Risk, Reward, Bayes, and Engineers who can't do math
I walk up to you and try to stab you. Somehow, in the ensuing struggle I wind up dead. You're now a murderer, go to jail you piece of scum. Really? I guess you should've just let me kill you.
Well, you're wrong here too. The important differences are that porn stars are tested for diseases regularly and aren't constantly in a drugged stupor while their counterparts are typically the opposite. The key point being that while they perform similar work one is semi-regulated and the other is a prime cause of STD/STI transmissions.
What did you just tell me?
@ ET: Or you know give concrete examples? That would really make your argument stronger, please for the love of god give an example of what you are talking about.
ET: What do you think terrorism means? And you are saying that America is the true source of fear in this world? Really?
You will make a great politician, not only did you not answer my question you went off on another tangent. Once again what does terrorism mean for you? How would you define it?
ET: If someone ran up to you with a knife in hand, and you held a gun, would you be a murderer for shooting them to stop them from possibly killing you?
I'm asking this specifically for clarification of how you define things, because it sounds like you need to go to elementary school with some of the arguments you are providing.
In addition, it's likely you are simply at the stage of life where you want to rebel against everything.
You are likely a teenager that thinks they are smarter than everyone, but has little evidence to back up anything they do.
You are twisting the definitions of every word you are using for your argument.
You'd actually be really good at starting a cult.
Anyways, it's not that we are being brainwashed - by the definitions you have provided, it's a giant leap to go ahead and say that Bush is the same as Osama.
It's absurd, and we would all appreciate if you stick in school, because if you are a good example of the future of America, then I may need to move to another country soon.
I'm not sure what the names for these particular logical fallacies are, but I think ET's argument boils down to "Words don't mean things, therefore I'm always right," and "The fact that you don't agree with me means They got to you."
Hey Empirez Troll :)
This seems to be a long discussion, nice link though lol.
