    But I like to watch my team win. My team is the best. The game is rigged unless my team wins. I don't care about facts, facts are silly things.

    That is correct. That is why the video matters, at least to me.

    I don't know who the bad guys are in this one.

    When we invaded Iraq we were the bad guys because they certainly didn't have any WMDs. But we could get away with it so we did anyway because...

    This is the kind of stuff that brings in pilgrims and money, we have an emotional attachment to believing this kind of stuff. And that's okay if we treat it the same way we treat seeing a movie. ...

    Thanks for the link, and it looks like this is finally a study that controlled for some other factors usually ignored in epidemiology (alcohol consumption, lifestyle). However, what they...

    I thought this was an excellent response because it's the same thing I hear in these parts from right wingers. Their position has nothing to do with good environmental policy, rather it's an...

    Yes, but it was called "spin" because the particle was behaving as if it was spinning about an internal axis.

    If Moogly means ordinary spinning objects like soccer balls, that has to do with spin...

    SCIENTISTS STUDIED AMERICANS FOR EIGHT YEARS TO FIND OUT HOW RED MEAT AFFECTED THEIR HEALTH
  13. This is interesting because I've always found...

    This is interesting because I've always found christianity to be nothing more than a collection of urban legends. Having attended catholic schools many of the movies we were shown were nothing more...

    People say they believe lots of dumb religious things but never live by those statements. Everything is god's plan, god's will, so whatever happens, whatever you do is the god's plan. So do...

    If I'm the smartest person in my graduating class it doesn't matter our grades or class standing. All that is unimportant because that information does not matter compared to what I know and...
