There is some wisdom in your words. In the sense that Webmd and clones often endorse quackery. If you want quick easy answers on what causes nausea Webmd is great.
I try to strike a balance between quality and speed. The main problem with the peer reviewed process is it it slow. Since lies are faster than facts often by an order of magnitude by the time the truth gets around lies have already done their damage and made good science irrelevant.
Rebelnews is a questionable source.
"Overall, we rate Rebel News Right Biased and Questionable based on the promotion of propaganda, conspiracy theories, poor sourcing, and several failed fact checks."
So many extreme bias low factual websites no wonder there is so much polarization and fragmentation.
First, there are multiple schools of thoughts in feminism. Some do contradict each other but they all have the same goal of gender equality. Just as there is the theory of abiogenesis, with multiple mutually exclusive ways abiogenesis could have occurred but all supporting the abiogenesis hypothesis.
One example is some feminist focus on the sexual revolution and see slut walks as good other see them as sexual objectification and as a step backwards.
Personally, I focus on economic equity and the gender pay gap. Why are cashiers which are more likely to be female paid less than usually males who stock the shelves?
Older women really get hit hard when they have less social security and retirement money. This is why we need more babysitting services and government health care.
"3 Why do you focus on[a] the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the beam that is in your own eye? 4"
Latter-Day Saints are infamous for their child sex abuse cover ups.
"Protesters demand Utah require clergy to report sex abuse"
Young Earth Creationism, YEC is false and a conspiracy theory. That's why it is so difficult to convince them otherwise.
"But I would argue that the present-day creationist movement is a fully fledged conspiracy theory. It meets all the criteria, offering a complete parallel universe with its own organisations and rules of evidence, and claims that the scientific establishment promoting evolution is an arrogant and morally corrupt elite.
This so-called elite supposedly conspires to monopolise academic employment and research grants. Its alleged objective is to deny divine authority, and the ultimate beneficiary and prime mover is Satan." Braterman, Paul
I am going to start asking my friends for help. I honestly don't know how to convince someone who believes the above. Generally, it is genius to wrap religious beliefs in a conspiracy.
That way the ideas are self-sealing and immune to evidence. This is how religion will easily survive and thrive in the future. Conspiracy thinking will prevail.
"We also rate them Questionable and factually mixed due to poor sourcing, holding editorial positions contrary to scientific consensus, and numerous failed fact checks."
Just spam as many articles in a person's favor? This is confirmation bias. I'm considering I may be part of the problem by responding, as in don't feed the trolls.
I am not going to even try to respond to this verbose gish gallop argument. Instead, I am trying the strategy of just focusing on the most erroneous.
"A new study provides further evidence that transgender Americans face much higher rates of violent crime than their cisgender peers."
This is even more so for Black transgenders.
"In 2018, according to the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), 26 transgender people suffered violent deaths in the U.S., a majority of them were black trans women. So far in 2019, seven transgender people have been violently killed, according to the HRC. All the victims in 2019 were black trans women. "
Please stop spreading this cherry picked misinformation. By focusing on the few crimes LGBT commit your argument is ignoring the hate crimes against those groups of people. Lies, lies, and more lies is why there is so much hate against racialized minoritized people, Black trans woman.
Truth fullness and honesty should be a top priority for a Christian.
Taking a step back Dr_Batman is using the gish gallop or firehose of misinformation. Brandolini's law is in effect. I've never been able to defeat this strategy in the past, usually I just fold.
"It states that "The amount of energy needed to refute bullshit is an order of magnitude bigger than that needed to produce it."
In other words it is going to take about 10x the effort to debunk.
Violence against LGBT is high and mostly committed by straight cis gender men.
This is a cherry picking. Yes, some LGBT are violence criminals. Yet, focusing on the few criminals of the minoritized group while ignoring the much more violent majority demographic is a major cherry picking fallacy.
"A man who killed a lesbian couple in Oregon and a man in California has died on death row at the Oregon State Penitentiary, authorities said."
