Cracks me up this majority thing involving things that are debatable. A smart woman was being questioned on climate change, and was lectured with this insult: ‘We KNOW 99% of the world’s scientists agree that global warming is caused by humans….’ Stop right there.
Are you saying the 1% of they who disagree are idiots? Are you saying that of a thousand scientists, there are ten who are brain-dead? Are you saying that out of a million scientists, 10,000 are bloomin idiots? Forget the math, but are you beginning to see the untenable position that the ‘majority’ holds? Would it kill the pride of the 99 to change THEIR minds?
I do not care what the majority says. After all, was it not the majority who said of Christ, ‘Away with Him, crucify Him?’ Right, like they were smart. And in 2017, the results would be identical.
Yeah, and Bill Nye says ships ‘disappear over a horizon,’ at a few miles out, and probably the 99% self-made smart people agree with him too. Guess what? They are dead wrong. Apparently they never heard of ‘mirroring,’ ‘refraction,’ and ‘perspective.’
Furthermore, listen to the genius scientists who cannot agree on a five-day weather forecast. I planned a roofing project because of 0% chance of rain. It poured. Hilarious. Yet, they pretend to know patterns and predictions based on ‘majority rule.’ Please, give me a break. So yeah, the opinions of the majority are grossly over inflated.
Were not the majority of talking heads made idiots when Trump was elected? Forget whether or not he is a good president. Irrelevant at the moment. The majority is usually wrong. It’s a trend doncha know.
So I am not impressed at ‘numbers’ to support a view. Ever seen the ‘theory of relativity?’ Ever seen the math, the numbers? Not impressed. Yet the majority worships the improbable. I am also not tickled pink at surveys.
Lastly, at the stoning of Stephen, due to a correct delivery of the history of the Jewish people regarding their refusal of the promised One, he met an untimely end at the hands of the majority; NOT because he was wrong or misinterpreted the history, but because he was CORRECT. The majority cast aside Truth.
Lots to chew on, but some things never change.
