It is all connected. Doing all those things is synergy. The value is greater than the added values of each one, done without the other. Art, music, math, and science go together. Each one increases the value of the other.

Does arguing with crazy people pay off? Ever?
Somebody who agrees with you thinks the earth is flat, therefore you are a kook.

Fail.

Pay off?

This is anonymous Internet posting, the only pay off ever is entertainment.

One of my favorite things about the cult of leftism is that you guys list off stuff like that and dont even realize that it helps make the oppositions point for them.
No, he is a scientist who has reached conclusions that you don’t like so you try to discredit him by calling him a “cartoonist” (as the OP did) or a “propagandist” as you just did.

I am shocked that anyone would think what we are doing here is only entertainment. The internet gives us a better opportunity to understand our shared reality and values and make good decisions than humanity has ever had before and you think this is only about entertainment? That is sad.

What do you think our democracy is about? What are the duties of citizens? Do you think there is a difference between being a child and being an adult? I must be misunderstanding you. Please, convince me I have misinterpreted your meaning.

Whoo, are we divided between people who think it is important to know science and other facts of life before expressing an opinion or going to the polls, and those who have no qualms about saying what comes to their mind out of a position of ignorance about the subjects and issues are?

We really need posters to understand logical fallacies. We can use Trump to improve our understanding of logic.

I personally have proven the 97% figure to you twice.

You are becoming as resistant to facts as TNV.

I think the character of the forum is changing. More and more people are disgusted with that trash.
Not if they are lying. I think lies should be called out, loudly, every time they are seen. I think it's stunning how hypocritical the evangelicals are regarding Trump's blatant immorality in pretty much every regard, ESPECIALLY the lying.

It takes a kook to actually believe the magical fairy tales in the Bible are literally, factually true. Regarding flat earth: Revelations pushes that theory. Just another Biblical "fact" that can't be denied.

Well OP is probably wrong. Probably ALL 100% of climate scientists are lying. About Global Warming in particular? Probably not. But this is probably about what the lies boil down to:

1) no honey, I'm not having an affair 15%
2) no honey, I don't have gay feelings towards Hugh Jackman 8%
3) No, cream and sugar is just as good 31%
4) That's the largest penis I've ever held! 2%
5) Of course I'm still a virgin 42%
Thanks from imaginethat and RNG
