Civility is codeword for "all who agree with me"

Any site that removes comments or participation from "trolls" would most certainly end up restricting comment from those who don't agree. Take Climate Change for example. How many news sites have stated that they won't "allow" the deniers AKA those who disagree, to post.

Really? Falsifiable and tested??

Says who? You?

You never did mention that CO2 is only about 0.039% of the atmosphere and is just a TRACE gas. You forgot to mention that the IPCC has stated publicly that there has been no significant warming in over 17 years.

Never mind. The sky is still falling. Eat your bug protein and pay your carbon credits while Al Gore and those like him laugh at you in their million dollar carbon spewing mansions, eating Steak and Caviar while they drop your money into their bank accounts to pay for seaside properties they claimed would be inundated by the flooding waters due to global warming.

I keep hearing this nonsense about "sustainable" food. All of our current food is sustainable, otherwise our grocery stores would be empty.
Isn't what you really mean about "sustainable" food is that it's food for the poor people while REAL food like meats and cheeses and fresh vegetables are for the elite while we poor people should be relegated to the processed junk food and imitation soybean meats along with the GMO's?

According to the article, the people were given information that basically said. "You can't prove autism is from vaccinations" and the rest was scare tactics. Photos of kids suffering from the afflictions the vaccines purport to prevent.

How is this any different than the religious argument?

You can't prove God doesn't exist. This is what happens in hell.

My body belongs to me. You shouldn't worry if I don't get vaccinated if you have been vaccinated... Right? You shouldn't worry if my child hasn't been vaccinated if your child has been vaccinated... Right?

"a paper published in Nature ESTIMATING Arctic ice extent for the past 1450 years shows a sharp decline in Arctic ice beginning in the mid-20th century."

Estimating translates to "using models to GUESS the arctic ice sea extent in the past AND THEN proffering that as PROOF that 2013 was the 6th lowest"

Hide the decline... Hide the decline...

"One gallon of jet fuel weighs approximately 6.7 pounds. Take a Boeing 747-400, for example: a fully-loaded 747 flying from London to Hong Kong would require almost a full tank of gas – somewhere between 50,000 and 60,000 gallons of fuel. That’s upwards of 370,000 pounds of fuel in the tanks. Between the weight of the fuel, the passengers, the cargo, and the luggage onboard, there’s simply no room left for “chemtrail” chemicals even if they did want to spray us all with toxic gunk."

Who said chemtrails were made on London to Hongkong flights? This is your rebuttal of chemtrails??

The fifth amendment does substantially more than protect you from having to answer "did you do it".


You are innocent of the crime you are accused of.

Prosecutor: Were you at the scene of the crime?
Accused: Yes.

This statement can be used against you to find you guilty.

Prosecutor: Did you have anything against the victim
Accused: Yes.

This statement can be used against you to find you guilty.

Prosecutor: Do you have a gun?
Accused: Yes.

This statement can be used against you to find you guilty.

Prosecutor: Were you having an affair with the victims wife?
Accused: Yes.

This statement can be used against you to find you guilty.

I could go on and on and on. We know from the outset of this scenario that the accused is not guilty but each and every one of his statements can be used against him in court to find him guilty despite his innocence.

This is why we have the fifth amendment.
