THE SKEPTIC ARENA


This web site is dedicated to the eradication of irrational thinking.
Rationalists are those, whose thinking is strictly guided by the laws of logic.
Rationalists only accept as true, that which has been proven to be true,
through the application of the scientific method.

finally gave up on asking their invisible ghost for rain

Nearly everyone in America who is dying from Covid now - is Republican.
So Republican leaders and the conservative media are panicking
and telling their zombies to ignore what they were being told before ...

and go out and get vaccinated

What is even sicker, is that the zombies will never put 2 and 2 together.
They will still remain loyal to the cult that has been killing them in droves.

Conservatives have all the mental firepower of a desert cactus.

Evangelicals have traded in their love for Jesus
and in return have been given acceptance into ...

the Republican party

You'll find more "Jesus" in a female black widow spider
than you'll find in an entire convention full of conservative Christians.

Those who worked with Trump know that he is insane;
his tens of millions of brainwashed zombies ...

simply don't care

From the article above:

"... virtually everyone around Trump—we're not talking Democrats here,
we are talking Trump aides, intimates, and supporters—
everyone believes he has gone off his rocker.
Let's not put too fine a point [on it]: They believe he is crazy.
"

But here is the important part:

"But that doesn't mean Trump can't be elected again.
He commands a, if not a majority of the country, a very, very substantial minority
[who] comes to believe that this election is stolen and whose support for him ever hardens.
"

Trump, an obese septuagenarian, will be dead soon
but his zombies will be screwing up America
for a long, long time to come.

Why is this happening?

Prices are skyrocketing

This is happening because the Oligarchy wants all those profits back
that it lost during the Pandemic.

The field of medicine uses unscientific racist methodology in evaluating ...

kidney transplant patients

From the article ...

"Kidneys are not white or Black.
There are, in fact, no genes, physiologic traits, or biological characteristics
that distinguish one race from another.
"

But the answer comes at the end ...

"there's a more accurate and race-blind way to test for kidney function,
it's just more expensive—$2, versus $0.02
"

India is severely undercounting Covid deaths.
The official count of around 400,000 is probably more like ...

2 million

Based on population, that total would be far more consistent with the U.S. toll.
