The antibiotics resistant strains of bacteria are likely going to wind up being a far more deadly problem than Global Warming...

I mean, don't get me wrong, Global Warming is terrifying, and it will affect everyone's lives (though more those of the next two generations.) But you can mitigate the effects somewhat.

Dying because of a simple infection, because there is no way to treat the infection, is straight back to the fucking Middle Ages. Better buy stock in leeches again. :\

And all because fucking doctors kept proscribing the shit when people had a fucking flu, and because the damned agriculture industry kept feeding it to their lifestock.

Well, those money-grubbing cavemen doctors fixed my hernia. It's really easy to bash the medical industry from the comfort of your computer chair, but when real people have really positive results from doctors you should look at that too.

Not to derail things but aren't you a JDubz? Like, surgery is bad because you can't get a transfusion? I mean hernia operation isn't exactly a bloodbath normally but...

Some think that he dumbs his speech down to the plebeians vernacular, but I don't see him being smart enough to consistently do that all the time.

I mean sooner or later he would have to slip up and say something intelligent. Time will tell I guess.

You can't fake what's wrong with Trump. Nevermind saying something intelligent, you would say something that you think sounds stupid but inadvertently reveals that you're more knowledgeable about a subject then you let on.

It's not just about his speaking style, he has never given any indication that he has any knowledge of any sort regarding US policy, foreign or domestic. He doesn't even appear to have any strongly held opinions that don't change from week to week.

His inability to actually shut the fuck up when it's in his best interest, or in the best interest of the country, is one of many signs that he's emotionally unfit to be President, not just intellectually.

He is utterly incompetent. It's like a drunken chimp with an AK-47.

According to my power company the power in my area comes from:

80.5% Hydroelectric
9.2% Nuclear
4.9% Coal
3.1% Wind
1.8% Natural Gas
0.5% Other

Living near a big ass river helps with the whole clean energy thing.

The whole Eastern Texas bench needs to be cleared.

It's stupid. They've carved a niche out for themselves, and the whole region makes out quite handsomely. There was an article a while back about all the new construction, the beautiful courthouse, etc. etc. paid for off the backs of all the lawyers and corporate witness forced to travel and stay there. They shouldn't be able to create a financial incentive for themselves that influences them finding in favor of patent trolls.

Also, always buy NewEgg.

I saw a video one guy did kind of investigating this shit. He went to the town, to the address where all these businesses are "registered" so that they can be in the district, and it's just a building with a receptionist and a couple dozen empty offices where no one actually works.

Could probably find it by digging around.

President Annoying Orange now apparently believes that the reason these 44 states aren't complying is that they are afraid it will prove he won the popular vote:

White House officials told Fox News on Tuesday that states weren’t cooperating with the commission because they are “concerned they will find fraud” which will “raise doubts about Hillary Clinton winning the popular vote.”

Yes, dumbass, all those Republican controlled states just want to make Hillary Clinton look good...

That's a HOW question (e.g. "How do stars fuse hydrogen into helium?). The WHY question is, why are there stars? Science can't answer that, but the Bible can.

Is an answer worth anything if you can't vet the source and have no reason to believe it is true?

That's called faith. There are plenty of scientists who have put their faith in a variety of theorems, including string theory, that they base on sources that aren't vetted or proved. So whether spiritual or scientific, faith "is the assured expectation of what is hoped for, the evident demonstration of realities that are not seen." (Hebrews 11:1) Admittedly, we can agree upon that, I would think.

I'd say it's a very different kind of faith. It's the kind of faith you have in a friend. You hope they are a good friend and will work out, but if they fail to show it, you're not going to hang out with them anymore. The longer a theory goes on without delivering results, the less and less people who believe it has any worth, and they move on. Especially when they are competing with other ideas that are having more success.

String theory, for example, has been getting trounced by the Standard Model for a while now. The SM has had the Higgs field, Gravitational waves, etc. String theory just hasn't been shown to map onto reality yet. None of its predictions have been experimentally shown yet. It's not quite hopeless yet, but it may very well end up in the garbage bin.

That's the fundamental difference between science and religion: A willingness to admit when the facts don't add up. Religion makes claims and then says they can be neither confirmed nor disproved. Of course individual scientists are people and have egos and some will cling to ideas more strongly than others. But that's why other scientists are there to keep them honest.

Yes. Like when documentaries on the sun explain with absolute certainty that the star will go supernova in a few billion years hence. The Bible states another thing to is contrary. It all comes done to faith? I'd rather put my faith in the Bible's positive look into future than in man's negative look into the future. Eventually, humanity will know who was correct.

Actually, the sun is going to end up being a white dwarf, and then trillions of years later, maybe a black dwarf. It's not big enough to become a black hole, or make a supernova. But details aside, strange that you should pick such a manifestly proven scientific fact as an example of "faith." We know what the sun is going to do because we know the lifecycle of stars extremely well. Before the sun explodes, we're also going to merge with the Andromeda galaxy. That isn't faith, we can observe it moving towards us.
