You don't even know what that is either.
I implied no such thing. Stop with the straw-manning.
Your education system, mostly. Now, of course, you still cling to your ideas of your textbooks being reliable, but a lot of scientific 'facts' in there are demonstrably wrong.
I said STUDIED. That doesn't automatically imply that I think I understand them. I'm not like you.
ONCE. I used a vulgarism ONCE (and it's even more hilarious that you said I used vulgarisms before I actually used a vulgarism). Unless you count 'piss' (it wasn't even meant to ridicule you), I did not use a single vulgarism other than 'Fucking' in this entire thread.
NO, it is not. I'm telling you to look at your PAST mistakes, and to LEARN from them. Once you can comprehend the fact that you aren't as competent as you think you are, you can start learning.
Even then, just because you accept you were at fault in the past DOESN'T make you automatically immune from making the same mistakes again. You also have to be open to the fact that you aren't infallible, and you are prone to making similar mistakes in the here and now if you don't keep an eye out.
You illustrate my point perfectly with this gem:
Thanks for that admission of your own fault, but don't project that onto me.teo123 wrote: ↑Sun Feb 17, 2019 3:20 pmYes, I used to believe weird things (that airplanes don't exist...), because I used the wrong methodology (asserting massive conspiracies for no reason). So what? I am not using the same methodology any more. What I believe right now has very little, if anything, to do with what I used to believe.
Be honest, you probably also used to believe stupid things. You probably believed in God and in Santa Claus at some point in your life. What does that have to do with what you believe right now? Nothing, right? Well, the same applies to my former conspiracy theory beliefs.
I do acknowledge that I accepted crazy ideas, and I know that even though I don't buy into these things, I am still not immune from accepting crazy ideas. That's why every idea I come up with, no matter how fond of it I am, I hold it with a degree of skepticism until SCIENTIFIC evidence comes along, or if I'm able to verify it myself. If the facts are inconsistent with it, I discard or revise it, regardless of how reluctant I am.
It would be funny if it weren't so sad.
What 'tyrannical political theory'? Elaborate this for me. I didn't know @brimstoneSalad and I shared some tyrannical political theory.
Oh, you mean government? So you still buy into conspiracy theories, such as the big bad government being out to get you?
Look, man, if you suck at English, don't project that onto me. Sorry that I know big words off the top of my head!
Example? I am trying to TEACH you. I think you are immune to being taught somehow.
