What do you mean "combination"? And don't come crying to me, I've had two vacations and many deletes from "Mr Thin-skinned".

Why do you believe it is not? I have researched and studied and weighed the evidence and came to the conclusion I did. There is no arrogance there. You say you are not atheist why the attacks?

I Drop The Hubris And Just Get To The Point
Because Your Declarations Are Anecdotal

Re-Read My Posts In This Thread Regarding Snopes
I've Made Myself Clear From The Start

Do Try To Comprehend What You Read

Believe it or not, I do try to comprehend what I read. And try as I might, I'm finding your writing very difficult. Perhaps it's the lack of punctuation. Perhaps it's the beginning capital on each word. I don't recall ever encountering that writing style (it makes me think of the anti-ee cummings).

When you write, "I Drop The Hubris And Just Get To The Point" after quoting my, "You dropped the "many (all?)" when you quoted me", I wonder, will nemesis be chasing after you or me?

On a new line, you wrote, "Because Your Declarations Are Anecdotal". I assume this refers to the previous line. So let me see if I can rephrase what you wrote:
Because my declarations are personal and not based on research, karpenter drops (someone's) excessive pride and gets to the point (that being, Snopes is not to be taken seriously because it has an undeniable progressive bias).

This was in response to my "...many (all?) Trump supporters will tell you Snopes can't be trusted because they belong to George Soros". Now, I suppose that karpenter wants to make it clear that, it is not "because they belong to George Soros", but because Snopes is biased, that karpenter doesn't take Snopes seriously (which is somehow different than karpenter doesn't trust Snopes). I suppose that karpenter might trust Snopes, but think their efforts ludicrous. Is that the case? Perhaps it was the "because they belong to George Soros", that raised karpenter's objection. After all, Snopes does say this is FALSE:
https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/was-snopes-busted-ties-to-soros/


As for my declarations being personal and not based on research, did that cause you to "Drop The Hubris", or "Just Get To The Point"? Getting away from my person research (on Trump supporters' trust in Snopes), I would ask, "Has anyone ever met a Trump supporter who trusted Snopes?

Could you possibly make yourself a little clearer?

Operative and vague words suggesting innuendo...I faintly recall...I heard. What I said I ACTUALLY experienced!

"Suggesting innuendo"
https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/innuendo
an oblique allusion : hint, insinuation; especially : a veiled or equivocal reflection on character or reputation
https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/vague
not clearly expressed : stated in indefinite terms vague accusations
https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/operative
producing an appropriate effect : efficacious operative techniques

Are you suggesting that I am lying, that I don't ACTUALLY have a faint memory of an experience of some teacher allowing an encyclopedia reference in a paper, that I didn't ACTUALLY hear something about Wikipedia being an acceptable source in cases where other encyclopedias are acceptable?
I suppose it's possible that I am a bot with implanted memories...but how would I know? I would also have an implanted memory of no teachers after middle school allowing encyclopedia references in papers.

Outside of references for papers, I think Wikipedia is as good as (if not better than) any other encyclopedia (and Wikipedia does give disclaimers and asks for improvements).

Ok this question may sound like a joke but its serious.
Do Evangelicals support tRump because they think he may be the
Anti-christ and might start armageddon? Personally I am atheist but I have a evangelical family and they are talking about tRump meeting all the requirements of the anti-christ and this was the reason they voted for him. Any thoughts?


Evangelicals got behind Trump, because the establishment of BOTH parties faked their honesty for decades.
They finally woke up!!!!

You've just proven that the comment that I made about you that got deleted for being an insult is actually true.

You've Got A Keyboard

Why Are You So Lazy And Uninformed
That You Need To Ask Any 'Fact Checker' Anything

Stay On Top Of Current Events
Learn To Chase Imbedded Links To Their Original Source
DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH

Google Is Your Friend....

I don't have plenty of time to goof-off here. I haven't enough time to do all I want (should(must)). So I get on OPP to appear busy, when actually I'm procrastinating making a decision about which important thing to start, by doing something less important than anything else.

It is because, I am lazy and uninformed, that I ask fact checkers. If I were informed I wouldn't need to ask. If I weren't lazy, I might choose to spend all the time and resources it would take to confirm or refute some "fact". But I have a lot fewer resources than Fact checker organizations.

As for looking at original sources, I often do. I am continually amazed at the fine cherry picking that I discover.

You wrote, "Google Is Your Friend...." Because Google uses my search history, the search results have a bias toward my interests. It sort of acts as an echo chamber, kinda like my other friends. Because fact checker organizations provide a service (confirmation or refutation of information), they have an incentive to provide the best service possible. Since I have confidence in free markets, I tend to trust fact checkers that have been around for a while (e.g. Snopes). Snopes is not my friend and sometimes disappoints me by refuting things I wish were true.
