Still with the appeals to authority.

2018-08-30 14:46:54 UTC  

How lazy.

2018-08-30 14:47:03 UTC  

That’s just an excuse to not think.

2018-08-30 14:47:04 UTC  

who appealed to authority?

2018-08-30 14:47:12 UTC  

and how

2018-08-30 14:47:20 UTC  

“We need professionals to tell us what to believe”

2018-08-30 14:47:24 UTC  

Wanting to know the opinion of somebody who’s qualified in this exact field is not an appeal to authority

2018-08-30 14:47:25 UTC  


2018-08-30 14:47:49 UTC  

I bet you guys believe in gender science.

2018-08-30 14:48:04 UTC  

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

2018-08-30 14:48:10 UTC  

If I presented that guy’s opinion as truth because he’s a civil engineer, *then* it’s an appeal to authority

2018-08-30 14:48:21 UTC  

Fair enough.

2018-08-30 14:49:02 UTC  

However I value the opinion of somebody who spent years learning how this stuff works a lot more than random conspiracy theories

2018-08-30 14:49:11 UTC  

eh? meme you just linked to us a page that contains opinions of architects and truthers so

2018-08-30 14:49:27 UTC  

I did surveying and construction on infrastructure and military projects for 14 years 😏

2018-08-30 14:50:00 UTC  

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

2018-08-30 14:50:28 UTC  

There are no lay people. Every individual has the capacity to self educate on a subject. It is sheer laziness

2018-08-30 14:51:00 UTC  

welcome @Ætos

@Meme_War_Vet I would still trust a chartered engineer over a guy who learnt everything from YouTube 😂

2018-08-30 14:52:13 UTC  

The older I get the more cynical I am of university education

2018-08-30 14:52:34 UTC  

Engineers reported to me. 9/10 of them were worthless.

2018-08-30 14:52:40 UTC  

@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

2018-08-30 14:52:57 UTC  

Me either lol.

2018-08-30 14:53:03 UTC  

But that’s not what I said to do.

2018-08-30 14:53:09 UTC  

Imagine the chaos if all the airliners in the world were built by self taught plane enthusiasts

2018-08-30 14:53:13 UTC  

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.

2018-08-30 14:53:15 UTC  


2018-08-30 14:53:15 UTC  

You can learn enough tho to understand what’s happening during your surgery.

2018-08-30 14:53:28 UTC  

same, Ætos, same

2018-08-30 14:53:52 UTC  

No global emotes? Smh

2018-08-30 14:54:16 UTC  

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

2018-08-30 14:54:58 UTC  

it ultimately depends on you if you take advantage of uni
