    by "saving face"? Where is there any common ground between you and them? How do you, a scientist, listen to them pretending reality isn't real without going insane?

    I couldn't do it. I can't do it.

    You have fact. They have fairy tales.

    Our message is: here's how reality works. Here's the evidence. Here's the facts. Here's the results and what they show.

    Their message is: We don't want to hear about how reality works. We're too busy saving face and pretending reality isn't happening.

    Like I said in some other comment, I've visited the South twice. Both times, I couldn't wait to get back to where people were direct and blunt about things and things made sense because they were backed up by evidence.

    The South's culture is not just foreign to me; it is downright alien. The "Yes means maybe and maybe means no" rule looks like hypocrisy from where I'm sitting. Saying one thing and meaning another is just lying, in my book.

    It needs to end. They need to grow up and face reality instead of hiding from it.

    And today, especially, I hate their culture and I hate their hypocrisy and I hate them for once again trying to make me a nonperson while lying about why they did it.

    "You're on your own" within the context of a society IS sociopathic. - kovie
