Notice of Fringe Theories Noticeboard discussion[edit]

Hello, Occurring. This message is being sent to inform you that a discussion is taking place at Wikipedia:Fringe theories/Noticeboard regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. The thread is located here. Thank you. LuckyLouie (talk) 22:12, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

The above hyperlink labeled here misdirects, since the webpage is now archived. As one can see, the whole case against was vague, terse accusations that I carefully rebutted, but that the accusers themselves did not follow up on. — Occurring (talk) 21:11, 13 June 2017 (UTC)

3RR warning[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at James H. Fetzer‎ shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Whether or not your edits are constructive, you've repeatedly reinserted the same controversial statements and deleted the same uncontroversial statements. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 18:31, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

Sincerely and respectfully, I ask that you specify which controversial statements I allegedly repeatedly reinserted as well as which uncontroversial statements I allegedly repeatedly deleted. If the accusation is accurate, it must be with reference to specific statements. Indeed, your accusation arrives with categorical certainty. I ask because I suspect that you are confused, and that perhaps I am not guilty of what you allege — Occurring (talk) 20:45, 27 October 2013 (UTC)

James H. Fetzer[edit]

James H. Fetzer (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views)

Do you have any possible conflict of interest with the subject of that article?

jps (talk) 02:28, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for asking respectfully. I have absolutely none. As I explained elsewhere, my main interests are theoretical science and philosophy of science. I am just disgusted by the Fetzer article being the victim, all over conspiracy theories, of Fetzer followers versus Fetzer opponents and vice versa. I probably have the very least conflict of sympathy, at least. Occurring (talk) 02:34, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

I wonder if Fetzer is notable for his mainstream achievements. This is rather hard for me to judge. The article could, perhaps, be deleted unless we somehow think he qualifies for a WP:FRINGEBLP. I would help you form an appropriate nomination if you think his biography should be removed. jps (talk) 03:26, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

How can anyone "wonder if Fetzer is notable for his mainstream achievements"? I have published 29 books on computer science, artificial intelligence, cognitive science and evolution and morality beyond my work in the philosophy of science, where I have clarified and illuminated the nature of laws, the structure of explanations, the principle of inference to the best explanation and the contributions of Carl G. Hempel with two books from Oxford, one a new collection of Hempel's papers, the other a collection of new studies of Hempel's work. My first paper in computer science on program verification ignited an international controversy that reverberates to this day. I received the Medal of the University of Helsinki for my work in the philosophy of science and was selected to be a Distinguished McKnight University Professor by the University of Minnesota, where to this date (to the best of my knowledge) I am the only faculty member not teaching on the Twin Cities campus to have received that distinction.

What I find outrageous is that you have allowed my entry to be butchered, apparently by one Andrew Philip Cross, who may be an expert on music and jazz but looks like a partisan hack in his tweets and blog posts and such. It is completely disgusting that the major contributions I have made to the study of the assassination of JFK, the death of Senator Paul Wellstone, 9/11, Sandy Hook and the Boston bombing should be pitched with no consideration for their significance. I founded Scholars for 9/11 Truth and was the person who put 9/11 on the public map. There was a flat line for discussion of 9/11 before I founded Scholars, after which it began to climb and climb, culminating with The American Scholars Conference in 2006. I organized the first national conference for Scholars in Madison 2007, edited its first book, THE 9/11 CONSPIRACY (2007) and organized its first international conference in Vancouver 2012. And I assisted Stephen Francis in organizing The Midwest 9/11 Truth Conference in Urbana, IL 2013.

I have been the most outspoken critic of the views of Steve Jones and A&E911, where my presentation at The Midwest 9/11 Truth Conference offered a severe critique of its approach, explaining that the WTC was destroyed by nukes and that all four of the 9/11 crash sites appear to have been faked. This is enormously important, because if none of those planes crashed, then none of the passengers abroad them died in crashes that did not take place and there were no "suicide hijackers" who caused them to crash. In addition I again assisted Stephen Francis in organizing The Academic Freedom Conference: Are there limits to inquiry?, taking JFK, 9/11 and the Holocaust as the prime examples of subjects that are treated gingerly by the academy, but which deserve to be taught, studied and dissected. I have given over 1,000 interviews on these subjects, where, I would suggest, if my work as a conspiracy analyst is not worthy of inclusion, then Wikipedia should drop the pretense of being a valuable resource. Your vaunted standards of objectivity and neutrality of viewpoint are mocked by allowing an unqualified zealot to trash an entry on these subjects as important as this one. — Preceding unsigned comment added by James H. Fetzer, McKnight Professor Emeritus 24.159.240.214 (talk) 06:15, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

"Changes to lead" discussion on PK talk page Feb 2014[edit]

I read with some knowing amusement your Feb 2014 PK talk page logical attempt to reason with the gang of skeptically dogmatic editors now running that article. For years, I was a major contributor, but I quit the article in disgust, as explained here. The very reasonable change you wanted to make in the intro regarding the biased line There is no scientific evidence that psychokinesis is a real phenomenon. used to read more neutrally (on the day I quit and prior) Most scientists believe that the existence of psychokinesis has not been convincingly demonstrated. You can see the article back then archived Nov 26 2013 here. Except for the video link, I am the editor who provided all the photos used in the article as of that date. Note that there was back then a prominent mention with photo of Nobel laureate Brian Josephson's position on PK and quantum mechanics. He is gone totally from the article now as well as many other witnesses on the pro side. Don't even waste your time on the article. The skeptic gang running it (see my talk page post link for evidence of that) are not even aware that they're biased attitude means the utter end of the skeptical movement if PK is ever convincingly proven. The gang will quickly attempt a cover-up and remove all the embarassing anti-material and try to jump on the pro-bandwagon, but it won't work. I'm not looking to start a discussion here, as I don't log in to Wikipedia frequently any more, but you sounded extremely intelligent and logical in your Feb 2014 PK talk page posts, so I just wanted to fill you in on a little history of that article. 5Q5 (talk) 18:39, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
