I think one of the issues that I have with ME is the lack of critical thinking in a lot of the cases that are presented.
For example: land masses being in the wrong place. The simple fact is - that would cause ocean currents and weather patters to be quite different. In
some of the cases (NZ being much further north), it would be HUGE climatic changes there. The NZ example is really good one: move it as far north as
people who say it was a lot further north, would make it a huge TROPICAL island.
And yet: they don't claim that and insist that the climate was the same as it is here.
Let's consider the OP of this thread: Stouffer's making a stove top stuffing.
Why would a company who's food division (they had hotels and restaurants too) was always about frozen foods and entrees, have a single product (that
was invented by General Foods...who had a Patent btw for it) that involved rehydrating bread and seasonings? Does it make any good business or legal
Or is the claim that General Foods did not invent Stove Top Stuffing in "your universe" ?
That's something else: "Stouffer's Stove Top Stuffing" - that's a mouth full. Here in "Our Universe" we didn't call it "General Food's Stove Top
Stuffing", nor do people today call it "Kraft Stove Top Stuffing", we've always just referred to it as "Stove Top Stuffing" (though with today's
generation of text speak, most people just say "Stuffing", and many look for a quick fix, instead of making grandma's original bread sage dressing
Humans are the WORST data recorders ever made. Have 10 people witness something, and you'll get 10 different ways it went down. Yell "Fire!" in a
crowded room and 99% of the people in there will panic and trample each other...instead of calmly assessing the situation and exiting the room. Yell
"DON'T LOOK!" and people will, right at you. Yell "DON'T LOOK UP!" and most will.
Have someone say the word "Silk" 5 times and quickly, then ask them quickly "What do cows drink?", enjoy their answer as they get it wrong most
The human mind is easily fooled, easily tricked, sucks at recording data, does not retrieve data like a computer system, and will mess people up all
