    Which tells you that they're master projectionists. They think Democrats cheated during the count for Biden because it's what they would've done for Trump if given the opportunity. And it's what they're still trying to do now, after the fact.

    It's in the name.

    Gaslight
    Obstruct
    Project

    Or if you prefer

    Gross
    Old
    Pedophiles

    Though that one isn't as relevant to the subject at hand. Well...I guess QAnon is also projection on a grand scale, considering it comes from the party of Roy Moore, Matt Gaetz, and Donald Trump.

    I have written multiple messages stating that I do not share my opinions on historical topics in the classroom. Can you fucking read?

    Of course I want them to come to the same conclusions as me, I think they are the correct ones, but it's on them. Learning about history helped me understand the present in so many ways, I have to believe it will do the same for them. I certainly don't intervene and go "okay class, here's what conclusions you should draw"

    And on top of that, you're on a fucking political forum. Are you saying you don't want to propagate your way of thinking? You aren't looking for more people like you who'll vote in your leaders and fight for the issues you care about? What in the fuck are you doing here, otherwise?

    It's not an opinion, it's none of my business.

    It's also none of your business who I rub genitals with.
    Or what I eat for breakfast.
    etc

    let's see the gop is leading the recount? what can go wrong oh i know! GOP illegally messes with votes but i doubt if AZ flips as Xzi said makes no difference cause biden still won enough states if others do audit and flip i'd say foul play is involved especially if it's GOP led I mean the gop does gerrymandering which gives them a political edge. (should be fucking illegal on all levels of government as i said before), the world has gone to hell it's only a matter of time til the mother of all reboots happen Maybe nostradomus was a little off but i feel he's right bout WW3 being around the corer

    I feel like most examples of voter fraud I read about in 2020 were people voting for the former president.

    It's much easier for me teaching Science. We get to talk all we want about big bang cosmology, evolution, continental drift, the age of the Earth, climate change, heliocentrism, the Earth not being flat, etc., and it's not opinion.

    Edit: Add COVID-19, masks, vaccine efficacy, etc.

    Greene recently chased her down the hallway while frothing at the mouth and screaming incoherently about socialism. It was only a matter of time until Republicans started electing certifiably insane people to congress, now it's only a matter of time until they're the majority within the party. Boebert and Greene definitely represent a good portion of the people who have been filling plastic bags with gasoline lately.

    Scientific theory and fact aren't mutually exclusive.

    the misuse of the word theory in the scientific sense is so fuckin' annoying
    the scientific use of the word "theory" isn't the same as a layperson's use of the word
    things with no credible dissenting sources like gravity, relativity and evolution are scientific theories, all three are entirely measurable and correlate with all our data

    the senator in question was heckling her through her door at work, chasing her down hallways, dear lord
    it's kind of incredible that mtg even has a job, much less being a fuckin' senator
    state of the republican party that single-digit iq reply gal can become a senator by saying "antifa bad qanon good stop the commies"

    I was going to use germ theory as an example of how a scientific theory can also be a fact, but there are a lot of people these days acting like germ theory isn't real, so...

    Theory and fact aren't mutually dependent either. Paradigm shifts happen. They don't happen because of those who settle on theory as "being good enough" or "how we should look at something".

    My theory about gravity is that it is magnetism happening on a grander scale than that we are at a point of being able to verify. Maybe in a hundred years the theory of gravity will "fall". It's relative.

    Interesting theory. Have you submitted your evidence and related findings for peer review? What measurements have you taken that do not correlate with our current understanding of gravity? Have you been able to replicate these results in multiple locations? What equipment did you use? How have you accounted for the thousand upon thousand astronomical readings that we have taken in the last half a millennium? How does your magnetic theory account for the dilation of time nearby particularly significant gravitational wells?

    Are you a bitter skeptic, or are you trying to finesse me of my intellectual efforts? You don't have to like the example, but the point was that paradigm shifts happen. If you don't want to contribute, then you can wait 100 years.

    Wouldn't all fully-plastic and non-metallic matter float if this were a valid theory? Humans would also feel weightless aside from the bottoms of our feet, because all the iron and trace metals in our blood would be pulling at them. Sometimes you don't even need to test a theory if you can just poke holes through it with basic reasoning.

    You think that you are poking holes in my theory by poking holes in whatever you the think the theory is. The point is, that if a paradigm shift were to happen in this example, then your questions would look ignorant after the fact, not leading up to it.
