in thread What is "aggressive" argument?
Thanks for the links.
- I couldn't watch more than a few minutes of the first one.
Besides that I could not see it's relevance, the sight of Emo Phillips without his wig was even more distracting than his presentation style for a serious subject :)

My conclusion is that if you take a few charts and apocryphal tales, you can sell a company with too much cash just about anything :)
- I only got a few seconds into this one before realising that it was advocating stuff that completely goes against the grain.
I'm gonna stick with my crystals and Mongolian throat chanting thanks :)
In essence, you seem to be suggesting that because others seem not to be able to divorce their own fight or flight instincts, from their intellectual response to what is actually written, we need to abandon long sentences for tabloid headlines and tv sound bites. And that's just sad.
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
