First off, did anybody think that maybe this was a trick question? Nobody's really immune to propaganda and advertising, or anything related to that as a matter of fact. One person said that propaganda and advertising presents facts -- and this is true. Sometimes the facts aren't straight, and sometimes they're straight up lies which we can usually find out easily. There was a politician that said something about women being in the kitchen and pregnant all the time, or something like this. This was on another candidate's message and people were like: "Whoa, what?!" but the attacked politician was actually quoting the Bible. Now, did people do some critical thinking to go "what the...I'm looking this guy up"? Yes they did. The media, both conservative and liberal (because no media I know, even Vermont's Libertarians would support this) went on this. Now, there are a few who didn't obviously, and so we do lack some critical thinkers. However, on a bigger picture, let's test your critical thinking skills. Here is a picture when George W. Bush when he delivered one of his State of the Union Addresses: Now tell me, does this image seem to support Bush and his position, or degrade it a little compared to some of his other State of the Union address images on Google or whatever? =========================================================================== Also, I think we don't have very good examples of inductive or deductive reasoning: Deductive Reasoning: If the Law of Conservation of Mass states that mass cannot be created or destroyed, and mass disappears within black holes, then there must be another vortex or portal that creates mass to replace the mass lost, or moves the mass through this new portal. Inductive Reasoning: If I set a scale that calculates mass and even it out with another scale that has fireworks and other fun explosives within it, and I ignite them and do not let a single atom of anything escape, and the scale does not shift, then mass must have been conserved even if it changes state. =========================================================================== 3rd Edit: I would like if everybody who voted "Yes" or the active users who voted "Yes" answer me just simply about the question regarding the picture.
