The problem is intensity forecasting is even more difficult than track forecasting when it comes to tropical cyclones. They don't know for sure it will weaken as much as forecast. Some slight weakening is expected currently as the outer reaches of the storm are being disrupted by mountainous terrai...

Not really. They support Sanders.

There is no evidence that this hurricane will be anywhere near that speed when it makes landfall with Florida. It will be a typical Category 5 hurricane. Bad, but not the end of the world. The evidence that it will be that speed or more if it hits Florida is that in order to get to Florida it has t...

I don't think you understand what you mean by "objectively wrong". Okay, then just plain old wrong then. Wrong according to you. Also, in the future we will be probably be able to grow meat without raising and killing live sentient animals. That is if civilization doesn't collapse before ...

If this anti-net neutrality situation gets bad enough, maybe the courts will combat it using anti-trust laws or other pro-competition legislation. Until then, the issue is too abstract for most people to care. People care when they see how politics affects their everyday lives. US congress is full ...

The radical left extremists are not getting their way. What happens is the right wing guys on the internet exaggerate to make it seem like the left wing extremists are getting their way and then they get mad about stuff that didn't actually happen. A good example of this would be the videos on Yout...

OMG, you've hit me with it again! I'm being destroyed here by your superior debating skills. Have some mercy!

Vacuous sarcastic response. How clever.

Whatever. I'm done.

It's not my fault you don't have the patience to read or think for yourself. Wow, when refusing to bite troll brait that really was the last thing I expected you to say.

Do you even know what you're writing? It's not my fault you don't have the patience to read or think for yourself. Look at that wall of crap, all to try and argue that being emotionally involved in something makes you better placed to be objective. I didn't say it makes people more objective, just ...

Some of the views of PETA on animal rights are considered "extreme" now, but in the future technology/culture may evolve to the point where humans no longer slaughter animals for food. No, PETA will always be viewed as being extreme, because the beliefs they base their actions upon are co...

They main feature of any extreme left culture has been the mass suffering of its people. Why does Scandinavia have such a high standard of living? I suppose I could link you articles about the various mass starvations that happened in the Soviet Union, China etc, the various humanitarian disasters ...

No it doesn't. We all know what objective means. You obviously don't. Your claims to being more "objective" and "rational" are laughable. The real issue is a lack of empathy. You have no emotional reaction to racists rants targeting black people, yet you irrationally twist somet...

You are not more objective than others simply because you lack an emotional reaction to certain things that don't effect you directly. Yes you are, that's literally what the word means. No it doesn't. Objective : not influenced by personal feelings or opinions in considering and representing facts ...

Extreme ends of the political spectrum are taken up by idiots. Thankfully hardly anyone actually sits there even though their antics gets them a lot of TV air time, most people imo are just centre-left or centre-right. The definition of "centre" is different in the US than it is in the UK...

I've thought similar things for a long time, not just on politics but most things. I too have been labouring under the idea that people with ASD were supposedly more logical and came at things with a more objective and informed manner, but I see so many things on this forum daily (again not just po...
