Science is awesome I agree with you, but you do not need to promote it, as any religion would do (islam the biggest religion, christians are the best, jews are awesome), you are sounding more like a religious preacher than anything else...

???? are you comparing promoting science to promoting religion?
How exactly sharing links on interesting science stuff has anything to do with religion? Doesn't make any sense

I just see you are all the time sharing links, like if science had to justify itself... like any religious preacher does, when he is trying to convince people about something.

So lets assume i am a religious preacher. Based on the 8 videos i shared on this thread, what would you say i am trying to convince you of?
If you are going to make claims like "i am a religious preacher", you should have the decency explain yourself. How is sharing videos about "how do cameleons change color" and "how much does a shadow weight" has anything to do with convincing people of something, or "like if science had to justify itself".

Personally, I don't really mind if ch shares science links, because most of science I actually like.

On the other hand, I can see the comparisons Panda is making. It's also fair to note that if a religious person created a thread sharing a bunch of links about their religion the hate response would likely be enormous.

Well if i was sharing anti-theist links of people saying religion is bullshit, then you could have a comparison with a religious guy sharing religious links.
But i'm sharing links about science for newton's sake, i don't think that you will even hear a single time the word god or religion in these videos.

edit: now granted, sometimes science upsets religious people, but not everything is about them or their religion.

I think you get what I meant, Most of your posts are just sharing links, and if you think you can convince people that way you are wrong here. I am not against your opinion, just the way you are expressing them. Eklipse is totally right.

Also Juq, your comments are more and more pointless, you should start worrying!

I am not sharing any opinion here so stop being ridiculus. I made this thread to share cool scientific stuff, and if you have some scientific and interesting stuff to share, go ahead. Othewise, you can fuck off, i'm sick with your stupid accusations.

By posting "science is awesome" you are making a subjective statement, in other words yes you are actually sharing an opinion. Who is the most ridiculous here? And do not be rude, you know that using an offensive language is not tolerated here.

Most of CGP Grey's videos are pretty good, but he usually focuses more on history and politics than science.

CGP is a great informer, but I just like his videos because of him more than the content.

I am not very interested in science, I prefer history / geography / modern studies.

But I have a lot of respect for science, and the people that contributed to it. This thread does not deserve the level of hate that it gets.

(On a side not, I like WonderWhy. He doesn't upload often, but his accent is terrific!)
