    Also, Tang comes in dozens of flavors now (including Horchata, yum) so it can be made to fit your tastes.

    Then you really need to read the post again, the MAMAM is about correcting their science, which is horrible, not about excusing Monsanto.

    If you are that staunch about “evil is evil” then I’m not sure how you live in the world because literally everything harms someone.

    And why Data hated Geordi… no, wait.

  • mrmisconception posted a new activity comment 3 years ago

    I didn’t see anyone state or even imply that Monsanto does no harm, just that they are not the evil that their opponents insist they are. They are a huge multinational corporation so of course they are far from goodness and light, some of their business practices are downright deplorable, but that doesn’t change the truth about GMO safety.

    Have fun with that, while you’re at it maybe you can figure out how only the people who are shitting themselves about GMOs could be made to pay for that labeling that you want. Like maybe the voluntary labeling that has already begun and not my tax dollars, K?

    Yes, because comically wrong science is OK if you are fighting Teh Ebil

    Name another company that is doing GE that these hucksters wouldn’t see as evil? I can’t come up with any. Monsanto may be the boogie man but there are other firms that are arguably worse (ADM comes to mind) and while that doesn’t excuse Monsanto is does point out the…[Read more]

    • It’s a variation of the anti-vax argument: “The corporation involved with this is evil, ergo the science must be bad.” It’s like a modern twist on a classic fallacy; we can call it ad corporatum.

      Monsanto could be holding Satanic black masses complete with human sacrifices at their weekly board meetings, and it STILL wouldn’t mean anything…[Read more]

    Yes weeds evolve, that is how it works and how it would work without GMOs. In fact, according to the International Survey of Herbicide Resistance Weeds all areas surveyed have multiple weeds resistant to herbicides, even areas where GMOs are banned and even before the wide spread use of GMOs. Overuse of herbicides is an issue but that is not…[Read more]

    I realize that you may have been talking about Bt corn which produces a pesticide that allows farmers to use less pesticide. Again, the possible unintended consequences are no bigger then in conventional breeding, and I say actually lower because they are testing the hell out of this particular product.

  • mrmisconception posted a new activity comment 3 years ago

    I don’t have a scientific background but I can see right away that you have a misconception about Roundup ready plants.

    They are not dependent upon a certain pesticide, they are resistant to that pesticide allowing the farmer to use that pesticide without worrying that it will kill the crop, which it normally would do, (that can lead to over…[Read more]

    • Actually, from what I hear, the weeds are becoming increasingly resistant to Roundup due to the use of Monsanto Round-Up Ready crops, and these “superweeds” require farmers to spray ever higher quantities of weedkiller to kill them. This gets on the crops and into the environment. I hear it is such a problem that they are trying to breed crops…[Read more]

    • There are many problems with the way GMOs are being used but they stem from over-reliance on corporations and deregulation of those corporations, in other words symptoms of capitalism, not from the organisms themselves.

      I was going to say this but you said it better than I could. Cheers.

    Your opinion is duly noted, please excuse me for not sharing it.

    Yes, we wouldn’t want a good word like pedophile sullied like that.

    And friends of rapists.

  • mrmisconception posted a new activity comment 3 years ago

    I went back to reread the article from 2011 and there is DJ Grothe defending Krauss. No wonder Grothe defended Michael Shermer, he had practice excusing rapists.

    No if you’ll excuse me I need to go vomit in the shower.

    • And friends of rapists.

    • Lawrence Krauss, along with Shermer, was also accused at the time of questionable behavior.

      He then, like Shermer, apparently threatened lawsuits.

      Grothe has himself said quite a few questionable things in the past.

    Your entire first paragraph could describe aspartame just as readily as gluten. The only real difference is that gluten sensitivity has been given credibility (in some cases by those trying to cash in on the fad) while aspartame sensitivity is relegated to the fringes of Natural News.

    It’s all about perspective.

    …and hipsters, or is that redundant?

    • The great thing about hipsters as a LAP is that you can just relabel anything you don’t like as hipster, and thus fitting the model.

      • I recently heard that not being a hipster is the new hipster. That should pretty much cover everyone.

        BTW, if no one got my joke, I was referring to the featured image at the top of the page. If *everyone* got it, I apologize for bashing you with it.

    Interesting, you have just called me a hypocrite for making an argument I didn’t make and then said that I accused my opponents (believing that to be you perhaps?) of thinking in black and white. I actual said that things aren’t black and white so I’m really not sure what you’re on about with that.

      Could you please show me where I said that you said that? Don’t put words in my mouth and don’t build straw men to topple because you can’t defend your own arguments. If you can’t be bothered to check to see if what you are writing…[Read more]

    There is a huge difference between disallowing those who are attacking your person and those who disagree with you and I think you know that.
