Whoa - I just thought of a rule:

Because of _____ all _____ is bad.

Always solves to false, given any combination of words?

Hmm...

Iason, of the United States

So no.

And for the interested, the term "organic" was originally applied to gardening using organic (as in carbon-life based) soil amendments rather than extracted nitrogen fertilizer. The definition has expanded to also exclude any other synthetic fertilizers or pesticides.
Many idiots are misusing the term though, so the dislike of the term is intelligible.

That is also irritating, in its own very special way.

But I think that when you go too far in the opposite direction, you just sound like a different kind of idiot. Like the "ALL GMOS ARE GOOD, YOU IGNORANT PLEBES" people. I'm like, stop, you're BOTH wrong!

There is no right and wrong, not on the kind of scale you're talking about with GM and Organic/chemical, there is a massive pile of good things and an equally massive pile of bad things. Applying reductionism to it, is like saying science is bad because nuculear bombz  :roll:

Yeah, pretty much exactly.

And of course, now the "Organic" label is slowly being replaced with "Sustainable", and that's even worse because while in many states in the US, including Oregon and California, there are ACTUAL LAWS and an ACTUAL LEGAL DEFINITION regarding what can and cannot be labeled "Organic", "Sustainable" is totally vague and unregulated.
