "gender." Which could apply to an infinite number of ridiculous claims from the confused/deranged and mere poseurs alike.

They like it that way, because it swells their ranks. Or what they claim as their ranks anyway. The "queer" adjective can be applied to any category of perversion, because all it really means is abnormal. Here are some of the many ways to be abnormal regarding gender:

-identifying as the opposite sex
-identifying as having no sex
-identifying as your own sex, but adopting the role of the opposite sex
-identifying as being born to play the role of the opposite sex, but believing you actually were born to be your own sex
-identifying as being mostly the opposite sex, but a fraction of your genetic sex
-identifying as being mostly your own sex, but a fraction of the other sex
-identifying as a third (or fourth or fifth, and so on) as yet undefined sex
-if you're a Red Indian, identifying as having more than one variety of sex spirit inside you
-identifying as something, something, blah, blah sex/gender

The possible permutations are as endless as the human capacity for "look at me! Aren't I special/pitiable?"

"What exactly would math philosophers do, aside from math? "

Foundations of math. Looking into paradoxes, of which there are many. Looking into proof theory and how proofs are constructed (e.g. Lakatos). There's a ton of interesting stuff there, actually. You can thank philosophers of math for first order predicate calculus, among other inventions. Carnap contributed greatly to the theory of statistics, for instance.

I'm sure there are left wing philosophers of math doing their usual atrocity nonsense (e.g., numbers are white oppression).

A couple observations regarding University of Queensland.
1) I was at a conference once giving a talk to a local TV station and I was seated next to a woman (a Prof of Psychology from said University) who proceeded to give me some shit prior to the interview regarding my topic. I really couldn't believe it. Just out of the blue starts giving me shit. I had worked at a top 10 University, while she worked at a no-name University somewhere in AU. Anyway, I politely asked what she would talk about. She snobbishly said "Neuroplasticity". I replied: Oh, you'll be speaking about Eric Kandel's work then? She said: Who's that? I replied: "Oh, he was only awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine for Neuroplasticity. And you're faker". A few jaws dropped around me. The blood ran out of her face. One guy who knew me laughed out loud. About 5 minutes later the interviewer came back and started with me. It was fun :)
2. I looked into the University of Queensland and discovered the guy who started the 'Brain Institute" actually pretended he discovered adult neurogenesis - so they built him this building. In reality he's done nothing of the sort, and his research appears to be of little significance. Which isn't surprising, Australian of the Year 2017 took credit for research done in Europe and pretended to cure acute spinal cord injury by injected God only know what sort of cells into unsuspecting patients spines (that produced no significant change in mobility - hence his need to plagiarize the work of a European researcher).

I can only imagine how much tax payer's money Australian University's swindle out of them. The entire higher education and "research" sector there is a shit-show (sadly).

What I find is an easy way to rapidly and accurately determine someone's education level in most cases is to follow these rules:

1) A 4-year (or higher) college degree doesn't count if it didn't require Calculus. (E.g., mentally delete all B.A.s from resumes/CVs.)

2) Degrees of any level awarded in the Third World don't count at all.

3) Degrees awarded in the Second World above the B.S. level don't count at all.

4) Degrees awarded by Colleges of Education or Gender/Ethnic/Homosexual Studies departments should be considered of negative value, to each cancel out one legitimate degree. For example, someone who graduated from high school, then bought a B.A. in Advanced Feminist Grievance Studies, should be considered at the education level of having permanently dropped out of school in 10th grade, and likely never performed any real work since then.

RE: and the other commenter heard a comment from a disgruntled Australian ratting out his country's educational system, so that prove the quality of education here.

Actually, good evidence in support of an argument that Australian higher education is quantitatively of lower quality is plentiful. As an example, the Australian undergraduate program is 3 years (often of 12 week semesters [I've even heard some talk of Australians going to 3 years of two 10 week semesters]) whereas the American program is 4 years (often of 16 week semesters). Further, many Universities in Australia generally have less wet-lab and material support during those 12 weeks (compared with Americans State universities). Finally, you could also measure how much money each nation puts into State run Universities as well as how much of that is used to support Undergraduates education as opposed to that old trick where a University constructs a 'research institute' nearby and diverts more tuition into supporting this low quality paper-mill in order to game the rankings system. A final measure, would be how many companies are actually founded by University graduates. Across all measures, I think you'll find Australian higher education to be a waste of time and resources. Thank god for State mandated licencing schemes huh? Gosh, if it wasn't for that, what's a University to do? ;)

@73, My IQ is juuuust fine, thanks for asking. I do have ADD though, which makes it hard to keep organized past second year. As a result I have done first year:
science- applied science that is, ie, lab and field work
design
economics
accounting
as well as having a better-than-first-year English/History major grasp of both English and History;
and 15 years of business.

Meng pretty much has it nailed, although the regional universities do run very good vocational degrees. The main problem is that those degrees are horribly organized and run, and should be straight-line 2-year vocational courses at half the cost.

"dear. In addition to violating Facebook's name policy, Camestros appears to have violated his university's code of conduct. "Staff must not engage in conduct that amounts to or may be perceived as harassment." He has certainly engaged in conduct that amounts to harassment with regards to me. Just look up his many, many references to "Vox Day" on either his blog or File 770. There are hundreds." can you prove it's harrassment? He just debunks you. https://camestrosfelapton.wordpress.com/2016/07/12/voxday-gets-it-wrong-on-iq-again/
And you banned him.

"Oh dear. In addition to violating Facebook's name policy, Camestros appears to have violated his university's code of conduct. "Staff must not engage in conduct that amounts to or may be perceived as harassment." He has certainly engaged in conduct that amounts to harassment with regards to me. Just look up his many, many references to "Vox Day" on either his blog or File 770. There are hundreds." so he shows you are wrong?
