I am on the high horse because I am better than you.

Bwahahaha! What a fucking pompous attitude. You're the one saying it's a subset. It's incumbent on *you* to explain why and your little redundant screed about behavior and irrationality doesn't cut it because you didn't bother describing the behaviors or why they're irrational. You simply block quoted something vague from PolySci and then dropped into ad hominem with both feet.

In the sense that you believe math works, yes. It can be empirically demonstrated.

In the sense that you believe 2+2=4 but cannot prove it, no. The latter is relegated to religion.

You appear to be conflating the two meanings of the word: 1) complete trust or confidence in someone or something, 2) strong belief in God or in the doctrines of a religion. These are not at all the same thing.

Definitions matter.

Comment Re:Twitter is pro-Free Speech ? REALLY ?? (Score 1) 465

The examples of Milo's racism are very easy to find:

Not in the article you linked to or any IT linked to.

From your link: "Twitter didn't say exactly why it banned Yiannopoulos".

Could you perhaps try a little harder to demonstrate where MILO made racist statements and not simply someone who follows him?

Comment BMI != obesity (Score 1, Insightful) 184

It was never meant to be such. Fit athletes can have a high BMI, it's mass (muscle is heavier than fat) against height.

A high BMI can be an indicator of high body fatness. BMI can be used as a screening tool but is not diagnostic of the body fatness or health of an individual.

Emphasis mine.
From CDC.

It was overblown but it's not "pure FUD". I recently had my book lose two of its page formats upon opening and it screwed up the entire thing. Fortunately I save/backup daily and could recover but it took having to shutdown/restart my computer to make things work right again. LO does indeed lose its shit with frequency.

As for your compatibility comment. LO certainly does read MS files better than MS programs read them.
