    If you find yourself Angry, Bitter and Vindictive every day, all day on Political Forums because you no longer feel privileged or because you lost an Election over 5 years ago … then you really need a life.

    It's a tool science uses, but it's not science. Try again.

    Nothing in sociology is a science, matters. I'm sure they want to represent it as such, but it's not.


    And there's that silly 'lie' meme again when all you could possibly mean is you disagree but cannot articulate why.

    You confuse a news headline for what the prof actually says.

    You think polling is science? Then tell us what the null hypothesis is, assuming you know what that means.

    And there's that silly 'prove' meme when you've articulated no argument at all.

    Think you did, state your argument in syllogistic form. Logic, another tool of science.
