Pseudoscience reaches new levels of regressiveness

Postby Rojava Free State » Wed Jun 12, 2019 6:43 am

https://malagabay.wordpress.com/2013/06 ... -its-side/

I want everyone here to read this article above and tell me we aren't living in the TV show Southpark. We all have heard of anti vaxxers who think flu shots are dangerous, creationists who think evolution is a lie, flat earthers who think this planet is shaped like a pancake and moon landing deniers who think we never sent Neil Armstrong to take one small step for man, but when you read this article your hope for the future of mankind will die. I have never seen such idioticness in all my life. It happened while I was reading online about human skin color in order to try and determine what my skin color was and I accidentally (and unfortunately) stumbled across this article. Many of you probably expect this to be some vile racist diatribe but honestly that would have been better than what I found. This is way worse ladies and gentlemen. Someone totally rewrote history and geology as we know it and when I say history, I don't mean like world war II or ancient Egypt or rome, I mean they rewrote human migration out of Africa in the dumbest and most insane way possible. Tell me what you think in the comments section below after you read the article, I'm sure either hilarity or disappointment will ensue.

They're claiming that through asteroid impacts the continent's shifted to where they are now and people lived in one big super continent before it was broken apart...by asteroid impacts...

...which is why the skin tones in South America and Africa don't exactly match up...

I'm so disappointed in whoever saw this man's article and actually decided to publish it on malaga bay

The manner in which it is written honestly leads me to suspect that the author may have psychiatric issues of some sort.

Well, they challenged every other scientific discovery in history, I guess the pseudoscience alliance had to challenge plate tectonics as well. Dark age here we come

So, obviously, I'm not going to bother refuting this nonsense point by point. But for anyone who is wondering what's actually going on with skin color in the Americas:
1) Amerindians are relative newcomers, and are descended from relatively light-skinned populations. (Not enough time)
2) Average skin color has not only to do with local sunlight conditions, but with the availability of shade. (Forests are dark)
3) The map is wrong. Or, at least not very detailed. There are greater variations in skin tone in the Americas then are depicted. Especially near the Andes Mountains where high altitude and lack of shade make sun exposure a problem, and average skin tones are darker.

The person who wrote this either (a) did not go to school, or (b) was not taught about the tectonic plates at school.

Maybe he should start looking under the ocean and not at people’s skin.

I think that the worst pseudoscience is with the leftists trying to say that there are infinite genders, which is about as truthful as saying that The PS2 failed. Since the PS2 is the most successful console ever, that means that this gender spam is pseudoscience.

One of the images pretty much disproves their entire theory. Humanity originated in Africa and moved outward, with North and South America the last continents to be settled by humans, as they had to migrate through Asia and the Bering Sea Land Bridge to reach Alaska.

Also something about the sun not being as intense.

This decade could be dubbed as the "decade of Technophobia" or as the "Post-fact era". From anti-smartphone hysteria and wi-fi supposedly killing people to flat earth and anti-vaxxers, nobody trusts technology or the scientific method. It's strange because more often than not people come to hate and fear technology by obtaining knowledge from the internet. Basic, proven knowledge is being challenged for no reason all the time by bloggers who believe their "research" is more valid than scientifically proven facts.

I think that the most harmful pseudoscience was produced by Fascists in Nazi Germany who wanted to split humanity into arbitrary races using pseudo-scientific knowledge, as well as to excuse the mass extermination of Jews. Thankfully, your ideology will never make a comeback and will be forgotten within this century, unlike "people with infinite genders".

An idiot I know once unironically told me that Puerto Ricans are what happens when Black people and Chinese people marry -- that's where the skin color comes from.

He really is so incredibly idiotic I couldn't even be angry at him.

First of all, there are a range of skin tones among Puerto Ricans to begin with, because the heritage is a mix of Taino (indigenous people), Spaniards, and Africans. (So I guess he was not completely wrong about African ancestry...)

And there has been a Chinese community in Puerto Rico as well, but to generalize that all Puerto Ricans are Black/Chinese is moronic.
