Y'know how you can tell women are crazy?

They used to do things that men liked. Then, they all got together and set their bras on fire, and marched in the streets, and said "WE DON'T HAVE TO DO THINGS THAT YOU LIKE".

And, in an effort to get them to shut up, we agreed. Now, they don't do things that we like any more, and now, outside of fucking them, we don't particularly like them.

And now, having excised every character trait they had that made us like them for their deeds, they say that we've reduced them to sex objects.

They reduced themselves to sex objects.

On a completely different note, here's a wikipedia link to a newspaper advertisement selling sex robots for women in 1913.

I like that. Continue the thought.

If a government is friendly to homeopathy, maybe they could practice homeopathic government in general. Pursue the War On Drugs with zero police officers, for example. Spy on citizens with a single pair of binoculars. Put protesters in jail for only a few seconds, to increase the sentence.

Real science takes the form of, if you do this, that will happen; try it for yourself if you don't believe me.

This is what gives it the power to overturn popular opinion.

If it fails to uphold this standard, it's nothing but deduction and no better than myth.

People have ridden on the coattails of "scientific credibility" for a long time, hiding the fact that it's not science that they're doing by presenting a suitable image to the world, to the point that the word has mostly lost its meaning.

Listening to creationists argue with athiests about the origin is amusing because generally speaking, the creationists don't understand religion, the athiests don't understand science, and nothing is ever said that changes how anybody behaves in the slightest.

It may be a fact. It may not be a fact. But it is an irrelevant piece of information that doesn't guide a persons actions when they get up in the morning, which is why people continue to fight over it, because you can't conclusively settle something that doesn't really matter one way or the other.

At the end of the day, it's just a bunch of bullies trying to force you to bow to their favorite myth.
