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.
Imagine the chaos if all the airliners in the world were built by self taught plane enthusiasts
I mean, I’m studying to be a computer engineer. Dunno how useless I will be, but tbh I would not be surprised if I was.
You can learn enough tho to understand what’s happening during your surgery.
same, Ætos, same
No global emotes? Smh
I think uni has a place and university education too, I think that a lot of it at higher levels is just being around people who can help and do know loads about the topic
it ultimately depends on you if you take advantage of uni
