Guys! I just learned the NRA was the reason why the North ended the war and stopped slavery!
what the what
So a black co-worker of mine posted an article about how open carry is effectively only for white people and one of his friends posted that in the course of the argument. His first statement was specifically that the NRA was founded for black people's protection. I posted the "About" section of NRA.org. He then said ok, it was about marksmanship and that was what allowed the Union to win and that I should use sources other than wikipedia.
I commented about time travel. I'm not sure if I'm dealing with an idiot, or some sort of troll. Mostly posted because there's another guy that frequently posts on my coworker's page with similar talking points, just not nearly as dumb.
People have an amazingly powerful ability to believe what they want to believe, no matter how ridiculous it is or how easy it is to disprove.
Eventually our species will diverge into a species of human that checks facts, and a species that doesn't.
