Debate with Mr. Academic, PhD
Based on many twitter debates with academics.
The sky is blue.
Do you have a source for that?
No, but I can see that the sky is blue.
You’re not very educated. Here are 100 academic papers that you should read.
Thanks, but that’s not necessary. The sky is blue.
“Blue” is a social construct. Colors exist on a spectrum.
Yeah, I know. The sky is still blue though. The word “blue” is a useful abstraction, even if there is a color spectrum.
You obviously haven’t read the vast literature on social color theory. I feel sorry for someone with your lack of education.
I don’t need to read a vast literature to know that the sky is blue.
LOL! The sky is black at night. You would know that if you had more life experiences.
You know what I mean. The sky is blue during the day, when there are no clouds in the way, etc.
I guess you’ve never heard about eclipses, lol.
Eclipses are rare events. Exceptions don’t falsify general statements.
To prove that the sky is blue, you’d have to show that every photon coming from the sky is blue.
No, that’s not what “blue” means. You’re shifting the goalposts. “Blue” means that more light in the blue part of the spectrum is coming from the sky, so we perceive it as blue.
Ha, try putting on purple glasses! You are so bigoted you think your perspective is the only valid one. Blind people have a more valid perspective on color, because they don’t have vision privilege. You need to read the vast literature on standpoint theory.
Even if I wore purple glasses, I would still see the sky as a color that corresponds to the label “blue”.
The sky is an illusion anyway, because the light is coming from the sun, not from the sky. The sky is just a social construct. It doesn’t exist.
That’s tactical nihilism. You know what “the sky” means. Light in the blue range gets scattered by air molecules, while other colors pass through. That’s why the sky is blue.
Says the YouTube scholar, lol. Did you get that from a YouTube video or Wikipedia? Here are 100 papers on the philosophy of science that you must read before continuing this discussion.
No, I don’t need to read your vast literature. Dropping citations is not an argument. It’s a combination of fallacies: appeal to authority, appeal to complexity, shifting the burden of proof, and Gish gallop.
Oh, you’re one of those “fallacy” dude-bros. You must have a huge inferiority complex.
I must be crazy for talking to a pretentious jackass like you, lol.
Oh, so now all you have are insults. What happened to your “rationality”?
You’re just playing debating games. You insulted me, so I reciprocated.
To prove that the sky is blue, you would have to put your argument in the proper format with supporting citations, have it peer reviewed and published in a serious academic journal, not on your blog, lololol. Obviously you can’t meet academic criteria internet bro-dude.
Oh look, I found someone who actually did that. Here’s the link: http://www.the-journal-of-obvious-stuff-that-only-idiots-deny.org/the-sky-is-blue.pdf
That’s pseudoscience. Try real science for a change: http://www.the-journal-of-counterintuitive-research-that-proves-i-am-smarter-than-you.edu/calling-the-sky-blue-is-racist-sexist-pseudoscience.pdf.
What makes your link better than mine?
Your link is racist sexist pseudoscience. Try educating yourself and maybe you can become a better person.
I don’t think I could ever be as educated as you.
