The number of logical fallacies boggle the mind
Robecology comments on Aug 18, 2021:
I can see the concern, here; but I have to respect folk who back their arguments up with a link instead of just saying "get a life" or "grow up". I think "Doing one's own research" is evolving. I have a lot more respect for someone who takes the time to counter my argument with a link...but then it's up to me to analyze the source. I won't even answer to those who operate at the "name calling" or "ad hominen attacks" level. Here's some useful tools to analyze those who are at least willing to post links to support their POV.

I've shared this often - his "military industrial complex" warning he made 2 days before the end of his term. Ike was almost too far ahead of his time. He was instrumental in getting NASA "off the ground". He was key in getting returning Korean "War/police-action" vets to work on the national Interstate highway system. Sadly...his vice president was Richard M.Nixon. Ike was the reason I voted for Nixon. That was the first time I voted....and the last time I voted Republican.

A big sign that M.S. doesn't "get it" is his name calling. Telling a person to "act like a man" is on par with "get a life" and/or "use common sense"...all derogatory remarks from rude people that don't get it. Calling him/her an "idiot" is not only low, mean, and ignorant - but we who have run debate groups know that it's a sign that the person using "name calling" not only has nothing - They're a sore loser. And while a small minority of children do need more structured discipline...to say that "in 99% of cases they are "brats" - is another "name call" that tells us more about Mr. Savage. They who name call know they have no data on their side/in their defense - so instead of bowing to the facts they stoop lower and "name call". Let me attach three "Debate pyramid" images.

Anton Petrov - Mars Inner Structure Finally Revealed After Years of Analysis [youtube.com]
Robecology comments on Aug 9, 2021:
A magnetosphere - like the one on earth that protects us from space radiation - is proven to exist on earth yet is also proven to NOT exist on Mars - and our magnetosphere is clearly connected to our dense, fluid iron-nickel core. Scientists credit the magnetosphere to our dense, fluid core. Now Anton is suggesting that a similar molten core exists on Mars. If so, where's the magnetosphere? Those going there will have to wear heavily shielded space suits. I'm not optimistic.

The problem is complex. Who will profit from its legalization? The lawmakers know that thousands of narcotic cop jobs will go away. They won't be able to arrest many minorities for possession and/or use - so judges and prison populations will change. They know that nations - like Mexico and other central and south American nations - stand to profit a lot from farming the product. Cleaning, dealing, packaging, marketing....all are biting at the bit for their chance to jump in. This won't be an easy transition.

Troll Head, the new name I'm giving to individuals that for no reason make rude or nasty comments ...
Robecology comments on Aug 2, 2021:
So you're being a "Troll head" to complain about "Troll-heads"? OK...but please realize that you're just on a "name-calling" rant....so you are being "Troll-ish yourself. Here's my POV on that. It's name calling. It's what you do when you don't have a good reason to dislike what someone says..so you just "name call" them. It's what you do when you have no good counter-argument. But those of us who've been educated in the process of debate categorize the "troll heads" and other name callers to the lowest strategy or form of debate. And If you've ever participated in a debate on an academic level - you learn that name-calling is not only the "lowest strategy" - it's what those with no data, no support for their POV do. Those of us who've taught "Debate" give those who name call an "F" for their effort. If they continue to name-call (or be "troll-heads as you suggest) they are asked to withdraw from the class...they're showing no effort to change, or adapt to the style of academic debate. Allow me to share the "Debate Pyramids". I'm sharing several that I've used. I hope you find them useful.

Robecology comments on Jul 29, 2021:
BTW; Someone asked me..."why do we who are vaccinated (or immune due to having the illness and growing our own resistance) have to still wear masks? The "why" is a bit of a science thing....but if you can stay with me; 1. Viruses depend on warm, moist bodies. 2. Humans are excellent viral harbors. 3. Fortunately - in our bloodstream are many chemical "antibodies" (not bodies...but dissolved chemicals) that are there either because we created them or got vaccines to be protected from them - so once the viruses enter our blood...they're dissolved (not "killed" as they're not technically "living"). 4. We who are vaccinated CAN CARRY, AND SHARE VIRUSES THAT CAN KILL OTHER HUMANS - They stay "alive" (read active or able to penetrate living cells) because they're 'hitching a ride" on us...in our saliva, in our mucus. They can't "reproduce" because of the "antibodies" in our blood system. 5. Hence if we are vaccinated we might not let the viruses penetrate our blood....but they CAN AND DO EXIST FOR SHORT TIMES WITHIN US. WE CAN CARRY THE VIRUS FROM AN INFECTED PERSON HOME - AND GIVE THAT VIRUS TO A FRIEND, OR FAMILY MEMBER -EVEN IF IT DOESN'T ATTACK US! 6.Thus we should wear masks because there's a lot of idiots who for some reason or another are not vaccinated - and are thus possibly loaded with COVID19 (and many other) viruses - who can then "loan us" a virus that we might infect others with...even though we are immune. Please - you med people and other science pros - correct me if I'm wrong? If not, copy and share. We have to knock this thing out. So far we're not doing that well.

