You think virtually every climate scientist in the world is lying?

Sure it was controlled ... by the dudes in the pilots' seats.

Funny, I always believed Idiocracy was about people such as you.

Yeah it's strange how people want to believe in fairy tales other than my own.

Funny, I thought the fact that the people whose job it is to understand climate (i.e. CLIMATOLOGISTS) agree that it's real kind of meant that it has some sort of evidence. Unfortunate that I was wrong. Your well-written argument has certainly convinced me of my folly.

It's like they tried to fit as much fail into as few words as possible..

Well, if your goal was to demonstrate that Idiocracy is coming true by providing yourself as an example, i'd say you succeeded.

It's just... Wow.
I was once in the same camp as this person seems to be. I was prepared to believe in 9/11 as an inside job and that global climate change could be explained by solar activity cycles or what-not. Then I started thinking about things and decided to do some checking for myself. And I realized that I was just uninformed and parroting obviously false opinions.
I just hope that these people would take 5 minutes and do some original research. :(

The fact that this one came from Cracked makes me think of this one:

Science- if you don't occasionally get unexpected or frustrating results, you're not doing it right.

"the scientifically proven fact that 911 was a controlled demolition."
If you'll excuse me, I have to go laugh until my spleen ruptures. Scientifically proven fact? That is such utter horseshit, it isn't even wrong. You CANNOT establish a scientifically proven fact out of a single data point that can never be reproduced, you absolute retard. As it were, occam's razor and a massive mountain of undeniable evidence all point to the towers being felled by terrorists in planes, with the sum total of valid evidence to the contrary being zero.
"these people will happily bash Christanity calling it un scientific, irrational belief"
I have yet to meet someone who believes in woo such as UFOs and Bigfoot that wasn't also happily religious. But whatever.
"yet fervently belief[sic] in the biggest fairytale religion of them all, man made global warming. Anthropogenic global warming has ZERO evidence supporting it and a mountain of evidence against it."
Isn't it amazing that you can say things, but are under absolutely no obligation for them to even remotely resemble reality? I think that's just so neat.

Okay first of all knowing about climate change is not a religion and second go back to Oprah who thinks fire can not melt steel. Oh and take the truth out of your name you do not deserve it.
8/14/2012 11:23:06 AM
it's these kinds of people that make me hide the fact that i want contact with extraterrestrial civilizations. shame by association.
also, to check IF it was a controlled demolition, check the floor plans, check the physics behind an airplane hitting the tower, crunch some numbers until your calculator adds up to a happy face, THEN call demo-job or not. and that's notwithstanding dodgy motives (how why, who... basic stuff). and as stated by Monzach and J. James, occam's razor and personnal research is always a plus to keep in mind.

Ah but this is a conspiracy why add anything resembling logic to it since it would not hold up then and everyone has to have some shadowy reason for everything they are just keeping it from us. Man I hate conspiracy theorists.
8/14/2012 1:52:21 PM
"Anthropogenic global warming has ZERO evidence "
Except for all of it.
8/14/2012 1:54:13 PM
Riiiight. Because 500,000 pounds of airplane and 200,000 pounds of burning fuel that ignited everything it touched couldn't possibly hurt a building. Just like an ever increasing constant source of CO2, over and above all natural causes combined, couldn't possibly induce the greenhouse effect.

Don't forget, it was going hundreds of miles per hour too! Force= Mass x Acceleration. Up the acceleration= up the force.
8/14/2012 9:18:19 PM
"Anthropogenic global warming has ZERO evidence supporting it and a mountain of evidence against it"
Notice how you conveniently did not provide any of this "evidence"?

In a structural engineering course I took in college, we were shown a video about why the towers fell. I don't recall the video perfectly, but it had to do with the unusual way they were constructed, namely that instead of having a bunch of structural columns spread throughout the floorplan, the buildings' support structure was mainly in a dense central area. The outer walls supported some of the weight, and beams between the central area and the outer walls were used to reinforce the walls and support the floors themselves. All that burning fuel caused the supporting beams to buckle and break, and with the outer walls and central supports already weakened by the initial crash, once the top floors started falling, the whole thing cascaded.
The most heartbreaking thing about that video (outside of having to relive that day and think about everyone who died) was seeing the architect of the towers explaining why his design ended up being responsible for so many deaths (with a more normal distributed support structure, the towers would have likely stayed up). Obviously no one was blaming him for not taking into account a jumbo jet full of fuel deliberately being rammed into his buildings, but he clearly explained why his design was not ideal in that situation.

I believe in Bigfoot. There's a fuck of a lot of forest land out there that humans have never explored, and I think it highly likely that Bigfeet inhabit some of these forests.
This said, 9/11 truthery and climate change denial are the height of idiocy.
8/15/2012 10:05:41 AM
Okay, Mr. Sabretardtiger.

Looks like the road to people being named Frito Pendejo starts with people named Sabretruthtiger.

"It's amazing that there are people out there that believe in Aliens and bigfoot..."
If you had only stopped right there, your post would have made some sense.
