  •  You did say(state) that. You stated that of people (0+ / 0-)

    exposed to a culture, STATISTICALLY, a certain percentage would become schizophrenic.

    •  Yeah, but you came up with 40%. (0+ / 0-)

      If you look at the Wikipedia on schizophrenia, you get:

      The onset of symptoms typically occurs in young adulthood, with a global lifetime prevalence of about 0.3–0.7%.[2]
      Debunking your mistakes is starting to make me wonder if you are merely wrong or you have an agenda here.

      Just sayin :-)

      •  I did not state 40%. I did not give any %. (0+ / 0-)

        Somebody else guessed about 40%. I do not agree. That is not statisically valid.

        I do not make mistakes about statistics or mental illness.

        Please link to my comment about 40%. None.

        My agenda: the bots are not all mentally ill, unless they have been diagnosed by an MD.

        You are treating ill people that have a brain disease, a disease where their brain is physically hurt, or hormones are not in balance, WHICH THEY HAVE NO CHOICE OVER, with bots that prefer to stay ignorant, and follow orders.

        My further agenda: You have shown zero empathy and zero attempt to understand the postings to you.

        Still further: You used statistics incorrectly.

          I quoted the ~1% stated on Wikipedia. Another poster backed than up in an otherwise critical post.

          Someone other than me, as you declare in your post, stated the 40%. So, where exactly did I misuse statistics?

          I just don't see it.

          ---------------------

          Look, I'm  sorry that you find my defense of what I consider to be a defensible position has "zero empathy". But, this is a brutal poltiical board, and all that I have gotten in this thread is attacks, being misunderstood, and demands that I retract this OP. Do you think that might have something to do with your perception that I have "zero empathy"?

          I'm just standing my ground, with logic, in a  nasty fight on a political board. Who do you think I am? Mahatma Gandhi? Every time I complain about unfair treatment on Kos, I get told I'm a whiner. I get told to be tough.

          Now I am tough, and I'm told I lack empathy.

          You can't please everyone; so I will please myself.

          I try to give no more offense than is to unavoidable on DKos.
