    some people are so desperate to believe they know something others don't, or that they're somehow ahead of the game, that they leap to believing certain ideas just because they're controversial. it's an ego jerkoff for them, calling people sheep when they're just as guilty of putting themselves in a mental box as the folks they're trying to shit on.

    it's so funny watching yuri call people sheep when all he wants is to be appreciated by the herd. yes yuri, you're such a good boy. you're a handsome little man, you're precious. we love you.

    Netflix Censors Bill Nye Episode to Remove Segment About Biological Basis for Gender

    When uploaded to Netflix, an episode of the educational children's show "Bill Nye the Science Guy" cut out a segment saying that chromosomes determine one's gender.

    • I think zhese peepol need to choose another word other than 'gender'.detritus
    • Hold on - isn't this tantamount to admitting that non binary genders are a choice, not genetics?detritus
    • There are lots of factors that affect gender, both physically and mentally, and chromosomes are only 1 of many. It's not a binary issue by any means.monospaced
    • So if I will it, I can grow boobs? Yaay!
      .
      No.
      detritus
    • Gender should be the descriptor for the base physical layout, regardless of sexuality or identity etc.
      If not, then what other word?
      detritus
    • Ummmm..."Sex". To be fair, Gender isn't specifically biological.Morning_star
    • Mm, I suppose. hadn't thought to be so basic. Well, that gives us a decade before that's challenged too...detritus
    • how old are you detritus? you sound more and more like a Daily Mail reader lately :)fadein11
    • Because I think that denying genetic dictation of sex/gender is retarded? I'm not the one denying freedom of thought here, Netflix is.detritus
    • Either it's natural and genetic, or it's a choice and the Christians are right. I know which side I'm on...detritus
    • I love how disagreement with some ill-founded nonsense therefore makes me a conservative hard-liner. Which is the more blinkered stance?detritus
    • I willed myself to grow a pair of tits once. Didn't like them though so I willed them to shrink, harden and lodge inside fadein's brain. Explains everything.set
    • I'm now conflating sex and sexuality.
      More fool me. Either/or, both are dictated, not chosen, and if they're chosen, then no need to re-write language.

    • erm, what? So I express justifiable reservations about the EU, state we're better in it, DON'T vote Brexit .. yet I'm now a pro-Brexit DM reader?detritus
    • You do realise how absolutely retarded the "either you agree with me 110% or you're a nazi" stance is? No wonder middle-everywhere 'hates liberals'.detritus
    • It's like free-thought and expression died.detritus
    • You know my family lives in Europe, that my partner's from Europe, fadein? You know I'm possibly facing having to leave my own country because of Brexit?detritus

    • Weigh in with bizarre exaggerated opinions, throw some insults in, then tell the recipient to calm down once they respond. Hahaha, classic fadein.set
    • Says the man who calls anyone a simpleton when rational people show your rabbithole theories may be nonsense. Classic Set. Who asked you anyway?fadein11
    • My initial Daily Mail comment was actually a lighthearted comment - but it clearly flew right over the Brexit Brothers heads :)fadein11

    Biologists say half of all species could be extinct by end of century

    https://www.theguardian.com/envi…

    "One in five species on Earth now faces extinction, and that will rise to 50% by the end of the century unless urgent action is taken. That is the stark view of the world’s leading biologists, ecologists and economists who will gather on Monday to determine the social and economic changes needed to save the planet’s biosphere."

    We cannot guarantee trust in ET messages.

    https://arxiv.org/abs/1802.02180…

    "Our main argument is that a message from ETI can-
    not be decontaminated with certainty. For anything
    more complex than easily printable images or plain text,
    the technical risks are impossible to assess beforehand.
    We may only choose to destroy such a message, or take
    the risk. The risk for humanity may be small, but not
    zero. The probability of encountering malicious ETI
    first might be very low. Perhaps it is much more likely
    to receive a message from positive ETI. Also, the poten-
    tial benefits from joining a galactic network might be
    considerable.

    It is always wise to understand the risks and chances
    beforehand, and make a conscious choice for, or against
    it, rather than blindly following a random path. Overall,
    we believe that the risk is very small (but not zero),
    and the potential benefit very large, so that we strongly
    encourage to read an incoming message."

    • Imagine throwing it away without reading it, out of fear. lol to that.set
    • That's not their actual conclusion, but you're pretty naive to simply assume ET = Good.

    Did the Mysterious 'Planet Nine' Tilt the Solar System?

    In January, astronomers revealed evidence for the potential existence of another planet in the solar system. Researchers suggest that if this world — dubbed Planet Nine — exists, it could be about 10 times Earth's mass and orbit the sun at a distance about 500 times the distance from the Earth to the sun.

    Previous research suggested that Planet Nine would possess a highly tilted orbit compared with the relatively thin, flat zone in which the eight official planets circle the sun. This led scientists to investigate whether Planet Nine's slant might help explain other tilting seen elsewhere in the solar system.

    Should we trust these people without question?

    Meryl Nass is not an expert in childhood vaccines:
    Meryl Nass is a doctor of internal medicine and an expert on bioterrorism, biodefense, anthrax and anthrax vaccine injuries. She has testified before Congress on the subjects of Gulf War illness, anthrax vaccines and bioterrorism. Her blog and anthrax-information websites can be found at AnthraxVaccine.org.

    Sherri Tenpenny is a fraud:
    is an American physician and anti-vaccination activist from Ohio. She has claimed that vaccines cause autism, asthma, ADHD and autoimmune disorders.[1] The author of four books on anti-vaccination, her 2015 lecture tour of Australia was cancelled due to public outcry over her views on vaccination which go against established scientific consensus.