Robecology comments on Jul 28, 2021:
Point taken. We used to have a purpose to our fitness...now it's a goal in itself. We don't strive to be fit because we need it to thrive...(we're no longer hunter-gatherers). But a few of us strive for fitness because that in itself is a survival measure. I'm beginning to get the impression that those who strive to be fit through daily exercise is diminishing. But exercise has been diminished as a factor of importance in society. Sad.

Why is "shooting" an Olympic event anyway? I don't "get it" - I used to own and shoot for target scores...but the NRA got poliical...so I retired my firearms...but maybe you're still in to it? https://www.pewpewtactical.com/olympic-shooting-events/

WATCH: Tucker Carlson Confronted at Store by Man Saying ‘You Are the Worst Human Being’ ...
Robecology comments on Jul 26, 2021:
To just name-call like that is not impressive. To prove them wrong - and to show them evidence that what they said does, in fact, make them "the worst human being"....priceless.
& there's this pill that...
Robecology comments on Jul 26, 2021:
Telling someone to "grow up" is such a dead-end, meaningless, hate-filled expression. Don't look for a pill...look for an attorney.

Global warming is making almost all of us hotter. Soon it will be irreversible and unstoppable. But hey, Dinosaurs survived without a bit of snow or ice, right? (tongue firmly in cheek). https://www.un.org/press/en/2019/ga12131.doc.htm
Linda discovered some sliced port loin in the bottom of our freezer labeled "August 2016".
Robecology comments on Jul 25, 2021:
LOL! Unless your freezer lost power for several days between then and now...that meat's as good as the stuff that wolves were discovered eating in Siberia; unfrozen mammoth flesh from 35,000 years ago. https://www.theatlantic.com/science/archive/2019/12/permafrozen-dinner/604069/

Maher nails it. [rumble.com]
Robecology comments on Jul 24, 2021:
I'm not sure where to stand on this. I love Maher...but I think he gets a little too extreme. This time he's not impressing me. My point is...why seek to blame someone or something? We're dealing with the virus as best we can. We need to accelerate the spread of COVID19 vaccines or the virus will mutate in to stronger forms - making the vaccinations feeble. Let's move ahead...let's not look back at who caused it.

Robecology comments on Jul 23, 2021:
Thank you Nancy Pelosi. McCarthy is just getting nervous because he's been a Trump supporter for so long. And "Gym" Jordan is likely to be subpoenaed as a witness...so it's absurd for "Gym" to be on the commission.
So, heres a thought my kid brought up, and it's stuck in my head: What if Bigfoot sightings - ...
Robecology comments on Jul 23, 2021:
That's the more likely explanation. There's been tons of documentaries and other attempts to "tell the whole story" but nothing's been found. It's turning out to be a joke on the naive. https://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/why-so-many-people-still-believe-in-bigfoot-180970045/

I just plunked down some extra $$ for salt-free, nitrate/nitrite free bacon. Any reports? Good/bad/worth it/not worth it?

Not exactly a pretty bird, but he can fly like a pterodactyl.
Robecology comments on Jul 23, 2021:
Remember that Muscovy's are popular because they're friendly towards people. Unfortunately, they're rapidly moving many shyer, native waterbird species closer to extinction. They're considered a "pest species" here in Florida - and the wildlife people will come and get them and either "snuff" them or "relocate" them ( I hear they're fatty, and greasy, but tasty). Texas also has put them on the "pest" list. https://www.abchomeandcommercial.com/blog/muscovy-ducks/

Loved Carl. Went to hear him speak live when he was in Miami. I recommend that you fellow Agnostics watch his last great work "Contact" or read his book. Brilliant - not for the fiction but for the argument of science vs religion. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q399v-pMG30
COVID, and where did it come from. It's complicated. [youtube.com]
Robecology comments on Jul 22, 2021:
The "Where did it come from" is very "Republican". Let's not try to lay blame on a nation, or people for letting this disease get spread. Let's work to contain it, develop vaccines for it, fund the vaccines, get them spread world wide quickly - so we can make this disease extinct. There's already evolved two tougher, harder-to-kill variants, the Delta and Lambda versions. Let's get off the "where did it come from" and get on the "where is it going" strategy.

Seth isn't as funny as Colbert...but he sure works hard putting together that report. Nice details...and all fact-checkable.
