Wouldn't it be great if you could develop a product that didn't require you to change the definition of the product in order to convince people it works?

Huge numbers of people in this country have educations in science. Do they think only their employees are qualified to understand the subject?

Funny thing about "scientists". Having learned and applied science in my job I never once called myself one. Nor have I ever heard a co-worker call themselves one regardless of their level of education or field of endeavor. Scientist is not an official title. There is no place on a diploma where it says you are a scientist.

Use of this "scientist" term is unsound logic. On the one hand implying only scientists can understand evidence is an appeal to authority. On the other implying someone can't comprehend it due to not being a scientist is an ad hominem attack. Both examples are known as unsound fallacies and mark those using such tactics as being ignorant fools.

Quote:
Appeal to Authority logical fallacy and Argument from Authority are the same form of discussion argument in which person producing a claim referencing the opinion of an authority as evidence to support an argument.

Ad hominem, short for argumentum ad hominem, is a logical fallacy that is based on personal and irrelevant attacks against the source of an argument, instead of addressing the argument itself.

As a guy with three scientists in my family, two of which are flaming liberals, I find this post to be excellent and right on the money. Thank you, Sir. It is truth.
