the_dude_abides: so again I ask: do you think that's solid proof of your argument that republicans are stupider than democrats? are they reaching beyond their grasp to spin some kind of political point? did you even read them?
the_dude_abides: and do you believe that either side has facts and science on their side as a matter of course?
the_dude_abides: uhh, none of those studies you posted were peer reviewed. hell, only the first url links to the study (and only the abstract, the full text is not available), the other two link to op-ed pieces on political sites. hell, even the guys who conducted the study say the results were inconclusive and should not be taken literally. and yet here you are, spinning it for political purposes. that is exactly what I mean by pseudo-science, dirty little hacks like you making inferences that aren't there. sorry, nice try. seriously, did you even read the text of the links you posted??? lol
the_dude_abides: namatad: this adjusting of views is exactly what we liberals claim is the difference between us and the gops. this adjusting views, or critical thinking is also why we turn away from religion and conservatism. we want re-evaluate the world and make changes and improvements. they dont want to think.so you're saying that liberals are better critical thinkers than conservatives because you don't stereotype. and then you proceed to stereotype conservatives. brilliant.
the_dude_abides: FirstNationalBastard: edmo: Rav Tokomi: So basically when liberals stop thinking they become conservative?Exhibit A: those wild college friends who marry and have kids and now tolerate nothing in the way of sex, drugs, alcohol, or rap videos.Parenthood makes people stupid. It's true.really? that's your take? that when they were in college and drinking and having sex and doing drugs they were smart? and now that they're trying to act responsibly because they have a family, they're stupid?

make me some tea: skullkrusher: make me some tea: skullkrusher: make me some tea: skullkrusher: based on pictures alone? That's pretty hard.I would think it'd be nearly impossible. It's a lot easier to determine if someone is gay by their demeanor than their physical attributes, but even that's not an accurate measurement.The study was apparently crafted to determine the mental process which each person uses to arrive at their decision.[upload.wikimedia.org image 220x297]Looks straight, not[www.metalinsider.net image 850x854]on the other hand...CSB: My grandmother somehow saw this album cover at my house one day and exclaimed "Dear Jesus, that's a motley crew." My mother found this absolutely hysterical.Heh, I can see my dad finding that in my room as a teenager and asking me why I'm listening to fag music.my Catholic mom was more troubled by Slayer but that came a little bit laterMy mother was really disturbed by finding a Skid Row CD box in the dumpster. She must've thought I was getting into devil worship.
barneyfifesbullet: MaxxLarge: Maybe it's just that increasingly, Lefties don't really give a $#!+ what your sexual orientation is, because it doesn't really define you.What you are is all the left cares about. It defines every single thing they do.

make me some tea: "When the researchers ran the study again with one key modification, they were able to come up with an intriguing answer to this question. This time around, roughly half of the test subjects were required to remember a bit of gibberish-"7T4$RF%"-and type it in after every five faces that they saw. Obviously, this exercise is highly distracting-and that's precisely the point. It took up thinking bandwidth-and when thus distracted, liberals behaved just as the conservatives had in the first study. Now, they too relied on gender stereotypes to decide whether individuals were gay or straight.In other words, it appears that liberals and conservatives alike snap to initial, stereotypical judgments about a person's sexual persuasion based on facial features. But liberals then engage in a more elaborate thinking process and often adjust their views away from the stereotype-at least when they're not distracted."Now THAT is interesting.
