"Accepting other peoples' words as fact != learning."


But disregarding other peoples claims, and listening only to yourself is even worse.
If you're only ever talking to yourself, you can never be wrong.

AND, learning from other people is in fact one of the fastest most efficient, and Safest ways of going about doing it.


"So you can afford to spend money to use other people's findings, but not do your own research and experimentation?"
Well, when you consider the fact that they have resources that I do not, tools that I do not, and tolerances in their measurements that I cannot possibly hope to achieve with what I had available to me... That it would be foolish to put the results of my test over theirs. Why would I do my own tests, when I have others available to me, at a much lower cost ( of both time, and money ). with no reason to doubt the validity of their claims.

"Especially on such a simple subject to test?"
You seem to be underestimating my subject, and my application of it.

"Yup, your schooling system is a grand failure."
How exactly does yours differ?

Also, let me remind you...

The burden of proof is on you at this point.

I offered my proof, but you have to back your claims that my sources are invalid, or that my schooling system is a 'grand failure' in order to invalidate it.
Which is something I REALLY don't see you being able to do :p

Learning from other people != accepting their words as fact. That is, in fact, religion. Blind faith.

Why should I not sacrifice myself in a fanatical explosion when I have no reason to doubt that I will be rewarded with a million virgins in the afterlife?

No, not really. You could go to a hospital to test most of this for cheap/free.

Teaching people to discover things for themselves > enforcing modern mini-religions and cults, calling them "facts".

You offered 0 proof. Only people's words as evidence. I, on the other hand, have found your "facts" to be false, as proven by reality contradicting them.

Now, with that said, you're a robot. Prove me wrong.
See why this doesn't work?

On the other side, only on THIS board there are one or two users who complain and complain, where in the rest of the internet NOBODY cares about lock on.
Now I really hope HVS will not do something because a really few users troll every topic

"one or two"? That's a bit of an understatement. Not to mention that there are a lot of people who ditched this whole series because it was in the first, and will probably ignore the sequel if it includes it.

Too bad its not true, I still can't find anyone outside this board that complains about lock on.
I have seen complains about radar, but no lock on.

'there are a lot of people who ditched this whole series because it was in the first, and will probably ignore the sequel if it includes it.'
Same reason this doesn't work. Burden of proof.


I did offer my proof these 'other peoples words' were credible sources. to counter you made the claim that my sources were wrong, at which point the burden of proof was yours, and the proof you offered was nothing more than anecdotal evidence, The sample size of your 'experiment' was exactly one person, experimenter, AND subject bias were present.
You can't prove yourself right by asking yourself questions, which is what you have tried to do.
That is a system that is completely self fulfilling.

"Why should I not sacrifice myself in a fanatical explosion when I have no reason to doubt that I will be rewarded with a million virgins in the afterlife?"

That is such... Strawman? no its not even related to my argument. Its completely Non Sequitur. And a Red Herring as well.
Here is why my example works.
"As a general rule, the less coherent and less embedded within conventional knowledge a claim appears, the heavier the burden of proof lies on the person asserting the claim. The scientific consensus on cold fusion is a good example. The majority of physicists believe cold fusion is not possible, since it would force the alteration or abandonment of a great many other tested and generally accepted theories about nuclear physics."
Basically, I can't just assume these studies are wrong without any sort reason to think otherwise, because I have the burden of proof.

And now you're contradicting yourself?

I'm beginning to think you don't know what you're saying anymore.