    Suzanne Humphries is not an expert:
    is a nephrologist (kidney doctor. She has written several blog posts and done several podcasts and interviews insinuating that kidney failure is caused by vaccines.[1][2] Humphries uses this purely anecdotal, unstudied, "feeling" of vaccines' role in kidney disease to try and justify why her complete lack of training in any relevant field of immunology or vaccines doesn't disqualify her as an "expert" on the topic.

    • you dont know if thats a true statement. not all vaccines work. example is some vaccines dont contain what they are meant to vaccinated for,yurimon

    Yuri

    EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. you post something about vaccinations within seconds i have found reliable sources that offer evidence that contradict your claims.

    Regarding the HPV article, in the comments was this:

    1. There were 919 cervical cancer deaths in the UK in 2012.
    2. Every one of those deaths were 100% preventable.
    3. You are comparing the cancer rates PER YEAR to alleged HPV reactions (which would only happen ONCE, not every year.)
    4. If your reported 10% was real then the total number of people having serious adverse reactions out of 100,000 would be more than 30,000 i.e. In every single school of 300 girls that were vaccinated 100 of those girls would have had a "serious" reaction

    It seems that, unsurprisingly, the newspaper article is not balanced or well researched. Yet, you are willing to offer it as some kind of credible evidence of conspiracy without any effort to put your claims in context or search out authoritative alternative sources. Its just comes across as myopic, lazy and paranoid. Raise your game.

    • so truemonospaced
    • I dont see why refer to it as such when my own observation is an increase of people who are getting sick from vaccines. its observable fact.yurimon
    • exhibit A. before 2004
      no ones children exhibiting side effects after vaccines.
      now, people's children exhibiting side effects after vaccines.

    • who? how many? even if you're not flat out lying it's hardly enough to discredit vaccinations.scarabin
    • IT TOOK 5 SECONDS.

    • it's common knowledge many don't feel well following a flu shot. this isn't cause for alarm.scarabin
    • Its not just the feeling well. alot of people develop allergies mostly. Who knows whats up with autism. im not saying vaccines dont work.yurimon
    • just something to think about especially whats under reported. its a noticeable number.yurimon
    • No it isn't. If you read my initial link to Science Based Medicine it explains ALL of your concerns.Morning_star
    • The fact is people can't here evidence or information that conflicts their belief without getting upset. Me included. We have lost the ability to be openHayoth
    • And consider we might be wrong.Hayoth
    • i hear what you are saying. I am still open to either side i havent made up my mind.yurimon
    • Yuri. You a doctor? Where are you observing people getting sick after vaccinations? More anecdotal evidence, eh?ETM
  • Science1

    The good thing about science is that it's true whether or not you believe in it.

    • oh god we're going to have all sorts of shitty spoof accounts now aren't weset
    • well considering it says "invited by ____" next to the new username, this will be short livedmoldero
    • Touché QBNmoldero
    • It would be weird if something was only true if you believed in it.qoob
    • I suspect there're a few QBNers who live by that creed, qoob.detritus
    • Thus why mostly everything in science is called a theory. say about 90-80%
      dont forget its occult origins btw.
      yurimon
    • Also, what was scientifically true last week, may not be scientifically true this week.Morning_star
    • there is true science and political motivated science which is design for outcome not truth like pr.yurimon
    • ^^ that's the beauty of it. We're not sure of anything! If we're wrong, we'll adjust.ESKEMA
    • But you really need to convince me your new theory is better, otherwise I'll stick to what I have now!ESKEMA
    • Scientific theories are not to be confused with hypotheses, yurimon. They are far closer to "laws" than "theories."monospaced
    • A theory is a hypothesis that goes through extremely rigorous testing, and becomes a solid theory to base future science on.monospaced
    • Theory: a supposition intended to explain something
      Supposition: a belief held without proof or certain knowledge; an assumption or hypothesis.
      Morning_star
    • Religion: truth, like that flood story and 7k year old earth.moldero
    • Nice try, Morning_star, but those definitions are in the wrong context entirely.monospaced
    • A scientific theory is a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world that is acquired through the scientific method and repeatedly tested and confirmed through observation and experimentation.monospaced
    • A hypothesis is a suggested solution for an unexplained occurrence that does not fit into current accepted scientific theory. The basic idea of a hypothesis is that there is no pre-determined outcome. For a hypothesis to be termed a scientific hypothesis, it has to be something that can be supported or refuted through carefully crafted experimentation or observation. This is called falsifiability and testability, according to the Encyclopedia Britannica.monospaced
    • @Moldero - You're asserting that because 'Science' is under scrutiny, it follows that those scrutinising it promote 'Religion' is an alternative. I've seen no..Morning_star
    • ...evidence of this here, ever.Morning_star
    • @Monospaced - We seem to be debating semantics again. Which, as we've seen before, is largely fruitless. You got anything better ;)Morning_star
    • lol, we are certainly not debating semantics, you are simply using incorrect definitions to make a feeble pointmonospaced
    • you used the wrong version of the definitions of words to fuck up semantics, which is really a huge discredit to your arguing abilitiesmonospaced
    • Dawkins version of evolution is obsolete. /end.
      its ironic.. Dawkins believes in evolution n denied natural selection by that chic.
      yurimon
    • @mono - missing the point as usual.Morning_star
    • No I'm not. We're right on point, and you made a weak argument with bad data and I'm sorry I had to point that out. Theories simply are closer to facts.monospaced
    • No need to apologise. My point: regardless of the definition, theories are not facts. I'm still waiting for my one fact about DarkMatter.Morning_star
    • Fact, Dark matter exists. Also, scientific theories are chalk full of facts.monospaced
    • That is my point, and "the" point.monospaced
    • Dark matter is without definition. We know nothing about its nature. It's nothing but a name. Fact.Morning_star
