Yesterday, through a two hour conversation, I was able to "deconvert" two guys that I know. A girl came near the end of our conversation, started to listen in. However, she kept her mind completely closed. The most amusing thing she said was, "I think scientists are stupid."

That's what we call a lost cause.

yeah, damn those scientists and their knowledge of quantum physics and molecular biology! You know they were just smoking pot and getting laid all the way to their PhD anyway, right? Pfff, dumbasses. ¬_¬

I have encountered such lost causes. I had one dingbat say, "fuck scientists". I immediately reminded him of all of the things he had because of science. You know, just about everything we have in life has credit due to science. I finished my comment by telling him, without science he would be fucked. I also quoted what he said. ''science sucks and religion rules" I told him that is the same thought process of the middle east.

I will never ever let some jackass insult science in front of me without giving them a stern reminder why science is so important. Never, ever, let someone say that science is stupid and get away with it. You must confront such idiotic statements! Remind them of the food they eat, the medicine they take, the car they drive, the drinkable water they consume, the energy they waist, and the fucking computer and other technology they use. I could go on and on with examples.

Whoa to the fool that says something as stupid as that to me.

Sorry for the rant, but this is one of my biggest pet peeves.

I'm amazed that you were able to "deconvert" your two friends. You must be a great debater. !^_^!

Props to you for those 2 deconversions! Some people are really not close-minded, they are just very simple and can't think very big. Logic will never deconvert those types.

RiverOtter -- couldn't agree more.

I wish I would have thought to say that, River Otter. Maybe next time I see her sending a text to someone, I'll say, "Gee, thank god for scientists!"

When I worked at a call center, and was talking about certain customers I used to say "you can't argue with stupid, stupid always wins". Some people no matter what won't listen, which is a sad, sad thing. Oh and you can substitute the word "faith" for stupid in my statement, the two words are fairly interchangeable.

The stupid people would be hurled back into the stone ages without science. Perfect example, the middle east. Those superstitious ignoramouses are still throwing stones.

This is another great reminder to the "Science Haters".

Haha, Mark, I'd say faith and stupid are FULLY interchangeable.
