Should we believe what scientists say? (Page 5)

AchillesSinatra: @ Justabigjoke

It's a story that is as familiar as it is depressing. The scientistic zealots (as opposed to what we might call a science "moderate", as I'd view myself) talk a lot about evidence, logic, reason, and critical thinking.

Unfortunately, talk is all they seem able to do, largely in the form of encomiastic slogans ripped off from the likes of Richard Dawkins and Lawrence Krauss. Not one of them seems able to deploy the aforementioned tools themselves.

Previous experience in places such as this has taught me that twenty pages of impeccable logic and evidence to demonstrate that such-and-such is the case is liable to have no persuasive effect whatsoever on the fanatics, given that such-and-such is inimical to their already inculcated preconceptions.

On the other hand, Richard Dawkins or Neil deGrasse Tyson (say) could announce -- without argument -- to the world tomorrow that the very same such-and-such is the case, and mass conversions would ensue.

The fanatics would then explain to us that they were "swayed by the force of the evidence".

justabigjoke: people are now feeble morons, sorry but that's the result of generations of zionist mind fucking, (and child molesting) that these crazed nutters have been able to subject us to, by infiltrating our institutions and governments at all levels. We have been sleeping at the post, and they took the opportunity to destroy us from within.

justabigjoke: im really thinking that its way too late to have a revolution, It took the zionists many hundreds of years to get where they are, and as zionist George Bush said in that speech, "is an ancient hope, that will soon be a reality, we have a chance at creating a NWO, and it will happen".

justabigjoke: maybe we should just let the zionists run everything, but then again, show me one zionist US president that seems smart to you? Obama was a good wife for Michael, er, I mean Michelle.
However, part of zionist running the world include reducing the population down to about half a billion..... and we know how they have historically reduced populations before... it's not going to be pretty.
