If that stone is a person on this forum, or frankly a person in general, then yes.

The majority of the petitions on petition websites are full of half truths or no truth at all, their very existance is a nuisance and every time they get sent to a real senator or higher it just wastes valuable time for people to do actual work. And thats just the petitions that arent full of memes and clickbait style "facts" that prey on the gullibility of the common internet-goer.

do you think it is verifiable that a thermonuclear exchange could destroy the entire world

That is I think the one truly verifiable fact. Well, actually it's not true if you want to be technical. Every nation on earth could be leveled, and humanity possibly driven extinct, but the earth wouldn't budge an inch.

After your declaration regarding the use of martial arts to murder Sargon of Akkad, you calling anyone an edgelord will never be anything but hilarious.

I should probably also mention that popular vote is relevant in democracies. As Trump's approval rates continue to plummet, it's outright delusional to not have them into account.

It still doesn't relate to the subject of the petition. His approval ratings are irrelevant to whether or not he's guilty of the claim.
I mean, it's irrelevant regardless. The system was explicitly designed this way, it's not a mistake that someone with more votes lost. Feel free to advocate for changing it for the next vote, but trying to retcon it now is, what word did you use? That's right. Petty.


If you're trying to kill Sargon of Akkad you're a little late on that one. He died long ago, and probably deserved it. Or if you're talking about the Youtuber, he seems like a petty jerk (and a terrible, terrible debater*) but he probably shouldn't be karate'd to death. It's really only hilarious if you're talking about killing the guy who's dead already.

*Am I the only one who demands skillful articulation and logical support of opinions being presented? C'mon people, at least withhold your praise for somebody who says the horrible things you think in an entertaining way.

I NOW DECLARE POLITICAL TALK CEASED!
This is the second time today I've been drawn into a political argument on the internet. If you guys keep this up it will ruin my health.

Now for distraction:

i am more interested in the path people take to their conclusions than about what conclusions a person makes

Am I allowed to reply? It's been made clear that the mods had to step in to cease this, but the comment's still up after an entire day.

As long as people are not flaming, baiting or trolling, I have no intention of stopping conversations. I personally feel like this whole conversion is not good for the community or for anyone involved, but it is not my place as a mod to stop a conversation for that reason.

So, by all means, reply if you feel like you need to, but I will remind everyone to be respectful and follow the CoC.

Me and Helios argue all the time. It is par for the course. I think we just do it to release some steam or something, but I'm not entirely sure.
But I'll try to remind myself to spoiler the text, just so I won't drown any conversations as much.

- No civilization known to man considers false-equivalencies, double standards and outright delusion "logical support"

- Just stating the obvious

- I didn't continue that conversation, and as it turns out there was a good reason for it. Just claiming 'that actually reinforces my point' without explaining why does not a retort make.

- Again, the chain of justifications you offered are at odds with each other.

I wish.

But that statement was aimed at rag, since he actually responded to mine.

The sad thing is that, thanks to recent events, the likelihood of my insults being true is even higher.

- A) See further down the article and B) still no "evolutionarily inferior" (by itself impossible, since evolution works with what it has, it does not have grades)
