Comment on A Small GMO Victory by Bob

Thu, 07 Nov 2013 14:42:23 +0000

First, thanks for reading and commenting! Second, if you wish to make claims, please provide some references that support your claims. That's the only way we could have a reasonable discussion. By references I mean actual independent, peer reviewed studies (not, Mercola, Seralini, Natural News, etc.). Third, my main point is that typical of most people who espouse annti-GMO opinions do so based on false data rooted in fears of science and corporations and promoted by people with little understanding and lots to gain, like Jeffery Smith. You didn't really address that point, you just trotted out the old Argumentum ad Monsantium: http://www.skepticblog.org/2012/11/08/argumentum-ad-monsantium/

Genetically-modified food is a blight on this planet, Bob. The website you provided is owned by two members of the biotech industry themselves whom have a financial stake in it's existence. It is therefore no wonder they provide flawed industry-funded studies to refute a clear threat to their business model. There are tenfold the amount of independent studies with no conflicts of interest that show some serious concerns regarding GMO's. Posting studies done by the biotech industry claiming their products are safe(Agent Orange?), and taking their word for it, is unwise at best. If you want to be a skeptic, that's great, but at least start looking for non-bias material. -Jake



Comment on I’ve Been Workin’ on the IPad by Bob

I did pretty well with the iPad. But there were a few things I couldn't well in the time my MacBook Pro was in the shop without having access to either the files on the laptop or already have them in the cloud somewhere. So, that was just poor planning on my part. I also have a few websites that are still flat html pages and I use Dreamweaver to update. I couldn't find a good editor for the iPad. I still find it awkward to switch between apps quickly and I'm used to having multiple windows open to just glance at things such as Terminal where I do server monitoring. But I did stretch my capacity on the iPad and will feel more comfortable using it productively in the future.

What a coincidence. I've been advised that my 6 year old IMac will have to be replaced soon (apparently you can't even buy a new video card for it anymore). An iPad with an ergo keyboard is one of the solutions I'm considering. Let us know of any problems. Thanks!

Indeed. Cynicism indicates a closed mind. A skeptic approaches everything with an open mind.

It's unfortunate that skepticism is so often conflated with cynicism.
