Well when the church is willing to burn you at the the stake for offering up a not church approved opinion you toe the line or burn. Kind of like the vax mandates.Reading the comments (because I didn’t watch the video and generally detest doing so if I can read) it was interesting how one writer observed their backpedaling once they realized they were in an indefensible situation.
This sadly is human nature. To me it’s just easier to admit you’re wrong but with people it’s like a sunk cost - once you’ve accepted a position on an issue you have to keep justifying it to yourself. No matter how ridiculous. You tell yourself it’s logical even though you know it isn’t.
This is why people call it science when it isn’t based on anything but feelings.
Back when people insisted the Earth was the center of the universe astronomers observed that Mars didn’t move like a planet circling the Earth. It went backwards and forward in an inconsistent fashion. Mind you they knew it to be totally consistent with both the Earth and Mars circling the Sun, but they were determined to find SOMETHING that would show otherwise. So they concocted this ridiculous orbit around the Earth where Mars went into little circles within circles reminiscent of old Spirograph drawings. Look it up. Epicycles they called them. All to justify a ridiculous notion that was popular to support but KNOWN to be false.
Lots of “science “ has happened like this.
It's something my most leftie friends - most of them - don't quite get. A football team has one primary task - to win games. And within the rules, obviously. You might say it's to make money, but losing teams rarely make money or draw fans.It was...something when I saw those white bread students come to the conclusion that strict quota enforcement would logically (in their minds) mean they would not have enough Negroes on their team to win at football.
There's another video out there to that effect. All the kids are like, "Yeah, rich people should share their money!" until asked if they'd give some of their grade to a failing student and then they're all, "Well that's not fair. I worked hard for that grade!"You get the same response until their class grades are going to be ' averaged ' out
FWIW, I have no issue with women pilots. I've flown missions with them. The rub is when they are held to a lesser standard than the rest of the trainees.CDR Tom Sobiek said:"The women are going to graduate regardless of how they performed" "the Navy was in a race with the Air Force to get the first female fighter pilot".
