• Is this part of why so many people reject evolution and global warming, GW?

    Both evolution and global warming are complicated topics, with a lot of uncertainties. We aren't certain of the exact evolutionary relationships between various lineages, or the exact progression of the evolution of features like bird flight. We don't know exactly what will happen to things like crops and... show more
    Both evolution and global warming are complicated topics, with a lot of uncertainties. We aren't certain of the exact evolutionary relationships between various lineages, or the exact progression of the evolution of features like bird flight. We don't know exactly what will happen to things like crops and natural resources in a warming world, or exactly how fast the world is going to warm. There's a lot you need to be an expert to understand, and a lot that even the experts don't really understand yet. Perhaps even more so than a lot of other branches of science, there's a lot of "probably" and "best estimate" and "plausible" and so on. It seems like there are a lot of people who are deeply uncomfortable with uncertainty. They would rather have a definite answer that is probably wrong, and believe that answer whole-heartedly, than entertain the possibility that the working assumption they are accepting as true is in some way flawed. "God did it" is certainly a definite, and easy to understand, answer to "Why are there all these different life forms?" It doesn't require any uncertainty, it doesn't require any waiting for new evidence to come in, it just requires, well, blind faith. Similarly, "Human beings can't affect the climate" is definite, and simple. No reflection required. So, how much of a part do you think this fear of uncertainty plays in creationists' and denialists' thinking on evolution and global warming?

  • REAL MADRID 3-1 LIVERPOOL - The turning point of this final was Ramos injuring Salah?

    Liverpool were really bright in the first 30 mins until Salah had to go off. Real Madrid relied on 2 goalkeeping mistakes to score their goals. First Karius threw the ball at Benzema's leg and then he parried Bale's shot from distance in the net. Other than that Bale's first goal was great. I actually... show more

I actually don't think Liverpool were that bad overall. There were some occasions where they did try to get back in the game.

  • Should I call animal control?

    Best answer: I'd call, but I'd also start documenting so you have proof. Take pics and videos of the dog when it's on your property. If she's the type to lie to take the heat off herself, it wouldn't be a bad idea to have some undeniable evidence to shut her down when she starts making up stories. If your... show more

If your cat has any visible injuries that can be photographed as well, do so. Take pics where her dog dug under the fence too, and put this all in a folder so you have it on hand when it's needed. Your cat really would be much safer inside, but that doesn't excuse your neighbors dog either and it's really your choice.

  • Do you think the US will become a dictatorship?

    Best answer: You mean like Trump-ler........or Trumpolini?

    No, as much as Trump *wants* to be like Mussolini..........that's what good ol American Elections are for.

    and at the rate he's going, he'll be lucky to finish his first term, without being impeached.

  • How come every day I hear about a new democrat/liberal celebrity involved in a sex scandal?

    Why not read the Bible instead of engaging in premarital/extramarital sex? I don't understand the way liberals think.

  • Why is it such a dumb idea to remove the 2nd amendment from US citizens?

    The 2nd amendment (the right to bare arms) allows any US Citizen to bear a weapon in the US. This amendment has only allowed weapons to end up in the wrong hands who will commit crimes invovling weapons. It should be removed or atleast people convicted of violent crimes denied of owning a weapon.
