I'm only 1/4 Japanese, but my grandpa was fully Japanese. I've never been to Japan either, so my grandpa must not have been real. That obviously means I am not real, despite the fact that I have seen myself and "know" that I exist. So you really can't trust what you see or know either because logic clearly dictates I am not real. #science

Any time i borrowed the power washer from my step father, i would have to hear the lecture about how to run it and that you have to have the water on or it will burn out the motor. Im a 867-5309 years old man (53). So i just went out and purchased my own to avoid this.

u/Born_Libertine 13d ago edited 13d ago Starry

I'm 42, and I still catch instructionals like this from my mom and step-dad. Sometimes, it is a tiny bit condescending. But in my more introspective hours, I often wonder if because of their age (they're in their early 80s), it's a sort of emotional dependency thing... like they know their time is coming to an end, which causes pain and fear, and these things are just them trying desperately to reach out to the past; to what they love most, and are most terrified to never see again...trying to hold on to the happier days of their lives, in the midst of their final ones.

So, I always just say, "Yes, mom. I promise I'll make sure my phone is charged before I drive home." "Yes, dad. I promise I will keep oil in it."

...now I'm starting to cry.

u/Desperate-Strategy10 13d ago

As a mom, I think you're dead on, at least for parents like me. It's really, really fucking hard to watch your kids grow up and become functioning adults when you're so used to them being helpless babies. They need you for so long, an enormous portion of your life, and then one day they just don't anymore. Making that mental switch from "I'm teaching you how to human" to "I'm admiring the person you've become from a respectful distance" feels impossible from where I'm at. I hope it gets easier, but from what I've seen, if anything it'll get harder.

And don't even get me started on the aging part. I'm not trying to cry right now lol.

u/Lost-My-Mind- 13d ago

One day I made my aunt feel the oldest she's ever felt in her life. How did I do this? Well, I'm the youngest of the 7 cousins. And one day, at Thanksgiving she just looked at me and said "IS YOUR HAIR GREY???" and I said "Yes.....and balding on top."

And it was at that moment that she decided she needed to shop for coffins for herself.

Seeing the young ones in your life become old, makes you realize that if the young ones are old, what does that make the person who's 2 generations older than them?

I’m a high school science teacher. There’s always a handful of students who just sort of breeze through by doing the bare minimum of work it takes to technically pass the class, but never bother to really think in-depth about anything or try to understand what’s happening. I assume that they’re thinking this is all “useless” information that they’re “never gonna use anyway.”

But then they leave high school with 0 critical thinking skills or scientific literacy. It is frustrating from my end to see these students who, despite my best efforts, just don’t care enough to learn.

This girl 100% seems like one of those. Sooner or later though, real life is going to hit them like a ton of bricks—because the laws of physics are largely indifferent to your “theories.”

My first book, You're Not Enough (& That's Okay): Escaping the Toxic Culture of Self-Love, is available now, and I couldn't be more excited! In this age of what I call "trendy narcissism," young women are bombarded with the myth that self-love is all we need for satisfaction. The truth is, self-love, self-empowerment, self-fulfillment, self-whatever will ultimately lead to a dead end of disappointment.  In the book, we bust five of society's most popular cultural myths, such as "you can't love other people until you love yourself" and "you determine your own truth." These are superficial lies that, when believed, have both personal and societal ramifications. Thankfully, the Bible gives us truthful alternatives that show us a better way.

She's calculated. This is Allie Beth Stuckey, conservative Christian grifter and hypocrite.

Amazing one can be so confident God exists and yet questions the existence of dinosaurs.

u/Ryokurin 13d ago

It's all to test your faith, you see. Depending on the denomination of Christian you ask the Devil or God put them there to create doubt that they exist. That's the same reasoning on why she'll probably will also say the earth is roughly 6,000 years old. Carbon dating is another big lie to them.

I remember asking when I was little, is it just that time was counted differently in those days since like 7 people in the bible allegedly lived over 900 years, and it didn't go over too well.

I went to a catholic school for 10 years and I once asked how people could live so long. Teacher said there was less pollution and 12 year old me thought “makes sense.”

u/Fearsthelittledeath 13d ago

There is this person who made an hour long video "auditing" the Chicago Field Museum and it literally starts off with her trying to pronounce Eukaryotes and said it wrong anyway while not caring because she didn't believe it made any sense to her. Complained about evolution, all the scientific theories, that dinosaurs are really dragons, and kept saying "how did they know, they weren't there?" or "it doesn't make sense to me so it makes no sense at all for anyone else".

They claimed to be "unbiased" and said the creationist side is also as "ridiculous", but she "audited" the creationist museum later and ate up all their lies. Her later videos of course showed even more what a typical idiotic person she is by being a Trump supporter who tries to get views by wearing a MAGA hat in public trying to force fights.

u/uglyspacepig 13d ago

I hate that video. Everything she says is based purely off of her ignorance and incredulity. Neither of which is a logical or even reasonable basis for a rebuttal.

u/IHaveAChairWawawewa 13d ago

Well, to be fair, we don't really know exactly what they looked like. That's why it was such massive news when we realised they probably had feathers. There might even be curveball organs like elephant trunks n shit that are impossible for us to know because soft tissue doesn't really hold up over millions of years.

But in terms of how they sounded, I think we've got some preserved vocal cavities or something that we used to estimate how they might've sounded.

She's a moron with valid questions but she's too quick to take her uncertainty as evidence against the existence of dinosaurs.

I’ll never understand their delusions. To them it’s impossible to know what a t-rex looked or sounded like because fossils are made up, but they are dead certain of what Jesus looked and sounded like based on a bunch of old stories. How do they compute?

u/Jonahmaxt 13d ago

These are two completely separate ideas that don’t really go together. The bones are real, obviously. Dinosaurs existed, obviously. In terms of how they are represented in pop culture like their skin and their sound, yeah, she’s right those are mostly educated guesses backed by very little evidence.

Clearly this woman does not know the difference between actual science and Jurassic park. To her, I guess it’s all the same ‘nerd fantasy’.

77

u/RubiMent 13d ago

People really underestimate palaeontology. In a film yes, it is backed by little evidence, but actual scientist who theorise how the animals looked like put a lot LOT more effort into the research, and it is not just baseless assumptions. It is far from just slapping skin on some bones.

26

u/SlickWilly49 13d ago

Here’s a really interesting snippet from a talk given by palaeontologist David Hone, where he describes the speed and distance a T-Rex could run. The degree to which they can theorise about the physiology and predation of dinosaurs from a tiny bone structure in the foot is amazing. It’s the difference between investing your life into understanding dinosaurs with the minimal amount of specimens available to us, and “we don’t know what they looked like so they didn’t exist lmao”
