hardinparamedic: Just because H.Pylori was found to cause peptic ulcers does not mean you'll get taken seriously when you say you have chronic Lyme disease or morgellons
dv-ous: You know, googling around a bit after reading this article, and I learned something.There are germ theory deniers.*idontwanttoliveonthisplanetanymore.jpg*
olddinosaur: The vampire is real.Check the symptoms of rabies, as seen through the eyes of a superstitious eastern--European peasant, and you see what I mean.The zombie is proven by science to be real.If a Haitian witch doctor hates someone and wants revenge, he introduces a poison which makes the victim fall into a coma which lasts about three days. Since Haiti is very hot, the coma is mistaken for death. Only the witch doctor knows when the poison wears off, so he can be there to "wake" the victim.Highly impressive---and very convenient.
ruta: These aren't crazy ideas in science, they're crazy people who happened to stumble over some scientific innovations whilst they were blundering and blithering madly around about totally unscientific shiat. Broken clocks being right twice a day and all that.
Koodz: Lyme disease isn't real anymore? My nephew will be relieved. It farked up most of his childhood.
hardinparamedic: Koodz: Lyme disease isn't real anymore? My nephew will be relieved. It farked up most of his childhood.Lyme disease is a real thing. Chronic Lyme Disease is not.
omeganuepsilon: Pompous misinformation is no way to go through life son.paramedic(and aspiring nurse) =\= Doctor(and much less expert in contagious diseases)
omeganuepsilon: It may be over indulged, or mis-defined, mistreated, or what have you, but it does not necessitate it not existing. Same reason ADD and ADHD and Aspergers are still real conditions to some extent.
omeganuepsilon: If you want to be respected, you should try not shooting your mouth off like a pompous asshole when it's pretty damn clear you have no idea what you're talking about.
omeganuepsilon: If being a pompous asshole is your goal, then by all means, continue. The more people that know you're an ass-hat the better.
hardinparamedic: Well, in this case, we know you have not the slightest idea what you're talking about either.
hardinparamedic: Lyme disease is a real thing. Chronic Lyme Disease is not.
omeganuepsilon: You have severe issues.
omeganuepsilon: I was talking about how it is a colloquial name for a real condition that gets misused and is now therefore avoided. (in otherwords: learn to read, dipshiat)I was not laying down absolutes about how it doesn't exist at all:
omeganuepsilon: But keep farking that chicken Nurse(wannabe) Professor Dr. Butthurt MD.
hardinparamedic: Because I dislike people being victimized by quacks?
omeganuepsilon: Because you reply obsessively as if I'm making a statements like some kind of autism/vaccine nutter when I've done nothing of the sort.
hardinparamedic: when you try to defend things like this.
omeganuepsilon: hardinparamedic: Because I dislike people being victimized by quacks?Because you reply obsessively as if I'm making a statements like some kind of autism/vaccine nutter when I've done nothing of the sort.
omeganuepsilon: You're still doing it.
omeganuepsilon: statements like some kind
hardinparamedic: omeganuepsilon: That is not the claim you made before. You have a very very bad habit of stating vague misleading absolutes and get pissy when you're confronted with facts. If you can't take the heat, maybe stop talking directly out of your ass.You know what? You're absolutely right. I should have been more clear the Boobies on that.You have my apologies. I'll be more careful in the future. I appreciate you keeping me honest.
omeganuepsilon: Do you not grasp the operative part of that?
omeganuepsilon: I understand completely. I even feel the same. I have a thing against all that as well as people who make those sorts of absolutes on the fly, especially when they sound abrasive.If Kood did fall victim, it'd be the better route to explain rather than denigrate. IMO, that's how it came off.
omeganuepsilon: The beatings will continue until morale improves./snerk
