Because this person started by insulting not only me but the entire Nursing profession. I really should provide links to this site to the other Nurses I know. Perhaps having twenty or me “LBCs” making posts on here will make a bigger difference. Some of them are not half as patient or tolerable of outright stupidity as I am.
There is NO reason to “cite sources” for every single thing I say. I am a Nurse, with medical training and ten years Nursing experience. What I say can be easily corroborated by the sphere of public knowledge. Using that knowledge, common sense, and critical thinking allows one to reach the exact same conclusions I did, and understanding the human body proves those conclusions.
Alexandryne, if she/he is as old as they say, and as involved in higher education as they say, should already KNOW the data that proves me right. Instead they are attempting to cast doubts and aspersions on not only me but on the entire Nursing profession by default. To this I ask why? Why would they willingly attempt character assassination on a medical professional in an effort to deceive others (especially younger children) and to instill in them a distrust and disbelief of educated adults?
That is a heinous crime. I continue to stand by what I have said. Nursing knowledge is in the public domain. Anyone can look it up from a thousand different sources. Asking me to continually cite references to back up what I know is true is like asking a history teacher to back up the reality of George Washington or Abraham Lincoln. It’s as ridiculous as Ken Ham’s assertion that we “can’t possibly know what happened 65 million years ago because we weren’t there” which completely ignores natural science, astrophysics, carbon-14 dating among other methods to prove age, etc. et al.
If you wish to assert that Science is wrong, you had better have the documented evidence and proof to back your claims up. Science does NOT need to, nor is it required to prove itself to every arrogant, deceitful teenager out there. That teenager has a moral duty to find out the truth themselves, and not to accuse educated adults of pandering false information. Once again, everything I say can be easily checked by a thousand sources. I don’t have the time to cater to someone else’s delusional or deceitful “requirements” to prove what I say.
Man CANNOT grow wings. PERIOD. Anyone who tells you otherwise or suggests that scientific fact is wrong is LYING. The real question is WHY are they lying. They obviously want to spread misinformation and deceive others by making them doubt and distrust confirmed fact by making up their own theories and then asking Science to prove them wrong.
That’s not the way Science works, and any Biology major should know that already. If you have a theory, it must fit the facts – you cannot fit the facts to suit your theory. If your theory does not fit the facts, it must be discarded. To do otherwise is to deceive yourself and is just bad scientific practice that can only lead to false information.
There is no such thing as “magic”. Nowhere. Anyone who chooses to maintain this lie can pony up whatever “proof” or “evidence” they think can prove their point. If they cannot prove that Science is wrong, then they need to sit down and shut up. Spreading lies and falsehoods deliberately is not doing anyone any favors, and attempting to discredit those who DO understand Science is morally wrong.
The Burden of Proof lies with the deviation from the norm. Science has proven its principles and facts day in and day out, consistently. Burden of Proof lies with, and is the responsibility of, anyone claiming Scientific fact is wrong. Want to say that humans can grow wings? Fine. Show The Proof. If not, then you are supporting a false theory and have no verifiable data to back yourself up. 1 week ago
