I mean I can say that "If people dont thinkn its a globe then they are trolls" but thats not really fair
I'm not an engineer I don't think that the gif you send proves or disproves anything
This is what I mean.
If you come up on a house in the woods with no road to it and it’s got vines all over it and it looks like it’s a hundred years old you still conclude that it’s a house. You don’t need to be an architect. You don’t need to be able to identify the architectural style. Jesus
I can't really make a decision on one gif, I think being cautious is worthwhile
This is just a refusal to think.
No but buildings collapsing is a very complex thing and I’d like to hear the opinion of a civil engineer or something on it
Questioning is what truthers do right? Its fair to question and look for more info than choose on the basis of a gif
Yeah the complexity of an issue and my desire for a professional opinion are incredibly related
Still with the appeals to authority.
That’s just an excuse to not think.
who appealed to authority?
“We need professionals to tell us what to believe”
Wanting to know the opinion of somebody who’s qualified in this exact field is not an appeal to authority
I bet you guys believe in gender science.
I'm not appealing to authority in my argument, I'm staying cautious and not making a decision on something I really don't understand from one gif. To me it looks like a building falling down
If I presented that guy’s opinion as truth because he’s a civil engineer, *then* it’s an appeal to authority
However I value the opinion of somebody who spent years learning how this stuff works a lot more than random conspiracy theories
eh? meme you just linked to us a page that contains opinions of architects and truthers so
I did surveying and construction on infrastructure and military projects for 14 years 😏
I think there is space for lay people's perspectives but I can't go off my gut with complex issues. I think it's not fair to
There are no lay people. Every individual has the capacity to self educate on a subject. It is sheer laziness
I AM HERE
LET THE HAVOC ENSUE
LET THE MEMES FLOW
@Meme_War_Vet I would still trust a chartered engineer over a guy who learnt everything from YouTube 😂
The older I get the more cynical I am of university education
Engineers reported to me. 9/10 of them were worthless.
@Meme_War_Vet yeah everyone has the ability to learn and educate themselves but I wouldn't go to someone who self educated for a heart transplant
Me either lol.
But that’s not what I said to do.
