Yeah, @firstname.lastname@example.org needs to bring some evidence to the table. Claims should be substantiated by evidence. if you’re trying to debunk someone else’s claim which is substantiated with evidence, you definitely need evidence.
The “classed” Idea makes a lot of sense to me. Sabine Hossenfelder brought that up in her latest video:
Yes, everything is natural selection, and there are good and bad forms of it, some choose to “out-compete them for resources”, and others choose murder.
I think from the white supremacists perspective they see that they are being out competed for resources by non-whites in a civil and legal way, so they’re advocating for murder to help themselves compete.
Imagine a graph of rabbit population on and island where foxes have just been introduced.
I bet it would look a lot like the white & native american graph. I’m not saying its good or bad, just possibly the product of natural predation.
Could you elaborate on what you mean by natural selection?
White supremacists believe that they are the best race and that some evil plot is preventing them from taking over. I don’t have evidence, but I was thinking it would be ironic if it was just natural selection.
If you stab your partner in the back and take his half, some could say you were “smarter” than him, but I dont see that as “being smart” I see it as being “ruthless”. You could define who ever wins the backstabbing contest as “the smartest”, but its not always a strategical win like in a game of chess, but rather who was the best liar.
My main argument is that most people conflate being a psychopath with being intelligent because they’re successful. I assert If these successful psychopaths took intelligence tests with the people they stabbed in the back, they would not always be the smartest.
I don’t really see the conspiracy here. the lemmygrad users post stuff like this all the time, and I think most lemmy.ml users think its easier to ignore them than start the 1000th pointless argument
Exactly capitalists exploit the intelligent people.
On January 23rd, 1923 Banting, Best, and Collip were awarded the American patents for insulin. They sold the patent to the University of Toronto for $1 each. Banting notably said: “Insulin does not belong to me, it belongs to the world.” His desire was for everyone who needed access to it to have it.
And today in America a months supply can cost upward of $1,500 dollars. Capitalism doesn’t reward intelligence, it rewards greed.
I don’t think you have interpreted a single one of my sentences correctly.
I’m sorry you feel this way
Telling other people that they should be subject to your religion
Your are just making up non existing examples.
Anyone on tv or in congress who says “marriage should be between a man and a woman” is saying that “gay marriage should be illegal”. you cannot possibly believe this is a fictitious scenario.
You changed the words and escalated to insults.
No I did not. I just said telling other people what to do is a “dick move”. Unless your identity revolves around telling other people what to do, this is not an insult. I’m explaining why your seeing comments like “marriage should be between a man and a women” get deleted.
You can’t fix incorrect perceptions
There is nothing “incorrect” about that perception. Controlling others is exactly what most people who say that are trying to do, and you cant stop that.
not a debate topic, just a semantic argument
