King Of The Elite Idiots
Why is chemicals is quotes? Is it a quoteworthy word or is the idiot journo trying to refute the simple fact that fluoride is a chemical?Opponents didn’t like the idea of the government adding “chemicals” to their water.
And this is really more important than anything. Why should the government be trusted? What fool social scientist will claim that government is all good and free of nefarious or just wrongheaded schemes?To which some people in Portland, echoing anti-fluoridation activists around the world, reply: We don’t believe you.
What a roundabout way of saying "not proven safe!"We’re asked to accept, for example, that it’s safe to eat food containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs) because, the experts point out, there’s no evidence that it isn’t and no reason to believe that altering genes precisely in a lab is more dangerous than altering them wholesale through traditional breeding.
Oi, this old trope. The Church realized that Galileo's idea of perfectly circular orbits didn't add up. Don't mention that, do we? In fact, Galileo was forced to recant bad science that he couldn't explain....Galileo was put on trial and forced to recant.
What? That theory is now "true" despite all those big inexplainable gaps and that the initial thory has been totally scrapped for a theory that is antithetical???...uestions about whether humans are descended from tree-dwelling creatures (also true but easier to grasp)...
QFTEven for scientists, the scientific method is a hard discipline. They, too, are vulnerable to confirmation bias — the tendency to look for and see only evidence that confirms what they already believe.
Oh what shit. As though the lack of mocking InStitches on SF means he is loved by snarky and competitive commenters.Once the results are published, if they’re important enough, other scientists will try to reproduce them — and, being congenitally skeptical and competitive, will be very happy to announce that they don’t hold up.
pfft, bias and ad hominem attacks. Don't challenge the orthodoxy. Recant! Recant this heresy!! 1.5 degrees in over a century. The world will catch fire!!!!!climate-change skeptics
Wait, the totalitarian nerds that think they know what's best for you and want to impose it at the barrel of a gun are "egalitarian" and "communitarian???Those with a more “egalitarian” and “communitarian” mind-set are generally suspicious of industry and apt to think it’s up to something dangerous that calls for government regulation; they’re likely to see the risks of climate change.
