I think some of my questions are deleted because it's "too obvious" which one is right and wrong.
The truth is I was not trolling. While I think it's obvious, others do not find it obvious. People tend to believe falsehood when it supports their political agenda. Hence no matter how obvious something is, a lot of people think it's false.
For example, I asked whether minimum wage affect salary of those whose salary are higher than minimum wage. You think that's obviously yes.
Well, what happened is I was arguing with a socialist. I explained that jobs are moving to China because American workers are overpriced due to minimum wage. The socialist in economist forum claim that minimum wage has little effect anyway because very few works for minimum wage
So I thought I'll ask sceptic and nail that down once and for all. You guessed that, the question is closed for being too obvious. Notice I was arguing with an economist there. Even they doubt it.
I asked whether poverty has adverse effect on child's well being. Basically rich parents have rich kids. Is it obvious? Yes. Is it obvious for everyone? No.
I once argued with a socialist that welfare program is not really necessary. Just allow the rich to rent women to breed biological children through market mechanism. Rich parents have rich kids. There goes poverty.
The socialist then argue that it won't solve problem because your wealth is not decided by your genes but by "quality time" with dad. Arguing is useless. Gene what? All I assume is rich parents have richer kids.
By the way, this is what OddThinking said:
"No, I do not think I am saying that first sentence. I am saying there needs to be someone making a claim that you are dubious about. Nobody is dubious that poor people tend to have poor children. No conflict = no motivation. Some people believe that same-sex parents are detrimental to the welfare of the children, and some are dubious, so there is something worth looking at. "
Well some people are dubious that poor people tend to have poor children.
Again I thought I'll just nail that down in sceptic stack exchange forum so I can show him that it's too obviously true. Guess what, it's so obvious the question is deleted.
So you see, yea I asked questions that's obvious. However, trust me on this. Somebody would think it's false. Seriously.
Basically I simply question all claims that justify violation of individual freedom. Am I the only one doing it here? Is that always off topic?
As for whether the guy behind facebook is the real God, that's NOT obvious. C'mon. Yea it's obvious for you because most of you are atheists.
Other similar claims are not *obviously false for everyone *. If the other similar claims (Torah, Gospel, Quran) are not obviously false, how come this one is obviously false?
I used to spend half of my life believing bible is 100% true. I know it's not true. But there is no way it's obvious.
