Put A Red Cross PSA In Front Of the ISIS Beheading Video

sunking2 Oh please (300 comments)

The real question is why do we live in a society that thinks they need actually see this as opposed to reading. I didn't need to to go search out the video to understand the significance of what happened. I think the fact we live in a society that seems to "need" to see such is very telling. Whether you've seen it or not changes none of the facts, and in no way should influence how you feel about such matters.

Economist: File Sharing's Impact On Movies Is Modest At Most

sunking2 Re:Devils advocate (214 comments)

Doesn't matter if they are losing money or not. It is their product and thus have the right to determine how it is consumed. Stay in business or go under has no bearing on the rights of the copyright holder who whether you agree or not legally dictates how they want it to be consumed.

Economist: File Sharing's Impact On Movies Is Modest At Most

sunking2 Devils advocate (214 comments)

The money spent trying to stop piracy is a direct result of piracy. So you can take that money spent right off the bottom line and attribute it to piracy. The fact is people do receive a service without paying for it. All you have to do is find one person who has downloaded a movie instead of going to see it in the theaters to prove this. Let's be honest here and compare the number of people who download movies so they don't have to spend money to see it to those who download them to see if they want to spend money. We all know how that number looks.

Belief In Evolution Doesn't Measure Science Literacy

sunking2 Re:Maybe it doesn't measure science literacy (772 comments)

That's overly simplistic. The vast majority of people have a certain belief system, but that doesn't mean they let it govern their lives. Most do believe in evolution. Most don't believe the Earth is 4000 years old. Is it contradictory? Of course, but so what. It doesn't matter if it is because it fills the gap for the only real question that matters for many people. What happens when you die.
