Many times this subject has got me thinking, because we encounter it multiple times in our daily lives. I think that any discussion based on false
premises is wrong to start with, detrimental to the conclusions of such discussions and other repercussions in our lives, it makes the participants in
such a discussion look empty and ridiculous, and it's a waste of time.
Examples of such premises, which in my opinion are false, include:
- A common one, jealousy. It makes people think crazy things about their wives/husbands, so they start weaving such a web of non-existing events, that
wreak havoc on the other party and makes them look stupid and ridiculous.
- Another one, "The Flat Earth" theory, spawning absurd conversations, such as when people reach the edge of the earth they might fall down off of it,
and so on and so forth. And whole books are written based on such false assumptions.
- Or some story that the media portrays that it started in such and such way and people start discussing based on such fake information, when later
turns out that things were different from the get-go. Given that we're in a conspiracy site, I can mention the weather change, where the media
"experts" are blaming CO2 gases for such a change, when now there are a group of scientists that declare that there are no facts that global warming
is coming from CO2 gases. Also let's not forget that certain gov branches are dumping particles in the sky, called Strategic Aerosol Injection (SAI),
that are "cooling" the planet.
This type of arguments based on such premises is an immediate turn-off for me. The moment I see such a thing I stop reading a book or watching a
program. It's so widespread as a phenomenon, especially in the times we're living in, that I thought it deserves some attention.
So what is your opinion about this subject, what other negative sides does it have and what other glaring examples can you offer of these false
How does it make these "experts" look like when they open their mouth about a certain subject that you know the premises of which are fake?
What about the impact that such false conclusions bring into the whole society?
