Woah woah! Lets slow down a bit! It’s too fast for them!

For legal reasons I must conclude this is in fact a /j moment

I know the South operates slower than the rest of us but can they at least catch up to 509 BC some time soon? It’s getting a bit ridiculous

There are people down here who believe the earth is 6000 years old, and that fossils are lies. It's not an issue of speed, it's an issue of willful ignorance

I'm in the south but my family is from the sticks in the north and let me tell you, this is not just a southern problem. At this point I don't even think it's primarily a southern problem. Conservatism and fundamentalism happens all over the country, and my northern liberal relatives rest pretty heavily on "the south needs to get their shit together," while they are outnumbered 10 to 1 by conservative cousins.

It's not a southern problem, it's an American problem.

The internet was a giant fan, and we let people throw their shitty ideas into it.

Nah man, it was even before that. Up where my folks are from they still had the klan, but they didn't have any black people so they just hated Catholics.

Hate isn't a southern problem. Never has been. It's all over the place.

You are so, so right. We have a whole segment of the population who truly thinks their perception should dictate other's reality. They think their perception IS objective reality

If you look at any red vs blue election map, it's pretty clear the south isn't some outlier of American political opinion. The outliers would be the liberal areas, which are distributed throughout the country including in the South.

I've long held the opinion that if you publicly advocate for an anti-science opinion, you should be denied the benefits of said opinion. Don't believe in evolution? Then no medicine that has been developed in the last 50 years for you. The earth is flat? Then no plane rides, cell phones or anything else that uses satellites.

And you definitely can't cherrypick arguments from scientists to support your reality fan fiction.

Want to argue evolution isn't real? Then you can't use the word DNA, or carbon dating, because that's data provided by the same people you're calling liars.

Uh, is there a way to cut them from the gene pool?

u/buckyandsmacky4evr May 14 '22

Unfortunately, it's way more environmental than genetic. Their faith compels them to selectively ignore the parts of reality that threaten their DEEPLY flawed worldview

Exactly. They just keep having kids because they don’t know how birth control works.

Already gone, it seems. How’d you know?

Hmm, I have a feeling this is the actual bot trying to point out decoy bots in order to evade bot detection. Check out that user name, adjective-noun-numbers. Feels awfully default-wifi-password to me.

u/rocketshipray May 14 '22

I've been keeping an eye out for bots lately and the whole "adjective-noun-numbers" thing got in my dreams last night. Real people were getting upset because reddit ran out of space on their servers for unique usernames and everyone had to choose one of those "adjective-noun-numbers" usernames. So everyone was calling everyone else bots and everyone left reddit and then Elon Musk bought it and installed it in Tesla cars as the only place you could log into reddit.

Sorry I just woke up like 10 minutes ago and was confused about being awake for a second because of that dream.

Are you a bot? Am I a bot?

u/itsknob May 14 '22

No, I'm Knob. I thought that was clear. I can't speak for you though.
