JayB Posted November 16, 2012 Share Posted November 16, 2012 Last one. Here's a gem - a boiling vat of conceit resting precariously atop a logical fallacy, the rare but particularly-apt-for-Seattle inverse argumentum ad populum: "I wonder what would be your comments if an anti-vaccine writer had posted an article with "Stupid Fucking Pro-Vaccine Zombies"? But it happens that anti-vaccine views are held by people who are way too educated, well-read and intelligent to express themselves in this way. At least there is an internal coherency between the title and the Mississippi argument. So we should follow the example of the people with the worst health, education and socio-economic level, instead of the people who are more learned and did better in life in general? Well, well.. If only more people would use their own brains, get informed, and just do the math. You may not be knowledgeable enough to understand all the medical facts and terminology, or to analyze statistics - but you can at least look at the populations defining both trends. Who do you trust more?" Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
