Re: Why are Humanities Courses Required For University Students?

Well of course, it depends on the humanities subject. If you're referring to the arts, then this doesn't really apply. Just go to your local Michaels, buy paints and shit, turn on Bob Ross, and you're good to go. I think you're mixing up the humanities with the social sciences. My comment was about...

Re: Which Sciences Are the Most Useful?

LOL. You must have been a stellar scholar. You guys are amusing....but this is like a homeless man telling someone he is broke. You guys are clearly not well educated yet drip with arrogance. Of course most of you are young and haven't had a chance to get a quality education so hopefully you folks ...

Re: Why are Humanities Courses Required For University Students?

Of course, I don't want to knock the arts and humanities altogether. I do think that the scientists and doctors are more important of course, but we need a few artists and historians in society for social progress. The entire fabric of society is rooted in various philosophical issues. How we distr...

Re: Is it risky for babies to be vegan?

What a sad case of utter dogmatism. Not only do you guys try to ban away anybody that argues against you but you blatantly lie about people's actions and comments and then delete their responses. This is utterly pathetic but sadly the norm for vegans who seem to prefer echo-chambers to honest debate.

Re: Which Sciences Are the Most Useful?

He might be one of those 'It's not the government's job' type of people. Right, I don't think its the governments job to censor what people can say and think. Censorship rather quickly turns to dogmatism because its a rather powerful political tool and this is why free speech/expression is widely s...

Re: Which Sciences Are the Most Useful?

I already explained this, and it just demonstrates your general ignorance of the hard sciences that you do not understand it. You didn't explain anything, you just claimed basically that its "different now". But there is no reason to believe that and the sciences aren't isolated to just the "hard s...

Re: Which Sciences Are the Most Useful?

Literally the only dangerous idea here is promoting lay people dismissing established science. That's where we get anti-vaxx and any number of other things that legitimately harm people. The history of science is filled with people outside of the scientific community making significant contribution...

Re: Is it risky for babies to be vegan?

OK, updated forum rules. What do you think? Lay Vegan Lightningman_42 Jebus Red This update just makes even easier for you to get rid of members for expressing views unpopular with vegans. As I pointed out previously, you're just creating an echo-chamber rooted in anti-intellectualism here. Do you ...

Re: Is it risky for babies to be vegan?

We do have studies on the issue which are adequate to assuage fears on the topic for any reasonable person, including professional dietitians and medical professionals. We do? By all means cite the studies. That we have not experimented on children by dividing them up into randomized groups and con...

Re: Which Sciences Are the Most Useful?

If you have a shred of moral decency or even a sense of parsimony, you can understand that some questions range from a waste of time to actively dangerous to the public and human flourishing. You're talking about pop-culture, I'm talking about science. Questioning scientific theories and discussing...
