  1. Black Lives Matter Global Network are a fringe political lobbying group focusing mainly in California.
  2. David Mirrin, in 2011, said this. "That leads back to the trading strategy: Short the dollar. The greenback is already down 20% since Murrin predicted a 50% decline in the pages of Forbes two years ago and he says it’s headed lower, flight-to-safety upturns be damned. “It’s going to be oversold all the way down,” he says, chuckling." in 2011 The Dollar index was around 80. Today it's around 96. That's about a 20% increase, despite covid. I think you should sign up for his financial advice and let us all know how you get on. Good luck.
  3. I don't think you understand the duck test/abductive reasoning.
  4. No, I'm basing my conclusion on actions, not appearances.
  5. Yes you can use the duck test logic. Just tell us what a grooming gang member looks like or what a terrorist sounds like.
  6. You'd have to have a complete lack of empathy to even ask those questions. I can't be bothered to explain to you why heckling anti-racism is wrong. It seems self-evident to me.
  7. The duck test is a form of abductive reasoning. This is its usual expression: If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck. The test implies that a person can identify an unknown subject by observing that subject's habitual characteristics
  8. "Coming over here, raping and bombing and this is the thanks we get?" Your views are horrific.
  9. Brexit -> Kick out foreigners -> Scream at dinghies -> Defund The BBC -> Bring back hanging -> Bring back National Service -> Imperial measurements -> lead in petrol -> Old fashioned lightbulbs Have I missed anything from your joyless utopia?
  10. I'm assuming someone is racist if they have a dissenting view on anti-racism efforts. Yes. Especially if the anti-racism effort is innocuous like taking a knee for 5 seconds. The rest of what you wrote is logical gibberish. Sorry.
  11. If someone takes the knee and says it's a protest against racism then the default position would be to believe them. If someone chooses to boo that protest then I don't know what other conclusion we're supposed to come to, other than they're racist.
  12. Yes. You've got it. This means consensus in science is not irrelevant. It's the reason bodies like The National Academy of Science in The USA exist.
  13. There's a scientific consensus that smoking causes cancer. If you really want I can dig up the names of scientific bodies that have advised governments on that consensus.
