    re How to tell the difference between scientific and conspiratorial skepticism.

    I guess now I know the real danger AI presents….It is it’s incredibly successful mobilization of targeted misinformation. It’s not gonna be wayward killer robots hunting us down…not saying that can’t happen. It is using our psychological weaknesses against us in a focused manner….and we are seeing it happen this very day.

    But we have free speech in Murica. That means our principles are paramount and outcomes are subordinate. So let freedom ring cuz we have principles like theists have commandments and without those first amendment principles the free marketplace of ideas which is so efficient would not be in play.

    Reg,

    If Wendy Molyneux is going to send the vital message she has, she really needs to do it with all the tact, finesse, style, and grace that befits an effete, elite, intellectual journal like McSweeny’s.

    New Yorkers could provide her with an object example.  New Yorkers not only use the word “fuck,” but they do it by a meticulous method, for they also precede and follow every word with “fuck” or the Gerund Present Participle “Fucking.”

    And–now this is crucial–New Yorkers also take every word more than one syllable, split it apart, then insert “Fuck” or “Fucking” in the middle of the word.  As in: “Abso-fucking-lutely!”

    The only exception to this is reciting the Alphabet, which is always done by preceeding each letter with the Gerund Present Participle “Fucking,” as in “Fucking-A, Fucking-B, Fucking-C, Fucking-D…”

    Fuck, Wendy!  Fucking get fucking it fucking right!  Fuck!

    Reg,

    The Jann Bellamy story about courts ordering hospitals to administer Ivermectin just goes to show why government shouldn’t be the single-payer provider and controller of medicine.

    The Judges and career bureaucrats evidently think we’re their livestock, so why wouldn’t they force administering livestock medicine to us?

    When government controls the practice of medicine, what they see as bedside manner is what you get, even if it is Woo.

    And when all Doctors and Nurses are forced onto the same page, there is no effective second opinion, and a second opinion from studied professionals is what keeps medicine above board and evidence-based.

    And with the doctrine of “Sovereign Immunity,” a government-run health care system can never be held liable for malpractice…unless, of course, the settlement is taxed from your pocket and every other taxpayer’s pocket.

    If people want Woo, let them get it themselves and take their own damn risks, but don’t don’t force rational, scientific medical professionals to practice Woo and don’t let government have that power in the first place!  That way lies madness!

    Some people won’t take the vaccine because they don’t want to have a 5G chip implanted in their body so that they can be tracked by the Deep State. They warn each other about this using their 5G mobile phones that the government can track and record.

    Others don’t trust the science behind the vaccine because it was “untested” and “developed too quickly” by Big Pharma which is just plain wrong (or bull-fucking-shit as they might say in NYC 😊). They don’t trust the medical professionals to look after them so they won’t take it. They do put their trust (actually their lives) in the hands of Internet trolls and the deranged morons from the world of Quackademia. From listening to their “advice” they are demanding to be allowed to take horse de-worming tablets. And who makes these veterinary products? Big Pharma of course. I think they all deserve an award.

    Question – are you able to view the photographs this week as they are from the NYT. It now allows a subscriber to share a story and I was wondering if the page opened to allow viewing “for free”.

    If it worked I will share more as they do have some good posts.

    @robert –  That antivaxxer site is the epitome of tragicomic. I think compassion fatigue has set in.

    Nearly every one of them is sure Jeebus will show up to at the last minute to heal their leprosy. This IS what religion does. Poisons everything. And then they die with a mask on.
