Climate change is a real phenomenon that has been shown repeatedly, scientifically and mathematically, to be caused primarily by human activity.

This is better phrased as "the scientific consensus is agreement that human activity is responsible".

I find it not only peculiar but somewhat blasphemous that you would stop posting under your normal username and then adopt a name which is almost entirely but not quite absolutely the same as a prominent figure in a well-established parody religion.

Seeing as how literally almost nothing should be trusted, practically none of it.

Once again, when presented with the means and opportunity to do so, I did not punch any nazis.

You are like 30 pounds soaking wet. 

I just found out Bannon was in town last night, and everyone was all Tucson about it.

And yet, nobody punched him.

Welcome to the fucking point.

Antifa is a Russian construct. It was created to discredit the American Left.

The whole catch is that it "can't be viewed as terrorism" because it terrorizes for the left.

Stop placating asinine political ploys, idiots.

"The enemy of my enemy is my enemy."

You can't argue with someone who has no ability or inclination to prove you wrong. You're asking the right questions to the wrong people.

If you want to know why scientists on the whole apparently believe climate change is real, you'll have to ask the scientists. Why are you asking Discordians?

There are dozens of obvious similarities between science and religion and no meaningful distinctions between the two.

I'll bite.

You don't understand the difference between science as practiced by scientists and understood by people who know what science is and how it works... and people who are not scientists but would rather put their faith into it than religion.

The difference between science and religion is that the "dogma" of science adapts and changes (as you have pointed out), but the "dogma" of religion does not. With religion, there is always an argument between people who want to adapt it to suit a contemporary context and sensibility. With science, there is no argument unless you're a fucking Flat-Earther.

Religion is subjective and not internally consistent. Science constantly reforms itself for maximum internal consistency. (Note that according to the incompleteness theorem, no such isolated system can be totally self-justified.)

People who treat science as reliable and immutable truth are not scientists. But they're probably still one-up on the religious freaks in terms of "truth".

That being said, science does not dictate morality, and religion encompasses far more than objective truth. Spirituality (and perhaps an open-minded subscription to religion) have much more to do with philosophy than the question, "What is real and how do things work?"

You're not the current Spiritual Leader of all Discordia, that job goes to the most recent registered member of the board.

That's the most sensible thing I've ever heard. Anywhere. Hold on while I make a new account.

Hey Pelvis, fuck you and your asinine opinions of Jackson Pollack.


Pollock's most well-known style is a lot of interesting things, but nuanced is not one of them.

You do have to wonder what sort of idiot keeps walking into the same trap, time and time again though...

The American public?

Sorry they disrespected your hero.

If you think I have a hero in all of this, then you don't understand me. At all.

I think you think I'm someone I'm not. I'm not sure if that's deliberate or not, since I don't know whether or not the person I think you are is the person you are.

Then again, I'm not entirely sure that you are the person you think you are.
