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.

GMO opponents think they're smarter than everyone else. In reality ...

they are dumber

At least I can understand why intelligent people sometimes develop arrogance.
I've yet to figure out how stupid dumbshits, like these fools, can become so arrogant.
I guess it's just a case of the Dunning-Kruger Effect ... on steroids.

The stars orbit each other in one plane,
while the dust cloud surrounding them

Fasting v. Calorie Restriction (12:49)

I lack the expertise to summarize the conclusions in that video.
But with an obesity epidemic occurring in the U.S. and elsewhere
even the lesser of the two methods would be a step in the right direction.

Dear people of Brazil:
If you are not among the wealthy, you are in for a long, bumpy ride.

After all, you are the ones who made it all possible.

Sit down before reading this.

China is cracking down on ... Communists!

Yes. You read that correctly.
Like everywhere else on Earth, the Oligarchs get real nervous
when their lies and hypocrisy are challenged.
Those students have figured out what's going on,
so the Oligarchs are making sure that they keep their mouths shut.

Russian King, Vladimir Putin

Russian Oligarch Oleg Deripaska with "Pootie"



Republicans lift sanctions on Russian Oligarch

What I would give to see them exhume the remains
of the infamous Commie-hunter Joe McCarthy
(Republican Senator in the 1950's)
and animate his worthless old corpse just long enough
for him to see that his beloved Republican party
has sold its soul to the very enemy
that McCarthy dedicated his life to defeating.

Schadenfreude!

We used to hang traitors ...

now we elect them to the most powerful positions in America.

EPA moves to weaken limits on toxic mercury emissions

It almost sounds like a science fiction story:
The most powerful nation on Earth is brought to its knees
by a tiny group of Oligarchs
who are willing to kill huge numbers of their own people
because they want more money ...

but it is all too real

Defying conservative critics, the Seattle economy is booming ...

after raising the minimum wage to $15 (4:46)

This did not come as a surprise to anyone who has ever opened a history book.
We've already seen how the economy performs when the minimum wage is way higher.
Since those conservatives must have known this (access to the same history books)
the only logical conclusion that can be drawn is that ...

they are lying for the rich
