re: Conservatism doesn’t always equal Christianity - BiteMe2020
[quote]I never claimed you claimed that. You are claiming that it's a logical fallacy when it's not, though.[/quote] No, I'm not claiming that an appeal to authority is automatically a fallacy. Most of what we think we know is based upon authority, from the time our parents and teachers teach us...

re: Conservatism doesn’t always equal Christianity - BiteMe2020
[quote]Exactly, which is why relying on it wouldn't be an appeal to authority.[/quote] So you don't believe anything you read at all? I'm not claiming that relying upon an authority always results in one being wrong. In fact, quite the opposite. You still appeal to authority to know lots of th...

re: Conservatism doesn’t always equal Christianity - BiteMe2020
[quote]No sir. If you don’t understand what an appeal to authority is, go look it up. If you can’t see that your “point “ is fallacious, I don’t know what to tell you.[/quote] A logical fallacy doesn't necessarily make the assertion false. It's not a deductive fallacy. I take lots of things ...

[quote]Experiments and their results are what science is built on, not people's opinions.[/quote] Reading a fact in a book you didn't observe doesn't make it opinion. [quote]There's no logical fallacy in looking at an experiment done by someone else, thinking that everything looks solid, and a...

re: Does anyone else revel in the lefty hatred for Texas? - BiteMe2020
Much like the US in general, liberals who hate Texas sure do move here too often. They hate it so much they flee California to get here. It really sucks here. I suggest liberals all move back where they're from....

re: Conservatism doesn’t always equal Christianity - BiteMe2020
[quote]No, he specifically mentioned experiments and other forms of evidence as reason to believe that atoms exist.[/quote] But, he takes the people who described those experiments at their word, ergo, on authority. This was an example, but hopefully one that makes a point. If you didn't cond...

[quote]Setting up straw men must be your specialty. Never said I conducted experiments, but they have been conducted and accepted by the scientific community. Now, show me any experiments or actual evidence for your belief. [/quote] So, you take the existence of atoms on authority, then. Th...

re: Political debate response regarding the “death penalty” question - BiteMe2020
The death penalty isn't the deterrent it used to be when you hung someone the following afternoon. Doesn't make much of a difference now. We can castrate kids who are so young they aren't legally able to consent to sex, why not chemically castrate rapists, too?...

re: Governor Abbott releases statement on Biden admin letting covid positive illegals free - BiteMe2020
Immigrants should go to California. They're still COVID-safe with lockdowns, triple masking, free abortions, and public park heroin needles. Not that they could swim to China, but China's using the new anal probes, too. Double good. ...

[quote]Not on testimony, but experiments and actual evidence[/quote] So, you've conducted these experiments first hand, have you? The reason I picked something as trivial as the existence of atoms is because we all believe they exist, and yet only a small, tiny fraction of people have actually...

[quote]Yes, you can. Empathy. Compassion. A desire to do good and treat others the way you want to be treated. That’s the argument. I didn’t need god to tell me how to empathize with others.[/quote] Of course you can be good without God. I don't assume atheists are evil people, lol. No thinking...
